Florida... this story may make you lose your appetite. A Sarasota woman claims she found a bird skull in her bag of spinach. She initially thought the frozen chunk was some sort of stem and placed it aside in her sink, but eventually saw what it really was. The grocery store, Publix, says it is investigating. They offered her a refund, which she declined. She says she isn't mad, but hopes that her complaint is taken seriously...

Utah... two trains collide this morning near the mouth of Weber Canyon, causing one to derail and causing significant damage to the other. Three people have minor injuries. One of the train cars spilled corn down an embankment and an engine leaked diesel fuel. Crews are still on the scene cleaning up but say the spill is not a threat to the Weber River ...

Nevada... the star today at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas was Audi's new self-driving car. The vehicle's digital navigator keeps it on course. The system comes complete with cameras, lasers, positioning sensors and locators, all working together to help the car's computer process information, and keep you on track to your destination. And with that, our trip is over on this USA Update.
