6:02 am
watched this accident happen from his rear view main. there was a minor two-car accident they were responding to when a tractor available traveled across several lanes and hit into that fire truck injuring five firefighters. even still, my colleague tells us that that injured firefighter helped each other await for help to arrive. >> i heard a bang. i electrical in the mirror, i see is a tractor trailer going across the roadway taking up all three lanes of 95. and all of a sudden, a fire truck next to me, he came past me. i knew that bang i heard was the tractor trailer that hit the back of the fire truck. and i pulled over. the firemen got out. they looked a little dazed. the one in the backseat looked like he was more dazed than the other ones were. they took him out, they put him on the ground. and they walked back to the tractor trailer. i noticed another car on the
6:03 am
left side of the road was now in the far right in front of the tractor trailer. the tractor trailer was up against the wall. i mean, it was chaotic out here. it was a really eerie feeling. >> reporter: and those injured firefighters were transported to hahnemann hospital this morning. i put in calls to see how they're doing right now. as soon as i get more information, i'll be sure to let you know. i do want to get to j.essica boyington. right now, the police are doing something on i-95 to relieve the congestion. >> right. thank you, pamela. we have a live shot in front of the accident scene, they are allowing some lanes through. this just began i would say five or six minutes ago. they're not seeing any relief in delays but at least people under the penn's landing tunnel, you can see are starting to move by
6:04 am
the scene with one car trickling by at the time. of course, what they're doing, creating that left lane passageway so everybody can get by. additionally, they're allowing that callowhill exit to be opened. one lane or so is getting by at the time. right now, huge delay all the way backed up. i would get off the betsy ross bridge. it seems like the betsy ross area is right before where we see some of that backup. again, it's a parking lot-type of backup. it's not moving. right now, you see a few cars trickling through. if you want to get there, you can get to center city that way, hop on 95. and that's going to take you a while nay. the vine street expressway, we're starting to see delays there because that traffic is being diverted there. the schuylkill expressway, a
6:05 am
great alternate. you can stack up and head to 95 also the schuylkill expressway eastbound 95 southbound, there's an accident that way as well. >> thanks for that, jess. appreciate that information. this is a breaking story that we've been staying on top of for you all morning long. stay with nbc10. check the nbc10 app. as soon as all of those lanes will reopen on i 95 south we'll let you know. this morning, we're also keeping a close eye on the weather. >> meteorologist bill henley will tell us of changes. >> yes, tropical storm hermine formed yesterday, finally after day of meandering through the gulf of mexico. and now at 60-mile-an-hour winds it's starting to move a bit faster. the winds are at 60-mile-an-hour and moving to the northeast at 12 miles an hour already spreading rain in the gulf coast of florida. expecting it to strengthen and make landfall this evening. that's a faster path than what
6:06 am
had been earlier forecast. that will bring it our way potentially for the holiday weekend. this morning, we're getting rain, showers, we're seeing thunderstorms but this is not related to hermine. this is a cold front we've been tracking all week. from the suburbs, bucks, montgomery, chester county, that's where we're seeing steadier rainfall. it's coming down heavier in new kacast castle county and delaware. and showers streaming into south jersey and cape may, light rainfall right now. there you see the clouds over cape may in this is live view from the marquis de lafayette hotel. it won't be an all-day rainfall but enough to keep temperatures cooler in the day. during the 70s right now, low 80s during the day with breaks of sunshine possible. you can give the sunglasses a break and grab your umbrella. a closer look at the holiday weekend and the potential impact on our area with hermine as i
6:07 am

6:08 am
you can see the ben franklin parkway closes between now and the host of other closures you can find right now on the nbc10 app. switching gears, the 2017 nfl draft is coming to philadelphia. city leaders will make the official announcement later today at city hall. this will be the first major league sports draft in philadelphia since the nhl draft back in 2014. last year was a major year for philly in the draft. the eagles had the second pick overall selecting quarterback carson wentz. we caught up with former eagles quarterback rodney peete saying the nfl draft in philly is a winner, winner, chicken dinner. >> for these fans here, i don't think the draft or nfl or anybody knows about what's to happen in philly next year. >> that is rodney peete and his wife holly. very nice. we did research on the economic
6:09 am
impact the nfl draft had in chicago in 2015. and for the chicago and chicago sports bureau, that draft had an $81 million economic impact that created 2,000 temporary jobs. and 800 permanent jobs for chicago. >> we have to see what happens here in philly. hey, speaking of football, the eagles will wrap up the preseason tonight against the jets. you can catch all of the action right here. our coverage starts at 6:30 with the eagles preseason kickoff. kickoff at 7:00. right after the game, get highlights and exclusive interviews on eagles. don't forget, nbc10 is the official station of the philadelphia eagles. 6:09. looks like movement there on i-95. >> yeah, a little bit of good news for drivers stuck for a couple hours now. jessica boyington has another update. >> this is when we typically start to see big huge delays on 95 as it is. we're also combining that with
6:10 am
this accident scene that would make for a difficult commute. 95 southbound right around the penn's landing tunnel area closed off all morning because of an accident scene. this is a live shot what it looks like right now. they are finally allowing one car at a time pretty much to move through on the left-hand side. the tractor trailer hit a fire truck this morning. so is a lot of cleanup under way. there was injuries on the scene, accident investigation. and all of the lanes were shutoff for quite some time creating a massive backup. they're trying to help you out by letting that left lane go by. and also they're letting people off at the callowhill exit. again, it's an exit, one lane at a time going. you're not going to see major relief yet. get off around the betsy ross area if you want to move through center city that way. it's still going to take you a long time it's better than park lot-style traffic. you can head down front street.
