another deadly train derailment in our area, what went wrong on a local train track that left two men dead. the train is coming. i mean everybody should know when there is a a train coming, they are on schedule it ain't hard to figure out. >> investigators working through the scene, and what they have pulled from the wreckage. game night villanova a fans are getting ready for ncaa championship game tonight, what they are saying and how they are preparing for the biggest stage in all of college basketball, perhaps biggest stage in all of sports, arguablably, final four, lauren dawn johnson. >> it is monday april 4th, 2016. speaking of hoops that game saturday night was like a blow out. >> unbelievable. we were up by nearly 50 points at one point in the game.
>> i was at a watch party a and we stopped watching. >> nothing to watch, another steel, another three. >> let's go to sue serio. we're all excited. >> i think everybody is a villanova fan today, more of the fan of villanova then of the weather that you see on ultimate doppler radar. the what is going on here. yes, is there snow to the north of us and frozen precipitation out to the west of us but we don't really see much, except a few flurries up in the poconos mountains maybe a tiny bit of freezing rain in berks county. we're expecting rain here in philadelphia. but by the time we get to the precipitation it should just be rain. we are above freezing in the city with 42 degrees, easterly wind at 8 miles an hour. 6:40 your sunrise time. temperatures are cold this morning. you know how cold and windy it was yesterday. could not help but hear that wind. 27 degrees in mount pocono right now. thirty-nine in trenton. forty-two as we said here in
the city. forty in wilmington. forty-six in wildwood. wind although they are calmer, then they were over the weekend they are still out there at 8 miles an hour here, 14 miles an hour in mount pocono, 9 miles an hour southeasterly wind, coming in. so we will warm up into the 60's today, this is the roller coaster ride we were telling but last week. now we're going up the hill and back down by tomorrow. once this cold front comes through and brings this rain, and so anytime after lunchtime we expect that rain to begin. we will time it the out in the fox future cast, sunset time 7:29. we will get in the 60's today but don't get used to that because it will get cold again. we will tell you how cold in a few minutes. ready for that roller coaster ride again, you again are using your weather items over there all in one day. good morning, everybody. back at it, how fast does that weekend fly by. here's a live look at the blue route 476, watch for some debris that is still out there
along the shoulders of the roadway. i pasted down branches along that schuylkill expressway on the the way in this morning but roads are quiet, no problems here on the 42 freeway looking good as you work your way in towards philadelphia. again our top story also involved the mass transit system this morning. here's the latest from septa there are only two track as veilable past the accident scene from yesterday just south of the commodore barry bridge to give you a an idea of exactly where this train accident happened. instead of four tracks, there were only two. so the wilmington newark line on septa's system, inbound, expect 30 minute delays. outbound trains are going to leave center city and go express all the way down from marcus hook. they will bypass, the accident scene and not start until marcus hook on down. that will get the trains back into delaware so they can flip around and continue to bring folks, into philadelphia a, which is where we see the most
volume during the morning rush hour. so expect delays there on the wilmington line. amtrak's northeast corridor, same deal, only two tracks, one south, one north instead of the normal four, so expect delays on the squeeze here between philadelphia, and wilmington. although you probably won't see mass delays from new york to washing top but that squeeze just like an hour glass there is going to happen between philadelphia and wilmington on amtrak's northeast corridor. otherwise this morning, we're in good shape no problems as i showed you on the blue route, schuylkill expressway looking good, from conshohocken all the way into downtown. no problems or delays. they are still working near passyunk avenue, until about 5:00 or 5:30 or so. out of northeast philadelphia a we're looking good between a contacted my down through bridge street and then down again through girard. old penndot shuffle where the work zone took up most of the weekend. now in warrington, county line road remains closed on the
bridge over little neshaminy creek so that detours back into effect and with today, everybody is back to school. spring break is over, so come on, buses will join us, in every school district. we had hit and misses over last couple weeks but today everyone is back to school, and whenever that happens, we usually have that first grid lock, on that first monday for everybody going back. all of the bridges are fine, and no problems, currently at the airport. the chris and lauren, back over to you. >> there was a lot of smoke. everybody was late. >> smoke started to come in the train. it was scary. >> reporter: deadly train crash killing two long time amtrak workers and hurting dozens more. federal and local investigators worked throughout the night to figure out how this all happen. why exactly was that backhoe on the track, at the same time as a moving train? >> this morning we have the latest from the 30th street station, with how this may affect commuters this morning. steve keeley has the latest on the investigation.
