12:30 am
getting some attention. > stay with us, fox5 news at 11 starts right now. this is fox5 local news at 11. right now at 11, the flakes are falling. crews are roads, but your morning commute could still be a mess. a driver accused of hitting and killing two pedestrians in two separate car crashes, why weren't charges ever filed. > internet controlled cars, virtual reality, the hottest technology is on display at the consumer electronics show. voice control is huge. ai, all these things are coming together. your news starts right now. let's get things started now with the weather alert. let's give you a live look right now in frederick, m maryland. as you can seehe
12:31 am
coming down. it is staying on the grass, but it doesn't look like it's sticking to the streets, but it's cold out there and it's going to get colder. > thanks for staying with us, i'm shawn yancy and i'm tony perkins. parts of the area are already under a winter weather advisory. the snowfall could mean traffic trouble and some school delays tomorrow. > sue palka and lauren demarco are working the weather alert tonight. let's begin now you with an update on what you can expect. sue. >> there she is. flakes out here in d.c. and it's very light. we haven't seen much all night. you have to look closely but we have had a lot of dry air over d.c. that prevented us from really seeing much going. bottom line not much has fallen. we still have the opportunity of getting a dusting a little bit later tonight because there is a about it more coming that we see out through west virginia. they're not taking any chances. we are
12:32 am
the street we can see all the salt trucks that are standing by to see if the flurries why aringing to amount to something that need more salt. it l almost looks like it rained out here, but i was actually the melting salt. let me show you radar because i want to show you where things have filled in over d.c. you will be able to sea brighter colors of purple. that's where we've had some brighter areas of snow. up toward the maryland counties that border pennsylvania getting closer to an inch to two inches out toward hancock. we saw that, winchester 2, frederick county getting close to an inch, inch and a half. basically that was all that was expected out of that. what we're much whatting is one last band that you see out there, not too far from charles attorneys west virginia. that still has to swing through. we think that will happen between now and 3 in the morning. that is possible that it
12:33 am
put down another dusting or add to the totals, but not a lot of snow is going to be falling out of that. by this pulling out at 3 in the morning i think there will be a few delays where you've already seen snow especially because temperatures will be near or blow freezing north and west so we could have some slick spots. there is another round of snow coming and is that the one we just saw in west virginia. we also have to watch saturday for some of our southern and eastern suburbs, but we'll have more on that in a few minutes. if we see anything else, it's between now and three in the morning and that does give crews several hours before the rush hour to get going on everything. this is only going to end up being a dusting to two inches. if we see that doug it will be in the next two or three yours who. here's a few snow totals that you can see out to our north and west from earlier today. coming up, a look at the seven day forecast and why some parts of our area are under a winter storm watch f
12:34 am
shawn and tony back to you. >> thank you very much. meanwhile, fox5's lauren demarco continues our team coverage live in fredericks maryland. how is it going there, lauren? >>reporter: i don't think we have much to complain about. of course you want to be careful with the slick conditions but we missed the whole problem with rush hour. right now if you take a look live look out here, we were near carlson park a seconding a and it's really pretty. this is like the beautiful snow that sticks to the trees and the grass. it looks like they've done a good job. the crews have done pretty well. as you look up on the side streets there are some light coating of snow. for the most party think everybody is getting around just fine right now. here maryland state police in frederick implemented the snow emergency plan at 8:00 p.m. if you're on the road you need to have proper
12:35 am
they've been deployed and preparing for this since yesterday. ddot pretreated with the brine and both juice mix to prevent ice from performing on the road. they have other pieces equipment ready to go. earlier tonight we spoke with the vdot spokesman in fairfax to check in on the preparations there. the rush hour in the morning is our big pest concern. again, we're out with 11 pieces of equipment we'll have the roads in great condition. when we go out and we do our anti icing or our brine olympics that will stay on the road for five olympics as long as it doesn't rain. it works. this is the eighth year that we've used the brine and it's proven that it's worth it. > as we drive around here on the neighborhood roads you really can't see some areas where it is beginning to stickment you of course want to be careful in the morning as you
