its wheels. the cargo area, the box there, it actually detached from the rest of the truck. it's still lying on its side here on the right-hand side of the roadway in the hov area. they're going to have to clean that up, get that out of the way. the cars that were involved in this accident, they have left the scene here. they're making some progress, but they've still got a little ways to go here. they're hoping to open another lane or two here shortly. they don't have an estimate of when things will get back to normal. we have very, very slow traffic through the area. only getting by the accident scene in the right hand lane. you can imagine what this is doing to traffic this morning. there were three vehicles involved in this accident, two cars and this truck. there were transports to the hospital. no word on the condition of those who were injured. if you've got to travel through this area, definitely give yourself some extra time. it is a crawl here getting by this accident. now with more on traffic, we go to danella. >> thank you. other traffic in our area

>> no parent ever expects to have to say good-bye to their children, but sometimes it happens. >> liggins is charged with first and second degree murder. we don't know what started the initial fight. this is second year in a row that an off campus crime ended with the death of a student at frostburg. last april 20-year-old brandon carroll of waldorf was shot after a fight at an off campus party. another student, tyrone hall, was sentenced to five years in prison last november. today in virginia, a key court hearing scheduled in the case of a former university of virginia lacrosse player accused of killing his ex-girlfriend. george hewgley's lawyers will make another attempt to get yardley love's medical records released. police say hewgley killed love last year when he slammed her head against the wall. a medical examiner said she died of blunt trauma to the head. his attorneys say love may have died from an irregular heartbeat partially caused by prescription drugs and alcohol. hewgley's trial is scheduled to
begin in february. for the fourth time in the past month, there's been an attempted abduction in spotsylvania county. the latest incident happened saturday afternoon in the 6700 block of satterfield court in fredericksburg. an 8-year-old girl said men in a van yelled at her to come closer. she ran away, though. there were four men in a black ford econoline van with red writing that said malroy. she said they were wearing gray big poofy coats and necklaces with crosses. investigators do not think this attempted abduction is connected to others in the county. this morning an 8-year-old autistic boy lost for nearly a week is waking up in his own bed. robert wood jr. was released from the hospital over the weekend. he disappeared for five nights while hiking with his family in north hanover park in hanover county. wood does not speak, which made it harder to find him. eventually, he was found in a fetal position near a rock
quarry close to the park. today officials in greece will meet to decide who becomes the interim prime minister there. they reached an agreement to ford a temporary government. prime minister george papandreu will not head the temporary government. the new government is expected to be in place three to four months to ensure a new european debt bailout plan will be put in place. >> stock markets on news are down based on the news. they're not sure greece will be able to work out the debt relief. redskins stock are plummeting this morning. they were able to score some points one week after being shutout but shot themselves in the foot too many times. they had three turnovers, including two fumbles. john beck threw for 242 yards, a
touchdown, and an interception. the 49ers held on 19-11. this is the skins' fourth loss in a row. >> i want to put my foot down and have this stop. we have too many good players on this team. we have good character. we have guys that believe. losing like this shouldn't happen, and i don't want it to happen any longer. coming off the field like this, that's not the situation i want. i'm doing everything i can to win this and get us winning again. >> the loss sends the redskins to 3-5, in last place in the nfc east. remember when we were first place, joe? next week the redskins play at miami. the dolphins just won their first game of the season yesterday. and a thriller in pittsburgh between the steelers and archrival baltimore ravens. the ravens engineered a last second comeback, scoring with just ten seconds left with former maryland terp torrey smith catching the game-winning touchdown.

patchy fog around the region this morning under a clear sky, which is clear all the way from new england all the way down to florida. we are right under the middle of it here. here's another view from the sky with the sky watcher camera. you can see the fog over the potomac river and the first light of the sun still hitting beautiful autumn color we have here in northwest washington. right now it is at or below freezing throughout most of west virginia, virginia, and maryland. it's frosty cold as well as the fog, near 40 in washington and by the bay. as the day progresses, our sunset, that's going to be early. 5:02. and before then, with the bright sunny sky, we'll have temperatures climbing into the low 60s by midafternoon. this evening, after our sunset at 5:02. we'll quickly get down into the 50s and near 50 by midnight under a clear sky. during the day tomorrow, bright and sunny and mild. highs reaching upper 60s. on wednesday chillier, as we have clouds closing in ahead of a front that will sweep through on thursday. maybe give us a passing light
shower, highs near 60. sunny and chilly on friday. sunny over the weekend, saturday and sunday. afternoon highs near 60. danella, how's our traffic? >> good morning. if you're traveling eastbound route 50, the accident is almost completely cleared out of the roadway at lottsford vista. crews out of the roadway. earlier, the right shoulder lane got by. pretty soon, you'll get all of your lanes back. if you're traveling westbound 50, you're slow as you pass the accident. i'm seeing a lot of traffic on route 50. traveling the outer loop of the beltway, had an accident at colesville road. that's now out of the roadway. it's in the right shoulder lane. we're still seeing delays at new hampshire avenue. travel speed in this area, 23 miles per hour as you make your way towards i-270. and traveling 66 east at sudley road on the right-hand side, still see police there on the scene of the accident there. as you travel eastbound to the beltway, that's where you're going to see your delays. joe and eun, back to you. >> danella, thanks very much.
