St Louis, MO (July 18, 2022) – A man and woman from Redbud, Illinois, were both transported to Mercy Hospital in St. Louis with serious injuries following a multivehicle collision that occurred in the St. Louis area. At 11:45 a.m., on July 17, the Missouri State Highway Patrol and firefighters were requested to assist at the scene of a motor vehicle crash that occurred on the eastbound side of Interstate 44.
Preliminary reports indicate that a 2014 Chevrolet Spark crashed into the rear tow unit of a 2011 GMC Sierra on the eastbound side of Interstate 44 just east of Antire Road.
The impact of the crash caused both vehicles to slide. The GMC van jackknifed and went off the roadway, and overturned. As the vehicle overturned, the left tire came off of the vehicle and struck a 2018 Lincoln Continental and a 2004 Toyota tundra.
Two people inside the GMC suffered severe injuries. EMS with Eureka Fire Protection District transported 70-year-old Joanne Cowell and 75-year-old James Cowell to Mercy Hospital St. Louis for emergency medical care.
The crash is under investigation at this time by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
Our thoughts are with Joanne Cowell and James Cowell at this time.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Motor vehicle crashes take place all the time in our state that leave people with serious injuries. The majority of accidents are caused by drivers who engage in reckless actions. It is downright shameful that innocent people have to pay the consequences of drivers who are reckless and fail to maintain proper control of their vehicles to ensure safety.
When innocent people suffer injuries as a result of collisions, they are often afforded the ability to pursue a personal injury case against the at-fault party.
