ST. LOUIS, MO – A fiery, two-vehicle collision on I-70 claimed the life of a man and sent two women to the hospital early yesterday morning, according to KSDK.
The accident occurred on the ramp from westbound I-70 to Bircher Boulevard just after midnight, as the driver of a 2009 Chevrolet Impala was reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed.
The Impala collided with a 2015 Ford Explorer, and the impact caused the driver of the Impala to be ejected from the vehicle before it caught fire.
The man driving the Impala died at the scene.
The 46-year-old woman driving the Explorer and her 34-year-old passenger were taken to the hospital for the treatment of non-critical wounds.
The accident remains under investigation at this time.
