Texas Coverage 8.5

The number of human West Nile cases in Texas may have grown by two. On Monday, health officials said the number now stands at 10. Both of the new suspected cases are in Dallas County. The other eight are in southeast Texas counties. All eight of those people are expected to recover. Samples from the two possible Dallas County cases have been sent to Atlanta for additional testing and confirmation.

The clean up continues in El Paso on Monday after heavy rains flooded streets and left some motorists stranded. Low lying areas quickly flooded on Friday after nearly an inch and a half of rain fell in just 45 minutes. The flooding also caused traffic to stand still on highways and roads throughout El Paso. Fortunately, no one was injured.

An accident along Interstate 20 ended with yet another person dead Monday morning. It happened at around 4:30 in Smith County east of Dallas. DPS troopers say a heavy duty pick-up truck slammed into the back end of an 18 wheeler that was pulled over on the side of road. The driver of the pick-up died at the scene. Three passengers inside the pick-up were injured including a 65 year-old woman who is listed in critical condition.

A former San Antonio anchorman will now spend the next five years in prison. Gerry Grant pleaded guilty on Monday to possessing child pornography. Grant, a former weekend anchorman at the ABC station in San Antonio, was arrested back in October of 2000. Grant could have received up to 10 years in prison if he had gone to trial.
