One person died and another was injured in a wreck involving an overturned car in St. Charles County Tuesday afternoon.

The accident occurred around 4 p.m. on westbound Interstate 64 near the Highway K exit ramp.

Police said a black Dodge sedan was moving at a high rate of speed when it hit a white SUV, which then struck and concrete median wall flipped over several times.

Both victims were inside the overturned car. The driver, Pamela Yaeger, 65, was pronounced dead at the scene, while the other victim, a 36-year-old woman, was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

The driver of the sedan suffered minor injuries and was arrested for a suspected DWI.
