thank you. we begin with breaking news we have been following in the oakland hills where crews have pulled a group of people out of an overturned car. >> 15 minutes ago, we showed you the first pictures. today in the bay's pete suratos just arrived on the scene. this point, pete? >> good morning to you, sam and laura. just getting new details on the crash. we're here on redwood road. you can see that bmw, when it went throughxl that fence goin downhill, when this crash took place. but we are getting new details. this is according to oakland fire, they're saying it happened around 3:30 a.m. it was driving downhill and crashes through this fence. we're told four people were inside the car, two got out on their own, two had to beat extricated. they're in critical condition. as you get a look overhead of the crash scene in the oakland hills. this was a challenge for
firefighters rescuing these folks. we just got new sound. this is new sound from oakland fire explain some of the challenges earlier this morning. >> primary challenge was how the car came to its final resting location up against a tree. it uprooted the tree and the tree actually had moved and it was clean up against the tree. it was pretty significant sized tree uprooted against. we had to work around that and eventually we had to move the vehicle away from the tree to get the final extrication. >> take you back out here live. you see the bmw, the hazard lights flashing after that crash. this was a challenge as they mentioned. i want to talk about traffic concerns here on redwood road. from where we're standing at cre crestmont boulevard to skyline boulevard, this will be shut down as oakland police conduct the investigation to see what caused the crash so they can directly affect skyline highway which isn't too far from here. we'll have another update in the
next half hour. >> thanks for the latest there. let's hope the people are okay. >> 6:03. in the meantime, more breaking news that we're following out of the south bay this morning. where there's been a deadly shooting at a wienerschnitzel in san jose. bob redell has been live on the scene at first street. do they say what led up to this killing? >> reporter: no, that's still a mystery to the san jose police department, laura. the san jose police sergeant we spoke with earlier this morning while they were processing the scene here on first street said their biggest challenge is trying to figure out who is the person who shot and killed this man last night. this happened just after 10:00 last night. the 911 call came in as shots fired. when police arrived, they found a man in his 30s suffering from at least one gunshot wound. they sent him to valley medical center where he was letter pronounced dead. san jose police had been interviewing a person who was
with this man when he wasúf$ sh. >> does this appear to be random? >> don't really know that either, to be honest with you. >> tell me about the specific area of san jose, known for gang activity. >> yes, it is. >> does that play into the investigation? >> it could. it's certainly something we'll look into. >> police have not released any information, any description about the suspect, though they just issued a media advisory in the past three to four minutes and did indicate they had identified the victim and notified his next of kin. reporting live in san jose, bob redell, today in the bay. >> tragic news this morning. thank you very much. >> more breaking news. this one is a high-speed police chase in the east bay that ended in a crash and a mangled car. >> kris sanchez joining us live right near i-880 in fremont to tell us how it happened and the impact for drivers. >> reporter: well, the good news here is that the fremont alvarado on ramp onto 880 is now reopened.
this is where the car ended up. drive, though, the high-speed chase happened on southbound 880. there you see behind me, the driver was headed south. the chp was in pursuit. the driver was trying to take the exit ramp but missed, failed to negotiate, plowed through all of the grass and ended up on the on ramp. that's why both of those ramps for a moment were both impacted. you can see from the video here that the suv was mangled as it was being towed away. you might not be surprised to hear that the driver is at an area hospital, but once he's checked out, he's likely to end up in handcuffs. the officers out here tell me they tried to stop that driver for a traffic violation, which they would not say, specify what kind, but the driver took off at unsafe speeds. the chp pursued the driver until he lost control and ended up here on the on ramp. we know that the investigation is ongoing, but the good news again is that the traffic impact is starting to die down. in fremont, kris sanchez, today
in the bay. >> thank you so much. all new this morning, sweden's top prosecutor is dropping the rape investigation against wikileaks founder julian assange. that announcement came over night. he was accused of rape by two swedish women. prosecutors say she's dropping the case because there's no way to get assange to sweden in a reasonable timeframe. assange, who has denied the allegations from the beginningerse has been living in the ecuador embassy in london for the past seven years. he's also wanted here in the u.s. for publishing leaks military intelligence. jt for a missing 15-year-old girl. rene gray left home wednesday morning for school, but shy never made it. she tends hercules high school. her family fears she may be a victim of human trafficking. she's 5'", about 160 pounds. call richmond police if you have any information. an alert now for san mateo county homeowners, if you have homes that were damaged by winter storms, you until today, the deadline to apply for

road between sunol and fremont, so that crash and the closure as a result of that will cause more traffic to flow on 680 and mission. fortunately, it's a friday. we'll see the impact, but be aware you can no longer cut through sunol to fremont. over here, a crash and debris north of 85. approaching 237 as well. a lot of slowing has started to clear up a bit. more detail, one lane still blocked by the crash and plastic tubing and nails, it sounds like, across the roadway. you definitely don't want to get through that area before the sweeper does. back to you. >> that could lead to flat tires. >> 609. six people injured after a fire breaks out at the google developers conference. >> more on the cause, a kitchen aplienls that might have started the fire. >> plus, five years since facebook hit the stock market. we have fun home video for you as well when today in the bay continues.

