As if being shot was not bad enough, a St. Louis shooting victim was tragically killed in a car crash en route to the hospital. Furthermore, the St. Louis, Missouri man was shot at a metro east nightclub located in Venice, Illinois on Sunday morning. The driver of the car that was taking the man to the hospital began to speed, lost control of the vehicle, and struck several utility poles at Madison Avenue and 15th Street in Granite City, Illinois.
As a result of the car crash, the vehicle flipped over. 38-year-old, Lonnie Roberson was the passenger in the vehicle that was shot and was killed at the scene. Following an autopsy, Roberson suffered a single gunshot to the right knee, and the crash killed him, not being shot in the leg. No word was said about the condition of the driver of the vehicle.
