Crashes kill two from Burbank

first_imgMedina had lived with her husband Manny at a seniors apartment complex in the 1100 block of Olive. Before her husband died Dec. 26, they often took morning walks together to St. Finbar Catholic Church, where they helped clean up leftover devotional candles, followed by breakfast at McDonald’s. It was a tradition she continued even after her husband’s death. On Friday, her apartment manager, Nina Smith, recalled the building janitor’s reaction when she was told of Medina’s death. “She started crying,” Smith said. “She went to the cupboard and handed me an apple pie from McDonald’s. (Medina) gave it to her the day before.” Witnesses can call Burbank Police at (818) 238-3000. In a separate incident Friday, a 73-year-old Burbank man was killed in a high-speed, head-on crash with a drunk driver going the wrong way on the 134 Freeway, authorities said. The crash occurred about 4:30 a.m. near the Glendale (2) Freeway, when the victim was hit by a Honda Element driven by Paul Runyan, 32, of Santa Clarita, who was traveling westbound in the 134’s eastbound lanes, the California Highway Patrol said. Investigators believe Runyan entered the freeway near Figueroa Street and traveled the wrong way for roughly two miles at speeds of up to 85 mph before encountering a CHP patrol car, said Lt. Damian McDermott of the CHP’s Altadena station. Runyan’s vehicle narrowly missed the patrol car before colliding with the Chevrolet Cavalier driven by the 73-year-old man. The victim’s identity was not immediately released. Runyan was taken to a local hospital to treat non-life-threatening injuries. He was arrested on suspicion of vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence, McDermott said. eugene.tong@dailynews.com (818) 546-3304160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Four-star Liverpool thrash woeful Arsenal

first_img0Shares0000Liverpool players celebrate Sadio Mane’s goal against Arsenal. PHOTO/SkyLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Aug 27- Arsenal’s early-season problems mounted at Anfield on Sunday after they were condemned to a miserable 4-0 defeat by Jurgen Klopp’s rampant Liverpool.Not even the return of Alexis Sanchez could inspire Arsene Wenger’s side as they fell to goals from Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Daniel Sturridge. Salah’s third goal, after 57 minutes, summed up Liverpool’s mastery of the opposition as Arsenal managed to concede from an attacking corner.After the ball was headed clear, Hector Bellerin misjudged the bounce and Salah sprang past him before sprinting over half the length of the field and converting clinically.Substitute Sturridge got in on the act with just his third league goal of 2017, completing the rout with a far-post header from Salah’s cross after yet another unstoppable counter-attack 20 minutes later.The opening goal had come in the 17th minute after wave after wave of Liverpool attacks.Finally, on a rapid break, young full-back Joe Gomez delivered a superb, hanging right-wing cross and Firmino sprinted in at full speed to head past Petr Cech from six yards.The warning signs had been there for Wenger, even before Firmino’s opener.On 10 minutes, Emre Can and Firmino had combined effectively for the former to cross to the far post, where Salah looked certain to score until Cech scurried across his goal to make a brilliant block.Moments after taking the lead, Liverpool should have doubled it as Firmino freed captain Jordan Henderson, whose poor touch preceded a shot that flew well off-target.Klopp’s decision to axe regular first-choice goalkeeper Simon Mignolet from his squad had raised eyebrows, although Arsenal made an equally significant move in dropping club-record signing Alexandre Lacazette to the bench.– Wretched –Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez reacts during their match against Liverpool in Liverpool, north west England on August 27Despite recalling Sanchez for his first Arsenal start since the FA Cup final in May, the Gunners looked close to complete disarray at times.Still, they might have taken the lead after just seven minutes when Sanchez surged through and played in Danny Welbeck, who could only hook his shot over under pressure from Gomez.But once in front, Liverpool played with increasing confidence, while Arsenal’s visibly drained.When Henderson’s 31st-minute cross was headed out of the area, Mane volleyed it, first-time, narrowly wide of the right-hand post.Liverpool’s control was complete in the 40th minute when Mane claimed a second goal that had been a long time coming.To sum up Arsenal’s wretched half, it came from one of their own attacks, which was broken up in the Liverpool area by Gomez.Liverpool broke upfield at electrifying pace, Can to Firmino to Mane, and the forward calmly cut inside Rob Holding before curling an unstoppable finish past the diving Cech.Wenger brought on Francis Coquelin for Aaron Ramsey at the interval and the visitors at least started to threaten, with Mesut Ozil shooting wide and Sanchez seeing his shot blocked on the edge of the area.The relief was short-lived, however, with Can soon heading a Salah free-kick just wide and Salah’s pacy run clean through on goal drawing another good save from Cech.The third and fourth goals were fully deserved for the hosts and only another good stop by the beleaguered Cech denied Mane a second goal in between them.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

CIA, Army get ‘terrorist’ label in Iran

first_imgTEHRAN, Iran – Iran’s parliament on Saturday approved a nonbinding resolution labeling the CIA and the U.S. Army “terrorist organizations,” in apparent response to a Senate resolution seeking to give a similar designation to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The hard-line dominated parliament cited U.S. involvement in dropping nuclear bombs in Japan in World War II, using depleted uranium munitions in the Balkans, Afghanistan and Iraq, supporting the killings of Palestinians by Israel, bombing and killing Iraqi civilians, and torturing terror suspects in prisons. “The aggressor U.S. Army and the Central Intelligence Agency are terrorists and also nurture terror,” said a statement by the 215 lawmakers who signed the resolution at an open session of the Iranian parliament. The session was broadcast live on state-run radio. The resolution, which is seen as a diplomatic offensive against the U.S., urges Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s government to treat the two as terrorist organizations. It also paves the way for the resolution to become legislation that – if ratified by the country’s hardline constitutional watchdog – would become law. Tensions between the U.S. and Iran have escalated over Washington accusations that Iran is secretly trying to develop nuclear weapons and has been supplying Shiite militias in Iraq with deadly weapons used to kill U.S. troops. Iran denies both of the allegations.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! The government is expected to wait for U.S. reaction before making its decision. In Washington, the White House declined to comment Saturday. On Wednesday, the Senate voted 76-22 in favor of a resolution urging the State Department to designate Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization. While the proposal attracted overwhelming bipartisan support, a small group of Democrats said they feared labeling the state-sponsored organization a terrorist group could be interpreted as a congressional authorization of military force in Iran. The Bush administration had already been considering whether to blacklist an elite unit within the Revolutionary Guard, subjecting part of the vast military operation to financial sanctions. The U.S. legislative push came a day after Ahmadinejad told world leaders at the U.N. General Assembly that his country would defy attempts to impose new sanctions by “arrogant powers” seeking to curb its nuclear program, accusing them of lying and imposing illegal penalties on his country. He said the nuclear issue was now “closed” as a political issue and Iran would pursue the monitoring of its nuclear program “through its appropriate legal path,” the International Atomic Energy Agency, which is the U.N.’s nuclear watchdog. last_img read more
