5:00 am
in coming up in about seven or eight minutes as we head to mike, monitoring the roads and the rails. >> because they're both moving pretty well. i'm happy to report, the traffic on these roadways, no major slowing. a little build out of the altamonte pass, and also in the north bay, seeing some of the radar activity travel through. so look at that. vallejo, still reporting some damp roadways on the road weather index. nothing dramatic. we have also a couple crashes. i think it might be the same incident reported on either side of 980. no slowing there. i'll continue to get updates as chp does arrive on the scene, and on the rails, no delays. b.a.r.t., muni, all on time. caltrain, remember, on time right now, but we do have schedule changes that we saw yesterday, so people may have to adjust. >> thank youerary much. have to adjust to this as well. breaking news, recovery in santa clara. a driver plunged a car into the pool of a home there. >> everybody is okay, but bob redell is joining us with new
5:01 am
pictures we just got moments ago. what a scene down there. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, sam and laura. the driver says that he took too big of a turn and was falling asleep when he crashed through two fences, a metal gate and a wooden fence, into the backyard of this house on calabasas in santa clara. you can take a live look at the camera we have above the pool. you can see, he plunged right into the deep end of this swimming pool. it happened around 3:00 this morning. now, santa clara city fire department released photos that shows what it looks like. looks like it's a white -- behind the wheel was able to escape. was unharmed. not hurt. that's according to the fire department. our understanding is that he was given a field sobriety test and that he passed. that he was not arrested by the santa clara city police department. now, as i mentioned earlier, he said he was dozing off. mishandled, misjudged the turn
5:02 am
here. lost control of his car. the homeowner was not here at the time. not clear if they're even aware yet of what happened and it's going to take more than a tow truck to remove the car without damaging the pool given that it's submerged. it could be possibly requiring a crane. reporting live here in santa clara, bob redell. today in the bay. >> quite an effort to get that out. thank you. it's 5:02 on your tuesday morning. not surprisingly, classes are canceled at a san bernadino elementary school. a combination of grief, heartache, and confusion for those in that southern california community trying to understand why a gunman went into his estranged wife's school and shot and killed her along with an 8-year-old student. authorities say the gunman, 53-year-old cedric anderson, walked into a san bernadino class room caught by karen smith and shot her point blank and without warning. two young boys were also hit by the gunfire. one, an 8-year-old boy, died. no update right now on the condition of a 9-year-old's
5:03 am
injuries. anderson then turned the gun on himself. paints last night talked about more control. >> we have not talked to anybody at this point that knew there was that dynamic or he was a potential threat to the school. >> i'm sure the school office felt safe with him. i'm sure they let him in without even a question. so it just goes to show that everybody needs to be checked. there can't just be an open-door policy to anybody, unfortunately. >> incredibly painful situation yesterday. made more so by the fact this is a community that is still bearing the emotional scars of what happened about a year ago in san bernadino. of course, the site of one of the worst terror attacks in u.s. history. >> much closer to home, a live look at san jose's valley medical center this morning where authorities are reporting some kind of peeping incident. last night, santa clara county deputies tweeted out that a 25-year-old of san jose had been arrested for peeping. so far, deputies have not
5:04 am
indicated if the man was a hospital worker or just what the men did to spy on patients. >> the search continues this morning for a missing teenager in fremont. this is kalen glass brg, 15 years old. she hasn't been seen since last thursday night. she's considered at risk. keep an eye out for her. authorities in the east bay fear there may be more victims after recent arrest of a former school worker. he's accused of sexual crimes against children. police last month arrested 60-year-old reuben gonzalez. he's accused in a string of crimes against four young people over a 15-year period. the victims all lived at his home. gonzalez worked for the west contra conta unified school district over six years in various roles. >> part of why we're putting the media release out is because if there are other victims, you know, they have the strength to come forward. >> gonzalez is held in martinez on $46 million bail.
