Categorized as Auto Accidents

St Louis, MO (December 14, 2021) – An auto accident reported in the St Louis area left two people injured. At around 4 p.m., on December 13, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Interstate 270.

Reports from authorities indicate that a 2014 Honda CRV and a 2021 Jeep Cherokee collided on the southbound side of Interstate 270 just north of Highway 21. The incident prompted crews to secure the area as they worked to clear the scene.

The drivers of both vehicles were injured. EMS transported 31-year-old Alyssa Temple and 66-year-old James Laury to Mercy Hospital South for the treatment of injuries.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Alyssa Temple and James Laury at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
