Six people, including four children are being treated for injuries at a Jefferson County hospital after a school bus accident west of Herculanium.
The Missouri Highway Patrol reports the accident happened on Highway Z at Persimmon Point. Police say its not yet known what caused the bus to roll off the road and into a ditch.
The bus driver, an aide and four students were taken to Mercy Hospital Jefferson in Festus with what police are calling minor injuries.
The bus had been transporting children home from the Maperville State School. The school serves severely disabled children.
It looks like the search for a missing Jefferson County man is over after a body was found near Barnhart Monday afternoon.
Sheriff Glenn Boyer says the body of a white man was discovered at about 4:30 p.m. in a drainage ditch near Catlin Drive and Old State Road M. Jefferson County investigators aren't releasing the identity of the man, but family members say it is Dale Leija.
The 36 year old had last been seen leaving a Barnhart convenience store on March 9th.
Police say there are no obvious signs of foul play, but the investigation is ongoing.
Funeral arrangements are set for a former Missouri state representative from Crystal City who died over the weekend. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Ron Casey died early Sunday morning at the age of 61.
Casey had suffered a head wound the week before when he fell on a concrete floor at his brother's home.
Casey represented part of Jefferson County for 12 years in the state House.
Visitation will be held at the Second Baptist Church in Festus on Tuesday from 2-to-8 p.m. Funeral services will also be at the church at 10 a.m. Wednesday.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Department will soon have an additional $22,000 to find and stop drunken drivers.
The county council agreed to accept $22,000 from the state. The Post-Dispatch reports the county only took the money on the condition that the funds be used for DUI checkpoints and not safety checkpoints. County residents argued earlier this year that safety checkpoints, which include checks for seat belt usage, violated their civil rights. The backlash was so great that the county rejected a grant in October that would have funded DUI and safety checkpoints.
The grant money will be split between covering the cost of officer overtime to man the checkpoints and equipment--such as road flares and safety vests.
