Pedestrian hit and killed while crossing Tesson Ferry Road


A pedestrian crossing Tesson Ferry Road was killed last week when she was hit by a car.

Louise R. Williams, 72, of Affton, died in the crash that happened around 6:55 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 29 at the intersection of Tesson Ferry and Solar Lane. Paramedics from the Mehlville Fire Protection District pronounced Williams dead at the scene at 7:05 a.m.

Williams was crossing Tesson Ferry Road when she was hit by a 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by a Crestwood man, according to Missouri State Highway Patrol. The driver, 64, was wearing a seat belt. The Jeep had extensive damage after the crash.

Williams’ body was transported to the St. Louis County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Williams is at least the second pedestrian injured this year while trying to cross Tesson Ferry. A pedestrian was injured earlier this year at the Tesson Ferry-Gravois intersection.
