Thursday afternoon turned into a tragedy following a fiery vehicle crash, which killed one local teenager. Furthermore, 18-year-old, Eryk Campbell of Olive Street in St. Louis was killed when he ran a red light with his vehicle. The tragic accident happened on Page Boulevard near Newstead when Campbell went speeding through an intersection in his Pontiac Grand Prix.
As Campbell approached North Taylor Avenue the signal turned red, and thus he ignored the sign, and proceeded through the intersection. Subsequently, Campbell swerved to avoid being hit by another vehicle traveling north, and lost control of his vehicle, went into oncoming traffic, hit a light pole, and fence. As a result of the horrific crash, Campbell's vehicle then caught fire towards the back of the car. Sadly, Campbell died from injuries sustained in the crash, and was killed on impact and not from burns. He was the only occupant in the vehicle.
