6 ABC anchor/reporter Lisa Thomas-Laury says she was lucky to escape injury in a car accident Friday in Ardmore. Thomas-Laury's cream-colored Porsche Cayenne SUV was struck by another car near County Line and Roberts roads. She was thankful that her airbag deployed and that she was wearing a seat belt, the veteran broadcaster told us when we contacted her after hearing of the accident. "It looks worse than it is," she said about a bruise on her head. She said a first-responder told her she would have been much worse off if she hadn't been driving an SUV. She was taken to Paoli Memorial Hospital in a neck brace.

The excitement that has been building for the renewal of the rivalry between Army and Navy on Dec. 8 was on display Wednesday at Lincoln Financial Field, where coaches and players discussed the importance of the game to U.S. military personnel around the world. But the excitement on Navy's side was toned down considerably by a serious injury suffered by one of its players. Freshman Ralph "Rafi" Montalvo, the third-string quarterback for the Midshipmen, remained in a medically induced coma at a hospital in his hometown of Miami after suffering a severe head injury in a one-car accident on Thanksgiving night.

One of Tim Paciello's best friends stood with classmates Tuesday on a side street across from Pottsgrove High School. The last bell had rung about 15 minutes before. He cried. They tried to comfort him. He cried. "He was there for everyone," his friend, a junior at the school, said about Paciello between labored breaths. "He didn't care who you were. He didn't care what you liked. " Paciello, a 16-year-old student who died Monday, cared only about being a good friend. On Monday, just before 9 p.m., Paciello was struck by a car as he crossed East High Street by Sunnyside Avenue in Lower Pottsgrove Township, said the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office and Lower Pottsgrove Township Police.

JUDE LAW GOES big to play the lead role in "Dom Hemingway," literally and otherwise. Law's packed on some "Raging Bull" pounds to play Dom, an ex-con and career criminal emerging from a long stretch in prison to collect the large amount of money owed him for keeping quiet in prison. The actor goes big in other ways - the movie is larded with oratory, long and loud and stylized and obscene, and Law delivers each speech with theatrical panache and red-faced commitment (not from embarrassment, but from exertion)

Ouch. Pat Miller, 59, of Clementon, walked down her front walk at 7:15 a.m. Friday going to work, slipped on the ice, and broke the first bone of her life - her right wrist. The timing couldn't be worse. Her daughter is getting married in the first week of February. "So I'll probably have a cast," she lamented. "Maybe they can glitter it up. " Few in the Philadelphia area expected the ground to be a sheet of ice Friday morning, certainly not Miller, a secretary with Moorestown Township schools.

AMONG the shocking details of Paul Walker 's death this past weekend was his age - he'd turned 40 only a few months before the car accident that claimed his life. In his most recent "Fast & Furious" installment, Walker still looked like the blue-eyed twenty-something California surfer he was when he broke through in the film business years ago. His stature as the impossibly good-looking SoCal blond defined him in those early days - a stint on a soap opera, a role in the utopian 1950s send-up "Pleasantville" as the handsome jock who never misses a jump shot.

ONE OF THE themes to this season is the underperforming running back. Like loud ties and bad breath, they are impossible to hide. LeSean McCoy, admirably taking responsibility even though his offensive line can't open a can of tuna right now, is on the list. But he's certainly not alone. Let's look at the top consensus running backs entering the season and how they've fared halfway through. Adrian Peterson, Vikings: The tragedy he has endured with the murder of his son makes criticizing his inconsistent fantasy production heartless.
