Multitude of Deadly St. Louis Crashes Claim Many Lives

It’s rare for so many serious car accidents to occur in one night, but that is precisely what happened recently in St. Louis. According to the article on the St. Louis Post-Dispatch website, at least five people died in one night as a result of several different accidents all across the St. Louis area.

The accidents were widespread, so they were completely unrelated; although they all occurred within four and a half hours of each other. One of the crashes happened when a vehicle hit an overpass. The car burst into flames and two people died. Another incident was the result of a car swerving to avoid hitting an oncoming car. Two pedestrians were walking nearby, and they were both killed when they were hit. In a third accident, a tractor trailer was attempting to get off the road after blowing a tire. His truck was rear-ended, and the driver of that car died as a result of the crash.

All of these accidents were tragic, however, they are also a clear indicator of how important it is to remain aware and careful, whether you’re driving or you’re walking. As your St. Louis car accident attorney, we want to urge you to be cautious, no matter where or how you’re traveling this winter. If you’re injured in an accident, please contact an attorney who can advise you on your case. Above all, please be safe.
