Two separate accidents affect Memorial Parkway traffic; Arsenal commute no better

Good Wednesday evening to you!

Local and state school officials came together in Huntsville to discuss a somewhat controversial topic tonight. That being Common Core State Standards. Tonight's forum was an opportunity for people on both sides of the issue to come together and  discuss their opinions. At 10, reporter Shumuriel Ratliff will see if  the two sides were able to reach common ground .

It was a traffic nightmare for workers trying to get on Redstone Arsenal today. It  was all  the result of  recent  furloughs. Coming up at 10, why officials say today's  traffic mess was painful, but not unexpected. Can workers expect these delays for the foreseeable future?

Huntsville police are investigating an officer- involved accident that occurred this evening. It happened at South Parkway and Byrd Spring Road An officer was  heading to another accident when  his car collided with a pickup truck. We'll take you to the scene.

I hope you will join us tonight for WAFF 48 News at 10

I'll see you then!
