More information about an accident in North St. Louis County.

Three kids, aged 5, 17, and 18, were walking home from school, when the driver of an SUV hit three. Police say the driver tried to flee the scene, but flipped the SUV and ran into a home. The driver is in police custody.

The three victims were all taken to the hospital with serious injuries. 

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Illinois House has approved legislation allowing same-sex couples to marry in the state.

The vote 61-54 vote sends the measure back to the Senate for minor changes to a version it approved on Valentine's Day. Gov. Pat Quinn says he'll sign it.

Fourteen states plus Washington D.C., allow same-sex marriage. Most recently, New Jersey, Minnesota and Rhode Island have allowed it.

The historic vote in Illinois came after months of arduous lobbying by gay-rights advocates, but the bill was never called for a House vote earlier this year because the sponsor said there weren't enough votes. Proponents say momentum had been building, especially as the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a provision of the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

Opponents say marriage should remain between a man and woman.

Missouri father headed to prison for hitting son with bat

Tuesday, 05 November 2013 15:41 Published in Local News

FORISTELL, Mo. (AP) - An eastern Missouri man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for attacking his 11-year-old son with a baseball bat.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the sentence for 46-year-old Mark Alan Calloni of Foristell follows his plea of no contest to child abuse charges filed in July.

Police say Calloni struck the child several times for unknown reasons, using a wooden baseball bat. He then tackled the boy and pinned him to the ground. The child broke free and ran to a neighbor's house, where he called police.

The boy did not suffer any serious injuries.

In 2005, Calloni pleaded guilty to domestic assault, endangering the welfare of a child and felonious restraint. He was sentenced to five years of probation in that case.
