ST. LOUIS, MO — Three young men were hospitalized Sunday evening after their car was struck by another vehicle on Interstate 170 southbound in northwest St. Louis, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol.
Trooper K. G. Barba responded to the crash along I-170 southbound at Airport Road near Berkeley at around 6:25 p.m.
A 2008 Toyota Camry and a 2017 Ford Fusion were both traveling southbound on I-170 when the Fusion struck the side of the Camry. Both drivers lost control of their vehicles and began to slide, running off the left side of the roadway and striking a concrete median. The Camry then became airborne off the bridge to Airport Road, landing on its roof. The Fusion came to a stop between the concrete median and left shoulder.
Following the crash, the Camry’s 20-year-old male driver sustained serious injuries and was transported to Barnes-Jewish Hospital. Two of his passengers, an 18-year-old man and a 19-year-old woman, sustained minor to moderate injuries and were also taken to the same hospital.
The causing Fusion driver was not reported injured.
