Late this morning, there was a police pursuit that lead to a crash eastbound between the Lilac and Riverview exits that happened shortly after 11:00 and took little more than a hour to clear.  While no additional word regarding the pursuit has been released, one lane was blocked until the activity cleared at 12:20, causing delays that backed up traffic to Route 367.

This incident only adds to the string of incidents between Route 367 and Riverview that has happened since the first week of February, and that incident was not the only one that happened today.  @StLouisTraffic reported two other incidents at the Lilac exit today but both were on the exit ramps and not on the mainline.  The most recent MoDOT report listed at least 10 incidents on that section just for last month but an exact count is not provided (data is on page 7).
