On Sunday March 13, 2022, at approximately 9:34 a.m., Brittalia Semaan, 30, of New Castle, was operating a stolen 2018 Chevrolet Trax southbound on Route 9 in the area of Boothurst Boulevard. At this time, a pedestrian later identified as Joseph Stanavich, 47, of New Castle was walking southbound on the right shoulder of Route 9, just south of Boothhurst Boulevard. The Trax which was traveling at a high-rate of speed, for unknown reasons left the right lane of travel and struck the pedestrian within the right shoulder. After the collision, Semaan fled southbound on Route 9 in the stolen Chevrolet Trax. Semaan was subsequently apprehended in the area of Route 9 and Hamburg Road after a separate collision.
According to FRA statistics, 2,178 highway-rail grade crossing collisions occurred in 2022. There were 273 crossing fatalities and 763 crossing injuries in 2022 across the U.S. Approximately 85% of all 2022 highway-rail grade crossing collisions occurred in these states.
Auto Techcelerators founder and CEO Frank Terlep has made 10 predictions for the collision repair industry in the new year, including continued advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) technology popularity and the closure of thousands of independent collision repair centers.
As RDN previously reported, multiple collision industry voices have found discrepancies between photo-based estimates and what the shops actually detect. The overall point many shops agree on is the inaccuracy of relying on photos for estimates because damage detectable by an in-person human appraiser is overlooked.
While there are multiple reasons why large pools of institutional capital are attracted to the collision repair industry, the overriding reason is Sustainable Cash Flow. In good times and bad times, businesses with historically positive cash flows are attractive to large pools of capital whose primary objective is more predictable returns and lower risk.
So with such strong demand from consolidators old and new, now is a good time for collision repairers to find sponsors to help capitalize their future growth or consider exiting while the demand for acquisitions continues to be robust.
Resulting vulnerability maps reveal that the collision hotspots are particularly concentrated within important migration routes, along coastlines and near breeding locations. These include the Western Mediterranean coast of France, Southern Spain and the Moroccan Coast -- such as around the Strait of Gibraltar -- Eastern Romania, the Sinai Peninsula and the Baltic coast of Germany.
The GPS data collected related to 1,454 birds from 27 species, mostly large soaring ones such as white storks. Exposure to risk varied across the species, with the Eurasian spoonbill, European eagle owl, whooper swan, Iberian imperial eagle and white stork among those flying consistently at heights where they risk collision.
"If we can do a better job of assessing risks to biodiversity, such as collision risk for birds, into the planning process at an early stage we can help limit the impact of these developments on wildlife while still achieving our climate targets.
The researchers combined the sensitivity data with the locations of existing onshore wind farms and power lines to identify where the vulnerability hotspots are for these birds, for example the areas where they are already experiencing high risk of collision due to the presence of wind turbines or power lines.
Mr Gauld added: "Our maps can also help target measures to reduce risks where previously built developments are already causing problems. They highlight the areas where existing energy infrastructure is already providing a source of collision risk for these birds. It is therefore a key conservation priority for additional measures to reduce collision risk are implemented in these vulnerability hotspots.
However, they warn the expansion of renewable energy infrastructure required to achieve this poses a challenge to wildlife conservation due to collision and electrocution risks, particularly for birds.
This collision incident involving bicyclists competing in an athletic event comes six months after two bicyclists competing in the Spring Tour of St. George were killed by an impaired driver on April 9.

The new AC, released Oct. 22, 2022, replaces one from June 2016, with updates regarding additional information regarding pilot actions, procedures, Notices to Air Missions (NOTAM), and aircraft technology to mitigate the risk of a pilot causing or being involved in a ground collision, in-flight collision, or near mid-air collision (NMAC).
I agree! Money well spent. And I lost friends to midair collisions before the advent of ADS-B as well. Is it a panacea? Of course not. Just a very useful tool that can help save lives. Just like eyeballs. Use everything you have at your disposal to avoid disaster, including a flexible mindset.
A lot of it. Old satellites, rocket parts and small pieces of debris left over from previous collisions and messy breakups. Each little piece can cause serious damage to a satellite, larger ones can destroy a satellite and create large amount of new debris.
And worse, the alert meant that the Swarm team was now suddenly racing against two clocks. Another manoeuvre was planned for just a few hours after the potential collision and had to be cancelled to give Alpha enough time to duck out of the way of the debris. That manoeuvre was also very time sensitive and had to be entirely replanned, recalculated and carried out within a day.
Alpha is now safe from a collision with that piece of debris and has completed its climb to safer skies alongside Charlie. But there is lots of debris out there, and this shows with how little warning it can threaten a satellite.
That means knowing when a collision will take place provides a unique opportunity for scientists, Hillwig adds: "The possibility that we could see a system like this, and study it really well beforehand, and then see it happen has the potential to tell us a lot about the physics that's going on with these types of systems."
Continuing the theme of automatic collision avoidance, this powerful option really has transformed 5-axis programming inside PowerMill. Customer feedback has been so positive that the development team decided to extend this same functionality to work with 4-axis and Rotary finishing toolpaths.
"He went belly up to the leader," Wolk said. "That prevents him from gauging distance and position. The risk of collision is very high when you cannot see who you are supposed to be in formation with and that kind of join up is not permitted."
On average, ODOT documents more than 6,000 vehicle collisions with deer and elk each year. The actual number of collisions is likely higher, as many are not reported if there is minimal damage or no human injuries.
ODFW, ODOT and partner organizations are working to reduce the risk of vehicle-wildlife collisions by building wildlife crossings. The crossings allow wildlife to safely follow their migration patterns over or under a road. Data shows wildlife crossings on Hwy 97 near Sunriver have reduced vehicle-wildlife collisions by nearly 90 percent.
As wildlife-vehicle collisions peak, so does participation in ODFW's roadkill salvage program. Since 2019, salvaging deer or elk struck by a vehicle has been legal in Oregon. Salvagers are required to fill out a free online permit available at -salvage-permits
The Gabby G, which had been fishing for whiting, was returning to port when it struck the Norwegian Pearl, which had been bound for Bermuda, according to the Coast Guard. The collision occurred at 2:25 a.m. in rainy conditions about 35 miles southeast of Nantucket.
Because of the speed of light, what the scientists are recording has already happened. "So the actual collision took place just under 9 billion years ago, but we won't be able to see it on earth for 10,000 years," Readhead said.
Most of the answers I can find date to years back where the first collision(s) were found, but hardware mainly GPUs have progressed a lot in the past few years (with for example the new line of 3090s coming).
In particular, we remark that the chosen-prefix collisions for SHA-1 can be generated in under a minute, with an ASIC cluster that costs a few dozen Millions dollars. Such ability would allow an attacker to apply the SLOTH attack on TLS or SSH connections using SHA-1. 781b155fdc
