Flerlage lost control on the ice and his 1998 Mazda Protege crossed the center line and struck the front of a 2010 Mazda 3 driven by a 40-year-old male from Winfield.

Neither driver was wearing a safety device.

Flerlage was pronounced dead on the scene by St. Charles County Ambulance District personnel. The Winfield man sustained serious injuries and was airlifted to Mercy Hospital St. Louis.
