First responders at the Rich & Charlies on S Woods Mill Road Monday morning

CHESTERFIELD, Mo. ( – Emergency crews are on the scene after a car crashed into a restaurant in west St. Louis County Monday morning.

The vehicle crashed into the Rich & Charlie’s Pizza on S Woods Mill Road just before 11 a.m.

A witness told News 4 the car left the Phillips 66 car wash, crossed the road and then crashed into the building. 

Police said the driver suffered a medical emergency, which led him to crash into the restaurant. The restaurant recently changed their hours, and are closed on Mondays, so no one was inside at the time.
