Wednesday morning commuters should take alternate routes due to a crash causing a major traffic backup in the westbound lanes of the Martin Luther King Bridge.

Delays began for drivers heading into downtown St. Louis around 8:30 a.m. A News 4 viewer sent over a photo of the crash, which appeared to show a vehicle sideways in the westbound lane blocking traffic.

This is a breaking news story and will be updated as more information becomes available.
