An accident in Bridgeton left one woman dead on Thursday morning when an Allied Waste truck crashed head-on with the woman’s car. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, around 7 am Teneacha White (33) was driving her 1999 Mercury Sable eastbound on St. Charles Rock Road when she crossed the centerline and hit a trash truck driven by Wayne Jones (43). Jones had been headed back to the trash facility at the time of the accident.
Teneacha White was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. Wayne Jones suffered moderate injuries as a result. According to the article they were both wearing seatbelts at the time of the accident. St. Charles Rock Road was shut down in both directions for more than three hours as a result of the accident. Information about what caused White to cross the center line has not been released.
I would like to offer my condolences to the friends and family of Teneacha White, this is a tragic accident, and shows how dangerous large trucks can be.
