This morning, Tuesday, August 5, around 12:30 AM, a tragic car accident on Interstate 70 in North St. Louis left one person dead. According to law enforcement, the car was speeding when it started to swerve. The car crossed traffic lanes and collided with a guard rail. The car spun, and rolled backwards down an embankment and through a fence. One of the passengers, a thirty-one year old man, died at the scene. The driver and other passengers were transported to a hospital where they remain in critical condition. Police continue to investigate.
Tragedies such as this alert our community to the danger and responsibility in operating a motor vehicle. Missouri law requires the highest standard of care in operating a vehicle. More than what a reasonable driver would do, the highest standard of care requires responsibility and attention when driving. This protects not only drivers, but passengers, pedestrians, cyclists, and other vehicles. As this morning's crash shows, tragedy happens quickly when a vehicle loses control.
