Categorized as Auto Accidents, Personal Injury

St Louis, MO (May 12, 2022) – A motor vehicle accident reported in the St Louis area on Saturday evening left one man injured. At around 4:45 p.m., on May 7, calls for assistance came in surrounding an auto wreck on Interstate 270.

Reports from the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2015 Dodge Ram 1500 pickup truck was following too closely to a 2013 Ford Explorer. As a result, the Dodge rear-ended the Ford just west of West Florissant Avenue.

The driver of the Ford, 55-year-old Nelson Williams, sustained injuries in the accident. He was transported by Christian Hospital EMS to SSM Health DePaul Hospital for emergency medical care.

At this time, MSHP is investigating the crash.

Our thoughts are with Nelson Williams at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
