:00 Peter Wallenstein (Wallen-steen)
was in court this morning, accused of
hitting a bicyclist with his car, and
then leaving the scene.


The judge dropped it, saying
there was not enough evidence for the
criminal charge.


The crash happened in February at
the intersection of West Campus Drive
and Perry Street.


The cyclist is a freshman at
Tech, said he was in a crosswalk when a
P-T- Cruiser made a sharp turn and ran
into him.


The student said he crashed into
the rear passenger door and wheel.


He was not seriously injured.

Thirty-five alleged muslim separatists

there's been


no independent confirmation of the

Police also released photos of
confiscated explosives from a second

suicide attacks in Chinese cities.



Human rights groups have accused China
of exaggerating separatist threats to


justify a crackdown on dissidents.

< Webb. Just looking at the weather maps
from across the country - you know it's
spring. Strong storms are possible
today in the Mississippi Valley.
Tomorrow the severe threat diminishes
to our west.


Around here - it's all about the warmer
temperatures. Today, look for a blend
of sunshine and clouds with highs
popping back into the low and mid 70s.
Winds will be southeasterly at 10-15mph
this afternoon. Partly cloudy and mild
tonight. Lows in the mid and upper 50s.


Friday, southerly winds will transport
more warmth into the NEWS7 viewing
area. The week wraps up with highs in
the mid 70s with increasing clouds
during the afternoon. A stray shower is
possible Friday as a cold front
approaches from the west, but the
threat of organized showers won't
arrive until after sunset. So, Friday
night we'll call for showers and lows
near 60.


The first half of Saturday will be
cloudy with showers. Unfortunately,


we're not expecting a lot of rain with
this system. On the other hand, at
least we've gotten good rain lately.
Partial clearing is possible Saturday
afternoon. Highs will be cooler, in the
upper 60s. Lows that night will fall to
the low and mid 40s - sharply cooler!


Sunday's highs are slated in the mid
50s with clouds and a 20% chance of an
isolated shower.


Next week starts cloudy, but as the
week wears on, we'll see more sunshine.
The week will also start cool, but as
the week wears on, temperatures will
also respond nicely to the spring
sunshine! (Monday's high near 50.
Thursday's high near 70.)


THURSDAY: Partly sunny. Much warmer!
High: 74


THURSDAY NIGHT: Partly cloudy and mild.
Low: 57


FRIDAY: Increasing clouds. Warm. 76


FRIDAY NIGHT: Showers. Mild. Low: 59

Insurance Institute for Highway Safety "There are a lot more SUV's and pickup

Insurance Institute for Highway Safety)



All seven of the mid-sized models
tested now have side air bags as
STANDARD equipment.



(Take side crash graphic)


Six of them... the Dodge Avenger, the
Infiniti G35, the Nissan Altima,
Chevrolet Malibu, Saturn Aura, and the
Mitsubishi Galant... were rated "GOOD"
in the side-crash test. The Kia Optima
was "Acceptable."

All seven vehicles were rated "GOOD"
for front crashes...



(nat sound of Avenger rear crash from

but most of them didn't do so well in


rear crashes.



(Rear Crash graphic)Only the Kia Optima
was "Good." The Avenger was rated
"Acceptable." The Infiniti G-35...
Nissan Altima... Chevrolet Malibu...
And Saturn Aura... Were all "Marginal."
And the Mitsubishi Galant was "poor."



(b-roll)


Rear crashes don't often lead to
serious injuries or fatalities.. but
they're common in stop-and-go traffic,
and the results can be painful for
years to come.



SOT: (09:06)


"It's disappointing, because we don't
think it's all that hard to provide
protection for the neck in rear-end
crashes... and it's taking a while for
manufacturers to fit seats and head
restraints that offer better
protection."





(anchor tag)


Not all air bags are created equal.


In the side collisions, what you want
is a bag ... Or a couple of bags.. that
are placed to protect your head as well
as your chest.>>

GRAPHIC=AVS In sports, The Salem Avalanche,


at least in the early going, has shown
the ability to win the close games.


The Avs were 3 and 1 heading into
their game against Wilmington, with all
3 wins coming by a Single Run.


The lone loss was by 5.

Avalanche vs Blue Rocks Avs coming off a 14 inning
victory last night at Salem Memorial
Stadium, looking to take the first 2 of
a 3- game set.


Salem would get on the board
first.


Caesar Quintero will strike out.


But the ball gets past the Catcher, and
that allows John Florentino to score
from 3rd.


Avs weren't done in the bottom of
the third.


Orlando Rosales will single to center
field.


Greg Buchanan comes into score from
2nd base and Salem had a 2 to nothing
lead.


*CG final Wilmington It didn't last.

7 Joseph Dickerson hit a 2 Run Homer Salem to right field.

8 The Blue Rocks scored 2 Runs in 3
staight innings, but the Avs would
score 4 in the 9th...they win another
1- run game, 8 to 7, over Wilmington.

GRAPHIC=UVA To Football-- where the Virginia


Cavaliers will wrap up their Spring
Practice this weekend with the Spring
Game in Scott Stadium.


The Game is set to get underway
at 2 o'clock.


It will be the final chance for
Fans, Coaches, and everyone else to
watch Peter Lalich, the Wahoo's
Projected Starting Quarterback.


Whether it be right or wrong, the
Q-B Position gets much of the attention
on a football Team.


Head Coach Al Groh feels the job
is unlike any other, meaning he must
have one trait when dealing with his
Signal Caller.

GRAPHIC=MASTERS The Masters is the only one of


the 4 Majors in Golf that is played on
the same course year after year.


That tends to lead to many
familiar faces contending for Golf's
First Major over and over.


Tiger Woods already owns 4 Green
Jackets, while Phil Mickelson has put
on 2 in his career.

*CG locator Augusta, GA


Those 2 wins by Mickelson have
come over the last 4 years at Augusta


National.


Over that time Tiger has just 1
victory.


Lefty would like nothing put
another Green Jacket in the closet, but
his last masters win back in 2-thousand
and 6, is also his last Major Win.


But returning to Augusta to start
the season brings back many good
memories for Mickelson.
