4-year-old son of Bay Area news anchor mauled by large dog

Many television viewers in the Bay Area will recognize Veronica De La Cruz, a staple on the KPIX local news hour and "Bay Area Nightbeat." She has a 4-year-old son, and recently when they were visiting a family friend, De La Cruz's son was mauled by the friend's dog. The dog's breed is a rarer one, called a Catahoula cur. These dogs routinely weigh in around 40 to 90 pounds, and they are usually around two feet tall. In other words, these are bigger, more powerful dogs.

2016 saw most motor vehicle accident deaths since 2007

It is easy to forget that there was once a time when the motor vehicle accident fatality rate was incredibly bad. It was not an uncommon sight to see the rate above 50,000 deaths per year from 1966 to 1980. For the most part, the rate stayed in the 40,000s, which by today's standards is an incredibly high number. Lawmakers and safety advocates would be enraged if the number was that high.
