Morning Accident on Highway 40 Causes Major Delays

Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation

An early morning crash left a 20-year-old man from O-Fallon, Missouri in critical condition and a major highway closed. In the early morning hours of July 2, 2014, sometime before 7:30 am, a 20-year-old male from O-Fallon was traveling eastbound on Highway 40 (Interstate 60) in a pickup truck when traffic slowed for morning congestion just west of the Boone Bridge. According to a Missouri Highway Patrol crash report, the young man failed to slow down fast enough. As a result, the vehicle swerved and slammed into a concrete barrier before flipping several times. Emergency personnel responded to the scene of the accident and the male driver was transported to a nearby hospital. The young man was reportedly not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the accident and suffered serious injuries. Following the accident, at around 7:30 am, authorities shut down eastbound lanes of the highway. Photos from the scene of the accident depict a pickup truck on its side, multiple emergency vehicles and dozens of emergency personnel. The highway remained closed for several hours and caused massive delays for the morning commute.
