A second teen has died after a car crash Tuesday afternoon.

 

Police say that 15-year-old Darius Clay and 17-year-old Martez Edwards were in a speeding car when the driver lost control and crashed into a tree on Euclid in North St. Louis. Police later learned the car they were in had been stolen. The owner had started the car and gone back inside to allow the vehicle time to warm up.

 

Police say a third passenger left the scene of the accident before emergency crews arrived.

Missouri ending some diesel fuel inspections

Wednesday, 12 February 2014 15:14 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri is curtailing inspections aimed at people who may illegally use farm diesel fuel in their over-the-road vehicles.
 
In response to concerns from lawmakers, acting Revenue Department Director John Mollenkamp said Wednesday that his agency would stop proactively looking for violations of the diesel fuel law and only respond to requests from law enforcement officials.
 
Missouri imposes a 17-cent tax on diesel fuel. But that tax is not charged on diesel used only for farming purposes. To distinguish between the two uses, farm diesel fuel is mixed with a dye.
 
The Revenue Department had been doing random inspections to see whether dyed fuel was being used in vehicles driven on highways.
 
Republican Sen. Mike Parson, a former Polk County sheriff, has called the program an unreasonable search of private property.

Rams announce Gregg Williams as Defensive Coordinator

Wednesday, 12 February 2014 14:20 Published in Sports

It's official, the St. Louis Rams announced Gregg Williams as the team's new defensive coordinator.

 

Head coach Jeff Fisher and Williams have six seasons of experience working together. Fisher hired Williams to be his defensive coordinator in 2012. But, Williams was implicated in the Saints bounty-gate controversy and he was suspended by the NFL.

 

Williams was re-instated last year and served as a consultant for the Tennessee Titans. The two will be reunited again with the Rams for the 2014 season.
