On Saturday morning near Sappington, a car collided with a pole, killing a Lindbergh High School student.

At 1:20 in the morning, the Affton Southwest precinct of St. Louis County police got a complaint regarding a single-car collision involving a Lexus vehicle.

According to the police, the car exited the road while travelling at high speed east on Gravois Road and collided with a utility pole. Quintyn Lewis, 17, was reportedly declared dead at the scene.

“You can see the skid marks and the investigation report, and it kind of lines up with what my son was saying they had a blowout,” said Ben Franke, a parent of one of the crash victims. “If you go back down by the antique store, you can see the first tire track that, I guess, it’s mechanically impossible to just skid one tire. So, you can see where the double tire tracks when they hit the brakes and hit the curb and flew around and hit the pole.”

The driver and five other occupants of the car were present when it crashed. A third passenger suffered just minor injuries, while a second person sustained serious injuries.

The collision near the intersection of Gravois Road and Cinnabar Drive is being looked into by the Accident Reconstruction Unit and the Crimes Against Persons Unit of the St. Louis County Police.

Lindbergh Schools released a statement on Monday about the tragedy, saying the following:

“Our Lindbergh Schools community is shocked and saddened by the tragic automobile accident this weekend that resulted in the death of a member of the Lindbergh High School student body. We extend our sincere thoughts and sympathies to this student’s family, teachers, and friends, and our hearts go out to the families of the other students who were injured as well.”

The district said it’s also providing counseling for those devastated by the tragic accident.
