ST. LOUIS, Mo. -- A woman killed in a crash on Interstate 44 near St. Louis on Monday has been identified as Morgan Ciota, 20, of Creve Coeur.

Ciota was driving eastbound on I-44 near Jefferson on Monday when she lost control of her car and was hit by a semi. Her car was forced into the guardrail.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash closed the eastbound lanes of I-44 for about two hours as crews worked to clean up the scene.

The crash happened as dropping temperatures kept many roads in bad condition following a 10 inch snowfall in St. Louis on Sunday.
