New York... A tour bus crashes in midtown Manhattan. It happened during this morning's rush hour when the bus hit a scaffolding on West 41st and 10th Avenue. The bus driver said he was trying to avoid a pothole. There were passengers on board the bus at the time, but only one person sustained minor injuries...

Texas... a severe rain storm has caused all kinds of problems. Several passengers trapped inside their vehicles had to be rescued, as did a horse. Numerous roads are flooded and power is out for thousands in the northern part of the state. A flash flood watch is still in effect until tomorrow afternoon...

California... the 75th season of thoroughbred racing at Del Mar began today with the annual hat contest, an opening day fixture that features categories like best racing theme, funniest, and most glamorous. Top prize in each category is $300, plus a $100 gift certificate from a nearby salon. The grand prize winner gets a two-night stay at the Grand Del Mar Hotel and dinner for two, valued at more than $1,000. Race season runs through September 3rd. And that's a photo finish on this USA Update.
