St Louis, MO (November 14, 2022) – A traffic accident reported in the St. Louis area on this Sunday evening left several people injured. Calls for help came in around 11:30 p.m. on November 13.
Preliminary reports provided by the Missouri State Highway Patrol show that a 2016 Toyota Corolla was traveling west on Interstate 70. At the same time, a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder was also traveling westbound on the roadway. Debris from the roadway flew up and struck the Toyota, causing the driver of the vehicle to swerve to the right.
The Toyota then struck the left side of the Nissan. The two vehicles traveled through all of the lanes of traffic and one off the right side of the roadway. The Toyota then continued down the hill and struck a tree.
EMS responded to the scene of the accident and rendered aid to 34-year-old Antwoin Jenkins, 36-year-old Frankeisha Bryant, and 39-year-old Jermaine Washington. Washington and Jenkins were then transported regularly to Barnes Jewish Hospital, where they underwent treatment for serious injuries.
Brian’s was then transported to SSM Health Depaul Hospital, where she underwent treatment for moderate injuries.
The cause of the wreck remains under investigation at this time.
We hope Frankeisha Bryant, Jermaine Washington, and Antwoin Jenkins recover quickly following this crash.
Car Accidents in Missouri
Auto wrecks across Missouri are the cause of tens of thousands of injuries each year. There are countless cases where innocent people are forced to deal with overwhelming pain and suffering. In most cases, people are hurt in crashes as a result of reckless and negligent parties.
Some of the most common causes of traffic wrecks in our state include:
- Distracted driving: This is one of the leading causes of car crashes in general, and is often a factor in crashes involving two vehicles. Distracted driving can include anything from texting or talking on the phone to eating or drinking, and takes the driver’s attention away from the road.
- Speeding: Excessive speed is another leading cause of car crashes, and is often a contributing factor in two-vehicle accidents. Speed increases the chances of losing control of your vehicle, and also makes it more difficult to stop in time to avoid an accident.
- Drunk driving: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs is extremely dangerous and is a major cause of car crashes involving two vehicles. Drunk drivers have impaired judgment and reaction times, making them more likely to cause an accident.
