montana congressal candidate with ties to our area, gets a huge win. we will tell you what happened. all right. good day everybody, we made it it is friday. hi there, guys. >> how are you. >> holiday weekend. >> we're excited about that but there is always a fly in the ointment. hopefully we will get rain out of the way. we have traffic trouble. we will get to that in a second. we will start with the weather >> we will start with your forecast and look at those storms that came through last night. first to day will be a seven out of 10. that is better then yesterday. we had left over showers around and breezy out there as you can see, 60 degrees with 8-0 percent relative humidity. sunrise time 5:38. planning out your day there will be cloud cover but some sunshine break go through as well. seventy-five or 76 degrease and breezy throughout the afternoon, and here's current radar, you can see, bulk of the low pressure system that came through yesterday moved up toward new england but we will get wrap around moisture and there are still a few
4:02 am
showers moving through, but as we zoom into the lasso owe that didn't work out. well, anyway, we had thunderstorms, coming through last night and it was pretty severe and caused flash flooding as well. possibly, contributing to the accident on the turnpike last night, karen. lets talk about that accident right now lets get right over with bob kelly because he can go out to what happened at the scene. we have live reporters, we have steve keeley out there, we have jenny joyce out there but if we didn't get a check you can explain where this is and what we know right now. >> exactly. here's the deal. southbound lanes of the new jersey turnpike between exits number three, which is the black horse pike, and then exit number two, which is route 322. so on the southbound side of the new jersey turnpike, again , a tractor trailer, and a charter bus collided, around midnight or so right around the same time we had those heavier storms coming through. now, it looks like there is
4:03 am
one lane of traffic, getting through, right now. however, this is an active situation, it will change as morning goes on, for anyone getting ready to leave, step outside the door right now, would i consider using 295, that will be your best bet. you can take 295 from exit number four which is mount laurel pick that up along any of the towns here 295 will keep you going south and avoid whatever, scenario is going to take place here on the new jersey turnpike. i do know they will have to close it all together, in order to upright any of the overturned vehicles, they are still investigating it, there is still a lot of crews out there but at lee one lane opened at the moment. northbound is good. this could not come at a war time giving holiday weekend overnight and it is friday, folks will be on the move as we move through the day and through this interchange here, you know, folks are using the freeway to get down to the shore. so the alternate of 295, kind of puts you inside to the
4:04 am
shore traffic if this continues, through to the rest of our morning rush hour. on top of that. all that rain from last night, there is flooding, every where , and i came in, this morning, i'll tell but that in a second, 130 and 322 on the new jersey side of the commodore barry bridge, flooded out under water. southbound lanes of route 55, closed at route 47, and a pedestrian accident investigation from the overnight, i came in on the martin luther king drive to avoid an accident on the schuylkill there is like five spots where it is flooded out. i mean, log flum style coming in here so just be careful venturing out the front door we will check jam cams and keep you covered throughout the morning, karen, back to you. let's continue right now, lets get to the passengers, all those people injured, they have gone over to the hospital , lets get out to jenny joyce over at cooper in camden where those victims have been taken, jenny, good morning, what do we know.

other. steve, what do we know and what do you see. >> reporter: all right. well, the good news is that you heard from jenny, nobody seriously hurt, we got word from the state police it was minor injuries. or good news is what you are looking at that the turnpike headed southbound and bob mentioned, a very busy day, and i drive this on the way into work, it is busy 24 hours a day some reason and a lot of times it is only to lanes in south jersey. you see bus and tow truck. i counted 13 vehicles on this side of the overpass. through see tour bus which they got righted. i was told through an e-mail from a police officer early on that had overturned. greg will follow me and we will walk across this country road called ogden station road overpass and you will see the tractor trailer that i was told around 1:00 a.m. had been they got that straightened out that is on a tow truck. you can see why that right lane is block for a good
4:09 am
length of time, bus and tractor trailer, went quite a distance past that bus before it finally stopped. they have both vehicles involved in this crash, on tow trucks but for some reason they are still over there they will to have shut this down. bob, you know that, they will to have shut this down to get these vehicles out and get tow trucks straightened out and on the road and it will be slow going behind all of those vehicles. it will be a complete shut down again southbound eventually when they want these vehicles out. maybe they will do it at the same time but we will be standing here and let you know when that happens, so, that is the scene here, it could have been so much worse. it sounded so much worse with 50 people being reported hurt, from the get go, but, what a month it has been for bus accidents and sad news, almost a daily basis for these buses and school buses and that tour bus down in maryland that started it all with the local school kid on it, karen you are right, that is the truth, people still in the hospital from both of those other bus accidents involving children g

