one of the worse crashes chp officers can remember on a road near the gilroy outlet stores. janine de la vega is in gilroy. the people died in a crash even though most of them were wearing seat belts. janine. >> reporter: yes, that's true. the male driver, is the only person who survived this crash. he's at the hospital right now but he's expected to survive. chp is over there right now. they are hoping to get a statement from him to try to find out what caused him to leave the road. at this point, we don't know if he even thoughs. all of the passengers traveling with him are dead. someone who lives nearby the crash scene on leavesly heard the crash and -- and spotted a ford mustang down a ravine. crews found the passengers all trapped. they had to cut the roof off of
the vehicle. when they did, they discovered all were dead. they are trying to figure out if the driver was speeding or misjudged the turn. three of the four passengers who died were wearing seat belts. >> one was not wearing a seat belt. the rest were. the vehicle crashed from the roof. >> reporter: the chp says the driver is in serious condition. at this point, they don't know if alcohol was involved in the crash. the identities of the victim are unknown. but officers tell us they all appear to be under the age of 25. it's possible some were teenagers. we just don't know yet. this accident caused the chp to shut down leavesly road overnight. but it did reopen at 5:00 a.m. it's a popular route that commuters use to get to highway 101 and something else the chp told us is that particular stretch of road about a quarter mile from where we're standing on leavesly road, they respond to accidents there at least once a week. they are not sure why that's
happening. but this is the worst one they've seen. >> wow. once a week is pretty frequent. >> reporter: yes. >> thank you. 7:05. well, it's daylight in philadelphia. and that's giving a better picture of the tragedy of last night's deadly deadly amtrak train derailment. a little while ago, investigators arrived at the crash scene. look at this. at least six people were killed. 146 others were hurt and taken to hospitals. many of the injured have been released already but some are still being treated and a few are listed in critical condition. this train was going from washington, d.c. to new york when it detailed, jumping off the tracks. the impact ripped apart rail cars and passengers, they were thrown from their seat es. >> most of the injuries were fractures, rib fractures, leg and arm fractures. >> mowm were in critical condition -- how many were in critical condition?
>> eight. three went to the operating room immediately. >> passengers took this cell phone video and photos. a former congressman who was one of the passengers said the person sitting next to him passed out during the chaos. although there were fbi agents at the crash site, they say this this appears to have been an accident. coming up at 7:30, we'll talk live to a reporter live there this morning. far more pleasant news, our warriors hope to retake the lead tonight against the grizzlies by winning game 4. they would regain home-court advantage. tara moriarty is live inside oracle arena. you are certainly dressed and ready for tonight. >> reporter: i am. i understand you saw some clips earlier of me shoots some hoops. >> absolutely. absolutely. >> reporter: not -- [ applause ] >> reporter: not too great,

it's eastbound highway 4 near franklin canyon. paint and oil spilled in all of the lanes and traffic is at a complete standstill. this is near the franklin canyon golf course on the left there. eastbound highway 4, not recommended at all. you won't get through. i would say don't use it. you will be stuck in traffic. i don't believe chp is letting you use it at this point. but they will wait until they get this paint spill cleared. those vehicles may be stuck there until that happens. >> highway 4 doesn't need any more problems. >> no, it certainly does not, even though eastbound is the non-commute direction. whenever i say that, people say, well, i commute that way. >> any alternate routes at all? >> the route not to use highway 4 from 80 to 680. perhaps you can use san dab blow dam road or -- san pablo road or to the carquinez
bridge. i realize that takes you out of the way but that's the openly thing i can think of -- but that's the only thing i can think of at this moment. >> all right. nice pictures from skyfox. thank you, sal. 7:13. this morning, san francisco police are investigating a violent brawl between some art vendors and skateboarders. it happened last friday in justin herman plaza. a woman shot video. she said people were using hammers and skateboards and one witness said it looked like a riot. four people were hurt. two were taken by ambulance. not clear how it started but there are reports that skate boarders were fighting. san francisco prosecutors say drugs may have been involved in the death at the 31- year-old bomb at the chinese theater. this is the photo -- woman at
the chinese theater. this is a photo of her. officered arrested 48-year-old harris rosenbloom on suspicion of homicide. but now prosecutors are declining to press charges while they await the autopsy. rosenbloom has been trying to renovate the old theater. a wild police clays in the east bay came to a dramatic end after a homeowner caught the suspect tried to hide in his garage. police say the chase started on highway 4 in antioch early yesterday morning. the suspect drove on a regional trail and his car got stuck. so he took off. police searched the area but couldn't find him. that's when a homeowner got an uneasy feeling and decided to look in his garage where he found the suspects hiding. he said the suspect attacked him with a tool from a workbench and ut put him in a chokes it hold -- and put him in a chokehold. the son helped him. and police arrested the man when they showed up.
