Today in history

Today is Wednesday, Oct. 3, the 277th day of 2012. There are 89 days left in the year.

On this date in the SCV: In 1994, two cars collided on Sierra Highway at night, leaving one driver dead and the other critically injured. At around 7:10 p.m., a Subaru station wagon traveling between 50 and 60 mph crossed into oncoming traffic, striking a Ford pickup. The Subaru driver, a Lancaster resident, died instantly.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Oct. 3, 1962, astronaut Wally Schirra became the fifth American to fly in space as he blasted off from Cape Canaveral aboard the Sigma 7 on a 9-hour flight.

Ten years ago: Five people were shot to death in the Washington, D.C. area within a 14-hour period, sparking the hunt for the “Beltway Sniper.” Hurricane Lili gave Louisiana’s coast a 100-mile-an-hour battering. Producer-director Bruce Paltrow, 58, died in Rome, Italy.

Five years ago: North Korea agreed to provide a complete list of its nuclear programs and disable its facilities at its main reactor complex by December 31, 2007. (However, North Korea later said it would move to restore its nuclear reactor, saying the United States had failed to follow through with promised incentives.) President George W. Bush quietly vetoed expansion of a children’s health insurance program.

One year ago: An Italian appeals court freed Amanda Knox of Seattle after four years in prison, tossing murder convictions against Knox and an ex-boyfriend in the stabbing of their British roommate, Meredith Kercher. Three scientists, Bruce Beutler of the U.S., Jules Hoffmann of France and Canadian-born Ralph Steinman (who had died three days earlier), won the Nobel Prize in medicine. Arthur C. Nielsen Jr., 92, who’d led the famous TV ratings company, died in Winnetka, Ill.
