ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - A St. Louis man is dead after his car slammed into a MoDOT vehicle early this morning.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol identifies the victim as 30-year-old Lamont Purley.

He lost control of his 2001 Ford Mustang on southbound I-270, struck a median wall, and then crashed into the MoDOT street sweeper.

It happened at 12:30 a.m. Friday just south of St. Charles Rock Road.

Purley was dead at the scene. The driver of the sweeper was treated for minor injuries.

The interstate was closed for several hours as investigators worked the scene, but has now been re-opened.
