Details on: PPL Center Melee, Man Struck by Tractor Trailer, and Another Coastal Storm

New Details About PPL Center Melee - Police officers trying to break up fights outside the PPL Center late Saturday night allege a pair of brothers made matters worse when they tried to interfere with an arrest.  The fights started after the Spring Break Takeover concert.  Authorities arrested eight people, most of whom face disorderly conduct charges.  Tune in to 69 News at 4, 5 and 6 for new video of the fights from witnesses.

Man Struck, Killed by Tractor Trailer - A man died after being struck by a tractor trailer in southwest Reading.  The accident happened around 10:30 a.m. Monday at Lancaster Avenue and Kenhorst Boulevard.  A witness told WFMZ's Katiera Winfrey that the man may have intentionally jumped in front of the truck.  Look for a live update on the Berks Edition at 5:30.

Coastal Storm to Bring Light Snow - They say that things happen in threes, and sure enough, the third coastal storm so far this month is set to rapidly intensify off the East Coast over the next 24 hours.  Unlike the first two however, this one will not be a direct hit for Pennsylvania and New Jersey, but instead offer a glancing shot of a little light rain and snow late today and tonight that will linger into early Tuesday morning.  Get the latest forecast starting on 69 News at 4.
