Car Accident In St. Louis County Kills Backseat Passenger

Unfortunately, many car accidents in St. Louis occur because the driver of the vehicle was driving recklessly. According to a recent article on, that’s exactly what took place in August near Bridlewood Valley.

The twenty-year-old driver was later charged with a misdemeanor after the accident occurred. There were three people in the vehicle, and the driver had tried to jump a hill. During the jump, he lost control of his Chevy Nova and crashed. The driver and the front seat passenger had what authorities described as non-life-threatening injuries. However, the passenger sitting in the back seat was an eighteen-year-old man, and he died in the crash.
