6:32 pm
i'm -- it's just sad. >> reporter: this blast, the second in two days. a massive pileup on i-88 sunday amid whiteout conditions. no fatalities here, but south of boston, two people inside this bmw killed after a rotted tree cracked in the wind. brian easton watched it all happen. >> ran out to the car and screamed a couple of times, "are you okay? are you okay?" >> reporter: wind gusts near 75 miles an hour in spots. more than a hundred thousand losing power. >> i don't want any more of this. that's where i'm at right now, honestly. >> reporter: and tonight, mother nature messing up baseball's opening day. home openers in cleveland and new york, postpones. >> a lot of people saying, enough already. looks like the middle of winter there behind you, rob. >> david, the snow here that falls will stick around, because the air is going to be brewtily cold. a shushy commute here. look at the radar. we're looking at the western edge of this snow, heading to the east.
6:33 pm
and look for things to wrap up over the next couple of hours. the cold front behind this sending temperatures, in d.c., down to 33. so, slushy, untreated roads will freeze over tonight and even if you are not in the snow zone, wind chills tomorrow are going to be brutal. 22 in cincinnati. 16 in pittsburgh. and the pattern is such, david, that we'll probably see a bit of a cold air mass in place right on through the early part of next weej. >> rob marciano live tonight, rob, thank you. we turn next tonight here to breaking news from tennessee at this hour. a sight-seeing helicopter crashing near severeville, tennessee, that's next of knoxville. the faa now confirming the bell 206 helicopter destroyed by fire upon impact. local authorities say five people are believed to be dead in that crash. we'll stay on that tonight. we turn next this evening to the deadly amtrak crash near philadelphia. investigators talking just a short time ago, but much of this remains a mystery tonight. the train was headed from new york to georgia when it slammed
6:34 pm
into a backhoe on the tracks. two workers on those tracks were killed. and this evening, images from inside the train now. passengers thrown into the aisles. tonight, abc's david kerley with the key questions. why was the backhoe there? and why didn't the train's new braking system help prevent the collision? >> train 89 just hit a backhoe -- >> reporter: tonight, we know it was a tragic and deadly mistake that put those two amtrak workers and their backhoe on the same rail line as a speeding amtrak train. but whose mistake is still a mystery. it was just before 8:00 in the morning -- >> and then there was a big explosion. then there was a fire. then the windows bursted out. >> reporter: the damage to the lead cars, as these photos show, is striking and significant. and so were injuries to about 30 passengers. this doctor jumped into action, finding one woman who was bleeding profusely. >> she was trembling and shaking. she could not speak. >> reporter: investigators have the event recorder and video from the train.
6:35 pm
>> the video shows there was construction equipment and work train equipment immediately adjacent to the train's track. >> reporter: investigators says the train was traveling at 106 miles an hour, under the 1 110-mile-an-hour speed limit. five seconds before impact, the amtrak engineer applied the emergency brakes, but should not stop before hitting the backhoe. amtrak has installed what is called positive train control here on the northeast corridor, but it's a system that detects only a violation of the speed limit. not obstructions on the track. david? >> david kerley with us tonight. thanks, david. and from indonesia tonight, two planes colliding at the airport in jakarta. a boeing 737 had been cleared for takeoff, but then colliding with a smaller plane. the collision setting off a spark that turn into a giant fire ball. fire engines rushing to the scene. the passengers evacuated down the emergency slides. everyone did survive. back here at home tonight, a

6:37 pm
trump's aides privately concede he will probably lose wisconsin, as he now fights another battle -- struggling to repair his image with women. >> nobody has greater respect for women than donald trump. nobody. nobody. >> reporter: and again, enlisting his wife, melania. >> my wife is coming up, she's going to campaign. >> reporter: and even his ex-wife, ivana, talking up trump's respect for women in an interview. but a demeaning comment about immigrants from the former mrs. trump, an immigrant herself, now grabbing more attention. ivana trump saying, "we need immigrants. who is going to vacuum our living rooms and clean up after us? americans don't like to do that." trump trying to bounce back after a rough week. from his campaign manager charged with battery to multiple fumbles on abortion, including this latest one -- >> at this moment, the laws are set. and i think we have to leave it that way. >> reporter: trump later clarifying that as president, he would fight to make abortion illegal. but as trump trips, senator ted cruz also facing some tough
