township just outside the city of bridgeton. officials tell us four bridgeton school district students between the ages of 11 and 17 were on the school bus along with a driver and a bus aide. witnesses saw those children climbing out the back door of the bus following the crash. officials tell us all of the students and the bus driver were taken to medical center in vineland with minor injuries. the bus aide took cooper in camden with more serious injuries. people who live nearby were startled by what they heard and saw. >> it was a really big like crash. like you just heard metal. and then it was a lot of screeching. they were getting out the back of the bus. a lot of them were coming out the back. it was a bunch of screaming. couldn't make out any words. crying, screaming, everybody was frantic. >> couple kids were in shock. they put them on the gurneys and took them away to the hospital. one girl was definitely in a lot of shock. they were actually holding her
up. >> reporter: but again, we're told by state police and school district officials that those kids are okay. the name of the suv driver who was killed has not been released. new jersey state police are here, troopers here are conducting their investigation. so far they have not provided us with any information about what may have led to this terrible crash. we're going to stay here and continue to gather information. as soon as we get that we'll bring it to you. live in fairfield township cumberland county, ted greenberg, nbc 10 news. >> ted, thank you very much. you may need to get around that area there. time now for a check on traffic with jessica boyington. jessica, help us out. >> well, vai, you can see that bus was in the process of being towed out of the way. so we may have a little more or leave a little earlier than thought, but for right now we know it's an accident investigation underway and that area's still not cleaned up the 800 block of east commerce is still closed. your best bet for an alternate is here irving avenue. that's one of the biggest major
roads running by that scene. otherwise you can just follow the local detours. here's route 422 around 29, major accident involved right in here on the westbound side. one lane getting by that area right now. and a little bit of a backup behind that. use some caution. on montgomery avenue upper merion closed due to a large pothole, vai. jessica, thank you. the fog meanwhile has lifted. and we are dealing with pretty mild temperatures throughout our area today. here's a live look at actually the philadelphia art museum. we got off to a foggy start this morning. this is what it looked like in wayne, delaware county. this is around 4:00 a.m. you can't see too far down that road. nbc 10 first alert meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz is here with the forecast. looks much better, glenn. >> yeah, vai.
the fog has lifted. the clouds do remain. we're not going to be seeing sunshine during the day today, but it's already mild. it doesn't have to warm up very much to still be a very mild day for february. as a matter of fact, you can see all of those clouds just streaming up from the southwest. the rain is well offshore. but this moisture train goes all the way down to georgia and some of this moisture from north and south carolina are moving this way. it's 51 degrees in philadelphia now. into the mid-40s north and west. and so it is way too warm for snow at least for now. but things are likely to change as we go through the night tonight. okay. it's pretty mild today. mild this evening. temperatures in the 40s. and then you see rain break out especially in new jersey and delaware. the closer you are to the coast the heavier the precipitation's going to be. and as it gets heavier and the atmosphere cools down, the rain
changes to snow late tonight and into early tomorrow morning. question how far to the west that snow is going to occur, but it also looks like these temperatures remain above freezing. so we're talking about a wet snow, a little slushy on some of the grassy surfaces. temperatures fairly level during the day today. not dropping a whole lot until that rain starts tonight. more on the timing and how much snow to expect with the seven-day in a few minutes. all right. see you then, glenn. five west oakland families are back home this morning after an overnight gas leak forced them to evacuate their homes. crews worked for several hours to fix the cracked gas main on 21st street. in philadelphia, police released three new videos this morning as they try to solve crimes across the city. the first shows a gunman shooting a man outside sugar and spice in frankford tuesday
