SAN FRANCISCO — Attorneys for Robin Williams' wife and children are headed to court in their battle over the late comedian's estate.

The lawyers are scheduled to appear before a San Francisco probate judge on Monday, as they argue over who should get clothes and other personal items the actor kept at one his Northern California homes.

In papers filed in December, Williams' wife, Susan, says some of the late actor's personal items were taken without her permission.

She has asked the court to exclude the contents of the San Francisco Bay area home she shared with Williams from the jewelry, memorabilia and other items Williams said the children should have.

Police in Glades County, Florida, have few clues as to what actually happened. Early Monday a van with 18 people inside ran a stop sign, crossed a four-lane highway and plunged into a shallow water-filled ditch. Eight people died. Ten others, including a 4-year-old child, were injured, according to police.

Investigators don't know why it happened, Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Greg Bueno said. The driver died, and police haven't been able to interview passengers yet.

"Our hearts go out to the families of the victims," Bueno said. "It breaks your heart to see something like this happen."

Some relatives of the crash victims, all of whom were from the Independent Haitian Assembl

Legendary North Carolina Coach Dean Smith, who took his college basketball team to two NCAA championships, always coaxed the best out of his players. Now, a month after his death, he has issued one final ‘thank you’ to every full-time player who ever hit the court for him.

Trustees of Smith’s estate mailed out $200 checks to 180 players with an accompanying letter that read, “enjoy a dinner out compliments of Coach Dean Smith.”

Player Brad Daugherty said on ESPN that he would ignore the coach’s orders to spend the money on dinner out: “Nope, I’m going to get it matted and framed, and stick it on my wall so I can look at it every day.”

Jeff Wilson wanted to die.

For, at least, several days after he hit a fellow student with his car in high school, the California teen was devastated to his core.

Tammie Baird, a freshman, was not badly hurt, having only chipped an ankle bone. But in a surprising twist of fate, the shocking moment when Tammie flew over Wilson’s car, placed her on a unique career path no one could have foreseen.

20-something years later, out of the blue, she wrote an email to Jeff telling him her good news:

“You may have been the first person to hit me with your car, but you weren’t the last,” she began.

“I became a stunt woman, and now, what I’m known for in my industry is car hits.”

“I ju

One policeman made a pretty unlikely pal while on the job.

Deputy Mark Elsaid of the Lee County Sheriff's Office in Florida was on patrol earlier this week when he spotted a pit bull not on a leash, Tiffany Wood, one of the office's public information officers, told The Huffington Post. Neighbors told Elsaid that they were concerned that the dog might possibly harm local children. Elsaid then approached the animal and quickly realized that the pooch was just after some TLC.

"[The pup] didn't want to terrorize the neighborhood, he just got out of his gate, and just wanted to go and be friends with everybody," Wood told HuffPost.

The policeman ended up returning the dog, whose nam

A picture that holds a memory is worth much more than a thousand words.

It's MASS MURDER, nothing less, say most officials. Andreas Lubitz, the Germanwings co-pilot who authorities say deliberately crashed a plane with 150 people on board in the French Alps Tuesday, was "rather quiet" and showed no overt signs of his intentions, people who knew him said Thursday.

There were screams as passengers realized in the final seconds that the co-pilot was deliberately flying them into the mountains after locking the captain out of the cockpit.

Germany's top security official said the 28-year-old German citizen wasn't known to authorities, and there are "no indications of any kind of terrorist background."

Quincy Kroner had that exact feeling on March 13 when he met his local heroes -- the neighborhood garbage men, Mark Davis and Eddie Washington. The Cincinnati 2-year-old has been fascinated by the garbage truck “since about the age he could walk,” the toddler’s father, Ollie Kroner, told The Huffington Post in an email. But this was the first time he met the garbage men in person, and it was all too much for him -- resulting in the adorably priceless photo above.

Longmont, Colorado, police officers Billy Sawyer and Phil Piotrowski responded to a 911 call from a pregnant woman who was stabbed and had her fetus ripped out. When they saw her they could not believe how she survived.

"She was covered from head to toe in blood," Sawyer said. "So I put some gloves on and held her hand and went through where her injuries were ... trying to figure out exactly what we had."

Michelle Wilkins was weak and in shock when the officers arrived.

"I started yelling and Michelle yelled back, very faintly, and it was muffled -- 'Help me! Help me!'" Sawyer said.

The grisly cutting of the fetus from Wilkins began when she responded to a Craigslist ad about bab

New Jersey couple Jourdan and Ryan Spencer met when they were set up on a blind date in 2004 -- but they first crossed paths more than a decade before.

Several years ago, while watching home videos together, the couple came across some footage from 1988 (which you can watch above) when a 10-year-old Jourdan and her family were visiting Sesame Place amusement park in Langhorne, Pennsylvania. Jourdan was in line for the water slide and her family was waiting at the bottom for her to come down. That's when Ryan, a then-13-year-old stranger, walked into the frame.

"Ryan walked past [in the video] and he said, 'That looks like me,'" Jourdan told The Huffington Post. "We stopped it and rewou
