Two Indiana high schoolers die in crash on way to prom

Two Indiana high school students were killed and two others injured in a car crash on their way to prom Saturday night, a report said.

Lendon Byram and his girlfriend Kalen Hart have been identified as the victims who died in the two-car wreck near 281st Street and Lacy Road in Hamilton County, the Indianapolis Star reported, citing police.

The other students were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. They were on their way to the Hamilton Heights High School senior prom at the time of the crash, the report said.

Hart was a senior at Hamilton Heights, while Byram was a junior at Cathedral High School.

“My 18 year old daughter, along with her boyfriend, were killed in an automobile accident on her way to prom,” Hart’s devastated mother, Jody Bartrom Conaway, wrote on Facebook.

“No parent should ever have to bury their child,” the mother added.

All prom-related activities were cancelled following the crash, the report said.

The driver of the other car refused medical attention at the scene.

Police are investigating the crash and do not believe drugs or alcohol were a factor.

2-year-old boy shoots parents in Maine home

A 2-year-old boy in Maine shot his parents Wednesday morning with a gun he picked up from a nightstand, a report said.

The toddler’s 25-year-old father was hit in the head, and the mother, 22, was struck in the leg in the shooting at their home in West Bath, WMTW reported, citing Sagadahoc County Sheriff Joel Merry.

The baby was injured by the recoil of the gun, authorities said. All three family members were hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries, according to Merry.

“The question of how the boy was able to pick up and fire the weapon is of great concern and is being investigated,” Merry said, according to the report.

“This situation, while disturbing, could have had an even more tragic ending,” the sheriff said.

Banksy's 'Love is in the Air' auctioned for $12.9M in crypto

A Banksy piece fetched $12.9 million in an auction Tuesday — and the winning bidder will pay for the pricey pop art with cryptocurrency.

The anonymous artist’s “Love is in the Air” is the first physical piece of art sold by a major auction house paid for using crypto, according to a tweet from Sotheby’s.

The protest image — which shows a protester winding up with a bouquet of flowers in hand instead of a molotov cocktail — was sold after a 14-minute bidding battle with four participants, Sotheby’s said.

The auction house announced in March it would auction off a series of non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, which are digital assets that represent ownership of virtual items like art and sports memorabilia.

“Following this restart, it will take several days for the product delivery supply chain to return to normal,” Colonial’s statement said.
