JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey sheriff's office has impounded a commuter bus in the first seizure that's part of a new crackdown on the private buses.

Authorities say the driver of a similar bus was on a cellphone when he hit a pole that fell and killed an 8-month-old this week.

A spokesman for the Hudson County Sheriff's Office said officers pulled over a jitney bus Thursday afternoon after it ran a red light and found the driver had a suspended license.

The crackdown was announced Thursday, two days after a bus driven by Idowu Daramola plowed into a pole that fell and killed 8-month-old Angelie Paredes.

Daramola made a brief court appearance Thursday. He's charged with death by auto, reckless driving and using a cellphone while operating a vehicle.

 

POTTSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - A judge has upheld charges against a Philadelphia woman accused of helping her 93-year-old father commit suicide through a morphine overdose.

   Prosecutors in Schuylkill County have charged 57-year-old nurse Barbara Mancini with aiding suicide.

 

   A judge refused to drop the charges after a preliminary hearing Thursday.

 

   Pottsville police say Mancini handed Joseph Yourshaw a bottle of liquid morphine at his home in February, leading to his death four days later.

 

   Mancini remains free on bail. A phone at her lawyer's office rang unanswered Thursday evening and he could not be reached for comment.

 

   An advocacy group called Compassion & Choice supports Mancini and says her father had end-stage diabetes and heart problems.

   The group says the U.S. Supreme Court allows dying patients to receive adequate pain relief, even if it hastens their death.

East St. Louis police are questioning a relative after a 5-month-old girl was allegedly beaten.

Officers say they were called to Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital Wednesday night about a case of possible child abuse. A hospital employee to police the infant had been severely beaten--suffering injuries to her eye, ribs, skull, and brain.

Police say the child was in the care of relatives when she was injured and are questioning that man now.
