ST. CHARLES COUNTY, Mo. – One person was taken to a local hospital following a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 70 involving a stolen SUV.

The rollover crash occurred Monday afternoon in the westbound lanes of the interstate between Mid Rivers Mall Drive and MO 79. In all, four vehicles were involved in the crash.

Corporal Dallas Thompson, a spokesman with the Missouri State Highway Patrol, said one person tried to flee the scene but was caught. The second person remained at the scene of the crash.

According to Sgt. Tracy Panus, a spokeswoman for the St. Louis County Police Department, detectives observed a grey Jeep Cherokee near I-70 and Goodfellow which had been reported stolen in Wentzville in June 2022. The vehicle was also tied to several violent felonies in the region.

Police attempted a traffic stop but the Cherokee sped off and the pursuit began, Panus said.

One of the people in the stolen Cherokee suffered minor injuries. A person in one of the other vehicles also suffered minor injuries in the crash but was treated at the scene and released.