thieves are, taking you -- are targeting you. there are reports of all four wheels stolen from vehicles. a fire specialist says the more valuable the tires are, the more attractive they are to thief. >> with the tires and wheels come out on new cars, it's not uncommon to pay $1,000 for tires. >> now, car experts say you can put locks on your rims. they say that's not a guarantee your wheels won't be stolen by somebody who has the know-how and the -- and the tools. they say that could slow them down and they could move onto somebody else's car. let's check in with sal. some cars are not moving at all eastbound. that's not the commute
direction. that can throw people off a great deal. >> that's right. this is eastbound 4 just outside of martinez near the franklin canyon golf course. there is a point and oil spill. you can see it down there. the traffic is backed up from highway 80 to the point where the chp is not gonna let anyone on eastbound highway 4. why would they? all of these cars are stuck. all of these cars and trucks are stuck until they clean it up. the only good news, is that the caltrans was able to contain the paint and the oil and into the let it go down drains -- and not let it go down drains. but the traffic impact is horrible on eastbound highway 4. look at all of that backed up traffic. these people are not going anywhere. it's not quite backed up to highway 80 but i think people might be surprised by seeing this backup. it's not getting through at all. it's a sig-alert. let's -- westbound is not affected. this is the westbound bay
bridge. 15, 20 minutes before you get on the span. 580 westbound, slow traffic into livermore. 680 is slowing getting into fremont. 7:17. let's go to steve. sal, i just stepped outside. it's cold out there. for may, it's cold. >> i see. >> yes, sir. >> we have a very cool pattern. it looks like this will continue to the 23rd, 4th. ten-day outlook maintains low pressure much of the west coast and california. southern california could get a lot of rain saturday into sunday. the low cloud are in place. mid-level clouds. higher clouds racing to the north. there might be more in the way of sun to the south. but there's the -- the water temps are so cold. the low cloud deck has no problem forming. these are the average high temps for may 13th. nobody will be close. napa, 67. should be closer to 74. san jose, 67. 76 is what you should be.
concord way below. palo alto, 66, 74 is average. if you think these are colder temps, they are. low rotating here. there will be a re-enforcement coming in. that will keep us cool. the breeze has kicked up. 40s and 50 on the temps. walnut creek, 50. napa, 49. santa rosa, 47. it's cool. you combine that with a west wind of 50 and it cuts right through you. napa west, sfo, west. livermore west-southwest. mountain view, san jose. this is the key, 48 to 50 to 52. once our water temps went cold, our weather pattern changed at well. 27 in truckee. 52 fresno. 51 sacramento and 42 in arcata. a lot of cloud cover. a winter stormwatch starts tomorrow morning. 4 to 8. maybe a foot of snow. this all comes together. snow level around 5500 feet which is an absolute blessing
here and a bonus in may. you can see the cloud cover over us. back here is what we're waiting for. mostly cloudy, breezy. it's cold out there. below normal temps by a wide margin especially towards inland areas. a little bit of sun to the south. the clouds roll in. i'm penciling in 6 for clearlake and 68 -- 57 for clearlake and 68 for petaluma, that's incredible. bundle up. it's a cold one. not even a 70 towards morgan hill and gilroy. if they do, it will be short. won't last long. 50s, 60s on the coast. cool, coast bay, inland. cloudy, rain tomorrow. best look looks to be santa cruz mountain. san jose south. we'll still get some for everybody else. starts to clear out on friday. the weekend looks better. it won't be that much warmer. >> thank you. 7:20. we want to join a press

curve too fast, the cars on the train began to shake. at that point was the moment of impact. we saw the crash. right now speed is a major concern and a worry. >> and they will be spending some time to look over that carefully. thank you, joel waldman live for us in philadelphia. we'll have continuing coverage this morning and have updates throughout the day online and on our ktvu mobile app. san francisco police are investigating a crash that left a bicyclist with life- threatening injuries. the crash happened around 8:15 last night at 6th and folsom street. investigators say two cars collided which caused one of the cars to hit a nearby bicyclist sending that that bicyclist over a fence. some children who were vaccinated in the south bay, they may have to be re- vaccinated. the palo alto medical foundation's pediatric clinic is sending 4300 letters to
