WKMG Click Orlando - A search is ongoing for the driver of a pickup truck who plowed into an Orlando home early Monday, leaving a gaping hole. The crash happened around 3:30 a.m. on Overdale Street at Donnybrook Drive, near Colonial Drive and State Road 417.

The driver then ran away, troopers said. No one was injured in the crash. The owner of the vehicle was interviewed by authorities, but the woman claimed she didn’t know who had her pickup and her roommate was home at the time of the crash.

NBC News - The families of 10 crew members who died when the cargo ship El Faro sank near the Bahamas last year have agreed to take $500,000 each to settle pending lawsuits against the vessel’s owner, TOTE Maritime Puerto Rico.

NBC News - After setting a new record for automobile recalls in 2015, the new year is off to a questionable start, with federal regulators ordering repairs for millions more vehicles equipped with potentially defective Takata air bags. Last week’s announcement by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration came at a time when automakers and automotive regulators alike are trying to change the way they address vehicle safety. A new industry-government consortium is aimed at bringing advanced technology to market faster than would be possible through traditional rule-making.

ABC News - Damage from two destructive Northern California wildfires that killed six and sent thousands fleeing their homes topped $1 billion in insured losses, according to a preliminary estimate by the state’s insurance department. The two fires started days apart in September, burning more than 200 square miles of remote, mountainous territory north and northeast of San Francisco. The preliminary figure announced Monday includes $700 million from a fire centered largely in Lake County that killed four and destroyed nearly 2,000 structures, including some 1,300 homes.

KRON - Three men were arrested Thursday in connection with an insurance fraud scheme that intentionally damaged dozens of cars at auto repair shops in and around Salinas, according to the Monterey County Sheriff’s Office. David Ramirez, 48, Perry Hall, 56, and Martin Lopez, 47, were arrested without incident for their roles in “scratch out” schemes, Deputy Arras Wilson said. The men are suspected of conspiracy to commit a crime, insurance fraud and other alleged crimes, Wilson said. Family members, friends and other associates participating in the scheme would bring their undamaged cars to the shops, where they would be instructed on how to damage the vehicles based on the value, Wilson said.

ABC News - A magnitude-7.1 quake knocked items off shelves and walls in Alaska early Sunday morning, jolting the nerves of residents in this earthquake-prone region. There were no reports of injuries, but four homes were lost to explosions or fire following the quake. Alaska’s state seismologist, Michael West, called it the strongest earthquake in the state’s south-central region in decades. Alaska often has larger or more powerful earthquakes, such as a 7.9 last year in the remote Aleutian Islands. "However, last night’s earthquake is significant because it was close enough to Alaska’s population centers," West said, adding that aftershocks could continue for weeks.
