7:00 am
>> tail of two bridges this morning, the ben franklin, and now the delaware memorial
7:01 am
bridge. two traffic and weather tore trailers, make one on fire. bob kelly is all over this. but taking a look at the situation at the ben franklin right now, we'll get to that in just a second. >> should you put it all on ken tucky? seems to be two kinds of brackets, those going with the safe bet and those who think another team will win the big dance. we'll take closer look at the teams who could win it all. >> go november a go leopards. >> (movie clip). >> did you see clock boo-boo? wow season finale of empire was last night, it was awesome. >> what was your favorite part that far two hour episode. >> so many.
7:02 am
hard to pick two beck story, both involving bridge and tractor trailer. >> let's get to bob kelly first with an update on the bring. >> yes, let's begin, the first one, happened about 8:30 last night, when a tractor-trailer, coming into philadelphia, if we can take some of the video there, coming over the ben franklin in towards philadelphia, didn't make the sharp curve. anyone over the benny you know what i am talking becomes you come into philadelphia, do you have make the sharp right turn, around that lightning bolt. flipped over tractor-trailer, has remained that way, since last night at 8:30, it was filled with fruit, and they're in the process of hand-off loading that cargo at the moment. only two lanes open, coming into philadelphia. here's the live look, at our news van, that's on the scene, again, here is the tractor-trailer, obviously on its side. they're pulling off the cargo, it was stack up, there you go, there is the fruit that was on the tractor-trailer, they're transferring it over. so, all of this activity is right at the base of the ben
7:03 am
franklin, when you come into philadelphia. >> our camera will show the traffic peaking through, the emergency vehicles here, creeping into philadelphia show the jam coming into downtown philly, typically four lanes coming into philly, because that tractor-trailer damage in the concrete barrier, they can't get extra lane in there. so, only basically three lanes, right around here, they flip the light to red, try to push everybody over into two lanes. bottom line, when you come into philadelphia, it is down to two lanes here on the ben franklin. already stacked and packed from the jersey site coming on in. second problem developing now, skyfox is on the way. a tractor-trailer fire, approaching the delaware memorial bridge. on 295, it is the stretch of 295 between route nine and route 13.
7:04 am
coming up, traffic is shutdown right now, because of the tractor-trailer fire, that is somewhere here, between 295 and the approach to the delaware memorial bridge. so that's going to tie folks up. you have to go up 95, and come over the commodore barry, to avoid this situation. so problems on both the benny and delaware memorial bridge. steve keeley standing by live on the philly side of the ben franklin do you have anything else to add to the mess? >> how is this for promo? we have kelly, keeley, on kiwi. because that is the majority of the fruit on this truck that overturned, show we show you the truck. we are approaching 12 hours since this accident happened at 83 so the truck still on its side. the fruit, still in the truck, this fruit, made it all the way from china and gets to philly and that's when it
7:05 am
finally get switched. so kiwi jammed for traffic jammo today, bob, for your morning toast. you can see, the truck that they brought in and not much fruit on that truck couple fork lifts, still intact, and then beyond the truck, that they're loading fruit onto, you see that big arm, that red arm, one of the massive tow trucks that has cable attached to it, so once they get the load off the back of the trailer they'll try to right that trail or, the truck front part that far is still in the street. every time one of those overturns, you have got a fuel spill that needs to be cleaned up. the glass from the windows is all over the street. it is still a big mess here at the foot of the ben franklin bridge where the speed limit is supposed to be 20 a truck driver would see that, as we pan right, so he had plenty of visibility, even at light, because they have these big yellow arrows. so we will give them the benefit of the doubt. maybe have him tell us that
7:06 am
his brakes failed or something like, that that's why his truck overturned or his shift lifted. we're told from the drpa staff here the back up now going to rutgers university right past the toll boot, now, this back up happens every day anyway but the back up bad, because lanes squeezed from several down to couple just to get by. of course everybody has to slow dunn and look at this accident and ask us why it is still there 11 hours and counting later because they think the incredible hulk works for the drp a and can just pick it up with his left arm. we'll have fun with this all morning, because nobody was hurt here other than the morning rush hour. but the produce section is affecting two big bridges, and the morning rush, a real couple of jammos. by the way, toasted fruit down there at the delaware memorial bridge. >> major clean up on aisle
7:07 am
one. >> at least we know because of the weather, it is chilled fruit. >> truth, chilled kiwi. see that thing on the right side of the screen, that's the zipper machine, that is the real problem. because the truck is casino of out of the way. but the zipper which separates the lanes on the bridge is broken because the truck hit it. >> it stinks. here is the good news, folks, it will snow tomorrow. >> really? >> i know. full of light and joy and happiness. today seven out of ten. not milk and bread and eggs casino of storm, but you have your chance to do whatever you need to do for tomorrow. here is bus stop buddy. sixers cap on. they won last night. , 29 degrees outside, our favorite number, but, we don't like it when it is the temperature, because it means it is coal. sunrise off i shall at 7:06,
7:08 am
but now. >> it will be snow by the time it get here, because it is indeed so cold outside. we get to high of 46 degrees about sunny skies. it is a chilly thursday, and it is the last full day of winter. mike, alex? >> and it is going to feel like. >> who is your friend? >> he is with me this morning, there he is, he is going to be on fox fursday today. >> good boy. >> that dog standing right next to her leg as she does the weather. >> i told him to sit. sit. >> and he's been watching intentionally, sue. >> good boy. >> he must be worried because it is going to snow. >> that's right. and he knows he's got a good home, though. he was rescued from camden county animal shelter. we'll have women other animals from that shelter on fox fursday. >> welcome rufus. 7:08. >> philadelphia police are looking for the gunman who killed a man in cold blood wednesday morning, at a kingsessing laudromat. >> this surveillance video is crazy. it was released by the police of course, now, watch this.
