BURLINGTON, NC (WGHP) – An Alamance-Burlington school system bus was involved in a multi-car crash Wednesday afternoon, according to the Burlington Police Department.

44 Williams High School students aged 15 to 18 were on the bus driven by 28-year-old Michael Maness. Maness is a school system employee and a physical education teacher at Smith Elementary School.

Police say Maness was driving south on NC-62 just past the Hatchery Road intersection when he failed to reduce his speed and struck a 2012 Toyota Camry. Following the collision, the Camry was pushed into the back of a 2015 Chevrolet truck. The Camry and Chevrolet were pulled over due to an independent car attempting to turn left into Flynt Fabrics at 2908 Alamance Road.

Maness told officers he was distracted by a stalled car on the shoulder of NC-62 with several people standing around it who weren’t blocking traffic. Maness realized traffic had stopped once he concentrated on the road and was unable to brake in time hitting the Camry at around 40 mph.

The school bus and Chevrolet truck sustained minor damage in the crash, but the Toyota Camry is a total loss.

Four students claimed to have been injured in the accident and were taken to hospital for “good measures”, with their injuries considered non-critical. The Camry driver suffered minor injuries and was also taken to hospital.

Investigators allege Mannes was the sole contributory driver in the crash and cited him at the scene with the following:

  • Do not reduce speed and avoid a collision

Mannes is due in court on August 12.

INDIANAPOLIS – Dalton Kellett became the first driver to crash on Monday while preparing for the Indianapolis 500, ending a six-day streak without major incident.

Kellett crashed just over 30 minutes from the end of the only two-hour session of track time at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The AJ Foyt Racing driver lost grip while running on the outside lane and spun into the outside wall.

Kellett said his feet hurt after the crash, likely from hitting them on the pedal bulkhead. He was assessed and released from the care center after the accident. The Canadian watched replays of his crash and felt Indy 500 rookie Romain Grosjean played a role because Grosjean pushed him high rather than lining up past Kellett.

“I still feel like next Sunday we’ll be ready to go,” Kellett said.

Team Penske’s Scott McLaughlin had a slight pit lane spin but recovered and got back on track in the only other incident in the only practice this week until “Carb Day ” friday.

TO SLOW DOWN

the power boost that produced record speeds in qualifying gone when the teams swapped their engines for the power plants that will be used in Sunday’s race.

That meant speeds were back to normal, but the Chip Ganassi Racing gang was still the fastest. IndyCar champion Alex Palou paced Monday’s session at 229.441 mph, while poleman Scott Dixon finished second at 229,000 – a considerable drop from the four-lap average of 234.046 mph (376.661 km/h) which he displayed in breaking the 1996 speed record. .

Jimmie Johnson, the seven-time NASCAR champion, was third at 228.381 and his Ganassi teammates Marcus Ericsson fifth and Tony Kanaan 22nd.

Honda riders took the top five places – two-time winner Takuma Sato was fourth fastest – and 11 of the fastest 14 places. Josef Newgarden (sixth), Conor Daly (seventh) and Sage Karam (ninth) were Chevrolet’s best.

A d

“I may not have performed over the weekend, so it’s good to be back here instead of waiting until Carb Day and hoping it doesn’t rain,” Daly said. “I feel good. I love this training day, and just the fact that we can drive is great.

SATO’S APOLOGY

A calmer Marco Andretti forgave Sato for hampering his qualifying attempt on Saturday.

Sato didn’t leave the track after his race, so when Andretti took off he had to slow down as he got closer to Sato’s car. He was livid after the race and his team demanded that it be erased from the books. IndyCar didn’t budge, but Sato was penalized for interference.

“He’s the nicest guy in the world,” Andretti said. “He sent me a paragraph apologizing.”

WILSON BACK ON THE TRACK

Stefan Wilson, the 33rd entered, finally got back on track on Monday after car problems ruled him out during qualifying.

An error during Friday practice led to an engine change ordered by Chevrolet on the #25 DragonSpeed/Cusick Motorsports car. This prevented Wilson from making a qualifying run and he will start the field last on Sunday.

A d

Wilson completed 88 laps on Monday and reached 224.305 mph.

THEY SAID IT

jimmy johnson used a wonderful stop on Sunday to stop his side race car to crash during his qualifying race. The move impressed his fellow contestants and Daly said he texted Johnson later that night to tell him.

“I said his new nickname is Jimmie ‘Drift King’ Johnson,” Daly said. “He replied at 6.45am this morning saying his name was ‘Diaper Changer’ Johnson. Sounds less exciting than I imagined, but he is a father to many children, so I understand.

Johnson has two daughters.

GM last year announced plans to play a bigger role in Europe.

In November, the automaker announced it was appointing Mahmoud Samara, a Cadillac sales executive, as president and general manager of GM Europe.

