A toddler was killed in a violent
auto crash in St. Louis City. According to St. Louis Police, the fatal accident occurred
on the Missouri side of a downtown St. Louis bridge at approximately 11:05
p.m. on Sunday at Tucker and Cass. According to investigators with the
St. Louis Police Department, a 2006 Hummer H3 and a Mercedes Benz crashed,
causing one to roll onto its side near the entrance of the Stan Musial
Veterans Memorial Bridge. The northbound Hummer traveling on Tucker was
struck by a northbound Mercedes Benz when it crossed over into the lane

onto its side.
A witness spoke to a news reporter and said he heard the crash as he was
changing his tire and rushed to help. Tragically, a toddler was trapped
under the Hummer. Several people were able to reach the little girl, but
she was already deceased. The child was transported to a hospital where
she was pronounced dead. Police report a female passenger of Hummer was
also taken to the hospital for non-serious injuries and was in extreme
