bristol bridge, again, hard to see in the dark, but it is still open. so, try taking an alternate route if that's your usual bridge. roosevelt boulevard past wissahickon avenue. we see some extra volume there, roads pretty wet but all clear. travel times this morning, haven't sloan down too much. still pretty smooth sailing on the schuylkill from the blue route to the vine. >> 6:02, bill cosby drawing the crowds outside montgomery county courthouse, and today, could be decision day. >> yes, the judge said little late yesterday afternoon the decision probably should be made after they discuss it, one more time there is afternoon. so, cosby due in court probably about the same time it was about what, 8:30, 9:00 we saw him head to the courthouse? dave, what are you hearing? at the courthouse?
>> today here is what we know. judge steven o'neil will in fact decide whether there case is thrown out, or if it does go to trial of course they're trying to get the criminal charges thrown out. bill cosby left court yesterday 5:30 after six hours of testimony from former montgomery county district attorney bruce castor, key witness to cosby's defense team, he testified did he not pursue charges against cosby years ago, because of quote credibility issues with cosby's accuser former temple employee andrea constant. said there was not enough evidence to show cosby commit add crime. he also said constant did not act like victim of sexual assault according to her police interviews, and said, that she -- he said she went to a lawyer before going to the cops. castor made a deal not to prosecute cosby, but the judge asked why that deal was not
put in writing. castor simply replied: it wasn't necessary. but castor also told cosby he was not on their side either. the big question now, what will the judge decide? by the way, weaver legal experts that will be on good day philadelphia at 7:30, to explain what could likely happen today. >> guys, back to you. >> hey, a lot going on. thanks, if you want to know more about this, when the decision comes down, you might want to get the fox 29 app. so we can give that you breaking news alert when the decision comes down from the judge. all right, 04:00,. >> let's get to lauren johnson. >> good morning, alec, so far developing story, police looking for hit-and-run driver who ran over a woman and two children as they crossed the street. the mother and kids were left lying in that south philadelphia street. as the car sped away. happened right at the intersection of dickinson street and broad, witnesses returned to help the mother, the baby and her five year old daughter, and kept them calm until emergency crews arrived.
>> taken to the hospital. police now hoping that nearby surveillance video will help them catch the person who hit them. >> a wild scene in north philadelphia, captured by surveillance cameras. you see a car moving in the wrong direction, on north eighth street. crashes into a park car, then two men walking up the street, they start shooting at. it happened late monday night. gunman ran around the corner, jumped in white car, took off, no one hit by the flying bullets but several cars damaged. some special baked goods, brought police to gloucester county high school on monday morning franklin township police say school officials got a tip about it. they approached the student, then called police. investigators say the student had brownies and cookies laced with more than 50 grams of marijuana. police believe the student intend today sell the laced brownies but they don't believe any other student brought them. the teen was release today a parent, will be in court soon. mike anal next. >> missing gun forces are
local school in to lockdown. par rent pretty serious. they say they were left to really fear the worse. they didn't get a lot of information. >> drama unfolded yesterday morning at kensington urban education academy, a school officer's gun was stole friend his car. >> but that officer wasn't sure if it was taken while his car was park at home, or at the school. so, police put the school in lockdown while they searched the building and patted down each and every student. parent told "fox 29 news" of the lock-down and began to spread, but the school didn't do a good job of explanation what was happening according to parent. police did not find the gun in the school. a lock-down was lifted after about two hours. >> all right, later in the program, we've been told for weeks now that zika virus has spread through mosquito by the. the unusual way health officials say a patient in texas got this virus. >> and seconds place good enough? why donald trump says he wouldn't change a thing regarding results from the iowa caucuses.
>> listen to this. >> i think i would have done probably a little bet nerve iowa had i not, you know, gone out and wanted to do that event for the vets. but, you know, i'm very happy with second place finish! >> so, what he means there, did i make the right decision in skipping the fox news debate? the last debate before the iowa caucuses. donald trump spending time reflecting on his spot in the republican caucuses there in iowa. donald says his decision to skip that last gop debate before the iowa caucuses may have contributed to second place finish, but wanted to dot thing for the vets and avoid megan kelly apparently. >> said he would do it the same way. >> what else can he say? finished second, to ted cruz, not by much, in monday evening's contest, replacing first and multiple polls. polls didn't mean anything. he skipped the debate, he says, because of a spat he had with fox news channel, specifically, with megan kelly, and instead, of going
to the debate, he went to fundraiser for veterans that raised $6 million. there is his big check. donald trump said woe never, ever give that up to go between first and second place in iowa. i guess pretty good response. 6:11,. >> could this be america's new guilty pleasure, every tuesday night for what the next nine nights? no, nine weeks? there is a lot to look forward to in the people versus o.j. simpson. coming up we have the highlight from last night's premiere. what did you think about it? tweet me, alex whom i fox 29. flonase allergy relief nasal spray.
this changes everything. flonase is the 24 hour relief that outperforms the #1 non-drowsy allergy pill. when we breathe in allergens, our bodies react by over-producing six key inflammatory substances that cause our symptoms. most allergy pills only control one substance, flonase controls six. and six is greater than one. so go ahead, inhale life, excite your senses, seize the day and the night. flonase. six is greater than one. this changes everything.
