ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Area roads remain wet, partially snow covered, and in many cases slick. Those conditions are partially to blame for a number of accidents around the metropolitan St. Louis area.
Police responded to accident scenes in south St. Louis County twice in just a matter of minutes early Monday. One of the incidents was on northbound I-55 where a motorist lost control and slammed into some road signs near the Loughborough exit ramp.
Minutes later, another vehicle went out of control on southbound I-55 at Weber Road and crashed. Neither of those accidents had any serious injuries.
Late Monday morning, an accident on southbound I-270 near Missouri Bottom Road forced closure of all traffic lanes for a time. That incident involves a jack-knifed tractor trailer unit.
Another accident, with injuries, was reported after 5:00 a.m. Monday on eastbound I-270 at Highway 367 in north St. Louis County.
