5:02 am
detoured off 95 southbound, because of this massive shut-down, was being detoured to the vine street expressway westbound. the problem with that is the construction they do on the overnight, all of that traffic was being forced off at broad street. sadly chris you said at least it is not raining out, it is raining now, so that's going to complicate things. fortunately, not raining as heavy as it did around 3:00 in the morning, that likely played a part in this multiple vehicle crash, that may be two simultaneous crashes. greg gill roy, our photographer, who has been bussing his butt since we started our shift, will walk with me all the way over here now. what we will do this wasn't the firetruck involved. these are fire fight that's react today this. we've got troopers over here trying to keep everybody safe and shut everything down, but we will walk and poke around, to the left of the jackknife tractor-trailer. that's where you will see this second accident scene. and further up, you see that tow truck i talked about, we will go beast here, go around, peak around this tractor-trailer, and look at
5:03 am
the front of t so we will make hard rite here. there is one accident scene, greg, go up here, go around the tractor-trailer. and you will see how bad that tractor-trailer mangled in the front. so they have a big deal trying to get this out. now, why are firefighters, look at that, that's the fuel tank, and they have water truck here in case. see debris to the left f we pull to the left of the curb, to the left, right here, and then you see some of the debris from the accident, then we come over here, where that ambulance is not blocking us, see tow trucks, firetrucks, and more vehicles up there, and that's firetruck with yellow flashing light across. that looks like one of the long ladder trucks. so why would firetrucks pool 95? reacting from previous accident from hydroplaning, that's the problem. you have such heavy rainout here, sue serio, that the weather likely played a part in all of this. and we've got off and on drizzle here at the scene, that always complicates things, but i guess because
5:04 am
both happened at an overpass, guys reacting and dealing with this are protected from the rain at least. >> right, for the workers trying desperately to get this situation under control. so we can get traffic moving again. but, still, very difficult to tell how soon that will be. here is another view from one of our traffic cameras, of the big mess, of two separate accident, that have become one, basically, in south philadelphia. now, let's go to i believe the map of the situation, and as we told you earlier, steve told you earlier, the vine street expressway is now open again, so you can get off at the vine. see this area of red? that's where the back-up, and it is lenthening, as we get later on in the morning, folks get on the road, they maybe haven't heard before they hit i95 that you should avoid this area. so, basically, it is happening between market street and washington avenue, as you head toward south philadelphia, southbound i-95, avoid it, because it is still blocked, and will be for the foreseeable future. police are pushing everybody
5:05 am
on to the vine, when they get close to that situation, and the construction around the betsy ross bridge has been pick up, as well. one other accident to tell but, this one just happened in new jersey, it is 295 northbound, near route 541, this is by willingboro, new jersey, and we still have the one out there in chelten help, sandy hill, so watch out for that one, as well. we've got wet roadways out there this morning, rain continuing on and offer as we've been telling you, you can see if you are on ultimate doppler radar, tiny bit of rain around philadelphia, bigger area moving into lancaster county, and berks county, headed toward us. there is some heavier rain down in delaware, as well. we zoom out little bit more, show you the rain that's at the jersey shore, on and off throughout the rest of the morning, have the umbrella with you. if you can find it, it's been a while since we've had substantial rain. 74 degrees, pretty humid out there still. 6:29 your sunrise time.
5:06 am

5:12 am
and how do we get out of here? tropical storm developing in the gulf of mexico. could produce near hurricane force winds. more on the triple weather threat set to hit part of the golf coast, southeast and hawaii.
