Daughter of Christian music star killed by car
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The 5-year-old daughter of Grammy-winning Christian music star Steven Curtis Chapman was struck and killed Wednesday by a sport utility vehicle driven by her brother, authorities said.
The girl, Maria Sue, was hit in the driveway of the family's home Wednesday afternoon by a Toyota Land Cruiser driven by her teenage brother, said Laura McPherson, a spokeswoman for the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
The brother, whose name and exact age weren't available, apparently did not see the girl, McPherson said. No charges are expected.
'It looks like a tragic accident,' she said.
Several family members witnessed the accident, which happened in Williamson County just south of Nashville. The girl died later at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, hospital spokeswoman Laurie Holloway said.
Winehouse wins award
LONDON - Amy Winehouse has won a prestigious songwriting award for 'Love Is a Losing Game' from her 'Back to Black' album.
The song won the Ivor Novello award for best song musically and lyrically at a ceremony in London on Thursday. Her father, Mitch Winehouse, accepted the award after the 24-year-old singer-songwriter arrived too late to collect it in person.
Her song 'Rehab,' also from the 'Back to Black' album, won a Novello last year.
The awards are given out annually by Britain's songwriting community.
Former child star tries on new role
LOS ANGELES - Barry Livingston admits he's not movie hero material. The former child star from 'My Three Sons' definitely doesn't look the part.
Livingston usually gets mild-mannered, science-geek roles, so he was excited to land a role in the action movie 'Final Approach,' airing 8 p.m. Saturday on the Hallmark Channel.
The 54-year-old actor plays an airline passenger whose expertise as an aeronautical engineer allows him to help Dean Cain's character as they attempt to foil hijackers.
Livingston is best remembered as Ernie Douglas on the hit sitcom 'My Three Sons' that aired in the 1960s and early '70s.
