ST. LOUIS, MO – A 22-year-old man was hurt Tuesday morning in a rollover car accident on Interstate 70 in northwest St. Louis, according to a crash report published by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
The collision occurred in the eastbound lanes of the interstate, near Airflight, when the driver of a 2019 Nissan Sentra, 25-year-old Summer J. Wright, from Montgomery, Alabama, made an unsafe lane change.
The lane change brought the Sentra into the path of a 2005 GMC Savannah operated by St. Louis man Pedro P. Aguilara, 22, and the two vehicles collided.
The Savannah then collided with the median and flipped over before coming to rest in the roadway.
Aguilara was taken to Depaul hospital with minor injuries. He and Wright were both wearing their seatbelts when the accident occurred.
The Savannah was totaled in the accident.
