ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) –  A building collapsed in north St. Louis Sunday morning after being struck by a vehicle. Emergency crews rushed to the scene after the car crashed into the building at the intersection of Dr. Martin Luther King Drive and N. Taylor. The building was vacant and no one was trapped in the collapse.

St. Louis Fire Department spokesperson Garon Mosby says two people from the car were transported to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, one adult and one child.

The damaged building will be knocked down by fire crews to ensure that the scene is safe for area residents.

Initially there was a report that the building may have collapsed onto a corner bus stop. It turns out that that bus stop is located across the street.
