5:37 am
moderate for these conditions at this hour. i think a lot of people may figure that this of all of the bad driving conditions, this is probably the best, they want to get to where they're going before this freezes and turns in to rain. so again the rule is just caution. lots of distance between you and the car in front of you. and direct attention at the roadway. we are live on route 4 south, derrick ward, news 4 in storm tracker 4. 5:37. shocking claims have a former new york governor in new trouble. eliot spitzer is accused of choking a woman in her hid 20s at the plaza hotel in manhattan. spitzer resigned in 2008 after being linked to a prostitution ring. spitzer deny this ies this repo. investigators could have stopped the blimp that broke its mooring that eventuallyan
