FLORISSANT, MO – Four people, including a 1-year-old and 2-year-old child, were injured in a multi-vehicle wreck on I-270 this afternoon, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
The accident happened in Florissant, near the 29.2 mile marker of eastbound I-270, at 12:40 p.m., after the driver of a 2006 Mercury Milan, 23-year-old St. Louis woman Jasmine N. Jackson, slowed down due to traffic congestion.
