At least 12 people were killed and three injured when a pickup and a church van collided head-on in southwestern Texas.
The crash happened Wednesday afternoon about 75 miles (120 kilometers) west of San Antonio, police said.
Police said the van was carrying 14 senior members of the First Baptist Church of New Braunfels, and there was one person, the driver, in the truck.
In a statement posted on the church website, church officials said the members were returning from a three-day retreat at the Alto Frio Baptist Encampment in Leakey, about nine miles (14 kilometers) north of the crash site.
Driver Detained after Hitting Capitol Police Car
Police in Washington said a woman who appeared to be "erratic and aggressive" rammed her car into a police cruiser near the U.S. Capitol Wednesday morning before being arrested.
Capitol Police spokeswoman Eva Malecki was quick to avert any terror allegations, saying the event showed "no nexus of terrorism."
Malecki said police attempted to stop the vehicle when the driver pulled a U-turn and attempted to flee. Police fired several shots in their attempt to stop the suspect.
Republicans Signal Desire to Keep Working on Health Care Reform
Republicans in the U.S. House of Representatives are signaling a commitment to continue trying to overhaul the nation's health care system, after their push to repeal former President Barack Obama's signature program failed in dramatic fashion last week.
House leaders opted not to hold a vote on the Republican health care bill when it became clear it did not have enough support to pass.
Some opponents feared the measure would force too many people to lose health coverage, while others said it did not go far enough in reforming Obama's Affordable Care Act.
Sensitivity to Certain Sounds Is a Real Thing Do you ever shudder when you hear certain sounds, such as rustling of some type of plastic bags or a fork scraping on the bottom of a porcelain plate? Or get a tingling in your teeth when somone scrapes their fingernails on a blackboard?
It may be a mild annoyance for most, but a serious problem for people with "misophonia," from the Greek words meaning hatred of sound.
No matter how tolerant we are, most of us feel uncomfortable if a person sitting close to us in a quiet cinema starts noisily opening a bag of chips and loudly eating them.
