Posted on Sunday, January 24th, 2021
FENTON, MO – Two people were injured in an accident in Fenton yesterday afternoon that involved a total of eight vehicles, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.
The crash occurred on northbound Highway 141, south of Gravois Road, at 1:07 p.m., as the driver of a 2017 Honda Civic, 63-year-old St. Louis man Thomas A. Parker, was sitting in the left turning lane at the intersection.
The Civic was rear-ended by a 2003 Lexus RX300 operated by 44-year-old Fenton woman Nicolle P. Johnson. The impact caused the Civic to veer into the lane to the right and strike a 2017 Nissan Sentra driven by 44-year-old House Springs woman Terra L. Rogers-Miller.
The Lexus then collided with a 2016 Rosenbauer Viper fire truck, driven by 38-year-old Andrew W. Erickson, of Fenton, a 2019 Honda Odyssey driven by 31-year-old High Ridge man Kyle D. Warren, and a 2012 Honda Civic, operated by 65-year-old Fenton man Timothy J. Braun.
The 2012 Civic was also struck by debris falling from the Odyssey.
Johnson continued on, and her vehicle collided with a 2003 Nissan Xterra SUV, operated by 28-year-old St. Louis man Devant X. Craig, and finally, with a 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan, driven by 46-year-old Jennifer L. Granda, of St. Louis.
Johnson, who was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, was taken to Mercy South for the treatment of serious wounds.
An occupant of the Odyssey, 34-year-old High Ridge woman Emily G. Warren, was taken to the hospital in St. Louis for the treatment of moderate injuries.
Warren and seven of the drivers were listed as wearing a seatbelt when the crash occurred.
