Man, 90, crashes car in funeral procession
BIRDSBORO, Pa. -- A car in a funeral procession entering a cemetery in Exeter Township, Berks County, careened out of control and struck a minivan in the procession, and nine people were injured in the crash, police said. Howard L. Luckenbill, 90, the driver of the car; his wife, Laura Luckenbill, 91; and six people who were in the van were taken to Reading Hospital with unspecified injuries, police said. Lisa O'Hara, 37, a family service counselor in a nearby office, said she saw Luckenbill's car collide with the van and ran to help. "He [Luckenbill] said, 'I bought new shoes for the funeral and I thought I was hitting the brake, but I was hitting the gas,'" O'Hara said.
Drug dogs mistakenly trained to find talcum
CANBERRA, Australia -- When police sniffer dogs couldn't trace drugs, the Australian state police force soon discovered the reason: the cocaine sample used to train them was talcum powder. Seven dogs that had worked on drug searches over the past three months will need to be retrained, Victoria police assistant commissioner Paul Evans said Friday. Evans said police did not believe cocaine had been stolen and blamed an administrative error for the mix-up.
