St Louis, MO (June 2, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in the St. Louis area left one woman injured. Just after 2 p.m., on May 30, emergency crews were dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Interstate 270.
Reports provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2013 Ford F1 50, a 2019 Chevrolet Blazer, and a 2012 Chevrolet Traverse were all traveling eastbound on Interstate 270. For unknown reasons, the Ford crashed into the rear end of the Chevrolet Blazer. The Ford then became involved in a crash with the Chevrolet Traverse. All the vehicles sustained moderate damage and had to be towed from the scene.
The driver of the Blazer, 36-year-old Ashley Holt, sustained injuries as a result of the accident. She was transported by Christian Hospital EMS to Christian Hospital Northeast for emergency medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Ashley Holt at this time. We hope for her full recovery.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Every year, tens of thousands of people in the state of Missouri are negatively affected by motor vehicle accidents. Quite often, these crashes are caused by drivers who engage in reckless and negligent actions while operating their vehicles. We see a significant number of crashes take place due to drivers who are speeding, impaired, or distracted while operating their vehicles.
When people do not maintain control over their vehicles, they place the lives of others sharing the road at risk. Unfortunately, many people involved in accidents are left with severe injuries that require medical care.
When people suffer from severe injuries, like spinal cord injuries or traumatic brain injuries, they often require extensive medical care. In some cases, medical treatment alone can cost more than a hundred thousand dollars. Dealing with the cost of medical care while being unable to work can be incredibly challenging.
When people are injured in accidents due to the negligence of others, they may have legal options available to help them secure the financial compensation that they can use to cover the cost of medical treatment and other damages they face.
