A Jennings woman is in serious but stable condition after she crashed her car into a north city apartment building Thursday night. It happened just before midnight at Martin Luther King and Burd.

St.Louis police say the 33 year old woman had been speeding, blowing through two stop signs along Dr. King, before swerving to avoid a stopped car. That's when she lost control, hit two stop signs, a light pole and a metal trash can before crashing into the building.
Police say no one inside the building was hurt.
