6:02 am
at burlington bristol bridge, traffic still heavy, on both sides of the river there, an accident northbound boulevard outer drive at ninth street involving an overturned vehicle, and here's the deal with mass transit this morning. septa's wilmington line inbound to center city expect at least a 30 minute delays. outbound service from center city to wilmington will go express to marcus hook and then make stops into wilmington. amtrak, bottom line they are only using two of the four tracks through that accident scene. expect delays. sort of like an hour glass. right here is crunch between philadelphia and wilmington where they are going to have delays and that will impact the entire northeast corridor for the morning rush hour. mike and alex back over to you. 6:02 on this monday. >> terrifying ride on the tracks when an amtrak train slams in heavy construction equipment. >> but it happened 8:00 o'clock yesterday morning. steve keeley, i keep hearing these conflicting reports.
6:03 am
was the backhoe which the train hit on a live track or adjacent track, do you know. >> reporter: that is the question. i don't know. i don't know if investigators know f they do know they are not saying. look at our lights. look at our live picture. just like you you see on the picture they have red lights and green lights and you can see a train coming. this is the slowest, i have seen any vehicle will if this is indeed a train coming here and it is. we have seen trains race through here without blowing their horn. as you see that train going by that is a septa train that is going fairly fast but no where near as fast as train that cam back here that hit that backhoe a at 120 miles an hour. you can see there are plenty of police, plenty of investigators and repair crews where you see those big heavy construction lights ahead at the crash site. these trains are back on a busy monday morning schedule and racing by here not all blowing their horns. you can see why it is very important to know what trains are on what traction what
6:04 am
time. question here is bob brady the congressman thinks this was definitely a communications failure. the question was it human error in communication or was it a technical equipment malfunction in communication. >> it is workweek, workday. it isn't like they were doing overtime. they were working on something. they were supposed to be working then. they are in the new guys. you a said, 40 year employee and 20 year employee. probably in my pin it must have been some kind of a communication problem because this train on this track was 120 miles an hour. it is probably a quarter mile or more before it even stopped after it hit the backhoe. the train is coming. everybody should know when a train is coming. they are on schedule. it ain't hard to figure out. if i'm working on that track i want to know when the train is coming. it is straight track but it is coming the at 120 miles an hour. >> reporter: as we learned in the may 12th crash that killed eight, less than 20 miles and
6:05 am
less than 11 months ago from this accident, mike, you have to figure that the ntsb already know the answer tour question. we have learn last year they looked at that video right away. we have learn last year they have a forward facing camera going out on all trains and a camera inside looking at the engineers. with that forward facing camera that would tell you where backhoe was right before the impact and during the impact, and it would tell you engineer's reaction to it. we will find out soon likely because ntsb doesn't hold back any answers on what their initial findings are. we will come back live. another train going by a very busy crash site. even know you can see it is a a very busy scene with a lot of people on the track but the tracks are getting very busy too because it is a monday morning verse yesterday sunday morning. >> one hit you saw now septa and amtrak going by. you know there was also another amtrak accident in bensalem yesterday. police say train hit a person near the corn wells heights station around 7:30 yesterday
6:06 am
morning just before the other amtrak crash. victim's leg was severed. police are investigating the circumstances of this accident. train services has resumed in the area. we will still go northbound now out of philadelphia. in the northern illinois suburb one man is dead after an amtrak train hit a car. according to police it happened 3:00 p.m. 60 miles west of chicago. police say gates were down when a man drove his car around the train, traveling from chicago to california, struck the car killing a 28 year-old driver at the scene. this accident is also being investigated. >> bad dad yesterday for amtrak. >> dave kinchen is live at villanova because that is a huge story in our area are we going to be national champs this time tomorrow morning. >> campus is quiet now but it will get louder and louder throughout the day, coming up we will talk to coach wright and fans about the big game tonight.

6:10 am
how many students are not on campus and actually in houston getting ready for this big game on a national title effort tonight. of course, let's show what you happened last time around. one of of villanova's best shots on saturday was this one in the final four, this inbound boom i call it against oklahoma part of the overall package of aggressive inspiring hoops. wildcats lured them, and sooners taking a 95-55 victory a and in team ever won a final four game by 44 points before. it sets nova up nicely for north carolina tonight. coach jay wright talked about why he feels this team is at its best having younger guys that continue 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.
6:11 am
i think that chemistry has helped us. >> that chemistry is hoping for a party saturday night. always a good night for a party y not converge on the center of campus to celebrate that victory and party like 1985. that is last time villanova won a national title and we will talk to some student here as they come on campus here and get their thoughts throughout the morning but what an exciting, exciting day. >> it sure is, man. it is fun to be routeing for the wildcats. >> yes, philly sports need this. we need a championship. opening day for phillies, the team plays, their first regular season game, cincinnati, 4:10 this afternoon, jeremy hellicsson will be pitching for the phillies. the get to know the new team. the team starts saturday with the six-five win over phillies future team. they play their first home opener a week from today against padres that is april the 11th.

6:34 am
working then. yeah, they are not new guys. as you said, 40 year employee and 20 year employee. probably in my pin it must have been some kind of a communication problem because you this train on this track was 120 miles an hour. the it is probably maybe quarter mile or more before it needed to stop after it hit a backhoe. >> reporter: how did they get the answer? well, several ways, they have data recorders to tell you the time, place, track, speed, everything about the the train and a then video cameras both one looking out, forward from the train, which will show you the backhoe and will show you impact and will also show you inside camera and engineer's reaction to seeing something on the track. mike and alex, look at this, right below those traffic lights you you can see workmen on another piece of yellow construction amtrak equipment that went by real slow but that is sitting on the track as well and you just saw that other train speed by and you can tell difference between
