St. Louis Woman Killed While Assessing Vehicle Damage

Accidents happen in St. Louis all the time, but one recent accident on I-64 was even more tragic than most. Imagine that you’re traveling along the highway, and your vehicle strikes something in the road. You’re sure that there’s damage, and so you stop to check on the condition of your car. While you’re checking, you’re hit by another vehicle that is traveling on the roadway.

According to an article on the Fox2News website, that’s precisely what happened to one woman just past the Spirit of St. Louis Boulevard. The article states that she struck a tire that had been in the road, and she stopped her vehicle to look at the damage the tire might have caused.

Drivers are usually quite cautious when traveling along the highways in St. Louis because of the high number of accidents that have occurred. However, in this particular instance, the woman was killed by a driver passing to close to her car.

As your St. Louis personal injury attorneys, we can’t say for sure what happened that caused this tragic accident. The other driver could have been distracted, or it might have happened because of the way the woman was parked alongside the road. It’s an accident that certainly requires investigation.