4:13 am
4:14 am

4:15 am
weekend we hope whatever you have planned or whatever you will do whether it is down the shore, up the mountains, your friend backyard, swimming pool around the way that you have a wonderful weekend. lets get a check of the forecast because that is what we all want to know, sue. >> this is a tough one i have to tell but we will look back before ahead and this is 12 hour loop of the last 12 hours look at this line of thunderstorms coming through say between eight and midnight last night. it was a lot of rain, thunder, lightening, woke a lot of us up, including my dog, and very , very loud and we will zoom in on the area of where that accident took place, and there is 322 and the turnpike, and we see that they got their share of heavy rain and is there a look at that lightening and thunder as it came through around 10:30, when it hit that area last night around about. now we are back to right now and bulk of all that has moved up to our north east but we are still seeing rain in the area. some of it north and east of
4:16 am
philadelphia up toward allentown area, down toward buckingham in bucks county and south of the line from say bensalem down through lumberton in new jersey and at the new jersey shore we just saw an area of rain, move off the coast, so it is on its way out. 60 degrees, in mount pocono. sixty-one in wildwood. wind are going to pick up a little bit today as that storm exits and high pressure tries to build in. seventy-seven is where we should be for an average hyle we will get there eventually but we weren't there yesterday with 68 degrees. we will go through weekend with you and i guess, if we had, to summarize tonight one word it would be unsettled, not perfect but not a wash out 76 degrees today. tomorrow mostly sunny, 78 but could be a sure late in the day. sunday there could be a shore late in the day. there is a greater likelihood
4:17 am
we should get up to 78 degrees on monday but there is still that chance of a shower, warming up, by tuesday, when everybody is getting back to reality and don't forget your forecast is available on the radio, every day, on 101.1 more fm, bob kelly. >> hey sueguy good morning everybody. 4:17. the scene of the accident we have been telling but between bus and tractor trailer is right here at ogden station road, just south of route 45, and almost, you know, approaching exit number two, which is route 322. lets go outside to our live camera. steve keeley's news van on the scene. this is tractor trail their was involve in the accident. again, first report this morning was that the tractor trailer was jackknifed and that the tour bus that was involved was off the roadway and overturn. i did see a picture early this morning of the bus overturned. it looks like they have
4:18 am
upright that had bus and pulling it out of the grass but we're again on the ogden station road overpass and there is the scene, the emergency vehicles and these guys here are heading southbound, down toward exit number two which is route 322 and there is one lane opened. that gives you an idea of the scene. lets come back to the maps. if you are getting ready to head outside the front door not sure whether they will close this down at all through rest of the morning, 295 would be your best alternate and then again it is just south of the freeway and approaching route 322 as the accident scene. now, all of that heavy rain and those thunder boomers last night leaving flooding every where, some spots and we will find them, by accident this morning, route 130, 322, under water, just got word that the brookelawn circle is flooded out, southbound lanes of route 55 for gang heading down to the shore early this morning and use 55, it is closed at
4:19 am
route 47 as police investigate an overnight accident there. your best bet maybe jumping off here and using 49 or you staying with 47, you know, from the get go. martin luther king drive about five different spots where there is full water all across all of the lanes like a log flum coming in this morning. be careful. get crews out and clean out drains. a lot of that is scenario, drains got to get cleaned out from that heavier rain that we received all in a few short period of time last night. here's a live look at 95 near airport philly international hat ground stops throughout the day yesterday, i would definitely check with the airline before you head to the airport, airports opened, the plane being here could be another scenario if it was stuck in the ground stop last night, karen, back to you. the hunt is on for gunman who killed a man just tossing a football with kid outside. our dave schratwieser says senseless murder has a whole
4:20 am
community still searching for answers. >> oh, nice, wonderful kid. we necessity him for more than 15 years. >> reporter: candles lined front porch thursday where benjamin drains lived after he was gunned down in this alley just around the corner tuesday night while tossing a football around with young kid. >> unidentified shooter wearing a gray hoodie blue sweat pants walked past him, turned around and basically executed him. >> reporter: in front of the kid in front of the kid, yes. >> reporter: a memorial to drains, who friend called bj went up at second and nedrow where he collapsed after being shot nine times in the alley across the street good guy all the way around the board. i cannot say nothing bad about him. he was just a good kid. >> never been in trouble a day in his life. we really don't know what this is about. >> reporter: captain clark says the execution style murder was caught on nearby surveillance cameras. he said the boys tossing the
