drive toward 237, but east 237 getting over back to 880. another crash on the shoulder. that might affect your approach to the transition. a live look towards free month and we'll show you how traffic slows. you can see the dense traffic. the earlier traffic break caused this. we'll track this closely and also fog in the north bay, but you have a much more zra mat tick scene with that deadly crash. >> very much so. breaking news we've been covering this morning. take a look at the scene of this accident. three people killed after a late night high-speed crash in the north bay. it happened a little after midnight on sir francis drake boulevard at the entrance to the samuel p. taylor park near point reyes station. the video shows a tangle of metal against the trees. authorities say it was a toyota corolla. the victims in the car were all young male adults. the chp closed both directions
of sir francis drake boulevard. it's back open now. "today in the bay's" pete suratos will join us from the scene shortly. a richmond man is behind bars accused of murder. police say he ran down an employee who tried to stop him from stealing wooden pallets. it happened yesterday afternoon at the true world foods warehouse off 880. our nbc chopper was there overhead as you see in the video there as both scenes were developing. police say this white truck being towed away is the murder weapon. 27-year-old kadim edwards is in jail without bail. police have not released the name of the victim. they're still notifying family. flyers that critics say are only intended to do one thing,
inspire rate. posters were put up around campus targeting ethnic studies professor rabab abdulhadi. the posters claim she's, quote, collaborating with terrorists because of her sympathy for the palestinian cause. they refer to her with #jewhatred. the school quickly removed the posters. students call this an unwelcome message. >> it's pretty hateful. >> there's already enough bad going on. now sfu students have to worry about this. >> the university president immediately respond and issued a letter to what he called vandalism. he said, quote, let me be clear, this is not an issue of free speech. this is bullying behavior that is unacceptable and won't be tolerated on campus. the group behind the poster has targeted other teachers around california. students plan to speak out publicly against the posters. we're getting more details
about a san rafael man trying but failing to detonate a bomb inside a colorado police station. police say david ansbury left a backpack containing cell phone, wires and powder outside a police station. he was arrested in chicago this weekend after surveillance video captured him buying actually the equipment, cell phones he allegedly used to try to trigger the explosives. back under the spotlight once again, judge aaron persky. you certainly remember the name with his association with the brock turner case. now he's being criticized again forgiving a lenient sentence to a local college athlete. persky sentenced former stanford swimmer brock turner for sexual assault. opponents believe this case now is very similar to the turner case. it involves a player by the name of keenan smith. he's a football player at the college of san mateo. he served a month in jail, one month, for throwing his
girlfriend to the ground and beating up a bystander who tried to intervene and stop him. since then prosecutors say smith has skipped out on community service. >> the fact that judge persky clearly sent a message that football was more important than violence against women. smith's attorney says smith was a no-show for community service because he had a football game that day and he's complying with his probation requirements. there is going to be a fund-raiser tonight in berkeley in hopes of raising enough money to rebuild the first congregational church. last month flames badly damaged that church. tonight's benefit concert takes place at st. mark's episcopal church. hundreds of residents in one solano county neighborhood are being told to boil their water following a water main break at green valley water treatment plant. people who live north of green valley road and reservoir lane are being told to boil their water before drinking, freezing
ice or even washing dishes. the break caused a loss in water pressure which impacts water quality. hundreds expected to attend tonight's grand opening of an east bay art display that's already generated quite a good deal of conversation. the 55-foot steel sculpt tour is called truth is beauty. it appeared for the first time two years ago at burning man. that statue sits near the san leandro b.a.r.t. station. some commuters have raised concerns and eyebrows about the nudity. tonight's lighting ceremony scheduled for 6:30. as we talk about art in its many forms, a bold work of hart could be creating quite a spectacle at a small san francisco park. that's if it gets the green light. later this week, san francisco's rec and park commission will review plans for a art installation in hayes valley. that installation would involve two geometrical light sculpture, the small one waivering 700 pounds. it will be placed at patricia's
