Categorized as Auto Accidents

Wentzville Township, MO (October 26, 2021) – Two people were left with moderate to serious injuries following a traffic-related incident in St. Charles County on Monday morning, October 25.

Just after 6:25 a.m., authorities were notified that a crash on US Highway 61 required assistance. Reports show that a 2021 Subaru Forester, a 2014 Nissan Altima, a 2008 Dodge Nitro, and a 2013 Chevrolet Silverado were all traveling south on US Highway 61.

As the Nissan and Dodge Nitro began to slow down for traffic congestion near McHugh Road, the Subaru crashed into the rear of the Nissan. The impact of the crash caused the Nissan to slide off the roadway and strike a tree.

The Chevrolet then struck the Subaru. The impact of the crash caused the Subaru to crash into the rear of the Dodge and overturn. The Subaru then went off the left side of the roadway.

The driver of the Nissan, 22-year-old Ashlyn Langan, and her passenger, 22-year-old Erik Sherman, were both injured. Both victims were transported to St. Louis Hospital for emergency medical care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Ashlyn Langan and Erik Sherman at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
