The first collision occurred about 8:45 p.m. at Monroe and Mulberry streets in West Baltimore, where the Acura struck another vehicle and sped off as officers arrived.

Within minutes, the Acura collided with two other cars in West Baltimore before arriving in the 700 block of W.

Frank Ocean's soon-to-be-rereleased album, Nostalgia, Ultra. , is a grower. When I first heard it in March, it seemed like a better-than-average debut a few rare flashes of brilliance. But I wasn't bowled over. For every slick no-brainer ("Novacane," "Songs For Women"), there was a strange, off-putting decision lurking ("Strawberry Swing" samples Coldplay; "American Wedding" inexpicably reinterprets the Eagles' "Hotel California"). But the more time spent with Nostalgia , the more likeable Ocean becomes as a singer, and more importantly, a storyteller.
