comparatively speaking, 58 degrees mount pocono, 59 in allentown 59 in reading 70 in philadelphia, you move to the south we've got 63 in atlantic city and wildwood, 59 degrees in millville. a comfortable morning out there. like we said, enjoy it, because we could be setting up for our first heatwave of 2015. today we will get close to 90. but probably won't make it, it will be warm, it will be sunny, and it will be 87 degrees. tonight, around 68, few clouds here and there that is your wednesday foxcast wait until you see the temps we have for the end of the work week, it is all coming up in the seven day forecast, bob kelly is here right now. are you feeling the love in the room? >> i'm feeling the love in the room. we should all start with a little group hug and kiss in the morning okay? >> i'm ready. i'm in. >> much better, off to good start. all of the love going on out here on the roadways not bad at all this morning it, does feel nice opening up the front door walk into get your morning coffee, if you are driving south on 95, good
shape here, live look at 95 right near girard avenue. you have the skyline in the background crews still out there, their normal spots right near girard also working up near cottman avenue. and they are also working downtown on the vine street expressway. right now currently the eastbound lanes remain closed between the schuylkill and broad street. the westbound lanes are open. so again if you are coming into the city in the next hour or so, again, it is that eastbound side between the schuylkill and broad street. so you can exit at spring garden and work your way over or go to the next exit which is south street, same deal work your way over to the number streets and you'll be in good shape. what a mess yesterday all day, on this northeast extension, here's what happened. water from the weekend all of the heavy rains, washed out the right lane and shoulder just south of the lansdale interchange, right in the work zone. so they had to pour all new concrete bottom line, everything is open for the beginning of our morning rush hour so all southbound lanes between quakertown and
lansdale should be good to go. mass transit looking fine chris, lauren, back to you. >> bob, thanks. 4:00 # four, to the breaking news man hit by car on the roosevelt boulevard. >> now police are looking for the driver. steve keeley live where this all happened. steve, what can you tell us? >> it seems like we report on hit-and-run on the show every day, and today both jenny joyce and i are on hit and runs. they have a lot in common. simply because nobody knows anything about the cars that hit both gentlemen. this is the latest hit-and-run, only two and a half hours old see police completely left the scene. they may come back later. but the problem with anything happening on the boulevard this road is strewn with car part from as far as ten years ago probably, but they look for fresh car parts, didn't find any all they found after they got several 911 calls from witnesses was this poor guy laying in the road 25 years old now critical knocked out of his shoes here's chief inspector scott small with what little police know right now.
>> impact cautioned the 25 year opened victim to come out of his shoes no part of the striking vehicle that we can see in plane view on the boulevard. how much, we believe that the striking vehicle will have some front end damage. and there are several businesses on both sides of roosevelt boulevard that do have cameras. so hopefully those cameras recorded something that can help us with this investigation. well here we go being back to the live picture if we can, and show you north front street at the boulevard and the problem is there are no businesses at this intersection, even though it is a busy intersection, and chris will spin around about 10707 degrees and show you the closest business which is a dunkin' donuts at rising sun avenue. and now why a donut shop with a camera pointed block away, but the problem is maybe they'll look at the time line. they figure this guy was hit about 1:30, so the last
dunkin' donuts, but this happened on the inner lanes they think. i say they think because when people are hit by cars they get thrown sometimes as much as over 100 feet. so they think he was hit in the inner lanes. so if there was a camera from the dunkin donut you believe it would be on the closer outer lanes at best. so that's the problem. no video there are some witnesses that saw the aftermath, and they think it was a dark car. but it is such a vague description, they may maybe a honda, acura and it doesn't help. there are only 8 million of those in this country. so what they have is a poor guy who was hit and hopefully in both cases these victims heal enough and maybe remember enough where they can tell police what happened to them. but as you hear jenny say shall the victim like this case not really able to say anything right now. they are going to be the best wednesdays again if you remember sometimes when you get hit by a car, you didn't see it coming so even if they do remember, the last thing was feeling hit and thrown, they're not maybe going to remember what it was because they never saw it to begin
with chris, lauren? >> and you don't see it coming on the boulevard either. speed limit there what 40, 50 miles per hour? people go 60, 70, just whip down the road. >> speed limit 45. people have been clock doing over 100 on this boulevard. couple of police cars you see going by with the light on, they are constantly patrolling this road, but unfortunately no cops around at the time when this happened to get right on top of it. but they're not finding any car part. what they do think front end damage also unusual in a hit-and-run so the accident investigation team will come out later but as hard when you have a busy 12 lane highway like this with people speed to go shut this down on morning rush hour when there is no obvious evidence. but you can bet the investigators will come out here and look for something when there is sunlight today. >> gosh it is crazy out there sometimes. steve, thanks, 4:07 is your time. also new from overnight philadelphia police looking for a shooter in the city's kensington section. the shooting happened 1900
block of east 1st st. just around 12:30. the victim was taken to the hospital. police are not releasing his condition. happening now philadelphia police are looking for any clues in a hit-and-run that happened early yesterday morning. >> local actor was critically injured and police say they have little evidence to go on at this point. let's go to jennifer joyce, jennifer good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning chris lauren well as steve keeley was saying, there are a lot of similarities between our two hit and runs. big he thing police need witnesses, they need to get more information on who hit this actor 68 year old michael toner it happened little more than 24 hours ago at 11th and market streets. police say they found him lying in the street around 1:00 yesterday morning. it was a rainy night. the driver who hit him probably didn't see him step into the street. but police say they shouldn't have taken off. now they need to do the right thing and come forward. the theater community antone err's neighbors in northeast philadelphia are pulling for
