(Reuters) - South Korea's Hyundai Motor Co is recalling about 420,000 vehicles covering three models for separate problems in the United States, after recalling 883,000 Sonata sedans this week, according to U.S. safety regulators. No injuries or accidents have been reported in the latest recall, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said on its website on Friday. Some 225,000 Santa Fe crossover vehicles from the 2001 to 2006 model years are being recalled in 20 cold-weather U.S. states because road salt can cause rust in a coil spring, the NHTSA said. About 133,000 mid-size Sonata sedans from the 2011 model year are being recalled because leaking brake fluid can increase the distance required for a vehicle to stop, adding to the risk of a crash, NHTSA said.
Abigail Hernandez, 15, told the Conway Daily Sun she had seen its coverage of her disappearance and that it gave her hope, the newspaper reported on Friday. Hernandez declined to discuss her case in detail, the paper reported. State prosecutors on Monday arrested a 34-year-old man, Nathaniel Kibby of the nearby town of Gorham, and charged him with felony kidnapping in the incident. "I'm taking it a little at a time but I'm feeling a lot better every day," Hernandez said.
Representative Eric Cantor said on Friday he will resign his seat effective Aug. 18, months earlier than expected following a stunning defeat in a Republican primary election. Cantor, who on Thursday stepped down from his leadership position in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives, said he had asked Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe to call a special election to coincide with November's congressional elections. Cantor, who was elected to the House in 2000 and served as House majority leader since 2011, unexpectedly lost to a Tea Party-backed college economics professor in June.
