    One person was transported to a hospital in Dallas Wednesday night after a driver lost control and caused a chain-reaction crash, sheriff's deputies say.

    The crash happened at about 10:20 p.m. in the southbound lanes of Stemmons Freeway, just before the Inwood Road exit.

    Dallas County sheriff's deputies believed one of the cars involved swerved to avoid hitting an object on the freeway and collided with another vehicle, which then caused other vehicles to crash.

    Video captured at the scene showed a silver sedan flipped upside down. A total of five vehicles were involved in the incident.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
