Teenaged Girl Dies After Fight, Chilly Weekend, Credit Card Debt

An investigation is underway into the death of a 16-year-old in Warrensville Heights. Police say a 16-year-old girl is dead and another 16-year-old girl is in police custody. Officials say the girls were fighting around 8 p.m. Wednesday at 4769 Walford Road. The fight was broken up, but then one of the girls collapsed. EMS rushed her to the hospital, where she died. The second teenager was taken into custody and charges are pending.  No names have been released. The Cuyahoga County medical examiner says they have done an autopsy on the teenager, but the cause and manner of death remain under investigation.

The heaviest rain will be arriving late this afternoon into tonight. As this cold front moves through we'll tap into much colder air this weekend. Behind the front lake effect showers will linger through Sunday. Drier air pushes in Sunday night. Monday will be partly cloudy with temperatures still in the 50s.

Credit card users are being more responsible about paying bills than we've seen in a decade. A report by the American Bankers Association finds delinquencies on credit cards dropped to their lowest level since 2001 earlier this year. Less than three percent of all bank card accounts were 30 days or more overdue, 2.93 percent, to be exact. That's down from the 15 year average of 3.91 percent. The ABA said consumers are saving more and borrowing less while working to pay down debt. But delinquencies on some other kinds of debt are up. The ABA found personal loans, RV loans, home equity loans and some auto loans were getting worse.
