ST. LOUIS — A collision involving three vehicles happened Friday morning near the intersection of Virginia and Gravois in south St. Louis.

Two vehicles were involved in an accident with a tree. One of those vehicles continued for about a half block before crashing with a parked car.

Several items were removed from the vehicle by a group of people who may have been connected to the third vehicle, the driver of which was transported by emergency medical services.

They used hammers and saws to split the lid of the trunk in half, so they could get to the different things inside.
