Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Wrong Way Crashes Puzzle Police
Columbus police and state transportation officials are taking a closer look at a handful of recent head-on collisions on Central Ohio interstates. The investigation seeks to determine how and why more drivers are getting on limited access highways and traveling the wrong direction. Police spokeswoman Sherry Mercurio says officers are making a priority of 9-1-1 calls from motorists reporting drivers going the wrong direction in the hope of stopping drivers before a crash occurs. Bruce Ward of the Ohio Department of Transportation says traffic engineers are also taking note, but he says the crashes are so random that no conclusion has been reached regarding whether drivers are confused over ramps or signage.
