3 children in critical condition following accident in Central West End

ST. LOUIS, MO – Three children and their father were taken to the hospital after a fiery car accident in the Central West End last night, according to KMOV.

The accident happened on I-64 near Kingshighway Boulevard at about 10:30 p.m., when an unidentified driver attempted to merge into an eastbound lane occupied by a Pontiac G6, forcing it into a guardrail.

The driver of the Pontiac and his children—a 9-year-old boy, a 7-year-old boy, and 4-year-old girl—were rescued from the vehicle not long before it was consumed in a blaze. The children reportedly suffered life-threatening injuries and were taken to an area hospital alongside their father.

There is no word on the identity of the second driver, and the accident remains under investigation at this time.
