ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. – A woman was struck and killed Wednesday morning.
Troopers said the driver of a Volkswagen was making a left from Woodstock Road onto South Florissant Road. That’s when police said they hit a woman crossing the street.
The man driving the Volkswagen went to check on the woman, and that’s when another car struck her.
Unlike the driver of the first car, the second car did not stop. Police do say it was dark at the time, so they’re working to determine if that other driver saw her or not.
This happened just before 6:00 a.m. Ferguson and Normandy police were at the scene, but the Missouri State Highway Patrol has now taken over this investigation.
According to the sergeant from the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Mike Autenrieth, the Volkswagen struck the woman in the left lane of southbound traffic, and crews have this blocked off as they continue their investigation. They are collecting evidence including surveillance video to hopefully identify the second car and conducting interviews as well.
If you have any information, call Troop C headquarters at 636-300-2800.
