Tanker truck hits MoDOT truck, shuts down I-55 at Bayless

SOUTH ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – An accident at southbound I-55 at Bayless has shut the highway down. Officials say a tanker truck collided with a MoDOT plow.

There is a leak in the back of the tanker as a result of a scrap with the MoDOT plow. There is a creek nearby and now crews are using sandbags to keep that fuel from going into the creek. It is unclear how long I-55 at Bayless will be closed.
