Two Accidents Sunday Night on Chain of Rocks Bridge

St Louis (KMOX) There were 2 accidents Sunday evening on the Chain of Rocks Bridge in north St Louis that had traffic jammed in both directions approaching the bridge.

The first crash-according to reports posted on a Twitter account dedicated to the bridge-occurred just before 6 o’clock-blocking the westbound lanes.

Shortly after it was cleared, the second crash occurred, just after 7pm. It had westbound lanes closed for close to an hour. Eastbound lanes were also closed for a time. Some emergency responders were slowed getting to the accident because of the long traffic tie-ups.
