ST. LOUIS (AP) - A popular circus performer from St. Louis has been identified as the victim of a fiery accident.
Police on Tuesday said 21-year-old Reginald Moore died in the wreck. Moore lost control of his 2003 Toyota Corolla on Friday afternoon and crashed into a concrete support for a railroad trestle.
A passing motorist stopped and pulled Moore from the car before it completely caught fire, but he had severe head and face injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
The injuries were so severe that it took days for positive identification.
Moore was a juggler and acrobat for Circus Harmony.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Coal producer Arch Coal Inc. said Tuesday it posted a lower-than-expected loss of $128.4 million in the third quarter as lowered expenses helped temper weaker coal prices.
The St. Louis-based company lost 61 cents per share in the July-through-September period. That compares with net income of $45.8 million, or 22 cents per share, a year earlier.
Excluding one-time items, Arch said it lost $1.8 million, or a penny per share. That's down from an adjusted profit of $41.8 million, or 20 cents per share, last year.
Revenue fell 19 percent to $791.3 million from $975.2 million a year ago.
Analysts surveyed by Fact Set expected a loss of 31 cents on sales of $878.3 million.
Arch Coal shares fell 20 cents, or 4.8 percent, to $3.96 in morning trading.
An investigation underway in Franklin County after a St. Louis woman says she was raped by two armed men.
The woman told officers she was driving home to St. Louis from Cuba, when she became lost. When she pulled over to ask for directions, two men--one man armed with a knife, the other with a gun--approached her car. The men proceeded to sexually assault her.
The woman was treated for the assault at a hospital. Police have only a very vague description of the suspects. The woman was not able to tell authorities which direction the men drove off.