7:09 am
jenny joyce has the video for you, quite graphic. here, jenny. >> we lost her there. let me tell you what happened. do we have it now? jenny? let me know. >> mike check. >> we got you now. jenny? >> police are calling this a brutal murder, and all assassination agents on 25 year old man, happened in february. just yesterday they did release this surveillance video. let's look at. that will see the shooter walk into the 53rd coin laudromat. >> he fires multiple shots, the victim, 25 year old eric norman, pronounced on scene all of this happened as other people were inside the laudromat at the time. you can see, one person try to exit, and another in the background. the suspect took off, police are hoping someone can recognize this shooter and help bring justice in this case. they say they are working with the community and they're also
7:10 am
working with the philadelphia water department. >> ex employee, or somebody just wearing a philadelphia water department jacket, but we are working with them, and they are working with us. >> shooter dieses scribed as man in his 20's, 30's, husky, and again, was sporting philadelphia water department jacket. police say he's armed and dangerous, and they say, as we mentioned before, they can't figure out a motive in this case because the victim a 25 year old family man, he's a stay at home dad to young child and he's married. there is a $20,000 reward in this case, you can call in anonymous tip to 215-686-tips. >> when did this happen? happened yesterday at 11:00? >> no, it happened on february 19th. >> yesterday they released this surveillance video.
7:11 am
>> because they are trying to find him. i was confused by the two/19. >> still out there. so happened february the 19th. okay. >> still out there seven. >> hillary clinton will be in the guard earn state, former secretary every state will give speech about summer camp at the atlantic city convention center around noon. >> just call her presidential hopeful. boy, do you have information we know? she is not announced. >> true. i think everyone's thinking schedule to address a crowd of 3,000 during the american cancer association, event the largest gathering of camp professionals in the world. >> wow. >> right there in new jersey. >> seems to be no love lost between president obama, this is after the president is one of the only leaders to not personally congratulate netanyahu on his next political term. >> big victory over there in israelment many us allies have reached out to the re-elected prime minister, obama inned minute station got around to
7:12 am
acknowledging netanyahu's win yesterday. secretary of state john kerry not the president on the telephone, to send the white house's regards, could it be because he spoke to congress snubbing the president? >> called this morning to congratulate him, ongoing government more makes process, they did not discuss substantive issues. not going to characterize the tone of the call. >> the white house says the president will phone the israeli prime minister soon. >> the conversation could go south since netanyahu's decision to turn against palestine will force the us to re-think it approach to future peace talks. goes back to when benjamin netanyahu two weeks before the election over there, did this. came and spoke to our congress. >> all right, 7:12, let's get another check on what's happening with the ben franklin bridge, how it is affecting traffic.
7:13 am
>> well, yes. this is live look at the tractor-trailer fire here, so this, looking at the first time, just as you are at home, this is live look from skyfox of the approach to the delaware memorial bridge, this tractor-trailer fire here there is all happened within the last 30 minute or so. this is on the delaware side of the bridge. so this is what technically would be i-295 heading toward the delaware memorial bridge. you can see, they only have what would have been that left shoulder open. but looks like they got everything stopped. look, firetrucks came from both brakes cents here to put out the fire. white smoke is good. but obviously the truck is damaged. go ahead, skyfox. look at the skidmarks here. >> i know. >> wonder if that was a result after accident. >> and looks like the trailer is on fire. a loft times the truck. >> whatever that cashing so in the back. we mentioned he was caring fruit. obviously that fruit is in boxes. so that's pretty flammable. but look at the back up here. >> oh, my gosh. >> this is 295 leaving
7:14 am
delaware, and this is the ramps, the approach to what would be the delaware memorial bridge. okay? and then there is your truck fire. and looks like they have all traffic stopped right here, they were allowing that left shoulder to get on through. obviously the damage is done here. i wouldn't if there was an accident of some sort that then caused this truck fire, you see the skidmarks all over the roadway, amazing, thank goodness dealing with, well, no, look at the temps, 29 degrees, all of this watt letter get iced over pretty quickly. so that's the deal from skyfox, on the delaware memorial bridge. going to the maps, if we could for a second. gee to this one. live look at the other tractor-trailer accident. this one happened last night, at around 8:30, when a truck coming over the ben franklin bridge, going little too fast around that curve, right at the lightning bolt here, where you begin your trip into center city. flipped over on it side not only causing traffic incident it, damage in the concrete barrier. see the barriers right here?
