One Dead In Moped Wreck; Fast Food Protests

 Good morning to you on this Thursday, 4 December 2014, from the WBTV News morning team!  John Carter reporting to you on this foggy morning.  I invite you to join us from 4:30 to 9 AM for the area's best morning newscast.


Here's a brief look at just some of the stories we're following for you this morning:

BREAKING NEWS...investigators say heavy fog may have contributed to a fatal accident involving a car and a moped in Union County.  It happened early this morning on Highway 601 south -- near Macedonia church Road - about five miles south of Monroe.

Authorities say a man and woman were on the moped, and that the woman died.


And there is heavy fog in some areas this morning.  Visibility is very limited.  We're looking at partly cloudy skies today with a high in the mid to upper 50s.  We'll have complete details in your First Alert Weather forecast.  Plus...we'll keep you posted on how the fog is impacting traffic...and whether there are any other issues that will impact your drive...in our First Alert Traffic.


Fast-food workers in Charlotte are expected to protest today, joining a growing movement for $15 an hour and union rights. Our Ashton Pellom is looking into the issue and will have a LIVE report.


Thousands of protestors hit the streets of New York last night following a grand jury's decision not to indict a police officer for the choke hold death of a man.  We'll have new, overnight details from New York.


South Carolina is joining 16 other states in a lawsuit contending President Barack Obama's order on immigration overstepped the law and violated the Constitution. 


The man the F-B-I is calling the "Striped Hoodie Bandit" will be brought back to North Carolina to face charges. 47-year old Brian Dennis Kuhles  was arrested in Huntsville, Alabama.  Investigators say he robbed a Bank of America Branch in Huntersville back in October, along with other banks in High Point and Asheboro.


Helping make sure local kids have a merry Christmas.  We'll be LIVE to tell you about a wonderful project that's helping children.  Find out how you can participate in the Toys For Tots program.


All those stories and so much more when you join us from 4:30 to 7 AM on WBTV...then from 7 to 9 AM on the Bounce channel.  Hope to see you then!