>> looking at a map of snow cover. places just got that blizzards, obviously, they have a lot of snow. we still have quite a bit left over from the blizzards of about a week and a half ago. the thing is, though, after today, just about all of this is going to be out of here because of this. we zoom in, show you where it is raining right now here in philadelphia, we're got the steady rain around haverford, in delaware county, some pretty steady rain, as well. to the north of us, we're seeing areas of heavy rain, and it is just kind of light and spotty around wilmington, delaware, newark, around the university, but you're going
to get your heavy rain share, as well. temperatures are going to probably head to the 60s, so we jump ahead to about 2:00 this afternoon, and it looks like not only rain, but the possibility of thunderstorms, later on, now the records is 62, we will see if we do indeed break that record, 62 degrees, was set in 200610 years ago, so, that's on the way. and the rain still with us, through the evening hours, it looks like very messy evening commute. plan on that. plan on not very good hair day. and by 11:00, 12:00 looks like it is not quite gone yet. so, this is why we have the flood watch in effect, it is a long lasting event, with maybe an inch, inch and a half of rain. and the flood watch lingers into thursday, tomorrow, afternoon. at least all of our temperatures are above freezing, it is 42 in wilmington, 36 lancaster, and mount pocono, ooh in wildwood, here in the city it is 43 degrees. forty-one is your average high. so already above average right now, and with temperatures the

morning. >> hey, it is almost 6:17 this wednesday. wonder what else you got? >> new information about the zika virus, how it may spread. off initials dallas texas now believe patient contracted the illness by having sex, sexual partner had already been infected with zika. virus usually spread through mosquito bites and poses greatest threat to unborn children causing birth defect. has declared global emergency, scientists are rush to go come up with a vaccine, but his could take years. michigan governor rick snide letter propose $30 million in state funding, to help pay the water bills of flint resident they say an emergency over the city's lead contaminated water supply, snide letter brief city officials about the proposal today. plans to outline it to lawmakers next week. the aid would cover the portion of residential customers, utility bills, for watt their has been or will be used. the us marine corps says trace elements of dna have bands fawn from marines killed in a helicopter crash. spokeswoman said in a statement yesterday, dna

anthology. >> a lot of people are talking about this moment, because they called and asked him, told him, your wife has been killed. then he responded oh, my gosh, is she dead? >> so and then after that i remember the police officers back in los angeles say he didn't even ask how she died, chris. that was a big moment we all remember from 20 years ago. >> exactly. and i remember that he said he cut his hand on some glass in the sing in chicago. >> right. >> all right, so from oj trying to commit suicide in kim kardashian's room to those tense moments before johnnie cochran and prosecutors christopher darden last night all was revealed so we re-lived the white bronco chase down los angeles freeway, we actually got to see just how close oj was to the kardashian family. at one point you could hear now chris jenner talking to khloe and courtney kardashian in simpson's funeral, nicole simpson's funeral. >> i can't believe she is gone. >> she was my personal angel.
i would have gone to rehab if it weren't for her. >> khloe, courtney, stop running. put away that candy. >> do you think he did it? >> oh, chris. she was terrified of him. >> last night's episode also reminded everyone that oj failed his polygraph test. most of the material from the mini-series comes from a book written by jeffrey tube inch's book, they called, the run of his life. the people versus oj. so we're going to breakdown his epic series more later in the show. but it is interesting, right? at least dramatically speaking how we all know are reliving what happened 20 years ago, guys. >> yes, it was in 1994, it was odd to see actors playing all of these people we got to know so well, 22 years ago. >> specially the cards ash yan clan, right? >> well, they had to throw that in, didn't they, chris, because of the popularity that far reality show, keeping up
with the kardashian's, they had to throw that in, kim and khloe. >> it wasn't a vital part of the movie or anything. >> not at all. >> it wasn't necessary but -- >> yes, but oj was good friends with their dad. >> it was also interesting to see all of these well known actors playing the part. >> cube inch gooding, jr. tough role to play. >> and courtney b advance, johnnie cochran. oh, he did amazing job. >> and john travolta signed up for this project, robert shapiro. >> yes. >> looked kind of odd. apparently the potential final game for one of the greatest nfl quarterbacks in the history of nfl football isn't the ticket selling you might think. why seats for superbowl 50 are selling for less than expected. and if you understanded what i just said, hit me up on twitter.

