abc's senior meteorologist rob marciano leads us off tonight. >> reporter: tonight, dangerous conditions across the midwest now churning east. >> accident on the eisenhower at austin. >> reporter: black ice and zero visibility in snow triggering this 14-car pileup overnight on the eisenhower expressway in chicago. one person killed, four injured. icy roads making for some white-knuckle driving across pennsylvania and ohio, too. ten inches of heavy, wet snow in some areas, at rates of two inches an hour, downing trees and knocking out power. snow in virginia, showering down on the cherry blossoms and forcing the washington nationals to call off that game today. wind chills there expected to fall into the 20s. temperatures plunging 20 degrees below average. freeze warnings stretching from connecticut to the carolinas. just two hours of subfreezing temperatures are enough to wipe out a crop. this north carolina farmer blanketing his strawberries just to keep them warm. >> there are no guarantees in
farming. we can't really do anything to control the weather. >> reporter: and these farmers in minnesota kicking off spring planting season with a tractor parade through heavy snow. lot of people putting their spring planting on hold here in central park. it's been a mixture of rain and snow throughout the day. this is the second wet snowstorm here in the month of april sol far, cecilia. remarkable. >> it's absolutely brutal, rob. so, break it down. how bad is it going to get? what are we in for? >> reporter: well, we still have snow that's falling in parts of southern jersey, where another one to three inches is possible. you see it there on the radar, as things rotate through, that will end from west to east tonight. already an inch-plus in atlantic city. temperatures are going to drop like a rock tonight. 30 in new york city. it will be freezing all the way down to columbia, south carolina. freeze warnings are posted. should also mention, a lot of rain in southern california. the rains that come tomorrow could very well be heavy enough to have some flash flooding, so,
we're watching that system, as well. seal s cecilia? >> does not feel like spring. rob, thank you. next to the fbi's most wanted woman behind bars tonight. brenda delgado was taken into custody in mexico. authorities call her the mastermind behind a murder for hire plot that left a dallas dentist dead. the arrest came 48 hours after investigators made her the ninth woman ever added to their most wanted it will. here's abc's phillip mena. >> reporter: tonight, the capture of a fugitive, after seven months on the run. brenda delgado now under arrest in northern mexico. the suspected mastermind behind the death of a dallas dentist who was gunned down in a parking garage. >> one female shot in the neck. >> reporter: the motive for the plot? investigators say, jealousy. hatcher was dating delgado's former boyfriend. >> it was a murder for hire. >> reporter: police say the suspected hitman, seen on this surveillance camera was promised drugs in exchange for killing hatcher.
that man and an alleged getaway driver arrested. but delgado fled shortly after police questioned her. >> what is left to do is to bring her to justice and have her answer for this crime that shocked our community. >> reporter: investigators believe delgado was hiding out in her native mexico. >> by placing her on the top ten list, it placed pressure on the mexicans to pick her up. it may also partly expedite the extradition process, that's probably going to begin very soon. >> reporter: to make a deal for her extradition, u.s. officials agreed to take the death penalty off the table. mexico opposes capital punishment. but delgado can still fight extradition herself, and delay a return here to dallas for months. se cecilia? >> phillip mena, thank you. a break in another manhunt to report tonight. anthony garver is now back in custody after escaping from a psychiatry hospital on wednesday. k-9 unit late last night helped police track him down. he was hiding under debris in
the woods. garver charged in the 2013 stabbing death of a young woman. police say that while he was on the run, he contacted his parents, trying to get a passport to flee to morocco. and now, to that breaking news overseas in those belgium terror attacks. you'll remember this surveillance video and that man in the hat inside the brussels airport. right there with the two suicide bombers and then caught on camera, again, in the moments after the blast. well, tonight, investigators say that man, mohamed abrini, has confessed to being that infamous man in the hat. abc's alex marquardt is in brussels tonight with more on how authorities say he got away. >> reporter: answers finally tonight in the frantic manhunt for the so-called "man in the hat" from the brussels terror attacks. according to belgian authorities, mohamed abrini, arrested friday, told them today that he is that man, seen with the two airport suicide bombers who targeted the departures hall. abrini allegedly leaving behind a bag of explosives before fleeing.
the escape caught on saur i hne le -- on surveillance cameras. the 31-year-old belgian was also the last known suspect of the november paris attacks, charged today with terrorist murders and participation in a terrorist group. authorities say his dna had been found at the brussels apartment, a virtual bomb factory, from where he and the other attackers left to the airport. new audio was released today believed to be one of them calling for the taxi. >> hello, madame, i would like a taxi at 7u15 in the max roosstreat 4." >> reporter: and the bags they used, the federal prosecutors said, were bought by this man, osama k., slapped with the same terror charges today. authorities say he was at the maelbeek metro station with the suicide bomber who blew himself up. the prosecutor's office tells us tonight that with all the video that they had of the man in the hat, abrini had no choice but to confess. authorities say that he threw away his tan jacket in the
garbage as he fled, and then sold that hat. cecilia? >> alex, thank you. we want to turn now to the race for the white house. another vote just coming in. bernie sanders late today declared the winner of the wyoming caucus. the vermont senator now claiming victory over hillary clinton in seven of the last eight states, but the next big fight, right here in new york. abc's mary bruce has this side of the story from the famed apollo theater. >> reporter: tonight, with that latest victory, bernie sanders is vowing to take the fight to the democratic convention. >> this looks like an audience that wants a political revolution. >> reporter: the sanders' campaign now saying if hillary clinton does not clinch the majority with pledged delegates before the convention, sanders will contest her nomination. winning new york in ten days is key to his strategy. >> if we can win here, it absolutely opens the door to a path toward victory to the white house.
