BRIDGETON, Mo. (AP) — A man has died in a two-vehicle crash in Bridgeton, the Missouri State Highway Patrol reported.

The crash happened Monday afternoon on North Lindbergh Boulevard when a southbound sedan attempted to switch lanes and hit the back of a vehicle being towed by a southbound tractor-trailer, the patrol said.
