ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - One woman is dead and two others, including a child, were injured after a multi-car crash near a south St. Louis County intersection Sunday afternoon.

An initial investigation showed a Ford Focus was stopped southbound on Mackenzie Road, waiting to turn onto Langley Avenue, when it was hit from the rear by a Volkswagen Jetta. This then resulted in a multi-car accident.
