A mother says she’s lucky to be alive after a bizarre crash in Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania.

On Wednesday a woman was driving her kids to school when a wheel and axle came loose on a pickup truck travelling in the opposite direction.

She told WNEP that the wheel flew into the air and crashed through the windshield. The axle stopped inches short of crushing the woman’s head.

“That’s something you see in a movie. That’s like ‘Final Destination,'” said David Duchnik, who towed the SUV after the crash.

The woman wants to remain anonymous. She says the one thing that may have saved her life was that her teenage son was driving her SUV the night before, so the seat was farther back than normal. Those few inches may have made all the difference.

President-Elect says he wants to scrap new Air Force One

Using a simple tweet to overturn carefully laid plans about one piece of the federal budget, President-Elect Donald Trump said on Tuesday that a Pentagon plan to have Boeing build a new Air Force One for future presidents is too expensive, and should be canceled, labeling it “totally out of control.”

Mr. Trump reinforced that later in the morning, as he told reporters gathered at Trump Tower that he thinks the cost is “ridiculous.”

“I think Boeing is doing a little bit of a number,” the President-Elect said. “We want Boeing to make a lot of money, but not that much money.”

In his financial disclosure from earlier this year, Mr. Trump had said he owned between $50,000 and $100,000 of Boeing stock, but an aide told reporters that was sold back in June.

Mr. Trump’s declaration about a new Air Force One came as the Congress is ready this week to give final approval to a major defense policy bill, which will authorize the spending of $351 million in the current fiscal year for work on a new Air Force One.

That provision is tucked into the fine print of the over 3,000 page House-Senate agreement on a blueprint for next year’s defense budget.

As you might notice, you don’t search for “Air Force One” to find the details, but instead for “Presidential Aircraft Replacement.”

The House has already approved that overall defense authorization bill; a final vote in the Senate is expected later this week.

            Investigators searching for person of interest after starved dogs found

Clayton County police are looking for whoever starved one dog to death and left another one in very bad condition.

Police say they are looking for the last person to live in a now-vacant house along Denson Boulevard.

Investigators said they found two dogs at the home Friday and one of them didn't survive the trip to get help.

“This case has been given the highest priority and is actively being investigated as a cruelty case,” said Capt. Anthony Thuman, of the Clayton County Police Department.

The surviving dog is with Clayton County police and she is recovering, but authorities say the dogs deserved better.

“This is a horrific case. This is a disturbing case, to any member of my staff. Anytime you see an animal that is literally starved to death, it can’t help but tug at your heartstrings,” Thuman said.

Police went to the house Friday morning for an eviction call. When they arrived, they discovered both dogs chained outside without any food.

Investigators have identified the last tenant as Matthew Darnell Jeffries, who they say is a person of interest.

“We are asking Mr. Jeffries to please contact us in reference to this because we'd like to speak to him about it,” Thuman said.

Police say the ex-tenant is not a suspect. They just want to talk to him. Whoever is responsible faces multiple animal cruelty charges.
