Illinois... a commuter train derails in Chicago, injuring about 30 people. Firefighters took passengers off the train on stretchers. The accident happened just before 3AM as the train pulled into O'Hare International Airport. None of the injuries is believed to be life threatening, but the cause is still under investigation...

Georgia... a fatal shooting shuts down parts of I-20 in Atlanta. Police say a woman was standing with the shooter outside of the car along the shoulder of the highway. She was rushed to the hospital in critical condition, but later died. Two westbound lanes of the Interstate were shut down while police began their investigation. So far, no one has been arrested...

California... a sticky situation causing problems on a freeway this afternoon. A big rig carrying about 42,000 gallons of honey turned over in the northbound lanes of the San Gabriel River freeway in the City of Industry. Crews tried to sweep the honey to the side of the road to clear it so traffic could start moving again, but the road was still partially closed for evening rush hour. And that's been a sweet USA Update.
