    Westbound Highway 80 Reopens After Big-Rig Crash
    Forney Police Dept.

    The westbound lanes of U.S. Highway 80 in Forney reopened Friday afternoon after a tractor-trailer struck a guardrail and closed the highway earlier in the morning.

    Forney police said no damage was found on the bridge and crews worked into the afternoon to clear crash debris so that the roadway could reopen before rush hour.

    No injuries were reported.

    The bridge struck Friday is not far from a bridge hit last week when a rock hauler in the eastbound lanes struck an overpass near Pinson Road.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
