Two women hurt after I-44 truck rear-end crash

EUREKA, MO – Two women were injured this weekend when their vehicle was rear-ended by a semi-truck on Interstate 44, according to a crash report published by the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The crash occurred Saturday at 6:13 p.m. in the eastbound lanes of the interstate, near Lewis Road, when a 2016 Freightliner Cascadia operated by 62-year-old Cristobal D. Rosas, of Bakersfield, California, collided with the back of a 2010 Ford Fusion.

The impact caused the Fusion to run off the side of the road and flip over, causing total damage to the vehicle.

Two occupants of the Fusion, 60-year-old driver Denise K. Bielicke, of Eureka, and 68-year-old passenger Delite S. Bielicke, of Ballwin, were taken to an area hospital with minor injuries. They were both wearing their seatbelts when the crash occurred.

Cristobal was not reported as injured.
