A 32-year-old New Jersey woman reportedly working four part-time jobs died from carbon monoxide poisoning while sleeping in her SUV between shifts, the New Jersey Star-Ledger reported.
Police in Elizabeth found Maria Fernandes dead inside the vehicle on Monday afternoon. Authorities believe she pulled the SUV, a 2001 Kia Sportage, into a convenience store parking lot to take a nap, but left the car running while she slept.
Toxicology reports on Fernandes’ death are still pending, but police believe that carbon monoxide from the car, combined with fumes from a spilled gasoline can inside, combined to poison her.

We have no opinion at the moment on the one-car-wreck that left former FBI director Louis Freeh badly injured around noon on August 25, other than to note some curious facts: the police were hours late informing the office of the governor of Vermont; Freeh was flown by helicopter to the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital in New Hampshire under armed guard, and has remained under armed guard; the hospital has refused to confirm that he is a patient, even after reports of two surgeries; at least for the first few days no one has answered the phones at his company, Freeh Group International.
From news reports available at press time, Freeh
was headed south on Vermont 12 in his 2010 GMC Yukon when he drove off the east side of the road.

California may soon become the second state to pass a paid sick leave law. The bill now headed for a state Senate vote would guarantee workers three days of paid sick leave a year—an extremely low number, but an improvement from the zero days workers are now guaranteed under the law.
A new study from the Institute for Women’s Policy Research suggests that 44 percent of workers in California don’t have access to even one paid sick day a year.
