1 hurt when pickup truck crashes into Greensburg house | TribLIVE.com

At first, Charles Colarusso thought he heard a bolt of lightning.

But when the front of his house was ripped off Friday afternoon just feet away from where he was sitting in his living room, the Greensburg man realized it wasn’t a storm, but a pickup truck.

He came outside and saw the truck wedged into the front of his house. The driver, who is a longtime acquaintance of Colarusso’s, was taken away by ambulance, he said.

President Trump said he’s been briefed by Navy pilots regarding the sightings of unidentified flying objects, but remained skeptical of the existence of UFOs.

President Trump said he’s been briefed by Navy pilots regarding sightings of unidentified flying objects, but remained skeptical of the existence of UFOs.

George Stephanopoulos of ABC News raised the issue during an interview with Trump released Saturday.

PENTAGON FINALLY ADMITS IT INVESTIGATES UFOS

“I was struck in the last few couple of weeks, we’re reading more and more reports of Navy pilots seeing lots and lots of UFOs,” Stephanopoulos said to a smiling Trump. “Have you been briefed on that? What do you make of it?”

In 2014 and 2015, pilots with the U.S. Navy reported multiple UFO sightings during training maneuvers.

“I want them to think whatever they think,” Trump replied, referring to the Navy pilots. “I did have one very brief meeting on it. But people are saying they’re seeing UFOs. Do I believe it? Not particularly.”

Uber Drivers Say They Are Incentivized To Pick Up Kids Despite Breaking Rules

“They will say, ‘Well no we don’t want you to do that,’ but in fact the way that they handle all their bonuses and rewards, that’s exactly what they’re doing,” one driver said.

Uber requires all account holders be at least 18 years old and explicitly prohibit children from riding without an adult. But, as news that a 12-year-old died by suicide after taking an Uber by herself showed, the policy hasn’t deterred parents and kids from using the service or prevented drivers from transporting them anyway.