him. >> he had a severe leg injury, and he's in critical condition right now. un for the lip we couldn't interview mr. owner to find out what happened. his injuries are consistent what we call auto ped leaving the scene. so we're pretty confident with a vehicle that struck mr. toner unfortunately he can't tell us what happened, and there is no witnesses. >> i wish him the best. i wish him a recovery. my thoughts and prayers are with him. i'm very, very sad. >> keep it mind it was raining. it was nighttime. and who ever hit the man probably didn't see him step into the street. >> if you know you hit somebody why didn't you just stop? pull over. find out what happened. >> toner recently worked with the amaryl a theater company if a one man play at saint mary episcopal church on u pen's campus. he was set to go on tour with walnut st. theater next year. at this point police are also trying to figure out where toner was coming fran and headed when hit. they are also hoping to find surveillance video to try to
help piece all of this together. again, they need your help. they need witnesses. they have no idea with a casino of car struck him at this point. lauren chris? >> all right jenny two sad stories, thank you so much. 4:10 is the time. formal arraignment scheduled for today for two brother accused in the killing of philadelphia police officer and prosecutors say carlton hits ramon williams fired several shots during robbery attempt at north philadelphia game stop in march. officer robert wilson was struck six times he had been in the store to buy a game for his son. >> in montgomery county arraignment also scheduled today foreman accused of shooting had i father while in traffic along the schuylkill expressway. prosecutors say 22 year old cam ear corbin shot his father in the head, during argument in april. the dad did survive the shooting. corbin is charged with aggravated assault, and related offense. >> coming up 4:10, are they closing in? the new leads police are following in the manhunt for two prisoners who escaped in new york. >> texas police officer caught

so. northeast philadelphia, headed to work, no problems at all here along i-95 as you head southbound along cottman avenue. with the closure of the vine street expressway, you connect at spring garden street, work your way past the art museum, down on to the parkway. or the next exit is south street again you make left onto south, and go down to anyone of the number street, again, those closures should be out of here in the next half hour or so. what a mess yesterday on the northeast extension we had upward of anywhere from seven to 10-mile backups throughout the day all lanes are open this morning. that emergency construction completes, and good to go from quakertown all the way down to mid-county. some traffic lights out due to earlier accident along route 47 delsea drive there in vineland right at lake road. otherwise, mass transit looking good chris lauren, back to you. >> thanks so much bob. breaking news this morning man struck by car on roosevelt boulevard. >> of course, police right now, looking for that driver, steve keeley, what do they have to go on?
>> 43:00 now happened at 1:30, three hours ago and they don't have much evidence at all to go on, unfortunately, because despite the severe injuries to this victim you can see here, there is a cross-walk here at front street and the boulevard. unfortunately, this is one of the many intersections that not every intersection has red light camera. seems like they know where the red light cameras r we don't even know in they went through a red light. if the driver just stopped and called 911 and to wouldn't even be their fault. this guy could have been j walking happens frequently there, or dark clothes standing in the middle of the street we don't know. going to the video one thing you notice about the crosswalk, and the one thing they did find in the street, the 25 year old man's boat shoes, easy to slip out of, but he was completely knocked out of these shoes and as we come back to live picture get out of the video, i can show two guys walking, they have the light. even when you have the light here on the boulevard that doesn't guarantee that everybody's going to stop.
you really have to look both ways and sometimes walk real fast across the street, because people here blow through red light often speed, police tell us, we did complete story on the boulevard coincidentally right at the scene here, talking to people who had been previous victims of bad accident. there you can see people running across the street, now, because even when you have the light to start you don't have the light completely. it is 12 lanes. now these guys are in the crosswalk, but they're against the light. that's what happens here. you have 12 lanes to cross and median and it couldn't doesn't give you enough time as a pedestrian usually have to wait two light if you are going to cross with the light standing on median. who knows what happened? that's the problem. no witnesses here except for the aftermath. and they didn't even get great description of the karat all. >> just after 1:30 a.m. 25th district police responded to numerous 911 calls regarding an auto accident on the boulevard at front street. were saying that a male was
crossing the boulevard and was struck by a car and got car left the scene. the vehicle that struck him is being described as a black or dark colored honda or acura that was last seen traveling north on the boulevard from front street on the inner lanes. however we believe that the striking vehicle will have some front end damage. >> and so this victim listed as critical over at einstein good thing he had hospital close by and seems to get some drivers who did stop to help him. but again here is a guy, spinning around, chris here is a guy driving his bike across the boulevard here, against the light. they didn't even look, it seems he was just counting on nobody with headlight on. so this is very dangerous road we told that you countless times. unfortunately, hit and runs are daily occurrence in the city. today we're reporting on two hear from jenny joyce, as well. soap, a trouble spot constant crime, and here we go again. chris lauren? >> here we go again.
>> also for you this morning philadelphia police are looking for a shooter in the city's kensington section shooting happened on the 1900 block of east 1st st. happened about 12:30 victim was taken to the hospital of course. police are not releasing his condition. 4:36. still ahead toddler found locked inside a van for hours in the heat. >> who finally got him out? >> and a woman's life spared, thanks to her service dog. how he saves his owner's life.
