oakland and san jose don't have the same problem because of the runways, the say they are set up. in san francisco, check with your carrier. westbound bay bridge looks good. the metering lights are not on. a little busier on the bridge. this is 880 northbound and southbound near the coliseum. it does look good in both directions. if you are driving or taking public transit, b.a.r.t. is running. caltrain and muni reporting no delays. back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. now to our coverage of those b.a.r.t. labor talks. b.a.r.t. trains are running. but workers are threat ping to go on -- threatening to go on strike monday morning if a deal cannot be reached. claudine wong is live where b.a.r.t. and the unions will return to the bargaining table in three hours. you have to -- they may be close, claudine, right, if they
are still talking? >> reporter: well, that's the hope. the good news, they are still talking. but everyone stood out here waiting on the edge of this seat trying to figure out if they can get the deal. when they came out, there would be no deal but there would be no strike. when you talked to both sides about where it stood, you got frustration and disappointment but there was talk about significant developments. they say this bodes well for finally getting a deal done. hopes were dashed before midnight. >> i'm deeply disappointed about the way the day went. >> reporter: but the union says their disappointment won't mean a strike at least not yet. >> if there's agreement by sunday at 12:01, there will be a strike. >> reporter: which has everyone asking how close are we to a deal? b.a.r.t.'s chief negotiator says he still has a proposal to present. >> they've asked us not to and

the negotiating table again. the hope is they will get a soon. if not today, tomorrow, sunday, just before the sunday midnight deadline and before that monday morning commute. claudine wong, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. 7:05. because b.a.r.t. did not go on strike this morning, all bay area transit agencies are running on a normal schedule. however, this there is a strike monday. a.c. transit is expected to pick up much of the extra burden as much as they can, basically. a.c. transit will run regular buses from the east bay to san francisco and to the peninsula. there will be additional buses depending upon the availability of extra vehicles and drivers. the san francisco bay ferry will add service in case of a walkout. even though some people get this coming monday off, for columbus day, the ferry is preparing to launch extra boats and extend service to handle increased demand. and the chp says all h.o.v.
hours and locations are normal today but if b.a.r.t. workers go on strike monday morning, the hours of the carpool lanes will go all day from 5:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. stay with us for continuing coverage on the b.a.r.t. negotiations. you can follow us on twitter and facebook for the latest developments any time. a bizarre crash scene this morning in san francisco. a driver smashed into several parked cars. it happened at 10th avenue and geary in the richmond district. ktvu's brian flores is there and brian you talked to the owner of one of those cars. good morning. >> reporter: yeah, i did, dave. good morning to you. the owner says he heard tires screeching this morning and the loud crash at around 4:00. if you take a look behind me, the scene pretty much clear now, give or take a patrol car who is here on standby. a lot of damage on the roadway. a lot of debris, i should say, on the roadway, like broken glass and debris pieces from the damaged cars this morning.
if we go to video. again, this happened on 10th and geary and from what we understand the woman driver was traveling on geary and 10th when she somehow lost control and hit a honda crv. the impact was so great, it forced the vehicle to land on a honda parked behind it. and there was damage to a car parked behind that. the driver was in a blue mitsubishi when it happened. for the car owners whose cars were affected, they say they are shocked. >> i heard a really loud crash and i had -- i had a suspicion that it was my car. i just like -- oh, man. i don't want to wake up right now. it was at 4:00 in the morning. the cops rang my doorbell. what's still unclear if the driver was under the influence of any kind or if there was mechanical failure on the car. we do know she was taken to san francisco general hospital for
unknown injuries. but police at the time say she was walking and talking immediately after the crash. what we're hearing from neighbors and the drivers may have hit a garbage truck somewhere on geary beforehand. and perhaps she panicked and crashed into the parked cars. if we take it back out here live, that driver taken to sf general for unknown injuries and there were no known injuries to others this morning. definitely a bizarre incident here in san francisco. live in san francisco, brian flores, ktvu channel 2 news. 7:09. we have new information in the death of a santa rosa teenager whose body was found on a beach near uc santa barbara. the "press democrat" is reporting that the woman died from a head injury after falling off a cliff. she was 18 years old, a cal poly student, in the city for spring break. this is the latest incident involving a student falling from a cliff at that location.

you can see it in this x-ray, wildlife experts are trying to decide whether to perform surgery to remove it. police say it could be hard to find the person responsible because it's possible the bird was shot in another location before it being found in capitola. anyone with information is asked to contact the capitola police department. a potential gain for the california state fair in sacramento could mean a huge loss for the sonoma county fair. next year, the sonoma fair is scheduled to run from july 24th to august 10th. "the press democrat" reports that the state's horse racing board may add an extra week of racing to the state fair in july and that would conflict with the first week of racing at the sonoma county fair, which means it could lose more than $soo,000 -- $150,000. as are disappointed after losing to the tigers and justin verlander. they lost game 5 of the division series last night in
