Durham Co. DA Wants Dixon Back in Court

Posted September 29, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— Virginia truck driver Esau Dixon might not be off the hook after all. The Durham County District Attorney is set to decide if Dixon should be re-tried in connection with a deadly accident last summer on Interstate-85 in Durham.

Prosecutors say Dixon's erratic driving caused the crash near Durham, but a jury could not decide.

The trial ended last week without a verdict.
