Posted on Monday, October 26th, 2020
ST. LOUIS, MO – A wrong-way driver caused a four-vehicle crash on eastbound I-70 at South 5th Street on Sunday night.
Missouri State Highway Patrol report that the causing driver, identified as 30-year-old William Edwards, was transported to SSM Health DePaul Hospital for minor injuries.
The incident occurred as Edwards was driving a 1994 Dodge Ram 2500 westbound in the eastbound lanes. A 2000 GMC Sonoma attempted to avoid the Dodge, but the front of their vehicle struck the truck anyways. Immediately after this collision, a 2012 Volkswagen Passat slammed into the left side of the Dodge and rear end of the Sonoma. Then, the Dodge crashed through the concrete median and across all lanes of I-70 before hitting numerous construction signs on the south side of the highway.
It is unclear why the driver was traveling on the wrong side of I-70.
