the afternoon when the 34-year-old wol, now identified as miriam carey tried to essentially infiltrate the white house by using her car as a battering ram. the secret service surrounded her with guns drawn but somehow she managed to maneuver around and took off. a high speed chase ensued through the streets of downtown d.c. and that's when police started spraying that infinity with bullets. now, the chase continued for over a while. while all of this is going on, there was a toddler in the backseat, strapped to the back seed of that black sports car. a capitol police officer tried to stop the woman as she gets closer and closer to the capitol gets airlifted to the hospital after his cruiser was badly wrecked. you can see a number of people just hanging out as this unfolded.

giving them the full load of missed pay when the government reopens. senate democrats say they will not support the deal to open the government on a piecemeal basis. >> this morning at 4:46, so many questions still after the chaotic chase and shooting at the u.s. capitol. andrew spencer has more as we try to figure out who miriam carey was. [siren blaring] >> [bleep] >> video shows the chaos when a patrol car crashes into the barrier. officials haven't been able to answer me questions about the 179, miriam carey, or her relatives. her family gathered. >> of course they're shocked. friends and family members, how this whole thing occurred. no one knows the exact circumstance of how this really occurred.
>> after the shooting that left carey dead, they searched her apartment. >> they said it is a sensitive are area. after running i have five to 10 minutes to get all my stuff and get out for the next eight or so hours. >> keep in mind, as you watch this, there is a 1-year-old child inside this black infinity. the driver strike as barrier, backs into a patrol car and than speeds away. officers open fire, not mowing about the child. police caught the driver a few blocks away, opening fire again, this time killing the woman. the 1 year old appeared to be okay. the chase started at the white house where the woman stopped the car at a security check point. she was later found to be unarmed but she used her car as a weapon, strikeing a secret service officer before speeding away. >> in indiana, a doctor faces criminal charges for pulling a gun on a driver.
the victim captured it all on cell phone video. doctor dobins pleaded not guilty. a screen grab of the video appears to show smoke coming out of the barrel. >> i'm sick ever since it happened. just sick to my stomach. if we can just go back and him, you know, like i say, flip me the finger instead of the gun, i would be a lot happier. >> records show dobins lost his medical license because of unauthorized prescriptions of oxycodone. >> this morning, illegal immigration will be able to get valid driver's licenses. california officials estimate nearly 1,375,000,000 illegal immigrations who apply for --

days to enjoy so the timing is good. 61 at dulles. 61 in gaithersburg. culpepper at 61. 59 in winchester. if you notice, there is quite a bit of humidity in the air and that is translating to a little bit of fog with the calm winds. be aware patchy fog could be a possibility but i don't think it will limit you. culpepper is down to a third of a mile, so watching that closely. two-mile visibility in manassas so some spots will see that fog. the wind has a westerly component today so we will stay in this warm sector. we have this very potent cold front across the nation's midsection today and that will likely trigger severe weather in minnesota and iowa. that is going to be heading our way. about the same time, the tropical storm will come up from the northern gulf coast and likely make a hook to the right. karen now producing winds 65
miles per hour. it is not going to be a terribly strong storm but it is going to be a big rain maker so lots of flooding expected for the southern states here. by the time it reaches our state, it will reach a lot of its punch and no longer be tropical but adding energy and lift and moisture in the atmosphere than that cold front will do, and that comes in on monday. the details today, partly cloudy and warm amount stray shower possible in the mountains of the otherwise, upper 80s. look at that weekend, temperatures in the mid 80s still. heavy rainfall possible on monday. dying down tuesday morning and feeling more like october next week. amanda? >> we're still watching route 50, this is going to be in shan tilly, virginia. we're getting word from our traffic tracker they're starting to clear the last pieces of a parts of this accident. just after sully road, all lanes shut down. it should be clearing soon but we will give you up to the
minute details on that as soon as we hear all routes are back open. route 50 eastbound, they will detour you at route 28. 66 might be a better bet you are headed eastbound through virginia this morning. 270 moving along, 72 miles per hour. fast for that stretch of high. still, delay free conditions. 95 is moving right along, as well. we got word that that earlier construction near fairfax county park way mass wrapped so you can see light conditions in both direction on that live shot there. heading back to the live maps, you can see the bright green coming in and out of newington. maybe a few residual delays there, southbound out of the beltway. really not too bad for this time of the morning. 395 between the beltway and 14th street bridge, delay free. i will send it back to you. >> all right, amanda. 4:52 now. 65 degrees often this friday. >> last night's "scandal" premier did not disappoint. plenty of fans are still talking about it this morning.
