The driver of a vehicle traveling the wrong way down Interstate 55 was killed after crashing into an oncoming SUV.
According to St. Louis officials, the 74-year-old driver swerved into oncoming traffic where she drove for miles going the wrong way before she collided with an oncoming Jeep.
The impact caused the Jeep to flip and roll over as a result. The 25-year-old driver was transported to the hospital to be treated, but the 74-year-old woman was pronounced dead at the scene. All northbound lanes of the roadway were closed for some time in order for crews to clear the scene.
Car accidents can cause serious injury to all involved. Our condolences are with the friends of the victim.