12:36 am
bridges and overpasses and i'm going to have my photograph pull over. you you can look at pretty houses that are getting covered in snow. also, if you're out there driving, the big warning is to give yourself plenty of space between the salt trucks and plows. they want to be sure that people keep their distance and be save out there on the road. i wanted to end this off by coming out here myself -- and saying hi, tony. the worst athlete of all time. this is how i see you through my phones. beautiful out there. luckily you missed. > all right, lauren, thank you very much. > take a look at this. salt trucks on the road led to a price hike on the 495 express lanes during the evening commute. tolls were up to for drivers hoping to use the express lanes into
12:37 am
transurban, that's the company who runs the lanes they manage those tolls. they told fox5 there were two salt trucks on the lanes so prices were liked to deter drivers from getting on there. >> i understand that prices fluctuate and given the situation with it snowing, okay but $30 is a little bit ridiculous. in fact, my take is, when there's severe weather why don't you open that up for riders and make it a little bit more feasible versus upping the rates. > because they won't make money that way. >> transurban says toll prices fluctuate and that there is no amount too high to charge for express lane privileges. >> a mother wants to know why the driver who hit and killed her son while he was crossing route 1 is not being charged because it turns out that it is the second time in three months the same driver hit and killed a pedestrian. fox5's teisha lewis is live in laurel tonight with the story. >>reporter: well, shawn we're
12:38 am
victims were reportedly not according to police. both accidents happened here along route 1 and it's easy to see why. this is a very heavily traveled, busy roadway, four lane roadway with apparently no crosswalks, but what makes this situation unimaginable is that the two fatal accidents happened with the same driver behind the wheel. and the mother of the 23 year old victim in the most recent case that happened this n this vicinity that she thinks this a tragedy that should have and could have been avoided. >> there's no crosswalk there. he was walking. he was trying to get on. i know him. he wasn't in the middle of the street. does this man need his eyes checked? it can't be just like he killed two people and that's just the end of it. it's not fair. > you hit somebody, you kill somebody's family member. the human thing in
12:39 am
should have done, pick up the phone, call, try to fine the family, apologize. > and that's georgia seaton who said they are jonathan had big dreams of becoming an engineer. he was attending community college and working at a nearby hotel in the meantime. tuesday, just two days after christmas, a little after four a.m., he was walking home after hanging out with friends. that's when police say 55 year old brian ester was driving a box truck northbound on route 1, north of 100 when he hit seaton. seaton was walking in the roadway at the time. ester is the bread truck delivery driver and again, this is the second time he has struck a pedestrian, killing him. the first incident happened in september, a young woman was killed in that incident. we did talk to police about all of this and they say that it's important to note that if a pedestrian is not walking in the crosswalk, which you can see here in the structured roadway it may be difficult to do because there are no crosswalks, p but again, what police
12:40 am
saying is that if a pedestrian is not walking in the crosswalk, they are, in fact, breaking the law. teisha lewis, fox5 local news. > take a look at this, this bus over turned today. five people are now recovering after this accident. the bus collided with area vehicle right at the intersection of brian town road and hunt tore hill place in waldorf. three people on the bus, two people in the vehicle all suffered minor injuries, the cause of the crash is still under investigation. > well, there was a huge bribery bust in prince george's county. two of the four people charged with bribery conspiracy are state appointed members of the county's liquor board. the scandal could grow as prosecutors expect to charge at least two elected offerings as well. no word yet on who those officials are. the fbi raided two liquor stores, a salvage yard and a liquor board headquarters today. prosecutors say the scream was all about trading money for votes. they believe it is
12:41 am
