A three-car accident on Hwy. N sent one driver to hospital last weekend, the Missouri State Highway Patrol reported.
Andrew J. Smith, 19, of O'Fallon was eastbound on Hwy. N just after 6 p.m. on January 19 when he stopped to make a left turn onto Glen Brook Manor Drive.
Behind him, Ian B. Nelson, 16, of Lake Saint Louis, did not see Smith's Suburban stopped for the turn, and switched lanes suddenly. Nelson's Subaru Legacy then struck a Pontiac Grand Am driven by Donna J. Hess, 55, of Wentzville.
The force of the impact caused Hess' car to strike Smith's.
Hess sustained minor injuries and was transported to Mercy Hospital in Creve Coeur.
All the drivers involved were wearing safety belts.
