STL: Driver charged after double-fatal pedestrian crash in downtown Milwaukee

ST. LOUIS, MO — A 22-year-old man has been charged following a pedestrian crash early Wednesday morning, February 14, in downtown St. Louis that claimed the lives of a mother and daughter, reports News Tribune.

The victims both of Chicago, were on foot and using a crosswalk at the intersection of North 18th and Olive streets when they were struck by the suspect’s Jeep.

Preliminary details indicate the two women had just left a concert featuring the artists Drake and J. Cole. They were among thousands of people who had emerged from the Enterprise Center, only a few blocks from the crash site.

The suspect, a suburban St. Louis resident, had reportedly ran a number of red lights before his Jeep collided with a second vehicle and then the female pedestrians.

The suspect has since been charged with “two counts of first-degree involuntary manslaughter and two counts of armed criminal action” in the deaths of both victims. He was booked into jail on a $200,000 bond.
