ST. CLAIR, Mo. (AP/ St. Louis Post-Dispatch) – Authorities say a chain reaction crash on Interstate 44 in eastern Missouri has left one man dead.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the crash happened Wednesday morning near St. Clair.
The Missouri Highway Patrol says the crash occurred around 10 a.m. when a sport utility vehicle driven by 67-year-old Kevin Broshous, of Sullivan, lost control, hit a guardrail and veered back into the interstate’s westbound lanes. Broshous’ SUV was then hit by a semitrailer, which jackknifed across the westbound lanes, causing two more semitrailers to crash into it. Broshous died at the scene.
The patrol says no one else was hurt.
