Arnold Intersection Accidents at Richardson Road and I-55

As one of the largest cities in Jefferson County, Arnold is host to heavy traffic traveling along the I-55 north to St. Louis. This freeway alone features more than a hundred accidents every year between Jefferson and St. Louis County, but it can be particularly treacherous at on- and off-ramps.

Richardson Road is one of these dangerous intersections, as this stretch of road features at least six different off-ramps not far from multiple major businesses and a community parking lot. This area of Arnold features some of the busier shopping centers in the city, as it provides easy access to the neighborhoods of Windsor and Imperial. The nearby road of Vogel also directly exits out onto Richardson and I-55 North, which can easily confuse inexperienced drivers. There are also long stretches of road for the on- and off-ramps where drivers can become complacent, speed, or get distracted, often leading to catastrophic accidents.

In fact, the on- and off-ramps for I-55 along Richardson Road frequently see serious intersection accidents. In one recent incident, four vehicles collided at the Richardson on-ramp for southbound I-55, and in another, an individual died. As a whole, the city of Arnold has witnessed over 890 car accidents in a single recent year, one of which resulted in a fatality, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol.

The Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) found that over a three-year period the city saw over 50 accidents that involved serious injuries and six fatalities. This department determined that the major causes of these accidents were:

  • Being run off the road
  • Teen drivers
  • Distracted driving
  • Head-on collisions
  • Older drivers
  • Speeding
  • Aggressive driving

These accidents are often investigated by the Missouri State Highway Patrol or the Arnold Police Department. The Traffic Unit of the Arnold Police Department also has fully trained and certified traffic accident reconstructionists who can investigate a collision to identify the cause of the accident, as well as a supervising sergeant who is available 24/7.
