ST. PETERS, MO – A 42-year-old woman was injured in a five-vehicle crash on eastbound I-70 west of Highway 79 on Friday evening.
Jovan Lindo, 24, was speeding in his 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage when he lost control and came to a stop in the highway, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol. As the Mirage moved to the right shoulder a 2001 Ford Taurus, driven by 19-year-old Isabella Schneider, hit it’s passenger side. The impact pushed the Mirage back onto the highway where it was struck by a 2015 Jeep Patriot driven by 30-year-old Kyle White. That impact caused the Jeep to strike a median wall as well as a 2000 Ford Mustang driven by Ericka Batsell, 42. At some point the Mirage was also struck by a 2000 Nissan Altima.
All vehicles were totaled in the crash.
Batsell was the only one who sustained injuries in the crash. She was transported to SSM Health St. Joseph Hospital Lake St. Louis for minor injuries.
