Major Charlotte Intersection Shut Down

Good morning!  It's Thursday, 16 August 2012.  John Carter with the WBTV News morning team reporting to you this morning.  Please join us from 4:30 to 7:00 AM for Charlotte's best morning newscast...a lot has been happening that we'll tell you about.

A major Charlotte intersection was shut down overnight following a wreck.  Police say a car ran a red light at East Independence Boulevard and Sardis Road and slammed into an SUV.  Cam Man Ron Lee will join us live from the scene with details.

A late night vigil was held in west Charlotte for the 13 year old boy who police say was murdered by a 16 year old acquaintance.

A new interactive map is available for you that will help you navigate uptown Charlotte during the upcoming Democratic National Convention.  We'll have details and where you can access the map.

Christine Nelson has an all-new See, Click, Fix story about a wheel chair ramp at a local post office.  The ramp works fine...but being able to get to it is another matter!

Our newest team member, Astrid Martinez, will join us live this morning with an all-new story.  The start of school for Charlotte Mecklenburg students is almost here and we hear a lot of talk about class size.  Astrid's taking a close look at the issue...and has some insight into whether class size really matters when it comes to educating students.

Plus...today marks the 35th anniversary of the King of Rock 'N Roll.  We'll show you how fans, including Priscilla and Lisa Marie, are marking the occasion.

And...we've got perfection this morning!  For only the 23rd time in history...a perfect game pitched in the majors!

All that and so much more...when you join us this morning from 4:30 to 7:00 AM.  Hope to see you then!
