7:00 am
>> we will build a great wall along the southern border. >> the republican nominee laying out his policy on immigration, after meeting with mexico's president yesterday. but there is some dispute over who is going pay for the wall. >> and, it is almost official. and it is almost official. philadelphia will be the center of the nfl universe, next april. hosting the nfl draft, what will another high profile event mean for the city? >> firefighters hurt, big accident, big story, but we also have to keep track of the rest of the weaken, sue, with hermine. look how big she getting. >> a huge difference overnight in the track, what we were saying 24 hours ago, and still, a lot of uncertainty with that forecast. >> okay. more on that, that's straight up 7:00 this thursday, now, it has been busy morning, alex. >> yes, because firetruck tractor-trailer accident caused major problems at
7:01 am
3:00 a.m. steve keeley has been on this story, from i-95 south. jenny joyce, five firefighters injured at hahnemann hospital. and she is thereto update us on their condition. we start with steve keeley. >> it looks like he is on the bridge to martin street. >> reporter: the people just joining us action at 7:00 like so many do, have avoided all of the bad news, so we start with good news for your thursday morning. which is a rarity in this news business. you see traffic knowing smoothly. those headlights are nine southbound, drivers, and they are able to drive for the first time since 3:00 a.m. southbound, because they were forced off at the vine street expressway all night, and all morning, because of this accident. so, the accident happened under the chestnut street bridge, and then went to the next overpass, and so, you saw a jackknife tractor-trailer, under this bridge, for three plus hours, so they were able to remove t and then in front of this accident, of the
7:02 am
jackknife tractor-trailer i had pictures taken of the previous accident, this tractor-trailer stopped when it hit that wall under the under pass. but, it rearended apparently ladder 16, the firetruck, that was reacting to a previous accident, with two cars here, right before the columbus boulevard exit. and the split up. so you can see, ladder 16 is one of the long ladder trucks, where you have two drivers essentially, 1n front, and you have the one in the back. and you can see the damage in the back in that driver lucky that he essentially is okay, because, when you are hit by a tractor trail here knows what could happen. so he was elevated, that probably helped when damage is mostly at the bottom. look at the firetruck close up, you can see it, got hit really hard because firetrucks are made of reinforced steel and you're seeing that steel bent. so, everybody, okay. and traffic now okay for the first time, now we do have some rough weather. sue warned us, the rain would be off and on, off and on, and
7:03 am
little on again. greg, come on over here for a second. and we look down, we're at the market street overpass right now. gave you a look, free weather shot as a bonus. there is the skyline. you know the psfs building. city hall, comcast building all lost in the low clouds, as we get to more rain and hopefully no more traffic trouble, because of the rain. everybody take it easy. learn your lesson. that the people overnight didn't driving too fast for conditions, and that's why we had these accidents. >> and the building that's also obstructed, hahnemann hospital, that's where jenny joyce is right now. sure, all of these firefighters stable? >> reporter: yes, all five firefighters in stable condition. that's according to a philadelphia fire department captain who came out, maybe about 45 minutes ago, to give us that update. he went back inside with the firefighters. he told us that actually none of the five has even been admitted to the hospital. they were brought here, as a precaution. i know that steve showed you that photograph of ladder 16
7:04 am
on this scene with the smashed rear, the truck was hit in the back. and the five firefighters actually were on board of the firetruck at the time of the accident. they've been dispatched to that area to be on stand by after a previous two car crash, they were going to try to provide a buffer to make sure that traffic going through along southbound i95 would not get in the way of that accident scene. captain gale yan can give us a better sense of what they were trying to do at the time that they were struck by the tractor-trailer. >> accident scene, ladder company, parallel just like you see police officer doing, with the lights on, hopefully oncoming traffic will see that and start moving over, for whatever reason, still under investigation, the tractor-trailer struck to do that and struck the apparatus. >> reporter: we do know that ladder 16 was dispatched at 3:11 this morning. they were hit by 3:20.