6:11 am
the vine street expressway is starting to see a little delay. if you can get to the vine street expressway westbound, that's a good route there. we're seeing delays with intersection with the schuylkill. eastbound on the schuylkill expressway, hop back on 95 southbound in that direction. again, we're receiving a tiny bit of relief still big delays. we'll get to the philadelphia international airport. >> now, your nbc10 "first alert" weather. there are showers in the area. we're seeing temperatures cool down and spots running warmer this morning even with the rain. rittenhouse, 74. northeast fillphiladelphia in t 70s. clouds around, temperatures warm into the low 80s and that's it. cloudy skies in philadelphia. showers off to the north and south. this is where the steadier rain is, heavier downpours moving into southern new castle county

6:19 am
he'll have zero tolerance for undocumented immigrants who have committed a crime. triple the number of deportation office. number one on his list is to build that wall. >> are you ready? we will build a great wall along the southern border. >> and trump said mexico will pay for that wall, but earlier in the day, after meeting with mexico's president, trump said the two did not talk about who would pay. here's how mexico's president responded on twitter. at the beginning of the conversation with donald trump, i made it clear that mexico will not pay for the wall. trump's opponent democratic presidential nominee hillary clinton tweeted this. trump just failed his first foreign test. diplomacy isn't as easy as it looks." >> clinton's running mate tim kaine will be live on the "today" show this morning to

6:21 am
crawl and they're divesting off of that area as well. allows it through the scene at the time. if you have to catch a flight at the philadelphia international airport, you're going to see delays as well. callowhill exit is open. and the vine street expressway is another alternate. if you do get off around callowhill or get off around the betsy ross bridge exit, you can move through center city that way. get through the front street exit on 95 southbound and move that way. no delays there. vine street expressway headed westbound as we go the alternate. take the schuylkill eastbound. those are your best bets. i'll be back in ten with more. >> announcer: now, your nbc10 "first alert" weather. >> 21 minutes after 6:00. it's cloudy and dreary morning. heading out, grab an umbrella. i'm tracking showers and thunderstorms. we will see scattered shower us
6:22 am
and a chance of thunderstorms during the day even in the late afternoon hours today. this evening, looking good for the game. gradual, clearing skies drying out for beautiful weather for tomorrow. but this is what's going to greet you first thing this morning. for now, it is dry in philadelphia. look at the rain, south jersey, delaware, and areas northwest. you can see the rain moving through chester county, montgomery and bucks county. richmond, harvey, all getting rain right now. that steady right lane. heavier downpours tracking them through delaware. now moving into cumberland county and new jersey you can see some crossed the shore. on and off rainfall during the day today. this is all coming from a cold front, it's already drying out with a few scattered showers there. look how nice and clear it is in northwest pennsylvania. that's tomorrow's weather but this weekend's weather comes down to this. tropical storm hermine now with
6:23 am
60-mile-an-hour winds moving faster. already spreading rain to the gulf coast of florida. expecting the storms to strengthen and become a minimal hurricane to make landfall tonight at a faster track that's going come up the coast faster than earlier than expected. doing very well impacting the weekend weather. there are lots of computer models forecasting the storm system. they all agree taking it offshore of the area. potentially close enough to have an impact through the holiday weekend. possibly into tuesday. if it stalls offshore, like a number of models are suggesting. so we've made some changes to the weekend's forecast. rip current risk, that will stay with us through the day and increase over the weekend. avalon, margate, stone harbor, rehoboth beach, atlantic city, you'll see the rain arrive, heavy downpours on sunday.