at 6:52, we have a traffic alert for drivers in northern virginia. this morning drivers will notice all four lanes of the inner loop of the beltway are now on a new bridge over route 123 in tysons corner. plus the route 123 north on ramp to the beltway is also open. crews wrapped up the weekend lane shift overnight. it is all part of the hot lanes construction project. 6:53 is the time. this morning a frostburg state university student is behind bars accuseded of killing another student. tracee wilkins is live in frostburg with the details behind this terrible attack. tracee? >> good morning, joe. the fight happened at this off campus party. i attended frostburg state university. this is my alma mater. this is something we never saw here, a memorial they set up in honor of this young woman who lost her life on this street. this is the second time a frostburg student has died to a violent attack at the hands of
another student in less than two years. a memorial service was held yesterday after 19-year-old kortneigh mccoy of baltimore was found stabbed to death outside of an off campus house. mccoy was a sophomore physics major, a residential assistant here, and she also sang in the school's choir. police have arrested and charged another frostburg student with the stabbing. 23-year-old shanee liggins of waldorf is now in custody and facing first and second degree murder charges. she was a business major. police say the stabbing happened when the fight spilled out of the house and into the street. the suspect lived in the home where the fight began, according to police. students who knew the victim are struggling to understand what could have possibly caused this fight. shanee liggins is being held without bond pending her first appearance in court. i'm tracee wilkins live this morning in frostburg. back to you in the studio. >> tracee, i understand frostburg is your alma mater,
and this is the second violent incident in two years. what was the reputation, the feeling at the school when you were there, and what's your reaction to what you're hearing the last couple of years? >> reporter: it's just very unusual, and the alumni here, we have all done what we can to come up to the university and try to reach out to the students, desperately concerned about what's happening here at the university. we think that a lot of this has to just do with kids bringing some of what they've experienced at home here to the university and not being able to make that transition. that's what appears to be the case here. but, again, this is just very unusual activity for this community, a very tight knit school, a medium sized school. all of the students know one another. to say it's unusual, it's just not enough to explain what it's been like over the last two years here. >> i'm sure they'll stay together and try to get through this. thanks very much, tracee wilkins. here's a look at the morning's top stories. today jurors will resume deliberating the fate of dr. conrad murray.
he is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of g michael jackson and faces four years in prison. to top officials from penn state university plan to turn themselves in to authorities today. they are charged with failing to report information about former assistant football coach jerry sandusky, who is now accused of sexually abusing eight boys at a camp he ran. herman cain dropped seven points in a new reuters ipsos poll, but the camp raised $2 million in the past week. cain is refusing to address allegations from two women who say he sexually harassed them in the 1990s. right now a 1,300 foot wide asteroid is headed towards earth, merely the size of an aircraft carrier. it will, though, miss the earth by 200,000 miles sometime tomorrow. >> is that all, tom? >> good thing it's zipping by. right now frosty cold and patchy fog. sunny later. highs reaching low 60s.
sunny tomorrow and warmer. might get showers thursday. danella, how's our traffic? >> traveling eastbound route 50 at lottsford vista. earlier lanes taken away. now your lanes almost completely back. traveling westbound, big delays in that area. back to you both. >> thanks very much, danella. mm. hey, hon. hey! hey, baby. [ car starts ] were you eating smoked sausage in here? no! no. could have gotten me one. i did. try the unmistakable flavor of dunkin' donuts new smokehouse breakfast sandwich, with smoked sausage from hillshire farm. america runs on dunkin'. don't miss the bold taste of the new smokehouse sausage sandwich from dunkin' donuts.
