ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - One person died in a three-vehicle crash Thursday afternoon, and two others were injured.
Schron Jackson, Public Information Manager for the Metropolitan Police Department, says a St. Louis City License Collector's vehicle was side swiped by a Ford Explorer near 9th and N. Market around 12:30 p.m.
The Explorer left the scene of the accident, and the license collector vehicle followed while calling 911.
The driver of the license collector vehicle said he saw the Explorer get onto the highway and get off at Branch. He then saw that the Explorer had been involved in an accident with a black or grey Pontiac Bonneville at the intersection of Broadway and Branch.
Jackson says it appears the Explorer did not stop at a stop sign and hit the Bonneville.
Three males inside the Bonneville were trapped and were extracted from the vehicle by the St. Louis Fire Department.
The 53-year-old driver of the Bonneville, identified as Marcus Dorsey, was pronounced dead at the scene.
A 62-year-old man and a 35-year-old man were transported to area hospitals and are listed in serious condition.
The driver of the Explorer, a 41-year-old male, was taken to an area hospital where he was treated and released. He was then arrested by police.
The suspect's name will be released if charges are filed.
