has significant front end damage. new information i got is that the driver is in critical condition. he was taken a few feet away into temple university hospital because this crash happened right outside temple hospital. the driver is in critical condition. at this time, investigators believe he was speeding, that's because there are very defined skid marks, less than 100 yards from the intersection where this happened. so police believe he was speeding northbound on broad when he was approaching an intersection with a red light. there was stopped traffic. and he veered to avoid the car in front of him because he was going so fast. and when he went into the southbound lane he came head on with the ambulance. the ambulance was transporting a patient here to temple hospital. but i'm told that the patient who was in the back of the ambulance did not sustain any more significant injury. so that individual was just taken right into the hospital. but again, new information is that the driver who crashed into
the ambulance preliminarily, well, he is in critical condition. fortunately, he's alert and he's talking so they're about to go upstairs and talk to him and get his account of what happened. reporting live, katy zachry. second chance, that's what the taney dragons have after losing the little league world series. if the philly hometown team bounces back, they will have a shot at the championship. taney taking on illinois, at 7:30. mo'ne davis great in the first two starts was roughed up last night. she gave up this homer in the second inning. taney had a chance to come back in the fifth. the dragons lost 8-1. nbc10's matt delucia is live in williamsport. so, matt, a tough loss for taney. the good news, they'll be back at it today. >> reporter: yeah, tracy, not often that you get a second

the coach said there was no question that mo'ne did not have her "a"-game last night. at this point they were playing to get to saturday and it was always the plan to take her out regardless. we'll take another look at the stadium. yesterday, people came up from the delaware valley by the buses. the entire stadium, the fans and the field here were packed. some people staked out a spot and waited for hours. we're talking to the taney fans who still stand behind the people. we're going to get audio from that coach. right now live in williamsport, i'm matt delucia. >> mo'ne davis is staying positive. she tweeted chicago tomorrow #believeindragons. #taneydragons. she also tweeted out the "sports illustrated" cover of herself. and the "daily news" shows mo'ne
