Car Spins Through Air, Crashes Down on Stopped Vehicles

A 76-year-old driver may have suffered some sort of medical event when he crashed and went flying into the air, thudding back down onto vehicles stopped at a traffic light on a Long Island roadway, police said.  The out-of-control Lexus slammed into nine other cars stopped at a red light on Route 110 northbound and Bentley Road in Amityville around lunchtime Tuesday, according to police. Surveillance video shows the car flying through the air before crashing down on the other vehicles.  "It went airborne over my car and crashed in front of me," said Ashley Seales, who was among the drivers stopped at the light when she felt the sudden impact.  Nine people were taken to the hospital, including the 76-year-old driver and another passenger who was hurt when a flying car part smashed through the rear of the SUV he was in and hit him in the shoulder.

Man Cuts Open Sac Stuck on Banana, Finds Dead Spider

A Long Island couple was grossed out to find a dead spider inside a sac attached to a banana purchased at a local supermarket.  Venus Vanglad says she bought a bunch of bananas at a supermarket in Bay Shore last week. The fruit sat in the house for about three or four days before her husband took one to work as a truck driver in New York City. That's when he spotted a large white sac coming out of the overripe banana. "He thought it was tissue at first," she told News 4 in an email. Her husband used a knife to cut open the sac, and out came the dead spider.  "I was gonna eat this banana!" he could be heard exclaiming to another person in cellphone video provided to News 4. "It was, like, stuck in the crack or something."  Vanglad said she didn't notice anything unusual on the fruit when she purchased it at a King Kullen supermarket. She spoke to a manager at the store after the discovery of the spider, and they offered her to
