says it looks like she was overpowered by the suspect even though she fought hard to try to prevent her abduction. he also told nbc 10's christine maddela the victim did a lot of things well, like when she dropped to the ground to avoid being put inside the car. >> it was intelligent the way she could drop down to the floor and try to use gravity on her side. we kind of do the same thing like when you are wrestling around on the ground. you can use gravity to become your strength. >> sylvester tells his students instead of fighting off an attacker using individual movements like pushing with your arms, you need to use whole body movements to garner more strength. stay with "nbc 10 news" and for continuing coverage of the abduction investigates. we have multiple reporters working every angle of this breaking story. we are tracking an accident along i-95.
5:34 pm
let's get to nbc 10's christine maddela live on skyforce 10. >> reporter: this crash is between two cars here on 95 northbound near academy road. one of the cars, the one on the right-hand side is overturned onto its hood blocking two left lanes adding to the normal volume for your afternoon rush hour. so there is a major delay on 95 northbound from the vine street expressway to academy road. so you can expect added delays. no word on any injuries as crews continue to investigate. live in skyforce 10, christine maddela, "nbc 10 news." the polls are open for about two-and-a-half more hours. >> and meteorologist sheena parveen, what is it like for those heading out to vote tonight? it is cool but not very cold. it's not as cool as it was last night at this time. so it is pretty mild outside with temperatures in the mid-60s
5:35 pm
right now. if you're still going to head out to vote this evening, 65 in philadelphia. even pottstown, 63 degrees in allentown. 58 in millville. that's one of the cooler spots and also in atlantic city with temperatures coming in in the upper 50s. the rest of your evening for voting hours, by 7:00 this evening, around 61 degrees. so temperatures will keep on tumbling. by 8:00 once the polls close, we'll see the temperatures approach the upper 50s across the area. aside from this, we have warmer temperatures in the forecast tomorrow and some rain on the way before even colder air moves in. i'll show you all the details and the timing on that coming up. the nbc 10 investigators are keeping tabs on potential election day trouble. they have been checking in with counties across the area. ahead in a live report, why concern is being raised over this.

5:43 pm
boulevard as an alternate. reporting live in skyforce 10, christine maddela, "nbc 10 news." here are some of the stories making headlines on "nbc 10 news" at 5:30. philadelphia police are calling this man a person of interest in the disappearance of carlesha freeland-gaither. these photos are from a pnc bank in aberdeen, maryland. gaither was taken from the sidewalk and shoved into a car on sunday. no one has seen from her since. her glasses and cell phone were found at the scene. a former university of pennsylvania professor serving five to ten years for killing his wife was on the witness stand today in norristown, montgomery county. rafael rob is accused of hiding millions of dollars from his daughter. his wife's estate is suing to get the money back. and the person who shot a delaware state university student last night is still at large. the young man was shot at an off-campus residence hall north of the main campus in dover. the student is now recovering in the hospital with
5:44 pm
non-life-threatening injuries. police have not offered a description of the shooter. the nbc 10 investigators have been keeping track of potential election problems all day long. >> investigative reporter mitch blocker is just finding out there's major fallout from an inaccurate and misleading mailer. >> the mailer came from a union bank political action committee. a flier from a pennsylvania working committee sent 30,000 registered voters information with the wrong polling place. the group says it was simple human error. the pack was going to show the nonpartisan election watchdog committee of 70 got nearly 400 phone calls from philadelphia alone, most to do with polling location confusion. the executive director ellen kaplan says far more people were confused about where to vote than normal. >> the volume of calls is much higher today which we attribute
5:45 pm
to this incorrect mailing. now, the question is whether it's going to impact voter turnout. and we don't know that yet. it's too early to say. >> intentionally accepteding out misleading information is a violation of code. there's no reason to assume that's what happened here, but we are told the district attorney will investigate after the election. the nbc 10 investigators are also looking into problems at the polls for non-native english speakers and the handicap. we are also keeping tabs of the election nearing. for the investigators, i'm mitch blocker, "nbc 10 news."ç and we are looking at a mild night. tonight we'll be seeing the

