ST. LOUIS (KMOV) - A man died in a three-car crash that happened near the South City-South County line Friday afternoon.

The crash happened at the intersection of Broadway and River City Casino Boulevard around 1:00 p.m. Police tell News 4 that a grey Hyundai hit a red Chevy Camaro and a silver Ford Fiesta. The driver of the Camaro was killed.
