A 10-vehicle accident has closed westbound Interstate 70 near the Bryan Road exit in Lake Saint Louis, clogging I-70 with traffic for miles in both directions.

Seven people have been transported to a local hospital.

The crash occurred around noon, and MoDOT estimated the area would remain closed at least until 1 p.m. Multiple police and emergency vehicles were on the scene.

As of 1:15 p.m., MoDOT reported that one west lane was open at mile marker 214, but traffic was backed up for 5 miles in the westbound lanes and slow for 1 mile in the eastbound lanes.

Fox 2 News is on the scene and posting updates on their site.
