St Louis, MO (November 20, 2021) – Two people were left with injuries following a motor vehicle accident in the St Louis area on Friday morning that ended in injuries. Just after midnight on November 19, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was requested on-site at a crash on Interstate 44.
Reports from authorities show that a 2011 Chevrolet Cruze was involved in a motor vehicle accident on the westbound side of Interstate 44 just east of Antire Road. The incident caused moderate delays in the area as crews worked to clear the roadway.
Two people involved in the accident were injured. 21-year-old Aliya Coons of Protem, Missouri, and 21-year-old Haylee Hughes of Lonedell, Missouri were both transported to SSM Health St Clare Hospital for further care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Haylee Hughes and Aliya Coons at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Thousands of motorists are involved in collisions throughout the state of Missouri each year. Although not all accidents end in catastrophic injuries, a fair share of these accidents do force victims into area hospitals. In many cases, victims sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and various other life-changing injuries that require extensive medical treatment.
Some of the most common factors contributing to auto accidents in our state include:
- Failing to yield the right of way to others
- Driving while impaired
- Driving while distracted
