Witness says Luong was man on bridge

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Witnesses have identified an Alabama man as being on a coastal bridge the morning four young children were tossed to their deaths last year.

The testimony Tuesday came in Lam Luong's capital murder trial.

Jeff Coolidge said he was driving across the Dauphin Island bridge when he noticed a man toss a bundle over the side railing.

He pointed to Luong in the courtroom as that man.

Coolidge said he noticed three children in the van and later contacted police the next day when he heard about the missing kids.

 Three were Luong's children, the fourth was the child of his common-law wife and another man.

Frank Collier also identified Luong as being on the bridge when Collier said he drove past Luong's parked van on Jan. 7, 2008, the morning the children died.
