Wrong-Way Driver Causes Accident Just Outside St. Louis

Accidents can happen at any time, as they frequently do in St. Louis. However, most of the time when crashes occur, they don’t involve people driving the wrong way on major roadways. According to a recent Fox2Now article, this type of wreck happened on I-64 near Spirit of St. Louis Blvd.

The accident took place in Chesterfield, and the driver who caused it was a man in his thirties, who was driving an SUV. He struck a passenger car head-on, and the driver of the car was ejected from his vehicle.

Fortunately, both drivers survived the crash, and they were taken to a local hospital to get treated for serious injuries.

The article does not give any information regarding what caused the accident, so it’s safe to assume that an investigation into the cause is still ongoing. Even so, there are a number of factors that could have led to it, including:

  • Texting while driving
  • Alcohol use and intoxication
  • Drug use
  • Negligent driving
