BREAKING NEWS: 4 dead in Charlotte crash

It's Friday...the first day of November. This is Christine Nelson hoping you'll find this quick email helpful if you want know the headlines as you wake up. Tune in the WBTV News This Morning. We're live right now with the most reliable news, weather and traffic reports of all the local stations in Charlotte.

BREAKING: There is an active accident scene happening right now that you should know about. Four people died in the crash. It's on S. Tryon near Rivergate Parkway. Our Cam Man Ron Lee is live at the scene. He has details on what exactly happened. If the area is part of your commute, Traffic Reporter Sammi Jo Francis already has alternate routes you can take to get where you need to go.

The city of Albemarle dealing with it's first homicide of the year. A store owner there was killed during a robber. We have the surveillance police hope the public will see and provide clues. Be sure you're watching your TV's to see if you can help.

Plus, the thought of this is not so pleasant. But Dell computers is dealing with a bizarre complaint from customers. It has to do with the smell of some of their products - people say it's the same odor as cat urine! (I know...ewwww)

Also, should the mayor of a city resign if there are images of him smoking a crack pipe?? That's the pressure one elected official is getting. We'll tell you where.

*More issues with healthcare.gov exposed

*Rules changing to allow cellphone use on plane
