   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.

Gas leak closes Fenton intersection

   No evacuations are expected due to a gas leak in Fenton.  

   Police tell Fox 2 News that city workers were repairing a water main at Ferry and Main Streets when they accidentally struck a gas line, rupturing it.  The intersection is closed while utility crews work to repair the line.

   Police say gas is escaping, but it's dissipating in the air.

Stan Span not easing bridge traffic as expected

Monday, 14 April 2014 14:50 Published in Local News

   Fewer drivers than expected are using a new Mississippi River bridge downtown.  

   The new Stan Musial Veterans Memorial Bridge carries Interstate 70 over the river between Illinois and Missouri.  It had been projected to reduce traffic by as much as 50 percent of the Eads and Martin Luther King Bridges, and by 20 percent on the Poplar Street Bridge.

   But that hasn't happened.  KMOV-TV reports that data shows that since the Stan Span opened in February, the Eads Bridge has seen a decline of about 25 percent, and King Bridge traffic has dropped about 40 percent, but traffic on the Poplar is down only 7 percent.  

   Transportation officials say part of the issue is that traffic is up about 7 percent overall on all of the downtown bridges.
