Two people died when a gasoline tanker truck collided with six cars.
It happened on Interstate 45 about eight miles north of Houston.
The rig slammed into the center guardrails, and rolled over onto several vehicles.
The driver got out, but only seconds before the rig burst into a roaring fireball.
The two people who died were in separate cars.
One other person is critically hurt.

A man was killed when the pick-up he was driving hit the rear-end of a slow-moving tractor trailer.
It started when a different 18-wheeler lost its clutch in the middle of the highway. The disabled rig blocked both north-bound lanes and the shoulder. Just as the truck was pulled out of the way and the traffic was beginning to pick up speed, the Blue Toyota pick-up crested a hill near the Ironto Rest Area.
State police say there were no skid marks, so the pick-up truck driver apparently never saw the rig in front of him.

Farmers are losing almost 40-percent of their revenue, but will this mean lower milk prices for consumers?
(------------)
[VO-NAT]
[SUPER=03-Franklin Co.;]


The price farmers earn for milk has dropped more in the past month than it has in 30 years.
One Botetourt County farmer says the average local farmer will lose about ten-thousand-dollars.
The person who sells milk to Kroger says he's lowered his prices by 47-cents per gallon -- but Farm Bureau officials say customers will probably NOT see lower prices in the dairy case.
They say the reason farmers are getting so much less for milk is because they're producing more, grain prices are lower and the holiday boom season is over.

Scientists say a protein called lysozyme quickly killed the AIDS virus in test-tube experiments. That protein is a natural compund the body makes in tears and saliva. Researchers say the protein that destroys genetic material in the AIDS virus could produce an H-I-V fighting drug.
