WENTZVILLE, MO – Three adults and three children, aged 5 to 8, were hurt Friday in a T-bone accident in St. Charles County, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
The crash occurred just before 2 p.m. at the intersection of Mexico Road and Highway A as a 2015 Chrysler 300 was turning left onto Enterprise Drive and into the path of a 2016 Nissan Altima.
