Wentzville Intersection Accidents at W Pearce Blvd and Wentzville Pkwy
Resting on the western edge of St. Charles County, the city of Wentzville is a quiet suburban neighborhood located 40 miles northwest of St. Louis at the crossroads of I-64 and I-70. One of the fastest-growing cities in Missouri, Wentzville is home to popular events like the St. Louis Renaissance Faire and St. Charles County Fair, as well as major businesses like the General Motors Wentzville Assembly Center. Given the massive growth the city has seen, it is no wonder that residents are now dealing with a growing number of auto accidents, especially along major roads like Pearce Boulevard and Wentzville Parkway.
Located just north of the I-70, the intersection of W. Pearce Blvd and Wentzville Pkwy is surrounded on all sides by shopping centers, making it a hotbed for heavy traffic at all hours. Both roads feature at least six lanes of traffic, as well as multiple mergers, which are packed with drivers heading to and from the interstate or to one of the major businesses in the area. While we would hope that drivers would take extra care along these crowded roads, the reality is that negligent drivers can – and do — easily cause serious intersection accidents in Wentzville.
An estimated 850 accidents occurred in Wentzville in a single recent year, resulting in roughly 187 individuals being injured and three dying, according to the Missouri State Highway Patrol (MSHP). A deeper look at accident reports over the last year shows that many occur along Wentzville Pkwy, particularly near I-70. Thankfully, the Wentzville Police Department is located only a few blocks away on Schroeder Creek Blvd, allowing emergency personal to easily reach the scene of an accident, and SSM Health St. Joseph Hospital is also just north along Wentzville Pkwy for anyone in need of medical attention.
In a three-year period, the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT) identified the major causes of Wentzville collisions, including:
- Being run off the road
- Unlicensed drivers
- Lack of seatbelt use
- Young drivers
- Commercial vehicle collisions
- Older drivers
- Distracted driving
- Head-on collisions
- Motorcycle accidents
- Unsignalized intersection accidents
