Latest from Tim Tompkins

    A crash involving an overturned truck hauling debris closed all southbound lanes of I-95 for hours today.  All lanes have since reopened. The Florida Department of Transportation says a bridge inspection team has found there was minor damage to the overpass, and it is safe for travel.   Florida Highway Patrol says a portion of the scrap metal inside the truck hit the underside of the overpass, causing debris to fall on the road. At least one car hit the debris.  FHP says the driver of the truck failed to safely negotiate a curve onto the on ramp to SB I-95, causing the truck to overturn and spill debris all over southbound lanes of the highway.  Two additional vehicles were unable to avoid hitting the debris.  The drivers of those vehicles were transported to the hospital with minor injuries.  The truck driver, who is from Lake City was cited for careless driving.

  • Facing numerous questions about his past work record, White House physician Rear Admiral Ronny Jackson withdrew from consideration for VA Secretary on Thursday morning, calling a variety of claims about him, ‘false and fabricated.’ “If they had any merit, I would not have been selected,” Jackson said in a written statement. “I am regretfully withdrawing my nomination,” Jackson said in a written statement. Jackson’s nomination had been in peril all week, as allegations piled up against him, and his confirmation hearing on Wednesday had been postponed indefinitely.

Susan Collins (R-ME). GOP lawmakers quickly said the President needed to find a VA nominee who was familiar with the troubles confronting the massive federal agency. “The next VA Secretary must have the experience and commitment needed to continue that progress,” said Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN). “We owe it to those who have served our country.”
