Thursday in North St. Louis, a woman was killed after two cars crashed into one another, and hit a church. Likewise, the accident happened at the 4400 block of Rosalie in St. Louis, Missouri. The accident happened when an SUV collided with another vehicle, and sent it into the St. Paul Temple Missionary Baptist Church. Soon after the collision, a fire broke out inside the church, yet was extinguished rather quickly.
Furthermore, the accident happened when the 18-year-old driver of the SUV was speeding for unknown reasons. In addition, the driver of the other vehicle was making a U-turn, and as a result was struck by the SUV. The driver of the SUV was arrested on the scene. The person in the other vehicle, which was struck, was 53-year-old, Sandra Washington. Tragically, Washington was killed from her injuries sustained in the motor vehicle accident. The front entrance of the church was seriously damaged, and is estimated to take weeks to fix.
