On the eve of the Southern Section 1 p.m. announcement on Friday of the teams that will be selected for the new Open Division, here's my prediction if the committee decides to pick 16 teams. Mater Dei, Loyola, Etiwanda, Corona Centennial, Chino Hills and Long Beach Poly from 1AA. Riverside North and El Toro from 1A. Redondo and St. John Bosco from 2AA. Compton from 2A. Cathedral from 3A. Bishop Montgomery and Gardena Serra from 4AA. Sierra Canyon from 4A. That's 15. The last team will be Mayfair, Rancho Cucamonga or Chaminade.

California Highway Patrol officers arrested a big rig driver who authorities said fled on foot after being involved in a fatal multi-vehicle crash early Thursday in Ontario. CHP officials said officers spent several hours searching for the man, eventually tracking him down at his home in Fontana, where he was arrested. His name was not immediately released. The crash was reported about 2:11 a.m. at Etiwanda and San Bernardino avenues, just north of the 10 Freeway, the CHP said. Authorities said the big rig was traveling north on Etiwanda Avenue, ran a red light and collided with two vehicles traveling west on San Bernardino Avenue.
