7:00 am
>>and it's 07:00am that breaking news continues to be a major multi vehicle accident that happened on one early this morning at about 3.30. >>we had 4 vehicles get tangled up and you can see they all burst into flames that's right one of those cars over turned one driver died several other sent to the hospital. >>and right now crews are just wrapping up and cleaning up this is a video from earlier you see that fiery mess. >>the right now the fires out under control that they have a big mess to clean up. and this continues to back up traffic. yes for miles and miles and miles adding. >>hours to your morning commute kron four's will tran can attest to that he was in the thick of it trying to get to the scene this morning will. >>i would say if you can delay going to work for quite some time because it is a mess northbound one oh one as well as northbound on monterey road. let me step out of the way. so you can see what's being done right now you can see one of the cars loaded on top of a flatbed truck. they
7:01 am
probably will leave here any moment but look at the damage robin james to the roadway. they are scraping the roadway at this time because of this accident that took place 3 and a half hours ago. northbound one oh one south san jose, 4 cars the cause of the collision still under investigation. but we do know that one person has died. reportedly it was a man so i've been able to get that information the name of that person is still not being released. what we do know that at least 3 others were injured sent to the hospital as far as when this scene we'll be clear that still i guess to nation but i am hearing that possibly over the next hour so they will start to loosen up some of the roadway and allow more lanes to be free to the traffic absolutely traffic is a mess i drove by this location went by 3 miles got often bailey road just to get to my current location, 3 miles took me one hour and i'm
7:02 am
on a frontage road as you can clearly see next to the roadway. let me i show you we'll zoom in and show you the frontage road as off in the distance right there and you can see just how bad it is because so many people watched reports about how bad traffic was on one oh one that often the distance right there right by the foot of the hill on the other side of the freeway look at that james a robin slow and go in that direction which is why i'm telling people if you can try to delay your work for the next couple of hours or so because there's so many cars on that particular stretch of road as well here on one oh one one lane and that is great because for a while it was shut down. no cars are moving at all so at least there's a little bit of a movement at this time as far as the cause of the collision. that's still under investigation, but you can see how horrific it was that car there is so charred, we can even make out make or
7:03 am
model as far as the roadway. yes caltrans is out here they're helping to clean up. and the best way i can describe it as far as the debris on the roadway. it's almost like scraping the bottom of a pan after you fried because it's so stock look at that digging into the rock to the roadway just to remove the debris because they don't want it there for it to cause another accident and that's why for now it appears that seems to be the biggest holdout back to you sure and we'll let me just ask you a quick before we let you go to serve a hillside, the kind of blocks our view of a lot of the roadway there but is that. >>the last vehicle left to be cleared away the one we see on the record. >>and it appears to be the last one so it it looks like that's it once that's clear then they'll take it to a yard to look at it and to see if his re the mechanical that caused this accident as far as the scene no, you can see look at that james the chp officers they even have one of them as
7:04 am
as shovel in his hand so it's basically all hands on deck just to help out to clear the roadway to get this moving along especially this being the kim new direction. so many people live in morgan hill in gilroy and the commute into silicon valley. but for now it is just a mess which is why i've been telling people if you can delay your work as late as you possibly can maybe the next couple of hours even if they clear a couple of more lanes the damage is done. and it was frenetic just for me to get to this location. thank you very much well. >>and sometimes the cleanup process can take just as long if not longer than it takes to clear the vehicles involved so let's check in with her back and see how far that traffic stretches back in. well the drive time is rebecca. >>yeah, it's pretty far guys right now, i'm tracking a a very long a traffic jam here we're looking at a all the way into the morgan hill area you could see how solid that is already up cars really are moving anywhere and you can
7:05 am
see why on will's camera shots becae only one lane getting through and that's a six-lane freeway right there that far right lane, the only one. and yes, it is just going to be a mess so avoid this stretch of the can north one o one right at highway 85 what we have this accident since 3 30 this morning. your alternate are also pretty packed like what was mentioning, yes, monterey road. the frontage road is a very slam same with santa teresa boulevard but those are going to be around some even looking at mckean that's another road that parallels it's a little bit farther west. but all 3 of those are being heavily impacted because a lot of folks obviously do not want to get on north one oh one. but if you need to get somewhere definitely take those at least to be a moving versus on the freeway and again we're expecting to see this may be out there until about 8.30 according to chp we have an update on the e t o yet since about 5 30 this morning that that's what they're hoping. they're hoping to have all this mopped up by at least 8.30. let's check the

7:16 am
