Meyerkord, Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation

A 47-year-old man from St. Louis County has been charged after he struck and killed a pedestrian before fleeing the scene on Saturday. The 47-year-male is being held in custody while his bail is set at $45,000 after being charged with involuntary manslaughter, leaving the scene of an accident and driving while revoked. According to authorities, the man in custody was driving a pickup truck west on Chambers Road just west of Green Valley Drive when he struck a 17-year-old male from St. Louis County around 7:30 p.m. Saturday evening. The injured male was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead shortly thereafter. The pickup truck fled the scene, but not before a witness was able to record the license plate number. Authorities were able to link the license plate number to a home in north St. Louis County where they found the vehicle in question with extensive damage.
