ST. PETERS, MO – A 24-year-old female driver sustained moderate injuries after her car went airborne and overturned on Sunday morning.
According to Missouri State Highway Patrol, the one-vehicle crash occurred when a 2000 Subaru Outback blew out a tire on eastbound I-70 west of Missouri 79. This caused the front of the vehicle to strike the roadway, which in turn caused the Outback to travel off the right side of the highway, go airborne, and finally overturn on Veterans Memorial Parkway.
Maria Diaz Argueta, the driver of the Outback, sustained moderate injuries and was transported to St. Joseph Hospital St. Charles. Her vehicle was totaled.
