5:30 am
joining us. i'm marcus washington. >> i'm laura garcia. that sig alert is happening for the eastbound direction. now we're finding there's a problem in the westbound direction as well. let's check in with vianey arana in for mike. >> let's get to that new issue that's starting to showcase itself in the speed sensors. there's a crash on the westbound side near the toll plaza. one lane is blocked. you can see it popping up on the speed sensors. this is in addition to the issue we've been reporting on all morning long. that's on the eastbound side after treasure island. there are two lanes now open, so traffic is crawling on by. three lanes remain blocked and there's no estimated time on when it will remain open. the latest chp report does look like they're hooking some vehicles onto a tow truck as of the latest so that could mean they'll clear that out a little quicker. as i was walking over here, i saw another issue pop up
5:31 am
possibly just behind that sig alert. i'll immediately go look into that as soon as i get off this report. i want to let you know, there's no estimated time as of right now. again, only two lanes are open. three lanes remain blocked along eastbound 80 right after treasure island. let's send things over to kari for a look at the weather. >> we start out this morning with a look at some of our clear skies and cool temperatures as we head over towards concord. we'll be in the low 60s at 9:00. we go from 61 to 81 at 2:00 and it continues to warm from there. we do have some very warm weather. as you get ready to wake the kids up and head out the door, a cool start but then a warm afternoon. livermore, by the time the last school bell rings, will be in the upper 70s. we'll talk about all of our microclimates and what's going on this weekend coming up in about six minutes. 5:31 right now. new this morning, tricks on the streets instead of treats. sideshows with dozens of cars
5:32 am
shut down south bay roads. >> several arrests are made along with those cars impounded. "today in the bay's" kris sanchez live in san jose. >> reporter: hi there. one of those sideshows happened at the intersection where we are. you can see the skid marks in the middle of the roadway. in the video, you can see how close those spectators get as they get out of their car and closer to the action. take a look. that was just one of three big sideshows busted by san jose police. the sideshow happened on gish road at 880, old bay shore freeway, where we are this morning. the chp said they heard chatter that drivers were planning on flooding the streets of san jose, perhaps even trying to shut down the freeway with their
5:33 am
stunts. the chp managed to keep the freeways open but then the action spilled onto it the city streets instead. on kertner avenue, there was a crash. santa clara county sheriff's deputies caught up with a sideshow driver who was trying to flee. the driver crashed but no one was hurt. in oakland on highway 101, this is one of several people arrested after trying to get away from chp officers. as of now, we know chp officers arrested at least one person and it sounds like san joep say police may have arrested two more. they arrested impounded cars from as many as five different locations and those cars will stay in the impound lot for five days. sideshows happen all around the bay area. a few weeks ago we showed you these large ceramic discs that contra costa county are going to make intersections less
5:34 am
appealing. sideshows pop up and dissipate really quickly so san jose used their helicopter to maximize what they could see on the ground. as soon as they spotted the sideshow activity, they notified officers. lucky thing here is all of this activity happened midnight, so likely after the families who were out for halloween festivities were already home for the night. kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> thanks so much. 5:34. new this morning, a flight recorder from a crash of an indonesian jet now in investigators' hands. overnight divers recovered it from the sea floor. it's critical in finding out what caused the lion aircraft that went down early monday morning, minutes after taking off from jakarta. 189 people were on board. a man accused in the dead

"today in the bay's" pete suratos is live from at&t park where fans are paying tribute to the baseball legend. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you, marcus. when you talk about willie mccovey, he was definitely a larger than life figure in the bay and beyond. we say this as he passes away yesterday. we're in front of mccovey cove. this is the statue everyone
5:36 am
knows about in front of at&t park. you see that growing memorial behind me. who knows, this could, of course, grow as the morning goes on. we're not just seeing the reaction here in the bay area, but we're seeing it across social media. let's pull up some of those reactions. this is just a handful of the reactions we're seeing. we want to start with barry bonds, the san francisco giants great, expressing sadness over one of his mentors in the game of baseball, saying he'll keep that tradition of giants baseball living forever in mccovey's memory. then a tweet from jesse jackson calling mccovey one of the all-time greats. another tweet by bill russell, celtics legend and bay native, expressing sadness over his passing. the other tweet from actor rob schneider, a bay area native, saying mccovey had the greatest swing of any first baseman who's played the game. as for mccovey's accomplishments, there are so
5:37 am
many. rookie of the year for giants in 1959. ten years later he was the mvp of the league. of course, he swung for more than 500 career home runs. nbc bay area did interview him about a month ago after he presented the willie mac award, named in his honor. he talked about his deep connection to the city of san francisco. >> it's just a great city. i fell in love with san francisco right off the bat. i didn't want to live anywhere else. and i didn't. everybody was nice. i used to go to a lot of events that off-season and everybody treated me well. took to me. kind of adopted me in a way. so, it was just like a magical time for me. >> reporter: mccovey will be truly missed here in the bay area. i want to point out, he was a giant for most of his career and
5:38 am
actually worked afterwards as a senior adviser for the baseball team. now, san francisco is, of course, paying tribute turning orange. we're actually back out here live. you're seeing that growing memorial. we're told the giants are planning a public memorial for mccovey. when we get those details, we'll bring them to you. live at mccovey cove, pete suratos for "today in the bay." >> no doubt if you live in the bay area you've heard of mccovey and heard one to ten stories how he's loved by so many people. thanks, pete. >> being here in the bay area, you would see him a lot. big legacy. moving onto decision 2018, the candidates in the governor's race making a final push for your vote. john cox making several stops on his bus tour today, including one in vallejo. democrat gavin newsom's team is
