OLIVETTE, Mo. – The Olivette Police Department says the car that struck and killed a 73-year-old woman at an Olivette Starbucks can help with their investigation.

According to an Olivette spokeswoman, the 78-year-old Olivette man was driving a 2019 Audi Q7 when we crashed into the Starbucks.

This car holds specific mechanical information that can be taken from the vehicle, similar to an aircraft’s “black box.”

As of now, the police are not releasing the name of the 78-year-old man because the investigation is still ongoing.
