USA Update

Rick Lord A police pursuit leads to a stand-off in California, a really rough field trip for students in Missouri, and good form in Illinois on this USA Update

California... a stand-off after a high-speed chase through several freeways and streets near downtown Los Angeles. Officers began following the car this morning because the driver was a burglary suspect. The pursuit escalated in the Boyle Heights area and downtown L.A., before the people in the car got out and ran into a building, which was surrounded by officers. No word on any resolution as of early Wednesday night...

Missouri... an after-school bus trip turns into a nightmare after the vehicle overturns, sending more than 20 students to the hospital. Eleven of the students were hurt badly enough that they had to be taken by helicopter or ambulance. No word on the cause of the crash, but police say the bus had just passed inspection a few weeks ago...

Illinois... a bowler is trying to set another backward record. Andrew Cohen is the world record holder in backwards bowling, scoring a 280. The Rockford native has spent his spare time on the lanes since he was ten years old, perfecting a skill that most people find to be a challenge head-on. Cohen's goal is to become the first backward bowler to roll a perfect 300. And with that, we can spare no more time on this USA Update.
