5:01 am
not in your neighborhood, almost here. not in our neighborhood yet, but we know we'll need the umbrellas. 44 degrees right now, 7:08, your sunrise time, daylight dawning time, because we don't expect sunshine with all of the rain. thirty-four in mount pocono. forty in reading. over in lancaster, where they are about to get the heavy rain, 36 degrees, 47 atlantic city, 42 wilmington. so all of the temperatures above freezing, just rain in the forecast, here, is your morning commute lighter rain, showers around through about 9:00. it will be getting miler. already in the 50's by 9:00. then as you're driving home, this is where you will see the heavy downpours, the ponding, a few thunderstorms are not out of the question, and possibly that record high temperature of 65 degrees. we just have to beat 62, which was set in 2006 to get a new record for today. so unusually mild, unusually warm, unusually wet. all for your wednesday. so, lots of action coming
5:02 am
today. let's see what's going on on the roads, we had been rather tran quill on our morning commute. but let's see what we got right now. talcony palmyra bridge opening up, for a boat to go through, about ten after 5:00. so very shortly, use caution or maybe pick another bridge if you are leaving right now, blue route, approaching conshohocken, still pretty clear, at this hour. and your travel times this morning, looks like it is smooth sailing on the schuylkill and that portion of i95 near woodhaven road. which always gets kind of bottlenecked a little later on. so, so far so good, lauren, chris. >> thank you so much, sue. happening today, it is decision day for bill cosby, judge expected to rule whether the criminal case will move for or be tossed out. >> dave kinchen standing by live at the montgomery county courthouse, to catch up, catch us up to speed on what's going on, hi, driver.
5:03 am
>> judge will decide something today, whether these charges will stick or whether this whole case will never make it to trial, and these charges from the sexual assault charges against bill cosby will be thrown out. here's what we know. bill cosby left court yesterday after six hours of testimony, from former montgomery county district attorney bruce cast to who was key witness for the cosby defense team. castor testified did he not pursue charges against cosby because every credibility issues would cause the accuser former temple university employee andrea constant. now, castor said there was not enough evidence to show that cosby had committed a crime. he also said constant did not act like victim every sexual assault according to her police interviews and said she went to a lawyer before going to police. she played a deal not to prosecute cosby but asked why that deal was not put into writing.
5:04 am
he said he didn't feel it was necessary, and that is the key point for cosby's team, they said, because of that, cosby should never have been charged, and should never be prosecuted. so again, big question, what will the judge decide? will the case move to trial or will these charges simply be thrown out? we'll know that today. back to you guys. it will be interesting to find out. >> son of chaka fattah pennsylvania's longest serving member of congress sentenced to five years behind bars, taken straight to prison. >> chaka fattah junior in federal court yesterday. judge told the 33 year old man chip he had advantage others could only dream about. but simply made bad choices, convicted of tax and bank fraud in november among other things fattah accused of ripping off the philadelphia public school system to pay for a lavish lifestyle. his father, who is also under federal indictment for alleged corruption, spoke after the sentencing. >> i believe in our system of justice. and i think it would be
5:05 am

5:06 am
witnesses say the car did not have a green light. speeding through it after it went from yellow to red. watch, as we show you, the first angle of the first of three surveillance videos, this young mother, six month old baby, strapped to her in a harness to her chest with the five year old daughter right next to them. they have got the green light. they go from the sidewalk into the crosswalk, going into the side street intersection along big broad street across the smaller one way dickinson, where this red maroon honda hits all three. the five year old hit first, and thrown the farthest, all the way across to the opposite side of broad street, just past 1:00 in the afternoon yesterday, so lot of witnesses to help with the three victims, lots of cameras to help the cops. >> that car shot down here, i think, shot down here, and kept going. it shot out the way. it new it did something wrong when it shot out of here. and it left the mother there like to die more or less, for real. you know? i am just putting out there, who ever did this incident to
5:07 am
this mother and her two children need to turn themself in or have somebody represent you or something because you was wrong for doing t thank god the mother and the baby still alive. because that hit, that hit, can't forget that hit. >> well besides the video evidence, how about this? some physical evidence. police have the passenger rear view side meyer or it, broke off on impact. that almost makes them positive this is a 2,001 honda accord. now, video and witnesses pretty positive it was a female driver, and you can see this camera, as we pull up, farther away, about three blocks past broad street, along dickinson, the car captured going by in color speeding away without that passenger side mirror. and chris, you mention, looking for the car and driver, if they don't find them first, probably also will be happy they look for more surveillance video watch they would really like to see is a car going past surveillance,
5:08 am
maybe get the license plate, because no front plate. so that's why we only have the front of car for now. they have three cameras, if anybody out there watching has a surveillance camera in south philly, and may have got this car coming at them, either before or after the accident along broad street, give the cops a callment check your video. see if you got it. >> yes, you don't have to have kids of your own to make that video have your stomach turn. i mean -- >> hard to watch. >> really. all right, steve, thank you. time now 5:08. >> special goods brought police to a high school. >> franklin township police say officials got a tip, approached the stooped, then called police investigators, say the student had brownies and cookies layed when more than 50 grams of marijuana. >> they indicated that the juvenile was in possession of expected baked goods baked with marijuana. they had them and turning them over to us. >> surprising specially what the kid had. i heard it was a lot.

