Man Charged After Killing a Pedestrian in St. Louis
Drag racing is something that still takes place in St. Louis, and when it does it can end rather badly for those involved. According to an article on the KMOV website, one man was recently drag racing another driver when he struck a pedestrian.
The incident occurred at about 11:30 am, and the suspect in the case was traveling at a high rate of speed along Natural Bridge in the Greater Ville neighborhood of St. Louis. To make matters worse, he fled the scene of the accident.
Authorities later found his abandoned vehicle, and he was eventually located and taken into custody. The victim, who was a fifty-five year-old woman, died at the scene of the collision.
