West Alton, MO (October 20, 2022) – An 82-year-old man from Staunton, Illinois, has died as a result of a crash that took place in St. Charles County. On October 18, at around 1:25 p.m., emergency officials were notified that a traffic incident occurred on US Highway 67.

According to local law enforcement, a 2020 Hino Conventional truck was traveling northbound on US Highway 67. For unknown reasons, the vehicle failed to stop at a red light near Richard Drive.

The Pontiac went on the left side of the roadway. The Hino truck and the Ford both went off the right side of the roadway. All three vehicles were totaled in the crash.

Three other victims, 25-year-old Shawn Millfelt, 25-year-old Phoenix Heern, and 26-year-old Jordan Bryant were all transported by Christian Hospital EMS to SSM Health Depaul Hospital, where they were treated for minor injuries.

The crash remains under investigation by the Missouri State Highway Patrol at this time.
