I-70 Reopened after Firey Crash

By AP/KWMU

St. Louis, MO – Both directions of I-70 are back open at Union Boulevard in north St. Louis city.

A tractor-trailer crashed into an abandoned car Monday night and then exploded when it hit a guardrail and concrete pillar.

The driver of that truck died; no names have been released. The accident shut down both directions of I-70 for a while. Westbound 70 opened overnight; eastbound 70 was closed until after 4:00 this morning.
