    Two men were killed and five other people were injured early Sunday after multiple vehicles crashed into a fallen tree on southbound Highway 101 between Gilroy and Hollister, according to the California Highway Patrol. The CHP was alerted of a crash with possible injuries around 3:30 a.m. Sunday morning at Cannon Road on Highway 101. Investigating officers found that a large eucalyptus tree fell on top of a Toyota in the number 2 lane of the highway, leaving the driver and two passengers with moderate to major injuries. After the tree came to rest on top of the Toyota, blocking all highway lanes, a GMC traveling in the No. 1 lane hit the tree. Shortly after that, a BMW struck the tree from the No. 1 lane, causing major damage to the vehicle.

    An intentionally set fire is under investigation more than a week later after a homeowner noticed that a fence outside the residence had been scorched in Maryland, the fire marshal announced. An alert was issued by the Maryland State Fire Marshal on Monday, Sept. 12 in the 7900 block of Barclay Place in Charles County after a homeowner alerted officials to a fire that torched a gate leading into a White Plains yard. The fire was reportedly set in the afternoon of Saturday, Sept. 3, but it took the homeowner several days to report it to officials. In total, the intentional fire caused approximately $500 in damage, according to the fire marshal, and the preliminary cause was deemed “incendiary.” “The intentionally set fire caused damage to the exterior wooden fence gate,” officials said. "The damage was discovered by the homeowner several days after the incident occurred."  Anyone with any information regarding the incident has been asked to contact the Office of the State Fire Marshal’s Southern Regional Office by calling (443) 550-6834.
    Fourth of July festivities are always fun, but when not handled properly they can be extremely dangerous.  That was the reality for several people who were displaced after a 3-alarm fire was potentially ignited by leftover sparklers in Dracut, State Fire Marshal Peter J. Ostroskey said.  Firefighters responded to the fire in the area of 362 Arlington Street around 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 5, Ostroskey said. Upon arrival, crews found heavy smoke and fire coming from the single-family home.  After extinguishing the flames, investigators determined the fire started at the left rear of the house where sparklers were disposed of in several trash bins, Ostroskey said. Thankfully, all nine occupants were able to get out of the house safely.  “I want to remind the community that people are hurt and property is damaged by illegal fireworks every year in Massachusetts," said Dracut Fire Chief Richard E. Patterson. "This includes sparklers, which burn at temperatures over 1,800 degrees. They can remain hot enough to ignite debris even after they go out. Please, for your family’s safety, leave fireworks to the professionals.” More...
    SIDON, Lebanon (AP) — An explosion ripped through a building in southern Lebanon early on Tuesday, killing one person and wounding seven, a Lebanese security official said. The blast in the town of Banaafoul, near the port city of Sidon, demolished the two-floor building that had served as a municipality building and a scout center for the Shiite Amal movement. According to the security official, the dead person was the son of the town’s mayor. It was not immediately clear what triggered the blast, which also caused material damage to nearby buildings and cars. The official said the explosion may have been caused by diesel fuel stored inside the building. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to give official statements. Other unconfirmed reports said the building contained a weapons cache. Army personnel sealed off the building as they searched through the rubble for clues and casualties. Late last year, arms stored for the Palestinian Hamas group exploded in a building in a Palestinian refugee camp in the south Lebanon port city...

    By: KDKA-TV News Staff PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Freezing water that expanded in part of the Saw Mill Run Boulevard Bridge’s support structure likely led to the shift that shut it down last week, the Port Authority announced. Engineers and consultants determined water infiltrated the concrete and expanded when temperatures plummeted, causing the bridge to shift several inches. The bridge is stable but will stay closed for several weeks until crews can make repairs.

