Report: Several Hurt In Escalator Accident

Several people were injured in an escalator accident after the St. Louis Blues' home opener, according to published reports.

Several media outlets said as many as a dozen people were sent to a hospital for treatment. Video from KMOV-TV showed one man wearing a Blues jersey leaving the Scottrade Center on a stretcher with an apparent leg injury.

A Blues spokesman said the team was investigating the incident. It wasn't clear if any of the injuries were serious.

KMOX-AM said witnesses reported the escalator was full after the game ended when it suddenly sped up and knocked people off balance.
