St Charles, MO (August 9, 2022) – A vehicle collision occurred in the St. Charles area that left two people with moderate injuries. Just before 7:30 a.m., on August 7, the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to a crash that took place on Interstate 70.
Preliminary investigations surrounding the accident show that a 2003 Lexus GX470 was driving on Interstate 70 when it made a lane change from lane two to lane four just west of Mid Rivers Mall Drive. After switching lanes, the Lexus collided with a 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage. The impact of the crash caused the Lexus to travel off the right side of the roadway and overturn.
Two people involved in the crash were left with moderate injuries. The victims, 42-year-old Tiana Clark and an 8-year-old female, were both transported to Barnes Jewish Hospital by St. Charles County ambulance District where they received emergency medical attention.
The crash remains under investigation at this time by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
We hope Tiana Clark and the young child injured in this accident recover quickly and fully.