5:05 am
>> coming up right now on 5:05 on your tuesday morning. right now, santa clara county facing tough criticism this morning after launching their new independent medical examiners office with top of the line badges in silver and gold. it's the price thag that has people talking. the badges will cost taxpayers over $700 for one badge. that's three to seven times more than those worn pie most law officers. many are calling the badges excessive. >> i would never invest that kind of county funds for a symbol. it's not a piece of jewelry. it's a symbol of law enforcement orientation. >> county says badges are important to be able to identify themselves at crime scenes. >> it's not just badges bringing reports of big spending. the board of supervisors may pay a big price for a makeover. the santa clara county board of supervisors wants to rebrand. on tuesday's agenda, they may propose to spend more than a
5:06 am
million dollars on public relations up grades. the goal would be to hire a pr firm to help the county's image with citizens. >> they could be taking planning power from livermore, they agreed to support a bill that would create a new authority. that new authority would plan a connection between b.a.r.t. and tri-valley rails or a new connection with the san joaquin county. b.a.r.t. extension to livermore has been planned since the 1970s. good tuesday morning. it is 5:06. as you get ready to head out the door, we're tracking some light sprinkles, but the roads aren't that wet. you may have to turn on the windshield wipers and we're going to see the rain off and on. let me show you what to expect as we go through today. still some showers, cloudy skies. some very light rain today. now, as we head into tomorrow, going to see more of the same. and then we'll have a better chance of some measurable rain later tomorrow evening, going to start to see the rain moving through north to south. this is 7:00 tomorrow evening.
5:07 am
and we'll start to see this rolling on into the peninsula as well as the east bay and the south bay by late tomorrow night. and we will also still see some lingering showers throughout the day on thursday. so expect it to be very wet. off and on showers for the next couple days and you just want to be prepared for it all. we'll talk about what to expect as we head closer to the weekend. that's coming up in a few minutes. i know it's easter weekend so you have plans to get out there, and you want to wear a beautiful dwresz. well, i'll let you know what you may need to put over that in a few minutes at 5:11, a look at the temperature trend, and mike starting out with two crashes in oakland. >> that's right, but i'm listen for the dress report and also for my bonnet. a smooth flow of traffic in the south bay. east bay, focuses on the area right around the maze. we talk about two reports. one on 980, but it does turn out it's not 980 over here near the nimitz.
5:08 am
it's over here off the 980 and 580. that interchange has one lane blocked by a single-car car crash. i was able to put that detail here. getting away from the maze is where that is. 16 minutes to the bay bridge. 14 minutes up past the coliseum and in toward the downtown area, and a nice easy flow of traffic on the rails. just remember, caltrain does have some schedule changes. >> thanks, mike. >> coming up next, 5:08. secretary of state rex tillerson headed to russia today. on a plane at the moment. a live report on washington on who he's going to be meeting with. >> it can only be called a debacle. we'll look at the united airlines passenger situation with the latest details. plus, it was a moment that silenced at&t park. buster posey hit by a 94-mile-per-hour fastball during the home opener.

5:13 am
ground to fight a common enemy, that's i. also to find a consensus on syria. syria at the top of the agenda this morning, with the secretary of state rex tillerson talking to g-7 countries and arab allies in the country. tillerson heads to russia after blasting the communist country for their ties to the syrian president. >> it is unclear whether russia failed to take this obligation seriously or russia has been incompetent. but this distinction doesn't much matter to the dead. >> the secretary of state clarified the u.s. position on a number of issues at the g-7 summit in italy, which ends today. >> we must eliminate isis. g-7 support will be critical to stabilize syria, we will need the g-7's direct participation. >> the white house backing that up from washington. >> if you gas a baby, if you put a barrel bomb in to innocent people, you will see a response from this president. >> i thing it is clear that we
5:14 am
see no further role for the assad regime longer term. >> the russians have dug in over the past few days, supporting bashar al assad, calling the u.s. an aggressor. >> i think secretary tillerson's message to russia in the end is going to be this is not the obama. >> the open opposition to the russians may have caught them off guard. this meeting with the minister is going to happen tomorrow. however, secretary of state rex tillerson will be in moscow in about two hours. the greeting at the airport should be an inas to how the rest of the trip will go. reporting live in washington, edward lawrence. back to you. >> a lot of eyes will being. thank you. >> thank you, edward. >> right now, you were mentioning a lot of people talking about this. out growing after a paying customer was wrank yanked from a flight because he refused to give up his seat. >> united dealing with a pr disaster. >> absolute disaster. seems to make it worse, united
5:15 am
