The Missouri State Highway Patrol has released information related to a multi-car crash that tied up southbound traffic on Interstate 270 just north of Creve Coeur Tuesday.
What was initially reported as an 8-car crash was apparently a 4-car crash in the eyes of the Highway Patrol.
According to authorities, at 7:53 a.m., Michael Allen, 15, of Fenton, was driving southbound in a Toyota Camry and struck the rear of a KIA Optimdriven by Tinika Chaney-Daniels, 38, of St. Louis.
Stacey Scathered, 45, of Crestwood, struck Allen's car from behind in a Chevy Suburban. Her vehicle was struck by a Ford Edge driven by John King, 42, of St. Louis.
Scathered and King were both taken to Mercy Hospital St. Louis with what were termed "minor" injuries.
