*CG locator Franklin Co.

It happened around 6-thirty tonight
near Rocky Mount.

State Police say the tractor trailer
was heading north on route 220 when it
rounded a curve too fast, causing its
load to shift.

The shifting weight caused the
driver to lose control of the truck,
and it overturned.

Police say the driver from North
Carolina will be charged with reckless
driving.

He was not injured.

Police say one northbound lane is
currently blocked, but both lanes will
have to be shut down at some point to
clean up the accident and get the truck

cleared with "no" hazardous materials
being spilled.

The truck carrying four thousand
gallons of liquid oxygen ran off Route

The driver suffered minor injuries

Some of the liquid oxygen escaped

GRAPHIC=NFL DRAFT The NFL draft came and went over


the weekend and most folks were shaking
their heads wondering how in the world
ACC player of the Year Bryan Randall
could go through the entire process
without being selected.

Tonight, I talked with Randall
-the newest member of the Atlanta
Falcons - on the phone about how
disappointing and frustrating the
weekend was for him.

(END SOT) Not long after the draft ended Randall



and his agent felt like the Arizona
Cardinals would come calling with a
free agent offer. But before they
could get in touch with him the Falcons
made him an offer he couldn't refuse.
And despite what you might think - he's
excited about once again playing in
Michael Vick's shadow.

BRYAN RANDALL

Randall proved that he was the best at
least in the ACC last season, and he is
determined to make the most of this
NFL opportunity and prove to the
Falcons that they got one heck of a
bargain.

The facility sits on two acres

There's even a cat condo, an
outdoor walking area and an education

room for school groups to tour.

The building was paid for mostly
