21 Injured When Metro Rail Train Collides With Car in Los Angeles

Johnny Stevens(LOS ANGELES) -- At least 21 people were injured Saturday after a light-rail rail train collided with a car in downtown Los Angeles, next to the University of Southern California campus, officials said.

Two of the Metro train cars derailed, the Los Angeles Fire Department said.

One person was in grave condition and another was in critical condition, the LAFD reported.

Eight others were hospitalized with minor injuries. The train operator and car driver were among those injured, officials said.

Sgt. Mike Verlich of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said on Saturday afternoon the driver of the car apparently did not obey a "No left turn" sign at a grade crossing.

“From witness accounts what we have is both the train and the vehicle traveling eastbound. There was in improper turn that occurred. The vehicle got wedged between the pole and the train causing the train to dislodge,” he said.

The cause of the accident remains under investigation, according to officials.

Germanwings Crash Co-Pilot Seemed Like a 'Normal Guy,' Fellow Pilot Says

Photo by Adam Berry/Getty Images(DÜSSELDORF, Germany) -- A German pilot who recently flew with the co-pilot accused by French prosecutors of deliberately crashing a Germanwings plane said he seemed like a "normal guy," and he "had plans for the future."

French prosecutors have said co-pilot Andreas Lubitz deliberately slammed the passenger plane into a mountain on Tuesday. Authorities have since said he hid evidence of an illness from his employers, including a sick note that was found torn up inside his apartment in Dusseldorf dated from the day of the crash.

Frank Woiton, a Germanwings pilot, told German TV station WDR that he saw nothing unusual about Lubitz when he flew with him less than a month ago.

"The impression that I got was that he was a normal guy," Woiton said. "He had plans for the future. He wanted to fly long distance flights for Lufthansa."

German State Prosecutor Christoph Kumpa said on Friday that "a torn-up current sick note ... valid for the day of the incident" had been found inside Lubitz's apartment in Dusseldorf, adding that it "would -- according to preliminary evaluation -- support the assumption that the [pilot] had concealed his illness towards his employer and his occupational environment."

Kumpa said the note found indicated Lubitz, 27, "was declared by a medical doctor unfit to work."

The disclosure of torn medical documents at the co-pilot's home came shortly before Germanwings' parent company, Lufthansa, announced that it would be changing company policy to require two "authorized persons" remain in the cockpit at all times during the flight, in light of the finding that Lubitz apparently stopped the captain from re-entering the cockpit and forced the plane to crash.

In addition to the findings suggesting Lubitz was hiding an illness, a search of his apartment in Dusseldorf yielded no suicide note and the city's prosecutor announced that there was no evidence that political or religious factors were involved in the crash.

The New York Times reported that Lubitz sought treatment for vision problems that may have put his future as a pilot at risk, two officials with knowledge of the investigation told the newspaper.

It's unclear how severe the eye problems were but one official with knowledge of the investigation hadn't ruled out that it was caused or enhanced by psychological factors, the Times reported.

ABC News was unable to independently confirm the report.

Dusseldorf University Hospital said Lubitz was a patient there and his last visit was two weeks before the crash. The hospital denied that the treatment was related to depression, but they have handed over all of his medical records to German investigators.

During a news conference on Thursday, the Lufthansa CEO said that Lubitz had undergone a medical examination that included a psychological evaluation before being hired in 2013 but, unlike physicals, mental evaluations are not required annually.

Marco Rubio May Announce Presidential Campaign in Miami

Photo by Robert Giroux/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., may be getting ready to announce his presidential campaign next month.

The Tampa Bay Times reported on Friday that Rubio has reserved the Freedom Tower in Miami for an event on Monday, April 13, which could be the announcement date and site.

An aide to the Rubio told ABC News on Saturday that they still have several options they are looking at, and nothing is final.

If Rubio were to announce on April 13, it would make him the third major Republican contender in the race. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, was the first to announce last Monday, and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., is expected to announced in early April in his home state of Kentucky.

Lonely Bros Can Grow Their 'Wolfpack' With New App

ABC News(LOS ANGELES) -- There’s a new app for bros looking for other bros to hang with, and it could be the salvation of the modern male heterosexual friendship.

It’s called Wolfpack and, yes, it does howl.

The brainchild of Nile Niami, a movie producer turned real estate developer, he said a recently divorced friend inspired him to create the app.

“A lonely guy that lost track of all his buddies because he was married for 20 years and when they got divorced he had … nobody to do anything with,” Niami said.

Women just seem to be better about keeping close friends around than men, he said.

“I think the women, they keep in touch or they have a group of women that they stay close with,” Niami said. “So if anything happens in their life, they would have somebody to talk to."

Here’s how the app works: After users log in, they list their hobbies, interests and a few other details about themselves. Then guys can either sign up to attend a Wolfpack event or create their own, basically a group man date, such as a pick-up softball game or bar meet-up for a drink or a movie night.

Just launched in January, Niami says Wolfpack has 4,000 users so far, mostly in the Los Angeles area. With Wolfpack, users can pick and choose friends, and discard ones they don’t connect with, not so unlike today’s online dating apps, but Niami said Wolfpack is not meant to be a dating app.

“We were very cognizant from the very beginning to make this a manly site,” he said.

One user named Kevin Thomsen said he was married for 10 years, and is recently divorced.

“I used to be on a bowling team... but the bowling team was literally my brother-in-law, and his uncle, and another co-worker of hers,” he said. “And at some point you just kind of had to slice that out and try filling the holes in other ways.”

Thomsen said he tried other apps, like Meetup, but felt that it was too broad to find others with whom to connect.

“There would be people there but not a whole lot that I had things in common with,” he said. “I like to hike, so I thought, ‘Oh, maybe I’ll join a hiking group and make some new friends,’ and no offense to people, but I get there and there’s like a 65-year-old woman, which, awesome that she hikes, more power to her, but we’re not going to go hang out after.”

Wolfpack, which is available for iOS devices, narrows the interest field, letting guys bond over “guy stuff,” however they want.

Restaurants May Lack Healthy Meals for Kids

Jack Hollingsworth/Photodisc/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The “kid’s menu” at your local restaurant may fall short when it comes to nutritious fare, according to a new study that looked at restaurants in two states in the southeastern United States.

Researchers at Virginia Tech looked at nearly 140 children menus from various restaurants in North Carolina and Virginia in a study published Thursday in Preventing Chronic Disease.

Researchers found that even though restaurants offered on average five meal options in the kid’s menu, barely one in 10 menus included at least one healthy option.

While 39 percent of the restaurants reviewed offered fruit, only 23 percent offered fruit without added sugar, and 33 percent of the restaurants offered a healthy drink option.

Although some restaurants turned to milk as their healthy substitute, researchers say only 28.5 percent of the restaurants reviewed offered low-fat or skim milk as an option.

James Bond Film “Spectre” Releases Teaser Trailer

Sony / Columbia(NEW YORK) -- The teaser trailer for Spectre, the next installment in the James Bond series, picks up right where the last film left off.

The trailer opens with the famed 007, played for the fourth time by Daniel Craig, learning some "personal effects" recovered from his ruined family estate and childhood home of Skyfall contain a dark secret of his.

The trailer features some familiar faces - like Naomie Harris, who played Moneypenny in Skyfall - as well as some franchise newcomers, including an eerily silhouetted Christoph Waltz who closes the trailer.

"Welcome James," he says "It's been a long time, and finally, here we are."

Spectre is set to be released November 6. It will be the 24th James Bond film.
