The pictures are from tonight.
I think the photos from last year and this year have the same file names. That could cause last years news report to display the incorrect images.
elbafatal.jpg and elbafatal-2.jpg. Try naming them by including a date in the file name, such as: elbafatal_01_110811.jpg and elbafatal_01_111612.jpg
The pics from a year show 2 different cars. The video from last year on WBTA show the 3rd picture car which is not the same car in this report.
Inadvertently, I used the same file name for the photos for this accident as for the one last year. Last year's photos must have been over written by this year's.
The other story has been corrected.
I'm a durned genius
I never worry about name conflicts too much, but got caught on this one. Our old image upload system would automatically resolve name conflicts by renaming uploaded files on the fly. Sadly, that no longer happens.
Sad. With all the safety features on todays vehicles still not safe enough...a twig could cause extensive damage
