KIRKWOOD, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri Highway Patrol says an “inattentive” driver caused a crash that injured himself, two child passengers, and a Kirkwood police officer.
The crash happened Sunday afternoon on Interstate 44 in St. Louis County.
A Kirkwood officer was assisting a stranded motorist when a passing vehicle struck the officer’s SUV.
The patrol says the 25-year-old driver, a 10-year-old girl, and an infant boy were taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
The 36-year-old officer was treated for moderate injuries. The patrol report says the driver who struck the police SUV “was inattentive to the roadway.”
