St Charles, MO (January 3, 2022) – An auto accident reported in St Charles ended in injuries. At around 8:30 p.m., on January 1, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Interstate 70.
Reports from local authorities show that a 2014 Freightliner Cascadia was driving too fast for conditions on westbound Interstate 70. As the vehicle passed the area just west of Route A, it collided with a 2018 Audi SQ5.
Three people in the Audi were injured. EMS transported a 6-year-old male, an 8-year-old female, and 37-year-old Maple Zheng to SSM Health St Joseph Hospital in Lake St Louis for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Maple Zheng and the two children who were injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.
