tv 9 News Now at 6am CBS November 4, 2011 6:00am-7:00am EDT
the clouds now. we'll get sunshine this afternoon. highs today 55 to 60. yesterday, we got to 64 so yeah you'll notice a difference and a chill moving in tonight as we drop into the 30s. there's the rain south of us though. couple of sprinkles still might happen here over the next few hours. in fact down south, from fredericksburg down to thornburg but especially ashland and richlands may just get clipped by this. over to monika samtani with up late on the friday morning commute. it's been a tough one especially on the north side of town. good morning everybody. look at the icons i put up. first of all there's an accident on the outer loop at new hampshire avenue and another one at old georgetown road where there was a deer struck. and the one we've been talking about all morning long is the inner loop of the beltway at georgia avenue. a fatal early morning crash. we're going to go to our surae chinn live at the vane with more details -- scene with more details. surae? >> reporter: monika, things have definitely improved traffic wise. we are on the outer loop
looking across to the accident scene. the tractor-trailer still here getting inspected. making sure all the mechanics are working, the brakes, to the. we don't know how long the tractor-trailer will be here for inspection but it's off to the side not really affecting traffic at this point because all lanes are open. what happened was the tractor- trailer slowed down because of a construction work zone and the driver behind it full force we're talking about speeds possibly 60 and higher, definitely a factor in this accident slammed into the back of this semi. we're also being told that again, speed was a factor. the person in that -- driving the car was fatally injured. we don't have any identity orage or anything like that -- or age or anything like that. but again this happened around 1:30 this morning. hopefully they'll get that
cleared out shortly but this tractor-trailer but some of the video you saw of the car definitely smashed. almost nearly in half. definitely a very bad tragic scene here. obviously as we get more information about the identity of the driver we'll pass that on to you. right now, the tractor-trailer getting inspected. back to you monika. >> thank you so much for that information. surae and as he said on the inner loop of the beltway that's eastbound 495 at georgia avenue, all traffic is now getting through. here's what it looks like on the beltway at 66 and gallows road heading for the beltway. an accident blocks the two right lanes and causing the heavy backup trying to get past the accident scene. over to springfield on the northbound side of i-95. where if you're planning to head over to springfield you have that delay at the occoquan river and beyond that it's okay on to 395 and the 14th street bridge. no issues to report right now. coming up in my next report, update on area roadways again at 6:12. back to you guys.
its is 6:303. the latest look at unemployment. >> comes out in about two hours, jessica doyle joins us with a preview. >> that's right. we're at the point where the job market, we're not bad. is considered good. >> yeah. right. right. >> it really is the case. and this report is expected to be not all that bad because we are likely to see a lot of jobs created last month. about 100,000. just not enough to do much about that pesky unemployment rate. it remains stuck at 9.1%. for the fourth month in a row. going inside the numbers, the private sector likely added 120 125,000 jobs. where the -- 125,000 jobs. the really good part about this report at least for wall street is that traders are spending a little less time angsting about jobs lately. that's because fears of the double dip recession have eased in the last few weeks as economic reports have been more upbeat and the financial markets have been more stable.
>> and we have the g-20 that's wrapping up in france today and a change in what greece may be doing? >> another change. yeah. >> we're definitely seeing some easing of worries at the g-20 about greece at least for the moment. leaders of the g-20 essentially told greece take the new bailout plan and austerity measures or else we won't help you anymore. you're going to go bankrupt within weeks. that was enough pressure for greece's prime minister to scrub his plan to put the bailout to a vote within his own country. president obama is keeping eclose yay on the situation at the meeting -- close eye on the situation. a government collapse in greece could trigger a global recession. now greece's prime minister george papandreou faces a critical confidence vote this morning. he could very well lose his job. the stakes are incredibly high for greece at this time. the ue leaders have been discussing out to kick greece out of the economic union. that would have dire consequences for the country and of course very well impact
the euro itself. >> we've been talk, about this, ireland was considering getting out and great britain doesn't want to be a part of this. boy the dominoes could fall then. >> isn't greece the country where it's culturally acceptable to skip out on the taxes? >> i wouldn't say that it would be culturally acceptable but it definitely happens. >> thanks jess. 6:05. we turn now to the presidential campaign and a big day in the controversy surrounding republican herman cain. one of the women who has accused him of sexual harassment in the 1990s may decided to to break her silence. she reportedly signed an agreement to stay quiet as part of a settlement deal. cain has said the allegations were leaked by his campaign rival texas governor rick perry. sunday, maryland senator ben cardin will announce officially his plans to run again next november. the democrat won the election in 2006 beating then lieutenant
governor michael steele. before the senate cardin served ten terms in the u.s. house. he could wind up facing a challenge in the democratic primary from state senator anthony muse of prince george's county. we have a call now into howard county, maryland, and state police. more about a crash on interstate 95. here's what we know so far. police pursuit started last night in howard county and it ended just before 10:00 when the suspect's car crashed into two other vehicles on southbound 95 near the icc construction. we're told at least one woman was hurt and taken to the hospital and again we're trying to get more information on this. update now to a house fire story we brought you yesterday as breaking news during the morning show. 67-year-old sandra vidas died from her injuries she suffered in the fire. it happened in aspen hill, maryland. neighbors tell us the two may have been hoarders. her husband is in the hospital with serious injuries.

discovered as i participating in this is that women have a harder time getting diagnosed when they're having their heart illness. >> we talked about that earlier in the week. the symptoms are so different from the men that a lot of times they're not recognized immediately and they really have to step up and -- stepup and say test me. >> the sense of the community is an important part of the return and reward for what we invest in this. >> 15 seconds left. you guys tomorrow if you go down to nationals park, lockheed martin is giving these away. >> i picked one at random. it's called follow the leader. it's comment for the family to get engaged and you pull out a card each week and do one of the activities, the one i picked out follow the leader, take turns in leading an exercise among the family who whether it's just jumping packs or smiling. >> it's a lifelong endeavor. we hope it's one that you are
