St Louis, MO (October 12, 2023) – The police in St. Louis confirmed that one man lost his life as a result of a truck crash that took place near the Enterprise Center on Wednesday morning, October 11.
At around 3:30 a.m., the St. Louis Police Department was called to the scene of a crash on South 14th Street.
According to reports, a box truck and a Chevrolet Monte Carlo collided on South 14th Street at the intersection of Clark Avenue. The impact of the crash caused the truck to spin around. The sedan crashed into a fire hydrant near the intersection.
The driver of the Monte Carlo, identified as a 34-year-old man, suffered fatal injuries and was pronounced dead on site.
The truck driver was transported to a hospital for medical care.
The police department is currently investigating.
We hope the injured driver recovers quickly.
Our sympathies go out to the family of the victim who died in this crash.
Each year, fatal truck accidents are the cause of thousands of deaths across the United States. In many instances, innocent people die due to the reckless and negligent actions of motorists sharing the road. There are many instances where the negligent actions of truck drivers, such as speeding or driving while impaired, ultimately lead to these accidents taking place. However, there are also instances where cargo is improperly loaded trucking. Companies fail to inspect their vehicles, and even part manufacturers engage in negligent actions that lead to failures of mechanical parts.
No matter what caused the accident that claimed your loved one’s life, it is important that you are able to get justice. Seeking guidance from a commercial vehicle accident lawyer early on can help to ensure you have the strongest evidence possible against the defendant.
