The former quarterback, who was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers, is accused of raping a college student at a house in Blacksburg back in March.

But prosecutors say the young woman was too drunk to consent to sex.
12-hours after the two were together, the young woman's blood alcohol content measured point oh seven.
To further prove that sex between the two was NOT consensual-- testimony was also introduced that the woman had to have a tampon removed at the hospital and that abrasions to her vaginal area were detected.

V-Dot says it's looking into ways to prevent cross-over accidents as it prepares to improve Interstate 81.
On Tuesday, two people were killed near the spot where seven people died, when a car crossed the median into the path of a tractor trailer in July of last year.
This year highway engineers will begin drawing up plans for interstate improvements between Salem and Troutville.