7:15 am
that's what we call the zipper. each one every these cement blocks are connected like a zipper. many the machine picks up the barrier, moves it over, that's how we go from four lanes to three lanes. there is the green machine. the barrier system piece of equipment. it is not able to pick up the concrete barrier and give us a extra lane coming into philadelphia. so not only do we have all of the activity, look at this guy, standing there with his hands in his pocket. been out there since last night at around 8:30, you think that they would be moving little faster, to try to just get this whole mess cleaned up here, because it is causing a major jam if we can go to our live traffic camera here, this is 422, on that eastbound side, but the ben franklin bridge stack and packed here coming in to downtown philadelphia where there is only two lanes open as you get to the base of that ben franklin bridge. so if you are coming in from new jersey, i would use the betsy ross, maybe use the walt whitman bridge, as the
7:16 am
alternate. again, that's also going to tie up traffic along i-95 as well through the morning rush hour. so we got problems on the ben franklin, coming into philadelphia, problems on the delaware memorial bridge, coming in to new jersey, i would call it a personal day. >> i would too. >> you know what? it is still early in the year. we can use up a personal day. we will work an extra holiday to make up for it. >> the walt whitman bridge feeling -- >> lonely. >> don't say that, then something might happen. >> maybe they should awe lay free tolls. >> open it up. >> free ride. and a cupcake. >> and a cupcake. >> we rule the world. it can all be fixed. >> no kiwi. >> now i'm craving fruit salad. why is that? fruit cocktail? fruit salad? i remember the wiggles song, too. winter weather advisory in effect for tomorrow. it is to start at 6:00 in the morning, goes until 8:00 at night for all of the count that's you see here, highlighted, these are the counties where we expect snow. that's right, tomorrow is the first day of spring, and this
7:17 am
rain, by the time it gets up here, where it is colder, will be in the form of snow, for many of us, not all of us, but as we look at this particular computer model, this is the north american modem, it is moving in, by 7:00, 8:00 in the morning, into the philadelphia area, snow for a the love us, and then, down to the south, maybe wintery mix or some rain. then the rain line moves a little further north, but i think for philadelphia, for good portion of tomorrow, during the rest of the afternoon, and even into the evening, we will stay as snow, maybe changing over to little bit of sleet before the whole thing exits in the overnight hours friday night, into saturday. then, we are dry for the rest of the weekend. but it is going to be very tricky travel tomorrow. slushy one to 3 inches, accumulation possible, with most of us in the metro area, then to the south, it is a coating to inch, to the north, it is welcome news for the poconos, they can extend their season, their spring skiing season even more. 29 degrees, in philadelphia right now, 18 in mount pocono, trenton, has 22, and so does
7:18 am
millville, new jersey, 27 degrees in wilmington. winds are not nearly the factor that they were yesterday at this time. so, winds have calmed down quite a bit. that's good thing. but will still be colder than average, over the past seven days, we sure had our ups and downs. we got up to 68 degrees on saint patrick's day, but only 45 yesterday. and i think we're only in the mid 40's again today, even colder tomorrow, with the wintery mix, around, and saturday, it is better, but only for a day will are we back to the 50's, cold air comes back on sunday, monday, and tuesday, of next week. so, first day of spring, guys, spring snow, isn't it lovely? >> when does spring start, 6:00 tomorrow afternoon? >> 6:45 in the evening. >> so will the snow be gone by 6:45? >> oh, no. i don't think so. most of it will be. but it could be tapering. >> still don't want to start spring with snow.
7:19 am
>> so the season finale of empire was last night, boy did it have some surprises. >> diehard fans, i don't think anybody was disappointed not that i saw, sue. >> i don't think so. >> we do have some spoiler alerts here. >> warning. >> we'll show you. okay? if you haven't seen it. here it is. >> (movie clip). >> you think cookie ... >> yikes. >> so was he hallucinating? >> yes, because under medication, he confesses to murdering bunji, that's cookie's cousin. and he's thinking that bungees sitting there on the bed. and he's hal lewes mating. too bad for him. >> cookie was listen. >> yes. >> so that was just one of the parts. some people talking about when jamal and lucious did the duet in the old --
7:20 am
>> good. >> that was great. then everyone is talking about the fight between cookie and boo-boo kitty. >> and i didn't even see that coming. she was cool. >> came out of no where. >> flipped over, coffee table, oh,. >> and the music was so good. i said i know they'll have found track out. two of my favorite songs on, there but they should do another cd just with the songs on the finale, because all of them so great. >> yes. >> really great. >> and i'm surprised how the quality of the music is really, really, because do you have wrote some of the songs, like ya. >> so of course we had our watch party last night, but look at this, when i got there, take a look at this line. >> you shot this? >> yes, i'm saying high to everybody, waiting out in the cold. >> hey! >> south street. >> went around the block. >> oh, my goodness. >> yes. so, we had a great turn out. sue came out. quincy was there. bill anderson, lauren johnson, great time. >> my oily face with a there. >> we were all hot, so many people. but we were having a good time, dj, playing some tunes

7:24 am
7:25 am
>> morning, every, updating breaking news, looking live from skyfox, over the scene of this tractor-trailer fire. on the approach to the delaware memorial bridge along 295. see firefighters pouring water onto what looks like burned fruit. and the boxes used to package the fruit product. so that we can fully get the fire, you got the smoke there, obviously, still a concern for the firefighters. but, more are concern for the traffic jam right now. this is the 295 northbound ramps to the delaware memorial bridge. so anyone leaving delaware right now, heading for new jersey, this is what is ahead of you herement and this happened about a half hour ago. >> were allowing the left shoulder to get by here. see if skyfox can show me. yep, looks like the far left shoulder. but look at that, we tip he
7:26 am
cannily have four lanes. we only have the left shoulder open. can you say jammo? >> jammo. >> all right, headed into new jersey, now that's problem number one. next problem, which also involves a tractor-trailer, this one, overturned, on the ben franklin bridge coming into philadelphia. anyone who typically uses the benny, come into philly, make that sharp right curve, right here, at the lightning bolt. well, obviously, the road went to the right, the truck went to the left it, has been laying on its side since about 8:30 last night, also filled with fruit, and they've been hand-off loading the cargo, and then here is the big zipper machine, as that truck goes by, this machine here is what is used to move the concrete barriers live traffic camera, shows the back up on the ben franklin, bumper to bumper, typically four lanes,
7:27 am
only have three right now then squeezes down it two. so jammo, on both the delaware memorial, and the ben franklin bridge. but let's go up to the news room, where jen has an update on last night's empire. >> it was awful a mess, but completely different casino every mess, bob. here is the situation. i want to tell people we're going to be doing spoilers all morning long, because we're asking people what were your favorite most shocking events. so much to talk about. tweet us, facebook us, we want to hear from you guys. yeah, i'm married. does it matter?
