A female skydiver was killed when she drifted onto a busy California highway and collided with a semi-truck. The 28-year-old woman died when her parachute drifted over a busy highway and she was hit by a truck in Lodi, California on Thursday afternoon.

The unidentified woman was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Fresno Bee.

The fatality sparked chain reaction accidents that caused a 4-hour traffic jam on Highway 99 in northern California. The woman was attempting to return to Skydive Lodi Parachute Center in Acampo when she was killed.

Winds were blowing at 17 mph at the time of the incident, according to the NY Daily News. The winds were strong enough to prevent light aircraft from landing at a nearby airport.

"I drove by and saw the truck pulling over. There was a body lying on the (pavement)," Rich Edwards told the Fresno Bee. "I saw a [parachute] on the road and a bunch of people."

One person was killed and 4 others are in critical condition after a church bus carrying a church youth group overturned on busy Camp Creek highway in Atlanta on Thursday afternoon.

Girl Scout cookies

An enterprising Girl Scout who set up shop outside a marijuana dispensary in San Francisco sold 117 boxes of cookies in 2 hours.

The reason for the whopping cookie sales is simple: the THC in marijuana boosts Dopamine in the brain. The increase in Dopamine gives weed smokers the munchies for cookies and other sweets.

Some might see gorging on cookies as a harmless side effect of weed smoking. But a recent study shows that traffic accidents have increased 300% in cities where marijuana is legal.
