At least one person was killed and at least 11 others were injured when icy road conditions generated multiple collisions on a Missouri highway Sunday.
The accident on the state’s Interstate 44 in Rolla, roughly 100 miles southwest of St. Louis, resulted around 2 p.m ., the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported, quoting the Missouri Highway Patrol.
Two beings with serious injuries were airlifted from the panorama near the 186 mile marker, and at the least 10 people were injured when cars began slipping into each other on the highway.
The area, according to KMOV, is a “high crash zone” due to a veer on the stretch of street, but highway patrol said the accident was due to weather conditions.
According to MSHP Troop I, two other gate-crashes took place on I-4 4 Sunday at the 138 and 144 mile markers.
One person was confirmed dead and others were injured in a 12 -car crash near the highway’s 138 mile marker, and serious injuries was reported near the 144 from a automobile crash.
MSHP Troop F tweeted that as of 6 p. m. neighbourhood age, the human rights unit had responded to “1 31 accidents& slide-offs.”
