ST. LOUIS (AP) - Public records show a New Jersey man behind the wheel of a van that overturned on an Illinois freeway, killing five passengers, had his driving privileges suspended last year for administrative reasons.

Fayette County State's Attorney Joshua Morrison says 45-year-old Malcolm Purnell was ticketed after Monday's wreck on Interstate 70 east of St. Louis for improper lane usage and driving with a suspended license.

Illinois State Police have refused to publicly identify the driver, but The Associated Press obtained the citation against Purnell.

Motor vehicle records show Purnell lost his license after failing to resolve insurance issues. His license also was suspended briefly in 2002 after falling behind on child support. The records show no actual driving-related violations over the past decade.

Purnell hasn't replied to AP interview requests.

WARRENSBURG, Mo. (AP) - A low-flying military jet from a western Missouri Air Force base clipped several power lines, but officials said no injuries were reported.

The Springfield News-Leader reports that the A-10 Thunderbolt military jet from Whiteman Air Force base hit several power lines crossing Stockton Lake on Wednesday afternoon. A-10 Thunderbolts are single-seat, twin-engine attack jets.

Danielle Johnston, spokeswoman for the Air Force Reserve's 442nd Fighter Wing at Whiteman, said the plane hit the power lines near the unincorporated town of Bona, which is about 30 miles northwest of Springfield. The jet clipped the lines where they cross the southeast arm of Stockton Lake.

Crews have been working to mark the area with buoys to keep boaters away from submerged power lines.
