OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - An autopsy has revealed that a San Francisco Bay Area transit officer who was shot and killed by a fellow officer died of a single gunshot wound to the chest.
 
   The results of the autopsy on Bay Area Rapid Transit police Sgt. Tom Smith were released Thursday by the Alameda County Sheriff's Office.
 
   Smith was wearing a bulletproof vest, but Sheriff's spokesman J.D. Nelson said the bullet struck an area that was not covered.
 
   The 42-year-old Smith was shot Tuesday while authorities searched a one-bedroom apartment in Dublin for items stolen during an armed holdup at a train station in Oakland.
   Investigators are trying to determine whether the officer's gun discharged accidentally or he mistook Smith for someone else.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri's transportation chief is warning that the state won't have enough money to maintain its roads in a few years.
 
The state's construction budget for roads and bridges has fallen from about $1.3 billion annually five years ago to $685 million this year. Transportation Department Director Dave Nichols said Thursday that the annual road-and-bridge budget is projected to fall to about $325 million in 2017.
 
That's considerably shy of the $485 million annually that Nichols says it takes to maintain the highway system in its current condition.
 
Nichols spoke at a transportation conference in Jefferson City hosted by the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
 
Some of those at the conference are pushing a proposed ballot initiative that would ask voters to impose a 1-cent sales tax for transportation.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the state's highways are the safest they have been in the last 60 years.

 

A Highway Patrol spokesman says traffic fatalities were 754 last year--the total will not be official until February 1.

 

The same Trooper said nearly two-thirds off all deaths involved occupants who were not wearing seat belts.
