A Tabernacle woman was killed late Sunday night when a car in which she was riding - apparently being driven to elude police - slammed into a pickup truck driven by her brother, state police said. The car, with its headlights and taillights off and traveling at what police called "a high rate of speed," ran a stop sign at Routes 620 and 534 in Shamong, Burlington County, and hit the pickup truck, hurtling debris into a nearby apartment, police said. The debris injured a 10-year-old girl inside the apartment, they said.

Ever notice how popular you are when you drive a pickup? It's really remarkable. You get calls from obscure relatives who want to borrow your truck to haul a Louis-the-Something-or-Other armoire from Weirton, W. Va., to Backwater, N.J. The president of your high school class, whom you haven't seen since June 1967, suddenly appears at your door and wonders if he can use your pickup to get a load of mulch. Little League groundskeepers see you as a natural ally. You receive Telex messages from underdeveloped countries urgently requesting your pickup for the transport of political prisoners.

BALTIMORE Orioles slugger Chris Davis is currently sitting out a 25-game suspension for using Adderall, a banned substance. Usually a drug that helps people with attention deficit disorder improve their focus, it is categorized by Major League Baseball as a stimulant, thus the suspension. Maybe Davis can use what happened Monday on a Maryland highway as Exhibit A that, indeed, the drug has made him more alert and focused. Traveling on I-295 on his way to pick up friends at Baltimore-Washington Thurgood Marshall Airport, Davis saw a tire blow out on a big pickup truck, causing the vehicle to flip and pin a man underneath it. Davis, whose nickname just happens to be "Crash," was the first to arrive at the accident scene and began waving to passers-by to stop and help.

Suge Knight murder case heats up A Los Angeles judge ruled that prosecutors have enough evidence to try hip hop mogul Marion "Suge" Knight , 49, for allegedly running down two men intentionally with his pickup truck in late January outside a Compton, Calif., burger stand. Terry Carter died, and Cle "Bone" Sloan suffered serious injuries. Superior Court Judge Ronald Coen also agreed Friday to an Associated Press request that he release some evidence to the public. This includes a one-hour police interview with Sloan, and, perhaps most damning, a video from a surveillance camera outside the burger stand that captured what happened.

TWO WOMEN testified yesterday to similar accounts of how a man in a white pickup truck drove each of them, on separate occasions, to Pennypack Park in Northeast Philadelphia, then brutally raped them. After hearing their testimonies, Municipal Judge Teresa Carr Deni held defendant Robert Palen, 39 - the most recent high-profile alleged Pennypack Park rapist - for trial on charges of rape, aggravated assault and related offenses. One woman, 31, tearfully testified that a little after 7 p.m. Aug. 1, 2010, she was hanging on the corner of Disston Street and Torresdale Avenue in Tacony when Palen, whom she did not know, circled around her in a white "utility" pickup truck.

A pickup truck crashed through the icy surface of the Toms River early Sunday, setting off an intense search for its occupants, who turned themselves in unharmed more than 12 hours later at police headquarters, authorities said. But the dog belonging to the man police identified as the driver was not so lucky. Shortly before 3 p.m., state police recovered the body of a pet boxer mix that had been trapped in the submerged truck since it sank shortly after midnight. State police and Coast Guard rescue crews spent much of the day searching for the men with helicopters and dive teams, state police Sgt. First Class Gregory Williams said.

Jennie Russo was dying. Suffering from pulmonary fibrosis, an often-fatal lung disease, the 93-year-old was spending her last days on oxygen and in a hospital bed in her Bristol Township home. Deeply religious, she kept a rosary around her neck and surrounded her bed with no fewer than 12 religious statues and eight holy pictures, including one of the Blessed Mother that her mother had brought over from Sicily. "Every day we would talk about all the religious statues, and she would count all of them to make sure they were facing her," her daughter-in-law Brenda Russo said.

Joe Chambers was the right person with the right training at the right time. And a Philadelphia police officer could owe his life to that.
