OUR EARLIER STORY:
A woman used an interesting technique to drop off a patient at St. Luke’s Health Center when she crashed her car through the emergency room doors.
The woman struck a parked car, then quickly reversed about 50 feet and crashed into the triage area, just inside the emergency room. The woman then put the car in gear, ending in her striking the same parked car again.
People sitting inside the triage area were nearly struck but there are no reports of injury.
“No body was hurt in the accident itself,” says Chesterfield Police Sgt. David Weiss. “There were people inside, at least one individual inside the triage area, and they were not injured at all.”
Police arrested the woman on suspicion of DUI.