6:24 am
monday eventually pulling away with temperatures in the 80s. the next few days depending on the path that hermine takes. for today, thunderstorms not related to the tropical storm will clear things out for tomorrow. look at the temperatures for tomorrow. then hermine later saturday, sunday, exiting the area on monday. on tuesday and wednesday, the heat is on and post-labor day, we could have a heat wave brewing for wednesday and thursday. the hottest friday. still the possibility with temperatures in the 90s on saturday. rosemary. >> thanks for that, bill. 6:24 on this thursday. this morning, we're learning more about a car accident involving major league baseball star and new jersey native mike troup. we'll tell you about the crash and update how he's doing.

nbc10 breaking news. and this morning, we're following breaking news for you. right now, traffic is backed up along a stretch of i-95 southbound after a crash between a fire truck and tractor trailer in old city. five firefighters were hurt and so was the truck driver. here's a live look from the scene, nbc10 was there as it all unfolded. one of our photographers actually saw this crash happen. good morning, this is the-n "nbc 10." i'm vai sikahema. >> and i'm rosemary connors. we'll get to the breaking news in old city. we want to let you know we're also following another big story, the weather. >> yeah, tropical storm hermine
6:33 am
could make landfall in florida overnight. and could affect us on the labor day holiday. bill henley is tracking that and he'll be here in a couple minutes. >> but first, we do have information on clark in old city. jessica boyington has news with how to get around it. let's go to pamela osborne live at the scene. pam. >> reporter: rosemary, a lot of injuries as a result of this accident. five firefighters are in the hospital recovering there this morning. as is the tractor trailer driver who was involved in that crash. now, we're standing on an overpass, right near chestnut. so we can give you a better look at where all of this occurred. you can see police are still on the scene there. traffic again is not moving on the southbound lanes. and it hasn't really been except for a few cars here and there since this accident took place. take a look. this is exclusive video of the moment following that crash. the nbc10 photographer who shot it, watched it all happen from
6:34 am
his rear view mirror. here's what i can tell you. the firefighters are in the far left lane between 95 south between chestnut and dock street. they were there to assist people who got into a minor car accident but within seconds we were the ones that needed rescued. a tractor trailer hit the fire truck. what happened next is remarkable, and injured firefighters then checked on the driver of that tractor trailer. the tractor trailer was taken to jefferson with nonlife-threatening injuries. the firefighters themselves in need of hem were taken to hahnemann hospital. i have a call into the hospital to see how they're doing. i'll keep you posted as soon as i hear something back from there. but again, traffic is causing a huge issue. there's a backup because of this right now. i know that police are in the process of doing something to
6:35 am
relieve some of that congestion. jessica boyington joining me now live to give us a little bit more about how people are being rerouted because of this accident. jessica. >> that's right. so a lot of rerouting under way because of this. a lot of detours. a lot of major backups as well. this is what the scene looks like right now from our live shot at the scene. you can see the tractor trailer in place being prepared to get out of the way. the fire truck that was involved earlier. there's massive cleanup with accident investigation. you heard pamela talk about a few minutes ago, they were allowing some cars to go through trickling through one at a time. now, it's all stopped because of the cleanup. we're looking at the cameras right around girard avenue. i've been finding most of our cameras seeing big delays around the southbound side. this is again, right around girard avenue, approaching that accident scene at a crawl. you want to get off notify for
6:36 am
sure. before this point or any exit you that get to, headed southbound. and to area where is we're starting to see just the end of that trickling delay. there are also additionally allowing all people to get off on the callowhill exit as well. on the vine street expressway, we're seeing a delay headed westbound because a lot of that diverted traffic is heading that way now. hop on the schuylkill expressway and come down to 95 southbound that way. if you exit 95 up at the top, you can move through center city down there. jump back on to the front street. head on to the front street exit ramp to 95 southbound and move through that way. especially if you have a flight this morning getting to philadelphia international airport, heads-up, you'll need it. the next step as you heard jess and pamela say it's to clear the scene. as soon as all lanes reopen there on 95 south, we'll let you know on the air, on nbc10, and
6:37 am
the nbc10 app. another big story, the weather we're watching the next few days. >> yeah, meteorologist bill henley changes us with changes for the labor day weekend. bill, tell us about the change. >> big changes because of tropical storm hermine at 60-mile-an-hour winds and now moving faster, accelerated its path towards florida at 12 miles an hour. showers are already starting to appear right along the gulf coast to florida. the storm is offshore as a strong tropical storm but could very well strengthen to a minimal current category 1 hurricane by later today that makes landfall tonight. that has the potential of changing dramatically our weekend weather in the area. this morning, we're getting rain showers and we're seeing thunderstorms not related to hermine. this is a cold front that's producing heavier downpours. and south jersey, steady light rain for the suburbs. chester county, bucks county
6:38 am
starting to spread. the bowe of the battleship "new jersey" you'll need your rain gear this morning. we've got cloudy parts for each of the area. temperatures in the 70s and occasional showers. it's going to be cooler in the afternoon than what we saw yesterday. 83 degrees in philadelphia. at the shore, it will be topping out at 80 degrees. you might see a break or two of sunshine. mainly cloudy and a bit damp, too. a closer look at the impact hermine has on our weekend when i come back in just a few minutes. >> see you shortly, thanks, bill. today, septa will update us on their repairs to their damaged train cars and hopefully, we'll get more information about when service will be back to normal. the bucks county company that's been making the replacement parts for the cars will join septa this morning at a news conference to tell us how much longer it will take to replace the cracked beam s on those car. septa pulled 120 regional railcars to be serviced earlier this summer.