morning. the victim ended up at a hospital where he told police about the shooting. the shooter is still on the loose. also look at this new video of a gold suv that police say was involved in a shootout in logan friday night. the suv pulled onto west clarkson street and someone inside fired at least eight shots at a back car parked on the street. passengers in that car fired back as the gold suv drove away. it's described as a newer chevy equinox that may have bullet holes. and the black car started to follow several blocks later. it crashed into parked cars and flipped over on taber road. one man was taken to the hospital in critical condition. if you have any information about this shooting, you're asked to call police. and here's the third video. police are trying to find this man who they say robbed two food stores in fairhill wednesday morning. you can see him jumping through the drive through window at the dunkin donuts on west lehigh
avenue. he pulled out a knife, threatened the cashier and took money from the register. a few hours later the robber pulled off a similar crime at k & s food market on north fifth street. bill cosby will be back in court next month after a judge ruled his case can move forward. after two days of testimony the judge decided an immunity deal from ten years ago is not valid. cosby waves to fans as he left the courthouse in norristown last night but did not say anything about the judge's decision. he's accused of drugging and sexually assaulting a temple university employee. it's a case that dates back a decade. during his weeks -- this week's hearing, former montgomery county district attorney bruce castor testified he found the case too flawed to prosecute back in 2005 partly because of inconsistencies in the accuser's story. he says he used the immunity agreement to get cosby to answer questions in the civil case. in that deposition cosby admitted to giving drugs to
women before having sex with them. cosby's lawyers say they would never have let him sit for the deposition if they thought the criminal case could be reopened in the future. and they plan to appeal. happening today in burlington county, a high school teacher charged with possession of child pornography will have his first court appearance. david rodriguez was arrested yesterday. authorities say he used an online cloud service to upload photos and videos containi inin child important. rodriguez is a biology teacher at cumberland regional high school in bridgeton. we left a message for the school superintendent but have not heard back yet. and happening now in trenton, lawmakers are introducing a bill there to raise the state's minimum wage to $15 an hour. right now new jersey's minimum wage is $8.38. that means a full-time minimum wage worker makes less than $18,000 a year. currently new jersey has the highest minimum wage rate in our area. delaware's slightly behind at
$8.25 an hour. in pennsylvania meanwhile it's equal to the national minimum at $7.25 an hour. the s.s. united states will not only be saved from the scrap heap but it will sail the high seas again. crystal cruise announced this morning they are buying the famous ship which has been docked for decades in south philadelphia. the cruise line will renovate the ship and transform it back into a full fledged luxury passenger vessel. in 1952 the ship broke the transatlantic speed record. well, let the eating begin. 30 competitors will weigh in today for wingbowl 24. the eaters will appear at chicky's and pete's later this afternoon. wingbowl 24 starts tomorrow morning at the wells fargo center. it is billed as one of the world's largest wing eating contests. a portion of the proceeds will benefit the philadelphia fraternal order of police survivors fund. fans of the wells fargo center will soon have a kosher option when it comes to game time food.

see some snow in at least parts of the area by daybreak tomorrow. and some winter cold coming next week if not some more winter snow. we have cloudy skies out there now. it's 51 degrees. the wind is 17 miles an hour. and it is still 10 degrees above the average high for this time of the year. and it's mild everywhere again for this time of the year. 40 in mt. pocono, 40, west chester, those are the cold spots. there's no sunshine. still the cold spots out there. the warm spot 52 degrees in atlantic city. we did tie the record of 62 yesterday. we're 11 degrees colder than at this time yesterday. dover's 13 degrees colder. but it was ridiculously warm, record warm yesterday. and so that kind of a cooldown still doesn't make it cool. how much snow is left? officially not much. we've got just a touch up in lehigh valley and the poconos
and parts of burks county. we see all sorts of clouds over the entire area, the rain has moved out, the fog has moved out, but look at this area of clouds moving up from the southwest. now, some of this precipitation down in virginia and north carolina is going to make it up the coast. and the temperature of course is going to be critical to see what type of precipitation falls tonight. so we are in the mid-40s to low 50s now. and as we go through the afternoon, temperatures don't really change very much from where they are now. they may go up a couple degrees north and west. and it stays dry until this evening. and then it looks like some rain breaks out, especially delaware, south jersey. later this evening, close to midnight. look at the temperatures.
