Crews reopen I-55 after major accident

Thursday, 22 August 2013 11:30 Published in Local News

Crews have just reopened northbound I-55 south of downtown St. Louis after a major accident this morning had the highway shutdown.

Just before 11 AM, two vehicles were overturned in an accident. The crash was near the Potomac exit. Five people, four adults and one child, were taken to the hospital.

Still no word on what caused the accident.

Federal investigators are turning up the heat as they look into a subcontract issued to a company owned by a member of the Police Board. 

County police say they have received a federal subpoena for all information relating to the contract. Chief Tim Fitch has also reached out to all employees asking that forward any information. The controversy stems from a $3.7 million contract for work on a new crime lab that was given to a company owned by Gregory Sansone.

County Executive Charlie Dooley has denied any conflict of interest and says his county counselor signed off on the decision to make Sanson's company the subcontractor. 

 

A private jet company's plans to move onto Lambert Airport's grounds could create as many as 100 jobs.

Jet Linx plans to operate out of a private terminal and hangar that had been used by the Missouri Air National Guard. The company will pay $1 million to lease the land. Jet Linx officials also plan to invest another $1 million into renovations and will buy $3 million in jet fuel every year. The new jobs will range from construction to pilots.

Airport officials say the partnership has been 2 years in the making.
