Question of the Day
The semi driver was able to get out of the truck before the crash on Pine Street, just south of Newhall Avenue in Old Town Newhall.
Three of the train’s 220 passengers had minor injuries and were treated at a hospital, Deputy Dubin said. No one else was hurt. The train did not derail but remained at the scene.
A Metrolink passenger told KHTS-AM in Santa Clarita that he didn’t feel an impact, but the effect was as if the train’s driver suddenly slammed on the brakes.
“It was just kind of a hard stop,” the passenger said.
Commercial supply rocket launch successful, on way to Space Station
CAPE CANAVERAL — A commercial supply ship is on its way to the International Space Station.
The California-based SpaceX launched its unmanned Falcon rocket from Cape Canaveral on Sunday night. Aboard the rocket was a Dragon capsule holding 1,000 pounds of cargo, including chocolate-vanilla swirl ice cream for the three station residents.
This is the first Dragon launch under a $1.6 billion contract between SpaceX and NASA. The contract calls for 12 resupply missions.
A Dragon flew to the space station in May, but it was a test, so nothing vital was aboard. The newest Dragon is hauling key experiments and other vital gear.
Dragon will reach the orbiting lab Wednesday. It will remain docked for nearly three weeks before returning to Earth with an even bigger load.

National Border Patrol Council President George McCubbin said Sunday that the two sets of agents approached an area where a sensor had been activated. He says they arrived from different directions early Tuesday when Agent Nicholas Ivie opened fire.
