A three-vehicle accident on eastbound I-64 has traffic backed up for miles on the interstate.
One person has been transported for treatment of injuries to a local hospital, according to O'Fallon Fire Chief Brent Saunders. The accident occurred near mile marker 17, east of the North Green Mount Road.
Traffic was already backed up from a car fire about a mile down the interstate just an hour before the crash, Saunders said. Both lanes of the interstate were expected to be opened to traffic by 7:15 p.m.
