Ste Genevieve, MO (June 27, 2022) – A vehicle collision reported in the Ste Genevieve area left one man seriously injured. Just after 7 p.m., on June 25, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Goat Hill Trail.
Reports from MSHP show that a crash between two 2004 Polaris ATVs occurred on Goat Hill Trail just north of Saline Creek Road. The incident caused some disruptions in the area as emergency crews worked to clear the roadway.
EMS rendered aid to 25-year-old Chris Cabral on-site. He was then transported by Air Evac to St Louis University Hospital for emergency medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Chris Cabral at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
