A teenage driver has been arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated after she struck a parked car and a garage wall, then backed into a glass window of a hospital emergency room in Chesterfield Friday morning.

Yohontas Moore, 17, was charged with driving while intoxicated.

The Monarch Fire Department said the incident happened at St. Luke’s Hospital’s room around 3 a.m.

Officials at the scene said no one was hurt.

Police told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that three people were in the car when it pulled up to the emergency room. A sick person, Moore and another person went inside. Moore then returned to the car to move it.

Police say that’s when she struck the parking garage and a parked car. She put the car in reverse and smashed through a 10-foot section of glass near the triage area of the hospital.
