Call off the search party, we might have found her. 

That's right, scientists believe that they may have found the body of Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic ocean and the woman at the heart of one of aviation's greatest mysteries. Missing for nearly 80 years, Earhart has long been thought to have died in a plane crash in 1937, but new evidence has revealed that she may have landed safetly and died as a castaway on the island of Kiribati.

The development in the case came when re-analyzed a partial skeleton found on the Kiribati in 1940. While these bones had been ruled out in the 40s, scientists now say that these bones were “consistent with a female of Earhart’s height and ethnic origin.” More recently, anthropologist Richard Jantz noticed that the skeleton's forearms were larger than average. Of course, without Earhart around to measure, determining the size of the pilot's forearms would be difficult. 

Analysists at TIGHAR (The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery) used photograpic analysis to determine the size of Earhart's forearms. What'd they discover? The estimated size of Earhart's forearms and the size of the skeleton's were nearly identical. 

Case closed? Well, not exactly. It doesn't definitively prove what happened to Earhart, but it's definitely something.

Two things that really got me going here: One, it's almost like he thought by showing the police he was playing Pokémon GO! that he thought it'd be all chill after. Second, I'm pretty sure he was still trying to catch whatever it was that got him in the accident, after being confronted by the cops for CRASHING into a cop car! Sheesh, man. Come on.

The driver of this truck overcorrected after slightly hitting the other side of the bridge railing. This scary video shows the dashboard view and later inside the truck as it punches through the concrete barrier and lands in a park below.

Thankfully, no one was hurt. The park was unoccupied at the time and the driver, who was ejected from the truck, managed to survive after a few weeks of intensive care.

It's not every day that your life is saved by delicious, steamy pockets of junk food.

But that is exactly what happened to one Ohio man who's craving for a Hot Pocket sent him out of his apartment and away from an airplane crash that killed nine people.

Jason Bartley's apartment building burst into flames Tuesday when a twin-engine charter plane crashed into it. He would have normally been home at the time, but he had left to the store to buy some Hot Pockets.

"Really, I guess it was dumb luck," Bartley told NBC News.

Others nearby were lucky as well.

A teen who lived in the same apartment complex as the crash inadvertently captured the sound of the crash while she was filming a Snapchat video.

She lived in one of two apartment buildings at the complex that were not affected.

A GoFundMe has been set up for Bartley who only has his car and the clothes he was wearing at the time.

No one was in the 4-unit building at the time of the crash.

A fiery airplane crash in Ohio that killed all nine passengers on board was captured by one teen who just happened to be on Snapchat at the same time.

Paige McVeigh was in her Akron apartment when she captured and tweeted her reaction to the plane crash, which happened in another part of the complex she lives in.

The teen can be seen hearing a loud noise, looking toward a bright light and yelling "Oh my God!" before the video ends.

WJW reports that the small airplane crashed about two miles away from Akron Fulton International Airport.

All nine people on board, two pilots and seven passengers, died on impact. No one was in the portion of the apartment building that was hit at the time of the crash.

Don't ever split a cab with this guy.

Get it?????????????????

Local Florida news channel WFLA says a 20-year-old suffered 'non life-threatening' injuries when he destroyed a car in just about the most complete way possible.

Winter Haven Police say the crash happened Tuesday just before 7 p.m. when Carlos Pino, 20, was traveling westbound along Cypress Gardens Blvd. At the curve near Interlochen Blvd., police say Pino lost control of his silver 1986 Nissan 300ZX and started to slide on the wet roadways as he negotiated the curve.

Pino overcorrected losing control of the vehicle and he started to skid sideways. Ultimately, the vehicle left the roadway striking a tree with the driver's side front wheel and quarter panel. The impact of the crash caused the vehicle to split in two with the front engine compartment on one side of the tree and the vehicle's cab with Pino buckled in coming to a rest on the opposite side of the tree. There were no other vehicles involved in the crash.



I mean, just look at this nonsense.







I feel like I have life-threatening injuries just looking at these pictures.

We have a word of warning for Mr. Pino:

Don't trust anyone who calls themselves 'Mr. Glass'.
