woolwich township gloucester county. all northbound lanes are closed. they're using the shoulder on the northbound side to allow traffic to squeeze by. however, they had shut down the entire northbound side starting around 3:30. because of that the backup extends beyond off into the fog. not exactly sure how far but i'm going to guest estimate at least a mile maybe more. we lose sight of the vehicles in the fog. you have a fire truck on the shoulder of the southbound side. other than that it's all clear. we don't have an estimate because they have to first tow the vehicle out. in the past two seconds they have stopped traffic on the shoulder. now traffic is completely stopped on the northbound side. we'll go to jessica boyington in the traffic center. she'll have more on the traffic woes. >> good morning, jesse.

"nbc 10" jesse gary is live in woolwich township. jesse, you said at some points they let cars by on the shoulder but then they stopped cars at other points. >> reporter: tracy that's right. intermittent. right now traffic has started creeping along the shoulder on the northbound side but it's intermittent. at some points they do stop it. i have new information to tell you. i talked to a witness, the person who was in the car that was right at the crash scene
right after the crash happened. this person tells me these are two separate accidents both involving rear ends. the first case involved the big rig that is no longer here it's been towed away. that big rig rear ended a bus, which is still here on the scene. and while traffic had stopped for that accident, two people in that accident were not injured, while traffic had stopped for that accident another car, which you see right where the firefighters are standing that car came up on the accident scene, braked hard and the truck you see that's smoldering was not able to brake and it hit the car without braking and caused the fire that has engulfed the truck so the two people miraculously, both the driver of the car, the driver of the truck got out with head injuries a little dazed, but they were able to walk away from all of that damage you see there.
firefighters are right now trying to tap out the last of the fire that's going on in what i'm calling truck number two. the car parts that are smoldering. they have to kind of get to the base of those car parts and get water right at the base actually tap out the flames completely. so that's the situation right here. again, traffic starting to sneak by on the shoulder again on the northbound side of the two lanes that are closed. they're using the shoulder southbound. all lanes open southbound. again, two people injured. we don't know the severity of the injuries. i'm told they're able to walk away dazed from head injuries able to walk away from all of this. live in woolwich township gloucester county. let's go to jessica boyington with a complete overview in the traffic center. jess, good morning. >> good morning jesse. we're still monitoring this accident scene. as you can see for the pro dominant part of the morning we had all lanes closed which is exit 1 and 2.
every once in a while they allow a lane to scoot by over into the shoulder. not giving much relief to anybody driving on the roadway at this time though. especially so close to rush hour you want to take 295 to get by because they're still even cleaning up the accident scene. there's reduced visibility all over the area. wet roadways as well. just try to avoid it altogether. take 295 northbound to get by. we're out on 202 whereby you can you can see northbound, southbound use extra caution. speaking of fog, not causing any airport delays at philadelphia international airport. you might want to call to see if your trip or commute might be affected. vai. thank you, jessica. today is primary day across philadelphia. the polls open up in 30 minutes. one of our biggest races is the democratic nominee for mayor. the six democrats facing off in today's election lynn abraham, nelson diaz, jim kenney doug
oliver milton street and anthony hardy williams. today's winner will face melissa bailey in the november general election. "nbc 10's" matt delucia is live at the polling station in rahwnhurst. what's being done to get young people out to the polls and is there one thing being done? >> reporter: yes, the youth vote can make a difference if they decide to come out and vote. young and involved says they've been working to get those under the age of 35 engaged through phone banks and the like. the last mayoral election had only 20% turnout. making things complicated is no republican candidate has been elected in the city.
>> one key issue young people say is on their mind right now. >> education. schools are number one. you have to fix philadelphia schools. you'd see that every young person in philadelphia that now is probably going to move when they have kids they would stay. we'd dramatically change the dynamic of this city. >> education has been discussed in many of the debates and forums over the past few months. of course people will be deciding who will be the next mayor of philadelphia. again, the primary is today. the general election will be in november and one of the polling locations right here we saw some of the workers going in here just a few minutes ago. they're getting ready to get everything going. the polls open across the city at 7:00. just under 30 minutes now. live in rhawnhurst i'm matt
delucia. >> 6:36. the focus may be on the mayor's race in philadelphia but we're watching seven other contests. all seven philadelphia city council seats. voters will choose council members from ten districts plus select seven at large candidates. voters can pick no more than five candidates from each party. now the second district which covers southwest philadelphia and parts of south philly has been the most hotly contested race. incumbent kenyatta johnson faces ori fybush. they can weigh in on universal pre-k. students from the pre-k program in southwest philadelphia got in on the action. they symbolically voted yes on the ballot measure. the ballot includes a nonbinding referendum on whether the school commission should be abolished.
