gathered new information. let's go to you. >> reporter: , good morning, yeah, it is a big mess for commuters and cal trans crews. this is what is tying up traffic. you been talking about it all morning, sal and you can see the 18-wheeler flipped over and the wheel just kind of dangling in the air there. it looks like a big crane tow truck has pulled up and they are trying to right it. it happened this morning it flipped over carrying bark and ma another and i can tell you just from being out here you can smell the cargo the truck was carrying. there is a lot of debris in the middle of the road. you can see the bags of bark this was carrying.
chp sad the driver told them he was driving 55 miles per hour in the right hand lane shortly after 4:00 this morning when his right front tire blew out. when that happened it caused him to lose control of the vehicle. it flipped over and now it is still blocking the two left hand lanes of interstate 580 just west of portola avenue. if we take a look around we can show you the traffic jam backed up at least a couple of miles from this point. again, just west of portola avenue. if we look on the other side of the median you can see traffic on the eastbound side is moving along nicely. however, we go even further and show you the frontage roads looks like the westbound is backed up as well because all the people who now know about this accident are trying to avoid it and find another way to get to where they need to go. again, the good news, the driver was not hurt. no other cars were involved. chp says they are waiting for
cal trans cleanup crews to arrive. the good news but this debris is it is not hazardous and just smells bad. the estimated time for these lanes to re-open is three hours from now so definitely tied up for commuters out here on west interstate 580. sal, back to you. >> thank you. we are learning details about a shooting investigation. tara moriarty has the latest. >> reporter: just beyond this crime scene tape this is a home where we talked to a man just leaving for work. we spoke to him very briefly. he said that he heard gunshots last night or actually early this morning. we are trying to get more information from him but before we could he was whisked away by a police officer. we did speak to another
neighbor. she said there was an officer- involved shooting shortly after an attempted breakin. the woman says around 1:00 she noticed more than a dozen squad cars lining the street. she says officers rushed toward a house on the back side of nearby railroad tracks and that is where someone was trying to break in. half an hour later police showed up wanting to make sure everyone was all right. no word on who was shot or if but we are told it was not a police officer. they will be here throughout much of the morning. there are new investigators that have arrived on scene. there is a fence and trees. we have benoiting a lot of investigators maded back toward that direction so we can pretty much assume that is where the house is located. we will of course bring you more information as soon as it becomes available to us here this morning. >> 6:05.

down. it is right side up. you can see there is people on top loading some of the debris that that cargo truck was carrying back on to the bed of the truck. but while all of this cleanup takes place this highway is completely shut down, westbound 580 previously just the far left lanes had been shut down but now as we said as the cleanup starts to take place all the lanes are shut down. so traffic here is at a complete stand still. we are just west of important storm a avenue on 580. this accident happened at 4:00 this morning. a truck carrying 20 tons of bark and ma another flipped over and as i mentioned earlier arlier you can smell it.
the driver was able to walk away. he says he has ten years driving rigs like this and said he was in the right hand lane going five miles per hour when his front tire blew out. that caused him to lose control of the big rig. it flipped over. luckily he did not hit any other cars.

trans to sweep up and cleanup is at least another two and a half hours. we will bring you more updates as they come in. >> we will stay on top of that. also just moments ago police released new information about the shooting in antioch. tara moriarty has been on the scene. >> reporter: dozens of investigators have swarmed the area. we are now told there was indeed a breakin and while the burglar was actually inside the house that is when officers shot and killed him at 1:15 this morning when a neighbor called 911 reported the breakin. authorities say the burglar was inside when they stormed in with their canine unit and that is when the homicide happened. >> there was an exchange of gunfire between the suspect and the officers. the suspect was hit.
