iStock/Thinkstock(BIRMINGHAM, Ala.) — An Alabama woman managed to escape from a reported robbery and kidnapping incident on Tuesday by jumping out of the trunk of a moving vehicle, police said.

The woman told police that she was walking to her apartment in Birmingham, Alabama, when an unknown man approached her with a gun and demanded money, the Birmingham Police Department said in a statement Wednesday.

The unidentified woman told police that the suspect forced her to get into the trunk of a car after she told him that she did not have any money.

After the suspect drove to a gas station and convenience store in Birmingham, the woman was able to open the trunk and escape just as the vehicle was starting to pull away, police said. She then ran inside and called 911 for help.

The victim, 25, suffered minor injuries when she jumped out of the car, according to ABC News affiliate WBMA-TV.

Police are still searching for the suspect, and circulated an image of the man based on the gas station’s surveillance footage.

A west Texas native, Mark moved to Austin, Texas in the 90s and has since been quite comfortable living in the live music capitol of the world. In the summer of 2006, Mark released his first solo album, Get It On and hit the road touring full time.

Mark snagged his first Number One spot on the Texas Music Chart and TRRR in early 2013 with “She Ain’t Leavin’,” the debut single off of his latest album, Standing My Ground. Later that year, the second single from the album, “Stolen Cash,” made its way up to Number One on the charts. The song was inspired by much time spent in Port Aransas, Texas, a town McKinney considers to be his second home. It was written while staying at Seashell Village Resort, McKinney’s favorite of all Port Aransas hotels, and infamous getaway and writing retreat for many Texas songwriters. Seashell Village is also home to Third Coast Theater, a place many deem to be the best place for Port Aransas live music.

With four studio albums, Fifteen Top 10 hits on the Texas Country Charts, an ever-growing fan base, and favorite entertainer of the Texas music scene, Mark McKinney is a force to be reckoned with, and has no plans of slowing down any time soon. Mark’s brand new album, World In Between released in January of 2017, has already received much critical acclaim.

Police say no evidence of criminal activity involved in crash at train crossing

No Comments

By Louis Milman

moodboard/Thinkstock(BILOXI, Miss.) — Police in Mississippi say that they have found no evidence to suggest any criminal activity related to the train-bus crash earlier this month that left four people dead.

In a statement Wednesday night, the Biloxi Police Department said that the driver, Louis Ambrose Jr., 60, was an employee of Echo Tours. Ambrose is believed to have been en route to Boomtown Casino, and police say that “it doesn’t appear he was familiar with the area.”

The investigation into the crash remains ongoing, police noted.

On March 7, a casino charter bus driven by Ambrose got stuck while traveling over a hump at a train crossing. The crew of a CSX train attempted to stop when it spotted the bus, but was unable to avoid the collision.
