Three people were involved in a Missouri three-vehicle accident on Westbound Highway 30 and High Ridge Blvd in Jefferson County, Missouri. The date and time of the accident was on June 17, 2012 at 10:09pm.
Laura M. Wheat of St. Louis, Missouri was driving eastbound on Highway 30 in a 2003 Hyundai Accent. At the same time, Stephanie R. Roth of Brentwood, Missouri was driving westbound in a 2011 Mazda 3. John F. Massara of Fenton, Missouri was also driving westbound on Highway 30 in a 2012 Chrysler Town and County vehicle. As Wheat approached the intersection between Highway 30 and High Ridge Blvd, authorities note that Wheat made an improper left turn and subsequently traveled in the path of Highway 30’s westbound traffic. Roth could not stop her vehicle in time and struck the rear of Wheat’s vehicle. Massara attempted to swerve out of the way of the accident, but his vehicle swerved off of the road and traveled into a ditch. Wheat and Roth’s vehicles sustained extensive damage while Massara’s vehicle only sustained moderate damage.
Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the accident and determined that Roth sustained minor injuries due to the accident. Roth was immediately transported to Mercy Hospital in Creve Coeur, Missouri by North Jefferson County Ambulance services.
