ST. LOUIS — Two people have died after a car crashed into the entrance of a Schnucks grocery store in south St. Louis Friday afternoon, according to authorities. Both people were inside the vehicle during the incident.
Emergency crews responded to the store located at 1020 Loughborough Drive around 3:00 p.m. FOX 2’s Bommarito Automotive Group SkyFOX flew over the scene, capturing footage of the vehicle flipped on its side.
