Ballwin 3-Year-Old Air-Evacuated, Woman Hospitalized After Car Accident
Authorities indicate the accident was a result of the driver overcorrecting while traveling on northbound Interstate 55.
Wildwood resident Robin Baker was driving her 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix northbound on Interstate 55 in Ste. Genevieve County Friday when her car exited the road to the left at 11:55 a.m. According to a Missouri State Highway Patrol report, Baker overcorrected and the Grand Prix then exited the right side of the interstate before striking a rock bluff and overturning.
The accident occurred at mile marker 158.
Baker, 57, had a 3-year-old Ballwin resident, Mason Spencer, in the car at the time of the accident. Spencer was taken by an air evacuation team to St. Louis Children's Hospital, according to the accident report.
Baker was taken to Jefferson Memorial Medical Center by a Ste. Genevieve County ambulance crew. She was wearing a safety belt, according to authorities.
Her car was totaled and towed from the scene.
