USA Update

Rick Lord A wild wreck in New York, TIMBER!! in California, and honoring those who serve in Maine on this USA Update

New York... well, this is not good. Nearly two dozen vehicles were involved in a massive pile-up in Yonkers. It happened overnight on the Bronx River Parkway after a mixture of snow and rain fell and then froze. Police say the slippery road conditions definitely contributed to the pile-up. About thirty people sustained minor injuries, but nothing serious. Another round of winter weather is expected to hit the northeast tomorrow...

California... check this out-- a tree along a Los Angeles road comes crashing down on a moving car this afternoon. The tree had been uprooted and blew over in high winds, smashing the car while it was driving down the street. There's no word yet if anyone in that car was hurt, but as you can clearly see, it was a pretty direct hit right across the front windshield...

Maine... an annual week-long tradition has kicked off. The Maine-based non-profit Wreaths Across America has begun its journey to deliver thousands of remembrance wreaths to veterans and fallen soldiers across the nation. Trenton was the first stop for the convoy of trucks, on which drivers put their own mark of raising awareness, with many driving in memory of a loved one. And with that, we say goodbye to this USA Update.
