ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) – Police say a woman was not injured after she lost control of her vehicle and crashed into a shoe store in northwest St. Louis on Friday.

Authorities said the woman was driving westbound on Page Avenue around 2 a.m. when she claims she was attempted to avoid a group of vehicles racing. She left the roadway, drove up a small hill and into the storefront of the Kids Footlocker at Grand and Page.

The woman was not injured and no one was inside the store at the time of the wreck.

Although no merchandise was damaged, building inspectors were on the scene determining the extent of damage done to the structure.

The manager of the store tells News 4 he will now have to hire a security guard to stand on-duty until the front window is repaired.

No word if charges could be filed against the driver.

The investigation is ongoing.
