ST. LOUIS, MO -- Emergency vehicles surrounded a plane on the tarmac at Lambert International Airport Tuesday night after two flight attendants and a passenger were injured.
 
According to officials, US Airways flight 1667 was flying from Charlotte to St. Louis when, about 70 miles north of Nashville, the plane experienced significant turbulence.