“His mission is to transform our current operations into a non-traditional mobility startup in the region,” GM said, adding, “We will be making very deliberate decisions about where and how we compete in Europe.”

Samara is based in Zurich and reports to Steve Kiefer, senior vice president and president of GM International.

A spokesperson for GM Europe said via email Wednesday that the automaker would release more details about its revamped operations in Europe.

“Together with his team at our headquarters in Zurich, he is preparing for this launch, leveraging new initiatives and technologies that GM provides for global growth opportunities,” the spokesperson said of Samara.

Samara led much of Cadillac’s transition to electric vehicles last year. He said the growing European market for electric vehicles presents a significant opportunity as GM rolls out its portfolio of electric vehicles and autonomous vehicles.

“Over the coming months, our team will develop our plans to bring our best products and services to customers in Europe,” he said in a statement last year. “Our business will expand into major European markets.”

“We have big aspirations in Europe because it’s the second-largest and fastest-growing market for electric vehicles,” he added, noting that GM is investing $35 billion in electric cars. and batteries in the world.

Gosling’s character, simply referred to as “Driver”, works as a mechanic during the day and as a stuntman afterwards. If that wasn’t enough, Driver is a calm and calculated getaway driver at night. Viewers have a feeling that Driver’s stunts are where he wants to be, which is on the Los Angeles entertainment scene.

Many of us like fun things. Many of us also love funny cars. That said, it’s amazing how many automakers seem to ignore this. The arrival of the Chevrolet Groove in the Middle East, however, is an indicator that this particular company may have come into existence.

This new kid on the block is a small SUV (or subcompact, as connoisseurs like to call them) with a reasonable engine that seems to want the driver to experience one emotion: fun. And that’s not an insult.

Chevrolet is clear on who it hopes to buy the Groove, with marketers talking about offering young drivers “an affordable SUV without compromising on technology, design or performance”.

The car was first unveiled at the New York International Auto Show in 2007, as a concept. But this particular vehicle and the latest version have little in common.

For 2022, the Groove is available in two trim lines, the LT and the Premier, and you won’t have to be Einstein to figure out which trim is higher.

At first glance, the prominent three-line grille (adorned with what is known as the Chevrolet bow tie) gives the vehicle a decidedly sporty appearance. This is further underlined by the black side mirrors and the standard roof rails.

THE SPECIFICATIONS

Engine: 1.5 liters

Transmission: 6-speed automatic

Able: 110 horsepower

Couple: 147Nm

Price: From MAD 59,700

On sale: now

These days, design similarities between cars produced by the same manufacturer are sometimes referred to as corporate styling patterns, and to that end, the Groove’s front end blends seamlessly with its Chevrolet siblings. That’s not a bad thing, and many would agree that it trumps a few of its competitors when it comes to looks.

The Groove is a bit underpowered for a car its size, and you can’t help but think a turbocharger would have been a welcome addition for those times when you need a little more punch. Performance shouldn’t be an issue if you’re happy to ride, but it won’t serve you well if you like going full throttle on a track.

However, when you get behind the wheel, the car proves pleasantly quite nimble on city roads. Soundproofing is impressive in a vehicle without the monster truck proportions of all those highway-ripping big SUVs, so you don’t get any sense of panic when weaving around the aforementioned bulkier vehicles. One word you could use to describe it is crafty.

That corporate style we mentioned earlier is also evident when you first enter the cabin, with much of the interior matching Chevrolet’s other offerings. The Groove is roomy enough for five people, and the red stitching, panoramic sunroof and leather steering wheel (along with the usual bells and whistles) all give the impression of an above-average vehicle.

The eight-inch touchscreen is standard on LT and Premier models and comes with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The automaker’s infotainment system is rather simpler to use than those provided by some other automakers, and the four (LT) or six (Premier) speakers that make up the sound system are decent enough.

The Groove will serve as a very respectable vehicle for those looking for a budget SUV that won’t give credit cards a pounding at gas stations, it’s well worth the consideration of those looking for a stylish, inexpensive ride. with a good range of technologies.

We said this was meant to amuse, and there will likely be more than a few who agree.

What do you get when you add nine car thieves, five Chevrolet Camaros, a helicopter and a whole bunch of police cars? You get a wild and ridiculous chase. This high-speed chase is precisely what happened on the streets of Lansing, Michigan. The chase ended with nine arrests and authorities recovered the muscle cars. So what led to a madcap car chase involving five Camaros and all the police cars the pursuit agencies could muster?

How did the thieves recover the cars?

Nine men entered a Lansing, Michigan General Motors (GM) plant and left with five Chevrolet Camaros under cover of darkness. However, they did not leave without drawing attention to themselves. By early morning, authorities had a lookout (BOLO) for missing sports cars and thieves.
