Two dead after accident near St. Louis

Sunday, 16 June 2013 07:28 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Police say two people have died in a collision involving a tractor-trailer and an SUV just outside the St. Louis city limits.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that after the collision early Saturday, the tractor-trailer continued southbound driving through two power poles, hitting a fence and a pontoon boat. The trailer wound up on its side, spilling its contents of beer bottles and cans across the road.

The drivers of both vehicles were killed. The names of the victims haven't been released.

Police also said a section of the roadway would be closed while authorities investigated the cause of the accident and debris was removed from the scene.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Numerous messages are urging Missouri Governor Jay Nixon to sign legislation that would require doctors be in the room for the initial dose of a drug used in medical abortions.

The Republican-led Legislature approved the legislation. Nixon, a Democrat, has about a month to sign or veto the bill. Otherwise, it will take effect without his signature.

Many people are seeking to influence Nixon's decision. Supporters of the legislation say it would prevent "telemedicine" abortions and is needed to protect women's health and safety.

Opponents say the process is safe, and the legislation seems to be more of an attempt to restrict availability of abortion services.

Abortion drug bill is HB400.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Governor Jay Nixon is leading a Missouri delegation to the Paris Air Show.

The delegation left Friday, and will head from Paris to the United Kingdom, then Belgium and return to Missouri on June 22nd.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 14 Missouri companies and institutions are in the Missouri delegation to show, which is a massive aerospace trade exhibition.

Most of the companies joining Nixon on the trip are in the aviation business, including Boeing Co. and Clayton-based Sabreliner. They're looking for new customers overseas.

State officials say no taxpayer funds are being used on the trip. Delegation members are paying their own way. Travel costs for Nixon and his wife are covered by the Hawthorne Foundation, an economic development nonprofit group funded by private donations.
