Shortly after 4:00 P.M. on Monday, September 12, 2011, Collinsville patrol officers responded to an accident with injuries on Caseyville Road near the intersection of Erie St. Upon arrival it was determined the lone occupant of one of the vehicles, a mid-size passenger car, was deceased.
There were three other people in a mini-van that had been struck by the first vehicle that were injured. Two of those injured were adults and their injuries are serious. They were transported to a St. Louis area hospital for treatment. The third person was a child and the injuries seemed less serious in nature. The child was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
The case is being investigated by the Collinsville Police Department and the St. Clair County Coroner’s office. An initial investigation reveals the driver of the passenger car may have been at fault and speed may have played a role in the accident. The names are not being released pending notification.