estimated time of reopening was at least by 8.30 so we still have another a little bit to go here a little over an hour and a half, but that is what they're hoping to do is they try to mop up this mess 6 lanes of traffic were shut down. early this morning only 5 lanes are star really find lanes are park close rather they only have one lane open to traffic and it's on the far right side and just squeezing by and that's what's creating this a backup here that you can see on our graphic. our traffic sensors picking up just how slow it is a solid read all the way into a morgan hill it is very slow and we're even seeing a lot of a city streets heavily impacted because a lot of folks are trying to take alternate like monterey santa also seeing a lot of traffic very heavy on the key mckeen eventually can exit an expressw y to try to get you up to south san jose. but and we're seeing it very heavily impacted, but it's better than being on north one oh one, especially approaching highway

7:29 am
7:30 am
>>all right we're back at 7.30 and our breaking news story this morning continues to be the major back up on one oh one. it's the northbound direction in the south bay just south of south san jose, multiple multiple cars got into an accident this morning as you can see this video that burst into flames, one person we understand was killed in that crash other sent to the hospital with injuries and the last time we checked in with kron four's will tran they were loading some of those vehicles onto a tow truck cleaning up the road surveying the damage. >>there's a lot to clean up this is a nasty process a nasty accident in the back of just stretches for miles so let's check in with will and see if there are any closer to having this cleared will. >>yes they are because over the past at 2 minutes or so they finally removed that last. the for cars that were involved in the accident. you don't see that flatbed truck anymore with a burned car in the back and it looks like
7:31 am
look at this as we speak 2 lanes are now available to the public actually 3 3 lanes are now open this 3 other lanes including the age of elaine that still closed at this time and caltrans crews are busy removing the debris over there so a lot of wiggle room compared to what we saw at 00:30am in the morning because of this. here's that video that we got from the scene 4 cars were moving along northbound 1, 1, 8.85 for some unknown reason they get into a collision so horrific that huge walls of flame was going up in the air can be seen in both directions that they had to send fire crews out to this location. they quickly put it out, but there was a lot of damage on the roadway. i've learned that one of the victims. the fatality was a man, at least 3 people were taken to the hospital alive at that time and we try to get an update on their condition as far as the cause of the crash.
7:32 am
that's still under investigation whether they fell asleep at the wheel speed drugs or alcohol. they simply don't know at this time because it happened with so many cars on the roadway. there were plenty of witnesses, including this person. sun not only i did is shut down one on one at 85 and rebecca strong has been talking about this i came out here and at one point it was a parking lot cars are not moving at all. so many people use the frontage road monterey road and you can see off in the distance, slowing go there so they were watching our from it, but they still had to go to their destinations so they were forced to go on to monterey road and look at that normally that would not be used at all because obviously
7:33 am
you have 1, 1, available to you but because of the collision the fatal accident. so many people took monterey road and it is slowing go in that direction. but at least a little bit of good news in terms of traffic. now we have 3 lanes open to the public it looks like one more lanes shut down and then another h o v lane so 2 lanes to go. but the good news is the last of the remaining cars removed from the scene about 5 minutes ago. james robin. >>and even those we have more lanes open it still takes a long time for traffic to recover and it's been backed up for miles so we want to check in with rebecca and see just how bad it is rebecca. >>yeah, it's going to take a while guys but yes of course, good news, it's nice to know that we now have 3 lanes open versus just the one that we had open for hours and hours. but yet you can still see it here on our traffic map and the road sensors showing us that it is still very backed up the into the morgan hill area, but again it's going to
7:34 am
take a while for it to recover so your alternate route still look good even though their path act as well but monterey road. santa teresa and mckean all those run parallel to the freeway and all of those are being impacted because of this accident. checking on the drive time though for morgan hill considering that the lanes are reopened it's improved by about 10 minutes or so, but still you're looking at about 2 hours or so right now trying to get up and past the scene of the accident coming out of morgan hill on north one oh one, so it is going to take you some time. now once you get past the scene, let's say you're going. through san jose and into a menlo park in the palo alto that's going to take you next to 39 minutes as you make your way on north one oh one there john. >>well rebecca skies, definitely clear than they have been across much of the bay area you can see that playing out pretty nicely in timber on this morning. i showed you this view over the past few days and what you've seen is just been that dense fog up in the north bay, not so much this morning though sunshine making its way down and you can see those low
7:35 am
clouds and fog covering out towards the coast as we speak a few areas of cloud cover still remain right along the coastline as well as inland across the east bay very much so on the patchy side this morning though, and not locking out visibility too much. later on today, it's all about the sunshine and also about some cooler temperatures it's going to be feeling really nice come this afternoon with daytime highs below average for this time of year for the coast. it will be the 60's bayside areas in the 70's while inland spots only in the low 80's today, i've got continued coverage on this nice cool down still to come back to you guys ok, thank you john. so happening today we have all flavored tobacco products and vaping materials banned in livermore that's right but the ban will not be in force right away. >>sarah stinson has more from the city of livermore. >>on the cigarettes and flavored tobacco officially starts today in livermore business owners like the one here of a berlin use have until january 20 20 to prepare for it to be enforced. each of
