Car Crash Seriously Injures Winner Over Rep Mark Sanford, Katie Arrington

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — A South Carolina lawmaker who defeated U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford in his re-election bid was seriously injured in a vehicle crash on Friday and will require weeks of recovery and more procedures, a spokesman said.
State Rep. Katie Arrington underwent surgery for her injuries and was recovering Saturday at a Charleston-area hospital, said Arrington spokesman Michael Mule.
According to the Charleston County Sheriff’s Office, Arrington and a friend were traveling southbound on U.S. Highway 17 around 9 p.m. Friday when a vehicle traveling in the wrong direction hit their vehicle.
The driver of the other vehicle died at the scene, according to Sheriff’s Capt. Roger Antonio. The driver of Arrington’s vehicle, a friend identified as Jacqueline Goff of Mandeville, Louisiana, also sustained serious injuries.
Mule said the Summerville Republican sustained a back fracture, as well as several broken ribs, and underwent surgery to remove portions of her small intestine and colon.
Mule said Arrington would need more surgeries, as well as a stent to repair the partial collapse of the primary artery in her legs, and would need to stay in the hospital for two weeks. He told news outlets that Arrington was alert and talking Saturday morning.
“Katie asks for your continued prayers for the deceased and the deceased’s family, as well as prayers for a quick recovery for Katie and her friend,” Mule said in a statement.
Arrington, 47, defeated Sanford in a GOP primary earlier this month, repeatedly highlighting Sanford’s criticism of President Donald Trump. The president himself weighed in hours before polls closed on Election Day to endorse Arrington and denounce Sanford as “nothing but trouble.”
In a tweet Saturday, Trump said his “thoughts and prayers are with Representative Katie Arrington of South Carolina, including all of those involved in last nights car accident, and their families.”
Sanford, a former South Carolina governor, had never lost an election before the June 12 congressional primary, even after a high-profile extramarital affair with a woman in Argentina.
Sanford posted a link to a story about the wreck on Twitter , adding in a post: “Our thoughts and prayers this morning go to Katie Arrington, her family and those involved in last night’s automobile accident.”
In a message posted to Twitter on Saturday, Democratic nominee Joe Cunningham said that he was suspending his campaign until further notice.

While The Police Accused The Family of Suicide Another Family Goes Down The Ridge inAbout The Same Spot

Officials are looking for a family of four after a vehicle was seen sinking into water near the same treacherous area the Hart family fatally crashed into weeks ago. 
A Honda Pilot SUV matching the description of the Thottapilly family's vehicle was seen submerged in the Eel River in Mendocino County around 1 p.m. Friday.
The San Jose Police Department said that might have been the last known whereabouts of 42-year-old Sandeep, 38-year-old Soumya, 12-year-old Siddhanty and 9-year-old Saachi.
The family who was expected to return to San Jose, Calif., on Friday from a road trip to Portland, Ore., was reported missing by a family member on Sunday. 
San Jose Police Department Officer Gina Tepoorten told KPIX 5 the family never made it to their destination, and no one has heard from them since Thursday. 
The water has been too dangerous for divers to search for the family, The Press Democrat reports, but officials will search the river once water levels drop. Last week, a storm dumped 2 to 5 inches of rain on the region. 
Witnesses said the vehicle drove off Highway 101 in rainy weather onto a turnout, and then went over the side, the Democrat reports. 
A few miles south, authorities continue to search for members of the Hart family after their GMC Yukon plunged off of a cliff into the Pacific Ocean. The crash, believed to be intentional, killed at least five members of the eight-member family. A body was recovered Saturday in the vicinity of the Hart crash.

The SUV with The Entire Family of 8 Seems to Have Intentionally Driven off The Clip

Police say that the driver of an SUV carrying a family with several adopted children may have intentionally plunged off a cliff along California's scenic coast last month, according to local news reports.
The family from Woodland, Wash. — Sarah and Jennifer Hart, who was married, and at least three of the couple's six adopted children — was in the vehicle on California's scenic Highway 1 near the city of Westport when it accelerated rapidly off the cliff and fell 100 feet to the rocky shore.
However, Mendocino County Sheriff Tom Allman told KGW-TV that authorities have "every indication to believe" that all six children were inside at the time of the crash.
The Associated Press reports: "The two women, both 38, were found dead inside the SUV, while three of their children — Markis Hart, 19, Jeremiah Hart, 14, and Abigail Hart, 14 — were discovered outside the vehicle. Searchers were looking for Hannah Hart, 16; Sierra Hart, 12; and Devonte Hart, 15."
Investigators have "reason to believe ... that the crash was intentional," Greg Baarts, acting assistant chief of the California Highway Patrol's northern division, told KGW.

This aerial image from Alameda County Sheriff's Office drone video, courtesy of Mendocino County, shows the pullout where the SUV of Jennifer and Sarah Hart was recovered off the Pacific Coast Highway 1, near Westport, Calif.
It is unclear when the crash occurred, but Baarts said the smashed vehicle was found by a passing motorist on Monday, March 26, "three days after social services authorities in Washington opened an investigation that was apparently prompted by a neighbor's complaint that the children were being deprived of food," according to the AP.
"It is safe to report that a felony may have been committed in this case," Baarts said.
KGW reports: "Baarts said items were retrieved from the home during the search, including computers, credit cards, and bank statements. On Sunday morning, [Baarts] said CHP could not confirm that a suicide note was retrieved from the home. But during Sunday night's teleconference with media, CHP said there was no note left behind and no obvious indicator in Hart's home to explain what happened."
In 2011, Sarah Hart pleaded guilty to domestic assault in Douglas County, Minn., after she told authorities "she let her anger get out of control" while spanking her 6-year-old adopted daughter, court records show, according to AP.

In 2014, Portland police Sgt. Bret Barnum and Devonte Hart, 12, hug at a rally in Portland, Ore., where people had gathered in support of the protests in Ferguson, Mo.

The family "often took spontaneous road trips to camp and hike and traveled to festivals and other events, offering hugs and promoting unity," AP says.
Devonte, who is African-American, was photographed in 2014 in Portland, Ore., hugging a white police officer during protests over the police shooting of a black man in Ferguson, Mo. The photo was widely circulated by the AP.
