ST. LOUIS (AP) – Two lanes of I-70 westbound traffic have reopened near St. Charles after a car struck and killed a pedestrian who was walking on the highway.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the driver who hit the pedestrian stopped and called police around 7 p.m. Sunday. It wasn’t immediately clear why the man was on the highway.

Traffic was squeezing through the two open westbound lanes during the police investigation. All lanes were open about two hours later.
