hellcats crash


Four brand new, superfast, and expensive cars were ripped off from a St. Peters dealership early Friday morning. The suspects then crashed three of them, almost immediately.

The incident unfolded around 1:30 a.m. at the Napleton Mid Rivers Dodge dealership. The teenage suspects did not get far down the road before they crashed. The suspects, said to be from the Kansas City area, did not know the roads here. The powerful engines proved to be too much for the 16, 17, and 19-year-old drivers.

The trio was caught after a short foot chase.
