Truck with radioactive materials missing
A pickup truck carrying radioactive materials used in pipeline scanning equipment was swept from a bridge and disappeared in a swollen creek in Oklahoma's Pittsburg County, said Undersheriff Richard Sexton.
The truck's two occupants escaped unharmed, but efforts to locate the truck and its radioactive cargo were suspended after dark. He said officials hope the creek's level will fall enough on Monday to reveal the truck's whereabouts. A container with the material is bolted to the truck.

Also states that atomic material available on the black market is 3.5 ounces of weapons grade plutonium and that it is enough to make a nuclear bomb. Al qaeda and Iran are the most likely suspects for wanting to buy this material. Idk about CNN anymore...... o wait matthew bunn just stated that you cant make a bomb out of it so just disinfo from the CNN news person.