comes up? we will talk about that in the seven day forecast just ahead. right now, head today route 309 southbound. just after welsh rd. we have an accident there. and it is really slowing folks down. you can see the flashing lights, kind of toward the right-hand side of your screen, again, in is route 309 southbound, just after welsh rd. so, you might want to avoid that area. route 42, creek road, in new jersey, is building volume, but no delays just yet. and as we head out on to the schuylkill, and i-95, things have slowed down quite a bit since last time we checked. we take you now 20 minute on the schuylkill to get from the blue route to the vine. guys? >> thank you, 6:32. >> happening today, this morning, we will see bill cosby go back to the montgomery county courthouse, he will stand before a judge for the seconds day. >> all right, dave, bring us to up date at the montgomery county courthouse. >> reporter: court set to
start in about three hours. of course we'll see bill cosby's rival about the same time we saw yesterday, around 8:30, 9:00. here in norristown. the question is what will judge steven o'neil decide? we noel decide something. the question is, will he keep these charges in place or will he throw out the criminal sexual assault charges again? bill cosby, bill cosby left court yesterday around 5:30, after six hours of testimony from former montgomery county d.a. bruce castor. a key witness to the cosby defense team. cosby testified that he did not -- castor did not bring charges against cosby years ago because of court credibility issues, cosby's accuser former temple employee constant, castor said there was not enough evidence to show cosby had committed a crime. he also said, constant did not act like a victim of sexual assault, according to the police interview, and said that she would see lawyers
before going to cops. 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 was not necessary, but he was also quick to point out to the cosby defense team that he was not on their side either in this case. by the way we have legal analyst that is will break all of this down for us at 7:30 on fox 29 goodday philadelphia, and of course, we are waiting for the judge today to see what he decides, this case could never go to trial. that will may happen today. we'll see. back to you guys. >> every indication going to make the decision this afternoon, all right, thank you. 6:34, something really bad happened in south philly yesterday afternoon hit-and-run driver, mother and her children, they were stranded and injured in the street and the car just kept ongoing. >> yes, steve's on this story in south philly. at the intersection broad and dickinson. thousand it happen? >> mike, conditions a lot better than they are now. first of all the middle of the dale, not dark like now, and clear skies, not raining right now, but look, mike, when you are coming up this one way
street, dickinson toward broad, you don't have any per i have val vision to go up to the corner. same goes for the pedestrians. they had the light. you can see, there is from the he wide crosswalks here at broad street. so walking on the sidewalk along broad. and let's go to the surround veins video, plenty of it from three different cameras so far. this mother has the little one strapped to her chest in a harness, the five year old walking with her. the light, green, to yellow, to red, trying to get through it before it goes from yellow to red. already red according to police and witness and the surveillance video, they are looking up instead of looking street level. they slam into this family, the little girl flied across all the way to the side that we're on, and everybody runs out to help, as the car speeds away. >> the little girl, really scary and tramatic, 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. and that person is going to get caught. so that's good. but like they shouldn't have had to go to that point. i think that they should have stopped, obviously, it is just making things worse for them, just not good. >> well besides the surveillance video, look at this, the passenger side rear-view mirror broke off on impact. it was near the victims, and that i.d.'s the car the police say as red maroon 2001 honda accord. when they look at the surveillance video, talked to the witnesses everybody thinks that the driver likely female in this case, and as we go from the mirror pictures to the surveillance video, you can see the car drivers toward another surveillance camera, you can see the mirror missing, but in the the other thing, that we pointed out on the show plenty of times before. surround vale edges cameras in so many cases are hit-and-run or another crime always captures the front of the car.
and because only new jersey in our area, pennsylvania doesn't have front license plate in pennsylvania, no plate, like would you have if this car was a new jersey car. so pennsylvania lawmakers may want to consider just having front plates just to help police solve so many of these cases where surveillance cameras are so prevalent in today's society, and cars get away cars and crimes, always seem to have the front of the car, now, police if they had the plate, they obviously would track the registration, maybe driver of the car. right now they don't have the car. they would also like more surveillance video. so the car speeds up, dickinson, so if anybody is in south philly, and on dickinson, and has surveillance cameras, police would like to see if you have any video of this car, as well, maybe the back of the car going away, and get them plate or see where the car may have park or maybe turned on dickenson, that would help them finds the direction of where the driver went. >> of course we froze the video, just before -- it looks like the car hit the five year old first, steve, right?
>> yes, it was so graphic, the video, we can't show it to you. but it was horrific. and something you really need to see. it doesn't help a witness case, but pretty bad, and they are lucky they are alive. the driver is lucky, too if somebody leaves the scene after accident, fatal, mandatory prison time. >> the moms in serious condition, critical condition, though. and the baby that was strapped to her just has a scratch on her head. >> wow. >> lauren, what else have we got? >> governor tom wolf says ask for another money last year, fights for more money in this year's budget -- budget. will face the legislature next week, 356 million-dollar increase was part of a bipartisan budget deal, agreed by house and senate republican majority leaders, for this fiscal year, however, that deal has collapsed. pennsylvania state police looking into an alleged cheating scandal involving its

tax for month. tram rides are now the adjusted price. city law prevents the company from raising rates to cover the luxury tax, that means, riders either need to hand over eight -- 18 center drivers need to carry coins and count out 82 cents in change. that's a look at your top stories. back to you. >> all right, united airlines is allowing families with young children to pre-board again. starting february 15th, families with children ages two or younger will be able to board the plane before other passengers, the policy change, reverses a decision made in april of 2012. that forced families to board with everybody else, the company made the reverse to be more a tentative to passengers' needs. i have to admit, i didn't realize that wasn't happening any more. >> families with children, you get to board first. >> right. now it is group one, group two. priority. >> now they've rear verse philadelphia. >> nationwide data breach
