The State Police have confirmed a fatality in a morning wreck on Interstate 630 in the eastbound lanes near Pine Street.

UPDATE: Here's the fatality report, which says a wheel came off a westbound 1998 Ford van driven by Katherine Williams, 56, of Scott. It hit the windshield of an eastbound Hyundai driven by Peter Gee, 52, a UAMS employee. His car stopped near the Pine Street exit and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
