St Louis, MO (May 28, 2022) – One man was transported to an area hospital following a collision that took place in the St. Louis area on Thursday morning, May 26. At around 9:45 a.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of an auto accident on Interstate 70.
Reports provided by authorities indicate that a vehicle became disabled on the westbound side of Interstate 70 near mile marker 241. As vehicles began to slow down to avoid the collision, a subsequent accident between a 2005 Chevrolet Malibu and a 2005 Buick Terraza took place. The impact of the crash caused the Buick to strike a 2007 Suzuki XL7. The Suzuki then crashed into a 2019 Dodge Ram pickup truck.
One man was injured as a result of the accident. The victim, 63-year-old Wilmon Goines, was transported by Northeast Fire Protection District to SSM Health Depaul Hospital for emergency medical care.
At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
Our thoughts are with Wilmon Goines at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
