Tuesday Morning On WAFF 48 News Today

(WAFF) -


Good morning on this Tuesday! Trent Butler here to let you know what we're covering for you on WAFF 48 News Today. 

Today, we're asking leaders with the Madison County Schools why a bus driver was allowed to drive students even though he had a record that includes drug possession. State Troopers arrested James Watwood after his bus left the road and slammed into a mailbox Monday morning. 
Court records show Watwood was arrested for possession of hydrocodone in 2010. Madison County Schools Superintendent Matt Massey did not answer specific questions about Watwood's arrest. Madison County did release a statement saying this kind of behavior will not be tolerated. 
    
Jurors in the hit-and-run trial of Latonya Haley are bracing for another day of emotional testimony. Investigators say Haley was behind the wheel of a car that 
hit and killed an 8-year-old child and hurt his two sisters. The mother of the victim broke down on the stand and had to be carried out the courtroom on Monday. 

We'll also give you a preview of today's presidential primaries that are being held in Kentucky and Oregon. Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are battling for 74 delegates in Oregon and 60 in Kentucky. Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump is hoping add another 28 delegates from Oregon.
Trump won Kentucky's Republican caucus on March 5th.

We'll tell you how some women in Madison County can get free cancer screenings at Hudson Alpha Institute in Huntsville.
Plus, we'll show you why one couple decided that Costco is the perfect backdrop for their engagement photos!  

We hope you can join us for a busy Tuesday morning on WAFF 48 News Today!
