ST. LOUIS, MO – A man has been charged for the February 14 crash that killed four people on I-64, reports KMOV4.
The crash took place on February 14th, when Elijah Henderson, 29, crossed the median of I-64 and hit a minivan with his Ford F-250.
All occupants of the minivan were killed in the crash. They were later identified as Carrie and Kacey McCaw, 44 and 12, and Lesley and Rhyan Prather, 40 and 12. They were heading to a volleyball tournament at the time of the crash.
Henderson was found to have been under the influence of marijuana at the time of the crash, leading to four charges of driving while intoxicated. Henderson allegedly said the crash occurred when he was reaching over to the passenger side door to roll up the window, causing him to swerve into oncoming traffic.
Henderson has faced charges before, including a DWI charge in 2012 and a 2016 charge for possession of a controlled substance.
