THE INSURANCE INSTITUTE FOR HIGHWAY
SAFETY CRASHED 16 SMALL CARS.

--TRACK--

ONLY TWO WERE RATED ACCEPTABLE: THE
CHEVY COBALT AND THE TOYOTA COROLLA.



--SOT--



The test results for the Cobalt and the
Corolla when it was equipped with side

impact airbags show that even small
cars can be made to protect their

occupants.

WITHOUT SIDE-IMPACT AIRBAGS, THE TWO
VEHICLES JOINED THE OTHER 14 AND
RECEIVED

A POOR RATING IN THE SIMULATION THAT
BOTH MANUFACTURERS AND THE INSTITUTE

CHARACTERIZE AS SEVERE.



--SOT--



I think this test is a message to
manufacturers. They are selling a lot
of

small cars to people out there and
those people aren't adequately
protected in

the kinds of impacts that are
increasingly frequent.

INSTITUTE, MUST BE IMPROVED.

MANUFACTURERS SAY SAFETY IS THEIR TOP
PRIORITY AND THAT THEY'RE WORKING TO
MAKE


IMPROVEMENTS WHEREVER POSSIBLE.

SOMETHING THE INSTITUTE IS HAPPY TO
HEAR.

We are hopeful that the new designs
that are coming out later this year
that

weren't included in this test group
will do a better job.

We asked - which of the teams
still alive heading into the
quarterfinals had the best chance to
win a state title in hoops?
GO TO APRISA OF POLL (GO TO APRISA OF POLL)

The results are in and by a
single percentage point - the Lord

Botetourt girls are given the best
chance to win a championship later this
week in Richmond.

The Martinsville Bulldogs
finished second in the poll with 20
percent, while the Radford girls were
third and the Heritage boys and Magna
Vista girls finished tied for fourth.

Of those four - it would appear
that Martinsiville has the biggest
challenge. The Bulldogs have to play
defending champ Robert E. Lee in the
semi-finals. Lee has won 53 straight.

And if the Bulldogs win that one
- they likely would face unbeaten
Heritage in the title game.

(MIKE ON CAMERA)

The entire state tournament is in
Richmond at the VCU Siegel Center this
Thursday. Friday and Saturday.

News 7 Sports will have a front
row seat for your as Hometown Hoops
Weekly hits the road through Saturday
night's finals.

Coming up at the top of the hour
- Steve Mason checks in from
Charlottesville where Pete Gillen met
the media today.

We'll let you know if he also

faced the music.

By the way - Gillen is the
subject of our new sports poll at
WDBJ-7 dot com.

You're invited to vote - and
we'll have the results later in the
week.

Shannon will be back in just a
moment. Have a safe night everybody.

Lurking in the waters of the
private pond at the Kingwood Lake
apartments is a three foot alligator.

Neighbors say the reptile moved
in a few days ago.

They say they've set traps but
the gator has so far eluded them.


And that has them worried.
