A series of minor accidents backed up traffic on eastbound I-70 between mile markers 150 and 158 near Kingdom City in Callaway County early Friday evening. While traffic was backed up, a woman driving a car rear-ended a semi-truck. The woman was life-flighted to University Hospital with critical injuries.

The scene was cleared after 7:00 Friday night.

An ABC 17 News viewer sent in this photo of a life flight helicopter at the scene.
