Three people are dead and a fourth is injured after a convertible crashed into the deck of a Wildwood home last night. The crash happened just before 10:00 p.m. on Homestead Manor Drive near Babler State Park.
Monarch Fire Protection District spokesman Roger Herin told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that all of the victims were in their late teens or early twenties. Two were pronounced dead at the scene. A third died after being airlifted to a hospital. The fourth victim suffered minor injuries.
Two people who'd been sitting on the deck when it was hit were not hurt.
Herin says the cause of the crash isn't known, but speed may have been a factor.
A Jennings woman is in serious but stable condition after she crashed her car into a north city apartment building Thursday night. It happened just before midnight at Martin Luther King and Burd.
The crash punched a hole in the Arlington Grove Jeffery L. Boyd building. Crews spent most of Friday morning cleaning up the mess.
St.Louis police say the 33 year old woman had been speeding, blowing through two stop signs along Dr. King, before swerving to avoid a stopped car. That's when she lost control, hit two stop signs, a light pole and a metal trash can before crashing into the building.
Police say no one inside the building was hurt.
