Scary moments for a passenger traveling down a highway in Massachusetts.

The photo above shows an ax that flew out of the back of a truck traveling on Rte. 95 in Topsfield, Massachusetts. The State police posted the photo to their Facebook page with this caption below.

"These motorists, whom we are not identifying, endured a very frightening moment shortly before 11 a.m. today as they were driving on Route 95 southbound in Topsfield. A landscaper driving a dump truck in front of them had failed to properly secure an axe, which flew off the truck and struck the windshield of the car behind it. Thankfully, the axe only went halfway through the windshield. The passenger who is partially seen in the photo was shaken up (who wouldn't be?) but not injured."

They also reminded motorists to secure all belongings safely.

A video has surfaced of Tim McGraw performing in Atlanta over the weekend that appears to show the performer slapping a fan.

A rep for McGraw stated in an interview to Billboard "at the end of the night during the encore, Tim was singing out in the audience and someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn't let go as he was moving through the crowd. He instinctively swatted to try and keep them from ripping his jeans (which they succeeded at doing), and so he could get to more fans who were trying to slap hands with him before the end of the show. He didn't know who had grabbed him and was trying to keep his pants from being torn."

The British website Daily Mail posted a now deleted article about the actor stating that his fiancée's mother opposed their marriage due to religious reasons.

Clooney responded to these claims via this exclusive article with USA Today.

"First of all, none of the story is factually true," he says. "The irresponsibility, in this day and age, to exploit religious differences where none exist, is at the very least negligent and more appropriately dangerous."

Daily Mail blames the mistake on being "supplied in good faith by a reputable and trusted freelance journalist."

"We accept Mr. Clooney's assurance that the story is inaccurate and we apologize to him, Miss Amal Alamuddin and her mother, Baria, for any distress caused," the website said.

Zack "Danger" Brown from Columbus, Ohio wanted to make a potato salad and he asked for $10 to do so.

His Kickstarter campaign, with the sales pitch line of "basically I'm just making potato salad… I haven't decided what kind yet," has drawn in over $40,000 from backers for the project.

Perks for backing the project now include being in the kitchen when Brown makes the dish, to hats, or even a Columbus made t-shirt if you give $35.

It's unlikely that he needs any more money for the project (he has well surpassed his goal of $10) but since it's taking the Internet by storm, check it out here.
