Making Headlines:

Deadly takeoffA light plane crashed Monday morning after takeoff from Malta International Airport en route to Libya, killing all five crew members on board, airport authorities said. The plane tipped to the right and slammed into the ground soon after lifting off and burst into flames, eyewitnesses said.

Fatal crash: A memorial is growing in Koreatown in Los Angeles for the victims of the tour-bus crash in Palm Springs, California. Thirteen people, including the bus driver, died and 31 others were injured Sunday morning when the tour bus slammed into a semi.

Safety first: About 500,000 Missourians deer hunt each year. However, the leading cause of injury to hunters has nothing to do with the firearms they carry, but rather from the tree stands they climb. We'll take a closer look at the best safety practices on the Breakfast Show.
