QUINCY – A truck was rear-ended on Bayview Bridge Friday afternoon, stalling traffic for over 30 minutes for some drivers.

The accident occurred in the eastbound lane coming into Quincy from West Quincy, Mo. a little after 1 pm.

Once traffic movement resumed around 1:45 pm, it moved slowly so both east and west traffic could be accommodated, backing up westbound traffic past Eighth Street in Quincy.

Bayview Bridge is normally a westbound two lane bridge, but it has been used for two-way traffic over the Mississippi Bridge since the Spring when repairs began on the eastbound Memorial Bridge.
