An 18 year Afton man was killed in a Chesterfield three-car accident on Wednesday, February 28. The young man’s car collided head-on with a 2012 Infiniti SUV around 11 a.m on Olive Boulevard near Creve Coeur Mill Road. According to Chesterfield police, the Infiniti driven by a 36 year old man of Oakland, California crossed the center line and sturck a white 2007 Dodge pick-up and the 18 year old’s Honda Accord. The driver of the Infiniti and his passenger, a 33 year old Oakland man were hospitalized with injuries. The driver of the pick-up, a 46 year old man was injured but released from the hospital.
At the time of the article printing, it was not apparent if the driver of the Infiniti would face charges and it is still unclear what caused the Infiniti to cross into oncoming traffic. The young fatality victim was killed within a mile of his home. It will be interesting to see the results of investigations into the car crash to determine why the Infiniti veered into the wrong lane, causing two to be injured and the tragic death of the young man. The victim was a graduate of St. John Vianney St. Louis Post Dispatch.
