A 76-year-old driver may have suffered some sort of medical event when he crashed into vehicles stopped at a traffic light on a Long Island roadway, causing a 10-car pileup, police said.  The out-of-control car slammed into nine other cars stopped at a red light on Route 110 northbound by the Southern Parkway in Amityville, according to police. Ashley Seales was among the drivers stopped at the light. "It went airborne over my car and crashed in front of me," Seales said of the out-of-control car.  Nine people were taken to the hospital, but no one was seriously hurt.

Lawyer: White House Moved to Squelch Testimony; WH Denies It
Lawyer: White House Moved to Squelch Testimony; WH Denies It

A lawyer for former deputy Attorney General Sally Yates wrote in letters last week that the Trump administration was trying to limit her testimony at congressional hearings focused on Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. The hearing was later canceled by the House intelligence committee chairman. In the letters, attorney David O'Neil said he understood the Justice Department was invoking "further constraints" on testimony Yates could provide at a committee hearing that had been scheduled for Tuesday. He said the department's position was that all actions she took as deputy attorney general were "client confidences" that could not be disclosed without written approval. "We believe that the Department's position in this regard is overbroad, incorrect, and inconsistent with the Department's historical approach to the congressional testimony of current and former senior officials," O'Neil wrote in a March 23 letter to Justice Department official Samuel Ramer.
