    Switching Off Red Light Cameras Likely Cost Lives, IIHS Says

    (WASHINGTON) — The sudden flash of a red light camera in the rear-view mirror can certainly put a damper on a driver’s day. But those pesky cameras might have saved lives, a non-profit says. Cities that switched off their red light cameras between 2010 and 2014 saw a 30 percent increase in the number of fatal red-light-running crashes, a new Insurance Institute for Highway Safety study says. Meanwhile, cities that turned cameras on saw 21 percent fewer fatal red-light-running crashes than they would have otherwise, the study says. Red light cams affect other types of dangerous driving behavior, too: Cities […]

    No Winners in Wednesday's Powerball Drawing, Jackpot Now $478 Million

    (NEW YORK) —The jackpot for Wednesday’s Powerball drawing was a whopping $422 million — but there were no winners, a California Lottery spokesperson confirmed to ABC News early Thursday morning. Now, the jackpot has increased to an estimated $478 million. The next drawing is Saturday. The jackpot has steadily been increasing, thanks to nearly three months without a winner of the big prize. The numbers drawn Wednesday were 10, 47, 50, 65, and 68. The Powerball is 24. The big Powerball prize comes less than three weeks after a player in Indiana won a $536 million Mega Millions jackpot.

    Cocaine Found Stashed in Luggage Compartments of Two JetBlue Planes

    (LAKE CITY, Fla.) — About 3 kilos of cocaine were discovered on two JetBlue planes during routine maintenance of the aircraft in Lake City, Florida, a Columbia County Sheriff’s Office spokesman, Murray Smith, tells ABC News. A maintenance worker discovered 1 kilo tucked behind some insulation inside a panel in the luggage compartment of one plane on July 20, Smith said. The panel’s covering was screwed in, so someone would have had to unscrew it to stash the drugs inside the compartment, a part of the plane to which passengers don’t normally have access. “This was not a hatch you […]