does, with tone deaf statements, including the claim the passenger refused to volunteer his seat. you have seen the video by now. probably from several angles. a man with a ticket and a seat told he has been random lad selected to leave to make way for deadheading united crew members. witnesses say he explained he was a doctor and that he needed to get home. in its initial statement, united said the man refused to volunteer, which is an oxymoron, no one can refuse to volunteer. then, united called in the chicago authorities. one of those officers has now been suspended and the errors continued. chicago police in a statement said the man injured himself when he fell. and united doubled down with a public statement in which united's ceo said he was sorry the passenger had to be reaccommodated. thousands of people on social media rolled their collective
5:16 am
eyes over the word reaccommodated. that wasn't video of a man being reaccommodated. munoz, by the way, was named pr communicator of the year just last month by pr week magazine. the judges said he transformed the fortunes of the beleaguered airline. true story, as people compare this to they disaster. munoz used to be anative at pepsi. there are still enormous aof questions. what did united tell the chicago police. would they have responded the way they did if they knew they were rejecting a paying customer to make room for an employee not removing a belligerent and dangerous passenger. and who was the passenger? we know he was taken to the hospital, but not more than that. i want to ask another question. what would you have done? s loudly objected. many videoed. that's helpful, but is there some point when they came for the man in 18-c where you would
5:17 am
have stood up and said, hold on, if you need a seat so badly, don't beat another human being. i will get off the plane. >> did people know the situation of what was going on? >> they did because this had been a long drawn out situation wherenited said this plane is not going anywhere until we get four volunteers. then they started picking random people, three of whom got off. >> okay. and they needed it for their own united people? >> correct. they needed to get to the destination to fly another airplane. >> i understand he's said he was a doctor and needed to get home. >> he says. we don't know much about this guy. that's the next step, who is this person? >> i'm sure we'll find out. >> yeah. >> to answer the question, yeah, i think not one person on the flight did do what you just asked, which was to -- other than the three you mentioned, volunteer to give up their seats. let me say this, you are in complete awe and shock at what you're seeing. sometimes that can freeze you in the moment. you can't absorb what you're watching.
5:18 am
but we did see the reactions. they were screaming, this man is bleeding. once someone starts bleeding, stop what you're doing. >> take my seat. i hope, i hope i would do that. >> all right. that's a talker this morning. >> refresh. so is this, by the way, because there was a scary moment at the baseball game that we were at. we're going to get to that right now. the giants home opener was everything fans could hope for, besides the gorgeous day, the giants won. they beat arizona 4-1. i think larry said you were it good luck charm, right? >> he asked me to come back today. a superstitious sport. >> thanks in large part to the error by the diamondbacks with the bases loaded, that blunder gave the giants a 3-1 lead. matt moore pitching a solid eight innings and that held up for the win. >> look out. >> oh, gosh. just hard to watch. a moment of fear for giants fans and players. star player buster posey hit in the head by a 94-mile-per-hour
5:19 am
fastball. posey stayed down and then eventually he left the game. team says he'll be re-evaluated today, but he luckily did not suffer a concussion. he's expected to return to action soon after the game, the manager pointed out there's added concern whenever posey does return to the field. >> he's a catcher. so now, he's even more at risk, if he's catching, takes a foul tip. >> for some fans yesterday, it brought back a game in 2015 when posey took a hard foul off his mask in florida. he was taken out of that game as well. he returned the next day after passing concussion protocol. i have to say, as a mom of a little leaguer, i just sit there and pray the whole time. >> tell them don't play catcher. >> he's little. >> they don't pitch 94 miles per hour, but they're getting there. >> we as about as nice of a day as you could possibly imagine for the ball game. >> today, we'll have a few
5:20 am
sprinkles moving through. it won't be as bright and sunny, but then again, the game will be at 7:15 this evening, so it won't be bright and sunny. as we get a look at what you're going to see as you head out the door this morning, we start out with some busy conditions in oakland. and a little bit of some mist and drizzle. it's not raining really hard out there. but we are going to see some spotty light showers moving in, and next few days will be very unsettled with some off and on rain. as you get a look at the seven-day forecast at the bottom of the screen, you'll see we'll have more rain drops over the next couple days. and right now as you step out in oakland, it's 56 degrees. in san jose, 55 degrees. and 54 in palo alto and in san francisco. highs this afternoon reaching the mid to upper 60s today. so won't feel that bad. you'll still need the long sleeves throughout the afternoon. some peeks of sunshine and up to 65 in danville and vallejo, 64. 62 in san mateo, and in san francisco, expect a high of 58 degrees in the outer sunset and