7:28 am
you'd do that for me?
7:29 am
really? yeah, i'd like that. who are you talking to? uh, it's jake from state farm. sounds like a really good deal. jake from state farm at three in the morning. who is this? it's jake from state farm. what are you wearing, jake from state farm? [ jake ] uh... khakis. she sounds hideous. well she's a guy, so... [ male announcer ] another reason more people stay with state farm. get to a better state. ♪
7:30 am
big morning, we have two tractor-trailer accident, snow on the way. >> let's start with the traffic. >> yep, back to you. >> all right, so, let's get weather done and then bob will tell you which roads, which bridges, to avoid, and what fruit you should be eating this morning, as well. we've got all of the advice for you. here is bus stop buddy, sixers cap, shades out, there because the sun is up. make sure you're warm, cooler than it is supposed to be for this time in march. but still going to give you seven out of ten, because today expecting sunshine, tomorrow, not so much. there are some clouds mixed in, as you can see. it is 29 degrees, right now, there is some rain down to our south. that will will be snow by
7:31 am
tomorrow. but today, dry, sunny skies, and chilly temperatures. highs in the mid 40's. there is your thursday forecast, we will time out this snow for you, the almost spring snow that's arriving, probably by this time tomorrow morning, at least for some. bob kelly? >> sue, problems on two of our major bridges right now. looking live, from skyfox, over the scene, of this truck fire on the delaware memorial bridge. this is the ramps from 295 to the approach of the delaware memorial bridge. anyone leaving delaware into new jersey this is the scene on the approach to the mid-span of that delaware memorial bridge. this tractor-trailer caught fire, somebody sent me a message that said maybe his brakes lock up. which then caused the fire. but the truck was caring fruit. of course, that fruit was pack in cardboard boxes, and that's probably what ignited the flames here, they had a back hoe casino of moving the fruit out of the truck, in order to get more water on it, to put the flames out.
7:32 am
so looks like the fire itself is done with, but take a look at the mess though it has caused for trafficment typically four lanes leaving delaware, headed in new jersey, at this hour, and they only have the far two left shoulders open. and we are backed up for miles. if we can go to my maps here for a second, i'll show you the spot. >> right here approaching the delaware memorial grudge, leaving delaware i would head north up through wilmington and you can connect into new jersey, using the commodore barry bridge. live look at the ben franklin bridge, back up from the toll plaza, all the way into philadelphia. because after tractor-trailer that overturned last night about 8:30. live camera on the scene, right at the base as you come into philadelphia, and you make that sharp turn around the lightning bolt, that tractor-trailer, flipped over on it side.
7:33 am
>> since 8:30 last night, going on 11 hours, they have been hand off loading the cargo, and that has only two lanes available, at the base of the bridge. now, that truck damaged the concrete barrier machine, the zipper machine, and we typically have four lanes available coming into philadelphia. that zipper machine, at around 5:00 o'clock, usually goes across, and adds an extra lane for the morning rush hour. so like a double whammie here, we only have three lanes coming into philly, two lanes when you get to the base of the bridge, so instead of the ben franklin bridge this morning, your best bet, the walt whitman bridge or the betsy ross bridge. and that has folks using that option but now also causing jams on i-95, that some of those folks are not used to. and i know steve keeley, has been standing by live, all morning long, giving us an update curbside. steve, i stopped there this morning, and talk to those guys, when i came in, and i saw that mess there, looks
7:34 am
like it is taking them long while to get this cleaned up. >> bob, i'm sure you will say to yourself i've seen everything there is to see in the traffic business. and i got a new one for you today. state lawmakers on both sides of the river, pay attention to this one. first no talking on cell phone laws, then we had the no texts on cell phone laws. here's a new one, weaver people coming from jersey slowing down and taking pictures while they're driving past this. so don't be surprised if you have a fender bender here to add to everything else. i can't believe it. i don't mean one, now, i know i'm over there ticking pictures but i'm on the sidewalk safely away from everything. and they are taking pictures of us, pictures of the accident, and i guess they're going to be sending these pictures this in, if you see rear view mirrors, driver probably won't want to admit. that will but bobby can't tell you why it is taking so
7:35 am
long. now takes a long time to right one every these trucks. but see not much kiwi fruits, you can see boxes, then cellophane wrapping around the boxes in this righted truck that they brought in. then they have a dumpster on the other side of the zipper truck, for all of the fruit that was smashed. by the way, in new zealand, alex, mike, i don't know if you're wear of this, they don't call it kiki there, because they have the kiki bird, it is the chinese goose berry. so there is little more knowledge on you there. so mike, next time you're you send your vallet out for your morning fruit round up. send them for chinese gooseberries. >> so in the 12th hour, second day of this, how about the poor drpa just as almost wrapping up the investigation of the overturned gas tanker truck, on the other side of the betsy ross bridge, then they got second investigation about why this happened, and they have their suspicions, again, speed a factor in this, supposed to slow down to 20.
