9:33 am
new this morning. one person is in the hospital after this fire in philadelphia's kensington neighborhood. nbc10 was on the scene of this 3,000 block of frankfurt avenue shortly after it started around 6:30 this morning. firefighters had it under control in less than half an hour. right now the american red cross is heading to the scene to help out anybody who needs it. there's no word yet on how the person or what their condition is at this point. the cause of the fire is still under investigation. lgs thalso this morning, on person is dead and two injured following an accident on roosevelt boulevard. this happened right around 6:00 this morning along the boulevard. police tell us that there was a crash and then a person was struck and killed. we're working to get more details about exactly what happened here. investigators in philadelphia are also looking into this accident. police tell nbc10 that a woman is in extremely critical condition after she was struck by a car in north philadelphia.
9:34 am
this happened right around 4:00 this morning at broad right in front of temple university hospital. the driver did stop but flis are investigating whether she may have been hit by a second vehicle. they're looking at surveillance video as part of their investigation. philadelphia police are also investigating a deadly crash in the city's logan neighborhood. nbc10 was on the scene at sten on the avenue and logan street where the driver crashed right into a pole. he died in the accident. investigators are trying to figure out exactly what led up to this crash. good news this morning. strike averted. septa and the transport workers union reached a tentative two-year agreement. this is what it looked like just before 11:15 last night when the negotiators walked out of the old city hotel where they had been negotiating for several hours. it means that nearly a million daily riders can still depend on buses, trolley, and subways. nbc10 spoke to one rider in philadelphia's frankfurt neighborhood who tells us she's been watching the developments
9:35 am
all week. >> were you worried getting close to the end last night? >> you know, we always worried to figure out how we're going to get around. you know, it's a big city. you know, philadelphia, but, you know, like i said, i'm glad they came to that agreement. you know, god bless everybody, you know, came to an agreement and weapon didn't have to walk out. >> similar sentiment among the other riders we spoke with this morning. union members still have to ratify the contract and that vote is set for friday. a hunch, that's what u.s. marshals say they were following when they captured accused cop killer eric frein. they arrested frein on thursday night near this abandoned airplane hangar in monroe county. they say that his team figured that if they were on the run then they would hide in a place like that. according to that commander, he and his team spied somebody moving from the woods towards the hangar and they were competent it was frein. they then took him into custody
9:36 am
ending the 48-day manhunt. >> i don't believe anybody expected him to be apprehended in that manner. i don't think anybody expected him to appear how he did. >> frein appeared clean shaven with a cut on his nose. when he was arraigned yesterday in milford. he's being held without bail. a preliminary hearing is scheduled for november 12th. the visible cuts on frein's face have led some to question whether there was some kind of struggle when he was arrested. but both state police and u.s. marshals have agreed that frein surrendered without a fight. that's what they've been saying all along. still, there are some conflicting reports on where his injuries came from. u.s. marshals say that frein got the scrapes on his face when he was taken down on the asphalt. but state police say that frein was injured in the woods during the seven weeks that he alluded officers. frein is facing a number of charges for the shooting death of corporal bryon dickson. trooper alex douglass was critically injured in the ambush. he was released from the hospital about two weeks ago and
9:37 am
continues to recover at a rehabilitation center. you can count on nbc10 and for continuing coverage of the eric frein investigation including his next appearance before a judge. today six police officers in one montgomery county community are expected to be laid off. that's a big deal because that means that half the police force there will be reduced. a judge rejected an injunction by police officers in franconia township. the union tried to get a temporary injunction to stop the layoffs. the union claims that the township violated labor laws by refusing to bargain with police before the cuts were made. again, the cuts mean the police department would lose about half of its force. now to decision 2014. the county countdown is on. it is the final weekend of campaigning ahead of tuesday's election. the big contest in our area is the race for governor of pennsylvania. republican incumbent governor