now montgomery county republican county commissioner bruise castor wants his old job back. he served as montgomery county d.a. from 2000 to 2008. he faces democrat seventy-three kevin steel who is number two in the office. d.a.furman said she wasn't seeking a third term so she could run for common pleas judge. you can count on "nbc 10" for coverage on primary day. see the app and track the results. now your "nbc 10" first alert weather with meteorologist bill henley. showers overnight. fog starting things off this morning. some thick fog in the area. the fog will disappear. still a chance of showers in the afternoon. in fact a possibility of thunderstorms. it all clears out of here tonight. much cooler weather is ahead. not today. it will be another steamy day. showers in allentown, 57 degrees. look at the fog for northeast
philadelphia and atlantic city dense fog in both locations. you can cee lo clouds over the view from shawne in this morning into the pocono mountains. in and out of the fog in the pocono mountains. thickest fog, coatsville. zero visibility. blue bell got a bit thicker there. dense fog along with millville, atlantic city. that may slow down airport operations in atlantic city first thing this morning. the showers, they're spotty right now. light showers in berks county and into montgomery and rich land getting a few rain drops. on and off showers light in the allentown area. keep an umbrella handy. we could see storms take shape. just a chance of that happening today. 79 degrees in the pocono mountains. summer like temperatures in allentown. cloudy start for doylestown trenton, mount holly. late day storms are a possibility for cape may, atlantic city and dover. dover up to 82 degrees while
wilmington hits 81. showers will be spotty this morning. a chance of some late day storms as temperatures warm into the 80s for westchester and swedesboro. we get the storms and are around the afternoon commute time. nice weather on the way. wait until you see the seven day when i'm back in ten. >> nice weather on the way. okay. right now when you leave the house make sure you take your umbrella and maybe some extra time because the fog and we're following that problem on the new jersey turnpike. >> we also want to see what else is going on in the other majors. let's check in with jessica boyington. jessica, what can you tell us? >> what we can tell you is that there is good news on the new jersey turnpike. you can see on the northbound side between exit 1 and 2 which is in between 40 and 322 they are allowing that right hand shoulder to get by. all lanes still closed. this is an intermittent closure. at the same time we are allowing this lane to go through. that doesn't mean it will be like this this morning.
as we clean up the accident scene you want to take 295 too get on by. especially since we're so close to the heart of rush hour. as you can see on the schuylkill expressway on the conshohocken curve starting to slow down. 18 minutes headed westbound from the king of prussia area. 17 minute trip if you're headed from the blue route up towards the vine street expressway. eastbound lanes right there. you can see some slow go. we do have good news for mass transit. all service resumed and normally for amtrak new jersey transit and septa. we'll keep our eye on the new jersey turnpike accident and the reopening of those roadways coming up. thank you, jessica. rethinking tactics. what president obama is doing to make sure that your neighborhood doesn't look like a police state. >> army guy, steve, quite a hero. >> he saved not one, not two, but three people stuck trapped in a burning car.
what's amazing is bill was telling us that sunrise for an hour now, but you wouldn't know it. >> it's quarter to 7:00 and this is what it looks like. you'll face some fog if you're heading out the door. bill has been tracking it all morning. denser in some areas. bill? >> center city low cloudiness and fog too. it is socked in. that's a live view from the lowe's hotel. thick fog not only in the city, especially in some of the western suburbs. right now zero visibility in coatsville and down to quarter mile for much of the rest of the area. see scattered fog in the pocono mountains. that's a view from shawne in the pocono mountains. check out sky view lodge. you can barely see the view. the flag is moving on the left side of the screen. little bit of a breeze. we will see temperatures climb into the 80s this afternoon but
big changes ahead. got the seven day coming up. police departments across the country can no longer count on receiving military vehicles and weapons from the pent gone. president obama announced the new restrictions during his trip to camden which highlighted the efforts of the police force there. the change means federal agencies will not issue local departments certain armored vehicles grenade launchers and other high caliber weapons. the president said equipment like this can give the public the feeling that law enforcement is, quote, like an occupying force. last fall the "nbc 10" investigators revealed these kinds of weapons stocked by police in our area. the investigation tracked seven of these mine resistant vehicles to police agencies in bucks, montgomery and delaware counties. the feds also gave the philadelphia police department an armored truck and 255 automatic assault rifles. in the last three years new jersey police have received more than 15,000 pieces of military equipment while delaware police received nearly 24,000.
you can read more about the president's announcement and its local impact right now on the "nbc 10" app. just about 6:47. this is new video this morning, and if you're not by your screen, take a look at this. come look at this. it shows the man rescuing a crash victim after a fiery wreck in nbcorth carolina. three people were trapped. the good samaritan in the red shirt jumped into action. he saved all three people who were trapped. that man is a u.s. army captain. people at the scene say he's a hero. he says it was just his duty o help. government vehicle safety regulators are taking a closer look at complaints from some nissan drivers. the government is investigating about 130,000 nissan versa cars after getting complaints about suspension problems. the agency says the owners complained it could lead to tire punctures or brake line damage while driving. no one has been killed. nissan has not issued a recall.
emergency communication officials are trying to figure out what went wrong with this story. a pregnant mother needed help called 911, but she couldn't get where she needed to be. >> yeah. this is quite interesting. the woman said she had to jump through hoops because her call was rerouted to another city. here's what happened. she was playing with her 2-year-old son at riverton memorial park in burlington county when she accidentally hit her head fell to the ground and snapped her foot. her call went to the nearest cell phone tower in philadelphia and then transferred to camden instead of burlington county. then she says the dispatcher told her to call the police herself. >> cleaning blood off my phone to hit the dial. i got through and everything was good. >> three days after the accident julie gave birth to a healthy daughter. she underwent surgery. she said she hoped the situation serves as a lesson for when similar situations might happen in the future.
>> let's look at what's ahead on the "today" show. >> for that we say good morning to savannah guthrie and willie geist. good to see you both. >> good morning. nice to see you. straight ahead on the show this morning, talking about fears of more violence in waco texas, following the deadly biker brawl. we'll be live with new threats and what police are plan to go do about it. also ahead, an under cover rossen investigation. dangerous parasailing accidents. wait until what you see happens that our safety expert calls the most frightening thing he sees. >> day three of matt's tour de red nose. he'll check in and introduce you to some of the remarkable people he's meeting along the way when we get started on tuesday morning. vai and tracy. >> i loved yesterday when meredith pulled out. that was funny. >> yeah. the deer suit trick never gets old. >> that was cool. >> classic television. thanks, guys. we'll see you in about ten minutes. >> all right.
