5:14 pm
[ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. . connecticut avenue, excuse me s back open in chevy chase, maryland, tonight, after a deadly crash shut it down earlier today. it happened near bradley lane. a car ran off of the road and hit a tree. the police say the passenger was killed and the driver was taken to the hospital. no word what caused that crash. the beltway is back open for the evening commute after a four-vehicle crash this morning. the car changing lanes set it off and hit a box truck and the tractor-trailer here. it ran off the side of the highway and hitting a jersey wall, bouncing back on to the road and hit an suv and flipped over, spilling a load of cucumbers.
5:15 pm
one person is hurt and is expected to recover. >> we know what caused a deadly bus crash in virginia. according to a report, the bus driver was severely fatigued and driving a bus when he lost control. the report revealed the bus company and the federal motor carrier safety administration failed to maintain safety regulations. >> and taking the wraps off of what many people have dubbed the beltway ufo. the experimental aircraft got the nickname after drivers spotted it on i-270 last month and began snapping pictures and tweeting what they saw. the mystery is now over and we got a look at what the the future of the u.s. military's plane might look like and tom fitzgerald has more. you talked to the people behind this. what did they think when they heard people calling yet a ufo?
5:16 pm
>> reporter: their first reaction was oh, no, what kind of an alarm did we create here? and that is quickly replaced when they realized not everyone thought it was a flying saucer. what it is is something more interesting than the unmanned drones we have come to know and that is mixing the latest in high tech aviation technology and fiction brought to life. this is what the future looks like. the navy calls it the x34647b and that is not what folks who saw it rolling down in june called it when they called 911. >> a ufo, i mean, i don't know. >> reporter: the navy put the plane on the flatbed for the trip to maryland, never guessing shutter bug drivers would put it on twitter. >> is this a ufo? >> no, we got a good laugh about it. we didn't go out of our way to publicize it. >> reporter: for the first
5:17 pm
time, the navy is pulling the -- off of it and they hope it's the first of a new wave of unmanned military aircraft. >> this is one of those that say -- a demonstration program and it affects the interest and imagination of a lot of folks. >> reporter: it's flown by computer. if it loses contact with the air traffic controllers, it flies back and just like a homing pigeon. calling it a drone is a bit of an understatement. a stealth aircraft will take off and land on aircraft carriers and so far, the navy won't say what kindef payload. >> this is what you will see at a navy and air force base in the next decade. >> reporter: while it has new technology and maneuverability, the one thing it doesn't have is the ability to outrun financial realities.
5:18 pm
the tighter pentagonnabilities are putting pressure on the creators. >> each and every one of us are taxpayers, so it's not somebody else's money, it's our resource together. >> reporter: on sunday, the estimated $800 million aircraft made its first 35-minute flight at the river. the officials say they want to prove the x-47-b is an investment and not just an expensive experiment. the real test for the x-47-b is going to come next year in 2014, and that is when the navy will try to actually launch and land this aircraft on an actual aircraft carrier. now, because this is an experimental aircraft, the x-47- b that we saw today probably won't go into production. but, as you heard the admiral sat say, it's likely in a decade, these aircraft will share jet space with the traditional jets manned by
5:19 pm
pilots. laura? >> and that is some fascinating stuff. thank you. and let's go to our region again today. >> we had the big thunderstorms that moved through the district earlier. we're just basically seeing the biproduct of that. a couple of storms to the north of us new that have become severe. i want to show you and get to sentinel radar. the yellow boxes there, we call them the thunderstorm warnings, the actual warnings, you know, we don't necessarily do it county-by-county anymore this is into howard county and south of 70 there and northern sections where 97 comes in and and that is still severe. the next storm here into clarksburg, you see this rain right here right along 270. this is a very, very heavy downpour as well. the storms are moving quite slowly, too and about 15 miles
5:20 pm
an hour. can you see here the track is to the north and to the northwest with the weather. another strong storm hasn't gone severe but into prince william county and this is going right across brentsville now and this is looks like most should stay south of monasses and dale city for now. if it holes together, it will move into fairfax county and bring some heavier rain. some scattered thunderstorms and i want to break down, too. and up on 70. it's not severe. again, severe thunderstorm warnings for montgomery and frederick county. and that is going to go until 5:45 p.m., another severe thunderstorm warning in effect for howard county until 5:30 and heavy rain, dangerous lightning, wind gusts sometimes, more than 50 miles an hour and some fairly large hail, a possibility of these storms, laura. >> all right, guess we could --
5:21 pm
we made the rain and we'll take what we can get. >> this runs off quickly. >> yeah. >> and then it's gone. and we'll talk to you more, with more details and weather coming up. thanks. coming up tonight, michael phelps makes history. >> and members of the women's gymnastics team do something that hasn't been done since the late '90s. we'll have details for you. lindsay. coming up from redskins training camp, an update from day 5 and a special redskins rapid fire with the guy who is always chilling. you know him better as -- and that is coming up as the news at 5 continues.
