Family Fumes After Capitol Rioter Out on Bond Kills Young Mom in Drunken Crash

  Family Fumes After Capitol Rioter Out on Bond Kills Young Mom in Drunken Crash A 22-year-old woman who stormed the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 was drunk and driving in the wrong direction on Wednesday night when she killed a young mom and seriously injured another driver, authorities said. Emily Hernandez was driving west in the eastbound lanes in Franklin County, Missouri, just after 7 p.m. when she crashed into another car that spun into the median strip and struck cable barriers, police said. Both vehicles “swerved to avoid each other,” according to a crash report posted by the Missouri State Highway Patrol, but that didn’t spare 32-year-old Victoria Wilson, a passenger in a 2019 Buick Enclave, who perished.

A Missouri woman charged with the infamous theft of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s name plate during the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol Complex is facing an altogether more serious legal issue in her home state as of this week. According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, Emily Hernandez, 22, was driving drunk on the wrong side of the highway during a fatal crash that killed another motorist on Wednesday evening in Franklin County.

Ranking the 37 college football bowl games for 2021-22: Rose delivers as Orange, Cotton disappoint

  Ranking the 37 college football bowl games for 2021-22: Rose delivers as Orange, Cotton disappoint Recapping every bowl game played over the holidays following the 2021 college football seasonIn the end, it was an average year. The good news is that while not every game was a thriller, there weren't a lot of blowouts. Of the 37 games played, 14 finished as one-score affairs while 11 finished with margins of at least three scores. The average margin of victory was 13.9 points per game, which is less than last year's 14.8.

The TV station’s report contains shocking details of the incident:

Truck driver Jeff Barlow recorded video of a car going in the wrong direction on the interstate. He said the car was going around 60 mph and he tracked six miles trying to get the driver to realize they were in the wrong lane.

Barlow said Wilson’s car was in the left lane and a truck in the right lane prevented them from getting over.  He described the collision as looking like an explosion.

“Everybody was first for her,” Wilson’s sister Angie Ortiz told the station. “She always put herself last to make sure everyone was taken care of.”

A GoFundMe was started by Ortiz to cover those out-of-nowhere funeral expenses as well as the family’s hospital bills.

“My baby sister Vickie Wilson was killed last night by a drunk driver,” the grieving sister wrote. “Her husband Ryan (36) is in the hospital awaiting surgery from the car accident and her kids Landon (15) and Eli (10) are staying with my parents. I’m asking for funds to help pay for the funeral that we now have to plan for her.”

'Like losing my brother all over again': Colorado crash victim's brother on social media reaction, truck driver's clemency

  'Like losing my brother all over again': Colorado crash victim's brother on social media reaction, truck driver's clemency The brother of a man who died in the Colorado crash that left four dead is speaking out after Gov. Jared Polis commuted a truck driver's 110-year prison sentence to 10 years.The truck driver, Rogel Aguilera-Mederos, 26, was sentenced last month to more than a century behind bars for the fatal crash on Interstate 70 eastbound outside Denver on April 25, 2019. The sentence gained national attention for its severity, and even the district attorney whose office prosecuted the case sought to have it reduced.

The grisly auto crash occurred on the eve of the one-year anniversary of the pro-Trump siege within and surrounding the national seat of legislative government. Hernandez is currently facing five federal misdemeanors over her alleged actions at the capitol. According to her attorney, she was planning on pleading out to one such charge this coming Monday.

That timeline may now change.

“The exact circumstances of the accident are unclear,” Hernandez’s attorney Ethan Corlija told KMOV. “It’s unfortunate. I am heartbroken for the others involved.”

Hernandez was linked to the abortive effort to stop the counting of electoral college votes by way of two tipsters who allegedly knew the defendant in real life and through social media.

Old Florida Keys bridge reopens to pedestrians, bicyclists .
MARATHON, Fla. (AP) — A segment of a 110-year-old Florida Keys bridge is reopening to pedestrians and bicyclists on Wednesday following a $44 million restoration project. Rehabilitation construction on the oft-photographed 2.2-mile (3.5-km) span of the Old Seven Mile Bridge began in late 2017. “What made the project challenging was that it is a historic bridge, and we had to restore the bridge to the same aesthetic fabric as the original,” said project manager Tony Sabbag, a Florida Department of Transportation contractor. © Provided by Associated Press In this Monday, Jan.
