OVERNIGHT: 2 hospitalized after wrong way crash on I-77

Hello. It's Christine Nelson sending you a quick email on this Monday, April 22 - Earth Day! Hope you enjoyed the weekend. This is the news making headlines right now. Watch us right now and we'll get you caught up on all the news that happened overnight.

LIVE: The thought is scary driving on the right side of the road, and another car going the wrong way is coming right at you head-on. That's what happened on I-77 in south Charlotte overnight. Two people were hurt. WBTV's Cam Man Ron Lee talked to a witness who told us what she saw and how far the driver drove the wrong way on the interstate.

Plus, a somber day in Charlotte today as Billy Graham's longtime soloist is laid to rest in a private ceremony. George Beverly Shea will be buried on the grounds of the Billy Graham Library. We spoke to his son about the legacy Shea leaves behind, and he tells us about a side of his father we don't always hear about.

NEW: Continuing coverage of the capture of the Boston Marathon bombing suspect... We found out overnight Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been communicating with law enforcement in the hospital. We have details on that. We're also finding out when charges will officially be filed against the 19-year-old.

Are you doing any traveling by air this week? How federal budget cuts may not make the skies so friendly at Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

Ok, it's time for me to go over a few more stories in the rundown and get makeup-ready for the show.

See you on the air!

Christine
