KMOV News has posted an update. See below.

Officials with the Missouri State Highway Patrol said the crash may have happened because of a driver going the wrong way. Four people were taken to hospitals with serious injuries.

Interstate 270 was completely shutdown Friday night in north St. Louis County after a wrong way driver caused a crash leaving passengers with serious injuries.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, a 71-year-old woman was driving eastbound in the westbound lanes of I-270 just west of Riverview around 8:30 p.m. when the 22-year-old driver of a 2006 GMC Envoy tried to avoid her but hit her head-on.

The woman’s 1998 Chevrolet S-10 then overturned and hit a median barrier. The woman’s injuries were moderate.

The 22-year-old had four people in his vehicle. None of them were wearing seat belts and two of them were seriously injured.

Only five minutes later, the driver of a 1991 Ford Mustang couldn’t stop in time for the blocked lanes and hit the 71-year-old woman’s Chevrolet. The Mustang driver was seriously injured.

Westbound I-270 was completely shutdown at Riverview as well as the eastbound lanes of I-270 near Lilac.

All seven people involved in the accidents were taken to local hospitals.
