STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep with world traffic news. Picton, Australia, suffered major delays when two drivers confronted each other on a one-lane bridge. Both felt they had the right of way. Neither yielded for half an hour.

Runners talk of hitting the wall but these runners had to stop to keep from hitting the train. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
