St Louis, MO (July 6, 2022) – Two Florissant, Missouri men have been left injured as a result of a motor vehicle accident in St. Louis. At around 2:50 p.m., on July 5, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the site of a crash that occurred on Interstate 170.
Reports provided by authorities indicate that a 2009 Honda Accord was traveling southbound on Interstate 170. At the same time, a 2012 Chevrolet Colorado in a 2019 Chevrolet express were traveling northbound on the same roadway. For unknown reasons, the driver of the Honda lost control of their vehicle and traveled onto the left side of the roadway near Scudder Avenue. As a result, the vehicle crashed into the Colorado. The Chevrolet express was then struck by debris. The Chevrolet Colorado men caught on fire as a result of the accident.
Two people involved in the accident suffered injuries. EMS transported 22-year-old Ivan Gutierrez to DePaul Hospital for emergency medical treatment. The second victim, 25-year-old Dakota Sayles, was transported to Barnes Jewish Hospital for medical treatment.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Ivan Gutierrez and Dakota Sayles at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
