NATIONAL BRIEFING / AND FINALLY . . .
Police say a Buffalo-area tow truck driver was juggling two cellphones -- texting on one and talking on another -- when he slammed into a car and crashed into a swimming pool in Lockport, N.Y.
Niagara County sheriff’s deputies say Nicholas Sparks, 25, of Burt admitted he was texting and talking when his flatbed truck hit a car Wednesday morning. The truck then crashed through a fence and sideswiped a house before rolling into the pool.
The car’s driver was hospitalized and in good condition.
