Penn State's annual 46-hour dance marathon simply known as THON will be rocking the Bryce Joyner Center in State College all weekend long. Around 700 Penn State students are official "dancers" that will be on the floor without a break for the entire event. There are 1000's more who lend direct support and those who will simply stop by the stands to join in the fun. The event benefits the Four Diamonds Fund at Penn State Hershey Children's Hospital which helps fight childhood cancer. Fundraising is done throughout the year. I'm sure you've seen PSU students out canning at an intersection near you during a weekend or two. Since 1971 the event has raised $101 million; last year alone they raised a record $12.37 million. You can watch the event LIVE below. It ends Sunday at 4pm.

UPDATE: Penn State THON sets new record. Raises $13,343,517.33 in fight against childhood cancer.

Pennsylvania State Police say that last week's 100 car pileup on the Pennsylvania Turnpike between Willow Grove and Bensalem was caused by a variety of factors. Some motorists were simply driving too fast and there were slick road conditions. There was also poor visibility caused by sun glare and tire spray. Officers expect to issue at least 10 citations for driving too fast for the conditions. The incident injured 30 people and caused traffic delays for hours. The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission has begun a full review. It's after-incident review will take several weeks to complete.

There is no official cause of death yet for the young woman from Broomall found in her car near 30th Street Station on Thursday morning. The medical examiner will have to wait back on toxicology results following the autopsy of 22-year-old Nadia Malik. Those results could take six to eight weeks. Malik had been missing since February 9th. Her car had been ticketed on February 10th a few blocks from the train station, but towed to the current spot on the 14th because it was blocking plows. The vehicle racked up several more tickets. Police say that it would have been hard for anyone to see the body in the car without opening it. Detectives are awaiting extradition of Malik's boyfriend, who was arrested in Ohio on a probation violation. They want to question him in the case. The couple have two children together.

Partly Cloudy, temperatures in the low 40's this evening in Center City.
