SUV Falls Off Bush Turnpike Overpass, Killing Three teenage Passengers. The 28-year-old driver of the 2003 Tahoe, Charqual McMath, somehow didn't suffer any serious injuries after she swerved to avoid a collision and the vehicle crossed all eastbound lanes, rolled numerous times, hit another vehicle, and fell 60 feet to a parking lot below. SMU Remains Undefeated. It was a struggle against Tulane, but the Mustangs, all the way up to a No. 10 ranking, are the last Division I team without a loss this season. A little bittersweet, since they won't be able to go to the NCAA tournament. But still, pretty solid. Dallas Looking For New Chief Financial Officer. The current CFO, Jeanne Chipperfield, is leaving the post to open an office overseeing ethics and compliance. To replace Chipperfield, the city is kicking off a national search. But I think the best candidate, if I may, is the guy with the dashing salt-and-pepper beard who is writing this blog post. Let's just say I know something about getting things done with no money. Andy Beal Buys the Crespi Estate For $100 Million. The billionaire bought the 25-acre property from Tom Hicks. Last summer, it seemed like it might never sell. Even if I got my parents to co-sign, I don't think I could get a loan for the water bill. ATM Theft Suspect Arrested After Overnight Dump Truck Chase. That's a compelling headline.
