is where a 19-year-old man has died and they are sending out crime scene cleaners to come and take care of the final parts of the scene here. but the investigation continues. here's what we know right now. according to the police chief here in danville, an suv with several teenagers and young adults were driving down glen road which is very close to san ramon valley high school when a 19-year-old man made the split second decision to jump onto the outside of the vehicle and take a ride. he jumped on the driver's side, traveled less than 100-yard according to the police when he lost his grip on the outside of the suv less than 100 yards fell off. he died from hitting his head, getting run over or a combination of the two. the coroner will determine that. police are still sorting it out. they don't know how fast the suv was going. they say it doesn't appear to be a case of car surfing. they say it didn't look like that or ghost riding, any of these things that are popular
with the younger crowd right now. it was a tragic accident. the coroner will determine the cause of death. he was 19 from the city of alamo. his family is going to need to be informed of what happened. >> thank you, anne makovec in danville. four people were hit in oakland last night in shootings. the first was 9:00 at arroyo recreation center a man and teenager injured. an hour later another person shot in an attempted robbery near the berkeley border. just after 11:00 another person shot near market and san pablo. that person now in critical

control over it. >> the driver whose truck hit the fans was not hurt and is not blamed for the deaths. a concord man is in custody suspected of planting pipe bombs at a city park. the concord police bomb squad was able to safely detonate all three explosives after they were found last month at newhall park. police say an informant supplied information last week and that led investigators to the montana drive home of timothy david willson on saturday. >> they contacted him as he walked away from the residence. they determined he was under the influence of a controlled substance and they arrested him for that. they contacted a judge in contra costa county and secured a search warrant. >> police say a search of willson's home turned up gunpowder and other materials consistent with the pipe bombs found at the park. willson is in county jail in martinez with bail set at $730,000. federal agents investigating a fire that gutted a post office in sonoma

california is in line for 1 to in$2 billion out of the $10 billion that's in the bill to keep teachers from being laid off. it's not clear how much jobs will be saved in california because the state budget hasn't been passed. the federal funds should start arriving later this month if a budget is approved. special election set for tomorrow that could alter the balance of the state senate a runoff for the 15th district seat previously held by republican abel maldonado. it stretches from southern santa clara county to santa barbara county. republican sam blakesly an assemblyman from san luis obispo got the most votes in june. he faces democrat john laird a former assemblyman from aptos. if laird wins it would put democrats within one vote of a two-thirds majority in the state senate. that two-thirds is needed to approve budget and tax increases. it's 6:12.

lights. which is a good sign. we have been watching because, you know, a lot of kids go back to school so we may see heavier traffic at the bay bridge toll plaza than we have been seeing the past couple of months. so far that's not the case. san mateo bridge nice and light. same thing across the golden gate bridge. and 880 if you are commuting that, thank you to my producer, as you can see, upper deck looks good. accident in santa rosa southbound 101 at highway 12, big rig involved. cleared to the shoulder and it's a nice ride through petaluma as you commute towards mill valley where we have another live camera. that is your traffic. for your forecast, here's tracy. >> hey, thanks, elizabeth. forecast for this morning, cloudy skies, drizzle, delays at the airport around one hour. let's get to the good stuff. later on today sunshine, temperatures warming up, mid- 80s in concord, 87 fairfield, 87 livermore. slightly cooler close to the bay with 68 in oakland today. 76 in vallejo. 75 san rafael. and just near 80 in napa and

