USA Update

Rick Lord A possible murder mystery in Georgia, a big blast in Utah, and quite an entrepreneur in California on this USA Update

February 21, 2014
Reporter: Rick Lord


Georgia... a crew filming a scene for the upcoming Allman Brothers movie "Midnight Rider" was involved in a fatal train accident near Jesup. Investigators say the crew was filming on a trestle when they were hit by a train. A 27-year-old woman died, and seven others were injured. Police have collected all film shot at the scene. They're not saying much, but the death is being investigated as a homicide...

Utah... an explosion at an industrial plant puts two people in the hospital. It happened at the U.S. Magnesium plant in Tooele County. Medical helicopters came to the scene to take the two burn victims to a nearby hospital. The blast caused hot steam to shoot into the face and chest of those workers. No word yet on exactly what caused the explosion...

California... now this is one smart cookie. A 13-year-old Girl Scout has mastered the motto location, location, location, selling her cookies outside a medical marijuana dispensary. She likely didn't even know 'Girl Scout Cookie' is already the most popular flavor of pot for sale here. Staffers at the dispensary took video of the young girl and posted it online. And business was booming; she sold 117 boxes in 2 hours. And with that, we have smoked out another USA Update.