we will begin this morning with steve live at the scene of the derailment. steve, have you heard why this happened yesterday. >> reporter: well, they have got data a recorders and they have video recorded from two cameras, the one pointing out showing the impact, and the camera that is inside, showing the engineers both before and during their windshields being smashed and front of their engine car derailing. so with all that it comes down to the question, human error or equipment computer malfunction. weekend mornings are prime track maintenance time when there are far less commuter runs on the track so with the train going 100, 120 miles through this stretch here just outside philadelphia, which was it the supposed to be on that particular track at that specific time? very experienced maintenance workers killed or that train. >> we have recovered the event data recorder, the forward facing video and inward facing
video from the location mote turf send to our laboratory in washington d.c. >> there was a lot of smoke and everybody was very scared. >> smack started to come in the train. it was scary. >> we got off track i guess and then just a bunch of dust. the dust every where. >> reporter: so from yesterday's video to our live picture here, right now, just after 4:00 in the morning you can see lots of construction lights, so that means lots of work still going on 20 hours after this crash happened. two amtrak workers culled supervisor and backhoe operator had 40 years and 20 years experience, as their death and this derailment are less than one year and less than 20 miles from last may amtrak accident in philadelphia a that killed eight. >> sixty years combined experience and so many people scratched their heads asking how could this possibly have happened. all right steve, thank you. this this wasn't the only deadly amtrak train crash this weekend one man is dead after a train struck a vehicle in
northern illinois. >> officials say accident happened around 3:00 yesterday afternoon. police say gates were down and man drove his car around them. train was traveling from union station in chicago to chicago. >> and another amtrak accident in bensalem last night, police say train hit a person near cornwells heights station around 7:30. victim's leg was partially suffered. police investigating the circumstances of that accident. train services have resume in that area. of course, we are a few weeks away from the anniversary of that tragic derailment in port richmond, eight people died, 200 hurt when amtrak train headed from d.c. to new york careened off the track last may 12th. ntsb says the train was going 108 miles an hour, well above the posted 50 miles an hour speed limit, amtrak just finish installed positive train control on tracks, the ntsb says could have helped prevent that accident. over the last three years amtrak has reported about 1800 derailments, collisions and other accidents according to
the federal railroad administration. as this story develops we continue to stay on top of it. stick with fox 29 both on air and on line at fox 29.com or down load our fox 29 news app at itunes or google play. let's lighten mood a little bit. the villanova wildcats just one win away from the national championship. >> that team, laser focused on defeating number one seed, north carolina. >> laser focused. >> yes. >> laser folk he used. >> they have to beat north carolina tonight in houston. >> you're too much. dave kinchen, he raced out the door for fun story of the morning and all of the excitement. it is quiet there on campus now but man, later tonight all eyes are on houston man. >> reporter: and that mood will change on campus by the time night falls once again. how about this extra credit for anyone who can guess how many villanova students are not here or on campus but in houston for the national title
game tonight. extra credit that probably don't want to get the because i don't have those numbers but maybe university does. one of the villanova's best shots saturday in the final four in this inbound a begins oak, part of the package of aggressive, inspired hooping and one of the many ways wildcats, lowered that boom on the sooners, taking a 95-51 victory over oklahoma. no team has ever won a final four game by 44 points before and it sent nova up nicely for north carolina tonight. coach jay wright talked about why he feels this team feels he is playing at his best. >> everything younger guys that are continuing to get better, and still hungry to learn. we have two seniors that are kind of putting up with me. i have heard this for four years. young guys are still listening and getting better. there is a hung inner this team to continue to grow. i think that chemistry has
really helped us. >> it also makes for a great party on at day night. the always a good night for party anyway. why not converge in the center of the campus to celebrate the big victory and party like 1985. of course, students did just had that in villanova and on campus and that 1985 was last time nova won a national championship. so, they would love to see that happen again. tip off is at the precise time of 9:19. >> oh, so late. >> i know, it is always late. >> the whole country is watching, so california would be after dinner time, right. >> true, true. all right. caught on camera. >> too late for us to watch. we kind of to don't we. >> this is huge. >> are you staying up. >> i don't know. scary moments for fans at a flyers game as something happened to the escalate or they were riding on. what officials were saying

showers around and also by 11:00 we will zoom up to the 60's today. it does look like we will get in the lower 60's, and we will see some rain rolling through. for us it should only be rain but then by the time we will get in the early hours of tomorrow we will see temperatures in the 20's. we have a freeze warning in effect, late tonight, into tomorrow morning with temperatures in the lower 20's, and wind chills in the teens at this time tomorrow morning. hopefully you didn't take that winter coat to the cleaners because you will still need it. we have 41 degrees in philadelphia. thirty-six in lancaster. twenty-seven in mount pocono. cold morning up there. only 39 degrees in trenton. wind are coming out of the west or the the south east, east or south east i should say and they are in the as extreme as they were over the weekend. we are up to 60 degrees. talk about that roller coaster ride 80 degrees on friday. sixty-five on early high on saturday, and only 47 degrees with all that wind, yesterday.

