One intersection between Millstadt and Columbia saw two crashes within 10 minutes on Saturday, and the Illinois State Police say the intersection is a familiar one to them.
The first crash at Illinois 158 and Douglas Road was called in at 12:01 p.m., says ISP spokesman Trooper Calvin Dye. The second was called in at 12:10 p.m. Both crashes involved two vehicles at the T-intersection, and both crashes had injuries.
Four people were being treated for injuries Saturday afternoon; one of them was flown to a St. Louis hospital.
“It’s probably one of the main locations we get called to crashes,” Dye said.
