    Russian media has revealed that a head-on crash in which a man was killed involved Vladimir Putin's official black BMW. However the Russian President was not in the car at the time when it was struck head-on by another vehicle which crossed over from the opposite side of the road. CCTV images of the footage taken on Kutuzovsky Avenue in the Russian capital Moscow show how the Mercedes collided head-on with the presidential BMW. Russian media said that the car was being driven by Putin's favourite official driver, and that he was killed instantly, but that the President was not...

By Beckie Strum Traffic fatalities rose 9% in the first six months of 2016, compared with a year earlier, as a stronger economy and falling gas prices encouraged Americans to spend more time behind the wheel, the National Safety Council said on Tuesday.

    LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18) - A quiet summer night in Laurel County got shaken up by a loud crash, and a swarm of bees. Neighbors say they could hear the screaming all the way up the hills. People on Patton Spur Road don't see many cars come down the dead-end street. But last night, Gary Anderson watched from his porch as a purple Tracker veered on and off the pavement. "Then he passed probably going about 35-40 miles an hour, pretty fast really. And all the sudden, I heard a big boom," said Anderson. He says the driver, Noah...

Fears about slowing growth in the United States and around the globe have contributed to the recent selling.

    Crude oil has become so cheap it could speed the oil market to a recovery. U.S. crude plunged on Thursday to a 12-year low, an ominous milestone for Houston's oil hub, which already has shed thousands of jobs in the 19-month oil downturn. With crude now fetching less than $34 a barrel, about half the nation's scattered collection of 400,000 aging, nearly depleted wells may have to be shut in as their product becomes less valuable than their operating costs. Called stripper wells, these produce a negligible amount of oil individually but together account for about a tenth of U.S....
