There's traffic gridlock as drivers fight their way out of Houston but now there are concerns they could be driving straight into the eye of the storm.

A man is dead and eight others have been injured

in a fiery smash on a Melbourne freeway. A truck steam-rolled the dead man's car before both vehicles exploded. Flames lit up the crash scene just before 1:00 this morning. A prime mover rammed a Ford sedan, incinerated in the smash. The vehicle and its male driver in his 60s crushed under the truck's front end. Traffic was diverted around the scene for more than six hours this morning as accident investigators poured over the scene,

shocked by the force of the collision.

The impact into the Ford was devastating. It's just overridden it and the Ford's been jammed underneath the cabin of the truck. It appears the man's car sideswiped a four-wheel drive before it was hit by the truck. Police believe he may have been trying to avoid a taxi which had pulled over on the left-hand lane of the freeway to allow a passenger to be sick. Whether the Ford has taken evasive action or not we don't know. Whether the truck driver has seen the Ford in front of him or the taxi, they're all factors which are still being looked at. The car barely recognisable after its fuel tank exploded on impact. The driver had no chance of escaping the inferno. We're unable to determine how he's died, whether it's the fire or the injuries. The driver of the truck was just moments away from becoming the crash's second victim. He fled the cabin just seconds before it was engulfed in flames. Emergency crews amazed none of the other eight people involved were badly injured. A passenger in the four-wheel drive suffered broken legs, her 4-year-old child unscathed. Police expect to interview the driver of the taxi tomorrow. Gerard Scholten, Ten News. The mother and stepfather of a 6-year-old girl found dead in her Sydney home on Sunday

will appear in court today charged with her murder. Police arrested the 44-year-old woman and 55-year-old man late yesterday after a toxicology report on the girl revealed methadone was in her system when she died. The pair's in custody and will appear in Bankstown Local Court today charged with murder, supplying a commercial quantity of a prohibited drug and cultivating a prohibited plant. The child's stepfather has just been refused bail. Anger over high petrol prices is bringing our roads to a standstill - renegade truck drivers causing traffic chaos on our highways. But the PM is still resisting calls to cut the tax on fuel. The end of the road for Australia's truckies. HORN HONKS Fed up with the skyrocketing cost of fuel, drivers are blockading several major highways.

With the cost of filling an average rig now topping $2,000, the drivers say they are being forced out of business. This blockade on the Macksville Bridge near Coffs Harbour lasted eight hours last night. You're not doing good enough, John. You forgot the trucking industry, and we're important. I think we carry Australia, but you forgot us, mate. And there's the promise of more protests to come.

I am very conscious of how people feel about this. If the Prime Minister had hoped his concessions on petrol this week have taken the fire out of the fuel debate, he's sadly mistaken. MAN: You do not understand! If you understood, you'd do something about it. Mr Howard still insists his hands are tied, blaming the high prices on demand overseas, which is causing a shortage of petrol supplies. But it's set to get worse this weekend -

the arrival of Hurricane Rita in the Gulf of Mexico could destroy up to a quarter of America's oil reserves. But Mr Howard is confident his pledge to speed up the introduction of ethanol to Australia's fuel will help ease the strain. Well, ethanol is cheaper. The Prime Minister will meet oil companies next week. Fenn Kemp, Ten News. Claims Shane Warne's latest sex romp cost Australia the Ashes -

that story when Ten's Morning News returns. And Barry Gibb and Barbara Streisand guilty again.

This program is captioned live.

A near miss for a very lucky youngster when a car and horse float came crashing into her bedroom. Girl and horse both escaped injury - the house didn't fare so well. Most little girls would love a pony, but not quite like this. Madison Birmili was fast asleep last night when a four-wheel drive and horse float came crashing into her bedroom.

And I didn't even wake up. And then my dad came along and woke me up and jumped over the car. The car and float had ploughed through two fences, demolished part of the home's brick wall and pushed Madison's bed across her room. Even that didn't rouse her. She's a bit of a character, old Mad. Aren't you, darling? The owners of the show horse were out of their car and warming up the engine.

The horse has gone rank in the back of the float, pushed it down the hill with the handbrake on. The showjumper was due for competition this weekend, but that's now being reviewed. The horse is fine. Seems to be alright. Got a bit shaken up, but he'll be alright. As for Madison, she finally got back to sleep. While my brother's away 'llI have to sleep in his room because my room's, like, broken. Max Futcher, Ten News. Britain's tabloids say they've uncovered England's secret weapon in the Ashes series - a woman who kept Shane Warne up all night during the fourth Test. It's claimed Warne was exhausted after an all-night sex session the day before he was dismissed for a golden duck. Julia Reynolds has told at least two papers Warne wooed her with his traditional method - raunchy text messages, even during a rain break in the Test.

