Thomas B. Langhorne Evansville Courier & Press Published 9:18 p.m. UTC Jun 25, 2018 EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Authorities may never know what moved David Egan to step onto a darkened stretch of Interstate 69 late Friday night, clad only in black shorts and waving at motorists. But they know someone might be keeping a terrible secret about what happened next — a driver ran over Egan in a southbound lane of the highway near South Green River Road and kept on going. The 23-year-old Evansville man was killed, leaving investigators and Egan's heartbroken family with more questions than answers. It is all a mystery to Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding, who can't fathom what Egan was doing in the middle of I-69 just before 11 p.m. "It's a weird event," Wedding said. "It's bizarre that he was out there on the highway at that time of night with just shorts on. We're still trying to piece it together. He was actually in the roadway when he got struck. It … [Read more...] about ‘Weird’ death on I-69 in Evansville shrouded in mystery
A father-of-two was inches from death after a 1 metre crowbar skewered his body when he fell from a shed roof. Malcolm Arnold, 52, was using the tool while helping a friend fix his roof when the accident happened. The crowbar pierced his abdomen and perforated Malcolm's bowel in three places and was perilously close to his vital organs which meant any slight movement would have killed him. Mr Arnold told Mirror.co.uk:"I've done the same job about four times before and I knew what I was doing. "I was holding the crowbar in my left hand, using it to remove nails from the tin roof. I had only removed about four nails from the bottom when the whole metal sheet started to slide. "It was like something from a cartoon. I started to back-peddle as fast as I could, running backward to try to stay on the moving roof." But despite Malcolm's best efforts to grip onto the roof, he plummeted to the ground and straight onto the metal crowbar which pierced the earth - and Malcolm's torso - like an … [Read more...] about Dad-of-two suffers horror injury as crowbar skewers his body in roof fall
Think the Mets’ injury-riddled tailspin has been hard on the team’s masochistic fan base? Look what it’s doing to Sandy Alderson. The general manager turned his routine start-of-a-home-series media briefing Thursday into a freewheeling discourse on the Mets’ stubborn medical bugaboos, a recurring annual theme that has tried Alderson’s patience to no end. Once he began answering questions that nobody really asked in the first place, we got the sense that this injury stuff is getting under his trademark fleece vest. He’s only human, and the weirdness that keeps happening to the Mets borders on the supernatural, with not one but two pitchers somehow being afflicted by finger strains on consecutive days earlier this week in Atlanta. That’s on top of Todd Frazier going on the disabled list for the first time in his eight-year career and Yoenis Cespedes turning leg injuries into a summer ritual akin to beach traffic and clambakes. What’s a GM … [Read more...] about Sandy Alderson pained by Mets’ never-ending injury woes
