A three-vehicle auto accident injured a Lake St. Louis police officer on Monday.

The accident is being investigated, and the cause has yet to be determined.

The chances of being involved in a car accident are very high and according to the Insurance Information Institute, an individual has a chance of 1 in 470 of losing their life in a fatal auto accident. There are thousands of individuals that lose their lives in auto accidents and many more that suffer serious, life-altering injuries. Tragically, most traffic crashes are caused by the negligence of others and could have been prevented. Reckless and negligent driving is a common cause and is often demonstrated by driving under the influence, speeding, distracted driving, and fatigued driving.