7:36 am
and this big metal shiny silver piece of art isn't enough of a warning that you're facing something that you have to turn around, then they have yellow arrow signs, 24 hours a day, that were right next that you can't see. you have some warnings that you're at the end of this bridge and you're making hard right to slow down. what this guy did was he hit the concrete mobile barrier little bit, moved, that i don't know, bob, that he hit the zipper truck, we have to confirm that. because that is sitting there. it doesn't appear to be damaged to me. when i looked at pictures of this from the air from our chopper, this truck settled after it hit the median it, didn't really move the median much, so trying to make the turn, but it overturned at the end of the last concrete barricade. so zipper truck may be in fact totally intact and usable once they can clear this. so, that will be good news. that will help them shift the lanes once again if it is. but, the back up, all the way past the toll plaza now, going down the admiral wilson boulevard, and that is a back
7:37 am
up every day as it is, alex, mike, but it will be made specially worse today, because fewer people going over here, to get to the vine st. expressway. so big mess again here all porn the return hour for sure. >> it looks like the tractor-trailer may have hipped the zip at the self and not the zipper truck. i think it hit the tip of the zipper. >> yes, that's what it did, it hit some of the zipper median, bumped them out. if you look at the file tape from the skyfox shots last night, after this happened at 8:30 see the zipper, meaning, it has a little bump, not as much damage you would think, because these things are mobile to begin with bye did almost make that turn. >> stay on it, 7:37. i know a loft you watched empire last night watch was your favorite moment? most shocking moment? let us know. use the hashtag. >> had a hashtag fox 29. jenn fred will have all of the >> had a hashtag fox 29. jenn fred will have all of the

7:46 am
>> good morning, update g breaking news, one of two situations we're looking at. looking live from skyfox, over the scene, of this truck fire, tractor-trailer fire, on the ramps from 295 to the delaware
7:47 am
memorial bridge, as the sun begins to rise, we can see, we're back up for miles here. this is impacting everyone, leaving delaware headed up and over the delaware memorial bridge into new jersey, there is what's left of this tractor trail their was caring fruit this morning when it caught fire, they got back hoe here, pulling the cargo out, and they were continuing to pour water on it, looks like they got that job done. but, even though that's a mess, that we have to clean up, there is only the left shoulder getting on by. and we typically have four lanes leaving delaware, heading into new jersey. >> best bet, stay clear, head north 95 through wilmington, jump many over the commodore barry bridge next problem, ben franklin bridge, overturned
7:48 am
tractor-trailer. >> this happened last night about 8:30, right at the approach to the philly side, where the sharp curve comes no play. truck flipped over. also caring fruit this morning, we go to the live camera, on the scene. the clean up continues here. so we have two problems. we have the accident, and then we have this green zipper machine that's not able to give us a extra lane on the ben franklin bridge. moves concrete barriers to go from three lanes to four, so, right now, we're stuck with only three lanes into philadelphia, at the base, where the clean is up ongoing, there is only two lanes open. so pa parking lot from the new jersey side up and over the ben franklin my philadelphia. if you typically use the ben franklin franklin bridge, forget about it, use route 130, to either go north to the betsy ross, or south down to
7:49 am
the walt whitman bridge factor in some extra time, pick one, doesn't matter, you have the betsy or the walt whitman bridge those two options also causing delays on i-95, coming into philadelphia. so, just been a mess, sue, on both of the bridges, but you have a mess on your way tomorrow morning. >> that's right. we have snow in the forecast for friday. and the winter weather advisory list already up from the national weather service starting 6:00 a.m., going until 8:00 at night. will be all day event tomorrow. there is the rain. there is quite a bit of it. by the time it gets here and it is colder it is in the form of snow. temperatures right now, 29 degrees in philadelphia. but it is going to get to only 46. now the normal high is in the lower 50's, so, it is colder than average and still winter. last full day of winter. it will still be winter when the snow begins tomorrow. only going get to high of 35. so spring starts at 6:45 in the evening. hopefully the snow will be out of here by then.
7:50 am
we can get started on spring, high temperature of 54 degrees grew degrees tomorrow. then colder again, starting on sunday, so, last gasp of winter and it is really going to look like it, mike, aling. >> thank you. i don't know if you realize it or not, but finale of empire was last night. >> i think they really. ized it. >> everyone still talking about it, so many big moments, but jen, i have to tell you, the one moment they're sticking out in my mind, no one really talking about that one. >> you know. >> my doctor told me -- >> oh, oh. >> ya, okay, so all morning long, already been asking people to tell us what they think is their most shocking part of empire. use the #fox29goodday. for me, it was the same thing as jersey dray. hello, jersey dray, yes, it is hakeem sleeping with boo-boo kitty. but it is so sexy and naughty and we can't show it on morning tv. so, we can't show. that will but for me again that was my number three.
