Fatal St. Louis Crash Claims the Life of One Woman

It’s important to obey the rules of the road, and that includes stopping at red lights and stop signs. A recent accident in St. Louis has claimed the life of one woman because the driver of an SUV failed to stop at a stop sign, according to an article on the St. Louis Fox News website.

An eyewitness claims that she saw the driver of a black SUV blow through a stop sign and then hit an oncoming sedan. After the impact, the SUV swerved and spun, and it ended up crashing through the wall of a local Baptist church. The woman who was driving the sedan was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.

The driver of the SUV exited his vehicle and attempted to make a quick getaway. However, he was apprehended by a local postal worker just a short distance from the crash. The postal worker was able to keep him there until the police arrived.

These types of fatal crashes are all too common in St. Louis, and every year they claim more and more lives.