green at hayes and octavia. if approved, they'll be blaise for a full year. >> a lot of great art exhibits in the bay area. 6:08. want to get out and about, today might be the day. >> we're watching a little fog across the north bay. looking pretty good. every now and again fog drifts by the camera. 45 in the north bay and 48 in the peninsula. generally speaking we've got mild conditions out there, once the sun comes up. plenty of sunshine. that will lead to a warmer day. 74 for the north bay. same deal for the tri-valley. low 70s for the south bay and mid 60s for san francisco. temperatures get warmer the next couple days. i'm tracking rain by monday. let's talk to mike right now and see what he's tracking. >> we're focusing on fremont because that's the only area with anything unusual. this tuesday showing a nice flow of traffic. we'll zoom into southbound 880,
south from the dumbarton bridge. everything moves well until you get to the approach. warren avenue, dixon landing road. that's where the traffic jams up. the earlier crash blocks the fast lane. they need another tow truck to clear the final vehicle. that's why you're seeing the slowdown start. as the build happens coming from fremont into milpitas. the south bay itself shows outstanding in a positive way, from 105 to 85, a 20-minute drie at the speed limit for the entire area. drive times coming towards the bay bridge. 19 minutes from highway 4 down to the maze. that's the upper eastshore freeway, 11 minutes off fisher ranch road from highway 4. the majority of that slowing at the ends approach towards the bay bridget self. the metering lights are on guys. back to you. a significant day today. day two in the jury selection for the man accused of
==anim== =nt/i== it's this time of year when we start talking about halloween. we're watching temperatures warm up over the next couple days and tracking some rain. it all clears out by halloween and kind of a spooktacular forecast. 60s by halloween. >> looking over at our drive times. no delays reported for the transit system. 48 trains on time for b.a.r.t. at the limit. 21 minutes for 85 from san jose
in through cupertino and in through sunnyvale. a good drive right now. >> green good. thank you very much, mike. another 160 potential jurors screened today for the murder trial for the man accused of kidnapping and killing sierra lamar. there was a loud gasp in the courtroom yesterday when those there learned the death penalty trial could last six months or longer. in santa clara county court many were dismissed for hardship. the rest were given a 30-page-long questionnaire. they were asked what they thought about dna. if they watched tv shows about sexual assault and their views on the death penalty. they also had to answer questions about whether they could still consider someone dead even if there's no body. >> the prosecution is going to have to deal with the issue that they do not have a body and they're going to want to question a bunch of potential
juro jurors, can they return a verdict of guilty when they don't have a body. >> at one point the defendant said good morning everybody, thanks for being here. and smiled. a san francisco judge today will hear arguments over the fairness of a $10 billion payout to volkswagen owners. volkswagen is supposed to buy back or repair close to 5,000 cars as part of a settlement in its diesel'! s scandal. some car owners believe the settlement doesn't go far enough. at least two dozen people are expected to address the judge. at sfo travelers will be met by representatives of samsung. >> as we've been reporting, it is against faa rules to carry a galaxy note 7 on an airplane
even if it's turned off. so samsung is going to meet travelers who either don't know about the rule or aren't listening to help them switch out their phones before the flight. samsung does not want to be responsible for in-flight emergencies or even worse. as we reported monday, the buyout of virgin american airlines is taking longer than expected. alaska airlines says the process is moving forward, working with the justice department who looks over mergers and acquisitions to avoid man opinionlition and make sure the consumer is protected. a recent study found consumers are hurt by recent airline mergers. in the last ten years we've gone from nine major airlines to five. if the alaska virgin deal goes through, it will be the dominant airline on the west coast. >> speaking of travel, a deep data dive into air b&b shows
service does not take business away from hotels. the results were presented at a recent hotel conference. the hotel industry says demand this year was higher than ever. what seems to be happening, the report authorities say is airbnb rules are filled when hotel rooms are full. for instance, you might not have visited san francisco during beta breakers because there weren't enough hotel rooms. but now because of air b&b they had rules. the social security administration says america's checks will go up by .3%. it's a cost of living adjustment. not enough money to buy a cola. here is the good news, nothing hurts retirement -- retired folks worse than inflation. the check is not getting bigger. but you're not spending more money either. >> have to live within their same means. >> or go back to 1945 to buy the
