I-270 at Manchester

ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- A deadly crash closed lanes of Interstate 270 in West County Sunday evening, as snow and cold temperatures cause accidents and slow travel across the St. Louis area. 

One person is dead after a multi-vehicle crash on I-270 northbound near Manchester Road, officials said. It is not yet known if anyone else was injured.

MoDOT said the accident was reported at 3:15 p.m. and caused delays for over two hours. All lanes are now open.

Two lanes were also closed on I-270 eastbound past I-170 due to a vehicle crash.

The St. Louis County Police Department and the City of St. Louis both tweeted crews will be salting residential streets after major roads. 

Another accident on I-270 near West Florissant caused delays earlier Sunday afternoon.
