On Tuesday morning, a car crashed into a Dairy Queen injuring six people. The accident occurred at approximately 9 a.m. when an elderly woman operating a Ford Taurus attempted to pull into a parking spot at 6070 South Lindbergh Blvd. location. The woman told individuals at the scene that she was there to pick up a cake for her son and that the brakes went out. The Taurus struck several patrons inside the building that regularly meet on Tuesday mornings to play bingo. The driver and five other individuals were injured, and two were transported to the hospital by ambulance. Authorities believe that the injured individuals sustained non-life threatening injuries.
