EUREKA (KMOX) - Crews spent much of Saturday on I-44 after a crash involving multiple tractor-trailers between Eureka and Pacific.

Drivers called the KMOX newsroom to report major back-ups in the westbound lanes, which were closed for much of Saturday afternoon and evening. The eastbound lanes had two lanes closed for a time to accomodate emergency vehicles.

The incident involved two tractor-trailers and a passenger car. The car and one of the trucks both left the roadway, according to firefighters.
