Multi-Vehicle Crash May have been Caused by a Drunk Driver

A report of a man driving a pick-up truck erratically was quickly followed by a multi-vehicle accident on Highway 370 on August 1, 2012. The pick-up was involved in a minor accident but before police could get to the scene three vehicles behind the truck were involved in a second accident.

The second accident resulted in a fatal injury to the driver of one vehicle. St. Louis resident Gregory Carter was working when the UPS truck he was driving struck the vehicle in front of him.  Carter died at the scene.

Witnesses said the driver stopped in the middle lane to look at minor damage to his pick-up and that led to the other vehicles having to stop short. The driver of the pick-up has been arrested under suspicion of drunk driving.

The reckless actions of this individual seem to have caused injury and heartache for all involved.
