ATLANTA (AP) – Cell phone giant Sony Ericsson is moving its North American headquarters from North Carolina to Atlanta as part of a global consolidation that will cut about 2,000 jobs.

Sony Ericsson spokeswoman Stacy Doster said Atlanta was chosen in part because of its proximity to AT&T Inc., one of the company’s largest customers. She also said the city is desirable as a “gateway into Latin America” because of its international connections through Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

She said the 8-year-old company had about 420 jobs at the headquarters in Research Triangle Park after shedding hundreds of jobs. She said she’s uncertain how many of the employees would be moving to Atlanta.

The restructuring is part of a company strategy to cut its worldwide staff of 10,000 by 20 percent.

ATLANTIC BEACH, N.C. — At least one person was injured after a boat hit a high-rise bridge on the North Carolina coast.

The Daily News of Jacksonville reported the boat with three people on board hit a piling on the bridge between Atlantic Beach and Morehead City about 5 p.m. Tuesday.

The Atlantic Beach Fire Department said one person on the 20-foot boat was flown to a hospital for treatment. The names of the people on the boat were not available.

Ensign Caleb Peacock says the Coast Guard sent a helicopter and rescue boat. Emergency personnel also worked from the top of the bridge.

Police say one lane on the bridge was closed to give crews room to work, but the bridge was not damaged and remained open to traffic.