    Modern humans eventually took over Europe after several failed attempts to settle in the continent, according to scientists, but doubts remain over what caused their eventual success. A group of researchers made the discovery while they were studying the disappearance of Homo sapiens from Africa tens of thousands of years ago. Remains of our ancestors dating back 40,000 to 50,000 years have been found in Bulgaria, Romania and the Czech Republic recently. But analysis of these bones produced genetic profiles that do not match those of modern Europeans. Professor Chris Stringer of the Natural History Museum, London, told the Guardian: 'These early settlements appear to have been created by groups of early modern humans who did not survive to pass on their genes. 'They are our species' lost lineages. 'The crucial point is that the demise of these early modern human settlers meant Neanderthals still occupied Europe for a further few thousand years before Homo sapiens eventually took over the continent.' Reconstruction of an early (between 37,000 and 42,000 years old) European Homo sapiens based on bones found in the...
    HOUSTON (AP) — Officials in Texas say at least eight people are dead and several others injured in a crowd surge at the Astroworld Festival. The surge broke out just after 9 p.m. Friday while rapper Travis Scott was performing, Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña told reporters at a news conference. “The crowd began to compress towards the front of the stage, and that caused some panic, and it started causing some injuries,” the fire chief said. “People began to fall out, become unconscious, and it created additional panic.” The show was called off shortly after several people began suffering injuries. Officials transported 17 people to the hospital, including 11 who were in cardiac arrest, Peña said. Many people were also treated at the scene at NRG Park, where a field hospital had been set up. Approximately 50,000 people were in attendance at the festival, Peña said. The fire chief added that officials did not immediately know the causes of death for the eight people who died. A medical examiner would investigate. The deceased had not been identified as of...
    Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images The ties to Donald Trump once ran deep through the New England Patriots, with the former president having a well-known friendship with owner Robert Kraft, head coach Bill Belichick and ex-quarterback Tom Brady. In 2015, reporters spotted a MAGA hat in Brady’s locker. The next year, Trump read a letter of support from Belichick at a campaign rally. According to a new book from ESPN senior writer Seth Wickersham, several Patriots players turned on Belichick over his Trump support. Wickersham’s It’s Better to Be Feared, is set to be published next month, a book that details the New England Patriots Dynasty. The ESPN preview states current Miami Dolphins coach and former Patriots assistant Brian Flores noted players were upset with Belichick and encouraged him to address the team over his support for Trump. Belichick did, but the meeting didn’t go over well. “I don’t think he’s an intolerant coach. He isn’t a bad guy. Bill just f—ed up and justified it in a way that he would never accept from a player,” an unnamed player...

    Los Angeles County authorities announced Wednesday that golfing legend Tiger Woods was traveling about 60 kilometers per hour above the speed limit when he crashed his vehicle and was seriously injured in February. Los Angeles County Sheriff Alex Villanueva said at a news conference Woods’ car was traveling around 135 kilometers per hour during the Feb. 23 rollover crash. “The primary causal factor for the collision was driving at an unsafe speed for the road conditions and being unable to negotiate the curve,” said Villanueva. The sheriff said the car was excessively fast when Woods struck a tree and that there were no signs of impairment and that Woods was wearing a seatbelt.  Villanueva added Woods was not cited for speeding and no criminal charges will be filed against him. Woods, 45, had to be extracted from his SUV after hitting the median strip and rolling several times before landing on the opposite side of the road. Woods underwent several surgeries on his right leg and is now in Florida recovering, according to his Twitter account.

    LONDONDERRY, N.H. — The driver of a box truck that allegedly dislodged snow and ice on Route 102 in Londonderry, New Hampshire, seriously injuring a 22-year-old, turned himself in to Londonderry police Wednesday. On December 9, 22-year-old Michael Conry was rushed to the hospital after a chunk of ice flew off a box truck and slammed through the driver’s windshield. He suffered serious injuries and had several surgeries to remove pieces of glass from both of his eyes. The alleged driver of the truck, Richard Leiter, 60, of Derry, New Hampshire, will face several charges, including vehicular assault, reckless conduct and negligent driving. Leiter was released on personal recognizance bail and will be arraigned in Derry District Court in February. New Hampshire has Jessica’s Law, which requires drivers to remove snow and ice from their vehicles before driving them on a public way. “Please take two minutes to brush off your car or truck. It could literally save a life, and it almost took mine,” Conry said in a prepared statement.
