St Charles, MO (July 14, 2022) – One woman was hospitalized with injuries following a motor vehicle accident in St. Charles. At around 6 p.m., on July 12, the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident that took place on Interstate 70.
Reports provided by authorities show that in 2022 Freightliner Cascadia crashed into a 2015 Hyundai Sonata on the eastbound side of Interstate 70 at the intersection of Missouri State Route 79. The impact of the crash caused the Hyundai to spin out and leave the right side of the roadway. The Hyundai then overturned and came to rest on its top.
The driver in the Hyundai sustained injuries as a result of the accident. The victim, 39-year-old Sallimatu Mulbah, was transported by St. Charles County ambulance to SSM Health St. Joseph Hospital in Lake St. Louis for emergency medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Sallimatu Mulbah at this time. We hope for her full recovery.

When victims are injured in motor vehicle accidents, they may be entitled to compensation that they can use to cover the damages resulting from accidents. In order to secure the maximum amount of financial compensation available for a personal injury lawsuit, a victim must be able to demonstrate that the elements of negligence existed at the time of the crash. This involves proving that:
- the defendant owed you a duty of care
- the defendant breached the duty of care
- the breach caused the accident
- the accident resulted in your injuries and damages
