5:38 am
the crack that shut it down? here is sky fox last night when they reopened it one way at a time. they safely did this. notice in the sky fox video you will see big you mr. trucks. they were not loaded with salt but with heavy steel, they were testing this bridge out before they let the public drive over it and then figured it is good this way, got other way lets open this thing, way earlier then we planned to, early april and that was the best news of all, because the warm weather that we had up until now, cooperated, and in helping to get this things fixed and studied to find out what caused the crack. even though they don't know what cautioned the crack they are confident that no further cracks may happen, and we have all these sensors on the bridge. they are confident that if anything does happen, they will know bit right away. here is some of the reaction last night, to this good news. >> several weeks ahead of schedule, you know, thanks to a lot of hard work buy a lot of people on both side of the

5:40 am
thinks at 6:00, over in new jersey, i'm sure new jersey signs along the turnpike are saying hey, you can take this bridge now, as you used to, so i think that is how they are getting it, word of mouth. truckers talk to each other over cb radios. i'm sure they are getting the word as time moves on. >> they are so programmed to take different route and then see yellow flashing they think it is still close budd now opened. 5:40. fail police say someone is going around shooting people with paint balls in roxborough four people say paint baller shot them on tuesday, detectives say that the trigger happy guys they are driving an older white dodge caravan you see there in the video. they hit one person in the eye and that person needed six stitches. check out what happened to this small plane yesterday afternoon. it is a homemade plane that went off runway and crashed at trenton robbinsville airport. our fresco user detective dan thank you for shooting this video police say the 79 year-old pilot was trying to
