St Louis, MO (January 10, 2022) – Several people were transported to area hospitals with injuries following a motor vehicle accident in St Louis County. At around 11:10 a.m., on January 9, emergency crews were notified that their assistance was needed on-site at a crash on Missouri State Route 30.
Reports from Missouri State Highway Patrol show that the driver of a 2015 GMC Terrain failed to yield the right of way to a 2009 Chevrolet Impala while traveling eastbound on Missouri State Route 30 near Interstate 270. As a result, the two vehicles collided.
Three people involved in the crash were injured. EMS transported 48-year-old Stacy Covey, 37-year-old Marissa Lawson, and an 11-year-old female to Mercy Hospital South for care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Stacy Covey, Marissa Lawson, and the child who was injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Every day, motor vehicle accidents impact the lives of innocent people across our state. In countless instances, victims require emergency medical attention due to their injuries. Although most motorists are careful and are considerate of other motorists sharing the road, we see many accidents take place due to driver error.
