One man is dead and a woman was sent to the hospital with life-threatening injuries after a single car crash that closed Highway 109 Monday afternoon.

A press release from the St. Louis County Police Department said the crash happened at around 2:20 p.m. on Highway 109 near Babler Park Drive. Police said a pick-up truck veered off the road, struck a utility pole and flipped.

Police said there were two people inside — a male driver and a female passenger. The driver was pronounced dead on the scene and the passenger was taken to the hospital for life-saving treatment.

The roadway was closed for an investigation shortly after the crash. The road has since reopened.
