>> darya: as many as four lane the shutdown will lower deck of the bay bridge because of a shooting. you can to the back of because of a. our solo reporter is there to give you more news faster, what is going on? >> reporter: the investigation continues from the shooting that started around 2:00 a.m., what actually happened, the chp call someone speaking on the bay bridge. the estimate made up to 100 mi. per hour. i want to show some video that i shot of fee--the car that was speeding. and they try to catch up with him and
once he hit the as curve going at that speed he collided and hit the side wall of the bridge. when the chp rolled up on the accident that is when there was some gunfire exchanged at that point. they were able to apprehend the driver and passenger that were in the car. they actually suffered some injuries because of the crash, not because of the gunfire but because of the crash. they were taken to a hospital, so of this point, since then they have been doing their investigation and had shut down at one point, at one point it was all five lanes and then they went down to three lanes, now they're down to shutting down four lanes. the only have one lane open for traffic to go through. >> darya: the have any
background information, with a wanted for something? >> reporter: there is still no word as to who was in the car, the only thing they were able to tell me is that chp spotted a car speeding. they try to catch up to it so that they could stop it. but before they could stop the car it had already crashed. and it is really amazing that you roll and all of a sudden someone starts doing some gunfire on you. that is really where it gets even more fuzzy on the information. that is why they're saying the investigation is taking so long because they need to know how that even started, they want to know who shot at who first and why and what happened. that is the part of the investigation that is ongoing right now. this is really delaying a lot because i can imagine there are a lot of shell
casings and that is likely have to block all five lanes to figure out when this crime scene actually began and in. --and end. >> darya: so george, what is this doing to a commute, but this is the day after the holiday. >> george: it is the day after a holiday but the non commute direction except for the people that have to drive away but the bad news is that it is backed up all across the bridge and that has now translated--has not translated on 2101 north bound. this is 101 north bound that leads up and around the corner on to the sky with. the seventh street exit is your fourth street is up here and around the corner. this is the central freeway where it joins the
rest of the sky way. the good news is that it is not backed up to here and not affecting your ride north bound and to san francisco. traffic of around the bay area has been pretty light. as the switch through the traffic map, you can see from here that is with a slow traffic is. it is quite remarkable that it has been refined to that short stretch. that is the only serious traffic issue that we are looking at this morning, otherwise i want to quickly show the west bound bay bridge in your ride to the upper deck. this is the commute direction that is completely unaffected by this incident on the lower deck of the bay bridge and adjutancy trafficker-- traffic here is pretty light. >> james: now here is your forecast for today. this afternoon look for sunny and slightly cooler than

tree fell. the other good news, there are a lot of power lines overhead, none of those were taken down but as you could see and have crews from the city of oakland public works that quickly got out here and started cutting away the tree. as i said earlier, the good news is that no one was hurt but the car is not so good. >> darya: what time did this happen? >> reporter: this happened around 4:00 a.m.. >> darya: it just has not been very went but i guess it was very windy yesterday. >> darya: after the break for for the july stock futures have turned higher

a wrecked car and there arrested two people. there were no fatalities, there were no injuries. they could pick up some showcasing but why would it take so long for this? >> george: because when there are shots fired they have to try to recreate and diagram the actual incident. they are trying to do this on an active commute route. that is why they have taken up for of the five available lanes. they have done that only because they recognized since it is the chp they have to keep traffic moving. >> darya: this is the lower deck of the s curve as we see cars snake their way through one lane, just imagine this person was going on hundred miles per hour when it crashed. >> george: yes, you cannot even senior lane at 60 mi. per hour going through there. this not surprising that they would crash at 100

see where the crime scene began when i try to slow down and park they said i could not stay i had to keep moving. let me show you some video i did take this was about 3:30 a.m. there were only three lanes closed and you can see the said basically the car was beating on the bridge. chp try to catch up but when they caught up they had already crashed into the side wall. when chp rolled up on the car that is went day had begun fire. they were able to apprehend the driver. two people are in custody. they had to transport them because they suffered injuries due to the accident and not because of the gunfire. what i was told by the spokesperson from the
chp department they said this point the investigation is really trying to figure out who fired at who. they want to know how that even began. it is still unclear how all that came down to that is what they're trying to investigate. i also spoke with them about 20 minutes ago. one man said at this point they were not sure if they could make the 1030. so, you know it is one of those situations where they're not even sure if they will make the 1030 mark. so if you want to avoid this, you have to take another bridge. now i want to show you this. i'm on the island, this is the entrance to the eastern span of the bay bridge. it took the cat
taxicab close to five minutes to get around the first curve he gets pretty slow as it gets closer to the actual accident area. >> darya: unlike a regular car crashed as it was clear quickly are the even touching this? >> reporter: it seems like they're leaving the car in a position that the fountain pen. my guess is, only because i've seen this happen before where the shell casings, they have to circle where they landed and try to figure out in one direction. >> reporter: all i can tell you this point is that there
was a feat p officer involved in the shooting. no one was hurt by the shooting but yet it is still unclear how that even came down. >> darya: you said involved, but we do not know if he or she fired a shot at the chp. >> reporter: that is correct we do not know whether or not he fired back. we just know that the chp officer of arrived at this accident and then the shooting began. >> george: george let us talk about this because it will last all through the morning. we have a nice traffic coming in through san francisco and when people try to get home, this will be fine right? >> george: if this was to last that long valley more than remarkable. if it is there until 10:30 a.m., it would be possible that there would be more lanes open. >> george: one of the factors that can account for the extended closure time is
that the san francisco police department will become part of and in fact possibly the lead of the investigation. originally this was the chp incident there in charge of the investigation and on the scene. now we are understanding that the san francisco police department in becoming involved. so once the san francisco police department starts their investigation and will be up to them to determine to reopen the lane. it is still quite remarkable that the impact has not yet reached on to the sky way out of san francisco. here is a live look at 101 north bound coming up past the freeway. this is where you have seventh street and fourth street is now beginning to back up past the san francisco lane towards the fourth street.
quickly, until bridge is a great with if you want to head south. you have no problems. this is the east bound direction that is the direction you would be heading. or if you were heading towards marin county, you would be using north bound lane. right now the wheel drive is clear and there are no problem for the north bound golden gate bridge. >> james: we are now seeing the cloud coverage affect at sfo there is an hour and 20 minute delay if you have a flight, call ahead to make sure that your flight is still on time. today we are looking for a mixture of sun and clouds, temperatures mostly in the '70s and '80s i cannot think we will see any '90s out there. tomorrow we will have a lot of sunshine. the weekend will

traffic control on the scene. when they need to they will shut down all lanes because the only really have to allow one to go through. they have the cones out and they have been extending the lane closures. this makes it easier for the traffic to keep moving. what was happening before, all the cars they were coming up to this one point and then had to funnel over to the right-hand lane. so now what they're doing is setting out cones and creating a gradual lane closure. >> darya: we had yolie out their timing cars. she said it took quite a while. >> george: yes, and right now the backup continues to grow. i think i have the map. here is the location at the bottom half of the screen this to the bridge. the yellow is the upper deck, that is the lower deck on the bottom part of the screen is now back up from the san francisco and
