Distracted driver loses control causing multi-vehicle accident east of Big Bend Road

ST. LOUIS, MO – A driver lost control of his SUV while driving on I-44 east of Big Bend Road Wednesday afternoon. The vehicle traveled across the roadway and hit two other vehicles, the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The accident began at around 3:30 p.m., when the driver of a 2005 Isuzu Ascender hit a trailer being towed by a 2008 Ford F350. The Isuzu’s driver lost control of the vehicle and began sliding across the highway, officials say.

An oncoming 1993 Honda Accord was unable to stop in time and collided head-on with the Isuzu.

The driver of the Honda received minor injuries in the accident. He was taken to SSM Health St. Clare Hospital to receive treatment.
