Route 220 was closed for more than seven-hours Saturday morning after police say a hit and run driver caused a four-car accident.
18-year-old Shannon Cochran was driving Southbound on 220 just after two o'clock when another car cut her off at a high rate of speed.

Today's presidential election is viewed as a test of democracy in the former Soviet Republic. The election is also viewed as an indicator of whether the strategically placed country will move closer to the West or cultivate its historically close ties to neighboring Russia. The result could take weeks to decided. There are 24 candidates on the ballot -and neither of the key contenders were expected to get the 50 percent needed for a first-round victory. In that case, the two candidates with the most votes would go into a November 21 runoff.
