One person is dead, and four others were injured in a traffic accident over the weekend in St. Louis.

Officials say four people were taken to the hospital where later one victim died. Officials say the deceased was a 23-year-old female.

Police say a suspect who fled the scene of the multiple-vehicle accident was found at a nearby hospital and was taken into custody. Police say the 24-year-old man is being charged with leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident and is being held on a $75,000 cash-only bond.