the sunday sales bill, which allows certain liquor stores to sell liquor on sundays. > beginning in 2012 there were bryce that were paid in return for grants and other government assistance and then the references to liquor sales arise more recently in 2015 with a sunday sales bill, which was state legs that involved about 100 liquor licenses in prince george's county. > prosecutors say the bryce were between # and 5 thousand dollars the us attorney says more charge are likely. > coming up next, teenagers charged in a hate bill attack that was streamed on facebook live. also ahead tonight they are going to be this year's hottest tech toys. we're going to check out the hottest gadgets on display on the consumer tech show right now. one possible replacement for the defensive coordinator already has a

beating a white developmentally disabled man in chicago, ripping his clothing and cutting him with a knife. the incident went on for nearly two days. police say the suspects made anti trump remarks during the torture, but chicago police do not believe the crime was politicallyq;s motivated. strong words today from the national intelligence director p about claims that russia interfered in the recent presidential election. during a senate hearing on cap l toll james clapper testified there is no doubt the country did -- russia did play a key role in the election, but he added despite the recent findings there is no way to know exactly how their activity did or did not influence american votings. first we cannot say -- they did not change any vote tallies or anything of that sort. we had no way of engaging the impact that certainly the intelligence community can't
12:46 am
choices of the elect tort made. there is no way for us to gauge that. president elect trump will be briefed about the intelligence committee tomorrow about the hacking report. > the hottest new tech toys are on display this week at the annual consumer electronics show in las vegas. fox's adam housley gives us a sneak peak at some of the couldest gadgets coming our way. >>reporter: you might call it combat get tone yeah as the world converges on the consumer& electronics show all trying to wow a worldwide audience. from paper thin tv to interest neat connected yours contact, virtually everything here gives us a glimpse of what will be every day technology in the days to come. bigger and better is always the case. voice control is huge. ai, all these things are coming together. bigger, smaller and safer are th

12:49 am
still possible we pick up more accumulation, but not a lot on top of what you already have. great pictures that you've been sending on facebook and twitter. this is ca owens in boonsboro, m. you can see all the footprints in the snow. they've had enough to cover the grass. it looks like the side streets and certainly it's sticking to the bushes as well. maybe out in those areas a possibility of a two-hour delay tomorrow morning. a lot of us south and east of that band that is set up to the north really haven't seen much. i did want to point out to you these darker purposes indicate where there is moderate snow falling. it's not a big area, but we're starting to see another approaching state 81. mount jackson, that is also moving from west to east. that's that last patch that we see out here over west virginia that we think is going to come through. you can also see in the last hour or so it looks like itself getting pretty
12:50 am
if d.c. is going to get a dusting it will be out of that. that's about all we're going to see in the d.c. area. in fact, we're painting that dusting to maybe an inch. right now it looks like if you were to see that inch it's going to be in north and western montgomery. we've had our two much ines in the web facing front of the alleghany. two to three, maybe even five inches snow out there. i think all the salt and brine that they've put down is doing a fantastic job. 36 for the district, 28 for martinsburg, 27 for hagerstown where we've had a couple of inches of snow. if the buses are running on time tomorrow you should have a range of temperatures from 25 to 32. clouds and a little bit of sun getting through, kind of chilly, after school it's not a warm day, breezy. a little bit more sunshine, 31 to 36-degrees. here's a look at your planner for friday, a pretty easy
12:51 am
temperatures tomorrow only topping out in the upper 20s to low 30s. all eyes on the next system that has much more potential. it's a southern system that will be developing off the coast. look how close we are to this. this is going to be several inches of snow and the winter storm watches will be flying for this storm which will be friday night to saturday afternoon. ocean city you may get a few inches of snow out of this before it pulse away on saturday evening. i wanted to show you there's a loft winter storm warnings that you see here in this pink color and winter storm watches present south eastern virginia over to salsbury and the beaches. i don't think that's going to get expanded. our models tonight are keeping it about in that position. we're going to continue to watch it because it's a little too close for comfort. send us your pictures if you get snow. the weekend is going to be very cold. maybe some snow south and east.