7:51 am
so of course i have to have a number, another number three. lucious going to jail. heart and fear. those were the two key elements empire co-creator lee daniels felt. first season finale, absolutely had to have. here you have it. lucious might not be dying. oh, is that a spoiler? but he will spend some time in jail. waist busted, arrested for bunji's murder, everyone thinks it is cookie who turned him in. da, da, da, speaking of cookie >> ♪ >> it is over. >> cookie tried to kill
7:52 am
lucious. but it did not work. because lucious will not die. okay, so, for me, the number one shocker in three words from an amazing empire headline, three, two, one, lucious ain't dying. >> yesterday a miracle happened. my doctor told me i don't have als. i was misdiagnosed. what i got is serious, but it is not fatal. >> you're not dying. >> i've been given a second chance at life. >> of course he has. it is a soap opera. the only thing that couldn't have happened, like there should be three babies, right? of course he's not dying. but again, i do believe one of the big moments, but too dirty, too naught. >> i that's our vote for number one. you know of course watching it with haak people's family, so awkward, his mother sitting
7:53 am
next to us, watching that scene, go down, it was like oh, everybody was screaming and in shock. >> so i'll say it again, too dirl i -- dirty for tv in the morning. >> naughty scene for sure. we will get into the fisticuffers, because there were couple of fight scenes, very well shot. >> that one, too. >> and somebody's no longer on the show. if you get what i mean. okay. we will take it to a whole different level here, serious topic. doctor mike says there is a certain profession where most people commit suicide because they have this job, because they're depressed. what, let's see, top five. boy this is depressing, top five suicide related occupations.
7:54 am
7:55 am
7:56 am
>> four minutes before 8:00. tough subject. we saw new research, workplace suicide on the rise in this
7:57 am
country. which professions are the highest risk for suicide? >> and women who get more rest now are better lovers later. >> oh, well let's hurry up and get to that one, doctor mike. okay, what workplace suicide, why do you think that's on the rise? >> authorities say. >> well, it started after the economic down turn in 2008. and so, a lot of people think that the economy had a lot to do with it. some people think that that led to 10,000 deaths by suicide. just the economy. but there are other reasons. some people think that this is on the rise, because people that die by suicide want to protect their families. they don't want to do it at home. so they protect their families, by doing it at work. so, that they don't have to see the whole situation. >> what type of jobs are we talking about? >> let's take a look. we have a list here. people that are in law enforcement. why? they have access to weapons. so accessible of means to die
7:58 am
by suicide are major cause of this. and -- >> stress, law enforcement, sold earnings, they've seen so much, all of the stress they have? >> farmers, believe it or not, because of the social isolation. >> yes, yes. >> automotive repair people. now why them? we think it might have to do to exposure solvents, which can lead to depression over long periods every time. >> you know, you talk about the farmers real quickly here, you know they have a dating website for farmers now. not kidding. >> that's great. and -- >> manure. com? >> listen. com for everything. truck drivers, businessman jester, even landscapers, and then of course doctors, healthcare providers. they have access to medications. and it is becoming a bigger, bigger problem. >> surprise me, because usually, mine, for the longest time it was dentists, lawyers, and lawyers aren't even on the list there. >> yes. the key here is if you are
7:59 am
depressed, if you notice someone, that's depressed or not acting right, talk to them. i do some work with the american foundation for suicide prevention out of the darkness walk, everyone needs to be part of this. because everyone has been touched by someone who has died by suicide. very, very important. >> let's get into this other thing. ladies? you really do need to get your sleep. you know what i mean? get all rested up for the weekend, because ... >> increases your low beat owe >> oh? >> now, men have had viagra. if someone is able to come up with a female lobito cure, i will be out of here and on an islands. >> oh, all we need to do is sleep? just get some rest? >> this is simple. now, i can tell you, my wife, elizabeth, who i love; chronically sleep deprived. we have two children whom i love.
8:00 am
>> so what are you saying, doctor mike? >> well. >> is that why you work on weekends so much? what sells there to do? >> oh, my gosh. >> i still don't know -- >> i don't know what she gets out of being married to me. >> you're a sweet guy. >> the bottom line, if you're out there, and you're struggling with lobito, get sleep, rest it, doesn't have to be you're just in the bedroom. you get rest, and you're ready to go. >> geez. >> yes. >> i combine the two, women who are with me, they normally fall asleep during -- >> oh, my goodness. >> good to see you. >> i love you, and i love you. >> love you. >> say hello to your wife if you ever see her again. good day, it is thursday, march the 19th, 2015, here we go. >> twelve hours and counting at the ben franklin bridge, tractor-trailer loaded when kiwi last night in prime time just after 8:00 overturned, and mike, look at this, it is
8:01 am
like picking up a wet tissue. you can see a bend in the trail or, as they try to right it. and it doesn't look too -- not exactly armored car, looks more like backyard shed. >> doing just what bob says don't do. forget the truck. fix that zipper. >> all right, more on that in just a second. plus, we talked about ashley judd yesterday. well, she not stopping. not over for ashley. >> people bullying her on twitter, is that possible? could you get arrested for attacking somebody on social media? we'll talk about it. >> and national poison prevention week. these laundry pods have accidentally poisoned thousands of children, but what other items around the house pose a racing? the top tips for keeping you and your kids safe. >> and, it is the nine-point touchdown. will nine-point touchdown come to the nfl? >> colt want to change the story in ffl football.
