By  | 

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) Modot reopened the westbound lanes of I-44 over Kearney Street just before 8:30 Friday morning.

The highway was closed after a crash between a car and a
tractor-trailer. The truck burst into flames. Fuel also spilled onto the highway.

It took crews more than seven hours to clean up the mess.

Kearney Street under I-44 was also closed because water from fire hoses spilled onto Kearney. The road was shutdown through morning rush hour.

Springfield police say no one was hurt in the crash.
