Sharon E. Mueller, 60, of O’Fallon was killed Friday morning in a three-car crash on Highway 370 in St. Charles County.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Mueller’s vehicle, a 2006 Hyundai Elantra, was disabled in Lane 3 of Highway 370 west of Highway 94 when the car was struck by a 2007 Chevy Silverado driven by 23-year-old James E. Kay from O’Fallon. The impact caused the Elantra to crash into the rear of a 2009 Hyundai Santa Fe driven by a 71-year-old woman from Hazelwood.
Mueller was taken to Mercy Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Neither of the other drivers were injured.
James E. Kay was arrested by the Missouri State Highway Patrol on suspicion of driving while intoxicated (serious physical injury). Charges have not yet been issued, but 70 West Sentinel will update the story when that information becomes available.
