driver took off with the cop clinging to the windshield. the officer pulled the bus over, but the driver wouldn't show him his papers. villagers and other officers chased the gown and finally got the guy to pull over -- bus down and finally got the guy to pull over. apparently the bus driver spent four years in prison after a deadly accident. police suspect that's why he did not want to give his papers to the officer. this new street sign has d.c. drivers doing a double take sitting high above 295 to the entrance to the 11th street bridge. the interstate symbol looks right. the colored background is correct but 695 seems like a typo, but as fox 5 paul wagner shows us, there's no mistaken. >> reporter: just ask any cab driver in the city when you think 695 -- >> i would think of it as boston more further out. >> 695 is out there by 895 in baltimore. >> reporter: when you think of 695, what do you think of? >> baltimore beltway. >> reporter: but in recent weeks the d.c. department of transportation erected signs over 295 saying 695 was on
capitol hill. really? really >> a lot of the confusion came because people didn't realize we had an i-695. >> reporter: that's john lyle with ddot and he's right. you can google it. 695 is a stretch of the southeast freeway from the third street tunnel to the sousa bridge, but it was never marked. >> with the construction of the new 11th street bridges we requested and received approval from federal highway to designate the 11th street bridge as i-695 so that there would be a seamless connection from 295 on the east side of the anacostia river to 695 to 395. >> reporter: okay, makes some sense, but don't you think drivers unfamiliar with the area will see 695 and think baltimore? >> i would disagree that it's confusing. what i would say is that it's new. >> reporter: somewhere in the dusty history books at least on some maps the southeast freeway
was called 695, but nobody in my knowledge ever knew it as 695. heck, i don't know it as 695. i mean i see baltimore. i don't think washington d.c. in fact, veteran traffic reporter bob barber thinks it's so confusing he won't even mention it on the air. >> because i think people know where they're going. they may not know where they are at the moment and as such, i think it's only going to confuse the general public, our driving customers and me. i don't think it's going to help. i was surprised to see the sign below. >> reporter: so there you have it. 695 has always been in washington d.c. we just didn't know it. now did you know this? the southeast, southwest freeway is also the eisenhower freeway, but nobody ever calls it that. so as of now, the only signs for the 695 symbol are on the northbound side of 295 which notably is the way you would drive if you were trying to get to the baltimore washington
parkway and onto 695, the baltimore beltway. in the fox 5 newsroom i'm paul wagner. >> a bit confusing we'd say. 800,000-dollar spent on just one conference, a -- $800,000 spent on just one conference, a bogus ceremony just on get a taxpayer funded lunch. tonight officials at gsa knew trouble was brewing from this one. >> also the u.s. isn't wasting time hitting north korea where it hurts for its failed rocket launch.
president obama says he will work with the international community to further isolate north korea following its failed rocket launch. there was an embarrassing international failure when the rocket disintegrated over the yellow sea. now the world is bracing for what north korea will do to save face. >> reporter: it was the launch that wasn't, the controversial rocket lifted off early friday morning north korean time and promptly broke up in yellow sea about 100 miles off the coast
of south korea. it was so bad a failure the north koreans did something unusual. they admitton state tv and said the satellite failed to make orbit and scientists are looking into it. speculation centered on a problem with the guidance system. for the international media assembled in pyongyang there has been no response. there are charges it was a cover for a military missile test. >> so no confirmation of a liftoff or a failure, sir? >> reporter: the north korean regime trying not to let it spoil their party. sunday marks the birth of the north korean founder kim il song. alongside the statue of the leader was another statue of kim jong il. also attending, the son and grandson of those portrayed in the statues. undeterred by the results of that controversial launch the
leader appeared before his people trying to gather support for his regime, for his leadership. in fact, the launch failure was an embarrassment for the government. it built events around it and the theory is he will feel he has to act out further. there have been south korean intelligence reports north korea is preparing the testing of another nuclear device. those in attendance gave the impression they're on message and in line. i have confidence this man says that with kim jung eun we can face all the challenges and the tasks. kim jung eun got another high ranking defense title. greg talcott, fox news. now for more perspective associate professor of history in international affairs at gw greg brizinski. thanks for coming in. why would pyongyang take such a risk? it doesn't make them look more