pain they still five years after their daughter vanished. >> the first time i heard her speak live a video, so that was really hard because i had been avoiding that because it's been so painful. >> painful for the family. also painful for the jurors. several of them were moved to tears when prosecutored played a video of sierra singing in her bedroom. antolin garcia torres looked straight ahead the entire time the video was played in court. >> apple's ceo tim cook has been spotted around the company's campus test driving a device connected to his apple watch that tracks his blood sugar. sources tell nbc he's wearing a glucose tracker that could lead to future applications and make the watch a possible must-have for people with diabetes. in february, he told students in scotland about the device. >> if you have the foresight to buy some shares in facebook the first moment it hit the stock market five years ago, you have a pretty good return on your
investment. >> though at the time, it looked like a terrible investment. >> awful, just awful. the first day of trading, five years ago, was absolutely horrible. started out fine. five years ago yesterday, big celebration at facebook headquarters. then all kinds of hiccups and technical problems left investors wondering if their orders went through. historically bad day for the nasdaq and terrible for facebook's stock. things got better over the years. i don't think we could have guessed how good, from an opening day of $38 on its first day to $148 a share today. the markets recovered a bit thursday. don't be fooled. there's still a lot of worry out there. the economic policy uncertainty index, which is an index created by professors at stanford and northwestern, says economic uncertainty is as high now as it was during the great recession. as you might have guessed, they're pointing their fingers at washington. in fact, the index has only been hieing twice before. once during the fiscal cliff fight of 2011 and then the

money. >> made his dad a lot of money. >> kid is a genius. by the way, if you get into one of the top÷ ranked schools in te country, like i always state, or harvard, you think you would say more than yay. >> well, he sounded nervous. he said turn it off for a second. that'sable. you know? 6:17. if you're looking to beat the heat this weekend, we're going to need it. a lot of new moviesing theaters. ridley scott returns for alien covenant. a ship filled with couples sent toinize a new planet, but there's terror in space and they have to fight to escape. it's rated r. >> amanda steinberg is on lockdown in everything everything. the actress who gained fame in the hunger games portrayed a teen with a grave illness. she'll die if she leaves her house, but the boy next door has her testing outboundries. >> if you're looking for something kid friendly, check out diary of a wimpy kid, the

we start out with cool and clear weather as you get ready to head out for school this morning. taking the kids to school or to the bus stop, it will be a morning for long sleeves. then with all that sunshine at recess, the temperatures warm up, and this afternoon, taking off the jackets, most likely needing the shorts and short sleeves as it will be a very warm day for the valleys. looking live at the coliseum, 55 degrees. a nice sunrise there as well. if you will be making plans to head to the coliseum for the a's yam this evening, it will be perfect. it doesn't get better than this. a lot of sunshine, low 70s at first pitch, and then in the mid 60s by the end of the game as skies stay clear. making plans also ahead to the north bay on saturday for the rose parade, and this draws a huge crowd. so everyone making plans to go there. needs to prepare for some hot temperatures. it will be comfortable to start, as the time to parade starts rolling, but then look at how
the temperatures climb into the mid 80s by early afternoon. upper 80s as we go into the day. and san francisco stays nice. our high temps in the low 70s over the next few days and then it starts to cool down in the middle of next week. inland valleys, the cool down will be a lot more gradual. we're looking at highs in the 90s for the next four days. and then some 80s and some upper 70s will bring it back close to where we should be for this time of year. and mike's tracking more on that crash in nole. >> i just got world that we have our chopper overhead. we're looking at this, the first time i'm seeing these pictures. wow, we're told this is sunol. looks like the causeway over the sunol river there. i see where that is. we have two vehicles involved in that. that's why they have completely closed off sunol from fremont and using the niles canyon area. this crash and investigation currently going on. choppers overhead. you see the wires, it gives you a reference over the water there. no word on the extent of
injuries. we have that absorbant spilled out over whatever has leaked from the hood of both vehicles. from what i'm told, it was a head-on collision. this is a problem for the commute. let me show you where this is on the roadways. overall, things are moving well because it's a friday, a light friday commute. over here, alvarado -- niles canyon, is closed. both directions, we have heard, are closed. that's no longer a cut through. 680 will see more traffic. and we're also tracking this crash in mountain view. northbound 85 starts to improve. i think they may have cleared more than one lane now heading up toward 237. let's take you to waze. i want to show you you can get options around the slower drive through mountain view. a couple different routes. sunnyvale saratoga is the best according to waze, but you make your choice. wherever you're going, whenever you're leaving, check your phone, your iphone, your an dried, and check the waze app. join nbc bay area wazers. back to you.

