ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - A Jefferson County woman died and several people were injured in an accident involving five cars in North City Friday afternoon.

The crash happened just before 4:00 p.m. near the intersection of Broadway and Humbolt. Firefighters say one patient was extricated, two patients were taken to a hospital in critical condition, two were transported in serious condition and three other victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries, firefighters say. One of the victims, later identified as Crystal McAlpin, 33, of High Ridge, died at a hospital.

Police say a 2019 Chevy Cruze and 2008 Chrysler 300 were going northbound on Broadway when the Cruze hit a 2010 Honda CRV that was stopped at a red light at Broadway and Humboldt. The Cruze then went into the southbound lanes and hit a 2023 Chevy Bolt and 2019 Nissan Rogue. The CRV then hit the Chrysler 300. McAlpin was driving the CRV. Everyone involved in the crash except the driver of the Rogue was injured.

All lanes of Broadway were closed at Humboldt for several hours after the crash.