4:21 am
football with drains ran for their lives, when the gun man opened fire. >> you could see their initial response is they jumped and they run, and actually, back in the corner hoping they don't get shot. >> reporter: clark says drains worked for cities water department his father who passed away several years ago was a philadelphia police officer, he also has other relatives, on the police force >> why do you have to do something like that to a kid like that. he don't bother nobody. >> no respect for human life and these individual that are doing this we have to do our best to get them off the street. >> reporter: no one else was injured in the gunfire but police do say that the gunman stood over victim and fired into him on the ground at point blank range. >> there is a $20,000 reward for being offered in this case at the homicide unit, dave schratwieser, fox 29 news. 4:21. more clues into what led to that deadly plane crash near teterboro airport in northern, new jersey. federal investigators say the
4:22 am
jet appeared to turn late turn the runway before it crashed in that industrial area earlier this month. two crew members on board died the small plane had taken off from philadelphia. septa riders, sorry, you will to have pay some more, they have just approved a fare increase and thinks all across the board, one way quick trips will be a quarter more to $2.15. monthly passes going up by five bucks to $96, all of the changes will begin july 1st, septa says it is to help with every day expenses, and for complete list of the changes visit us on fox you have probably gotten one of those fish, scam, even if calls if not once a week. well, that may be changing. there is one carrier trying to crackdown on those calls, and, we will let you know what they are doing. steve keeley, what is the latest out where you are. >> reporter: look at our live picture they are towing bus away right beneath your shot here and i'm looking at this bus from a different angle
4:23 am
from you are and the back of it is smashed in, so that tells me that tractor trailer hit that tour bus, from behind , and that is what pushed it over on to its side and where luggage compartment is, maybe greg has a shot of it now too heavy damage by the engine compartment underneath bus which tells you that is where impact was, maybe the bus was stopped on the side of the road. maybe it had been broken down, i'm just wondering because it was hit from behind like that and you are wand fairing that bus was going the speed limit on the new jersey turnpike at 65 miles an hour it wouldn't have that much damage on it. so they have put the tour bus, you can see on the other side of the under pass. it is right behind the tractor trailer that had been, in the accident with it, and so that is what they are doing just as i suspected they would do in my first live shot they are putting them together so they can toe them out together so they don't to have shut this turnpike down two times.
4:24 am
they will get these things off the road together once the tractor trailer is set to go and i can look at the front of the tractor trailer and i can see toe crew they have it lifted up on the front and as soon as they get it secured to the big tow truck you can bet now that the busies able to move and as soon as tractor trailer is able to move they will get these vehicles up and out so they can get both lanes of the new jersey turnpike reopened, long before sunrise. we will keep you up to date, so good news on the traffic front, bob kelly, and we will let you know as things develop
4:25 am
4:26 am
4:27 am
we have more developments, lets get tout breaking news steve keeley. karen just as i predicted they are towing them both doing and getting them out of here long before sunrise. so flashing lights you see ahead, two big tow trucks one taking a tractor trailer from performance food group that was the name on the back end of it, that obviously rear ended a tour bus full of at least 50 people, and the back end of that bus, the back driver's end of that bus with heavy damage, that got pushed on its side. it is amazing people were not hurt more seriously. we don't know if the bus was stopped but it is being towed away right now. until they get all of the debris off the road they will clean it up, make sure it is safe, they will reopen both lanes momentarily but there is good traffic news and good
4:28 am
news nobody was seriously hurt , i'm amazed when i see that because speed limit is 656789 people drive faster then that in the middle of the night but they are clearing this accident, good work by crews and police and fire department, everybody involved down here in deep south jersey between exits two and three southbound on the new jersey turnpike.
4:29 am
4:30 am
4:31 am
good morning welcome back. we have breaking news developing situation we have a bus and truck accident? steve, what is the latest. >> reporter: well, they are getting rest of the road crews off there were toe vehicles that weren't towing bus drivers and these guys were helping get the vehicles off the road so they just left. you can see flashing lights in the distance and, still some road and crews on the side, so still one lane on the opened, but they will get it all opened soon, karen. >> that is good news, steve. we will have more on. that good morning, bob kelly, thomas drayton has the day off and we have water all over the road. >> thomas is getting ready for barbecue at his house, later today. >> it was on a plane, out of here. >> so you are would the man of the weekend. you have some good news for us >> it is not a bad weekend. it is certainly not going to
