WRIGHT CITY, MO – Two semis and a 2016 Ford Fusion were involved in a crash on westbound I-70 at mile marker 195.4 just after noon on Monday.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the crash occurred as a westbound Peterbilt semi stopped for a prior incident on the roadway. The Fusion, which was traveling behind the Peterbilt, braked hard and swerved to avoid hitting the semi, only to enter its path. The Peterbilt struck the Fusion and then rear-ended a Freightliner semi. The Fusion came to a rest on the righthand shoulder.
Malondra Lewis, the Fusion’s 25-year-old driver, sustained minor injuries in the crash and was transported to SSM Health Lake St. Louis. Neither semi driver was injured in the crash.
