Around 1:00 this afternoon four tractor trailers were involved in separate accidents near mile marker 109.

In less than five minutes another truck and car collided and then two more trucks ran into each other. It took several hours to clean up the original tractor trailer with the broken axle.

As to why he was dismissed now court transcripts show that Falconer had discussed the media coverage with his girlfriend. Now a former juror, the court-imposed gag order doesn't apply anymore, and Falconer wasted no time telling the media he could not deliver a conviction... saying the prosecution was doing a bad job. Falconer again "I have not seem anything that ya know would make me believe that he committed this crime" Before selecting a replacement juror, the judge lectured the panel about their responsibilities insisting they not watch ANY coverage - no radio TV, or newspaper stories about the Peterson trial. The judge also denied the defense's motion for a mistrial despite having tossed the juror defense attorney mark Geragos said he was outraged. Manual Gallegus, CBS NEWS.))

Someone tried to rob an ATM by ramming a stolen truck into it, and take a look at what's left. The effort caused thousands of dollars in damage to the truck, and to the building housing the ATM, but the crooks left empty-handed. The building was torn apart, but the safe held tight, and all the money inside the safe remained secure. (------------)