7:05 am
so we believe that they had been hit just a short time after arriving on scene. and they were all again all five firefighters were on the trek at the time of the accident which we can only assume was a good thing that they had not gotten out of that truck when that tractor-trailer came pomeling through. >> un ream. boy when you hear tractor-trailer slams into the back after firetruck you think a lot of people will be severely injured. >> thank goodness they're okay. >> the queen of traffic cameras is coming up next. her name is sue serio. >> all right, traffic camera number one shows, look at that, everybody, is moving through the area pretty smoothly. it looks like all lanes are open, although i do see some lights there. in is i95 southbound, right? >> southbound. >> where we are, is this northbound, bridge street? oh, that's the bridge street accident. that will what we are looking at. i95 northbound accident approaching bridge street. i think that's what we are looking at right now. as far as the rest of what's
7:06 am
concerning us this morning, is the vine street expressway, that took a lot of traffic off of i95, but now things are moving a lot better. we have the usual back upcoming off the schuylkill and going eastbound on the vine. but westbound vine street expressway much improved, was pretty stack up, while we had that closure of i-95. so, as far as traffic, improving little bit. but the weather still pretty bad. as steve keeley was telling us earlier this morning, it is potentially the reason for that big crash that we had on i-95, lesson for all every us, slow down, take it easy, because you see more heavy rain moving in from the west. we look at the bigger picture, you can see, the clearing is all the way up in northwestern pennsylvania, but that's hours away from us, because we expect slow progress of this frontal system. here is bus stop buddy with his rain gear on. you will need it today. if you can fine your umbrella, it has been a while since we needed it. 63 degrees mount pocono, 74 in

7:08 am
that shows the whole thing, and at this point there are no arrests. >> new jersey state police have snot yet identified a body that was pulled out of the delaware river yesterday, crews had been searching the river, after a man went missing. the body was found last night, it is unknown if it is the body of that missing swimmer. it is believed so. 7:08. police asking driver involved in a deadly hit-and-run in feltonville tuesday night to turn themselves in. fifty-eight year old rue eel perez, while riding his bike, hit by silver gmc yukon found few blocks away with no sign of the driver. anyone with information should call police. >> should finds out more this morning about the status of silver liner repairs, in july, over a third of the fleet was pulled off the tracks due to structural defect. at 8:00 a.m. the company held a press conference, at at bensalem. penndot responsible for making
7:09 am
or -- replacement beam for the tram. passengers can have a better idea scheduling moving forward and when the silver line cars will be back on the tracks. remember first talking about this, had the long lines, they say expect it to last a while at least until the end of the summer. now summer starting to wind down, school starting back up, should have an update. >> i remember they said we'll be up, and the cars back by what november? maybe it will be faster than that. >> at love people will be relieved to hear that if that's the case. >> always fun to go to the nfl draft. now you can take maybe the orange line or walk over to the ben franklin parkway, or take a trolley. you know, get there anyway you can. >> don't have to watch it just on your tv. >> go watch it because it is in the sit of brotherly love, sisterly affection, the draft will be here 2017. >> they have to make it official first. so that will happen today. but the venue will be on the ben franklin parkway, just like chicago did in the past
7:10 am
few years, it will be outside in tents. from the pope to the dnc, to this weekend, the city has hosed its fair share of events. >> we know how to do this. >> so what should the city expect with this latest one? >> showcase philadelphia, similar to when the pope made his visit, you know, philly was on the news everywhere. >> i think it is a real big deal. >> it is a big party. i mean, we know how to party here, don't we? >> we know how to party, but are we technically invited to the party since we don't have a draft pick? >> well, ya, we r2 hundred thousand people show up for this event. >> that's pretty cool. >> isn't that ridiculous? >> could have $81 million economic impact on the city, and the announcement will lab today at noon at city hall. kind of like having a house party, at your house, but you don't have any control over the food or what's going on, because you don't have the pick. that's what it will probably
7:11 am
feel like. >> locked in the balesment, can't get upstairs to the chips and dip and the booze. >> exactly. at least we're hoe g the party. >> cleveland has our pick, pretty sure it is cleveland browns have our first rounds pick. darn it. well, it is fine. did the gamble pay off? did you see donald trump go to mexico yesterday? meet with the president of mexico? and then finally delivers his speech in arizona last night. immigration reform was the topic. just as new polls show the race is tightening between donald trump and hillary clinton. >> doug luzader has the details from washington. what actually happened naphtha meeting between trump and the president of mexico? >> ya, it is a good question, hearing some conflicting reports, and it was behind closed doors, so it is tough to say. we start real quickly with these new pole numbers. these are interesting. new fox news poll. just out showing if you factor in third party candidate, libertarian party, green party, all the sudden down to
