St Louis, MO (May 28, 2022) – Several people were transported to an area hospital with injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident that took place on Thursday morning in the St. Louis area. At around 1:50 a.m., on May 26, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a crash on Interstate 70.

Reports from authorities show that a 2002 Toyota Corolla and a 2001 Ford escape were both traveling westbound on Interstate 70. As the forward attempted to enter the left shoulder just east of Interstate 170, it was struck by the Toyota. Both vehicles were totaled as a result of the accident and had to be towed from the scene.

The drivers of both vehicles and two passengers inside the Ford were injured. Emergency medical services transported 30-year-old Ranisha Johnson-Like, 33-year-old Chelsea Sanchez, 57-year-old Marilyn Griffin, and 61-year-old Margaret Young to SSM Health Depaul Hospital for the treatment of injuries.

At this time, the circumstances surrounding the crash are under investigation by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

Our thoughts are with Ranisha Johnson-Like, Chelsea Sanchez, Marilyn Griffin, and Margaret Young at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
