St Louis, MO (November 6, 2022) – One person was left injured following a multi-vehicle collision that occurred in the St. Louis area. At around 3:55 p.m., on the cool November 3, emergency crews were called to the scene of a crash on Interstate 270.
According to reports, a 2004 GMC Yukon was following too closely to a 2013 Toyota Corolla while traveling on the southbound side of Interstate 270. As a result, the two vehicles collided just north of Missouri State Route 21. The impact of the collision caused the Toyota to strike a 2021 Chrysler Pacifica. The Toyota then skidded into the left lane and rotated counterclockwise before colliding with a 2019 Freightliner Concordia.
The driver of the Toyota, 37-year-old Derek Keller of Bonne Terre, Missouri, suffered injuries in the accident. Keller was transported to Mercy Hospital South, where he was treated for his injuries.
The incident remains under investigation at this time.
We hope Derek Keller recovers quickly following this accident.
