St Charles, MO (December 28, 2021) – Two people were transported to an area hospital for the treatment of injuries following a motor vehicle accident in the St Charles area on Tuesday morning. Just after 8 a.m., on December 28, calls for assistance came in surrounding a crash on Interstate 70.
Reports from Missouri State Highway Patrol show that the driver of a 2010 Ford Edge lost control of their vehicle while traveling east on Interstate 70. As a result, the vehicle collided with a 2018 Chevrolet Equinox near Cave Springs Boulevard. The impact of the crash caused the Chevrolet to crash into a concrete median. A 2016 Mazda CX5 then collided with a 2017 Ford F-150, which caused the Mazda to strike the Chevrolet.
Two people involved in the crash were injured. EMS transported 29-year-old Shelby Reynoso and 40-year-old Jamie Warren to Barnes Hospital in St Peters for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Shelby Reynoso and Jamie Warren at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
We see tens of thousands of people injured in motor vehicle accidents across the state of Missouri due to the negligence of other drivers. In fact, over 80% of collisions involve some form of negligence.
In Missouri, some of the leading causes of crashes include:
- Drivers who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Drivers who are speeding
- Drivers who fail to yield the right of way
- Drivers who are distracted by phones and other objects
These and other acts of negligence often lead to life-altering crashes that force victims out of work for several weeks. When people suffer spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and even traumatic brain injuries, they often require long-term care as well. In some instances, victims may have legal options available to help them move forward.
When victims are harmed in accidents, through no fault of their own, they may have legal options available to recover. Working with a responsive St Charles car accident attorney can help to ensure you are in the best position possible to get justice.
