Police: Woman Yanked On Steering Wheel, Caused 4-Car Crash
MADISON COUNTY, Ill. (KMOX) - A Maryland Heights woman charged with causing a crash on Interstate 55/70 last month that left three people seriously injured is now in custody.
28-year-old Anna Jarmon turned herself in this week in connection with criminal charges related to the February 19th crash.
Captain Brad Parsons, ISP District 11 Commander, says Jarmon was a front seat passenger in an SUV that was travelling south on I-55/70 on February 19th when she got into a heated argument with someone in the back seat.
Jarmon allegedly ordered the driver to pull over, and when that didn’t happen she grabbed the steering wheel and jerked it to the right.
The SUV flipped over, touching off a four-vehicle crash that caused serious injuries to three people: 33-year-old Cori Jarmon of St. Louis, 22-year-old Michael Adams of Swansea Ill., and 34-year-old Michael Lively of Collinsville, Ill.
Jarmon charged with three counts of reckless conduct for “acting in a reckless manner that caused great bodily harm to three different people”.
She’s been released on bond pending trial.
