— Two witnesses say the truck driver accused of causing last summer's deadly Intestate-85 accident was driving dangerously.

Eight people died.

Easu Dixon is on trial in Durham charged with manslaughter. Other drivers say he was weaving and speeding down the interstate. Dixon's lawyer says his client wasn't speeding and that he will prove the van Dixon hit pulled in front of him.
