St Louis, MO (January 10, 2022) – A crash in the St Louis area left one woman injured. At around 11:25 p.m., on January 7, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Interstate 70.
Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2014 Ford Fusion, a 2019 Ford Fusion, and a 1999 Buick Century were all traveling east on Interstate 70 when the 2009 Ford Fusion struck the 2014 Ford Fusion near mile marker 240. The 2014 Ford Fusion driver then lost control, causing their vehicle to strike the Buick. All three vehicles then went off the right side of the roadway.
The driver of the Buick, 43-year-old Kimaada Ellison, sustained moderate injuries in the accident. She was transported to SSM Health Depaul Hospital for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Kimaada Ellison at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