he bolted before finishing the job. kari was shocked to learn he was unlicensed. so was the second contractor she hired from the site to finish the job. >> these services are not giving you pros, as i would call a pro. i think they're giving you people that are like a craigslist. kind of like anybody can list there. put their name up, hang a shingle, and there you go. >> thumb tack disagrees, tellis us in a statement when professionals sign up on thumbtack, they agree to abide by the law, including licensing laws. we wondered how many unlicensed contractors are on the site. we posted jobs. got dozens of bids, and checked for licenses. >> what you found by going on online is what we're finding too often. >> tonight, we take our findings to thumbtack as well as the state's contracting board to find out what they have to say about consumers getting ripped off. if you have a consumer complaint, let us know. 888-996-tips. or nbcbayarea.com/responds.

investigation and whatever work needs to be done, so right now, you cannot use it as a cut through. 680 and mission are your longer way around. fortunately, it is friday. so aside from those involved in the crash, the others can get by easier because it is a lighter flow of traffic around the bay. we do have one other issue that i'll watching as far as the route through the south bay. we still have slowing approaching 237. debris there all morning. sweeper trucks may be continuing their job. but it is friday, so i'm going to hand it over to kari because a lot of folks want to know about the weather. >> a big warmup on the way with sunshine and starting out with some cool temperatures. as you get ready to head out the door, let's look at the mic microclimates. cool in the tri-valley, only 49 degrees 47 in the north bay and san francisco now 53 degrees. highs today reaching into the low 90s for the theland valleys. south bay, 89. 81 in the east bay, and san francisco will see a high today

we're told that four people were inside of that car. two of them got out on their own. two had to be extricated. that took about an hour and a half. those two are in critical condition. here's some new sound from oakland fire telling us the challenges of rescuing the driver. >> last person to be extricated was pinned, legs were pinned underneath the dashboard. the driver of the car. the car was up on the side against a tree, so it was difficult to work on the vehicle. so it required us to dismantle the car around the patient so we could free the legs and get him extricated and to the hospital. >> take you back out here live. you can see the car there behind that fence following the crash. as i mentioned, we're here on redwood road. between kraes crestmont drive and skylive boulevard, this will be shut down as police are still on the scene to conduct the investigation as to what caused the crash in the first place. the areas will affect skylineway which isn't too far from here. this is still an investigation.

jose. the report came in as shots fired. when the police arrived, they found the victim suffering from at least one gun shot wound. they send him to valley med, but he was declared dead a short time later. he was with somebody. police have been interviewing this person about maybe what led up to the shooting. as far as motive, that's something they're not clear about. the san jose police sergeant pointedous this area is know for gang activity, so that will be part of their investigation to see if maybe the shooting was gang related. reporting here in san jose, bob redell, today in the bay. >> a lot of that investigation still to go there. bob, thank you very much. 6:35, and a developing story. there's real concern this morning that the norovirus outbreak in the south bay could be spreading to other counties besides just santa clara. nearly00 students fell ill at 14 different san jose schools. now, santa cruz county also reporting cases in its school
system. the stomach bug can cause things like vomiting and diarrhea along with other flu-like symptoms. >> more breaking news coming in to the newsroom on this friday morning. just a few hours, anthony weiner is expected to plead guilty for sexting with a 15-year-old girl. "the new york times" reports the former congressman and estranged husband of hillary clinton's aide huma abedin, will be in a manhattan courtroom today. he was investigated by fbi agents who found thousands of e-mails from abedin. then james comey held a news conference weeks before the election to announce the discovery and its possible link to the clinton investigation. it later turned out agents had reviewed those e-mails. >> some people living in eastern contra costa county right now are so concerned about inadequate fire funding they are reportedly trying to pay for a billboard to make a point here. the east bay times reports that a brendwood bases coalition is tries to raise enough money for a highway billboard to warn
people about that area which they say will be a pub safety dangerous zone. voters have shot down several tax hikes measures that were put on the ballots over the years. they want people to be aware that the cost of inadequate funding can have great consequences. >> tracking a couple major crashes. sky ranger is over the creek, niles creek, and there's the bridge. you see the reference, the niles canyon railroad there, the tracks. we're looking at this head-on crash and the effects of that on the roadway, completely closing it as chp continues to take measurements through the investigation. absorbant on the roadway, and they can't clear it until they have measured out everything. that closes niles canyon road. we'll show you where that is on the map, your cutthrough between sunol and fremont. then that effect on the map, so 680 to mission, that's your longer route, but being friday, we have a lighter of traffic.
still, the head-on collision, a big concern. we'll track the conditions of those involved as well. we see a smoother drive, a light backup through hayward and a smooth flow of traffic. we show you the south bay as well, and in the oakland hills, you showed that video of that crash that closes redwood road just past skyline over to 580. that's probably a clearer route over towards the warren highway. >> busy morning. >> really is. especially for a friday. if you have made it, it's time for a check of your weekend weather. >> time to try to find a place to cool down with the anticipated heat coming up. >> all about where you are and the type of weather you'll experience. today maybe you'll start out your weekend at the coliseum for the a's game and we'll have awesome weather. the temperature at first pitch, 72 degrees. a lot of sunshine, and it really doesn't get better than that. for tomorrow for the coast, we'll be in the low 70s.
