Top Trenders: Car Insurance Comes to Walmart

The nation's largest retailer is partnering with Autoinsurance.com to provide customers with "a one stop shop" for auto insurance.
Here are your Top Trenders for Thursday, May 1st!

NUMBER 5 - ORDER PIZZA VIA HULU
If you think it can't get any easier to order a pizza, think again. Hulu will serve up a new Pizza Hut advertisement later this year that will allow viewers to order up a pie inside the ad. The feature combines Pizza Hut's online ordering system with Hulu's interactive advertising system. It's the kind of technology that might become more common in the future, because more companies are taking advantage of interactive ad capabilities.

NUMBER 4 - WINSTON CITED FOR STEALING CRAB LEGS
Heisman trophy winner Jameis Winston was cited for shoplifting crab legs from a Florida grocery store. The quarterback was not charged, but did receive a civil citation. He's now suspended from Florida State's baseball team as a result of the shoplifting charges. Sources tell CNN Winston will probably either have to pay a fine, complete community service or attend a class for the crab legs incident.

NUMBER 3 - WALMART AUTO INSURANCE
Walmart is now offering auto insurance. The nation's largest retailer is partnering with Autoinsurance.com to provide customers with "a one stop shop" for their auto insurance needs. Walmart will not sell insurance itself, but customers can click through a link on Walmart.com, or go to Autoinsurance.com for quotes. Walmart will also promote the service through store displays. The service is already available in eight states including Arkansas.

NUMBER 2 - BOTCHED EXECUTION RAISES QUESTIONS
Many questions are surrounding a botched execution in Oklahoma. Death row inmate Clayton Lockett died of a massive heart attack after prison officials stopped giving him lethal injection drugs due to complications. A recent shortage of lethal injection chemicals has forced some states to try new drug combinations or use drugs from loosely regulated companies. The FDA has not approved any drugs for use in executions.

NUMBER 1 - RECORD FLOODING IN FLORIDA
Much of the destruction caused by severe weather across the midwest and the south has been caused by tornadoes and strong winds. But in the Florida Panhandle, the destruction has been caused by flood waters washing away huge chunks of major roads, half-submerging cars and opening up huge sinkholes. The National Weather Service says the area set a new record for rainfall. Pensacola's airport recorded an estimated 15.55 inches on Tuesday.
