Fatal University City car crash death of Deion Robinson – Obituary

Tragedy struck near St. Louis when a horrifying accident claimed the lives of three 15-year-olds. The incident occurred on Wednesday morning when a 2016 Hyundai Accent, belonging to the driver’s mother, careened into an unoccupied brick residence, as reported by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol’s report, the vehicle was deemed to be “operating at excessive speed for the prevailing road conditions” as it failed to negotiate a bend, leading to the catastrophic collision in University City, Missouri. The incident was reported at approximately 6:30 a.m.

The three adolescents, all hailing from the same high school, met a tragic end at the accident scene. Law enforcement authorities have now identified the victims: Deion Robinson, the operator of the ill-fated vehicle, and his passengers Johnnie Ursery and Demetrius Ingram.

It is worth noting that the legal driving age in Missouri stands at 16, permitting 15-year-olds to acquire a provisional license, provided they are accompanied by a licensed adult while driving.

University City police sought the assistance of the highway patrol to lead the investigation. Corporal Dallas Thompson of the patrol revealed that authorities had attempted to pull over a vehicle resembling the one involved in the house collision earlier, but they lost sight of it.

Their search for the car had been underway before the tragic accident unfolded.

St. Louis Alderman Sharon Tyus, who arrived at the accident site, disclosed that she and her husband had purchased the residence a few years ago, with plans to renovate it for future rental.

The three teenagers were students at Ladue Horton Watkins High School, where grief counselors were present to support the student body on Wednesday. Additionally, students were organizing a memorial vigil to remember their fallen classmates.
