Police seek hit and run driver 

Anniston police are searching for a vehicle and it’s driver responsible for the hit and run death of A 49-year-old Blue Mountain man early Thursday morning.  49 year old Freddy Joe Smith, was struck while walking in the 2500 block of Norwood Avenue around 5:15 Thursday morning, Coroner Bill Partridge said that Smith died of massive head trauma.  Investigating officers said there appeared to be no indication that the vehicle that struck Smith attempted to stop and that it appeared that the victim was struck and rolled up onto the vehicles hood, windshield and roof.

Police are continuing to search for a suspect in the death.


Weaver man killed in three car accident 

One person was killed and two others injured in a three vehicle accident Thursday afternoon four miles north of Anniston on Highway 431.  According to state troopers, 83 year old Edward Maier of Weaver was killed in the accident, he was driving a 2003 Chevrolet.  38 year old James Shell and a passenger in his 1996 ford two year old Nicholas Shell were both injured and taken to Regional Medical Center.  The driver of the third vehicle, a 2001 Toyota was identified as Herbert Stevens of Alexandria, he was not injured. 



New trial sought for Ashville teacher 

Attorneys for a former Ashville High School teacher and coach convicted and sentenced for the second-degree rape and sodomy of one of his students is seeking a new trial. Pell City attorney Don Hamlin asked St. Clair County Circuit Court Judge Charles Robinson this week to grant a new trial or order an acquittal in the state’s case against Donnie McKay.   Two months ago, Robinson sentenced McKay to serve 15 years for the rape of a 15-year-old student and another 10 years for the second-degree sodomy of the student. The teacher and student had consensual sex, according to testimony during McKay’s trial in August. Hamlin told the judge the court erred in allowing the victim’s diary into evidence, and the judge visited jurors while they were in the jury room deliberating the case. Hamlin told Robinson he entered the jury room and stayed a few minutes when the jury became hung in the case. He said that action warranted a new trial.  Judge Robinson told defense and prosecution attorneys he would take the request for acquittal or new trial under advisement. A jury convicted McKay of the rape and sodomy of his former student on Aug. 31, 2006, and Robinson sentenced him to 25 years in prison in early October.  


Goodyear talks continue 

Union members walking picket lines say they hope no news coming out of renewed contract talks with Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. means progress is being made.  The United Steelworkers union representing some 15,000 striking Goodyear workers in the United States and Canada and the Akron-based company have not talked about their negotiations that resumed Monday in Pittsburgh.  Both sides confirmed Thursday that the talks were ongoing. The strike began Oct. 5.  The current talks are the first meetings since negotiations in Cincinnati broke off Nov. 17 after four days.  The union and Goodyear have disagreed over health care proposals for retirees and plans to close a Tyler, Texas, tire factory.
