FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
800 E Glen Ave
At approximately 4:41 this morning, our department was dispatched to a report of a rollover vehicle accident with unknown injuries. Upon arrival, Command 600 found a four door sedan on its top with major damage to the vehicle. One occupant was observed walking around outside of the vehicle. Crews also observed two utility poles that were completely sheared off from the base with wires down in the intersection. Crews verified no further occupants were in the vehicle and shut down access to Glen from the 700 block to the 900 block as well as access to Glen from Bellevue Avenue due to the hazard. The occupant of the vehicle was transported by Advanced Medical Transport to a local hospital with what appeared to be minor to moderate injuries. Fire crews have cleared the scene but the 700 to 900 Block of Glen as well as access to Glen from Bellevue Avenue will be shut down for several hours to both vehicle and pedestrian traffic while Ameren crews work to repair the utility poles and power lines. Please avoid the area and find alternate routes of travel.
