Woman killed in Montebello car crash

first_imgWednesday afternoon, the county District Attorney’s Office charged the driver with gross vehicular manslaughter, a felony, police said. Police did not release the driver’s name on Wednesday. The other driver, a woman whose name was not immediately released, was taken by ambulance to Saint Francis Medical Center in Lynwood, where she later died, police said. Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office officials said they could not release the victim’s identity because officials were not certain whether her next of kin had been notified. MONTEBELLO – Montebello traffic police Wednesday were investigating a two-car crash that killed a woman. Although only scant details were available, police said the two compact cars collided at Greenwood Avenue and Telegraph Road shortly before 11p.m. Tuesday. Arriving officers observed that the driver of one of the cars appeared intoxicated. He was arrested and booked into jail on suspicion of drunken driving, Montebello Police Department Lt. Gus Cisneros said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img read more

Man City line-up v Bayern Munich – PL champions turn to veteran star in Toure’s absence

first_imgManchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini may show defiance in the face of his side’s Champions League travails, but he will be the first to admit they have an uphill battle as they take on Bayern Munich on Tuesday evening.Bayern currently top group E, boasting a perfect record and having scored 11 times and only conceded once.Pellegrini though will take solace in the fact that it was only an extremely late Jerome Boateng goal that proved the difference maker when the two sides met on matchday one back in September.Since then though, the two side’s paths have taken different courses, with City yet to register a victory in this season’s competition.Indeed, midfielder Samir Nasri has even admitted that the future of City’s highly-paid stars hang in the balance, with the Frenchman suggesting that a raft of talent could be shipped out unless the Premier League champions can turn their fortunes around.City are only two points behind AS Roma and CSKA Moscow in their group, and will require Tuesday’s fixture between the two to be drawn, in order to boost their own qualification hopes.Pellegrini’s side will be without star man Yaya Toure though, who is suspended following a dismissal in their capitulation last time out.So how will the City boss likely play this one out? Below is his predicted formation: 1 Manchester City face a must-win clash against Bayern Munich This is not a time to start experimenting with formations and tactics, so expect Pellegrini to use his tried and tested 4-2-2-2 line-up, with Sergio Aguero and the improving Stevan Jovetic spearheading the attack.Toure’s absence means there will likely be a start for veteran midfielder Frank Lampard, who brings with him a wealth of experience to the side.Man City fans, can you pull off the seemingly impossible and qualify for the knockout stages?

Powell breaks his 100-meter record

first_imgThe world’s fastest man improved his record Sunday, winning a heat at the Rieti Grand Prix in 9.74 seconds despite easing at the end. “This means that I can do even 9.68,” Powell said. “I’m worth that time, I know it.” The record comes only two weeks after the Jamaican finished a disappointing third at the track and field world championships in Osaka, Japan. “I made a couple of mistakes and I corrected them,” said Powell, who lowered the mark by 0.03 seconds, having run 9.77 three times. “That’s what happens when I start to listen to the coach.” The heat, the second of two, was run with a strong tail wind, but it was below the maximum allowed by track and field’s governing body, making the record valid. TRACK AND FIELD: Jamaican breaks his own mark with a 9.74, says he can go faster. By Alessandra Tarantino THE ASSOCIATED PRESS RIETI, Italy – Asafa Powell set another world record in the 100 meters, and suspects he can go even faster. In the final, Powell won in 9.78 – with no tail wind. Michael Frater of Jamaica was second in 10.03, followed by Jaysuma Saidy Ndure of Norway in 10.10. “Today I ran like I should have done at the worlds,” Powell said. “At Osaka I was too tense, I was thinking about the race and the time I had to set. Instead, here I was relaxed.” After winning the final, Powell celebrated amid a crowd of photographers on the field of Raul Guidobaldi stadium, throwing a bouquet of flowers into the stands. He also ran a lap of honor, shaking hands with fans and signing autographs. “Me and my coach have been working to getting myself back to normal,” Powell said. “I came here today and I executed properly and did what I was supposed to do.” Powell is only the fourth non-American to hold the 100 world record since 1912. Donovan Bailey of Canada (1996), Armin Hary of West Germany (1960) and Percy Williams of Canada (1930) are the others. Rieti is a fast track on which six middle-distance world records have been set. That was not lost on Powell, who was trying to bounce back from his disappointing performance at the worlds. “It’s a very fast track. I love this track. It’s very bouncy,” said Powell, who trains in Italy three months of the year. “Italy is a good place for me. It’s my second home.” Powell first set the world record of 9.77 in June 2005 in Athens, Greece. Justin Gatlin matched the time in May 2006, but the American faces a suspension of up to eight years following a positive doping test for testosterone and other steroids at the Kansas Relays a month earlier. In June 2006, Powell again ran 9.77, and then did it a third time in August 2006. Despite the fast times, Powell has struggled at major competitions, missing a medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics. At the worlds, he finished behind gold medalist Tyson Gay and Derrick Atkins, running 9.96. The bronze was Powell’s first major medal. “That was a race I had to win and I didn’t. Enough. I lost,” Powell said. “The real Powell is the one from today, not the Osaka one.” Powell had also been one of the favorites at the 2003 worlds, but he was disqualified in the heats for a false start. He missed the 2005 worlds because of a groin injury. Michael Johnson, the world record holder at both 200 and 400 meters, criticized Powell during the worlds last month, saying the Jamaican is “not a great competitor.” Johnson said Powell gave up in Osaka when he was overtaken by Gay in the final 40 meters.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Men’s Soccer Hosts No. 10 Missouri State in Regular Season Finale

first_imgScouting Missouri State The Bears (15-0-0, 9-0-0 MVC) are the only unbeaten and untied team remaining of the 204 Division I schools. Story Links Jack Denton rounds out Missouri State’s firepower by serving as the quarterback of the offense. He has tallied eight assists this season, tops in the conference. Drake fell, 3-1, when the two sides met on Oct. 13 in Springfield. Liam Wilson headed home an equalizer for the Bulldogs just before halftime, but Missouri State responded with two goals late in the game to secure the win. Michael Creek, the Bears’ goalkeeper, leads the Valley with a .603 goals against average and a .769 save percentage. He ranks last in the conference in total saves (30), which is a credit to his backline for limiting opponents’ chances. Print Friendly Version Live Stats WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University men’s soccer team concludes its regular season by hosting No. 10 Missouri State at 1p.m. on Saturday at Tiger Field in West Des Moines. The Bulldogs will honor nine seniors as part of their Senior Day celebration. Offensively they are led by a quartet of potent point scorers. Matthew Bentley leads the Missouri Valley Conference with 12 goals and 27 points this season, and his three assists also rank in the league’s top five. Bentley is joined in the attack by Josh Dolling and Stuart Wilkin, who have posted identical stat lines of five goals, four assists, and 14 points. Those numbers all rank in the top five in the MVC in their respective categories. Luke Anderson also set a new personal best against the Ramblers, recording nine saves to shatter his previous mark of four. He faced the most shots of his career (24) and shots on goal (12), and made three clutch saves in overtime to preserve the result. The Bears lead the Valley in goals scored per game (2.40) and fewest goals allowed (0.60). The Bulldogs return to action after a season-long 13-day layoff following their thrilling 3-3 draw at Loyola on Oct. 27. Austin Smythe enjoyed his best game in the blue and white, setting career highs with two goals, four points, five shots, and four shots on target. His goal in the 87th minute knotted the game at three and eventually earned Drake a point in the standings.last_img read more
