PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- A St. Louis woman is dead and her friend remains hospitalized after an alleged drunken driver crashed into them in Philadelphia after a Cardinals game.
Cindy Grassi died Saturday night after suffering brain trauma and broken bones in the accident Thursday. Her friend Sandra Wacker has a broken leg and abrasions and is in critical condition at a Philadelphia hospital.
They had traveled to Philadelphia to see the Cardinals play the Phillies.
Shortly after the game, the two friends were crossing a street and were hit by a car.
Authorities say 18-year-old Joseph Genovese is charged with DUI and other offenses.
Wacker is a fourth grade teacher at Mark Twain Elementary School in the Brentwood School district. Grassi was also a teacher at Twain until she retired last year.