5:10 am
everything is fine, this is what's going on, that's what i think communication is lack every communication here. >> police did not finds that gun in the school. the lock-down was lifted after two hours. pennsylvania state police looking into an alleged cheating scandal involving its cadets, the internal investigation sensors on the class scheduled to graduate this spring. at issue, whether cadets were given the questions to academic he can a.m. by a cadet who recently graduated. and instructor discovered the alleged cheating and they did report it. >> take a look, wild scene in north philly captured by surveillance cameras, car moving in the wrong direction on north eighth street, crashes into parked cars, then two men walking up the street, open fire on it. this happened late last month, gunman ran around the corner, jumped into white car, took off. no one was hit by the flying bullet, but several cars were damaged. if you have any information, of course, call philadelphia police. and take a look at your screen right now, police say the man with the gray hooded sweatshirt opened fire in the

5:33 am
team. did not pursue charges against cosby years ago because of court credibility issues, with cosby's accuser temple employee andrea con stand. castor said there was not enough evidence to show cosby had commit add crime. he also said con stand did not ask a victim every sexual assault according to her police interviews, said she went to a lawyer before ever going to the police. castor made a deal not to prosecute cosby, but the judge asked why that deal was not put in writing, and castor simply replied, it wasn't necessary. so, today, again, the judge is expected to make a ruling. that much the judge said yesterday, and at 7:30, our legal team will breakdown what will likely happen today. so you will want to watch fox 29 goodday philadelphia and stay with us all day as we follow the second day of this hearing. back to you. >> dave, we can hear that you're joined by hundreds of other journalists and generators and live trucks and see how loud it is.
5:34 am

5:35 am
they've got the light. they've got the law on their hand, because they are in the crosswalk, they are walking up broad street. they go from sidewalk into crosswalk and boom. they are hit. this car probably was looking up at the light as it changed from green to yellow to red and trying to make the red light into broad. and did not going through the red light according to a lot of witnesses in the police after they enhanced and looked at this surveillance video from several different cameras. >> the little girl, really scary, tramatic, and i hope she is okay. i heard that she had like a broken leg. she was far from the mother, too, so she must have gotten thrown. i think it is terrible that person is going to get caught. so that's good, but like they shouldn't have had to go to that point. and i think that they should have stopped obviously. just making things worse for them. it is in the right. >> always tough to hide your
5:36 am
car when it is missing a vital part and the public knows that, in this case you can see, the passenger side rear-view mirror broke off on impact, and there is probably some front end damage, as well. because that little five year old was hit and thrown the farthest, landing on the opposite side of broad street. this driver is lucky, five year old tough little girl, broken leg, mom is tough, too. head injuries, critical, and has survived. and the baby because she was strapped so well to mom's chest, mom's body protecting the baby. the baby just some scrapes watch scratches. nobody got hilled here. charges won't be as serious but still quite serious but just luck foy there are driver knob was kill or this driver would be doing some mandatory prison time. >> grace of god this wasn't a whole lot worse. and i'm getting the way the mother fell she must have fallen on her side on her back not on top of the little baby. because that could have been whole different outcome if that were the case, steve.
5:37 am
