Pennsylvania... a freight train derails and flies into a building. Twenty-one cars carrying crude oil left the tracks early this morning. Luckil, no injuries reported, and amazingly no word of any significant leaks. HazMat crews were dispatched as a precaution, and people evacuated the building. The cause of the derailment is under investigation...

Oregon... boulders tumble onto an Interstate, causing a driver to veer off the road. Fortunately, the man wasn't injured but debris did hit his car. Both eastbound lanes and one westbound lane of I-84 were shutdown. State police and local emergency responders were still clearing the scene overnight and warning drivers of delays...

Arizona... it's a week full of talk that's way out there. A UFO conference is underway at the Ft. McDowell casino just outside of Scottsdale. On the agenda, a panel discussion on UFO's, UFO abductions, and the search for alien life. The convention runs through Sunday. And with that, we've identified everything on this USA Update.
