'Oh my God': Neighbors say airborne sedan highlights speeding problem in south St. Louis

A neighbor captured photos of the aftermath of a wreck on Delor Street on Monday. A car took out a street sign and a neighbor's landscaping.

ST. LOUIS — Photos of an airborne car laying on top of a street sign highlight the speeding problem along Delor Street in south St. Louis, neighbors said.

"People come through here 50, 60 miles an hour constantly,” Christine Mitchell said.

That speed in her 30-mile-an-hour neighborhood has major consequences.

"Everybody's car who lives here has been hit,” she said. Hers included. "I just had the mirror fixed. They knocked the plastic off the mirror."

She hasn't even lived there two years, and she said there have been four wrecks at one intersection: Delor and Alexander. The latest was Monday morning.

"Oh my God,” Mitchell said when 5 On Your Side showed her photos a neighbor took.

A sedan went airborne and took out a neighbor's landscaping and a road sign.

"I think they should put a stop sign here personally, because it's just day and night,” Mitchell sad.

The city said speed humps are the best idea. Alderman Carol Howard said a traffic study determined last fall that Delor needs them. But that haven’t been installed yet.

5 On Your Side learned Monday they are scheduled to be installed next week.

"There's no reason to drive that fast up the street,” Mitchell said.
