    Teen With Learner Permit at Wheel During Fatal Crash

    Police say an 18-year-old girl was killed when a car flipped and crashed into trees in Burnham, Maine.

    Police say she was a passenger in a car with two boys when the crash happened Saturday night.

    WABI-TV reports that police believe inexperience may have played a factor. Jeffrey Trafton of the Waldo County Sheriff's Department said the driver had only a learner's permit.

    The two boys were hospitalized. WABI-TV said an investigator will speak to them when their condition improves.

    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.
