Local news

Taryn Campbell sat at the wheel of her Ford Flex, grinding along in stop-and-go traffic on the 91 Freeway. That was when she heard the “loud popping sound.”

“It startled me. I saw the window had been cracked,” Campbell said. “The car behind me was two lengths back, so I knew I hadn’t been rear-ended. Something had flown through the window.
