SINGLE-CAR CRASH ON RICHVIEW ROAD SENDS MARION MAN TO STL HOSPITAL

JEFFERSON COUNTY — A 51-year-old Marion man was injured Monday morning in a single-vehicle crash on Richview Road.

According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, a vehicle being driven by Danny Riley apparently ran off the north side of the road, continued down a roadside ditch, struck a driveway and went airborne before rolling several times with the car coming to rest on its top.

Firefighters with the Jefferson Fire Protection District had to extricate Riley from his vehicle. He was transported by Litton’s Ambulance to the Logan Street Baptist Church parking lot where he was airlifted to a St. Louis hospital for treatment.
