Multiple agencies respond to serious crash at 6640 State Route 140, driver airlifted to St Louis
EDWARDSVILLE - Holiday Shores Fire Protection District, Prairietown Fire Department and Meadowbrook Fire Department members were dispatched at 3:48 p.m. Wednesday to a very serious one-vehicle crash at 6640 State Route 140, technically an Edwardsville address.
Holiday Shores Lt. Todd Frank said a single-motor vehicle hit a tree at that address and required extended extrication time. The single passenger was eventually airlifted to a St. Louis hospital, the Holiday Shores fire official said.
“When the page came across it was one vehicle struck a tree,” he said.
The Illinois State Police is still investigating the accident, Frank said.
