St Louis, MO (November 7, 2022) – Emergency crews in St. Louis were called to the scene of a traffic incident that left two people injured. At around 4:30 a.m., on November 5, troopers with the Missouri State Highway Patrol were dispatched to a crash on Interstate 270.
According to reports provided by authorities, 56-year-old Marcus Adams was driving a 2020 Hyundai Elantra on the southbound side of Interstate 270 when his vehicle collided with a concrete barrier.
