St Louis, IL - 3 Injured In Semi-Truck Pileup At I-70 & I-55

St Louis, IL (December 2, 2019) - A multi-vehicle collision involving two semi-trucks and an SUV took place early Monday morning, December 2nd. The accident took place in St. Louis, Illinois near the intesrection of I-70 and I-55 at around 5:12 a.m. The roadway was reportedly icy at the time of the crash.

According to initial reports, a semi-truck jackknifed on the I-70 ramp to I-55, blocking the ramp. A second semi-truck struck the vehicle's trailer, causing it to split in half and spill debris across the roadway. The second semi hit an SUV, and another vehicle slid and hit a guardrail.

The driver of the first semi-truck sustained critical injuries and had to be airlifted to a medical facility. The driver of the second semi was also injured. The driver of the SUV was not injured in the crash. 

An investigation into the crash is being conducted by local law enforcement.

Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for a full recovery.

Semi-Truck Accidents in Illinois

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for PFMstock6-23.jpgCrashes involving semi-trucks often result in serious injuries. The sheer size and weight of these vehicles can make these collisions catastrophic for those involved. An estimated 5,000 people each year are killed in semi-truck collisions.

The braking capability of semi-trucks can be a factor in serious crashes. These vehicles require massive amounts of room to come to a stop. During inclement weather conditions, these vehicles can cause serious injuries to their drivers and others on the road.
