All I know is that an orange Chevy Cobalt was t-boned by a white Ford Excursion. It's right across from our hotel, and the road's been closed for at least four hours.

Oh so that wasn't an additional accident that I just passed at about 9:14 pm. I saw one there by the middle school. My husband also said there was a pretty bad one by Phillips 66 around 530 today

My son thinks it's the son of one of the middle school teachers. There have been reports that it was a 19 year old from Freeburg driving, with his girlfriend as the passenger (deceased). Apparently there was a dance at the school tonight with a band, and one of the middle school teachers has a 19 year old son who plays in a band, along with his girlfriend. Again, just speculation, but he put 2 and 2 together and it sounds like it might be right.