5:13 am
5:14 am
>> we have i95 southbound shutdown completely here in philadelphia, the shutdown,
5:15 am
the accident, i guess, location, between market street and washington avenue, and this is a situation that it looks like it will be out there for a while. because, as you just saw, the tractor-trailer is perpendicular to the roadway, kind of wedged in, there and who knows how long it will take to get out of there. but, basically, all lines are block, the two separate accident, as you heard steve tell us a little bit earlier, one involving that jackknife tractor-trailer, so police are pushing all traffic off southbound i-95, north of this accident scene, on to the vine street expressway. we've cleared up construction on the vine, and if you are coming eastbound, on the vine, say, from the schuylkill, then can you not get onto i95 southbound, because that accident, that exit, is closed, as well. so they're trying to clear as much around the scene as possible while they work on clearing up all of the vehicles from the accident. another one to tell you about,
5:16 am
on the new jersey turnpike, this accident happened northbound, approaching the pennsylvania turnpike, so that has the right lane block, as well. that's another picture of our accident scene on i95 southbound, and, that's going to continue to be our lead story all morning, such a major roadway, right through philadelphia, impacted, early this morning, but probably lingering into the rush hour. rain might have been a factor, too early to tell on that, but we do have more rain moving through the area. so we zoom in, show you where. to the north of us, own a and county around jackson, new jersey, around toms river seeing downpours, around river view, delaware, just south of dover, we're seeing some heavy rain this morning, some around middletown, new castle county, and more rain moving into lancaster, berks counties headed toward chester, montgomery count ills. future cast shows more rain showing up through about 8:00, 9:00 maybe even 10:00 this morning, a lot of cloud cover, midday, few peaks of sunshine here and there, and more pop up showers and thunderstorms,
5:17 am
and any time after 2:00 this afternoon, so grab the umbrella if you can finds it, and keep it with you for the rest of the day. as far as the tropics are concerned, this storm now it is a tropical storm, official, hermine, in the gulf of mexico, expected to strengthen to a hurricane, and move up the east coast, and the track of this storm has changed dramatically, since we were together yesterday, and we thought it wasn't going to really give us that much of an impact on our weather over the holiday weekend, now looks like it is, now, we have to see what happens after it moves, say, back out into the atlantic ocean, but there is a pretty good chance not only of rip current ramifications, but also, of some rain for all of us, on sunday, so the rip countries being, mod cat to hi, rain arriving saturday night into sunday, at the jersey shore, greater chance of them getting rain, than we will here in the city. but any effect we get from hermine will be on sunday, nice start to the weekend though, sunny skies on friday, and some clouds on saturday, but it should stay dry
5:18 am
throughout the day. again, this is an early forecast, because it is a tropical system, chris, lauren, could change again. so make sure to stay tuned. >> yes, tropical storm hermine is causing problems up and down the east costes sue just showed us from the map. heavy rain, right, and should change people's plans for labor day. this is the worse possible timing, lauren. >> meantime, people in florida bracing for hermine as it heads toward that state. fox news correspondent jacky inch and owes has more. >> reporter: it is like up to here. yes, actually, they're coming up to me, and underwater, actually to up here in water. >> reporter: flooding forcing many from their homes in florida there as tropical storm hermine barrels toward the sunshine state. the system could become a hurricane before making landfall. but it is already having an impact with heavy rain, and strong winds. >> they got it block off. so i'm just their just get some closure, just right over by the water mark so it never goes down. >> some kids using the flooding as an opportunity to
5:19 am
have little fun. but neighbors aren't too happy about it. >> when it gets more serious i hope they slow down, because it will make waves and come up in the house. >> florida governor rick scott says it has been a while since the state has seen a hurricane, and warning people to be prepared. >> potential for tornados, if you look where this is going, this part of the state could get the most, could get the brunt of the rain because it is on the east side of the sent of the storm. >> meantime, two storms are moving toward hawaii. >> we've been working with the governor, and fema, to make sure hawaii has everything it needs to keep folks safe. >> national weather service downgraded mad line from hurricane to tropical storm. that isn't stopping folks from the big islands from being prepared. >> came home early so i can take care of my dogs and animals and my kids. >> hurricane left about thousand miles from the hawaiian islands, expecting to be downgraded, as well. in new york, fox news.
5:20 am
>> one local community doing all they can to keep the tradition of allowing drivers to park along the median on south broad street. >> so during the dnc they did not allow that. they don't want that to become a permanent change. the group taking on south philadelphia streets back, set up along broad and shunk, trying to get signatures from people in the neighborhood to support keeping the median parking. one organizer says when they heard another group wanted the city to crackdown, they new they had to save the tradition, but not everyone agrees. >> if they want to end center median parking, technically it is illegal, but the city, for over 70 years, has threat go on. >> really not safe. it blocks vision. there has been few incident around here. but it is a liability around here because of the street. >> i was out there live talking with someone trying to get rid of the tradition. and the big concern he had was that not only the safety
5:21 am
issue, but lauren, also, if you have expired tags and that kind of thing, the ppa won't enforce it if you are park on the median. like double illegal. >> the mayor's offers says before any changes are made they plan to have discussion with the people who actually live there. >> all right, next, what a world war ii vet is doing to prove he is truely young at heart. >> but first, your winning lottery numbers.
