USA Update

Rick Lord Reduced to rubble in New York, A hair-raising wreck in Texas, and a cat on the prowl in California on this USA Update

March 12, 2014
Reporter: Rick Lord


New York... tragedy in East Harlem after a building explodes. At least two people are dead and half a dozen still missing. The blast sparked a five alarm fire with hundreds of firefighters spending the day at the scene. Witnesses say they heard a loud boom around 9:30 this morning, and others said they smelled gas. The bomb squad was at the scene, and train service in the area was suspended...

Texas... an SUV crashes through a hair salon, narrowly missing people inside. This is surveillance video of the accident, and you can see the vehicle crashing through the entrance. Three people walked away with only minor injuries. One customer was almost crushed but she is expected to recover. The driver says she swerved to avoid another driver who cut her off. Her two kids in the car were not hurt in the crash...

California... there are plenty of things that roam the streets of Hollywood, but usually not mountain lions. Surveillance cameras caught this guy wandering the streets, walking alongside parked cars. This neighborhood in the Hollywood Hills is about half a mile from popular Griffith Park. Wildlife officials are trying to come up with a plan should the lion become a nuisance. And with that, we haven't been lyin' on this USA Update.
