By Daniel Wine, CNN

👋 Welcome to 5 Things PM! During the last total solar eclipse in 2017, there was a significant increase in fatal car crashes in the United States. It wasn’t due to the eclipse itself but rather because millions more people were traveling, researchers said. The hours after the eclipse were especially dangerous. With the next total solar eclipse coming up on April 8, chances are it could happen again. If you’re planning to travel, please be careful out there.

Here’s what else you might have missed during your busy day:
