Number five -- Seattle Police have arrested a man accused of stealing a ferry this morning. Victoria Clipper ferry staff saw the boat pull away, then called police once they realized it was not an employee manning it. Officers hooked a tugboat to the ferry so they could board it. The suspect was alone on the boat and taken into custody.

Number four -- The Obama administration says it met its goal to have the Healthcare.gov website working "smoothly for the vast majority of users." The administration had set a deadline of midnight Sunday to have the troubled website up and running. While the website is running smoother than it once was, users could still face error messages and slow performance times.

Number three -- Today is World AIDS Day. The Clinton Library in Little Rock displayed a portion of the AIDS Quilt, which is meant to be a visual reminder of the AIDS pandemic. There are more than 48,000 panels of the quilt, made by loved ones to commemorate the life of someone who died from the disease.

Number two -- Four people are dead and at least 67 others injured,11 of them seriously, after a train derailed in New York. A commuter train jumped the tracks in the Bronx this morning, on its way to Grand Central Station from Poughkeepsie which is about 100 miles north of New York City. At least two train cars are flipped on their sides while the others lie twisted and mangled.

Number one -- Actor Paul Walker is dead. The 40-year-old star of the "Fast and Furious" franchise was killed in a fiery car crash in California yesterday. A second person, identified as the driver of the Porsche, also died in the accident. Both were attending a charity event for Walker's organization, Reach Out Worldwide. The event was intended to benefit victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. Authorities say that speed was a factor. A memorial now stands at the crash site. Walker is survived by his 15-year-old daughter, Meadow.
