St Louis, MO (February 22, 2022) – One person was left injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident in the St Louis area. At around 2:50 p.m., on February 21, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to a crash site on Interstate 270.
Reports indicate that a 2022 Dodge Ram 2500 pickup truck, a 2005 Chevrolet 5500, and a 2015 Jeep Wrangler were all traveling northbound on Interstate 270. As the vehicles approached congestion near James S McDonnell Boulevard, they all began to slow down to avoid a collision. However, the front of the Dodge struck the rear of the Jeep. The impact caused the Jeep to strike a concrete median barrier and crash into the Chevrolet.
The driver of the Jeep, 55-year-old Katherine Bargiel, sustained injuries in the accident and was transported to SSM Health DePaul Hospital for emergency medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Katherine Bargiel at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
