2 people struck and killed on I-70; Eastbound lanes closed

Wednesday, 02 October 2013 00:09 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Authorities continue to investigate two separate incidents in north St. Louis in which pedestrians were struck and killed by vehicles.

 

   The first happened just before 10 p.m. Tuesday when a person was struck on eastbound Interstate 70 near Salisbury Street. Lanes in both directions were closed for several hours after the accident. Police say the driver who struck the pedestrian was found. It wasn't clear if the driver would face charges.

 

   In the second case, a man was struck by two cars as he was crossing Natural Bridge Avenue near Kingshighway just before midnight Tuesday. The drivers stopped and cooperated with authorities.

 

   Names of the victims have not been released.

Online health insurance exchanges now open

Tuesday, 01 October 2013 03:36 Published in Health & Fitness

   The online health insurance exchanges are now open in both Missouri and Illinois.  The online marketplace is a key component of the federal health care law.  

   Illinois officials have set up their own marketplace at GetCoveredIllinois.gov.  

   Missouri voters chose to bar their government from setting up its own marketplace.  So the federal government is running the exchange for Missouri residents at Healthcare.gov.

   Consumers have until December 15th to sign up if they want coverage to start on January 1, but enrollment is open until March 31.  

 

   A death penalty case in St. Charles County is the first in more than a decade.  

   Sixty-three year old Terry Culberson is accused of shooting his ex-girlfriend, 55 year old Dorothy Hall in the face five times.  Her body was found inside Culberson's O'Fallon, Missouri mobile home on February 5, 2013.  

   St. Charles County Prosecutor Tim Lohmar says the brutality of the murder was a factor in deciding to ask for the death penalty. "St. Charles County has not requested a death penalty since 2002, so it's a very unique situation," he said.  

   Lohmar says Culberson's past conviction for assault with the intent to kill was also a factor.  A trial date has not yet been set.
