Philadelphia sports teams donate $50K to build trust for daughter of tank driver killed in I-95 collapse
PHILADELPHIA - Philadelphia is the City of Brotherly love and is a great example of how wonderful things can happen when you come together. In just 12 days, Philadelphia work crews finished reconstructing the collapsed portion of I-95 and reopened the roadway to motorists who depended on the critical roadway. Despite the success of the rebuilding, tragedy lingers due to the death of 53-year-old Nathaniel Moody, the tanker truck driver who died in the I-95 off-ramp crash that sparked a fire and the subsequent collapse.  Related Family members have identified a man they say was driving a tanker truck at the center of the I-95 fire and collapse as a local father.Family members described Moody as a father and experienced driver with a lot of experience. "He wanted to raise his girl to know what a good Dad was, to know what a hardworking Dad was," Issac Moody said. "He didn't drink, he didn't smoke, he damn-sure didn't use any drugs." RELATED COVERAGEOn Friday, the same day temporary lanes opened on the collapsed stretch of the roadway, officials announced donations to support Moody's daughter. According to Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro's office, the Philadelphia Flyers, Eagles, Phillies, 76ers and Union joined forces to donate $50,000 to Moody's family to build a trust for his daughter. The cousin of a truck driver whose truck flipped and sparked a fire that destroyed part of I-95 in Philadelphia is searching for answers.

"She was in tears." Plasse-Young’s car costs about $19,000 and she and her former daughter-in-law plan to get her car payments refinanced so she doesn’t have to struggle so much to afford it. "Thankful, so very thankful," Plasse-Young said in a statement.

'It's given her a voice': Local musician fundraises for Autism communication tools
TELFORD, Pa. - April is Autism Awareness Month, and a local musician is using his performances to fundraise in different ways, including for sensory toys and devices at his five-year-old daughter’s school."Their way of thinking is normal to them, it just looks different to us," says Ray Coleman, an Irish musician and father to Céilí, who was diagnosed with autism at age two."She wasn’t answering her name when we would say her name, not much eye contact, wasn’t playing with toys properly just wasn’t meeting her milestones," says Jaclyn Coleman, Céilí’s mom.Currently, Céilí is non-verbal, but early intervention, most recently at the Montgomery County Intermediate Unit, is teaching her other ways to voice her wants and needs.She started with using pictures, and is now moving to an AAC device, which looks like an iPad. Through apps, Céilí can communicate about almost anything."What she wants to play with, what she wants to eat , it’s allowing her to identify colors that she may not be able to identify," says Ali Melman, Céilí’s Early Intervention Autistic Support Teacher at MCIU.Céilí’s parents say she started to use the device at home and it’s a game changer."We could tell that she wasn’t feeling good, and she started hitting ‘My belly hurts, my belly hurts,’ on her iPad," says Jaclyn.However, these devices are not readily available.The Coleman’s say they quickly learned that they are not only expensive, but Céilí’s took nine months to come in.

More than 70 large dogs at risk of being put down if not adopted, fostered by next week: ACCT Philly
These images from an ACCT Philly Facebook Live show dogs in need of foster or adoptive homes to be saved from possible euthanasia.  (ACCT Philly/Facebook)PHILADELPHIA - The need for a new animal holding facility is putting dozens of dogs at risk of being put down, according to ACCT Philly. The agency is Philadelphia's only animal care and control provider that helps the community with an open intake of animals. According to the group, a second shelter needs to be temporarily created to hold dogs exposed to canine flu for up to one month. As recent cases of canine influenza continue to spread quickly, ACCT Philly says it will need a different place to hold dogs exposed to respiratory viruses. With an average of 100 dogs coming into the shelter each week, ACCT Philly says it cannot close intake services as no other organization can handle the influx of animals. MORE LOCAL HEADLINESAccording to the nonprofit, they must house sick dogs in a separate space in the building, but the temporary space is only able to hold 50 dogs. There are currently 120 dogs that need housing, which means about 70 dogs will need to find placement by Monday, April 24 in addition to dogs continuing to come into the shelter. "There is no good time to do something like this, but unfortunately, with the number of dogs who are getting sick, we don't have a humane alternative," ACCT Executive Director Sarah Barnett said.
