Bill “Easy” Reiter

Got a heads up from Driver Mac McNeese and found this article on the Ratnet.  I had the pleasure of having Easy in my pit many times.  Great guy. Great Fighter WSO!



ST. PETERS, Mo. – A 68-year-old man died in an area hospital after he was rear-ended in a crash Wednesday morning.

According to a release from the St. Peters Police Department, William Reiter of Florissant, Mo., was driving his Cadillac sedan at around 11:30 a.m. when he slowed down due to an unrelated accident. The car behind him did not slow down, and rear ended him at a high speed.

Reiter told officers that he was in pain after the crash, and officers requested an ambulance to take him to the hospital. While being evaluated at the hospital, Reiter died from an internal injury that police said was presumed to be caused by the crash.

St. Peters accident re-constructionists are investigating the accident, which is standard practice on any fatal accident. No charges are expected at this time.
