SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Serving Illinois prisoners two meals a day instead of three was supposed to save the state money.

But Corrections Department officials told lawmakers this week it will cost $200,000 per prison to implement the "brunch" program.

Corrections spokesman Tom Shaer now says the main goal is to reduce inmate movement - a cost savings - and avoid serving breakfast in dark morning hours.

Prisons in Robinson and Galesburg have begun the program and the Mount Sterling lockup will follow soon. Shaer says the rest of the two dozen state prisons could follow after Jan. 1.

Prison director S.A. "Tony" Godinez said in early 2012 it would save $2 million in the following year. Shaer says there might be savings down the line but security is the top concern.

Around 5:30 Friday morning, a cargo van crashed into a Chevy Impala on Interstate 55 near Litchfield, Illinois. Investigators say it appears the Chevy was either stopped or moving very slowly when the accident occurred. A woman sitting in the front seat of the car was killed and two kids in the back seat of the car died as well. Two other children were taken to Cardinal Glennon Hospital in St. Louis.

The driver of the van was not injured.

Law enforcement officials are reminding fans and visitors to St. Louis to secure any valuables in their car by placing them out of sight and locking their doors.  

St. Louis police and the Cardinals are committed to ensuring a safe 2013 World Series experience, but they will need an assist from the public.

The Redbirds and Boston Red Sox play Games 3, 4 and 5 on Saturday, Sunday and Monday at Busch Stadium.  

Officers will patrol in both uniform and undercover capacities -- in both marked and unmarked vehicles.  They will also have more foot and mounted patrols. 

Police are encouraging anyone who sees suspicious activity to alert a nearby officer or call 911.

There will be a pre-game pep rally at Ballpark Village beginning at 3:30 each afternoon and the gates to the stadium will open at 4:30 each day.
