ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – Three people were rescued after the vehicle they were traveling in went off an overpass and crashed into a ravine Wednesday morning in north St. Louis County.
The crash happened at Highway 367 and Lindbergh at about 10:00 a.m. The highway was closed just before Lindbergh.
A police spokesperson said the car was traveling southbound on Highway 367 just north of Jamestown Road when it somehow left the roadway.
First responders from Spanish Lake and Blackjack raced to the scene and had difficulty extracting the victims. The occupants had to be placed in basket stretchers and then carefully moved up the side of the ravine.
Two of the people in the vehicle have life-threatening injuries. All three occupants were taken to the hospital.
FOX 2 later learned the vehicle was registered to a Florissant family.
While first responders were at the scene, a car sideswiped a county vehicle that had stopped to help with traffic. Fortunately, no one was injured in that second accident.
