Categorized as Auto Accidents, Personal Injury

St Louis, MO (May 29, 2022) – A multi-vehicle accident reported in the St. Louis area ended in injuries. At around 12:25 p.m., on May 26, the Missouri State Highway Patrol was dispatched to the scene of a motor vehicle accident on Interstate 70.

Reports provided by authorities show that a 2013 Kia Sorrento was traveling on the eastbound side of Interstate 70 when they decided to switch lanes just east of Route U. As the vehicle switched lanes, it collided with a concrete barrier. The impact of the crash caused the Kia to strike a 2014 Cadillac SRX. Somehow during the collision, at least one of the vehicles or degrees collided with a 2014 Ford Edge. All three vehicles sustained significant damage and had to be towed from the scene.

Three people involved in the accident were injured. Northeast Fire Protection District EMS rendered aid to 18-year-old Jurisha Womack, 19-year-old Brya Smith, and 18-year-old Michael Asperger at the scene. The three victims were then transported to SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital in St. Louis for care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Jurisha Womack, Brya Smith, and Michael Asperger at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
