  • St. Louis waits at the pearly gates.
From the Department of Cruel Irony:

The Post-Dispatch reported this morning that an unidentified woman was killed around 2 a.m. after crashing her car into the gates of Calvary Cemetery in North St. Louis.

The woman was speeding westward on West Florissant Avenue in a Ford Escort when she hit a light post, a fence and, finally, the cemetery gate, where she was thrown from the car. She was carrying no ID.

But at least when it comes time for burial, she won't have far to go.