She says after the five hours of passion, Warne was left red-eyed and exhausted as he went out to bat the next day. Supermodel Kate Moss has apologised to all the people she's let down over her drug scandal. While stopping short of admitting to reports she has used cocaine and crack, she's issued a statement taking full responsibility for her actions and accepts there are personal issues she needs to address.

Moss says her behaviour has reflected badly on her family, friends and coworkers. The mother of one has lost multimillion-dollar contracts with a number of fashion houses since news broke of the drug allegations. The wheel problem which caused yesterday's fiery Airbus landing has happened at least seven times. sparked the dramatic emergency landing in Los Angeles

for the Airbus A320. Nobody was hurt in that landing or in any of the six previous incidents. US aviation authorities had not treated the problems seriously, ordering nothing more than seal replacements on the landing gear. It looks like history is repeating for Barbra Streisand and the most famous Bee Gee, Barry Gibb. 25 years after rocketing to number one with 'Guilty', their new reunion album is racing up the charts.

Gibb says they were both careful not to simply copy the first album. The only way we could approach it was to treat it like we were just doing another album again and to try not to think of that first album. And to that extent I think it worked. (Sings) # The hunger seizes me # And tears my soul apart. #

Gibb says there's now talk of a third album. Ahead, the latest on the AFL Grand Final Parade and team news. Plus, we'll also update the NRL finals. That's when Ten's Morning News returns. Also, Adam Scott helps the international team lead the USA in the Presidents Cup.

Lab mice are offering new hope for Down Syndrome researchers. In a controversial world-first experiment, scientists have transferred human chromosomes into a mouse.

These may look like ordinary mice, but in fact they're the next generation in genetic modification. They're the first animals in the world to have been given a human chromosome. That means they have got hundreds of human genes. The work carried out in this British lab is a historic achievement and is likely to transform our understanding of serious illnesses. I think our work would allow us to address complex genetic disorders caused by changes in many genes at once, something that was not possible with the previous generation of technology. The initial aim of the research is to help people like Owen.

He's 10, but he has difficulty reading. What does he have to do? Go. To?

To. His. Grass. It's because he has Down Syndrome. It means his brain develops slower than normal and he's also more vulnerable to a range of diseases. His parents welcomed the research. I think it's wonderful, anything that can be done to help children with Downs develop at a more average rate can only be good. The genes that build our bodies are contained in our chromosomes.

Most of us have 23 sets of them but people with Down Syndrome have an extra copy of chromosome 21. The researchers have taken human chromosome 21 and placed it in a mouse embryo.

The adult mouse also has an extra chromosome and so may have many of the symptoms of Down Syndrome. The hope is that these mice can also be used to study diseases that affect the rest of the population. to study diseases that affect the rest of the population.

Adam Scott teamed up with Retief Goosen to thump Tiger Woods and Fred Couples in the alternate shot format. COMMENTATOR: For eagle, and to win the hole. Mark Hensby joined forces with world number two Vijay Singh to tie Jim Furyk and Fred Funk. While Nick O'Hern produced one of the shots of the day. This long approach set up an eagle, but in the end he and South African partner Tim Clark were pipped by Phil Michelson and Chris DiMarco. All-Aussie pair Stuart Appleby and Peter Lonard were given a golf lesson by Justin Leonard and Scott Verplank. The weekend weather details when Ten's morning news returns.

A happy ending to an unusual kidnapping in Melbourne - two baby goats found safe and well after being stolen from the Show. The return of Frankie and Finkle seemingly something to crow about. ROOSTER CROWS Overjoyed - I want to run and jump

and tell everyone that we found our babies The kid-napping from the animal nursery at the Royal Melbourne Show

happened sometime on Tuesday night, sparking a massive manhunt. Yeah, we've had a missing persons report out for ages, but it's certainly not the type of lost kids we're used to dealing with around the Show. At first it was thought the pint-sized pair might have been playing the goat, but when a search of the grounds failed to find them authorities knew they had been fleeced. As far as I knew, this is the first time we've ever lost any animals, particularly from the animal nursery. After a sighting in the city, a mystery woman delivered the cute cashmeres to a suburban veterinary clinic. The delightful duo in good health,

hungry for love from relieved handlers. He's sleeping on the end of my bed tonight. Allan Raskall, Ten News.

A silverback gorilla has been left flat on his back amid a medical drama at Melbourne Zoo.

A team of helpers needed to remove alpha male Motaba from his enclosure

to be treated for a mysterious swollen cheek. The 150kg silverback was anaesthetised to allow medical teams to make a closer inspection. Unable to find any problems with the 22-year-old's teeth or ears, they'll conduct X-rays to determine to cause of the swelling. It's hoped Motaba will be back on display by tomorrow. That brings you up to date with all the news. Stay with Ten for updates throughout the day and the full details in Ten's news hour tonight. I'm Natarsha Belling.
