SODA SPILLS, FREEZES ON PA. ROAD WHEN RIGS CRASH: READING, Pa. (AP) — Everyone knows soda can be bad for your teeth. Sometimes, it can apparently threaten the morning commute, too.

Police say two tractor-trailers collided on U.S. Route 422 outside Reading, Pa., around 12:40 a.m. Tuesday. The Reading Eagle reports one of the trucks was carrying 2-liter bottles of soda.

Hundreds of gallons of sugary drink spilled onto the highway and froze in the frigid early morning temperatures. Those slick conditions from the crash ended up shutting down the roadway in Exeter Township for more than five hours.

Traffic was detoured until the road reopened shortly after 6 a.m.

POLICE ARREST INTOXICATED ZOMBIE SHOUTER: CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Police in Clarksville have arrested a man who stumbled around a woman's yard, repeatedly yelling "zombies."

The Leaf-Chronicle reported police went to a home after the woman who lived there called them late Saturday. Officers said they found 22-year-old David Cunningham shouting about zombies and smelling strongly of alcohol. He had slurred speech, blood shot eyes and — said the police report — wasn't making sense.

He was charged with public intoxication.

MAN WHO RODE HORSE TO CHURCH SEEKS FORGIVENESS: LIBERTY, Ky. (AP) — Howard Goode's most recent visit to a Casey County church was more humble than his first.

WLEX-TV reported Goode stood before the congregation of Ellisburg Baptist Church on Sunday to ask for forgiveness.

In 2010, Goode rode to the church on horseback and went inside armed with a gun and drunk in the middle of a sermon. The pastor called police and Goode was arrested.

On Sunday, Goode told church members he asked the Lord for forgiveness and pleaded for theirs as well.

The pastor said church members accepted Goode's apology, and he believes Goode might join the congregation.