coca-cola. >> a lot of retirees having to go back to work. 6:17 right now. what about going to the white house. cupertino will be poured at the white house. president obama's final state dinner will feature three california wines. we know how to grow them here. today celebrity chef mario vitali is pairing it with local wines, a zinfandel from cupertino's ridge vineyards, another from napa valley and santa barbara county. >> everyone speaks the language of wine there. >> go south bay. >> exactly. >> go sunshine today. we have more of that coming in. warmer temperatures into the weekend as well. we're looking at rain returning by monday. in the meantime it's about the sunshine. we have fog across parts of the north kba. for the most part we are generally clear coming across the bay bridge and the golden
gate bridge as well. you can see the shot from san francisco. we don't have fog there. a few high thin clouds generally across most of the bay area. once the sun comes up around 7:00, we'll see plenty of sunshine. right now temperatures a cool 44 degrees in napa, 48 in palo alto and 50s for the rest of the bay area. expecting 70s to return to the bay. a little warmer than yesterday, back into the low 70s for san jose. mid 70s for walnut creek. 64 for san francisco. there are the clouds i'm telling you about. right across the coastline, a thin veil of cloud cover. once the sun comes up, we'll see plenty of sunshine and temperatures warming nicely. seattle and portland will continue to see rain over the next few days. for us, it's not until the weekend when our pattern starts to shift. we'll stay dry by saturday and sunday. by monday this system pulls onshore. this will be the first of a series of storm systems. we go back into this dreary wet
pattern for next week. monday, tuesday, wednesday and thursday, a chance of rain in the forecast each and every day. while it won't be an all-day rain, there is at least a few systems coming our way for next week. here is a look at that seven-day forecast. in the meantime, enjoy the sunshine and the warm temperatures. 70s and 80s for the next couple days for inland vamlies. let's switch gears and talk to mike and track the morning commute. >> we're looking at folks slowing around the bay. tuesday is building slowly around most spots where we had this unpleasant slow stretch here from the top of the screen coming down through fremont south of the dumbarton bridge to dixon landing road. still has the slow lane blocked. a number of vehicles on the shoulder. this is a distraction and the build there, 680 just fine getting in and out of sunol. if you have the option, choose the 680 route. we'll show you the camera that's right about there. it shows a slower drive toward
the truck stop and tesla. those are your landmarks. in the south bay, northbound routes showing the build. this is a late start for the south bay commute. we'll track it as things continue as well as the peninsula. in the north bay i want to point out we have our live camera showing san rafael and the glow from the lights. there's some fog in the area. keep that in mind. again, sir francis drake has reopened after that deadly crash at samuel taylor park. we'll continue to follow that with pete suratos. >> thank you very much, mike. keeping lifesaving drugs from going bad. the new intention to protect epiben. just days ago bob dillon won the nobel prize in literature. one problem, the academy that gave him the honor can't seem to find him. severe allergic reaction froeatd
>> it needs to release or absorb heat if it's hot or cold. we have special materials that keeps the interior temperature at about room temperature. >> the epishell is available for free orders for about $40. about the nobel prize for bob dillon, so far you might say his response is blowing in the wind. at this point we can only assume he knows he's won the nobel literature prize because the swed dish acted me has been knock, knock, knocking on his door. so far he's missing in action. the academy has decided to lay low in the hopes that dillon will be there to accept the award and the cash payout on december 10th. we'll see. >> so many classics there. this is pretty classic. a new effort to preserve dorothy's ruby red slippers from "the wizard of oz." >> the red shoes are currently on display in the smithsonian's national museum. they're nearly 80 years old and
are fading. they've launched a campaign to raise $300,000 to restore the shoes. two women right now say they were sexually assaulted at a cal fraternity party over the weekend. the latest on those investigations coming up next. >> reporter: pete suratos at point reyes station where a deadly car accident at a state park takes the lives of three young adults. i'll have the details coming up in a live report. >> reporter: the judge at the center of the brock turner sexual assault case now accused of handing a light sentence to another college athlete. i'm bob redell. we'll have that story coming up. standing by herman. up next, we hear from melania trump for the first time since the controversial tapes involving her husband were leaked.
