St. Louis, MO (November 5, 2021) – An auto accident reported in St. Louis left several people injured on Friday morning, according to local law enforcement. At around 7:45 a.m., on November 5, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Interstate 70.

Reports from local authorities indicate that a collision between a 2021 Tesla Model Y, a 2019 Nissan Rogue, a 1998 Dodge Ram pickup truck, and a 2006 Dodge Charger occurred on Interstate 70 just west of Interstate 270.

The crash left several people injured. A male under 1-year-old was transported to St. Louis Children’s hospital with serious injuries. 21-year-old Cat Tierney was transported to SSM Health St. Joseph Hospital St. Charles by ambulance for the treatment of moderate injuries. 43-year-old Pashshayev Nurillohon was transported to the same hospital for care.
