oxford is at 38. and to the southeast we go, where temperatures are into the mid to low 40's, so not exactly a cold morning, just patchy fog morning, and it might take little longer to burn off. we put it right at a seven this morning. because along with the fog, which will be clearing out, we will get showers, storms developing, and they're out there in western pennsylvania right now. but with the cold air in place, and things heating up little bit, these pop-up showers and storms develop by about 2:00, strongest north and west, moving through the philadelphia area by about 3:00, 4:00. so out this afternoon, maybe brief downpour, gusty wind, and maybe even some hail, as these storms move through there, all cleared out by this evening. 60s, so not a bad day, not quite as warm, but still pretty comfortable with sunshine and just a few clouds. more green, bob kelly. >> got you covered. good morning, everybody, 5:01, we got the good day philadelphia saint patrick's day show later on 7:00 to 10:00. join us liver at maggie o'neil's irish pub in drexel hill, myself, jenn fred, brink

week that our viewers will remember. so bad when this infinity hit this house that they couldn't pull the driver out of it. in fact, they had to take the entire wreckage, what was left that far car, nobody at the scene could even tell it was an infinity, they had to take that melt on wreckage to the morgue for the medical examiner to get to the remains of the driver. meantime, what we've also learned is that surveillance video shows that it was a philadelphia housing authority police car right behind that infinity leading up to the crash scene on cecil b. moore avenue and gps in that police car shows it going quote at a high rate of speed and puts it right at that crash scene, right at that time. now lauren the reason for philadelphia police taking out of that chase was they pulled an infinity over for a traffic violation. they did not pursue the infinity, and there is a policy to not pursue any cars
for anything less than a violent crime. and the reason for that is high speed chases always seem to end badly. a lot of times they end up in horrific crashes like this, with people dying, like in this case. this case could have been so much worse with many more people than the driver being killed, had it not happened overnight when it did. here's a witness that you will remember from our show last week. >> they were chasing him, the police, chasing him, don't know why. it is a shame, though. i would have never ran from police officer, even if they were changes, no matter what the situation may have been. and to get your own life taken like that, you know, it is craze. >> i the impact was so severe, the trunk of the car was in the middle of the block over here, like it is right there. i seen the guy. he was inside, i think, by the impact, i think he was already dead or unconscious, it was in flames. it was bad. this is the worse i ever seen. i tried, but i couldn't get the door open. i didn't even try, i couldn't
even get to the door actually because the flames, you know, coming out. >> well the only thing recognizeable at that scene by the police and witnesses was a whole lot of mcdonald's debris. a lot of mcdonald's gift cards, mcdonald's cups. so the thought was maybe the guy took off because he just held up or broke into a mcdonald's. well, we learned why there was so much mcdonald's debris at the crash scene in that infinity. the person who was killed, the driver, 39 year old john dawkins is part of a family that owns nine mcdonald's franchises. that explains for the mcdonald's merchandise all over the street. but, lauren, what it doesn't explain is why he would take off from a minor traffic stop in the first place. we just don't have that answer and may never have it since he's now gone. >> that's the tough part. steve keeley, thanks so much. >> lawmakers one step closer to making pennsylvania the next state to legalize medical marijuana. patients who suffer from

the reason for that policy obvious: car chases can kill, high speed, meaning, a higher chance of chases ending badly. while surveillance video now shows a pha police car going along cecil b. moore, leading up to the crash, and we learned that the gps in that police car shows it going at, quote, high rate of speed, moments before the infinity hit a house and exploded. >> police were chasing them, and he hit the pole over there, the tree first, he lost control, and then he ran up to all the 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 it was -- the car was in flames. i would have never ran from a police officer even if they are chasing no matter what the situation may have been. and then to get your own life taken like, that you know, it is crazy. >> reporter: well the driver killed has now been identified
as john dawkins, 39 years old, his family owns nine mcdonald's restaurants, and that explains why we saw all of that mcdonald's debris around the crash scene include ago lot of mcdonald's gift cards which had some witnesses wondering whether police chased this guy because he either just held up a mcdonald's or just broke into a mcdonald's, but the reason that he was originally pulled over was just for a simple traffic violation. so that explains the mcdonald's merchandise, not explaining why he took off and why exactly he was pulled over, what traffic violation, police did not say. one last thing, lauren, the question we had for the pha police chief that he would not answer, did he pull one or more of his pha police officers off regular street duty while internal affairs investigation, he says, he really can't say anything it because it is under investigation right now. >> so so many answers, and still, so many questions. all right, steve keeley. thanks so much. >> philadelphia school