woman: how do we protect them from $4 billion in new cuts to california schools? man: vote yes on proposition 55. woman: prop 55 doesn't raise taxes on anyone. man: not on working californians, not small businesses. no one. woman: instead, prop 55 simply maintains the current tax rate on the wealthiest californians. man: so those who can most afford it continue paying their fair share... woman: ...to prevent new education cuts... man: ...and keep improving california's schools. woman: vote yes on prop 55 to help our children thrive.
woman: vote yes on prop 55 and i'sam bck (toss anthony) good tuesday morning. thanks for joining us. i'm laura garcia-cannon. >> i'm sam brock. we are a couple weeks away now from halloween. >> that's right, buy your candy. >> lots of candy on sale. >> pumpkins, costumes. >> the next couple of days is going to be perfect. at least the ground will be able to dry out so you can get your pumpkin and it's not all soggy on the bottom. we are looking at warmer conditions as we head to the next couple days. there is rain on the way by monday. we'll sort it all out this
weekend. sunrise over san jose. 53 degrees this morning with a few high clouds out there. it's cool in the north bay, back to 44 this morning in napa. later this afternoon we'll warm up in the mid 70s and mid 60s on the coastline. in the meantime, let's talk to mike. >> we do have an issue bogging down. this is over in fremont, southbound 880 south of the dumbarton bridge, starting at mowery toward dixon landing road. this is a slower spot approaching warren. there's a crash just about mission boulevard on the shoulder and possibly blocking the slow lane. distraction enough to set off the slowing. 680 a much easier route. 680 typical from pleasanton in towards sunol. all the cars or many of them heading down into the slowdown
approaching milpitas. i want to show you the travel times in the peninsula. heading north past sfo towards san francisco only seven minutes. all the routes are at the limit. back to you. >> thank you very much, mike. breaking news we've been covering overnight. this is all that's left of a car that slammed into a tree in the north bay killing all three people inside. it happened near the entrance to the samuel p. taylor point at point reyes station. that's where we find "today in the bay's" pete suratos. it looks like they must have been traveling at a high rate of speed. >> reporter: good morning to you, laura. a very tragic accident. chp is still investigating this matter. we are on sir francis drake boulevard. the scene has since cleared. we want to show you guys that video. you can see the car is simply split in half following this accident. according to chp, this happened around 12:09 a.m., three young male adults inside a toyota
corolla driving westbound, losing control and ending up in a ditch on the eastbound side hitting two poles and a couple of trees. i asked chp what may have caused this, high speeds, dui situation. here is what they had to say? >> it's still unclear. at this point we're investigating trying to figure out what happened. they did leave the roadway at some point when they struck a tree. so we're still looking into that right now. >> at this time chp is not identifying the individuals in those cars. they still have to notify the family. we're live at point reyes station, pete suratos for "today in the bay." >> awfully tragic scene there, pete. thank you very much. an investigation is under way after two reported sexual assaults this weekend at uc berkeley. two women told police they were at off-campus fraternity parties when they were assaulted. police say those two cases are not related but happened friday night and saturday morning. because investigators are still looking into the claims vlgs
they have not released much information as of yet. in the meantime changes could be coming to san jose state. the president says she's looking to improve communication after students complain they weren't informed early enough following two alleged sexual crimes on campus. she released an open letter expressing concerns on when to alert students about reported sexual assaults. students we spoke to say they are happy the issue is being address. >> it's good to hear feedback from the administration, that they are taking steps to investigate it further and to deal with it. >> a community meeting is also set to take place soon to address additional concerns. there is fresh criticism on a very familiar subject for the judge who sentenced brock turner. organizers who want judge aaron persky removed from the bench are raising concerns about a prior case also involving a college athlete. "today in the bay's" bob redell joining us from palo alto where
