Police say speed is to blame for an accident that sent a car into the air, striking an apartment building, and hospitalizing both occupants.
It happened around two this morning in Blacksburg on Giles Road by the Northview Apartments. Police say 22 year old Miles T. Cushman of Beckley was at the wheel. Rescuers had to free him from the vehicle. His passenger, 18 year old Kenneth Warden of Blacksburg, was ejected in the crash. Both men are being treated for head injuries.

The students at the direction of their teach Bud McWarter have built several cages for Dorothy Runion.
The new digs for the injured animals are made out of recycled materials--including old cabinets discarded during the renovation of Cave Spring High School and materials donated from local businesses.

On this day Mr McWarter's class delivered Zeus' new home.
They had roughly an hour of class time to put the finishing touches on Zeus' new home.
Their efforts gave a majestic animal in need a better place to live out his life.
