For the second day in a row, traffic on the Chain of Rocks bridge ground to a halt due to a motor vehicle accident. The bridge allows traffic to cross over the Mississippi River between Illinois and Missouri.
According to an StlToday.com report, two tractor-trailers collided this morning while travelling eastbound on the Illinois side the bridge. The accident stopped traffic for nearly three hours. Yesterday, a multiple car accident near the same area. In that crash, a semi-truck crashed into another truck, which then collided with another pickup truck.
