Update: Man Died Today From Injuries in Sunday's Car Crash on Manchester

The man was the passenger in a car that pulled in the way of a pickup truck Sunday afternoon.

Updated at 2:55 p.m. Wednesday.

A man in his 60s was confirmed dead today by a spokesman for the Ellisville Police Department, three days after a crash on Manchester Road Sunday afternoon.

Sgt. Nancy Walker said in an email and phone call today that man, described only as a Ballwin man in his 60s, had died. This followed several hour of confusion; Walker had initially reported on Tuesday that he died, but later indicated that he may have been "brain dead" at the time.

The man and his wife, both in their 60s, suffered injuries in a car crash Sunday afternoon. He was the passenger in a Toyota sedan that pulled into the path of a westbound pickup truck on Manchester Road, police said.

His wife, who was driving, is still hospitalized, according to  spokeswoman Walker. She declined to release the victims' names. The couple are from Ballwin. 

The driver of a green Chevy pickup truck, a man in his 30s from House Springs, was released from the hospital, Walker said.


  • He was driving the pickup westbound on Manchester Road when the Toyota sedan pulled out of the parking lot at the . Walker told Patch on Monday that the pickup "basically T-boned" the Toyota.

    She said an accident reconstruction team was still investigating the crash.

    There have been multiple accidents here over the years. A close friend of mine was t-boned at this exact spot.

    This is right about where they want to put the entrance/exit for the proposed Walmart, too.

    That's interesting, Rebecca. I'll ask about that more. When did that accident happen?
    Kurt Greenbaum August 21, 2012 at 09:41 PM
    Thanks, Suzanne. The Walmart entrance would be on the other side of Manchester, but yes, the same general area.

    I am a family member and the "facts" of this story are not accurate. The driver of the Toyota is not in a coma and the passenger is not deceased at this time. I believe you should check your "facts" before printing an article as truth.

    Sgt. Nancy Walker, spokeswoman for the Ellisville Police Department, sent me this verbatim note at 1:15 p.m. on Tuesday: "Regarding the accident on Sunday - the male passenger of the car died. The woman driver is still critical. The male driver of the truck was released from the hospital." When I phoned immediately to confirm the information, she told me orally at that time that the female driver was in a coma. She used that word, and I confirmed that's the word she meant. I am following up with her to get more information.

    Kurt, it was back in early 2000.

    Sgt. Walker called back this afternoon to update us that the man actually died today. The story is updated to reflect this.
