Wentzville woman dies in I-70 crash


ST. CHARLES COUNTY — A Wentzville woman died Thursday in a crash on Interstate 70.

Abigail E. Layton, 21, was a passenger in a pickup that made an unsafe lane change, according to the Missouri Highway Patrol, and hit the rear of another vehicle.

The pickup carrying Layton, a 1998 Ford Ranger, then veered off the roadway, hit a guardrail, went back across all lanes of traffic and hit a median. Layton was ejected in the crash and pronounced dead at a hospital. She was not wearing a seatbelt, police say. 

The crash happened just before noon on eastbound I-70, west of Highway Z. No other injuries were reported.
