St. Louis Accident Injures Six People

Traffic stops should be relatively routine. You’re pulled over by the police officer, you talk with him or her, you either get a warning or a ticket, and you’re on your way. Unfortunately, a recent traffic stop in St. Louis resulted in a pretty serious accident that harmed six people, according to an article on the Fox2News website.

The accident occurred just before 6 PM one evening. The traffic stop was taking place at the corner of Minerva and Belt Avenues. The vehicle that was stopped attempted to speed away from the scene, and it struck another car and an individual riding a bicycle. Two adults and four children were injured as a result of the crash and had to be taken to the hospital for their injuries. The article states that one of the adults was listed in critical condition, while the others involved were in stable condition.
