ST. LOUIS (KMOX) — The St. Charles man killed in a crash near the Poplar Street Bridge early Thursday morning has been identified — and his family is asking for help.

George West leaves behind his wife Danielle, who's expecting their second child in September, and a 12-year-old daughter.

West was heading onto the westbound Poplar Street Bridge from northbound Route 3 on the Illinois side when he lost control and hit the concrete median. Police said he was thrown over the guardrail and hit by oncoming traffic.

West's family has set up a Go Fund Me. They say he was uninsured and are hoping to raise $10,000.
