Not all crashes during storm are storm-related

The winter storm that dumped about a foot of snow on St. Louis over the weekend blew out of Missouri and continued to snarl traffic and cause chaos elsewhere as it moved east across the country. According to news reports, at least nine people were killed and dozens more injured in motor vehicle crashes in which the storm was a factor.

Report: Missouri drivers take a turn for the worse

Late last year, a report was released that confirmed what many St. Louis residents have believed for some time: Missouri drivers are getting worse. According to, Missouri drivers had managed to stay out of its annual top ten ranking of worst state drivers since 2014, but that streak has ended.

‘Most dangerous time to be on Missouri roads’

Two of the three year-end holidays are in the rear-view mirror, but perhaps the wildest, most perilous one is still ahead. Thanksgiving and Christmas are behind us, but New Year’s Eve – the most notorious drinking holiday of them all – is just a few days away.

‘Tis the season to be careful on Missouri roads

It’s the time of year when we are focused more than ever on our families and friends. Holidays bring Americans together across political, religious and cultural divides. The easiest way for most of us in the St. Louis metro to go and visit those who are important to us is to get in our cars, pick-ups and SUVs and drive there.

Missouri State Highway Patrol helps victims of impaired drivers

While much media attention has been rightly focused on the dangers posed to motorists by distracted drivers, there is little doubt that impaired drivers remain the most dangerous people behind the wheel. At this time of year, when weather and holiday travel combine to increase risks of motor vehicle crashes that result in injuries and fatalities, it’s good to know that the Missouri State Highway Patrol continues to offer assistance to people whose lives have been affected by impaired drivers.

Study: Distracted driving crash injuries more likely to be severe

When a driver is paying attention to their phone rather than St. Louis traffic, they typically do not react as their vehicle closes in on another vehicle or pedestrian. After all, they are looking at what’s on their electronic device, not the impending collision. So the results of a new study make perfect sense: researchers have found that crashes caused by distracted drivers are more likely to result in severe injuries and fatalities than other motor vehicle wrecks.
