ST. LOUIS — A man died early Sunday morning after the car he was driving crashed into the back of a parked vehicle along Interstate 70 in Maryland Heights. 

Danny W. Reeves, 52, of Newburg, died shortly after the 3:15 a.m. incident that occurred just east of the Blanchette Memorial Bridge, according to a Missouri Department of Public Safety incident report.

A passenger in his car was also injured, as was a pedestrian on the road who was hit by the parked car. Troopers said both the injured people were seriously hurt, and both were taken to a local hospital.
