Oakville, MO – Police officers, school officials and students in south St. Louis County met today to discuss what to do to avoid more fatal car crashes involving young people.
St. Louis County Police Major Tim Fitch says the department will train officers to better educate teens. They're also looking into programs sponsored by other organizations to offer alternatives to dangerous road practices. One idea is to allow teens opportunities to drive on race tracks under controlled conditions.
Washington, DC – The U.S. State Department has reached a $32 million settlement with St. Louis-based Boeing Satellite Systems.
The government had accused Boeing, as well as Hughes Electronics Corporation, of illegally helping China analyze why two of their rocket launches failed. Congressional investigations during the 1990s found China gained valuable missile information from those reviews. China, though, says it needed no help.
