St Louis, MO (July 30, 2022) – One woman was transported to a local hospital for the treatment of moderate injuries as a result of a vehicle collision that occurred in the St. Louis area on Thursday afternoon. At around 2:08 p.m., on July 28, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was notified that a crash took place on Interstate 44.

Preliminary investigations show that the driver of a 2013 Freightliner Cascadia failed to yield the right-of-way to a 2002 Mercury cougar as the truck traveled on the eastbound side of Interstate 44. As the semi-truck made a lane change just east of Lewis Road, it struck the Mercury. The impact of the crash caused the Mercury to run off the side of the roadway and overturn.

The Mercury driver, 19-year-old Savannah Stewart, suffered moderate injuries in the crash. Stewart, who is from Imperial, Missouri, was transported by Eureka Fire Protection District to SSM Health St. Clair hospital for emergency medical treatment.

Missouri State Highway Patrol is conducting an investigation into the crash at this time.

Our thoughts are with Savannah Stewart as we hope for her full recovery.