5:22 am
for senate, katie mcginty or pat toomey? mcginty supports clean energy jobs. pat toomey voted to protect tax breaks for oil companies. mcginty is pro-choice. toomey wants to overturn roe v. wade and criminalize abortion. mcginty will consistently stand up to the gun lobby. toomey's against an assault weapons ban and gets an a rating from the nra. this year, pennsylvanians have a clear choice. senate majority pac is responsible for the content of this advertising.

5:28 am
but boy, it could have been worse if they got involved in this. so thanking their stars even then the firs ones to come across the stone and being stuck in the longest so far. more when we see you next. (vo) we went to hollywood to ask
5:29 am
if america's favorites - burgers, tacos and chili could taste just as great made with turkey. thousands stepped into the jennie-o tasting booth to find out. with just one bite, they knew. now it's your turn to make the switch.
5:30 am
did you know people can save over $500 when they switch to progressive? did you brush your hair today? yes, mom. why? hmm. no reason.
5:31 am
>> two hours and counting of this mess i95 southbound, tractor-trailer versus firetruck in south philadelphia. several taken to the hospital. live report minute away. >> on your radar, storms brewing in the tropics. man, that could mean mess of holiday weekend. sue has your full weather forecast straight ahead. >> another major event coming our way, talking about the nfl draft. what next year's event could mean for is the city of brotherly love. >> set a -- septa set to release information about is repairs, when passengers can expect a faster train commute. >> good day, it is the first day of september, 2016. >> means the first inning of the month, especially if you're on i95, southbound, through the city. let's go to steve keeley now with the very latest for us, steve, good morning. everybody is just waking up, what's going on on 95. it is so hard to explain to people, because you have two crash scenes, and you've got the one, that you see the most, emergency vehicles around, what is involved, a firetruck, and who knows what else right now.
5:32 am
but, that's where the five people, that needed to be hospitalized were taken away, fan there was a firetruck here, chances are there was previous accident to that. what happened for you people just waking up, at 3:00 this morning, torrential downpour coming down, cats, and dogs, is as the expression is, and whenever that happens on 95, we have the hydroplaning, especially when you have these hi, 3-foot high concrete walls, that make 95 a swimming pool, same with the schuylkill expressway. now, greg will shimmy to the right around this water truck that's here, to clean up the road surface once it is all done. and there is the other accident scene, closest to us, a jackknife tractor-trailer. was this involved in the accident further up? who knows. or was this guy a secondary accident trying to stop and swerve? probably little little of both, smashed up tractor-trailer and the tractor part under the trailer look you notice there is gas tanks there, that's why the fire department was keeping very close eye on any potential fuel leak out of there, because, that's where
5:33 am
the damage s's that thing is wedged real good against the wall that will be tough job for tow trucks, that gives you a sense how far away we are from any potential re-opening of 95, southbound. now, look, we turn around here. traffic is backed up for miles on 95, when we first arrived already way past the ben franklin bridge, and the callowhill exit. and if people could get to the right, they were being detoured to the vine street expressway, which thankfully reopened as it does through the construction zone, where everybody was being forced off earlier at broad street. so, at least, it is smooth sailing, smoother sailing down the vine street expressway westbound for all of the traffic now being detoured, and they can find their way back to 995 down the schuylkill expressway. but these people around here that we see sitting on the median to the right, and then greg will spin around, 108 degrees, where we have seen people asleep in their vehicles, outside their vehicles, and in the headlights of the tractor-trailer, you can see, a little drizzle falling, sue serio, and you mention, going
5:34 am
to rain off and on. so the rain likely for sure played a part in causing this accident. and now, at least, cooling things off for people who have been stuck in this heat, humidity, and wondering how long it will be before they can go. the first guy we talked to over here, he's on his way to washington dc. thought i'll get up early and beat the traffic. look at him sitting in his suv. waiting with another two hour drive once he finally can get through here. >> happened so early, i'm sure everybody has a story about what they were doing on i95 at that hour. but all kind of stuck right now. we will take another look at this accident scene. from one of our traffic cameras, this morning, and it is kind of merky here, once it is a little lighter out, we will be able to get better view of what's going on. but, in essence, i95 is just blocked, right there, in south philadelphia. annual very to avoid it at all costs, just tuning in, maybe just woke up at 5:30, that's what's happening. you can see from this map that
5:35 am
we already have a back up, little further to the north of that, on southbound i95. so avoid that at all costs. we have police of course pushing g everybody on to the vine street expressway, who is on i95 southbound, coming from the north, say, bucks county, or even from cottman avenue, so that's going to end up backing up the vine, as you can see, things are starting to get a little slow onto the westbound vine st. expressway. another accident to tell you about this morning. happened on the new jersey turnpike, northbound, approaching the pennsylvania turnpike. right lane block, happened near mansfield, doesn't seem to be slowing folks down whole lot this morning. so we will keep you updated on that i95 situation, because things are changing all the time. we do have more rain out there this morning. the lighter rain, falling in philadelphia, right now. but some heavier rain down to the south. and there is a look at the bigger picture, so you see more rain coming in from the west. the clear skies are up in northwestern pennsylvania.
