The heavily traveled McKinley Bridge in St. Louis, Missouri was shut down in both directions this morning due to a semi accident. Furthermore, the crash happened just after morning rush hour when a tractor-trailer was heading east towards Illinois when it struck one of the bridges girders. As a result the semis' trailer slid off the truck and hit one of the bridges beams, overturned, and spilt debris all over the road; it was hauling scrap metal and plastic. Likewise, after the trailer incident, the semi also hit an SUV, and came to a rest in the westbound lane. Currently there are no reports thus far of injuries. While the bridge is closed, an engineer is going to assess the damage to the bridge for safety.
