Town and Country, Mo(KSDK) - Traffic was blocked early Thursday after a car spun out and slammed into a guard rail while trying to exit one highway onto another.

Officials say the driver was westbound on I-64 and taking the exit ramp onto north and south bound I-270 in Town and Country when the crash occurred.

Preliminary indications suggest the driver lost control and struck the railing which then sent the car spinning. The vehicle involved caught fire for a short time, but was quickly extinguished by emergency responders.

Two people inside the car were injured and transported to area hospitals with non life threatening injuries.

Investigators are looking into what caused the driver to lose control of the vehicle.

The ramp reopened around 4:50 a.m.