this athlete is expected in court in a matter of hours. bob, get us up to speed. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, sam. his name is keenan smith, a sophomore who plays football at the college of san mateo expected at a probation hearing to explain why he missed one of his required community service days. seen here in a recruitment video has already served a month in jail for throwing his girlfriend to the ground in a parking lot in sunnyvale and beating unconscious another person who tried to step in and help. the judge who sentenced smith to that month in jail is judge aaron persky, the same judge who sentenced former stanford swimmer brock turner to six months in jail for the sexual assault of an unconscious woman. the behind behind the effort to recall judge persky believe the smith case is another example of judge persky going light on
college athletes. >> the fact that judge persky clearly sent a message that football was more important than violence against women. >> i feel like my client has been kind of caught in the crossfire because of the political nature of everything going on with the recall effort. >> reporter: smith's defense attorney tells us her 20-year-old client is complying with his probation requirements including domestic violence education classes, but she admits he was a no-show for one of those community service work days due to a football game. as for judge aaron persky, because of the attention surrounding the brock turner case, he has voluntarily removed himself from criminal cases and now works only civil. live in palo alto, bob redell, "today in the bay." new details this morning in the bizarre twist in what police call a premeditated ambush. it now appears the suspect connected to a police shooting in vallejo is also linked to a
2-year-old boy shot just hours earlier nearby. adam powell can be seen in this surveillance footage walking into a starbucks. investigators san jose he intended to shoot and kill two officers inside, but his weapon malfunctioned. he then took off running. police say the officers shot powell a block away as he tried unjamming the gun. hours earlier at this home powell's 2-year-old son adonis somehow got ahold of a loaded gun and shot himself in the n k neck. this morning the child is in intend sef care in oakland. the family is devastated. >> he's smart. the best ittal boy you can imagine having. he's like my best friend. >> in the meantime powell, the father, is listed in stable but critical condition. 6:36 right now. we have some more answers for you regarding the police shooting in san francisco last friday. we now know the identity of the
man who shot an officer in the head. 26-year-old nicholas mcwherter of pacifica shot an sfpd officer and was killed in the shootout that followed later in the evening. sources tell nbc bay area mcwherter had a history of mental issues. last friday officers responded to a report of a man, quote, acting erratically. they say when they arrived, mcwherter fired at them, critically wounding officer downs. officer downs remains in stable condition. decision 2016. if kids could vote, hillary clinton would become the next president of the united states. 153,000 students across the country cast their ballots in a mock presidential election. the results just released saying clinton received 52% compared to donald trump's 35%. if you're thinking, so what, kids can't vote? this mock election predicted the
outcome of every race since 1964. >> so the kids, that's the source there. these mock results coming as both candidates are gearing up for their third and final showdown. >> take's edward lawrence joins us from washington, d.c. this morning. i would imagine both candidates are preparing, edward. >> reporter: both candidates are preparing for the debate. we have to see if donald trump would honor those results. governor mike pence says he will. donald trump has not said he would or wouldn't. we just don't know. hearing the words quid pro quo a lot over the next two days. donald trump saying the election process is rigged. now saying e-mails show corruption. donald trump says newly released state department e-mails show a scandal he calls worse than watergate.
>> the fbi documents show undersecretary of state patrick kennedy made the request for all three classifications as part of a quid pro quo, in other words, a deal. this is felony corruption. >> reporter: in one exchange with the fbi, the undersecretary asked to change the classified label on one of hillary clinton's e-mails when she was secretary of state. the state department would then reciprocate by allowing the fbi to place more agents in countries where they are presently forbidden, specifically iraq. the fbi and state department deny any wrongdoing. >> no quid pro quo, no exchange here. >> reporter: as part of trump's latest push to sway voters, his wife melania went on cnn blaming billy bush form trump's lewd comments about women caught on an open mike. >> he was lead on, like egg on from the host to say dirty and bad stuff. >> meanwhile, senator bernie sanders tried to reach out to trump supporters playing off his rigged election claims. >> the system is rigged in favor
