Coastal Link: Top 3 on 3

Posted: Updated:

Here's a quick look at your Top 3 on 3 stories you'll need to know before heading out this morning.

An Appling County teen has been charged with murder. What first appeared to be a hunting accident of another teen, quickly led to an arrest Monday. The sheriff's department first announced a hunting accident had killed 16-year-old Vince Lane Combee on Sunday off of the Holland Road Extension. Now, 17-year-old Johnny Tyler Odom has been charged with shooting and killing him. He is currently being held in the Appling County Jail.

Also, in a News 3 follow up, the deal was sealed, but now Tybee City officials are pulling the plug on a device that they believed would help keep a tally on island traffic. City officials now say additional research shows that an approved license plate reader would not be as efficient as initially thought. So on Monday afternoon, city council voted to reverse the decision of the project, which carried a price tag of nearly $29,000.

In national news, officials are calling Sunday's commuter train crash in New York the state's deadliest in the last 20 years. Now, transportation officials say evidence shows that the train was traveling 82 miles per hour as it approached a 30 mile per hour zone and jumped the tracks. Four passengers died. More than 60 others, including the train's engineer, were injured. That engineer and the train conductor are now under questioning.