aggressive. it makes them look for inept. >> i think they would take this kind of risk for a variety of different reasons, brian. first of all, they want to lionize their new leader kim jung an un. kim-- kim jung uen. part of this is to demonstrate his power and authority. >> doesn't this make him totally embarrassed now that he's taken over these titles and the first thing under his watch fails? >> absolutely. this is a huge humiliation for north korean and the new leadership. it's humiliating because it occurs after kim jung eun is taking on these new titles and it's also humiliating because it occurs on the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the birth of kim il sung. >> will they ratchet up the next move, i guess, in this chess game with the international community? >> well, many people are predicting that actually now
because they failed with this rocket launch, the next thing that they may do is test the nuclear -- it try to explode another nuclear weapon which would also be perceived as very dangerous and worrisome by the international community and would also intensify the confrontation that's now brewing between north korea and the rest of the world. >> is there any chance that the international community perhaps isn't reading kim jung eun closely enough? we don't know a whole lot about him. he's now potentially the big man in charge, although the military is taking a lot of that role as well. what if perhaps he's not trying to shake any cages? is there any potential he's actually trying to do something good for his country for once? >> we never can understand kim jung eun's motives completely because intelligence is limited. our access to north korea is limited, but i really don't understand what good he actually could be doing for his
country by spending $1 billion on a rocket launch when there's, in fact, widespread starvation throughout north korea at this point. so i mean we may not understand exactly what his motives were and what he's trying to achieve in terms of north korean diplomacy and security policy, but is he actually doing something that's beneficial for his country? i doubt it except in the sense that if he succeeded, it would have been a source of nationalist pride to some north koreans. >> thanks for coming in, professor. appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. tonight picking up the pieces in virginia beach following last week's jet crash into an apartment complex there. this is video from the crash. we'll show you in a second. amazingly no one was killed. today the navy hired professional movers to begin packing up belongings of the residents whose homes were damaged. the navy is also providing free housing referral services to the victims and has paid for

the unlucky day not much better for shoppers. uncle sam said you paid more for just about everything last month, especially food and gas and maybe that is why consumer confidence is falling. the numbers for early april show shoppers aren't nearly as happy as they used to be. meantime whole foods is hoping to drive some business in the motor city. the upscale supermarket chain is looking past detroit's crime and population loss and planning to open a 20,000 square foot store right in midtown detroit. as for all you last minute tax filers, this is your last weekend to finish those taxes. taxes are due tuesday, april 17th this year. you need some more motivation? more than 80% of last year's returns resulted in a refund. have at it. that's business. i'm neil cavuto. >> this fox 5 stock market report is brought to you by

an 8th grader claims he was suspended for hugging a teacher. brian blackmon said he and another boy were horseplaying during class and a teacher broke up the scuffle. brian claims he tried to thank his teacher by giving her a hug, but that's against school policy. >> i said thank you after she got done. i went to hug her. then she just snatched me up by the arm and drug me to the other teacher and started screaming in my face and saying i needed to be wrote up, that something serious needs to be done. >> brian's father filed a police report against the teacher and the school. officials aren't commenting. paperwork claimed the teacher repeatedly told ryan not to hug her and she felt threatened. coming up tonight at 11:00 chemical bottle bombs set off outside several homes in northern virginia, find out where it's going down on the news edge. >> plus this would be a good weekend to check out one of

strike back at the japanese. it was less a strategic or even tactical response to the japanese as much as a psychic response for the american people. >> reporter: all inned after the mission's fearless leader, lieutenant colonel jimmy doolittle the raid on april 18th, 1942 was manned as a one- way strike -- planned as a one- way strike against the japanese. >> tell them it's a secret mission. >> reporter: 16b-25 bombers launching from two aircraft carriers out in the stormy pacific. the story later told in the hollywood classic 30 seconds over tokyo. of are dropping their bombs on -- after dropping their bombs on military targets the raiders headed for china. >> we were sitting ducks 1,500 feet over the enemy's strong hold, broad daylight. >> there's 16 airplanes all of which were lost. the crews were temporarily lost, some confined, a few executed, one or two killed. most of the rest made it back safely and we have members still with us today.
