ST. LOUIS – One person is dead and four others are hurt after a violent two-car crash overnight in south St. Louis.
Police told FOX 2 that those hurt in the crash ranged in age from 17 to 48 years old. Accident reconstruction crews were called in to investigate, given the severity of the crash.
This all unfolded just after 11:30 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Keokuk and South Broadway. Both cars involved were passenger vehicles – one a Pontiac with four people inside it and the other a Volvo with one person in it.
Police revealed that the person killed was a female passenger in the Pontiac. The three others in that car – the 48-year-old driver, a 30-year-old passenger, and a 27-year-old passenger – were all taken to nearby hospitals.
The 30 and 48-year-olds are in critical but stable condition. We’re told the 27-year-old is stable. The driver of the Volvo was 17 years old and was the only person in that car. Police added that he was taken to the hospital and is stable.
Authorities had the intersection at Keokuk and South Broadway shut down for some time overnight while accident reconstruction crews tried to piece together what exactly took place. The intersection has now reopened.
At this point, police have not released details on what caused the wreck. FOX 2 will update this story with more information as it becomes available.
