ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. (KTVI) — A Missouri woman has died after a vehicle crashed into the building where she was working Sunday night.

According to Missouri State Highway Patrol, 25-year-old Marissa Politte, an X-ray technician, was walking out of work at the Total Access Urgent in Ballwin just after 8 p.m. when a Honda Pilot lost control.

She was taken to hospital, where she later died.

Gieger was taken into custody at the scene, and charges are anticipated. The investigation is ongoing.
