An argument between a 15-year-old girl and her mother turned deadly on Monday evening, when the teen jumped from a moving vehicle to her death.

According to authorities, the girl and her mother were in a heated discussion while on a Texas freeway just before the tragic incident. Authorities say the victim (whose name has not yet been released) landed in a nearby lane before she was hit and killed by another car. 

“She was struck by a different vehicle that did not stop,” said Thomas Gilliland of the Harris County Sheriff’s Department. “ A lot of folks were very traumatized with what happened.” 

Officials are now looking for the person who fled the scene after running over the victim. 

“We need to find that person and find out what happened,” said Gilliland. “Maybe they didn’t realize, but once they did strike [the girl], they should’ve realized it was a body and not debris or something. You may not have had time to stop, but once you run over a person, you really should stop.”

Republicans promise to put up a “hell of a fight” against this Biden plan

President Joe Biden has been touting a huge infrastructure plan that he feels can gain bipartisan support, but Republicans are saying not so fast. 

On Tuesday, Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell promised that he and other Republicans would stand against the plan. He even went as far as to say that the GOP would put up a “hell of a fight” to ensure the plan was not put in place. 

But Biden and Democrats are adamant that the multi-trillion-dollar plan is needed, and while it should be supported by all parties involved, they are willing to use reconciliation, which would override Republicans in the Senate and allow Biden’s plan to pass.  

“There is a process by which they could pass this without a single Republican. But we’re going to make it hard for them,” McConnell explained while acknowledging the reconciliation process. “I don’t think we’ve had a bigger difference of opinion between the two parties,” he added. 

What else do we know about the disagreement over the infrastructure plan and the GOP’s plans to derail it?

What was the first case of expulsion by impeachment in the U.S. Senate?

On this day in 1797, the U.S. Senate voted to impeach and expel Senator William Blount of Tennessee for disloyalty to the United States.

But what, exactly, does that mean?

In 1790, George Washington appointed Blount as governor of Tennessee; later, the state would choose Blount as one of its first two senators. Blount was an avid land speculator, which led to some serious financial difficulties…

And eventually, those difficulties would lead to treason.

How the next West Coast heat wave will differ from the last one

The setup for the coming heatwave will be different from what unfolded in the Pacific Northwest and western Canada from June 29 to July 2. A heatwave occurs when a system of high atmospheric pressure moves into an area and hunkers down for several days.

In the last heatwave, the high pressure was centered over Oregon and Washington state,, an unusual scenario that triggered anomalously high temperatures in a region where most homes and businesses don’t have air conditioning systems.

With this next one, the dome of pressure is expected to be over the Four Corners region. The heat is forecast to bleed across the West Coast, pushing all the way up into Washington state. Still, it is expected to center around Las Vegas, Arizona, southern Utah, Southern California, and Idaho. This is a more typical scenario that occurs in summer, and it resembles the mid-June heat event that was also centered in the Southwest and impacted California
