ST. LOUIS, MO – The mayor of St. Louis, Lyda Krewson, has announced changes to the roadways in the downtown area following a series of fatal crashes of late, including one on Monday that claimed the life of a teenage girl.
According to KMOX, Krewson said that the area has seen multiple cases of “cruising, drag racing,” and cars “doing wheelies and doughnuts.”
Krewson said that some of the empty parking lots where the stunts and racing is happening will be closed and that there are changes being implemented to alter the flow of traffic.
These plans are still in the early stages and do not have a date set for when they will go into effect.
According to reports, however, more information may follow later this week.