in the 40s. but as the atmosphere gets drier and the precipitation gets heavier, pulls down some of that cold air from higher up, and low and behold the rain changes to snow. and the temperatures drop, but they're not dropping all the way to freezing mark. this is a type of wet, slushy snow that kind of sticks to everything but would melt on the roads. and there by friday 10:00 a.m. or so it's gone. so what to expect, we have rain changing to snow late tonight. the heaviest snow will be close to the shore where we're talking a couple of inches, maybe a little bit more small slushy accumulations out of this. this is not going to be the fluffy type that blows in the wind. cloudy but mild this afternoon. temperatures in the upper 40s to the low 50s. then tonight we have the rain changing to wet snow. temperatures generally staying
above the freezing mark. and the seven-day forecast, well, you can see a pretty nice weekend there. temperatures close to 50 degrees. that's way above average. and then we have a chance of some snow early next week followed by cold weather. thank you, glenn. skyforce 10 has launched and it is hovering live over breaking news. thomas edison high school in the hunting park section of philadelphia is on lockdown. now, the preliminary information we're getting is very sketchy but authorities are telling us they have a report of a weapon that's inside the school. we are making phone calls and working to gather information on this. and of course stay with nbc 10 and nbc 10's app for updates on this breaking news. here's some news guaranteed to put a smile on your face. free dental care for kids. okay, well maybe that's just news that makes parents smile. we'll tell you where you can get your child checked out for free tomorrow. and later, encouraging news for millions of americans.
i've been in the hospital twenty three times since. the bills started to pile up. i had nothing to give. we had nothing in the refrigerator. i would be dead and not sitting here right now if it wasn't for pond lehocky. february is national childrens dental health month. and tomorrow dentists in our area will be helping kids get the dental care that they need. it's all part of give kids a smile day. dr. howard lasin is a cherryhill dentist once again involved with the program. doctor, thank you very much for
coming in. >> nice to see you. >> i see you work with kids because you have the props. i like that. tell us what this program is all about. >> well, we're celebrating our 14th year of give kids a smile. it started 2002 in st. louis, missouri by two dentists. it is to provide dental care to the underserved of the nation. this time we'll be again in c camden county college in blackwood, new jersey. we'll be there from 9:00 until about 4:00 or 5:00 i guess. >> tell me some of the reasons that you think parents typically don't stay on top of their children's dental health care? i suppose if you don't have money, it's just easier to go only when you have an emergency, right? i'm guessing that may be one of the reasons. >> that's definitely true. you know, dental care is a difficult thing for many parents to pay for.
and sometimes expensive. and to be able to provide care to children is very important to us as dentists and as health care providers. so it's a lot when the children don't complain. sometimes people assume that the teeth will fall out any way and they'll be okay. >> and i'm guessing people just view it as perhaps a luxury item. but what are some of the biggest issues you see with children and their teeth? >> well, according to the cdc and preventive -- prevention, they classify dental decay as the most chronic disease in children. one out of four children in the united states have dental decay that is untreated. it is a very serious concern to us because it can affect their day, the way they eat, the way they sleep, the way they
function in school. dental pain if you ever had it is not very comfortable at all. it can be very, very debilitating. >> you have an abscess tooth there's nothing more painful than that. besides the event tomorrow, what are some other options that parents may have at their disposal for dental health care for their kids? >> well, it's an ongoing program. the ada is celebrating its 75th year of dental health month. and there's ongoing program throughout the nation. what i did is i went online to the ada and new jersey dental association. and you can click on sites where they have sites for tomorrow where we'll be or around the state in pennsylvania and in new jersey, in the tri-state area. but there's other avenues, there's clinics in south jersey. and i know in pennsylvania too the dental schools.
so there's always avenues to try to get help. but this is an ongoing issue for us as dentists we're very concerned about providing care to the underserved of the state. >> well, we appreciate you coming in. you came last year and you always come in to let people know especially those who are underserved about this opportunity to get help the dental health care they need for their kids. camden county college is one of the more than eight locations participating in give kids a smile tomorrow. dental care for children 12 and under being offered at the school's dental hygiene campus in blackwood township from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for more information go to our website at nbc10.com or check out the nbc 10 app. >> nice to see you again. >> thank you very much for coming in. >> for you, sir. >> is that for me? you telling me something? >> not at all. >> thanks a again. nice to see you. we continue to follow breaking news and developments on that breaking news in

in reality they're not. if a denture were to be put under a microscope, we can see all the bacteria that still exists on the denture, and that bacteria multiplies very rapidly. that's why dentists recommend cleaning with polident everyday. polident's unique micro clean formula works in just 3 minutes, killing 99.99% of odor causing bacteria. for a cleaner, fresher, brighter denture every day.

