Five people died and six were injured Monday when a church van rolled over on Interstate 70 in southern Illinois, according to the Fayette County Sheriff's office. The incident is being treated as a “single-vehicle accident,” Deputy Sheriff Shawn Carter told the Los Angeles Times by telephone. The cause of the accident, which occurred at about 10 a.m., is still under investigation, he said. It does not appear to be weather-related, the deputy said. Among the six injured was the driver, Carter said.

With the strokes from three gubernatorial pens, Vermont on Monday became the fourth state in the country to allow doctors to prescribe lethal medication to terminally ill patients. Gov. Peter Shumlin signed the measure in a state House ceremony in Montpelier, capping a decade-long effort on the issue in Vermont. Vermont is the first state to pass such a law through the legislative process. Oregon and Washington enacted their laws by referendum; in Montana, it was legalized by the courts.
