    Ali Wins Best Supporting Actor at Academy Awards

    Will the 89th Academy Awards be a parade of political speeches or landslide for "La La Land"? Probably both.

    A Marine stationed at Fort Meade was killed when he was struck while riding his motorcycle in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, on Friday.

The crash occurred on Patuxent Road, near Conway Road, in Gambrills. When officers arrived on the scene, the driver, Martin Martinez Ballinas, 28, of Crofton, fled. Police were able to arrest Ballinas, who was hiding in a nearby quarry, a short time later. A passenger in the car, Kevin Velasquez, 22, of Crofton, was also injured.