wind yesterday. we do have a cold time ahead but today we will get to a high of 62 degrees. we were only in the 40's yesterday and it felt coal with the wind so we are off to a cold are start. sun to showers and rainy after afternoon possible with sunset at 7:29. so we will keep an eye on that situation and on radar, show you on the future cast and seven day forecast what a roller coaster ride we're about to take as we get into the first full week of april. bob kelly, good morning. >> hey sue, good morning. 4:32 on this monday morning, back to work, back to school, spring break, is over. pack your book bag come on we are all going back to the to the schoolhouse and that is good news but bad news for commuters today because all of those school buses will eventually join the party for morning rush hour. right now we're in good shape here on the vine street expressway. no problems coming in or out of philadelphia. tacony palmyra bridge in the
middle of the opening right now. traffic stopped on both side of the river, and in medford, route 70. right at the main street that jughandle is closed from a down pole from yesterday. they are still working on 422 between trooper and 202 until about five or 5:30 or so. here's the latest from mass transit as a result of yesterday's, amtrak, crash, there are only two of the normal will four track as railable past that crash scene which is actually located just south of the commodore barry bridge. so for the septa a, wilmington commuters, inbound, from delaware into philadelphia, expect 30 minute delays this morning. outbound, leaving center city, trains will go express to marcus hook passing the accident scene, and then make all stops south of the marcus hook before they flip around, most volume during the morning rush hour leaving wilmington and comes into philadelphia. the as far as amtrak same deal
only two of the four tracks are opened this morning, so expect delays sort of like an hour glass that squeeze right here between philadelphia and wilmington will will occur with only those two tracks. we are not going to go see huge delays between new york and washington but again they all to have go through this that hour glass from four, down to two, expect delays, especially during this morning's rush hour. no problems on i-95 or schuylkill and we're in good shape at the airport. chris and lauren back to you. we are continuing to follow that deadly story. another deadly train derailment in our area two amtrak workers killed when a train heading from new york city toy georgia hit construction equipment. now many questions as ntsb investigates what led up to this deadly accident. >> the focus at this point the backhoe and why it was right there on the track. steve keeley is live a at the scene, of the derailment with the very latest, steve, good morning. >> reporter: it happened just before 8:00 yesterday morning and now 4:30 in the morning today you can still see the
lights, police, investigators and train itself still on the track is here in the dark. around the clock investigation going on. the answer as to why this happened comes down to whether it was human error or equipment malfunction. signal on the tracks here or computer glitch at dispatch or somewhere else. amtrak workers killed on and close to the the backhoe were very experienced. one with 40 years, the other with 20 years. weekend mornings are prime track maintenance times when far fewer commuter runs are scheduled on these tracks. but still this was a regularly scheduled train going an estimated 100, 120 miles an hour as they normally do through this stretch and with so many tracks here, so close to each other, by the time either the engineers knew that backhoe was on their track or if the workers realized there was no time for that train to stop and for those workers maybe to dive out of the way even if they ever saw this train coming.
>> we have recovered the event data recorder, the forward facing video, and the inward facing video from the locomotive to send to our laboratory in washington d.c. >> when it hit the train and i heard people screaming, and yeah, the window opened. >> reporter: owe with both data recorders to tell investigators how fast, what track and what time that train was supposed to be on and video cameras as you heard there pointing both forward, down the track at that backhoe as it crashed into it and inside and engineering reaction before and during the crash those looking for the cause, chris and lauren may not to have look very hard for the answer. >> that is right, it is right there. >> steve, thank you. as this developing story continues to unfold stick with fox 29 both on air and on line for very latest updates. head to fox 29 to the come and down load our app at itunes or google play store. we're witching gears, let's talk basketball villanova wildcats one win

coaches always talk about keeping their teams focused on the next game. they repeat that over and over but that is hard to do says nova coach jay wright. >> it is challenge, is there much more to this tournament then just a great teams you play against. you have to deal with, you know, all of the media and other responsibilities, and you handle it in a way that doesn't affect your play. we have been doing a good job so far but this is big abe getting to monday night and still keeping our composure and our focus. >> of course, saturday night was big night the for our party tonight night to but to celebrate and they are partying like 1985. that is what t-shirts say because nova took home the nast title. so maybe we will be partying like it is 1985 tonight. hopefully. >> back to you. >> dave kinchen thank you. from basketball to soccer abby wamback in trouble with the law. what police say she did right in front of the sergeant that landed her in handcuffs.
