Robertsville Man Crashes In Fricks Parking Lot

A Robertsville man is accused of leaving the scene of an accident, then hitting a stop sign and driving into the Fricks Parking lot before being arrested inside the store. Police responded to the accident at Washington Ave and Main St. The 57 year old Robertsville man, identified as Richard Kiefer, hit the rear of a pickup truck driven by a St. Clair man. After the accident, Kiefer took off south on Washington but collided with the stop sign at the intersection with Locust Street. He then continued forward into the parking lot of Frick’s Market where he left his vehicle and entered the store. He was arrested a short time later for Driving While Intoxicated. The suspect was found to be impaired on a combination of alcohol and drugs.

On March 24, 2015, Lufthansa Airlines pilot Andreas Lubitz steered a planeful of passengers into the French Alps, killing 150 people in a grisly act of murder/suicide.

The logical first question the world is asking is why? We ask this not only to make some sort of rational sense out of the irrational act, but also so that we can try to prevent something like it from happening again.
