Authorities say a 15-year-old is in critical condition Monday after being shot in the neck by a police officer following a car chase near Miami.

Miami-Dade police chased the vehicle this weekend and the teen's car crashed into a fence. The occupants ran. Police say an officer shot the teen as he was holding a Glock handgun.

Police say a woman was pushed to her death in front of a subway train by a homeless man at New York's Times Square station. Authorities say 61-year-old Simon Martial fled but later turned himself in and has been charged with murder. They say the 40-year-old victim lived in the city and was waiting for a southbound R train Saturday morning when she was shoved. A second woman told police the man had approached her minutes earlier and she feared he would push her onto the tracks. The killing came little more than a week after the mayor and governor announced plans to boost subway policing and outreach to homeless people.

Environmental protesters are once again demanding the cancelation of plans for lithium mining in western Serbia. They took to the streets again Saturday in the Balkan nation, blocking roads and, for the first time, a border crossing. Traffic on Serbia's main north-south highway was halted by the protests for more than an hour, along with several other roads throughout the country, including one on the border with Bosnia. The road blockade by banner-holding protesters briefly prevented people from crossing the border with Bosnia. Environmental groups want Serbia's populist government to fully abolish plans by the Rio Tinto company to build a lithium mine in western Serbia. Environmental issues are becoming a rising concern in Serbia due to air, water and waste pollution.

Authorities say a pilot and a passenger are presumed dead after the crash of a helicopter in a south Louisiana marsh. Authorities in coastal Lafourche Parish say they got a call from a person who saw the helicopter going down Friday morning. The wreckage was found Friday afternoon and and officials say most of the helicopter was submerged in the marsh. No bodies were immediately recovered as of Friday afternoon. The Coast Guard said a privately held helicopter operator, Rotocraft Leasing Co., had alerted the agency that the aircraft was overdue with two people aboard. The company had no immediate statement on the crash. 

A lawyer for ex-Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs’ girlfriend says he’ll appeal a Las Vegas judge’s decision to grant prosecutors access to the woman’s medical records after a fatal high-speed crash that cost Ruggs his spot on the team. Attorney Peter Christiansen’s appeal would block access to Kiara Je’nai Kilgo-Washington’s records until the question is settled. Christiansen maintains Kilgo-Washington isn't charged with a crime and her health information is protected by federal and state laws. Another judge previously granted prosecutors access to Ruggs’ medical records. He's charged with felony DUI causing death and substantial injury. He remains on house arrest pending a preliminary hearing March 10.

Travel in the second half of 2021 was a chaotic mess in many capacities, with canceled flights, long delays and other interruptions. It wasn’t uncommon for travelers to find themselves among the mob of people hovering over the customer service counter, jockeying against everyone else to get rebooked on the last remaining seats on alternative flights. One strategy to lessen the odds of such havoc: Travel during shoulder season instead. Besides avoiding crowds, there are other attractive reasons to skip travel during busy periods, such as lower prices, more choices and possibly better weather.

Italy on Thursday marks the 10th anniversary of the Costa Concordia cruise ship wreck off the Tuscan island of Giglio. There are some key dates in the saga, including the trial of the captain and the remarkable engineering feat to right the liner from its side so it could be towed away for scrap. It all began on Jan. 13, 2012, when the Costa Concordia slammed into a reef off Italy’s Giglio island after its captain, Francesco Schettino, ordered the ship taken off course and brought it close to shore in a stunt. It came to rest on its side offshore. After weeks of searches, rescue crews confirmed that 32 people had died.

Federal investigators have been poring over the wreckage of a medical helicopter a day after it crash-landed without loss of life next to a church in a residential area of suburban Philadelphia, somehow avoiding a web of power lines and buildings. Brian Rayner, senior safety investigator with the National Transportation Safety Board, told reporters Wednesday that investigators hoped to be able to remove the wreckage from the scene at Drexel Hill United Methodist Church in Upper Darby later in the day for more detailed examination off-site. Rayner said he was very grateful that the occupants were “relatively unhurt” in the 1 p.m. Tuesday crash.
