A man in Jefferson County is facing serious pending charges following a car accident that claimed the life of one man and sent a woman to the hospital, according to local sources. The 33-year-old Missouri man faces DWI/DUI charges in connection with the accident. He is currently being held against no bond in advance of a trial date, which has yet to be formally set.
According to the report filed by Missouri police, around noon on Dec. 6, an 88-year-old man and his 87-year-old wife were returning from their usual Friday lunch when their vehicle was struck by another car driven by a 33-year-old man. The force of the impact killed the older driver outright. His wife suffered multiple broken ribs as well as a concussion.
