Multi-vehicle crash leads to eastbound I-44 closure in mid-Missouri


WEBSTER COUNTY, MO - Eastbound I-44 is closed at Mile Marker 106, just east of Marshfield, Sunday night after a traffic crash involving multiple vehicles. The closure is expected to last through the night so the incident can be cleaned up and investigated and roads can be treated. There is no word on injuries from this crash.

All eastbound I-44 traffic is being diverted at Marshfield, at Mile Marker 100. Detoured traffic will be using Route 38 to Webster County, Route CC to Conway, then back onto I-44 at Mile Marker 113.

This is just one of several multi-vehicle crashes on I-44 Sunday. Snow and slick roads were a factor. At least one person was in a 12 vehicle crash on eastbound Interstate 44 just east of Lebanon. At least eleven other people have been injured.