5:36 am
and eventually that will make its way here. so bus stop buddy has the rain gear on this morning. we have clouds, and some more rain in our weather future. and for us, it is still a little bit on the mucky side this morning, 91% relative humidity, and 74 degrees, we'll have our sunrise off initial about an hour, temperatures mostly in the seven's, 60s to the north of us, so we won't get rid of the mugginess until the coal front comes through. see some fog and reduced visibility in lancaster, and pottstown this morning. undoubtedly because of the rain. so showers, thunderstorms on and off throughout the rest of the morning, bit of break, around midday, but we will still have mostly cloudy skies, woe may see few peaks of sun later on in the day, but also, more pop up thunderstorms, high temperature today, 84 degrees, big changes, chris, lauren, in the holiday weekends forecast, tanks to new tropical storm. >> yes, and change is not good either. all right, thank you. 5:36. more breaking news, this time, out of south philadelphia for you. >> delaware river port authority officer has been
5:37 am
injured in a car accident. it happened just before 3:00 this morning, it was on the 2200 block of penrose avenue. officials tell us two cars were involved in that wreck, the officer was taken to the hospital. suffering minor injuries. >> and in bucks county hearing one person is hurt in early morning fire in warminster, that blaze started inside a row home on the 1500 block of charlton place around 2:30. >> the victim rescued then taken to the hospital for smoke inhalation. more information as it comes in, of course, we'll share it with you. meantime a man gunned down right in front of his young son. now the search is on for the shooter. >> this happened about 8:30 last night outside community center in philadelphia mantua neighborhood. the victim was shot three times, again, in front of his boy. he was taken to the hospital where he later died. police tell us the shooting was caught on video, and at this point, there are no arrests, when we get more information on this one, we will keep you updated. >> in new jersey officials have recovered a body during their search for a missing swimmer. body found last night in the delaware river. marine units from new jersey

5:47 am
that firetruck at the time of the crash, report to go captain gilliam. that's when they were brought here. essentially only on the scene for couple of minute before that tractor ill contrary -- tractor-trailer struck the firetruck. here at hahnemann we were expecting a traffic scenario here as well. when we look down at 676, how much, we noticed that traffic traveling westbound, we thought it was going to be back up with all of the traffic being diverted off of i-95, however, it look like your standard rush hour traffic. we know that prior to 5:00 a lot of traffic naturally diverted off because of could be struck sean, off ton broad street. but here you can see, in the area of broad, 676, traffic is pretty normal. so, from that observe tent, everything is going okay. and again, we will continue to stay in touch with captain gilliam. he went back into the hospital, keeping ion those

firefighters. i asked if he could give us an example of the types of injuries that they received. he said co-not at this time. but again, confirmed, all fire fighters stable condition. sue, we cost it to you with traffic. >> okay, so to reiterate where this accident happened, and we will take live look again at the scene, from one of our traffic cameras, we could actually call this the penn's landing area. it is southbound on i95, right after market street, and before you get to washington avenue. so that's where the accident is. and back up isn't too far back from that, definitely to the vine and girard avenue, after that, because of these two separate accidents, we're hearing now from officials, that they think maybe another hour, maybe little more than an hour, there is a tow truck on the scene, trying to take care of that tractor-trailer, and got to get the fire vehicle out of there, as well. so, maybe another hour or so as far as this situation is concerned before they can open
5:49 am
