Las Vegas police install cameras on home that reported 'aliens': Family 'afraid for their safety'
A Las Vegas family reported a crashed UFO and told police they had seen eight- to 10-foot creatures that were '100 percent not human' Las Vegas police are watching the home that reported a "tall, skinny alien creature with greenish color" that was about eight to 10 feet tall in their background last month. Police bodycams from officers in the area caught a glowing, green light streak across the sky from the top right corner until it disappeared in the distance. A family called 911 and claimed it was a UFO that had crashed in their backyard during the overnight hours between April 30 and May 1, and they told the emergency dispatcher that they came face to face with "aliens."Since then, Las Vegas police installed cameras on top of their home because the family is "afraid for their safety," police said in an emailed statement to Fox News Digital.‘CRASHED LAS VEGAS UFO’ WITNESS ‘TERRIFIED BY 8-FOOT CREATES IN HIS BACKYARD: ’100% NOT HUMAN'"After the initial contact with LVMPD, the family at the residence reported they heard noises in their yard and were afraid for their safety," Las Vegas police said. "We offered to put cameras up to help ease their concerns of someone coming to harass or harm them."A glowing green light was captured on a Las Vegas police officer's bodycam at 11:50 p.m.

I-95 collapse to send ripple effect through East Coast: ‘This is not just a commuter challenge’
an elevated section collapsed over the weekend following damage caused by a tanker truck crash. LiveNOW from FOX spoke with Mark Fusetti, a retired police sergeant, who happened to be driving on the fiery section of I-95 Sunday morning moments before the collapse. Fusetti saw dark, black smoke begin to consume the roadway ahead of him and assumed it was coming from a car fire down below. "I did see an opening (in the smoke) where I could drive through and look safely, which I did. And as I drove through, you felt this major bump on the road," he described.He shared video with LiveNOW from the scene, where Fusetti’s vehicle can be seen going through a clearing in the smoke. "After I go through, I look in my rearview mirror and I see that's where all the cars stopped and that’s where I'm told, unofficially, where the highway collapsed right after."Fusetti said that area of I-95 was already under construction, so he didn’t think much when going over the big bump, but that he was in disbelief when he heard what had happened. "Is this normal?"RELATED: Philadelphia I-95 collapse: What you need to know about the damaged highwayIn this handout photo provided by the City of Philadelphia Office of Emergency Management, smoke rises from a collapsed section of the I-95 highway on June 11, 2023 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Was I-95 collapse preventable? Engineering expert explains how the disaster happened
PHILADELPHIA - Plumes of jet black smoke and raging flames fill the skies as large concrete slabs of concrete come crumbling down.That was the scene on Interstate 95 in Philadelphia Sunday morning as an overpass of the critical roadway collapsed after a tanker fire erupted just feet below.The devastating collapse has caused major concerns for commuters and residents, leaving several questions unanswered: how did it happen; was it preventable; can the bridge be re-built?RELATED COVERAGE: Commuter Alert: Alternate routes, SEPTA changes mapped out to avoid collapse on I-95 in PhiladelphiaAmir Yaghoob Farnam, an engineering professor at Drexel University, stopped by Good Philadelphia Monday to break crown the collapse, and answer some of those questions.The engineering expert says after analyzing photos and videos, the collapse was likely  the result of two things that just don't mix well - heat and steel.Farnam says the I-95 overpass was constructed with concrete reinforced by girders made of steel, which is very susceptible to heat."Because of extreme heat, steel can lose 40 to 50 percent of its strength," he explained.A tanker truck fire caused an overpass on I-95 to collapse on Sunday morning. FOX 29's Steve Keeley and Bob Kelly discuss the collapse and its impact on traffic in the area.Heat from the tanker fire below made it impossible for the bridge to carry its load, according to Farnam, who says this incident reminds him of the World Trade Center collapse."It was also a heat problem," he said.
