Bucket truck hits I-64 overpass in Chesterfield

By Matt Sepic, KWMU

St. Louis – MODOT closed an Interstate 64 overpass in Chesterfield Tuesday morning after a bucket truck hit the bridge.

No one was injured, but MODOT spokesman Andrew Gates said damage to the Spirit of St. Louis Boulevard overpass was severe.

"When the bucket truck struck the overpass, it punched four-foot holes through two girders."

Workers had to close all of eastbound I-64 temporarily so they could remove the truck.

Gates said the overpass will be closed indefinitely.
