Question of the Day
Sheriff: Man thought to be quarry shooter dead
SUNNYVALE | Authorities say three Northern California sheriff’s deputies fatally shot a man believed to be the suspect in a deadly quarry shooting.
Sheriff Smith says three deputies were on routine patrol in a Sunnyvale neighborhood Thursday morning when they encountered a man crouched behind a vehicle in the driveway of a home. He matched Allman’s description.
Sheriff Smith says the deputies opened fire after the man displayed a handgun.
The fatal confrontation happened in the same neighborhood that authorities had scoured a day earlier in search of Allman. He’s accused of opening fire during an early-morning meeting at Permanente Quarry in Cupertino, killing three co-workers and wounding six.
CDC: Kids’ ER concussion visits up 60% over decade
ATLANTA | The number of athletic children going to hospitals with concussions is up 60 percent in the past decade, a finding that is likely due to parents and coaches being more careful about getting head injuries treated, according to a new federal study.
Bicycling and football were the leading reasons for the kids’ brain injuries, but health officials said that could be at least partly related to the popularity of those activities. For example, it’s possible many more kids bike, so a larger number of bike-related injuries would be expected.
Officials: Bus crash injures more than 30
GIBBON | A Denver-bound bus rammed into an overturned semitrailer in central Nebraska early Thursday, injuring dozens of people including five who were hospitalized.
The Nebraska State Patrol said 41 people, including the bus and semi drivers, were taken to a hospital in Kearney, about 180 miles west of Omaha, after the accident on Interstate 80 around 2 a.m.
