    Elderly Driver Killed, 2 Others Injured in Head-On Crash in Braintree

    An elderly driver was killed and two others were injured Friday morning in a head-on crash in Braintree, Massachusetts, according to the Norfolk County District Attorney's office.

    Police responded to the crash at 10:15 a.m. on Washington Street. A preliminary investigation showed that Catherine Aveni, 94, of Holbrook, was traveling northbound when her Toyota Camry veered into the southbound lane and collided with a Cadillac STS sedan traveling southbound.

    Aveni, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was taken to South Shore Hospital where she later died.

    The driver of the Cadillac and her child had to be extricated and were first taken to South Shore Hospital before being transferred to hospitals in Boston for further treatment. Police said they are expected to survive.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
