After motorists and construction workers sprang into action last week to free a woman from a burning car after a tractor trailer barreled through several cars on an upstate New York highway, the mayor of the town has released new footage of the crash as a means of trying to identify the heroes who saved the day. A tractor trailer caused a 10-car accident on Route 17 in Binghamton, New York, last Thursday afternoon. 10 people involved in the pileup were taken to local hospitals for non-life threatening injuries, Press Connects reports. Dashcam video uploaded to Facebook by the mayor of the upstate New York town, David Rich, shows the devastating wreck from the perspective of one of the cars involved in the accident.

Weitzel then allegedly crashed the car into several other vehicles, WUSA reports.
Around 6,500 migrants were rescued off the coast of Libya, the Italian coastguard said, in one of its busiest days of life-saving in recent years. A five-day-old baby was among those rescued along with other infants and was airlifted to an Italian hospital, according to Doctors Without Borders (MSF), which took part in operations. "The command centre coordinated 40 rescue operations" that included vessels from Italy, humanitarian organisations as well as the EU's border agency Frontex, saving 6,500 migrants, the coastguard wrote on Twitter.
In the moments before reports of gunshots spread panic at Los Angeles International Airport, police with weapons drawn had confronted a masked man outside a terminal who was carrying a plastic sword and dressed like Zorro. The only people at the airport with guns Sunday night were officers, but false reports of an active shooter triggered a ripple of chaos that sent frantic travelers racing to the street and onto the tarmac. As police tried Monday to sort out the cause of the disruption, experts said the incident — the second of its kind at a major U.S. airport in two weeks — highlights one of the challenges faced by airports at a time of terrorism and frequent unsubstantiated reports.
By Stephanie Nebehay GENEVA (Reuters) - The United Nations human rights office has called on French beach resorts to lift their bans on the burkini, calling them a "stupid reaction" that did not improve security but fueled religious intolerance. U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein welcomed the decision by the Conseil d'Etat against the Mediterranean resort of Villeneuve-Loubet, his spokesman Rupert Colville said. A dozen other towns also have such bans.

Frank Ocean is an impressive car fanatic, as proven by him penning car essays and peppering marques into lyrics from his new album, Blonde. Diametrically opposing Ocean, in both automotive taste and adroitness, is Will.I.Am. Case in point: what he’s done to this poor Tesla Model S.
One of the most memorable images of The Night Of, the now-concluded HBO miniseries that seemed only to ever deal in memorable images, was among its simplest. In Sunday’s finale, the lawyer John Stone (John Turturro) presented his client Nasir Khan (Riz Ahmed) with the difficult decision of whether to report his other lawyer, Chandra (Amara Karan), for kissing Naz. Doing so could result in a mistrial—which could be a good thing for Naz, but would ruin Chandra’s career.

It won’t happen,” the Republican presidential nominee continued.

Brazil’s Senate on Wednesday voted to remove President Dilma Rousseff from office, the culmination of a yearlong fight that paralyzed Latin America’s largest nation and exposed deep rifts among its people on everything from race relations to social spending. Rousseff was Brazil’s first female president, with a storied career that includes a stint as a Marxist guerrilla jailed and tortured in the 1970s during the country’s dictatorship. “The Senate has found that the president of the federal republic of Brazil, Dilma Vana Rousseff, committed crimes in breaking fiscal laws,” said Chief Justice Ricardo Lewandowski, who presided over the trial.
A divided U.S. Supreme Court refused Wednesday to reinstate North Carolina's voter identification requirement and keep just 10 days of early in-person voting. The decision — a victory for voting rights groups and President Barack Obama's Justice Department — means voters won't have to show one of several qualifying photo IDs when casting ballots in the presidential battleground state. Early voting also reverts to 17 days, to begin Oct. 20.

Take when Red Bull’s Bryce Menzies jumped 379 feet in his 900-horsepower Pro 2 racing truck. Menzies's world record only came after much testing and modification. Months ago, at an unnamed test facility outside of San Diego, Red Bull, Pennzoil and Menzies’ crew began working out inital suspension set-ups and aerodynamic tweaks—remember, this is a flying truck.

Rush Limbaugh is easily the most consequential of these hosts. The full cost of doing so became evident this year, when a faction of populists shaped by years of talk radio, Fox News, and Breitbart.com picked Donald Trump to lead the Republican Party, a choice that makes a Hillary Clinton victory likely and is a catastrophe for movement conservatism regardless of who wins. “Rush Limbaugh, no matter his protestations otherwise, is one of the main reasons Donald Trump is the nominee for the GOP today,” Caleb Howe writes at Red State.
A woman has been killed after a truck carrying airbag parts made by Japan's troubled Takata exploded in a massive fireball on a US highway, the firm confirmed Tuesday.

Italian naval ships and vessels from non-government groups rescued thousands of migrants off the Libyan coast on Monday, the latest surge in desperate attempts to flee to Europe driven by war, poverty, and human traffickers. The dramatic operation took place just 21 kilometers (13 miles) north of the town of Sabratha in Libya. Groups such as Proactiva Open Arms and Doctors Without Borders helped take on some 3,000 people who had been traveling in some 20 small wooden boats.
Chessy Prout made her first public comments about the assault in an interview on NBC's "Today" show, telling what happened to her at St. Paul's School in 2014 when she was a 15-year-old freshman. The Associated Press typically does not identify victims of sexual assault unless they come forward publicly, as Prout has done. Jurors convicted Labrie last year of misdemeanor sex assault charges and a felony charge of using a computer to lure the student.
