pennsylvania state police. >> our goal is to have the least amount of impact to the area so we're going to monitor the game and based on how the game is going we'll close it just before we think a celebration is going to start. >> reporter: most we talked to seemed fine with the celebration. >> we're ready. we had a party on saturday night to see the big game. that was so exciting. monday night's tough so we're deciding what to do. >> reporter: again, if you plan to exit from the blue route onto route 30 at some point in the evening state police will be shutting down those lanes just to route 30. also, another preparation under way now inside the practice facility on villanova's campus, we're told a mobile hospital is being set up mostly to deal with injuries, minor injuries, so that local emergency rooms are not overwhelmed should things get out of hand. deanna durante, "nbc 10 news." >> reporter: thank you. the davis center across the street from the pavilion where
4:04 pm

4:05 pm
i was a student manager in my years about a decade ago, i still am in close communication not only with the fellow student managers but the players, the coaches. i got a chance to talk to coach wright. he has been a trusted mentor of mine and asked about what he remembered about me when i was here from '03 to '06. not only did he remember me as a practice player but i played guitar which is interesting. and as you guys were alluding to there was a recent unfortunate tragedy in my life, i called it a basketball family but until two months ago i realized how close and important they are to me in my life and how important are as you guys are too, as part of my second family at nbc 10 and telemundo 62. it's close to my heart. in about a half hour. >> keith, that's at 4:30. that video you showed us i think that's before you were old enough to shave. we've gone full circle. >> that's good stuff. >> 18 years old.
4:06 pm

4:07 pm
a bar fight had mccoy and two off-duty police officers under investigation. nbc 10's aundrea cline-thomas was there when the d.a. made the announcement. tell us about it. >> reporter: the d.a. does not question whether or not the fight occurred. but the investigation could not determine from statements of the off-duty officers to witnesses how the fight began, and they said ultimately they could not bring charges that would be upheld in court. take a look at this video. the district attorney reviewed videos like this taken at recess lounge on february 7. they interviewed 27 people and looked at medical records and conclude there had was not enough evidence to press charges against lasean mccoy or anyone in the fight. the brawl was over champagne at the club. it's unclear who threw the first punch and if punches were in self defense. a major concern that the statements the off-duty officers
4:08 pm
gave were inconsistent with one another. >> what you've seen with the videos internally at the recess lounge, people all pulled out cell phones after a complete melee had broken out inside of the recess lounge. but no one had it going for us to know well, who threw the first blow. >> reporter: still the fraternal order of police said in a statement that the video should speak for itself. we have a crew speaking to representatives from the union. we're going to give you that side of the story as soon as it becomes available. reporting live in center city, aundrea cline-thomas, "nbc 10 news." something to cheer about. philadelphia's self-proclaimed answer and now former 76er alan iverson answering the call to the hall. a.i. effected to the memorial basketball hall of fame class of 2016, elected in houston, texas along with shaquille o'neal and

yao ming. a.i. spent most of his career here in philadelphia, he was also an 11-time all-star who was named rookie of the year when he began. iverson reflected on the honor today. >> i just thank everybody that helped me, man. you know what i mean. you can't do this by yourself. you can't do it on your own. you need so many people, you need your teammates, you need the coaches to put you in position. >> the 2016 class will be enshrined during hall of fame festivities september 8-10. now to a developing weather story. we're tracking rain this afternoon, there it is on the first alert radar. >> let's get to nbc 10 first alert meteorologist sheena parveen. >> talk to us about the timing. >> the timing, we're seeing it through part of the area. really, the rest of the area will continue to see it move through for the evening commute. so it will be around on the major interstates, while a lot of you are driving.

4:12 pm
track. the operator would have had little time react to an approaching train. today the mayor of chester thanked the first responders but he, too, is waiting for the findings, he wants to know why this accident happened and why two veteran amtrak workers lost their lives, 30 others suffered mostly minor injuries. >> this is hard. this is hard. it's painful. and it's tragic. but hopefully at the end of the day we'll all have learned something. >> tim furlong, "nbc 10 news." may recall this is the second deadly amtrak crash in our area in the past year. eight people were killed when this train derailed in philadelphia's port richmond neighborhood more than 200 were hurt in this may 12th derailment. amtrak train 188 was traveling twice the posted limit when it hit a curve and crashed. >> state control over atlantic city now has the support of a dozen democratic lawmakers in the garden state. today new jersey governor chris

4:14 pm
for candidate john kasich to quit the race. kasich responded at a town hall meeting saying he won't drop out because he's the only candidate that can beat hillary clinton. his campaign called on trump to drop out before the convention since he won't have enough delegates to win outright. people would rightly revolt, that's what ted cruz says will happen if somebody gets the nomination who didn't run, such as mitt romney, today in wisconsin cruz said that someone other than cruz or trump winning the nomination at a contested convention is a pipe dream. >> democrat hillary clinton praised the state's boost in the minimum wage. she backed a national minimum wage. the mandate could help everyone's paycheck. in wisconsin today, bernie sanders told a group of union workers he is committed to creating an economy for all americans, not just the top 1%. he praised trade unions for giving the united states its

as we go through tonight, as the rain starts to leave, temperatures start to drop off. we had a lot of stuff in the forecast the next 24 hours, a freeze warning out for cold temperatures, that's because of the vegvegetation, the spring plants, those could be damaged in some areas. we also have more rain in the forecast before the week is over. a lot of things happening. look at the temperatures, 45 allentown, 55 in westchester, 58 in philadelphia but 70s farther to the south. the rain has not moved through dover yet. it's still 70 degrees there and we're seeing sunshine. so it's still dry but in areas like wilmington starting to see rain moving in so cooling down to 61. here is a look at the radar. we mostly have light to moderate rain. i think we'll see more new jersey and delaware through tonight. but we'll zoom in. philly up to trenton, the major interstates here, this is pretty steady lighter rainfall moving in and that extends areas north
