WASHINGTON -

On the day before Independence Day, Z-Burger celebrated the upcoming holiday with its 6th annual Independence Burger Eating Championship.

14 people from around the country squared off Wednesday for more than $3,700 in cash and prizes.

Of the 14 competitors, only one of them was a woman. Her name is Molly Schuyler from Omaha, Neb. She is the number one ranked competitive eater in the country. She also gained national attention last month for eating two 72-ounce steaks in just 15 minutes.

And on this day, she beat the boys by eating 26 cheeseburgers in 10 minutes. Schuyler took home $1,500 for being first.

Second place went to Patrick “Deep Dish” Bertoletti from Chicago. He cleared 25 cheeseburgers in 10 minutes. Bertoletti was last year’s winner and says he will be back next year.

    It was commuter confusion out on Interstate 66 Monday morning. Drivers heading eastbound towards Washington D.C. wound up seeing their traffic lanes suddenly turn into a mess. Lane stripes somehow pulled away from the road surface and created a mess of tangled tape and lanes that didn't make sense.
