ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - A police squad car strikes and kills a pedestrian on Interstate 70 in Saint Charles County.

Witnesses told Missouri highway patrol investigators they saw the person trying to cross the westbound lanes from north to south, before being hit.

It happened around 10:15 and had that stretch of westbound I-70 closed at Zumbehl for several hours.

The Saint Charles County police officer was said to be "shaken-up" but did not need a hospital visit.

The name of the person killed in the accident could be released later today.