6:39 am
last month, septa told us they will be bringing 10 cars a week back into service with the full service resuming by november. we'll get an update on that and be sure to pass on the information on the nbc10 app. on both sides of the parking battle on south philly are taking to the streets. >> if you live on broad you know what this is about. one group is looking to save 200 spots. they're trying to gather up petitions for the parking authority to make median spots legal. the spots are technically illegal for the city. but they looked the other way for a long time. the group on the other side of the debate wants the city to crack down on the spaces. they cite safety issues like the cars poking out into the street. they hope to replace the spot with trees or perhaps a grassy median. today, a philadelphia man who went to prison 43 years ago will walk free. tyronne jones served his time after being convicted of a
6:40 am
murder in 1973. he was 16 years old when it happened. in july, he became one of the first of 300 juvenile lifers in philadelphia to be granted parole. this follows a supreme court ruling that retroactively banned mandatory life terms for minors. state corrections secretary john wetzel says he understands how hard this transition will be for jones and for others like them. >> they're going back to a world they know nothing about. you know, in cartoon parlance, they came in in the flintstones era, they're getting out in the jetsons' era. you know, that creates a lot of anxiety. >> jones will be released from a prison in schuylkill county this morning and eventually go to live with his sisters in north carolina. first, the pope and the democratic national convention, and then philadelphia will be able to brag about another national honor. the city will host the 2017 nfl
6:41 am
draft. today's announcement will happen at city hall. this will be the first major league sports draft in philly since the nhl in 2014. last year was a big year for philadelphia and the nfl draft. the eagles had the second overall pick which they used to choose carson wentz, the quarterback from north dakota state. in 2015, the draft brought in $80 million for chicago. happening now -- tropical storm hermine aexpected to get stronger as it moves through the gulf of mexico and makes landfall along florida's panhandle. that's supposed to happen tonight. as meteorologist bill henley has been telling us, hermine could impact our weather this weekend. now, in the meantime, the tropical depression in the atlantic is causing strong rip currents. life guards have been busy placing red flags on the beach to let swimmers know they need
6:42 am
to be careful and not to use boogie boards in the water. and the coast guard is reminding boaters to wear life jackets and to let someone know when you're going out, and when you plan to return home. well, the impact of that jackknifed tractor trailer set up traffic on 95. >> yeah if you're head to get airport, if you're heading to work it's going to be difficult. traffic reporter jessica boyington has been keeping an eye on the cameras and keeping us updated. jess. >> yes, i've had people contact us on twitter telling me they were completely sitting at a standstill earlier this morning until 3:45 until a couple of minutes ago. and that's still sitting at a standstill. but right now, we're see something movement. southbound side, approaching the accident scene around the pen's landing area. they're letting one car trickle
6:43 am
through at a time. again, we're not going to see too much relief because of that. you can see we're at least moving. the best bet is the betsy ross bridge. come down the betsy ross bridge exit ramp head down through krentsdz ci center city that way. hop back on 95 southbound. that's an good way there and callowhill exit ramp the same way i just told you about or the vine street expressway we're seeing delays there. if you head to the vine street expressway jump back on to the schuylkill, head eastbound and access 95 that way. that's another good alternate for you. if you're head to get philadelphia international airport, heads up, you're going to be stuck in some of this traffic. you may be late for your flight. i'll check in with drive times as well. >> announcer: now, your nbc10 "first alert" weather. 6:43. it's a cloudy and a rainy start. cape may, new jersey. a few breaks in the cloyds, but
6:44 am
