A 45-year-old man walking across Interstate 70 on Thursday afternoon was seriously injured.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Michael Goehri, of Weldon Spring, was struck by a 23-year-old woman from St. Charles driving a Toyota Solara. The accident occurred around 3:30 p.m. near the 5th Street exit.
Missouri Department of Transportation officials were forced to close down several westbound lanes of I-70 as the accident was cleaned up, which caused backups along the highway.
Goehri was taken to Mercy Hospital via ambulance. His condition at this time is unknown.
The incident was initially reported by Fox 2 News.
