BERKELEY, Mo. (AP) — Two people died in a crash on Interstate 70 in suburban St. Louis that shut down the westbound lanes of the interstate ahead of morning rush-hour traffic, Missouri highway officials said.
The Missouri State Highway Patrol said the two-vehicle crash happened around 4:30 a.m. Thursday near Interstate 170. A stretch of I-70 was closed as an accident reconstruction team was called in to investigate.
Authorities did not immediately release the names of those killed or details of the crash. Authorities did not say when the interstate might reopen.
