6:19 am
the scene so they are saying about 10:00 this morning they hope to get the off-ramp cleared. i want to show you quickly what it looks like on our sensors. this is not causing a huge traffic jam right now on 680 itself. it's just the off-ramp that's closed so you can use bollinger canyon in the meantime. so obviously all this talk of turkeys is getting all the attention but it's this accident right here in the sunol grade that's causing a backup. it's southbound 680 at sunol. they just cleared it to the right-hand shoulder. but look at that. we have a big backup all the way to 580 in pleasanton. so that's a hot spot actually early this morning. bay bridge metering lights are turned on 5:42. you're stacked up clear through the maze 580 already sluggish almost to 24. and 880 looking great so far near the oakland coliseum. that's your latest "kcbs" drive to work. a check of your forecast, i guess it could be wet tomorrow. >> yeah, i think so. we have storm clouds just spinning up off the coastline right now. you can see that on our satellite image. those clouds going to be paying a visit to the bay area a little bit later on. still, we are starting out mostly cloudy right now but it is dry. this evening, though, expecting some showers to move in maybe some showers tomorrow morning,
6:20 am
too. and then more storms lining up as we head into next week. right now, high pressure out ahead of this system so that will slow it down a little bit but as we get in toward the evening about 8:00 beginning to see some showers. around the country it's bitter cold in denver, high of 5 degrees there today. 10 in billings. only 45 degrees in dallas. clouds will continue to thicken up into the afternoon and timing this out for you, about 8:00, 9:00, showers in the north bay and overnight tonight you're going to see pockets of downpours sliding through, through tomorrow morning. so tomorrow's commute could be wet. looks like we'll see rainfall amounts between a quarter to half inch in the wettest spots. so a nice little soaker overnight. temperatures 60s for highs today. as we look toward your sunrise time, 6:47. sunset 5:01. the next couple of days looks like a return. rain. dry weather on friday and saturday. maybe more rain as we head toward next week. we are going to have more news when we come back. ,, ,,

6:31 am
it happened a little before 2:30 this morning on the alcosta boulevard off-ramp on southbound 680. the chp says the driver had minor injuries. the turkeys didn't spill out. it's going to take hours to off- load the trailer and get it uprighted. we have heard reports of anywhere between 23,000 and 40,000 pounds of frozen turkeys in the trailer. and just about a half-hour ago another big rig arrived to help with the transfer. >> liz is talking turkey and the commute. let's kick it over to her and find out how it's affecting things. >> so far it's just the off- ramp that's really affected. the southbound 680 off-ramp to alcosta, so you can use bollinger canyon in the meantime. you may have seen chopper 5 zoom in a couple of seconds ago showing the boxes of turkeys they are off-loading. they brought in another big rig. so they are doing that turkey transfer right now. the boxes say butterball on them so some stores won't get the turkeys delivered to them in time for thanksgiving. maybe, you know, maybe they
6:32 am
will get there on time. in the meantime, you can see them all being off-loaded now. they had to do some fuel off- loading before that. now they are saying 10:00 before they can re-open the off- ramp. southbound 680 is fine. it has no effect on the morning commute. just use an alternate off-ramp. another accident south in sunol is backing up the commute from pleasanton. southbound 680 they cleared a crash, it was another overturn accident. this time a car approaching the sunol exit. it's jammed up fro 580. the usual slowdowns on 101 in san jose. back to you. >> thank you. a hit and run driver is on the loose. an accident at east 14th and ashland area in san leandro killed a 14-year-old boy. anne makovec reports. this all started with a police pursuit. >> reporter: that's right. it was the suspect driver who
6:33 am
hit and killed this 14-year-old boy. there is a memorial that has been growing this morning of teddy bears and this is where witnesses say the boylanded after being hit in that crosswalk which was several yards away. this boy was a freshman at san lorenzo high school. he was hit during a police chase that began with a car driving recklessly at 6 p.m. alameda county sheriff's deputies tried to pull the car over and it sped off on east 14th street and hit the 14-year- old boy as he was riding his scooter in the crosswalk. several witnesses saw it happen. >> as soon as i see him fly i ran over to try to help him out. there wasn't much i could do. i called 911 as soon as i do the to where he was at. >> the car kept going and the sheriff's officer that was behind the car also kept going. >> reporter: officers tried to
6:34 am
catch the driver after the accident but didn't catch him. investigators are reviewing some surveillance video from around this neighborhood trying to get out a suspect description, a description of that car. they say they are working several leads. live in alameda county near san lorenzo, anne makovec, kpix 5. >> deputies involved in the chase are now on administrative leave. right know big doings in space. high hopes for history in space, as well. >> it's going on as we speak. an attempt to land a spacecraft on a comet that's moving at 41,000 miles an hour. kpix 5's kiet do joins us live to explain what's going on. >> reporter: good morning. they are in the final moments of the very long mission. we have a live camera feed of mission control in germany. it's been a 4 billion-mile trip. 10 years in the making to get to this point. scientists gave the signal to the probe to release the lander and head towards the comet earlier this morning. the washing machine sized probe is making its final 7 hour trip
6:35 am
to the surface of the comet. the comet's gravity is about 100,000 times weaker than earth's gravity so to keep it from bouncing off they have thrusters, harpoons, and ice screws to lock it down. and if all goes as planned it will be the first time a spacecraft has landed on a comet. scientists hope to gather information that will help understand more about the origins of the universe. >> the comets are these mysterious objects in the night sky that we now know that these are objects which connect the origin of the solar system with the origin of the planets, with the potentially the origin of water on those planets particularly on earth and perhaps the building blocks of life. >> reporter: their biggest fear is landing on a boulder or hillside. they should get word of success or failure around 8:00 our time. they are going to have their fingers crossed at this point. >> have a party. >> no kidding. we hope it's successful.
