let's roll at the toll plaza, showing video here in a second. teleplays is open this morning, you can see that crash actually occurred in one of the actual travel lanes there of the toll plaza itself wow look what's left there, the accident and then of course the fire, now, that lane is still closed, on the plaza, but the far right cash lanes are open, and the e-zpass lanes come in the opposite way are open this morning, as well. so that's good news, going back to the maps this morning, on a thursday, as you are getting ready to step out of the front door, no major problems on 95, no major problems here, at philadelphia international airport however the fog this morning could lead to some early flight delays. keep that in mind if you are headed down toward the airport. service was suspended all day yesterday on the cynwyd line. septa says that they are back to normal for the morning rush
hour. lauren, back over to you. >> to breaking news from over night, nan critical condition this morning, after being shot in the head and then crashing his car into several parked cars. this happened in the holmesburg section of philadelphia, it was around 10:00 last night. police found the victim sitting inside the car on meridian street. he is currently in critical condition at aria-torresdale hospital and is expected to survive as for the shooter. police tell fox 29 a 17 year old has been taken into custody. >> this morning we know more about what may have happened moments before last week's deadly crash in north philadelphia. police have launched a dual investigation to determine the cause. steve keeley live in center city at police headquarters with more details on this. hi, steve. >> yep, the dual investigation is philadelphia police accident investigators now joined by the internal affairs investigators for the philadelphia housing authority, police department. and the reason they are looking into this, to see if one of their officers was doing what he shouldn't be.
and that is a high speed chase over something trivial. just a traffic stop. here is the scene of the crash, remember this was our lead story last week, and remember, police on the scene couldn't even tell that this was an infinity at that time because the crash was so horrific on cecil b. moore. the only thing identifiable was a whole lot of mcdonald's items in there, not like bought in a drive-thru, but like if you had a mcdonald's store, and all of the cups, napkins, bags, and all of that kind of stuff, in the trunk of the car. well, it turns out, philadelphia police had stopped that car for a traffic violation on cecil b. moore. the driver for some still unknown reason took off. and the reason we don't know is that driver was killed. but it could have been so much worse. that's why there is a policy with all police departments in philadelphia, not to chase anybody at 80, 70, even 60 miles an hour in a
residential area, because people can get killed in a high speed chase if somebody is blowing through red lights, going up on sidewalks, over something trivial, not violent crime. >> the police officer chased them. and he hit the pole over there, tree first, he lost control, and then he ran up to all of those polls there, hit the wall. then all the sudden the cop burst in flames, so i ran downstairs, i tried to assist and i couldn't get close to get the door open because the car was in flames. >> i never would have ran from a police officer, no matter what the situation may have been. and then to get your own life taken like that, it is crazy. >> and initially because people saw so many mcdonald's gift cards sprawled all over out at the crime scene, somebody thought there was ahold up. it turns out the person who owned this car, 39 year old john dawkins is in a family that owns nine mcdonald's franchises which explains all of the mcdonald's merchandise.
now, what we've learned from investigative sources cents is that surveillance video shows it was a philadelphia housing authority patrol car in that area, and that car's gps shows it going at a high rate of speed in the area leading up to the crash scene on cecil b. moore. lauren, the questions no one would answer including the head of the philadelphia housing authority police is, is an officer or more than one now off the streets, as this investigation continues for administrative leave. that, he said, he could not talk about, because of this internal investigation. >> all right, we'll have to wait and see what happens there. steve keeley, thank you so much. >> lawmakers one step closer to making pennsylvania the next state to legalize medical marijuana. patients who suffer from chronic conditions say this drug could be life changing. jennifer joyce live at city hall with more on this decision. hi, jenny. >> reporter: good morning, lauren, yes, the house vote in the favor of this medical marijuana bill, 149 to 43, the bill passed through the house

>> reporter: our viewers no doubt remember this crash. this was the one dave kinchen was on last week. at the scene at cecil b. moore avenue where no one could even tell what kind of car it was. because this crash was so bad, the philadelphia housing authority police chief won't say whether any of his officers have since now been taken off regular street patrol duty, now that we've learned that that the pha internal affairs detectives have joined philly police investigators, into the crash, so who are i have i can, high speed fiery crash, here on cecil b. moore avenue, so bad the wreckage had to be taken itself to the morgue to remove
the drivers remains. surveillance video shows a pha police car after philly city police did not chase the car chasing the car up cecil b. moore avenue. it was an infinity that philly police had pulled over for a traffic stop. also, pha tells us that the gps in that patrol car we learned puts that karat a high rate of speed along cecil b. moore right up leading to the crash scene and the crash at 2:00 in the morning, before crashing and killing the driver, but no one else, fortunately, maybe because it was so early overnight. >> the police officer chased him. he hit the pole over there, the tree first, he lost control, and then he ran up to all of those polls there, hit the wall. then all the sudden the cop burst in flames. so i ran downstairs, i tried to assist and i couldn't get close to get the door open because the car was in flames.

conditions specially on an inner city street even if it is overnight. because if cars are blowing through red light or going up on sidewalks like this was the case, this could have been so much worse, and so many more people other than the driver could have been killed in this crash, even officers themselves lives are in danger on these high speed chases. >> you're absolutely right about that. steve keeley, thank you so much. 4:41 this morning, things on capitol hill heating up now that president obama has announced his pick for the supreme court. the reason republicans are giving for not want to go confirm the president's pick. reason to buy another rounds. how beer could soon help fight diseases like cancer.
