An early morning crash near Fenton has claimed the life of a driver. It happened just before 1 a.m. at Valley Park Road and Ceasar Drive but it's impact was felt in a much wider area.  St. Louis County Police got the call around 12:48 a.m. When they arrived, they found the male driver. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver hit a power pole which knocked out power to over 1,500 customers. Ameren has since restored power to most of those customers.
