A 62-year-old train engineer who was hospitalized after a train crash and derailment last week in Southern California has died, in the first fatality from the incident that left about 50 people injured, police said on Tuesday. The Feb. 24 crash in Oxnard, California, occurred when a train operated by the Metrolink agency struck a Ford pickup truck. Oxnard police spokesman Miguel Lopez identified the train engineer as Glen Steele and said he died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Steele was transferred in critical condition last week from Ventura County Medical Center to another hospital for more specialized care, a spokeswoman for the Ventura hospital said at the time, without naming the other facility.

Oklahoma House passes bill to use nitrogen gas for executions

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 03/04/2015 - 01:53
By Heide Brandes OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - The Oklahoma House of Representatives passed a bill on Tuesday allowing nitrogen gas as a means of execution, a measure that comes after a troubled lethal injection last year raised questions about how the state executes inmates. The bill, which passed by a vote of 85 to 10, authorizes nitrogen gas as an alternative form of execution if lethal injection is found to be unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court. State Representative Mike Christian, a Republican who authored the bill, has said the process would be painless for inmates and affordable for Oklahoma. I believe the use of nitrogen hypoxia will be the thing of the future once it’s passed in Oklahoma," Christian said.