5:47 pm
bringing in the warm air for tomorrow. and until all this rain passes through, the cold air behind it will be staying far to our west. so here's what it looks like across much of the eastern seaboard. temperatures in the 60s. so our air is coming in from the southeast at the moment. and this will continue as we go into tomorrow. so another warm day tomorrow. we don't really cool down until after the rain, so until about friday, that's when you notice the temperature drop. for today we stay dry with the clouds still with us. a mild night. then for tomorrow, mostly cloudy conditions. 4:00 p.m. wednesday you notice the clouds around but no rain with any of the clouds. then late wednesday into early thursday, that's when we see the rain approaching. so thursday, 10:00 a.m., we'll have showers across the area. some of you will be dealing with it for the morning commute. then through the day thursday, some pockets of heavy rain are possible through the afternoon. and then by 5:00 p.m. thursday, we start to see this all shifting mostly in to south jersey and delaware. that's the cold front pushing through to start to clear out going into friday.
5:48 pm
and the cold starts to set in as we go towards the end of the week. so temperatures will be dropping down into the 50s as opposed to near 70 like we were today. for tonight, we do stay mild. 53 for the low in philadelphia. 45 areas north and west. not as cool as last night. clouds will stick around and will be with us for tomorrow. so you will notice the increase in cloud cover tomorrow. another warm day at 66 to 70. kind of like today with the temperatures, but the clouds will be here especially on thursday. but that will be the rainy day. 63 for the high temperature thursday with the rain. so kind of a cool rainy day. then friday we clear up. but we're windy and we're colder. high temperatures only in the mid-50s. saturday morning to start off your weekend, we are colder in the 30s to start off your saturday. only topping out near 60 degrees. kind of like last week. and then on sunday we have a chance of showers and temperatures in the mid-50s all the way through the eagles' game on monday. and also tuesday for veterans day.

governor tom corbett cast his ballot early this morning in pittsburgh. the republican incumbent faces an uphill battle to hold on to his job. democrat tom wolf has consistently led in the polls. wolf voted outside york this afternoon. and tonight he looks to make corbett the first governor in modern pennsylvania political history to lead a re-election campaign. and joining us to discuss the governor's race is a man who knows all about what both candidates are going through. >> former pennsylvania governor ed rendell is watching the returns as they come in tonight. thank you so much for joining us. tom wolf has held a double-digit lead over tom corbett since the may primaries. what are your predictions for tonight? >> well, i think tom wolf is going to be winning but it will be closer than the polls indicated. the last polls were 13% to 14%. i think it's probably going to be 8%, 9%, 10% margin.
5:50 pm
but that's a healthy margin. pennsylvania is a purple state in presidential elections where it is always close, 2.5 points, 3 points. an 8 to 9% victory is the equivalent of a landslide. >> governor rendell, looking beyond the election tonight, what does pennsylvania need to do to succeed? >> well, he's got to find a way to generation more economic growth. you know, we have over a billion dollar deficit and it's basically because we are 50 out of 50 states in job creation. when i was in office, we were 9 out of 50 states. taxes means revenue, and revenue means we can do a lot of things we need to do. so tom wolf's first task will be to balance the budget. but his second task will be to get the pennsylvania economy moving again. >> governor rendell, we know the midterms have become a real fight for control of the senate. do you believe republicans will
5:51 pm
get control of both chambers? >> well, i was pretty certain that was going to happen until the nbc/wall street journal poll on friday found that democrats said they were likely to vote, 57% of the democrats. and republicans 58%. if they are both, the intensity on both sides is the same, it could be a good night for the democrats. but the odds are, there are so many seats the democrats have to defend. the odds are that the republicans will take back the senate tonight. >> a big night to watch. former pennsylvania governor ed rendell, thank you so much for sharing insight with us tonight. we will have all of the results here on nbc 10 and always on and as they come in, races from pennsylvania, new jersey and delaware, stay tuned to nbc 10. we'll hear from the winners and losers on the air with "nbc 10 news" at 11:00. online at and on your mobile device with the "nbc 10 news" app. and nbc 10 has new
