A trip to Walgreens ended in tragedy Monday evening in a freak accident, which involved a store patron being killed by a vehicle. Furthermore, police have identified the heroic mother who saved her child as, Colleen Segbers from Filmore Street in St. Louis. Segbers and her daughter were at the Walgreens store on Gravois when a car in the handicapped section suddenly accelerated, killing Segbers at the scene. The elderly woman who was driving the vehicle was adjusting her radio, and although she thought her car was in park, it suddenly jolted forward. Additionally, the woman in the vehicle accidentally pressed the gas petal instead of the brake. Although the woman states she tried to swerve away from hitting Segbers, and was obviously unsuccessful. Her family and community are remembering Segbers as a hero because she sacrificed her life to save her young daughter. Likewise, if Segbers had not pushed her daughter out of the way, it would have been her daughter killed instead of her. A website has been set up online to help the Segbers family pay for funeral expenses.