>> reporter: sanders is closing in on pledged delegates, with about 45% of them so far, but clinton is still ahead. >> i'm going to keep going until i have all of the delegates i need to be nominated. >> reporter: in the bronx today, sanders' supporters told me, bring it on. >> that is a fight that i want. >> reporter: you're following bernie all day long, from one rally to another? >> yeah. >> reporter: that's devotion. sanders crisscrossing the state where he grew up with rally after rally. >> remember, this is secretary clinton's adopted home state. this is where -- >> reporter: clinton making a surprise stop at this brooklyn diner, enjoying some cheesecake, just not in front of the cameras. >> once you get all your pictures, you'll have to move elsewhere so we can actually eat. >> reporter: bernie sanders is now holding his fourth campaign event of the day here at the historic apollo theater. and despite the tough talk of a convention fight, when you look at the numbers, bernie sanders still faces a steep climb to the
nomination. cecilia? >> a steep climb, indeed. mary, thank you. we want to turn to the republicans now. donald trump in new york today, also, and he made a surprise campaign stop at the site of the 9/11 memorial. his wife melania right there with him. abc's david wright is in colorado tonight, where the fight for delegates is in overdrive. >> reporter: today, in lower manhattan, donald trump showed up at the 9/11 memorial. no tv cameras allowed inside, but surprised tourists snapped pictures of the brash billionaire and his wife. trump left after half an hour. for once, avoiding the reporters waiting to hear from him. this is the first time we have seen him in days. he spent much of the past week huddled with his top campaign advisers after that disastrous loss to ted cruz in wisconsin. that virtually ensures donald trump won't have a clear-cut convention victory. today, cruz is in friendly territory. >> god bless the great state of colorado. >> reporter: many of colorado's
37 delegates chosen today at the state party convention. >> go cruz! >> reporter: the process, a political version of speed dating. 600 wannabe delegates have ten seconds each to make their case. cruz is poised to win most if not all of them. overnight, trump tweeted bitterly, "isn't it a shame that the person who will have by far the most delegates and many millions more votes than anyone el else, me, still must fight." it seems cruz is outmaneuvering trump here, is that fair to say? >> outmaneuver -- i would really say it's the gop outmaneuvering trump. >> reporter: with a contested convention now very likely, the republicans are now looking to the long game, trying to build relationships with delegates who could swing the nomination. cecilia. >> david wright at a packed convention hall tonight, thank you. and we turn now to the fallout over bruce springsteen's decision to abruptly cancel a north carolina's concert.
tonight, the praise and the backlash pouring in from his own bandmates to a lawmaker who calls the boss a bully. here's abc's ron claiborne. >> reporter: tonight, a growing chorus for the boss, who's pulling the plug on his north carolina concert. >> you need to hurt them economically. that's the only thing they understand. you have to hurt people economically to have them do the right thing morally. this sort of thing is spreading like an evil virus around the country. >> reporter: springsteen and his band accusing the state of discriminating against transgender people, which requires a person to use the public restroom for the gender that's on their birth certificate. the rock legend saying, "some things are more important than a rock show." the payment service paypal had been planning to build a global operations center in north carolina. >> 400 new jobs right here in charlotte, north carolina. >> reporter: paypal says, not anymore.
another company, braeburn pharmaceuticals, says it is reconsidering a major expansion. governor pat mccrory refuses to back down. >> and that's frankly a policy and a standard that i think should remain. >> reporter: but these reactions signal that north carolina's move could sting economically, including the possible loss of next year's nba all-star game in charlotte, worth millions to local businesses. and that congressman who accused the boss of being a bully, he also said that springsteen is acting like a child. who gets upset and takes his ball and goes home. republican mark walker said other pop groups scheduled to perform, cecilia, in that state, will go on with the show. >> but it does seem like there's more backlash to come. >> reporter: certainly. >> ron, thank you. moving on to a rescue that seemed nearly impossible. a deadly plane crash in the remote mountains of alaska. this picture showing the impact. tonight, how they managed to save the sole survivor. here's abc's aditi roy. >> reporter: after a deadly plane crash, tonight, a miracle
rescue in the alaskan wilderness. morgan enwright and three others took off in a cessna 206 friday morning, on their way to angoon. but 20 miles shy of its destination, amid howling winds and mountainous terrain, the plane crashed. rescue workers finally making it to the crash, believing everyone to be dead. but then, a sign of life. >> when we approached the aircraft on foot, i saw an arm move. the best thing i ever saw in my life. >> reporter: enwright flown to the hospital. three others killed in the crash. rescue officials crediting enwright's stunning survival to where she was sitting, behind the pilot's seat. tonight, family members calling her a fighter. >> she's a strong girl. really strong. she's a tough one. we don't give up. >> reporter: aditi roy, abc news, los angeles.
