3 killed in North Carolina crash

Three young people lost their lives in a multi-car crash in North Carolina near Middlesex that could have been avoided.

Police officers say that a 22-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man were traveling together in one car. Another car, a Ford Mustang, came speeding along on highway 231 at just the wrong moment. The 22-year-old woman turned into the direct path of the Ford Mustang. The passenger in the Ford, a 25-year-old man, was also killed and the driver, a 20-year old male, was injured.

Physically and legally protect yourself during an arrest

Key facts about hit-and-run traffic charges

Can you notify your spouse about your divorce by Facebook?

In this day of no-fault divorce, the courts no longer need an "acceptable" reason, like bigamy, cruelty or habitual drinking, to let a divorce go through. It's enough to say that you simply don't want to remain married any longer. However, due process still requires that the other spouse be served adequate notice of the divorce and opportunity to respond -- even protest.

That has presented a large number of people with errant spouses a significant problem. They can't very well send their spouses any notices when those spouses have dropped off the map somehow.