8:02 am
>> wow. >> how would you -- you would score nine points, basically, with one touchdown. and then some maneuvering for the extra point. pretty impressive touchdown. >> 50-yard kick. >> it will never happen. we'll explain it. >> let's talk about it. >> snow on the way tomorrow. >> that's right. traffic on the way right now. >> just a mess all morning long, on two of our major bridge, first of all, a truck fire, on the delaware memorial bridge, it is on the ramps from 295, leaving delaware, headed into new jersey, happened about an hour or so ago. and it is right at the approach to the delaware memorial bridge. so, anyone leaving delaware, 95, a parking lot, to approach route nine, then the ramps for 295 and did the well wear memorial bridge, only left shoulder open see the censors
8:03 am
down to 14 miles an hour. leaving delaware, and tim i cannily head for the delaware memorial bridge, value to go up 95, and use the commodore barry bridge. second problem, steve just mentioned, happened last night about 830, tractor-trailer coming over the ben franklin bridge, comes to the bottom of the ramp, sharp curve to the right, the trailer flips over on it side, and that is where it has been sitting since 8:30 last night. it was loaded with fruit, they've been hand off-loading the cargo, but that accident damaged this concrete barrier. that's zipper barrier that typically gets moved over. one lane, to give us four lanes coming into philadelphia. so typically for morning rush hour, there are four lanes into philadelphia on the ben franklin. tip he cannily stacked and pack. we're down to three lanes, here on the bridge, and then when we get into philadelphia, as they try to upright and clean up that tractor-trailer, we go down to two lanes. if we could take our live
8:04 am
camera, steve's been there at the base of the bridge, all morning long, i actually stopped there, this morning, right where steve is reporting from, and walked across and talk to these guys to try to get a handle on what the situation was, and you can see them here, they're still brink that cargo up. they should just hold that tractor-trailer offer to the side. it is junk right now. no sense in salvaging it. and get an extra lane open because right now over half hour delay coming over the ben franklin bridge. if you are leaving the house usually use the benny we have to go for the detour, either the be is he or the walt whitman bridge will get new philadelphia, and then you can connect with i-95 from there. steve, i know you've been stand interesting, watching trying to up right this truck here, looks like it is going to split in two once they try to get it up on its side. >> , how flimsy trailers are,.
8:05 am
>> thin skin whatever is around there, when the loads shift, they can sometimes even break through and that's why when they lift it like this you can see, casino of it bending from the middle there, and there was a lot of fruit underneath t bob look at the back of the truck. , they had wooden pal end they just put in there. but most of it is a in a dumpster other side of the big zipper vehicle here that luckily was safely out of the way here on the new jersey side, going into new jersey, so, it was not hit. and only one vehicle involved. that was the other fortunate thing. nobody else got hurt by this. and the truck driver is okay, as well. but as they lift this, they see all of the stuff on the gown. again you have always got a fuel spill and glass. so big clean up there at the foot of the base. you can hear all of the reverse lights on the bobcats, the forks lifts, as these guys try to figure out the the safest way to get this out of herement looks like they are resting it back down now.
8:06 am
you can now see a guy walking on top of the truck, so big problems out here, even just trying get this thing right sided. everyone wondering why it is taking so long. well, these guys don't want to hear that, because there is no strong man out here who can just twist it up with a flick of the wrist. so, big problems out here. people hopefully are watching bob kelly and knowing not to take this way in. but the people that are going by here, even into new jersey, are stopping to take pictures and rubber neck, and even almost cause near misses here, because you have got all of these people merging together as well. so, nothing but trouble this morning in the morning rush hour traffic. after you get through today, well, tomorrow, it will be all rain, slush, and snow, to deal with. so, we'll be looking forward to the weekend a whole lot for those every house commute, especially from new jersey into philly. >> oh, let's get that thing out of thereby tomorrow morning, sue, seriously. >> or maybe kiwi flavored ice cream. >> slush. >> well, wow, you are recipe woman! that's fabulous, very creative, too.

8:10 am
so predictable and so unsatisfying? what about pulling up a chair, a stool, a beanbag, and actually tasting our food. we are a creamy cheese that still believes in the beauty of a knife, in the elegant swipe of a . . . swipe. of course, that doesn't mean you can't dunk us or scoop us up. enjoy every single, sol-i-tar-y bite. the laughing cow. reinvent snacking. feels like each day liviis a game of chance.aine i wanted to put the odds in my favor. so my doctor told me about botox® an fda-approved treatment that significantly reduces headache days for adults with chronic migraine. 15 or more headache days a month, each lasting 4 hours or more. it's proven to actually prevent headache days.

