Jason C. Markezich, 33, of Wentzville and a 7-year-old passenger sustained minor injuries after a tractor trailer overturned on Highway 364 Monday afternoon.
According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Markezich was westbound on Highway 364 west of Mid Rivers Mall Drive at 4:20 p.m. in a 2016 Freightliner.
Due to driver inattention, the truck traveled off the left side of the road, returned to the roadway, and then traveled off the right side. There, the truck hit a concrete drainage pipe and overturned.
The child was taken to St. Louis Children’s hospital and Markezich was taken to SSM St. Joseph Hospital – St. Charles.
Both were wearing safety devices at the time of the crash.
