   Drivers may still face delays along Interstate 70 near Lambert Airport while police work the scene of a fiery crash on an outer road.  

   Police say the accident on Natural Bridge at Woodson resulted from a police pursuit.  About 2:00 a.m. a car evading a police stop plowed into a light standard and burst into flames.  

   Fox 2 News is reporting that a police officer was shot when emergency crews approached the burning car and tried to put out the fire.  That officer was reportedly wearing a vest and wasn't seriously injured.  Police had to back off until the gunfire subsided.  

   The car was completely destroyed in the fire.  Someone inside that car apparently died, as the St. Louis County Medical Examiner was called to the scene.  

   Natural Bridge Road remains closed at Woodson.  But all lanes of I-70 have reopened in both directions.

   Another interstate closure will delay drivers in the metro-east this weekend.  

   The Illinois Department of Transportation will shut down westbound Interstate 55/70 between IL Rte. 203 and the I-64 merge starting at 9:00 p.m. Friday.  

   Eastbound Interstate 64 will remain closed this weekend between 25th Street the split.  

   Detours using Interstate 255 will be marked.  

   Both closures are related to the new Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge over the Mississippi River.  Both highways should reopen by Monday morning; Westbound I-55/70 by 5:00 a.m.. Eastbound I-64 by 9:00 a.m.

A tractor-trailer fire caused delays for drivers along Interstate 44 in the City of St. Louis overnight.

Crews had to closed eastbound I-44 at Vandeventer just before midnight while emergency crews worked to contain it. The right two lanes reopened about 12:30 a.m. but the left lane remained closed.

It's not clear what sparked the fire, but the tractor and trailer appear to be total losses. Both have burned down to their metal frames.

There's no word of any injuries.
