Nurse seriously injured after truck crashes into South County Health Center

The driver of the truck and a nurse who was sitting inside the medical facility were injured in the crash

ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. — A health center worker was injured when a truck crashed into a facility in south St. Louis County Thursday afternoon.

The truck driver lost control in the 4800 block of South Lindbergh, which is right next to Lindbergh High School, and drove into the South County Health Center, according to the St. Louis County health department.

A health department spokesperson said the driver had dropped off his vehicle at a dealership across the street and was leaving the lot in a loaner Ford F-150. The driver said he was unable to slow the car down, and it smashed through the wall of the clinic, striking a Department of Public Health nurse inside.

The nurse was transported to a hospital with serious injuries and the driver, a 77-year-old man, was transported to a hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

This is a developing story and will be updated when more information is confirmed.