>> our mane was hit and it was on fire. so we -- our plane was hit and it was on fire, so we just started bailing out and they captured me. >> crawled on the shore of that island, glad to be back on land and then the thought hit you, where are you at and what you got to do? here we are on this island way across the pacific. what do we do now? that was what was going through our head. >> reporter: the washington times recently interviewed on camera, three doolittle raiders, men now in their 90s. >> the hole from the airplane back to the leading edge of the wing was smashed. they hadn't been thrown out, they would have never gotten out alive. >> reporter: what mattered was that this raid allowed the american people to celebrate. craig simon, professor of history at the u.s. naval academy. >> defining success is important here. it was successful and achieved exactly what roosevelt, doolittle and others had hoped. it demonstrated we weren't going to lie down and take it,
that we could strike back. >> been a big part of my life, what i am and how i am and feel about things. i think it largely was affected by the experiences i had. >> reporter: seven decades ago, bob barnard, fox 5 news. >> now from one incredible story to another, going to be a good weekend. >> looking forward to it. >> however, a little adjustment in the forecast. >> going up. come on. >> no, no, not going up. >> go higher. >> a few more clouds tomorrow, that's all. brian would rather me take it to 92. >> i'm peopling it. oh, yeah. >> sunday or -- feeling it. oh, yeah. >> sunday or monday. >> i'm going monday. >> what is your official temperature for monday, brian? >> i'm going to say 90. >> he's going straight up 90. >> on the nose. >> on monday. we'll see what happens. i think we'll go 87 or something. may adjust that, though. i'm working sunday. in terms of the seating, pretty
good. temperatures have been dropping under clear skies and winds down to the south 5 miles per hour, temperature in the city 55, relative humidity as it typically does this time of the night, going up. 55 for quantico, gaithersburg 46, kind of cool, 41 for frederick, pretty chilly and then temperatures from winchester to martinsburg and hagerstown lower to mid-50s. pretty good weekend i think. i have increased the clouds for tomorrow just a little bit and i'll tell you why here in a second. we're still talking about a few spotty showers tomorrow evening and into tomorrow night. will everybody get wet? no, but some of us will have showers come across. warmest day of the weekend will definitely be sunday and we're getting dry out there. so we're going to need some rain soon. it looks like at least we have a chance. i know you have a chance tomorrow night, but that's not enough. maybe a couple days next week we'll have a chance for some showers and thunderstorms, but that kind of keeps changing,
too. saturday 74 and the change here would be for a little more in the way of high to thin clouds tomorrow morning and then probably by 4:00, 5:00, 6:00 tomorrow evening most of the sunshine will be gone in advance of those showers. we're sunny on sunday where the temperature will really jump for everybody up into the middle 80s. clear tonight, notice the clouds. this is the current satellite imagery. we have high pressure building aloft and typically when that happens, these clouds have a hard time maintaining themselves coming into that ridge of high pressure because all the air is sinking. it's warm aloft, not real conducive to clouds, but these are holding together pretty good. they're mainly high thin cirrus clouds. we'll see some tomorrow morning and through the day tomorrow things will thicken up a bit with the clouds. big goings on down in the central plains tonight, thunderstorms, severe thunderstorms coming into oklahoma just south of oklahoma city, a place called norman.
that's where oklahoma university is and they had a confirmed tornado down there with a lot of damage and possibly some injuries as well. a lot of this will translate into tomorrow. it looks like tomorrow afternoon and tomorrow night right through here northern texas, oklahoma, up into kansas, they will have a high probability of severe weather and they are very, very concerned with this chance tomorrow that there could be some large long lived tornadoes. so it could be very, very important to keep an eye on that part of the country for the weather hotspots tomorrow and tomorrow evening. really nice for us, though. of course, we'll have some clouds in here by sunrise, temperature down to right around 47 degrees or so. winds eventually become southwest and then it will start to bring in the warmth. tomorrow 74 here, a little warmer to the south and west and you notice frederick there tomorrow right up around 76 degrees. this is futurecast tomorrow afternoon, fairly clear at
