Dangerous Driving Results in Fatal Tractor Trailer Crash in St. Louis

Reckless driving on a major expressway is never a good idea, and it’s never surprising when it results in a serious car accident. A recent crash on I-70 in North St. Louis could have been avoided by following the rules of the road. Unfortunately, according to an article on the KMOV website, it ended with one man dead, and his passenger seriously injured.

The article states that the driver of the vehicle was a forty-six-year-old man who was weaving in and out of traffic as he traveled along the stretch of highway near the North St. Louis exit. His Kia struck the rear of a tractor trailer, and he died at the scene of the crash. His passenger was an eighteen-year-old man, and he had to be extracted from the vehicle. He was taken to a nearby hospital for his injuries and was listed in critical condition at the time the article was released.
