We are now learning the Metro-North train that flew off a curve Sunday morning, just north of Manhattan, was traveling 82 mph in a 30 mph zone. That's faster than the 70 mph speed limit for straight and level track. This was the first wreck in the railroad's history. Jason Carroll has the latest on the investigation.
A storm that's already blamed for at least 12 deaths is causing problems across the country. Some areas could see nearly a foot of snow, while others are dealing with wind, sleet, and heavy rain. Hundreds of flights have already been canceled, just as millions of Americans begin their Thanksgiving getaways. Jason Carroll has the latest.
What do you do if your travel plans are interrupted by the storm? Wolf spoke with Wall Street Journal travel columnist Scott McCartney.
More than two years after police shot and killed Raymond Herisse, his family still has plenty of unanswered questions. Officers stopped him for reckless driving in May 2011, and ended up killing him in a hail of more than 100 bullets. CNN's Jason Carroll has a closer look at what happened, and why the investigation is taking so long.
Major league baseball's highest paid player is fighting to stay in the game. Alex Rodriguez is the biggest name on a list of 13 players all facing major suspensions following an investigation into the use of performance-enhancing drugs. A-Rod is returning to the field tonight, as he appeals his 211 game suspension that could lead to him sitting out the 2014 season.

Tonight on AC360° at 8pmET and 10pmET: CNN's Jason Carroll has an emotional interview with the parents of Robert Champion, a talented college drum major who was killed during a hazing ritual.
What would lead police to shoot and kill an unarmed young mother holding her baby boy in her arms? We flew to Lima, Ohio to find out.
We found a community with a deep distrust of its police force that was brought to the surface with the shooting of Tarika Wilson.
This past January, Lima police stormed Wilson's home with a warrant for her boyfriend who was a suspected drug dealer. Wilson’s family says during the raid, police shot Wilson while she held her 14-month-son in her arms.
Wilson died, and her baby was hospitalized with a gunshot wound to his shoulder and hand. The raid is now under investigation.
Lima has been under scrutiny since the raid. Many people have pointed to racial tension in the town between the residents, many of whom are African American, and police, who are mostly white.
The tension is reflected in emails sent from angry community members to a local newspaper.
Many emails were critical of Tarika Wilson, pointing to the fact she had several children with different fathers. These comments are troubling to her family and supporters. What does her having several children have to do with circumstances surrounding the shooting?
We wanted to speak with Police Chief Greg Garlock about the rift between the community and his force. Garlock initially agreed, but then canceled the interview with no explanation.
To his credit, Lima’s mayor was candid about the problems facing the community, and urged everyone to wait for the results of the investigation.
But the facts remain, Tarika Wilson was unarmed; she's dead; her wounded son is left without a mother; and so far no one has been able or willing to explain why.
