A Jeep crashed into a tax preparation office Saturday at 36th Street and Falls Road in Hampden, pinning a pedestrian to the road and sending a wave of glass over people inside, according to witnesses. Tom Hanlon, 63, was inside getting his paperwork done before Monday's filing deadline. “It was like a bomb went off,” he said. “Glass flew past me 30 feet.” Hanlon said he went outside and the driver of the Jeep seemed dazed. People warned him not to back up because another man was trapped underneath the SUV, he added.

With its reptilian eyes, gaping maw and upswept body line, the all-new 2014 Jeep Cherokee bears little resemblance to the boxy but beloved icon that arguably started the whole SUV craze back in 1974. In fact, at first glance, it looks downright weird. But that's OK because once you get used to that lizard face (and you will) you'll also see that the new Cherokee can boulevard along city streets and billy-goat through rough terrain pretty much like the old one -- and a whole lot more comfortably, too. Cherokee's revival is a timely market move by Chrysler.
