ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Florissant police say a distracted teenage driver crashed her car into an apartment complex late Monday night.

According to police, the teen drove her PT Cruiser through the sliding glass door of one of the apartments at a four-unit building near Howdershell Road and Keeven Lane.

There residents of the apartment were inside at the time of the accident, but were not injured.

Police say the front half of the teen's car was parked inside the kitchen and dining room, and that the apartment will have to be condemned due to extensive structural damage.

A spokesperson with the Florissant police department tells News 4 that the teen was not paying attention and was speeding when she smashed through the building.

She was not injured in the crash.

Authorities do not believe drugs or alcohol played a role in the accident.
