Charges Brought Against Man Involved in Fatal Crash

Meyerkord & Kurth, LLC: A Legacy of Legal Innovation

Criminal charges have been brought against a Granite City man who was involved in an April 18 crash that killed one passenger and left another injured. Specifically, the 36-year-old male was charged this past Friday by the St. Clair County State Attorney's Office with one count of reckless homicide and one count of aggravated driving under the influence of alcohol causing death. According to authorities, on April 18 at around 2:30 am, the 36-year-old male was traveling north on Route 4 near Mud Creek Road in a green 1998 Dodge Ram pickup, when he veered off the road and rolled the truck over into a field. The driver and a passenger, a 21-year-old female from Marissa, were both injured. The driver and the 21-year-old female were initially taken to Sparta Community Hospital before being airlifted to St. Louis University Hospital. Another passenger, a 30-year-old male also from Marissa, was ejected from the truck and pronounced dead at the scene of the accident.
