he teen mob violence that spawned at least 17 assaults and robberies
Saturday night in downtown Louisville may have been fermenting for

A TARC spokeswoman said Monday that a horde of

same day Me'Mequale Offutt died of his injuries after he was stabbed in
the heart two days earlier during a scuffle on a TARC bus.

A few
hours later March 18, teenagers attacked another bus at 38th and

Both buses were damaged, and both attacks were reported to police, she

Police say road accident involving 2 trucks, 2 buses in SW Pakistan has killed at least 25 | Fox News

Pakistani police say at least 25 people died and over 30 were injured
in a multi-vehicle collision involving two trucks and two passenger
buses on a coastal highway in the country's southwest.

Senior
officer Ahmed Nawaz says the accident took place early on Saturday near
the town of Gadani, when a bus bound for the port city of Karachi
collided head-on with a truck coming from the opposite direction.

Nawaz
says the second bus and truck then piled up onto the two vehicles and
all caught fire, mainly because the buses were also smuggling Iranian
gasoline- and diesel-filled canisters on board.

He says most of the victims were severely burned and that the death toll may increase.

Bad road infrastructure and poor driving often cause accidents in Pakistan.

Guilty plea entered in Iowa bus records tampering - News and Weather For The Quad Cities -

HOLSTEIN, Iowa (AP) - A former transportation director of a northwest
Iowa school district has pleaded guilty to tampering with bus records.


Fifty-two-year-old Douglas Wessling filed his plea earlier this week. Sioux City television station KCAU says (http://bit.ly/12Xhwd3 ) Wessling will receive two years of probation and an order to pay a $1,000 fine.


Wessling was put on leave last fall and then lost
his job as transportation director for the Galva-Holstein Community
School District after an investigation by the Iowa State Patrol.


District Superintendent Dave Kwikkel has said three
district buses were taken out of service because of damage. Kwikkel
said Wessling put one of them back into use before it had been repaired.
Authorities say he also falsified repair records on at least three
buses.
