Thanksgiving travel will be rough due to severe weather, a car ends up wedged beneath an overpass on I235, Des Moines Police charge a woman with vehicular homicide, protests continue in Chicago, and Black Friday shopping starts early as stores open on Thanksgiving. 
As the largest number of Americans in eight years travel to their holiday destinations, most will not be able to avoid severe weather. Thanksgiving is bringing big helpings of ice and water to parts of the country. 
Parts of 17 states from California to Illinois are under a winter storm warning, watch, advisory or a flash flood watch.   
Back in the metro, a car ended up wedged beneath the Martin Luther King junior overpass last night, backing up traffic on I235 for more than half a mile.
Officials say they had to cut open the car to rescue the three passengers. They were all taken to the hospital, with non life-threatening injuries.
Deanna Gliem has been charged with four counts of vehicular homicide in connection with a deadly car crash on Hubbell Avenue. The crash happened on November 15th at East 37th and Hubbell.
Police say Gliem was heading south on Hubbell when she hit the victims' car at the intersection.
Richard Hummel and Randall Sonnenburg died on scene.
More protests following the release of dashcam from the fatal shooting of a chicago teen by a police officer. Now, a watchdog group has uncovered police reports showing 20 civilian complaints against officer Jason Van Dyke.
He has been charged with first degree murder in the death of Laquan McDonald.
The Thanksgiving meal may not get finished before its time to get "Black Friday" shopping underway. Despite tomorrow being one of the biggest shopping days of the year, some big stores plan to open as early as 5 p.m. this evening to get an early start on all of the sales.