6:38 pm
questions tonight. asked about a "national enquirer" report citing rumors of mare marital inif i tefi tei? >> have you commited adultery? >> i have not. that attack was complete and utter garbage. it was complete lies. >> not going to be any e-mails or texts or videos surfacing? >> it's completely made-up nonsense. it's simply not true. i have always been faithful to my wife. i love my wife. >> reporter: afterward, i spoke with cruz, who has been campaigning with his wife, heidi, and their two daughters? does it both ert you, where the tone of this campaign has gone with your wife and girls here? >> we're not paying attention to it. one of the dynamics we've seen more and more is donald trump's angry, screaming, cursing, yelling attacks. people are tuning it out. they've discovered that's the one thing he knows how to do. >> reporter: now, heidi cruz getting a half-hearted apology from donald trump. the billionaire voicing some rare rejects about retweeting this unflattering image of her. >> i could have done without the
6:39 pm
retweet, et cetera, et cetera, but i think i'm doing okay. >> reporter: and now, trump trying to turn the page, unveiling a new doomsday prediction, this time about the economy. >> we're going to go into a massive recession, but i also say, if i'm president, that's not going to happen. >> and tom llamas with us live from wisconsin. tom, donald trump says he's going to win tomorrow. but what are you hearing from his aides tonight? >> reporter: well, david, some inside the trump campaign are telling us that they think ted cruz will win here tomorrow. if that happens, it's going to be incredibly hard for trump to win the nomination outright, by collecting enough delegates. that would lead to a contested convention, and what could be an epic battle on the convention floor. david? >> tom llamas, thanks. and from the democratic side tonight, bernie sanders vowing if he wins wisconsin and then here in new york state, where hillary clinton was senator, of course, then he'll land the nomination. tonight, how clinton responds, when asked, does she need a win in new york to close the deal?
6:40 pm
and, we do the math tonight. what would bernie sanders have to do from here on out to win the nomination? abc's cecilia vega on the campaign trail for us again tonight. >> reporter: on the eve of tomorrow's big wisconsin vote, a tale of two very different campaigns. senator bernie sanders feeling confident, wooing union workers and taunting his opponent. >> i don't want to get hillary clinton more nervous than she already is. so, don't tell her this, but i think we win here, we win in new york state, we're on our way to the white house. >> reporter: behind in the polls in the badger state, hillary clinton hunkered down in her home state. on "gma," george stephanopoulos asking her if new york is a must-win. >> don't you have to win your home state here in new york in two weeks? >> well, i'm going to do everything i can to win in as many places as possible. i'm going to do everything i can to win new york, i represented new york for eight years. i care deeply about this state.
6:41 pm
i'm proud of the work that i did with so many thousands of new yorkers. so, of course i'm going to work incredibly hard. >> reporter: despite a string of defeats, clinton inching ever closer to that nomination. even if sanders wins wisconsin, for him to become the nominee, he would still need to win nearly three-quarters of the remaining delegates and pull off some major upsets. >> let's win tomorrow. thank you. >> reporter: and he says that could happen. and david, we just got a copy of a memo that hillary clinton's campaign manager is about to send to supporters tonight. in it, he sails, quote, hillary clinton has built a nearly insurmountable lead among both delegates and actual voters. they are clearly trying to reassure voters ahead of what they are bracing for, a loss tomorrow. david? >> cecilia vega in upstate new york for us tonight. cecilia, thank you. next, this evening, the u.s. justice department is now investigating what some are calling the biggest data leak in history, involving world leaders and where some of them are
