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.

'High Country" seems like an apt name for a pickup truck that starts at $56,265. But then again, the test truck in question - the Chevrolet Silverado 2500 High Country fitted with a crew cab and four-wheel drive - is no ordinary pickup. It is a heavy-duty, top-of-the-line bodybuilder that allows you to carry five big boys and pull enormous trailers while lolling in a leathery, wood-accented environment. The test truck can tow 13,000 pounds if you use a trailer hitch, and pull 13,900 pounds with a bed-mounted fifth wheel.

Get a good look at Danny Kean - pounding the keys as his dog, Mo, snoozes atop his piano, jammed in the bed of his old red pickup truck. Because he won't be in Philadelphia for long. Gray-haired and goateed, Kean may be the last of the hard-core troubadours. He talks fast, thinks deep, and moves on. He has no home, no job, and no money. What he's got is a 1987 Toyota, three-quarters of a tank of gas, and a belief that bringing piano music to people across the continent affords them, and him, a certain kind of enlightenment.

ALL THOMAS Ewing wanted Friday was a night out with his friends, to see the work week off and unwind. He would have gotten exactly that - if not for some violent punk who, in the heat of a petty spat, stabbed Ewing to death in front of his own front door. "I can't believe something like this happened to somebody who does nothing wrong," said Seth Lempert, a friend of Ewing's who he once slung pizzas alongside at a local restaurant. "We lost a kid at 21 years old," Lempert said.

EPIFANIO VELAZQUEZ thought the voice at the other end of the line was playing a cruel joke. "The owner of this phone just got hit by a truck," the mysterious caller said late June 22. But that's impossible, Velazquez thought: The number matched his brother Julio's cellphone. Velazquez demanded more details, but the caller hung up in a panic. A few hours later, he received another call. It wasn't a joke, although he wishes it were. His brother Julio Torres was lying in Temple University Hospital, grievously wounded after he was run down by a pickup truck while riding a bicycle in North Philly.

AFTER THE CRASH, the truck's driver seemed sincere, at least initially. He jumped out of the cab, looked over the cyclist lying broken on a North Philly street and told a witness that he would be right back, that he was only going to move his car out of traffic. But that driver, who police haven't identified, bolted after parking the 1989 Ford F-150 pickup truck he had been driving, leaving behind the man he had run down just moments earlier. The victim, identified as Julio Torres, 55, was in critical condition Tuesday night at Temple University Hospital, said Capt.

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.
