ST. LOUIS, MO – One person was hospitalized and another treated for minor injuries at the scene following a collision south of downtown St. Louis Friday evening.
The four-car collision occurred along I-255 just west of Missouri State Highway 231 at about 4:27 p.m., according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol crash report.
Officials say one driver failed to notice the stopped traffic in front of them and rear-ended another vehicle causing a chain-reaction causing one vehicle to strike the guardrail and another to travel off the side of the road.
One male in his 30’s was transported to a local hospital to be treated for minor injuries while another individual was treated and released from the scene.
