Police: Fog a factor in deadly chain-reaction crash on Oregon highway
At least one person was killed in the chain-reaction crash on Interstate 5 that involved over 60 vehicles during morning rush-hour, authorities said.
Fog was a factor, but the main cause was people that weren't smart enough to drive according to the prevailing conditions.


Edit- Gary beat me to it.

Travelers to Grímsfjall need to check that a quite large crack has opened in the middle of the road on the east way up to Fjall, between driving points that are named A1 and A2.
This is not a small crack but a corpse that eats cars lightly. It would be advisable to drive a little south of the traditional route up from the dump.

There is a tiny bit of good news - everyone got off uninjured.
That's one heck of a mess to clear up.

"This issue is under investigation, both on the DINAC side and on the side of the airline," said Félix Kanasawa, the head of Paraguay's National Directorate of Civil Aeronautics (DINAC).

A bit of background and further information on this flight.

The cabin on that flight was a very uncomfortable and disturbing place to be, but the cockpit must have been really scary. Well done to the flight crew on getting that aircraft onto the ground.

Be on the outlook for flying lounges.

Police investigating car crushed by lounge in Ultimo, Sydney.

You don't know where they'll land.

Cheers.

Not exactly transport safety, but more one Mr. Jobs Worth who should be promoted to a new level, such as P60......

Yet another example of why morons and motorised vehicles aren't a good combination.

Tyre marks indicate it crossed several verges and a side street before smashing through Mr Olson's fence and hedge.
It then ploughed through his verandah and stairs, crashing into his parked four-wheel-drive and damaging the front wall of a neighbour's property.
The vehicle was eventually wedged on top of Mr Olson's Toyota LandCruiser and a neighour's car.

Would be interesting to find out if it was drink driving and/or drugs or just remote chance just moronic driving.

Given the time of day I suspect D&A could well be involved, along with a surplus of testosterone.....

Well that was a blast. :-O

Pieces of road train that exploded in WA found almost a kilometre from crater.

Luckily no one was hurt. ;-)

UPDATES: Two planes collide in mid-air at Dallas air show

At around 1:20pm this afternoon, a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and a Bell P-63 Kingcobra collided and crashed at the Wings Over Dallas Airshow at Dallas Executive Airport.

Dallas Fire Rescue and Dallas Police Department were first to arrive on the scene. One of the planes erupted in flames after crashing into the ground. An ARFF truck from the airport suppressed the flames.

All lanes of Highway 67 have been closed due to this incident.

The NTSB and FAA are working to determine how many people were on board each aircraft.

According to their website, the Wings Over Dallas Airshow is the largest WWII airshow in North Texas.

Updates will be provided here once released by officials.

Following on to that.

‘Horrible to witness’: US air show ends in disaster as two planes collide.

But no matter how many times I watch the footage it all looks wrong to me.