7:12 am
two-point race initially between hillary clinton and donald trump. and that does not take into account everything that transpired yesterday. >> donald trump taking the stage in phoenix to talk immigration. serving up the kind of red meat first put him on the path to the gop nomination. >> we will build a great great wall along the southern border >> and mexico will pay for the loss. >> that's hard-line, a day began with a meeting between trump and mexican president, enrique pena nieto. where the tone was a little friendlier. even from enrique pena nieto who once compared trump to hitler and motion lean i. >> see, might disagree on several issues. but your presence here, mr. donald trump, shows that we do have funds mental common grounds. >> we are united by our support for democracy, a great love for our people and the
7:13 am
contributions of millions of mexican-americans to the united states. trump's campaign no doubt hoping to benefit from the optics here, with trump appearing presidential on a world stage. and while trump tried to clarify his immigration policies, speaking in arizona, left unanswered what to do with the millions of illegal immigrants who haven't committed other crimes. hillary clinton meantime tried to win over veterans in ohio, attacking trump over his visit to mexico. >> and it certainly takes more than trying to make up for a year of insult, insinuations, by dropping in on our neighbors for a few hours and flying home again. that's not how it works. >> and as far as this issue every builds ago wall and having mexico pay for it, trump says that the issue was not discussed, that the meeting with mexico's president, president says that he made it clear from the get go that mexico would not foot the bill. >> well, i'm not picking up

7:15 am
it is illegal, but the city for over 07 years haslett it go on. >> it is not safe. it blocks vision, there have been few incident around here, but like it is a liability around here because of the space. >> so the mayor's offers tells us if any changes are made, plans to have discussions with the people who live there, mayor kenney says, those people are the ones who are most affected by the median parking so their opinions matter the most. mike anal next. >> i would think so. all right, thank you, 7:15. okay, our weather will be affected this weekend, supposed to be beautiful memorial, look, labor day. >> labor day. >> memorial day is in may right? >> yes. this is labor day. >> so the ends of summer basically. >> gosh, can't believe it. >> no more white. >> looking to florida to check on the weather. i know it sounds weirds but in other words and other areas along the gulf coast, powerful tropical systems are threatening people in both

7:36 am
say, no snitching. there is a small number of people on the streets that are creating the problem. for the most part, philadelphia is a safe citiment we do have a great police department who wants to help us, but we have to work together and we have to help them. >> okay. i want to get with you next, three people we have sitting in front here, they work with this organization called philadelphia cease-fire. and campaigns to stop the have i lens, so are we missing here something here then, still snapping what do we need to be doing? >> i think what we are missing is the violence, public health issue, and can be prevented. that's what we believe. we believe it is a disease that transmits from person to person. and what we're trying to do interrupt the spreaded that far disease. we believe that young people, who are making poor decisions, can change their behavior by working with one of our outreach workers lycra heed here. they spent significant time, three telephone calls a week, staying in the ear of these young people who are engage in the high risk activity.
7:37 am
and we know because this particular program is being replicated in 52 cities across the united states with eight international countries, and every state proven to be effective if in fact we get in there, identify the individuals certainly at high risk and engage in the high risk activity can make a difference in the their lives. >> i want to ask you, you said it is not about we do news news investigatement, report on these stories also say okay, let's get the guns off the streets. you are saying it is more complicated than that. why is it more complicated? >> because our babies are dying now, our babies f we're not paying attention, god is trying to tell us something. our babies is being shot down in the streets, like, you know, it is no justification for that. you know, you don't get pops for. that will that's not gangster, these babies, six

7:39 am
purpose in life. the police can only do so much. let them do their john. we have a responsibility. specially as black in the community, stand up shall specially when it comes to protecting our women, and our children. >> when you are saying stands up, do you mean by the fact people aren't coming forward? somebody knows something? >> not even about that, police, family, that i'm accountable where my son is at. i'm in his life. protecting the innocent means that we got to a duty to do. we got a job to do. and men first. you can't couldn't stanley look outside the community to help up do for me what i am capable every doing for myself. but we need to create jobs, we need to do a lot of things for these young men on the corner. it is two fold. let the politicians do what they do. let the police do what they do. but men in our community, we have obligation, in order to preserve our families. it is in not, when you look what's going on.
