Iranian cargo plane crash kills 15, leaves 1 survivor

TEHRAN, Iran — A decades-old Iranian Boeing 707 military cargo plane reportedly carrying meat from Kyrgyzstan crashed on Monday while trying to land west of Iran’s capital, killing 15 people on board and leaving a sole survivor, authorities said.

The crash of the jetliner marked just the latest aviation disaster for Iran, which hoped to replace its aging fleet under terms of the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

But instead, President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the accord in May scuttled billions of dollars in planned sales by Airbus and Boeing Co. to the Islamic Republic, only increasing the danger for passengers in Iran planes.

The aircraft, which bore the paint scheme of the Iranian air force’s Saha civilian airline, was making emergency landing around 8:30 a.m. Monday at Fath Airport, an airfield controlled by Iran’s powerful paramilitary Revolutionary Guard. The plane skidded off the runway, crashed through a perimeter fence and into a residential neighborhood.

Egg prank leads to Texas boy in custody for murder

Teens hurled eggs from a moving vehicle in a New Year’s Day prank that led to a fatal collision that claimed the life of a 45-year-old mom, according to officials.

Police said a 14-year-old boy faces murder charges after a head-on crash Tuesday afternoon that killed another driver in Aldine, Texas, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

The teen — whose identity wasn’t released because of his age — took his father’s SUV out for a spin along with two other friends, all of whom were not old enough to drive, police said.

The suspects told police that another driver flashed a firearm at them near an intersection after his Lincoln sedan was hit in the egging spree.

The 14-year-old ran a red light to escape the Lincoln sedan but slammed into a Ford F-150 and killed its driver, authorities said.

The victim was later identified as Silvia Zavala, a mom who had been shopping before the incident, according to NBC News.

Police said the teen driver suffered a broken ankle and was booked into a juvenile detention center.
