St Charles, MO (July 15, 2022) – A crash occurred in the St. Charles area that left one man injured. Just before 12:25 p.m., on July 14, emergency crews received notification that a crash occurred on Missouri State Route 370 that required emergency care.
Reports provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2021 Hyundai Elantra was parked on the shoulder of westbound Missouri State Route 370 just west of Missouri State Route 94. For unknown reasons, the driver of a 2006 Sterling dump truck lost control of their vehicle and struck the side of the Hyundai. The impact of the crash caused the dump truck to travel off the roadway into the North service Road where it collided with a 2013 Volvo VNL tractor.
The driver of the Hyundai sustained injuries in the accident. The victim, 20-year-old Lartayvious Johnston, was transported to SSM Health DePaul Hospital by St. Charles County Ambulance District for emergency medical treatment.
The crash remains under investigation at this time.
Our thoughts are with Lartayvious Johnston at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
