SULLIVAN, MO – Both eastbound lanes and one westbound lane of I-44 in Sullivan are back open after a multi-vehicle crash caused it to be closed in both directions in east-central Missouri Saturday night. The closure comes just one week after several crashes in slick conditions led to several deaths.

The Missouri Highway Patrol says that all lanes east and westbound on I-44 near the 224 mile marker, Sullivan, MO,  were blocked due a crash involving four tractor trailers. Traffic was diverted onto the outer roads from Bourbon to Sullivan.

The highway patrol says all roads in the area were ice covered. A mix of wintry precipitation was again falling along the I-44 corridor Saturday night,  including sleet and freezing rain.
