New jersey... one person was shot today inside a municipal building in Bordentown. Police received a call saying there was a person with a gunshot wound, but there's no word if someone shot the victim or if it was self-inflicted. The victim was taken to a hospital in nearby Trenton, but as of early Tuesday evening, details were still very sketchy...

Indiana... a train collides with a truck hauling pineapples in Indianapolis this morning, causing a big mess. The accident happened around 10 AM near a busy intersection. The truck driver says he tried to make a left turn but he got stuck on the tracks as the crossing arm lowered, so he got out. The train then smashed into the truck, sending the pineapples flying all over the place. Luckily, no one was hurt in the accident...

California... a herd of goats brought drivers to a halt outside of Oakland. About 50 goats stumbled onto a highway during rush hour, causing a traffic jam. It took almost an hour for police to get there and clear the goats from the road. They were being used to remove brush along the highway. And with that, we have rounded up another USA Update.
