A major winter storm is on the way to the bluegrass state. Local high water issues are possible early Wednesday and that will be followed up by heavy snow and sleet. Significant accumulations are likely Wednesday night and Thursday.
The first part of the investigation into a horrific accident at Six Flags is now finished. Officials tried to figure out why a cable snapped on the "Superman Tower of Power" ride Thursday causing it to sever a 13-year-old girl's feet.
They're about to begin a new phase but wouldn't say exactly what that would be. There's still no word on the girl's condition.
