A road accident in Swaziland killed 38 girls and seriously injured 20 others who had been on their way to a traditional ceremony where King Mswati III can choose a new wife, pro-democracy activists reported. The accident happened Friday night when their open truck smashed into a car on the road between the tiny kingdom's two main cities, Mbabane and Manzini, en route to the traditional Reed Dance, activists said. "A total of 38 young girls have been pronounced dead, with more than 20 others seriously injured," said Lucky Lukhele, a spokesman for the Swaziland Solidarity Network which campaigns for democracy in the landlocked kingdom within South Africa.

Or Trump will fundamentally disqualify himself in some meaningful way some time soon.
Attorney Mark Lanier said Saturday in an email that Kevin Ward Jr. was killed last year as he walked on a dirt track in upstate New York even though Stewart is one of the world's best drivers. Ward's family sued Stewart this month for unspecified damages, accusing Stewart of gross negligence in the August 2014 accident at Canandaigua Motorsports Park. Stewart's lawyer, Brian Gwitt, said in court papers Friday that Ward was impaired by marijuana and died because he exited his car during the race.
