Akron assistant coach Arrington dies in car accident
He was 44. “I can’t put into words how tragic this is,” head coach Terry Bowden said. “We have lost someone who was truly special and had dedicated his life to guiding young men. Tank was a very good friend and a great person. My thoughts are with his family and those who had the chance to know him and play for him. In all my years of coaching I have never known someone who loved and cared for his players more than Tank. I have lost a best friend and I’m heartbroken.” Arrington, who was in his second season on Bowden’s staff, came to Akron after six seasons at North Alabama. “The Zips family has suffered a great loss,” athletics director Tom Wistrcill said.

Charges filed after woman survives car crash, dies in second accident
Fire crews from Aldridge and Bloxwich were called to the scene at about 10.20am yesterday but as the water was so murky they could not see whether anyone was in the vehicle so a firefighter dived in to check. However the freezing temperatures meant he would only stay in the canal for a few minutes, so a water rescue team from the fire services Perry Barr station was drafted in. Paramedics and the air ambulance were also called, while the West Midlands Police helicopter was on standby in case an infra red search was needed. Fire crews managed to winch part of the vehicle out of the water and confirmed no-one was inside. The canal bed was then searched in case anyone had fallen out. Within about an hour the search was called off as the emergency services were satisfied nobody was in the canal. The car had been driven about 100 yards down a track to the canal off Sneyd Lane. Watch commander Steve Palmer, of Aldridge Fire Station, said: When we got the call we were told there were bubbles coming to the surface, so it had only just gone in the water. The water rescue team managed to break one of the cars windows but they still couldnt see if there was anyone there. One of the lads got in there while it was still partially submerged and managed to tell there was no-one in there.
