Crews are on the scene of a fatal accident on Mississippi Avenue in Sauget.
Sauget Chief James Jones called the crash “horrific.”
Reportedly, a 70-year-old woman driving a white Ford Edge southbound on Mississippi crossed the center lane for an unknown reason and hit a silver Nissan head on. Jones said the damage is “extensive” in the car.
The coroner is present and officials are waiting on the ID of the male victim. A detective is heading to the hospital to talk to the other person involved. That person’s injuries are not considered live threatening.
