A GoJet Airlines CRJ-700, N367CA, equipped with two General Electric (GE) CF34-8C5B1 turbofan engines, experienced an uncontained No. 1 (left) engine failure during cruise at FL340. The crew reported hearing a loud noise from the back of the airplane immediately followed by a No. 1 engine roll back and flame out. The crew declared an emergency, diverted to Lambert-St. Louis International Airport (STL), and made an uneventful single engine landing.
The flight was a regularly scheduled flight from Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, Kentucky, USA to Denver International Airport, Colorado. There were no reported injuries to the passengers or crew.

Probable Cause and Findings:
The probable cause of the uncontained No. 1 (left) engine failure was a separated high pressure turbine 2nd stage blade that failed due to a fatigue crack that originated below the blade platform from an area of corrosion.
