ST. CHARLES ( – A St. Louis man was killed after the driver of another vehicle suffered a medical condition, which led to a seven-vehicle crash in Tuesday afternoon.

According to authorities, a driver exited Interstate 64 at Westbound Route 94 in St. Charles around 4 p.m., and due to a medical issue, did not slow as they approached the intersection. 

Instead, the car crashed into six other vehicles waiting at the light and continued through the intersection. 

Three people, including the driver who suffered the medical condition, were transported to the hospital for treatment. William Pearson, 29, was pronounced dead following the crash. He was in one of the vehicles that was stopped at a red light when the crash occurred.

The driver who suffered the medical condition and another driver sustained moderate injuries in the crash.

The crash closed all lanes of westbound Route 94 near the intersection. Initially, onlookers thought the driver fled the scene, but the car drifted through the intersection after striking the other vehicles and slid down an embankment. 

All lanes reopened before 7:50 p.m.
