LAPD officer hurt in Northridge 4-car crash | abc7.com
(KABC Photo) Tags: Report a typo By Francine Rios NORTHRIDGE, LOS ANGELES (KABC) — An LAPD officer was transported to the hospital in fair condition after a collision in Northridge on Sunday. According to LAPD Capt. Charles Phillip Hearn with the Topanga Division, a female officer was responding to a call around 4:30 p.m. when her cruiser was hit at the intersection of Parthenia Street and Tampa Avenue. The car that hit the cruiser spun out and hit a truck head-on, causing the truck to back up into another car. A total of four cars were involved in the crash, including the police car, Hearn said. It is unclear what kind of injuries the officer had, but Hearn said she is in a lot of pain. Two other people, including a 6-year-old girl, were also transported with minor injuries.

Found: Army veteran’s dog, lost after car accident, has been found – Seattle Dogs | Examiner.com
Sadly, there was a serious accident at Causeway Blvd. and U.S. 41 on April 17, 2014, when Macner, who has a right above-the-knee amputation, accidentally pressed the gas instead of the brake. His amputation was the result of what has been described as health complications after his military service ended. The metal platforms used to transform a cars pedals for amputees are actually quite easy to confuse and one can see how the accident occurred. Macner was taken to the hospital with a broken collarbone and lacerations, but Nina, terrified, climbed out the passenger side window and ran away. Over Easter weekend, the call went out for dog lovers nationwide to keep an eye out for the sweet-faced shepherd mix. Nina has a microchip, making it possible to positively identify her, but her fear after the accident most likely kept her away from people. Not just dozens but hundreds, even thousands, of print and television media pieces spread like wildfire, and the hunt for Nina was on. Luke Macner lost his cell phone in the crash and his car was totaled, but the loss did not stop there. He also suffered damage to his prosthetic leg, wheelchair, and, of course, he lost his new best friend. Nina was meant to serve as his new wheelchair service dog, and Macner tearfully told news crews Im lost without [her]. And so it was cause for celebration when an HSTB representative informed this author that Nina appears to have been found.

One-car accident kills one on 635 | fox4kc.com
One man in his sixties died early Tuesday morning in a one-car accident along 635 and K-5 in Kansas City, Kan. The crash happened around 2:30 Tuesday morning in the southbound lanes. There were two people in the small compact car when the driver crossed over the highway, rolled the vehicle and ended up on a grassy hill. Roll over accidents are immensely survivable, as long as you got your seatbelt on, said an officer with the Kansas Highway Patrol. Its the only little thing we can do to keep us safe when we make a mistake like that. The driver was not wearing a seatbelt. He died at scene. A male passenger suffered non-life threatening injuries. He called authorities to report the accident. The Kansas Highway Patrol said speed may have been a factor.
