A New Jersey appellate court has ruled that drivers can be found liable for fleeing the scene of an accident even if it can't be proven they hit anyone.
The Pleasantville man received a five-year sentence for his role in a crash that killed 88-year-old Bu Do Jo, who was run over and killed by a jitney bus in 2011.
Hawaii state Sen. Russell Ruderman worries whenever there's a mosquito buzzing in his home.
 recently, he never gave the common pests much thought, but now his wife is six months pregnant and there's a dengue fever outbreak on the Big Island.
The victim escaped Tuesday and went to a neighbor's for help.
 on Wednesday, authorities charged Wilbert Glover with kidnapping and criminal sexual conduct.
The criminal complaint says Glover injured himself in a holding cell after banging his head on a door frame.
The Arizona Cardinals have placed outside linebacker Lamarr Woodley on season-ending injured reserve with a chest injury and signed defensive tackle Red Bryant.

 Allison understands why this season has become so special for No. 20 Washington State and the opportunity in front of the Cougars on Friday in the Apple Cup against rival Washington to make his senior season truly memorable.
After opening the year with arguably the most embarrassing home loss in school history, the Cougars (8-3, 6-2 Pac-12) can keep alive the chance at a 10-win season and potentially keep their rivals home for the holidays by beating the Huskies.
Only six times in school history has Washington State reached the 10-win mark, but a victory over the Huskies and in its bowl game would cap an unexpected turnaround after the year began losing to Portland State.
The biggest question surrounds Washington State quarterback Luke Falk and his availability less than a week after being taken off the field on a backboard after suffering an apparent head injury against Colorado.
Washington State coach Mike Leach has bristled at any questions regarding Falk's status, leaving the possibility of redshirt freshman Peyton Bender making his first college start against the Huskies.
Falk has a better experience with the Cougars offense, but Bender has the better arm and wasn't far behind during the offseason QB competition.
