Car crashes into North St. Louis home

A scary Memorial Day for one elderly north St. Louis resident.

Around 10 this morning, a car crashed through the front wall of a 72-year-old woman's home. Two passengers in the car were injured, but the homeowner was uninjured. KSDK reports that rescue crews noticed the smell of natural gas and Laclede Gas employees shut off the home's supply.

The home has been deemed uninhabitable by city officials and the woman will have to stay with her daughter while repairs are performed. No word on why the car lost control and hit the house.

CHAFFEE, Mo. (AP) — A federal agency has sent investigators to southeast Missouri, where seven people were injured when two cargo trains collided on tracks under a highway overpass, causing the overpass to partially collapse.

Scott County Sheriff's Office Dispatcher Clay Slipis said the collision happened around 2:30 a.m. Saturday near Chaffee when a Union Pacific train hit a Burlington Northern train. Slipis said several cars derailed and hit a pillar of the Highway M overpass, bringing it down. Two cars were on that stretch of road.

Seven people — five in the vehicles and both train conductors — were taken to a hospital. Slipis said all but one was treated and released; the seventh is in good condition.

The National Transportation Safety Board says it's sent a crew to investigate the cause.

WARRENSBURG, Mo. (AP) - A low-flying military jet from a western Missouri Air Force base clipped several power lines, but officials said no injuries were reported.

The Springfield News-Leader reports that the A-10 Thunderbolt military jet from Whiteman Air Force base hit several power lines crossing Stockton Lake on Wednesday afternoon. A-10 Thunderbolts are single-seat, twin-engine attack jets.

Danielle Johnston, spokeswoman for the Air Force Reserve's 442nd Fighter Wing at Whiteman, said the plane hit the power lines near the unincorporated town of Bona, which is about 30 miles northwest of Springfield. The jet clipped the lines where they cross the southeast arm of Stockton Lake.

Crews have been working to mark the area with buoys to keep boaters away from submerged power lines.

   St. Louis police say a bizarre case of road rage left a 43 year old man dead.  

   It began around noon yesterday, when a box truck apparently cut off a Lincoln Navigator on westbound Inerstate 70.  

   Police say the SUV followed the truck to the Union Blvd. exit, ramming the box truck several times.  At the light at Margaretta and Union, the driver of the SUV got out of his vehicle and began hitting the truck with a hammer, striking the driver before jumping onto the truck's hood.  When the truck turned onto Margaretta, the attacking man fell off and was injured.  

   The man was taken to a hospital, where he later died.  Police have not yet released his identity.

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A St. Louis man is accused of intentionally causing a pre-dawn wreck during a two-vehicle southwestern Illinois chase that ended with a teenager dead.

Prosecutors in St. Clair County charged 27-year-old Donald Friese with first-degree murder in the April 29 death of 18-year-old Mercedes Ferrarie-Troisi of Caseyville.

Illinois State Police have said Friese was driving one of two vehicles involved in a chase with each other. Police say both cars went out of control at a curve in Fairmont City and flipped. Ferrarie-Troisi was ejected and died at the scene. Police said Friese fled the scene.

As of Wednesday afternoon Friese was in custody in Jennings, Mo., on unrelated federal charges.

Bail on the murder count is set at $1 million.

It's not immediately clear if Friese has an attorney.

An accident has the intersection of Brentwood and Maryland in downtown Clayton shutdown.

It appears that a teenage driver ran a red light and was t-boned by a Mercedes. The teen's SUV flipped over and several bystanders pulled the boy from the car.

KTRS News spoke to one man who was involved in accident and he shared his thoughts as he saw the accident unfold. "You know people say it's all in slow motion. What was running through my head, was I was actually trying to put my car in reverse", he said. "I was just about managed to do it when he hit me."

No word on any injuries as a result of that accident, but police are on the scene and directing traffic away from the intersection.