down glen road when a 19-year- old man made the split second decision to jump on the outside of the vehicle and take a ride. he jumped on the driver's side, traveled less than 100 yards according to police when he lost his grip and fell off of the suv. he died almost instantly from hitting his head or getting run over or a combination of the two. the police are letting the coroner sort that outline out. police are still trying to figure out exactly what led up to this as well as how fast the suv was going. they say that this does not appear, though, to be a case of what's known as car surfing. they say it's more of a planned event when somebody would try to ride on top of the car, that this just appeared to be a 19- year-old who decided to jump on the side of the car to take a ride. he called it just a split second decision that led to a, quote, horrible tragic accident. now, the coroner is going to have to determine again the exact cause of death and identify this young man. all we know right now is that
he was 19 years old and from alamo which is a nearby town here to danville. we have also heard reports that maybe the group of young people was looking for a party at the time. but that's all we know. juliette? >> all right, anne makovec. thank you. also, three separate shootings within three hours last night in oakland. a total of four people hit. their conditions ranging from serious to stable. the first shooting happened just before 9:00 p.m. last night near arroyo recreation center. a man and a teenager were injured. about an hour later another person was shot in an attempted robbery near the berkeley border and just after 11:00 another person shot near market and san pablo. that person now in critical condition. eight people are dead, a dozen more injured, they were in the mojave desert to watch the california 200 race outside lucerne valley. that's about 100 miles northeast of los angeles. the race was on federal land when a truck in the race flew a
jump, lost control and went into the crowd. the bureau of land management says it was up to the race organizer to make sure it was safe. but no one cannot spectators from standing right beside the racecourse. the father of one of the victims was worried about that. >> i told my daughter to stay back, don't get close. most of the race had a border to where you stood behind to keep people back. from what i understand this did not. i talked to a deputy sheriff. he said this was one of the worst conditions he had seen, no blockage to stop the people. he even said kids were trying to touch the trucks as they went by. >> a complete interview can be seen late there are morning on "the early show." the driver of the truck was not hurt. he is not being charged in connection with the deaths. all right. 6376. a concord man is in custody suspected of planting pipe
bombs at a city park. the concord police bomb squad was able to safely detonate all three explosives after they were found last month at newhall park. police say an informant supplied information last week. that led investigators to the montana drive home of timothy david wilson on saturday. >> they contacted him as he walked away from the residence. they determined he is under the influence of a controlled substance. they arrested him for that. they contacted a judge in contra costa county and secured a search warrant. >> police say a search of wilson's home turned up gunpowder and other materials consistent with the pipe bombs found at the park. a neighbor told the contra costa times officers had raided that house a few times in the past. wilson is at county jail in martinez with bail set at $730,000. federal agents are now investigating a fire that gutted a post office in sonoma county. this fire burned for almost 7
hours saturday in healdsburg. the fire chief says the flames were tough to fight because the fire had made it way into the roof line of the building. at this point, it's not clear how that started. two firefighters were injured but they are expected to be okay. a san jose elementary school will start the new semester on time this morning despite a destructive fire on campus that happened just weeks ago. kcbs radio's matt bigler joins us now from trace elementary school to explain how the san jose unified school district has pulled it off. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you guys. yeah, this is a pretty amazing story. it was just last month there was a huge fire in this multiclassroom building right in the middle of the campus. this morning, for the first day of school, it's now been completely removed that rubble cleared out that would have been a safety hazard for kids. it's been fenced off and students will be going to school for the first day of classes this morning. a lot of them will be going to these portables. they are just across the way that you can see. but across the street, this is where the school district has
set up basically this compound of portables so the students can return to the same campus and still continue to go to school while the building is under construction. a few minutes ago we saw welding going on, on fence across the way. they are rushing to make sure it happens in time for students. we spoke with the school superintendent with the san jose unified school district. he says they have been able to pull this off with a huge outpouring of support from the community. >> still receiving donation both from the community and from a different business that has come in. the teachers received 100 gift cards from office max so that they would be able to go out and buy materials to resupply their classrooms. >> reporter: the fire that happened here just after the 4th of july last month, that is still under investigation. they determined the san jose fire department determined it was arson. so far no suspects have been arrested. they are still looking for tips
from the community. if you know of someone who may have been connected to this fire, the fire department would really appreciate that information. we also want to mention that classes are also resuming today in san francisco so a heads up to drivers. some school districts are going back to class this morning. i'm matt bigler live in san jose for cbs 5. >> hey, matt, thank you very much. it is 6:40. stock market struggling to get back on the plus side. we have moneywatch when we come back. >> plus, speaking of money, sylvester stallone, yes, he is back. and he is back on top of the box office. we'll tell you how much his latest movie brought in over the weekend when we come back. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
we have a new accident in san francisco. if you are trying to access doyle driver northbound 101 at marina boulevard on the golden gate bridge there is an accident that's partially blocking the marina boulevard on-ramp. so watch out for that. we'll continue to follow that accident. it's in a bad spot obviously. but if you are commuting into san francisco southbound 101 across the san pablo of the golden gate bridge, looks great except for some fog kind of making it hard to see, traffic is flowing great approaching the pay gates.
metering lights have been on for 10 minutes so the only delays we are seeing are in some of the fast traffic lanes, just minor delays but it is a little sluggish up the incline. all of your approaches still look great though. no big issues. a little bit of slow traffic as you can see from our live sensors through berkeley. no big hot spots. more congestion out of the altamont pass. drive times continue to grow. 20 minutes now from the altamont pass out towards the dublin interchange. and we can show you actually a bit of a delay here especially in the left lanes approaching tassajara. so gets slow once you get closer to 680. and highway 4, ugly commute. but it's always kind of bad through here. a street through somersville hugging around 15 miles per hour. if you are commuting in the south bay out of downtown san jose looks great, two thumbs up very light on 280 and 101

five to seven degrees warmer than sunday's high temperatures. here's a look at some more bay area cities: today slightly warmer, no major warmups tuesday, wednesday and thursday. a lot like today so no major changes. and friday, saturday, sunday, cooler weather is expected to move back into the bay area. that's a look at your weather.

outside of the vehicle and take a ride. he jumped on the driver's side, traveled less than 100 yards according to the police, when he lost his grip and fell off. he died almost instantly. it looks like he hit his head and may have been run over. police are still sorting this out. they don't know how fast the suv was going. they do say though it doesn't appear to be a case of what's known as car surfing. you can see out here live again a white speed bump there behind me. the neighbor that i spoke with said she was hearing cars up and down banging on to these speed bumps so she figures they were going at a high rate of speed. but the police say it wouldn't have to be going very fast to have an accident like what happened once he lost his grip and fell off of this suv. john and juliette? >> anne, thank you very much. anne makovec in danville. school in much of the bay area opening for the new year this week and many of them today. that includes san jose's trace elementary school, where many
