Maryland Heights Intersections Accidents at I-270 and Dorsett Road

Located on the northwest side of St. Louis County, Maryland Heights is a quiet and charming suburb bordered by the St. Louis International Airport. Though not as heavily trafficked as downtown St. Louis, Maryland Heights sees numerous drivers traveling along the I-270 freeway to and from the airport, or on their daily commute through nearby neighborhoods like Chesterfield, Creve Coeur, and Bridgeton. This particular stretch of freeway can become packed with cars, and it is no wonder the intersection of I-270 and Dorsett Road can be hazardous.

This intersection is particularly dangerous due to the large amount of cross-traffic that comes with drivers entering and exiting the I-270 freeway. Multiple lanes of traffic merge and split on either side of the freeway, which can be absolute chaos during rush hour. Dorsett Road itself turns into a corkscrew, with east and westbound lanes crossing each other at least two times. Drivers who are distracted or speeding can easily collide with other vehicles while rushing to get to the right entrance and cause a serious intersection accident. Dorsett is also packed with many major businesses, with Dorsett Square shopping center only a block west of I-270.

In fact, in 2020, the Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP) had to shut down the I-270 due to a serious multi-vehicle accident at I-270 and Dorsett Road, during which at least six individuals had to be transported to an emergency room. In previous years, Maryland Heights saw over 1,183 car accidents, including two fatal collisions and 470 people injured. These accidents are often investigated by either the MSHP or Maryland Heights Police Department, which allow accident victims to easily pull a copy of their police report online.

According to the Missouri Department of Transportation (MDOT), the most common causes of accidents in Maryland Heights that result in serious injuries include:

  • Aggressive driving
  • Speeding
  • Being run off the road
  • Distracted driving
  • Teen drivers
  • Older drivers
  • Tailgating