47 in allentown. 45 degrees in reading. and as we go through the day today the temperature if anything goes down a little bit this afternoon. but the cloud cover continues as we go through the day. then this evening some of that moisture thickens up and rain starts to break out. delaware and in new jersey temperatures way above freezing. as the colder air comes down, the precipitation gets heavier, the rain changes over to snow. closer to the coast the more snow you're going to get. more on the timing of that, how much to expect and what to expect for the weekend with the seven-day in a few minutes. all right. thank you, glenn. checking out our nbc 10 headlines. five west oak lane families are back home this morning after an overnight gas leak forced them to evacuate their homes. pgw crews worked for several hours to fix the cracked gas main on 21st street. a high school teacher charged with possession of child

wrote. >> well, i wrote a book, my journey with cancer. it just has like the basics from when i was sick to being in the hospital, losing hair to tell you about -- to getting better. >> ellen, this is world cancer day but you're calling it deana day. what do you want people to know about this wonderful and pretty young woman? >> well, several things. first of all, the book is terrific. she is so candid in her description as what it was like to go through treatment. and yet it was so upbeat. i want people to look at her and to see how, you know, successful she's been. and how close -- how far we've come with the cure for cancer. years ago, you know, in the '60s and '70s the cancer that deana had would have been a much different outcome. and now it has a 90% cure rate.
>> tell me real quick how your book is raising money for your organization. >> well -- >> hold your book up. we want people to see it and buy it. there it is. >> well, the book is now on kindle so it's easier for people to download. and, you know, some of the proceeds from the money from kindle will go to the leukemia and lymphoma society and then the rest will go to us. >> well, deana's book, how my sun got its smile, is sale online. proceeds benefit the leukemia and lymphoma society. we'll have a link at nbc10.com. thank you very much for coming in. >> thank you for having us. >> you come back in a few more years and just kind of keep track of your life that way. thank you very much, guys. now your nbc 10 first alert weather with chief meteorologist glenn "hurricane" schwartz. a lot of rain and record warm temperatures, at least in parts of the area yesterday. that's gotten rid of pretty much all the snow.
but we are still mild, unseasonably mild again today despite all the clouds. we are tracking some wet snow that is going to hit a good bit of the area overnight. and winter like temperatures next week if not some more snow. now, you can see all those clouds out there. it looks kind of threatening, but it's not going to be doing anything this afternoon. 51 degrees. the winds north-northwest at 17 miles an hour. and as we go through the night tonight you're going to see these temperatures drop just a little bit. as you can see here during the afternoon 53 degrees and then this evening we're dropping into the mid 40s. so how could it snow? well, in some cases it can snow while temperatures are in the 40s. it's not going to stay in the 40s if that happens. the temperature then drops into the 30s. but it certainly can start in the 40s. you can see we're in the 40s now. 46 at pottstown, 45 blue bell,
45 kenneth square. 45 washington township and wilmington, 51 mt. holly, northeast philly. so it's pretty mild everywhere. 51 in dover and also in beeach haven with northwest wind. that's why the fog is gone, winds have shifted. you can see the clouds from the southwest but you don't see anything on radar close by. we're starting to see a little bit of an increase here in parts of virginia. and i've kind of tilted the map so it's a little easier to see where it's going. it looks like it's headed mostly toward the shore. and those are the areas that are going to get the heaviest precipitation. but you're also going to get a lot of rain. so here we are this evening and the rain is starting. and southern delaware and south jersey it will break out across much of the area and we're going to be seeing some pretty significant rain for a good bit of the night with temperatures in the 40s. and then all the sudden it's going to change to snow. and it could change to heavy wet snow suddenly. and it could also happen in
philadelphia area all the way to the shore. and how much snow? we have different computer models generally showing more toward the shore, couple of inches there. maybe slushy inch around the philadelphia area. but that's the european model. but one new model that's just in shows up to three inches of snow in parts of the shore area and little bit of slushy accumulation even around philadelphia. so, again, updates this afternoon as some new data comes in. the european model updates in a couple hours. cloudy but mild today. high temperatures in the upper 40s to the mid-50s. tonight, we have rain developing. but it changes to wet snow. if it's going to do anything for the morning rush tomorrow, it's going to be snowing, not raining. but the temperature may stay above the freezing mark. and then the seven-day forecast the early rain to snow tomorrow and then a really nice weekend, above average temperatures. and then it gets colder again