by switching to progressive. that was me, mom. [ laugh ] i thought you said, "that was me, mom." [ laughter ] >> updating breaking news, two tractor-trailer problems causing delays all on two of our area bridges. here's video, from skyfox, over the scene of this tractor-trailer, fire. on the approach to the delaware memorial bridge. leaving delaware, heading into new jersey, this is the scene on the upside of the delaware
8:13 am
memorial bridge. as you can see, only two what would be the left lane and the left shoulder getting on by, and we are back up for miles here from i-95 in mid delaware, all the way up to the approach of the delaware memorial bridge. if you typically head this way, maybe route 13, route nine, route two, that will get you up into wilmington, and i would use the commodore barry bridge, as your alternate. the second problem has been the ben franklin bridge. this happened last night around 83 tractor-trailer coming into philadelphia, right at the sharp right curve there, at the lightning bolt, didn't make the curve, flipped over on it side, and that tractor-trailer, also, caring fruit, but there is still in the process of off load that cargo and trying to upright that truck. but the accident, damaged the concrete barrier. we call that the zipper. and that's typically able to be moved left and right, to give us a extra lane during the morning rush hour.
8:14 am
>> so tuck with three lanes, sardines, coming up and over the ben franklin bridge. this is up and over the span coming into downtown philly. to the live news van, on the scene, steve ' been there all morning long, where they've been off loading the cargo. >> at this point, just push it out of the way. and get an extra lane in there. no way to salvage that. twenty-two lanes at the base of the bridge come nothing philadelphia. causing major back up. ben franklin, one of the heavy use, wove to go to the betsy or the walt whitman to avoid a delay, and this isn't something that's going to get clean up here in the next hour our so. it is taking them 12 ours and not even halfway there yet. so, this could be all the way through the midday. so even if you have plans for
8:15 am
meeting maybe coming in philly, later on this morning, you want to make sure you remind yourself little sticky tab there on the dashboard to use the walt whitman bridge or the betsy ross. once through this morning rush hour, tomorrow, sue, looks like we will have mother mess after different kind on our hands. >> it is true, bob kelly. winter weather advisory went out today for tomorrow starts at 6:00 goes until 8:00 p.m. >> goes until 8:00 p.m. for all of the counties that you see highlighted there. here's the leading edge of the precipitation. it is down in west virginia, western part of virginia north carolina, by about 7:00, 8:00 we see it spreading into our area. it will be cold. so it will be snow. and there will be rain to the south of it. then inbetween, is that area of sleet and/or freezing rain. moves in, it is snowing in philadelphia, by 10:00.
8:16 am
north and west of the city, it is starting to accumulate by 1:00 in the afternoon, by 4:00 in the afternoon still seeing some areas of maybe moderate to heavy snow, at times, and but, again, it is not going to be with us long enough to pile up whole lot. >> just have to see the temperatures at that point in time. so that's the timing of the storm for tomorrow. it does get better, and drier, alex, mike, over the weekend. >> dryer, warmer,. >> waiting for. that will 8:16, actress ashley judd said pressing charges against what she says twitter trolls. sexually harassed her on twitter. earlier this week we showed judd accidentally kissing dixon the lips, well, accidentally. >> accidentally? >> she probably wishes it was. well, judd said the amount of gender violence she received since then has been extraordinary, plus also tweeted about arkansas saying they were playing dirty, during the game. >> she is big kentucky wildcats basketball fan. yet she really went after the arkansas player saying they
8:17 am
were playing dirty. and that started this war on twitter. >> it did start the war, right. >> they started bullying her saying real nasty stuff, sexual stuff. can you press charges against somebody who is bullying you? >> well, you can press charges against anybody, the point is, you know, can they carry through on those charges and actually get somebody convicted? commit ago crime? insult are not actionable. you can go on the internet see insult, running rampid, right? threats are actionable. so if there is a direct threat against somebody, and they put it on the internet, then i would say it is actionable. >> ashley i'll kill you. >> yes. nobody said i'll kill you. she reports that to police. that would be actionable. but insults are not the police -- >> even if they're saying as a woman in some of the things pretty degrading? >> it can be degrading, as i said, insults, having car comments, viral comments not actionable. >> the police won't go after those people. >> how would you track them down? >> curt schilling did that. curt schilling went on the internet and congratulated his daughter forgetting into college, so for the. there were then vial comments
8:18 am
about his daughter. he went after them. you know what did he he? took screen shot of the vial comment, tracked down who these guys were then re tweeted it, the two guys that made those vial comment, one was suspended from college, the other fired, he worked for the yankees, curt schilling did the right thing. everybody said he went into dad mode. he did a pro-active way of going after these people. >> that seems like the difficult part, trying to find, can you like subpoena, private twitter pages? >> i don't think he had much after problem finding out. i don't think he spent much time finding out. >> he is a public figure. he probably had resource toss do it. >> that's the way to go to get the police involved. >> yes, because the police ultimately, do we want our police chasing after internet thugs, or do you want them protecting us from robbers and burglars and everybody else? i mean, you know, police only have so much time spending their money, only so many resources you can devote toward police. >> penn state, the fraternity in trouble there. >> big trouble. >> pictures of passed out girls, no clothes on, things like. that will they took it down, facebook account, but then put another one up doing the same

8:20 am
at that point in time. >> unreal. >> have to be careful. >> thank up, my man. i know our football fan. listen to this. >> nine-point touchdown. if the an end list colts have their way, me may. may have nine-point touchdowns. we'll explain how you can get touchdowns. we'll explain how you can get those
