5:02 am
so aloft it could be frozen precipitation. forty-seven in atlantic city. forty-three in dover. again, wind are in the as high as they were over the weekend so that is a good thing. here's the deal. some showers arriving, and it may be a little bit of sunshine here and there but it looks like a rainy afternoon but a early high of 62 degrees. we will see what happens after. that lets just say roller coaster ride, we have been saying ate lot but it will happen all week long. the let's talk about that in the seven day forecast coming up. there is a lot to talk about in traffic, is there not. >> i like roller coaster. the let's go sit up front and lets getting. good morning everybody. tractor trailer pulled over here, maybe to take a cat nap right the here near saint david/villanova interchange. otherwise northeast philadelphia is looking good between cottman avenue and girard avenue. got another bridge opening this second one this morning, two and v for villanova notice i have my jay wright custom

5:04 am
and expect delays to crunch right the here like an hour glass. they will to have slow it the down and only two of the four tracks between philadelphia and wilmington this morning. the airport is looking good. the chris and lauren, back to you. developing this morning ntsb trying to figure out why a back ho was on the track at the same time as oncoming train. >> two workers were killed when amtrak train collided with that equipment, in delaware county. impact caused derailment end ising 30 passengers to the hospital. >> we got on track and there was a big explosion, then a fire, and then window bursted out. some people were cut up. >> investigators have data recorders from that train to help figure out how this all happened. we have an update on the investigation, lets go to steve keeley live at the scene. we understand they will have basically video looking forward in front of them and also from inside of the train, so two different vantage points. >> reporter: yeah, we have learn that was standard in the last accident that we record
5:05 am
may 12th last year where they still don't have a cause by the way. this happened 18 minutes after this train left 30th street station and began to hit top speed through chester, when it collided with that backhoe killing two very experienced amtrak maintenance men with 60 years between them, combined experience. the less than 11 months and less than 20 miles from that may crash in philadelphia that killed eight last year. local congressman bob brady raced out here, made calls too get answers and came a way thinking human error has to be to blame here. >> it is a workweek workday it is in the like they were doing overtime. they were working on something. they were working. you know, he said 40 year employees and 20 year employees, probably in my opinion there must have been some kind of a communication problem because this track was only 20 miles an hour. it is probably a quarter mile or more before it even stopped after it hit the backhoe.
5:06 am
>> reporter: investigators immediately will find out was the train on the correct shot. look at the live picture in the dark you can see several tracks through here and amtrak train was on the right track then the next question, chris and lauren why would maintenance work being done on is what called a live track. >> that is the big question this morning. steve keeley, thanks very much. of course, we are few weeks away from the one year anniversary of the tragic derailment in port richmond. >> steve just mentioned this. you will remember eight people died, 200 were hurt when amtrak train heading from d.c. up to new york careened off the track last may 12th in philadelphia. ntsb says the train was going 108 miles an hour, well above the posted 50 miles an hour speed limit. >> amtrak just finished installing positive train control on the track. ntsb says it could have helped prevent the accident. in the last three years amtrak has reported about 1800 derailments, collisions and other accidents, according to the federal railroad