6:36 am
how much did it cost? >> reporter: $1.6 billion. they say it's not a total loss even if it fails because they have learned quite a bit from it. so now we are 90 minutes away from history in the making hopefully. live in san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. >> if they can park the washing machine on the comet. >> that far away. can you imagine the scientists how nervous they are? they worked on this for a decade. >> 90 minutes away. >> they are biting their nails. >> i bet. we have changes coming our way looks like, a lot of clouds out there now, a chance of rain developing. but i think the better part of the day going to be okay. you stay at work late you could run into some showers. we have a storm system brewing off the coast now. more clouds from that all day long. and the temperatures this afternoon generally in the 60s outside with some increasing clouds thickening up especially late in the day. it is cloudy out over the bay right now. the temperatures are staying in the 50s and the 60s in most spots except 50s? santa rosa. clear skies there now.
6:37 am
but by the afternoon, skies will be mostly cloudy. about 66 in livermore. 67 in san jose. and 65 degrees in napa. later on this evening, it looks like a chance of rain heading in our direction. that's the latest forecast. back to you. bay bridge officials looking for a cheaper way to build a two-mile trail along the western span of the bay bridge. right now, it's estimated to cost $400 million to $500 million, nearly a half billion bucks! the bay area toll authority is considering a $10 million study now to come up with alternatives. interest in that path picked up after a trail opened up on the new eastern span. drivers beware. cameras will soon be taking pictures of your license plates when you enter or leave belvidere. belvidere police say the goal is to curb crime in the city. it will be a few months until they are installed and will cost about $15,000. the money comes from the city's general fund and an individual donation. belvidere joins tiburon as the second city in the area to install license plate cameras.
6:38 am
49er defensive end ray mcdonald spoke to the media for the first time since santa clara county prosecutors have decided not to pursue domestic violence charges against him. >> i knew what kind of guy i was and what kind of upbringing i had and, you know, i respect women and i knew the truth would come out eventually. it didn't affect me a whole lot but it was weighing on my mind because all this stuff that people were saying about me that i knew wasn't true and, you know, it sucks, man, it sucks having people saying that stuff about you when you knowing it not true and i just had to keep my mouth shut and let the whole process play out. >> mcdonald was arrested back in august for an incident involving him and his girlfriend at his home in san jose. prosecutors announced monday they will not file charges citing insufficient evidence and a lack of cooperation from the alleged victim. colma police say they arrested the suspect in connection with an attack outside a nordstrom rack store last week. at the top of your screen here

in oakland, andria borba, kpix 5. thanksgiving turkey deliveries still delayed out of san ramon after this big rig overturned on the off-ramp from southbound 680 to alcosta. this is a 4 1/2-plushour closure and will be closed for a few hours more. they have to off-load the turkeys off the big rig, the frozen turkeys. you see the boxes as chopper zooms in, they are going into another big rig and they have to up right the big rig. southbound 680 is a little slow in the area but actually what's more impacting the commute is not that overturned big rig with the frozen turkey spill. it's an earlier crash in sunol. it took a while to clear it to the shoulder. in the meantime that's what's stacking up traffic through pleasanton and it's even slowing the commute on westbound 580 heading to the
6:49 am
dublin interchange. all right. elsewhere, bay bridge toll plaza here's a live look stacked up knew through the maze. the approaches are beginning to slow 580 pretty sluggish from the 24 interchange. so just kind of the usual stuff right now over at the bay bridge. san mateo bridge getting crowded as well from clawiter to the flat section of the span up to 18 minutes between hayward and foster city. 880 looks great. no delay heading into downtown oakland. mass transit is on time. with the forecast, here's lawrence. turkeys today, tomorrow maybe showers. maybe even some showers this evening as we have a storm system headed our way those clouds just spinning off the coastline right now. we have mostly cloudy skies around the bay area although santa rosa reporting some clear skies right now. you can see the storm system slowly working its way in our direction. this is going to take the better part of the day to get here so most of the day is going to be dry. we could see some showers though as early as this evening. -at least in the north bay and showers elsewhere overnight tonight into tomorrow morning. high pressure ahead of it so that will slow this down a bit. but not much. into the evening we have
6:50 am
