DuPont Amtrak Crash

Following the tragic crash in DuPont yesterday resulting in 3 deaths and over 100 injuries, there are several detours in place for southbound traffic, including one from Center Drive in DuPont through JBLM and over to state Route 510. Reports are that the crash could have been related to speed, as the train was going 80 miles an hour in a 30 mph zone. It was the first use of the bypass.

New Army Handgun Soon to be for Sale to Public

It won’t be ready in time for Christmas, but the exact version of the Army’s new handgun will be for sale in limited supply in just a few months.

Each of the handguns will have its individual serialized number with a matching coin and certificate of authenticity, Taylor said. Replacing M9 Beretta.
