Woman killed in I-44 accident

ST. LOUIS – A 20-year-old female was killed Monday morning on Interstate 44.

Police shut down the highway between Grand and Jefferson during the investigation.

Schron Y. Jackson, a spokesperson for the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department, says the 20-year-old victim was driving east on I-44 when she lost control near Jefferson. A 42-year-old female driving a Kenworth semi truck changed lanes as she watched the victim's Toyota Yaris spin.

The 42-year-old woman's vehicle slid into the victim's vehicle, causing it to hit the guardrail.

The driver of the Yaris was pronounced dead at the scene. Her identity has not yet been released.

Lanes on eastbound I-44 were reopened by 1:10 p.m.
