St Louis, MO (April 12, 2022) – One man was left with moderate injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident in St Louis on Sunday evening, April 10. At around 10:45 p.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of an auto accident on Interstate 270.
Reports from MSHP Trooper C A Gates show that a 2020 Dodge Challenger and a Hyundai Elantra were involved in an accident on the eastbound side of Interstate 270 just east of West Florissant Road.
A passenger in the Dodge, identified as 36-year-old Kelvin Jackson, sustained injuries in the accident. He was transported to Christian Northeast Hospital for emergency medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Kelvin Jackson at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
