ALERT: Overturned semi closes lane of I-77

Good morning! It's Christine Nelson writing from my desk in the newsroom. Before I go on the set I want to send this quick email on the stories we'll be talking about when you turn on WBTV News This Morning from 4:30-7:00 a.m.

Heads up on a traffic alert! A tractor trailer went off the road this morning in Iredell County. At this hour, there's a wrecker working to tow it and it means closing a lane down on I-77. Tonya Rivens is keeping a close eye on this for you. As things start to clear we'll update you...but know the process of clearing the scene could take a while.

We are also closely monitoring the condition of former President George H.W. Bush. He is hospitalized this morning in Houston, Texas. We have an update on what exactly doctors are treating him for and their prognosis for a full recovery.

Authorities are on the lookout for some bank robbers who could be in North Carolina as we speak. The robbers committed their crime in Tennessee and took off after attacking a police officer. We have a description of the vehicle they're driving so you know what to look for.

Parents! Running out of ideas on how to keep the kids entertained during the holiday break?? We have a story just for you...and the kids! WBTV's Astrid Martinez is live in the studio coming to your rescue.

I have to go now! See you on the air,

Christine
