ELBA TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Authorities said a man broke into his ex-girlfriend’s house in Lapeer County early Monday, took the couple’s shared vehicle and later crashed it.

The 37-year-old man is accused of breaking into the home on Georgia Drive in Elba Township at 3:34 a.m. He used to live there but moved out last fall when the pair broke up.

He attempted to take his 37-year-old ex-girlfriend’s purse, which had the keys to a 2015 White Dodge Journey inside. Officials said there was a physical altercation that started in the house and continued into the driveway.

Lincoln Cancels Plans for Rivian-Based Electric Vehicle

  • Lincoln has canceled plans for a new EV using startup automaker Rivian’s platform.
  • We speculated that this new model could be called the Mark E and produce up to 700 horsepower.
  • Lincoln says it will eventually build a fully electric vehicle, just not with Rivian’s platform.

    Lincoln announced that it will no longer partner with startup EV automaker Rivian for a new fully electric vehicle, in part because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Ford’s luxury brand had planned to release a new EV model riding on Rivian’s skateboard platform but now says it will eventually develop its own EV.

    This cancellation just so happened to occur on the same day that we published our speculation about this new Rivian-based Lincoln model, possibly called the Mark E, that was slated to arrive in 2022 or thereabouts. That timeline will certainly be pushed back now. We’re starting to think that the eventual Lincoln

    A family riding in a vehicle

    Drivers and passengers can enjoy a clean Kia vehicle when they visit the Lehighton Kia service center.

    Drivers have become more particular than ever before when it comes to cleaning the interior of their Kia vehicle. Not cleaning the interior of a vehicle allows for dust to build up, which can downgrade the performance of air vents and other components. It can also allow for stains to break down materials like leather quicker than normal. Of course, there is also always a concern over germs and bacteria.

    At Lehighton Kia, the in-house service center’s technicians offer cleaning and sanitation services on Kia vehicles. Thanks to their knowledge and experience, they can clean and sanitize difficult-to-reach areas while using effective, yet gentle cleaning solutions recommended by Kia.

    Ask the Right Questions About Electric Vehicle Adoption

    With oil prices plummeting, it’s reasonable to expect that some advisors and investors are pondering whether slumping crude bodes ill for electric vehicle adoption and ETFs such as the ARK Autonomous Technology & Robotics ETF (NYSEARCA: ARKQ).

    Known in part for being one of the ETFs with the largest weights to Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA), ARKQ captures the converging industrial and technology sectors, capitalizing from autonomous vehicles, robotics, 3D printing, and energy storage technologies. That wide mandate helps lever the ARK fund too much more than just self-driving cars, an important trait at a time of rapid robotics advancements.

    With a 13% weight to Tesla, ARKQ is indeed levered to the electric vehicle trend, but investors may not need to fret over lower oil prices affecting the ARK fund. In fact, that question may miss the market altogether.
