A 20-year-old driver from Eureka, Patricia Erb, was heading southbound on Interstate 270, north of Interstate 44, at 5:05 p.m. Sunday when an unknown driver made a sudden lane change. As Erb attempted to avoid hitting that vehicle, she lost control of her 2008 Chevrolet Cobalt, according to a Missouri Highway Patrol report.
Erb's Cobalt traveled into a different lane, and was struck by a 2000 Dodge Neon driven by 23-year-old Lauren Pannier, of Arnold.
Authorities stated the force of that impact caused Erb's car back into her original lane, where her car was hit by a 2012 Toyota Camry, being driven by Charles Schupbach, 48, of Sparta, IL.
All three drivers were wearing safety belts, according to the report.
Pannier was taken to St. Anthony's Medical Center by a Kirkwood Fire and EMS crew. Erb and Schupbach were not injured.
Both cars driven by Erb and Pannier received extensive damage and were towed from the accident, but Schupbach was able to drive his Camry from the scene.
