8:00 am
america runs on dunkin'. @ @ if you are just now joining @ounce this saturday morning. @we start with a news alert out @you have hillsborough county. @a deadly wrong-way accident on @the crosstown expressway. @it killed a wrong-way drive and @took the life of a hillsborough @county deputy. @>> anjuli: kelly cowan is live @at the crosstown. @what can you tell us. @>> reporter: absolutely @heartbreaking. @standing at the entrance where @the wrong-way driver probably @took to enter the eastbound or @westbound lane, traveling the @wrong way. @so eastbound lane for the
8:01 am
@was going westbound this @morning. @now you can see behind me, @there are barricades set up, @flashing lights, all kind of @alerts for a driver to know @that they are not to enter that @lane which does. @it is a center lane. @a raised portion of the highway @a raised portion of the @highway. @and it does change over @depending on the time of the @day, but these are here to @allow a driver to know they are @not to enter. @they believe that he would have @gone on the other side of the @road here in order to get on @and just before 3 a.m., he @struck a deputy nearly head on. @now we did have a picture of @the deputy's car sent us to by @the hillsborough county @sheriff's office. @that car barely recognizable @after this collision. @the driver of the wrong-way @vehicle we are told died on the @keen this morning, and the @officer -- the deputy, rather, @inside his patrol car, he had @to be extricated. @the roof cut off of the car. @he was rushed to tampa general @hospital where he unfortunately @passed away. @now when we spoke to @hillsborough county sheriff
8:02 am
@were all very emotional. @this deputy was with the @hillsborough county sheriff's @office for over five years, and @he comes from a law enforcement @family. @we are not told the name of the @deputy or the wrong-way driver @just yet. @they are still working to @identify family members and @inform them before -- before @they let them know, but this we @are told is just a tragedy, and @felt so strongly by these @deputies here who, you know, on @a daily basis put their lives @on the line. @we are always thinking of them @wearing bullet-proof vests and @shootings and things like that, @but traffic accidents, @sometimes far more dangerous to @these officers and deputies, to @law enforcement than what you @might commonly expect. @>> we worry about getting shot. @we worry about all these other @things that go on in our @careers, but, you know, here is @an example right now that i @think it is the second or third @leading cause of death for law @enforcement are these traffic @crashes.
8:03 am
@have been avoided, that makes @it even worse. @>> reporter: as i mentioned @this crash occurred just before @3 a.m. this morning. @now police and sheriff deputy @now police and sheriff deputies @are still investigating the @crash. @still no word just yet on @whether or not alcohol play @been a factor. @as i mentioned very early on @this investigation. @so we will have more updates @throughout the day, but for @now, reporting live in brandon, @kelly cowan, fox 13 news. @back to you, guys. @>> walter: i still can't @believe when i look at that -- @that picture of what is left of @the deputy's cruiser. @>> anjuli: heartbreaking. @>> walter: something we will @continue to follow. @keep it right here for that and @many more. @ our weather headlines, @lindsay milbourne is in. @we are going up. @>> lindsay: a warm weekend. @events started with the grand @prix. @if you are headed out. @don't plan on the 0s but the @low 80s. @and a dry day today in st. @petersburg. @tomorrow gets a little more @dicey.

8:05 am
@off. @happened 5:00 this morning at @30th avenue east and 50th @street north. @tampa police say that area will @be shut down for several hours @while they investigate. @the bicyclist has @life-threatening injuries. @police are asking anyone who @was in that area early on this @morning who saw anything, to @call them and help them with @their investigation of tracking @down this hit-and-run vehicle. @ new this morning, st. pete @police arrest a man they say @showed up at a gas station with @ingredients to make meth. @around 10:30 @around 10:30, officers were @called to the wa-wa about a @trespasser. @when they got there they found @gregory lawrence with a bottle @-- with chemicals to make meth. @the area behind the store was @closed until the narcotics unit @could dispose of that potle. @-- of that bottle. @ of course the big national @story when it comes to politics @story when it comes to @politics. @donald trump force to cancel @his rally in chicago after @fights broke out among @supporters and protesters. @the trump campaign postponed @the rally to make sure that
8:06 am
@the phone. @craig, happy saturday to you. @>> walter: thanks for joining @us. what is going on, a fight @at the trump valley. @>>caller: hundreds of protest @>>caller: hundreds of @protesters representing @themselves as trump supporters @getting inside that event in @chicago. @once they got inside they @unveiled themselves and @protesters. @and with that -- keep in mind @we had rowdy events with donald @trump for some length of time. @trump was asked just during the @last debate about some of the @clashes that had pwrongen out, @some of the violence that had @-- broken out. @some of the violence that had @been and if his words were @responsible. @trump said he would hope not. @in the past he said if @protesters arrived we want to @punch one in the face and wind @up on a stretcher and trump @supporters took that and rolled @with them. @when you have hundreds of
8:07 am
@showing up in chicago they @began to clash with the trump @supporters and reached a point @where the trump campaign @decided for the sake of safety @that they just could not go @forward with that. @and then trump himself later @said that he felt that his @right to free speech was @infringed upon. @he is ultimately blame @he is ultimately blaming the @protesters. @the concern, of course, among @many other things is that one @large-scale protest like this @could lead to another and keep @in mind, we are still a long @florida. @something that bears a lot of @watching here in our state as @well. @>> walter: craig, is this is @thing? @are we going to see more of @this? @>>caller: it has been a thing. @you start playing -- the media @starts playing the protests and @feedback loop. @the danger is it could incite @other protesters. @it could anger trump supporters @and you are talking about @supporters that are very @frustrated about the direction @of this country even more. @i think the candidate himself, @donald trump, has a big role to
8:08 am
@supporters -- now -- how his @protesters respond not only for @the sake of calm at his events, @though you don't have future @clashes, but in something that @could have some bearing on the @results as well, because when @you are seeing clashes of that @magnitude play out on national @tv, that is something that can @drive voting behavior and cut @both ways on tuesday and beyond @both ways on tuesday and @beyond. @>> walter: craig, marco rubio @is in town. @he is speaking in largo i @believe today. @did i read an article correctly @that he is pulling for kasich @in kasich's home state of ohio @on tuesday? @call call this is a strategy @that is -- @>>caller: that is a strategy @that is being put out there. @the logic is that marco rubio @cannot win in the state of @ohio, therefore if someone @wants to vote for rubio in @ohio, vote for kasich instead @because he has a better chance @of beating trump and that way @off better chance of driving
8:09 am
@or a contested convention in @cleveland giving marco rubio. @that is an awful lot to ask of @voters. @don't vote for the person you @really want you have to vote @for someone else because we @have in nonaggression pact. @i don't know how far that will @go, and it is kind of a @tortured argument for rubio to @make. @and notice the camp did not @respond in kind. @thanks but no thanks. @our folks in florida who want @kasich, we want them to vote @for john kasich. @>> walter: craig a lot to get @to before tuesday. @what are we talking about for @the next show? @>>caller: money, power and @politics one on one interviews @lined up with marco rubio and @with bernie sanders. @we will interview the @candidates and drill in the @florida issues and talk @hurricane insurance, flood @insurance, the future of the @space program and much, much @more and have charlie ledufn @town and takes a tour through @swing country through the i-4 @corridor to break down the @issues.
