ZOMBIES! CAR CRASH!! CHAOS!!!

Well, not really.
Quote:
PORTLAND, Ore. -- A car full of people dressed as zombies crashed on Interstate 84 near downtown Portland on Friday, causing initial confusion by people who witnessed the crash.
Police said that in their investigation they learned that the people inside the car were dressed as zombie costumes and they were headed to a party at the time of the crash.

Sgt. Greg Stewart said people who witnessed the crash initially thought the victims' injuries were much more serious, because of the zombie costumes.

While everyone in the car was taken to the hospital, Stewart said crews are investigating the possibility that more people were in the car at the time of the crash but fled the scene on foot.
Italics mine - jeez I hope they didn't get lost and approach any lonely farmhouses for help...?

From here

What on earth could possibly be going on in their lives that a mother, a professional woman, would kill her daughter and herself? This story just boggles me and makes me sad:

Yeah, I didn't know where else to put it.

The weird part to me is why. Drugs? Crazy?

What on earth indeed? They must have a ton of evidence for this as it was ruled a suicide/homicide rapidly.

Taliban Deer?

Quote:
Pennsylvania State Police are trying to piece together the puzzling death of a motorcyclist from Export, Westmoreland County.

According to police reports, 47-year-old William Mark Amos was riding on Route 819 in Salem Township when the deer crossed into his path Friday morning.

The bike collided with the deer about 100 yards south of Ridge Road, police said.

Police said Amos, who was not wearing a helmet, was pronounced dead at the scene.

But police also said that Amos had a gunshot wound to the head and that a gun was recovered at the crash scene.
Most likely he was carrying a gun and it went off in the crash. No helmet, safety off... bad judgment.

That is very strange. What killed him? The gunshot wound or the collision?

If he was carrying a rock, with the safety off, oh... wrong thread.

Man throws dog, assaults daughter
Quote:
A man was so upset the family dog got sprayed by a skunk on Sunday that he took it out on the dog and then his family, Pocono Mountain Regional police said.

James C. Haney, 44, of 1929 Mountain Road in Tunkhannock Township took the dog and threw it off the back deck, and then assaulted his daughter, police said.

Police were dispatched at 9:59 p.m. Sunday on a report that a man, later identified as Haney, was high on drugs, flipping out and destroying the house. When police got there, they found three girls and Christine Haney, 18, who had locked themselves inside a bedroom.

Police found James Haney, but he was uncooperative. An investigation revealed that he had assaulted his daughter Christine and the dog after it had been sprayed by the skunk. Police also found marijuana and paraphernalia in the home.
