What to do if you’ve been in a car accident
Three lanes of eastbound Interstate 44 were closed on Sunday afternoon as crews attended to a fatal multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 55 toward St. Louis.
Just after 2:30 p.m., the accident occurred in the eastbound lanes of the highway near the 7th Street exit in St. Louis, KSDK reported.
A 47-year-old tractor-trailer driver told police that traffic had started to slow, coming to a stop due to a construction zone. Though the driver said he had turned on his hazard lights to warn other drivers of the slow down, a Volkswagen CC still crashed into the back.
KMOV reported that two men inside the car were killed.
