6:10 am
point, which is university, and the airport area. so looking live from skyfox, where all traffic forced off at university, so if you are going to be headed to the airport, headed into south philadelphia, or even headed maybe down for an appointment, getting ready to take the kids down, to chop this morning, or university of pennsylvania, this accident is going to cause delays in your trip, i'll show you couple of detours, other ways to get around it when we come right back.
6:11 am
6:12 am
>> coming up on 6:12, the salvation army of eastern pennsylvania and delaware is deploying another team to puerto rico this morning to help with hurricane relief. staff and volunteers are set to depart from philadelphia international airport in fact just a few minute. they will deploy for two full weeks. they're distributing food, water, essential supplies, to areas hit hardest by the hurricane. that would be almost the entire country. >> look at. that will we do want to get back to the break news affecting traffic this morning. >> live look from the front seat of skyfox, eastbound lanes of the schuylkill expressway, all traffic forced off at university city. because of that fatal accident. that happened at about 3:00 this morning, down there, the passyunk avenue interchange, so again, all traffic coming into center city, the back up now begins back at 30th street, forced off here, into university city. we'll have the rest of the
6:13 am
details, and more importantly, a detour, when we come right back.
6:14 am
6:15 am
>> updating news, skyfox, overlooking the closure of the eastbound schuylkill expressway, early morning fatal accident around
6:16 am
3:00 this morning, involving a motorcyclist. closing all eastbound lanes, what we're seeing here, this is the forced closure, at university. forced off into university city. university of pennsylvania, children's hospital area, this is a mess to begin with, on regular day. going to the maps, going to show you the actual accident scene right here still investigate underway, but eastbound, just past that university ave. interchange. traffic is bumper to bumper already, from approaching center city all the way to university. live look, approaching 30th street. so even if you don't go all the way down to university, this is going to cause delays for everyone coming into philadelphia. headed toward children's hospital university city area, exit at 30th street. go around the station, and you can come into that university city area on the back side, using market street. if you are trying to get to the airport, south philly, or up and over the bridges, exit
6:17 am
for the vine expressway. ninety-five south, that will get you on your way. if you are coming from the suburbs, getting ready to head out the front door right now, maybe going to the airport, or trying to get into south philly, use the blue route from the get go switching into the airport, closure point, kind of choke point there, with no access from center city, to south philly, or the bridges. >> if you are coming from say the suburbs and @ law yourselves extra time, getting had towed on down to chop maybe for appointment, sue, make sure to give yourself plenty of extra time. pack snack for the kids.
6:18 am
>> spent dollars to. >> expect to be a hurricane, sunday morning shall maybe even into monday, little bit of uncertainty about that, but, it looks like we will have the next name on the list, and of course, after maria, which no one will ever forget, nate, is what will probably have, maybe even by 8:00 that's when we get the next update from the hurricane center. >> lehigh valley, mount pocono, place like that with very weak frontal system, notice clouds, probably won't get any rain. but it is not going to change our temperatures that much. very weak system. but things start to get unsettled as we head into the weekend. let's go to the seven day forecast, 83 today. eighty tomorrow. and then 82 on saturday. then we have to build in a chance of rain on sunday, on monday, and maybe even into tuesday morning.
6:19 am
today, added humidity, will feel like summertime once again. >> listen to this, sue, see if you take off tones this, 6:19. carolina panthers quarterback cam newton in the superbowl last year is taken quite a bit of heat this morning. all over comments she made to a reporter, jordan of the charlotte observer during press conference, why did i say she was a woman? you'll find out. >> em brass the physicality of his routes getting those extra yards, does that gave you a little bit of enjoyment to see him -- >> it is funny to hear female talk about routes like that's funny. >> is it funny? >> i can't believe he stepped in it like that. so what did she say? >> she said: i don't think it is funny to be a female and talk about route. i think it is my job.

6:21 am
>> no? >> no, no. let's go back real quickly to the schuylkill. because the cars finally being towed out of there. this accident happened 3:00 this morning. so almost three and a half hours old skins fatal accident, want to make sure they got all of the stuff they needed for their investigation, but caused quite the back up and so now i guess one step closer to clearing up the highway. >> is the cycle still there, bob? >> i believe that's the motorcycle thereon that tow truck. and there is the vehicle that was involved. >> i think the opposite, bob. both towed at the scene. >> sorry. looking at the chopper shop. i apologize. >> still have debris though from the motorcycle there. so they got to clear that out before the schuylkill gets cleared out. that's at university city, close to south street, drexel university exit. >> 62:00; we'll talk more about cam newton, all of that stuff coming up later.

6:32 am
let's go to the maps. again, here is the accident scene. again, eastbound, police are still there, they did tow away the car. they towed away the motorcycles that were involved. but the investigation is still underway. all traffic push off at university city. so getting ready to step out the front door coming into downtown, even causing problems on the vine expressway, because, again, these folks here all lined up trying to go eastbound, in toward 30th street. or maybe down towards the airport. children's hospital or university city exit for 30th street, and then you can gain access to market, and come into the back door here into university city. headed to the airport, head for the vine street expressway take it over to south 95 and be good to go getting down to the airport. leaving from the suburbs or king of prussia right now, headed into city, or headed down to the airport, don't do the schuylkill. go for the blue route.

6:35 am
is, when there is fatal crash, that takes high precedence, over even morning rush hour on the busiest highway around philadelphia. so you see, lot of state troopers here, at the accident scene. you can see right around a curve. still dark out, you can see, almost blind for people, seeing motorcycle, as we see one of the troopers leaving, so, we've seen second trooper lever as well. so i don't foe if there is fuel up there. you can see now that he's left we saw what look like little puddle where the motorcycle was. and motorcycles have 5-gallon gas tanks, this was a rather large harley, and it may have had some fuel spill which wouldn't have been a surprise, because you saw it on the tow truck, kind of mantled. so going into four hours now almost with this being shutdown, you know they want to reopen it as soon as possible, considering the tens of thousands of people that need this road open to get to the airport. for now remains shutdown. we will get right back into you, when we hear so
