Police: Teen Driver Crashes Into Parade-Goers; 8 Injured

HAZELWOOD, Mo. (AP) – Authorities say a teenage driver in suburban St. Louis struck another vehicle and then spun into people who were waiting for a homecoming parade to begin, injuring several of them.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Hazelwood police say none the eight people who were hurt in Saturday’s crash suffered life-threatening injuries. An unknown number were taken to hospitals. Police did not say if those in the vehicles were among the injured.

Police arrested the 17-year-old driver of the Ford Mustang that struck the parade-goers on charges of second-degree assault and careless and imprudent driving. They say the Mustang struck another vehicle near an intersection before spinning out of control and hitting the pedestrians, who were waiting for the start of the Hazelwood West High School homecoming parade.
