two philadelphia police officers, undercover officers. they were driving back to central detectives within they were hit along broad street by a black sedan. that black sedan kept driving. and that sedan has not been found yet. a witness to that crash stopped, got out of the car. here's where it gets really strange, police say. this witness was not a good samaritan. he simply told police he was nervous, he was scared by the crash scene that he was driving upon, so he got out of his car, left it in drive, so it kept moving forward. here's another crazy part. two men who were walking on the sidewalk near where all this was happening, they jumped in this white suv and took off driving with it. they drove several blocks. they turned up a one-way street where they hit two cars. they hit one of those cars head on. those two men who in essence stole this white suv got out and
according to witnesses with be they ran to a nightclub not far from where i'm standing right here along broad street, went in that nightclub. one of them took off a red hooded sweatshirt that he felt was an identifying marker and those two men have not been found. police have canvassed this area. they went to that nearby nightclub. they did find a discarded red roaded sweet shirt. at this time, pless are lo-- po are looking for the driver of the black sedan that initially struck the pickup driven by the two undercover police officers. those two officers were taken to hahnemann hospital. one suffered a concussion. the driver of the police vehicle was also injured. i'm told both of them are expected to recover.ç
they really just have minor injuries. we'll have another update for you at 6:00. i just finished talking with the chief inspector on scene. he has a little more insight to what went on here this morning. reporting live in fairmount, katy zachry, nbc 10 news. we pivot to national politics. another big night for presidential front-runners, donald trump and hillary clinton. >> trump swept all five states, clinton took four out of five. both of them are even closer to a nomination. nbc 10's matt delucia joins us live with an update on the delegate count and what's next for both of them. matt? >> both hillary clinton and donald trump got closer to their party's nomination last night. let's take a look at the delegate count in just a moment. first we'll look at some of the exit polling results from nbc news. 70% of the republicans who were polled say that the person with the most votes, the candidate whoette goods the most votes during this primary season should become the republican nominee. then you also have four in ten republicans who say they are scared or concerned about a trump presidency.
and 14% of the democrats say they would not vote for hillary clinton. another interesting point, two-thirds of democrats think that clinton rather than bernie sanders has the better chance of beating trump in november. let's take a look at the delegate count. what you're looking at right here is results before yesterday's primary. hillary clinton picked up an estimated 105 delegates from pennsylvania, 16 from delaware, all together now she sits at 2,117 delegates. you see how close she is to that 2,383 that is needed to win the democratic nomination. let's hear now from hillary clinton and bernie sanders after the primary results last night. >> i want to thank all of you for being prepared to stand up, fight back and make this country the nation we know it can become. >> let's go forward, let's win nomination and in july, let's
return as a unified party. >> all right. let's take a look now at the republican side. ts in, this is what the rew were in terms of delegates before yesterday's primary. you had donald trump picking up 20 delegates out of 71 for pennsylvania because of the uncommitted delegates that the state has. delaware, he got 16 delegates. all together donald trump has 954 delegates as of right now. as i try to draw that on there. he needs 1,237. he's about 37% on the way to that republican nomination. let's take a listen from donald trump and ted cruz. >> as far as i'm concerned it's over. these two guys cannot win. there's no path. why would i change? if you have a football team and you're winning and then you get to the super bowl, you don't change your quarterback. right? i'm not changing. >> this race is real, real simple. donald trump and hillary clinton are both big government
liberals. they both think the federal government is the answer to every problem. >> the fight continues on both sides. the ap is also reporting that clinton is about 90% of the way to sealing the democratic nomination. so more states to go, not many, but all the campaigns still in the battle ground. we'll have more on the local rules for our area, delaware and pennsylvania, coming up at 6:00. guys? now to the local races. katie mcginty says she's ready to get to work after winning the democratic nomination for u.s. senate in pennsylvania. >> she beat out joe sestak who nearly won the senate office six years ago. mcginty spoke to us about her plan to win the race in november. >> i think it's really going to be about just reaching out to voters and hearing the challenges that people are facing. >> mcginty will face republican incumbent pat toomey in november. now to the race for pennsylvania attorney general. >> montgomery county commissioner josh shapiro won
the democratic nomination. >> so many people told us talon the way that a pragmatic progressive reformer couldn't win a statewide race. friends, we showed them that we could do it the montgomery county way. thank you al&hvery, very much. >> shapiro defeated allegheny county d.a. stephen zappala and northampton county d.a. john morganelli. in november he'll face john rafferty also from montgomery county. both vying to succeed democrat k kathleen kane who is not seeking a second term. if you have the nbc 10 app, you're getting realtime updates. see all the results for the races that impact you and what's next for the nominees. 5:38. after 13 years, a philadelphia neighborhood is getting some closure. police say they have finally found the arsonist who killed five people in a home in olney.
