MARYLAND HEIGHTS, Mo. — An 11-year-old boy walking across southbound Interstate 270 died after he was struck by a car early Tuesday morning.

At around 6:30 a.m., the boy was walking eastbound on the interstate when he stopped in the first lane of traffic, according to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report. 

A 24-year-old woman driving a Volkswagen Jetta tried to stop, but struck the boy. She went to the hospital with minor injuries.

The southbound lanes of Interstate 270 were closed for a few hours near Page Avenue.

The Maryland Heights Police Department warned drivers on Twitter to avoid the area as they were “working a serious accident involving a pedestrian.”

The crash was reported at about 6:30 a.m. and caused a long line of traffic during the morning rush. Just before 10 a.m., the department said the interstate was reopened.
