Police weren't releasing details late Thursday about a morning wreck that blocked traffic on Interstate 55 near the Cape Girardeau Regional Airport.

Inquiries to Cape Girardeau police and the Missouri State Highway Patrol about the accident were directed to the Scott City Police Department, the agency that investigated the accident. But Scott City police said Thursday afternoon that a report wouldn't be ready until today, and no details would be released until then.

The accident, which happened during the morning commute before 8 a.m., blocked traffic on the interstate.
