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.

One week after Bobbie Billups disappeared into the Mississippi River, the St. Louis Fire Department found his body.

Billups was fishing under the Merchants Bridge in downtown when he went to get something out of his car. While he was inside the car, it rolled in the river. Witnesses say Billups got out of the car, but he could not swim to the shore and bystanders could not rescue him.

Billups was 54 years old.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - Prominent hotel developer and Missouri philanthropist John Q. Hammons has died. He was 94.

His company says Hammons passed away Sunday at the Springfield nursing home where he'd lived after stepping away from the company he led well into his 80s.

After his first business went bust in the 1940s, Hammons built subdivisions in southwest Missouri before purchasing 10 Holiday Inn franchises with a partner in 1958.

He went on to build 200 hotels nationwide, avoiding big cities in favor of college towns and state capitals. His expansive real estate portfolio included golf courses and convention centers.

Hammons also donated millions to hospitals, colleges and public television. His name graces so many buildings and streets in Springfield that comedian Bob Hope once joked the city should be named "Hammonsville."

On this Memorial Day, we are reminded that St. Louis County is running out of room for grave sites at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery. Officials say the nation's fifth largest cemetery will run out of space for veterans and their spouses by 2025. St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley has expressed support for handing over Sylvan Springs Park to the federal government as part of an expansion. The addition would add about 70 acres to the existing cemetery.
