Mercedes driver smashes into garage

first_img The driver was taken into custody on suspicion of driving under the influence, Jensen said. WHITTIER – A drunken driver was probably feeling hungover Thursday after crashing his Mercedes into a parked car and the garage of a home in an unincorporated area near Whittier, authorities said. The collision occurred at 2:10 a.m. in the 14200 block of Lanning Avenue, said Sgt. Douglas Jensen of the Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s Norwalk Station. The Mercedes hit a car parked on the street before crashing into the garage of a home, he said, adding that no one, including the driver, was hurt in the incident. A witness at the scene said that the car, a brand-new Mercedes with paper plates, struck a Nissan on the street before crashing into the garage. 165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter.

SNOW ON THE WAY FOR DONEGAL TONIGHT, SAY FORECASTERS

first_imgArdara in the snow last monthSNOW is on the way to the hills of Donegal tonight, say weather forecasters.There may be an interval of heavy wet snow at fairly low elevations but hills will more certainly see a coating of 3-5 cms, says the most reliable online forecaster Irish Weather Online.“Later on some mixed sleety showers could feed in from the Irish Sea and in north Mayo from Donegal Bay,” says the forecast. “Snow could fall on higher terrain but lower down it’s more likely to be hail or sleet. Very cold with highs 3-6 C and feeling closer to -1 C due to northeast winds 40-70 km/hr.“To summarize, the conditions will range from dry in about 20% of locations to wet (only rain) in about 50% with other places seeing hail, sleet or snow. Best bet for heavy snow would be higher parts of Dublin, Wicklow, the inland southeast and hills in Donegal and Mayo.”If you’re out and about over mid-term, tomorrow, Monday looks like the best day of the week.It will be cold – 4C to 8C – but the winds will slacken and it will be a calm, bright day. However Tuesday is set to be horrible, with lashing rain and 80km/hr winds at times, with the north of the county set to be hit by even  higher winds from the north-east. SNOW ON THE WAY FOR DONEGAL TONIGHT, SAY FORECASTERS was last modified: February 14th, 2016 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalsnowWarningweatherlast_img read more
