A mentally retarded 11-year-old girl won a $14-million medical malpractice suit against a Downey pediatrician Friday when a Norwalk Superior Court jury determined that the doctor failed to diagnose a hypothyroid condition at birth that could have been treated. James and Vicki Liston of Incline Village in the Lake Tahoe area, formerly of Lynwood, filed suit five years ago against the physician and St. Francis Hospital of Lynwood and its laboratory on behalf of their daughter, Jamie.

The 30-year-old lead singer and lyricist of the rock band Snot was killed Friday as he attempted to drive across Highway 101 in this seaside community, the third fatality along that dangerous stretch of highway in the last year. James Lynn Strait died instantly after his 1992 Ford Tempo was broadsided by a southbound full-size pickup truck about noon, officers said. Strait's small bulldog, who was sitting in the back seat, also perished.

Larry Finch, 60, who starred for Memphis State's basketball team when it lost to the Bill Walton-led UCLA Bruins in the 1973 NCAA championship game and went on to coach his alma mater, died Saturday at Saint Francis Hospital in Memphis, a university spokesman said. The cause of death was not immediately known. Finch suffered a debilitating stroke in 2002. Finch had a 220-130 coaching record from 1986 to 1997 and led the Tigers to the NCAA tournament six times. Memphis State is now called the University of Memphis.

Hours after the explosion ripped through her home, the flames searing her clothing and setting her belongings afire, Gayle Masunu watched a telecast of her San Bruno neighborhood. It was in ruins. Her injuries, though, proved to be far less serious — first and second-degree burns, painful but treatable. Masunu was allowed to go home with relatives. For the most desperate cases, however, the road to recovery is long and filled with risk. Serious burn victims can endure multiple surgeries that stretch over months.

A crane toppled from a 16-story building under construction today, raining concrete and twisted steel on the busy financial district. Six people were killed, 21 injured and five left missing, authorities said. The crane flattened a school van and a protective scaffolding over the sidewalk, crushed a taxi and several other cars, and smashed into a 21-story office building across the street as it buckled, swung around and went down. Bystanders fled in terror.

Passengers fled out the back of an Oakland commuter bus Monday after police say a man wearing a kilt was set on fire. The victim, described only as an 18-year-old man, was taken to the burn unit at Saint Francis Memorial Hospital with burns to his legs shortly after he was set ablaze about 5:10 p.m., KTVU-TV reported. The man may have been dozing when the attack occurred as the bus traveled along  MacArthur Boulevard near Ardley Street.  Neither AC Transit spokesman Clarence Johnson nor police could disclose the severity of his injuries, according to the Bay Area News Group.

Breast cancer survivor Taryn Heeber-Doody faced tough choices earlier this year when her doctor felt troubling changes in the tissue of her healthy breast. The doctor suggested a double mastectomy to reduce the chance that the cancer removed six years ago would return to threaten her life. That part was a no-brainer for the Enfield, Conn., paralegal. She was 39 with a husband and two sons; of course, she would do anything to safeguard her life.
