Accidents Across Missouri Leave A Teen Dead And Others Injured
December 27, 2011
A 13-year-old girl died as a result of a car crash early Tuesday morning in St. Louis, Missouri. According to KSDK 5 News, the accident occurred at approximately 12:30 AM along the northbound lanes of Interstate-55.
Police are saying that weather conditions on area roads may have played a part in the crash that killed the teen from Maryland Heights, Missouri. They believe that the 28-year-old male driver of the vehicle she was riding in lost control of the vehicle on the wet, slick asphalt just before hitting a bridge support beam. The driver, along with several other passengers ranging in age from 11 to 30-years-old, were all taken to area hospitals to be treated for serious injuries.
Similar conditions were attributed to another set of accidents in the state along I-70. Police stated the accident occurred when a refrigerated box truck traveling westbound on the highway crashed through a median and collided with two vehicles after crossing the eastbound lanes. Two individuals were taken to a local hospital to be treated for what was described as “minor injuries.”
