Patrol: 3 killed, 4 injured in I-270 crash near St. Louis


ST. LOUIS (AP) — Officials say three people have died and four more have been injured in a crash on Interstate 270 outside St. Louis. The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the crash happened just after 6 p.m. Sunday in the eastbound lanes of the interstate when a speeding Lexus went out of control and sideswiped another car before hitting a sport utility vehicle. The Lexus then went off the road, rolled and hit a fence. Investigators say the driver of the Lexus, 24-year-old Kenrick Smalling, was pronounced dead at the scene. Two passengers in the Lexus — 24-year-old Dion Martin and 21-year-old Aliyah Tatum — were rushed to a hospital where they died of their injuries.
