UPDATE: Traffic moving along I-270

A massive accident along I-270 had traffic slowed to a crawl this morning.    If you're sitting in traffic along I-270 in north county--you will be there for at least another hour. The Illinois Department of Transportation says it won't be cleared until 10:20 or 10:30. 

    A massive accident involving three tractor trailers along I-270 has traffic at a standstill in the eastbound lanes of I-270 into Illinois on the Canal Bridge. 

      The cab of one of the trucks separated and was crushed. We are told none of the drivers were hurt. 

UPDATE: Assessing tornado damage in Texas

Thursday, 16 May 2013 07:31 Published in National News

  GRANBURY, Texas (AP) - It will be awhile before the full scope of the damage emerges after tornadoes in North Texas that killed at least six people.

   Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds says he hopes the death toll holds at six, with about 50 people injured and 250 people left homeless.

   Deeds says officials are trying to account for 14 people, but it's not clear if they're missing or are away from the area.

Police have identified the man who died after an incident at a manufacturing plant in Florissant.

An employee at St. Louis Cold Drawn Inc on Pershall Rd found the victim lying on the ground near an electrical box. The man, identified as Mach Nguyen was taken to the hospital where he died.

This is being investigated as an accidental death and a cause of death will be released after an autopsy.
