Multiple Traffic Accident Outside The Greater St. Louis Area
Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC
Two fatal traffic
accidents happened just outside the Greater St. Louis area over the weekend. In
St. Peters, a driver was killed while traveling westbound on Salt River
Road. Officials say the 78-year-old male driver crossed the centerline
and collided head-on with a pickup truck. Central County Fire said the
victim died at the scene of the crash. There is no information on the
driver of the pickup truck.
Another traffic accident occurred in O’Fallon, Illinois on Route
50 at Scott Troy Road. Authorities in St. Clair County say a multiple-vehicle
accident has left one person dead and several others injured. Police say
an argument inside a tractor-trailer cab between a man and a woman caused
the six-vehicle crash. Officials say one person was killed and four others
were taken to a nearby hospital. Police identified the victim as a 67-year-old
woman driving a Ford Escape. The four others injured are expected to recover.
Witness say the semi-truck was speeding and that a female jumped out of
the cab just before the accident. The driver of the tractor-trailer was
taken into police custody where he remains awaiting formal charges. Illinois
police say the crash site was spread for nearly a quarter-mile.
