Rosemead Driver Involved in Fatal Traffic Accident

Fatal accident on an on-ramp I often use. This would be the ramp from Via Campo on to the eastbound Pomona Freeway. No reason why cars should collide here. There's a long, straight ramp for cars coming on to the freeway, and you have your own lane for over a mile after you reach the freeway.

The Great Escape

A handcuffed shoplifting suspect escaped a Sheriff's vehicle and eluded the containment area intended to recapture him.

How does someone with his hands cuffed behind him make a clean getaway? You'd think someone would have seen him. And you know his wife must have had some questions for him when he got home!
