Crash on I-70 westbound causes backup
COLUMBIA - A multi-vehicle crash Saturday evening closed both westbound lanes of I-70, though one lane had reopened. Five vehicles were damaged.
The crash caused a large backup between the Highway 63 connector and the Lake of the Woods exit.
The Columbia Police Department said they got the call at about 8 p.m., but since they were in the middle of a shift change meeting, it took them about 10 minutes to arrive at the scene.
One viewer said they were at a standstill for about 20 minutes.
Two people were sent to the hospital with minor injuries.
