The crash involving a car and an SUV happened at the corner of 15th Avenue East and Superior Street shortly after noon. Both vehicles crashed into the west side of a building occupied by dog grooming business, knocking out part of the wall and breaking a window.

Police say the northbound car had failed to stop at the stop sign and collided by a westbound SUV. Officers say the 27-year-old man who was driving the car initially fled the scene but then returned and was uncooperative as officers arrested him.

Police say impairment is thought to have been a factor in the crash. The 27-year-old man, who suffered minor injuries in the crash, was taken to the St. Louis County Jail and faces a possible gross misdemeanor charge of fleeing an accident scene resulting in injury.

The 58-year-old woman who was driving the SUV was sent to a hospital. Police did not immediately know her medical condition.
