Good Monday evening.
We're working on the latest details into an explosion at a Madison County business. The explosion happened this afternoon at Tennessee Valley Auto Salvage and Used Car in Hazel Green. A child was injured and flown to the UAB Burn Center in Birmingham. WAFF 48's Lauren Bale has been on this story all day and will have the latest on what might have caused the explosion.
Alabama's Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard has been indicted on 23 counts of ethics violations. He's accused of using his office to steer business to his firm. Mike Hubbard states that this is nothing more than a political “witch hunt”, and questions the timing of this charge so close to the November election. We'll have more on this breaking story we first brought you earlier this evening.
And we're also following a Huntsville police officer-involved shooting from Sunday. The victim has been identified as Kendall Jordan Westbrook. We'll have the latest from Huntsville Police Chief Louis Morris on the shooting.
Join us for these stories and much more tonight at 10.
See you then,
