St Louis, MO (May 12, 2022) – The Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Tuesday evening in St. Louis that left one man injured. Just before 4:40 p.m., on May 10, calls for assistance came in surrounding a traffic collision that occurred on Interstate 270.

Reports from authorities show that a 2018 Dodge Ram Pro Master was traveling northbound on Interstate 270 with a 2001 Dodge Ram pickup truck. As the driver of the Ram pickup truck slowed to traffic congestion near Missouri State Route 340, the vehicle was struck by the Dodge Ram Pro Master.

The driver of the pickup truck, 22-year-old Logan Northrup, sustained injuries as a result of the accident. He was transported to Mercy Hospital St. Louis by Creve Coeur Fire Protection District.

At this time, the crash remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Logan Northrup at this time. We hope for his full recovery.
