Head-On Crash Results in Critical Injuries in St. Louis

Head-on crashes are some of the most serious types of car accidents that occur in the St. Louis area. According to an article on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website, a recent head-on crash resulted in injuries to three people. Fortunately, no one was killed as a result of the collision.

The wreck occurred at about four o’clock in the afternoon on River Des Peres Boulevard. The man who caused the accident was thirty-two years old, and he was driving a Toyota Camry. Police officers reported that he was traveling at a very high rate of speed when his vehicle crossed over the center line, into oncoming traffic.

A Ford Focus was traveling in the opposite direction, and the two vehicles crashed. The driver of the Ford was a seventeen-year-old girl, and she had an eighteen-year-old male passenger with her. At the time of the article, the authorities were still attempting to determine what exactly caused the accident to occur. It could have happened because of any number of different reasons. The driver may have been distracted while he was driving, he may have been intoxicated, or he may have fallen asleep.