parents saying a faulty refrigerator was used to store vaccines at a clinic in san jose. that refrigerator made the vaccines too cold. it may have reduced the effectiveness of the vaccines. >> what that has done, it's put into question the effectiveness of the vaccines we gave, not the safety. there's no safety concern here whatsoever. >> the vaccines were apparently given to children between february of last year and march of this year. the clinic says it has a lotline set up for parent -- hotline set up for parents who have questions and it's replacing those refrigerators. restrictions on blood donations on gay and bisexual men may soon be eased. the fda is recommending those donations be accepted for those who have not had sex for one year. that's a big change from the -- from the current lifetime ban. it also comes after advances have been made.
the human rights campaign says the new recommendation is an improvement but it's still stigmatizing gay and bisexual men. 7:39. the berkeley city council has unanimously approved an ordinance requiring cell phone retailers to warn customers that their phones could expose them to radiation. supporters say most people don't know that their cell phones already come with a warning but they say the warning is just not in plain sight. the proposed warning states if a person carries a phone in their pocket or directly against their body, they may be exposed to radio frequency levels that exceed federal guidelines. >> this is not about telling people not to use cell phones. it's just saying, here is the information you should know. and if you know it, makes your own decision about what to do. >> i don't think it's necessary because we don't have any concluesives evidence about it -- conclusive evidence about it. maybe if we had scientific data, i'm sure but not now.

auto burglaries. drug dealing remains a major problem here as well. the city has recovered lsd, marijuana and mushrooms from dealers on the property. herrera says he's tried contacting the franchise owner but says the owner has refused to do anything about it. people we poke to said -- we poke to said it's a problem. >> they have -- every time i go by, they offer to tell me weed, every day. i see the people smoking the weed by the mcdonald's. >> reporter: he wants them to implement better security measures at the mcdonald's. he says police resources can be better used elsewhere. he also says mcdonald's is on hook for making the changes. if they don't, he says there could be possible legal action including thousands of dollars of fines and possible closure of the restaurant. back to you. 7:42. four people are dead following a horrible car crash in the

skies. it's cold. it's chilly. there is a pretty good breeze kicking up. the low offshore is spinning in low, mid-level clouds and that breeze is onshore. westerly or southerly component for some. not as bad as yesterday. you can see the cloud cover over. that's your mostly cloudy morning there. a little bit of sunbreaks to the south and to the west. the next band of cloud cover rolls in. the best opportunity for rain is tomorrow morning. probably about santa cruz mountains. san jose south. we'll paint it in for everybody. these are the average or the normal high temps for may 134th for napa, san jose, palo alto. these are my forecasted highs for today. they will all be close. 67 or 66 way below average. coast, bay and inland. cloud cover associated with one system is lifting northward. water temps are very cold. 40s and 50s on the temps. a decent breeze. west at oakland.
west, west, west-southwest. here's kind of the key for the entire month. upper 40s, low 50s all the way to monterey at 52. 48 to 52 is cold. that means the fog forms rapidly. there's no heat in the valley. 50 on the temps out to sacramento, fresno and bakersfield. sierra, they will waiting for -- they are waiting for the system to move in tomorrow. this could be upgraded to a winter storm warning. maybe a foot of snow up to the 5 a00-foot level -- up to the 5500-foot level. i think .30 to .50 from santa cruz mountains south. it's in the mix here. a lot of cloud cover, if not. it will maintain a cold pattern. tomorrow morning, san jose. east bay, south bay, we'll wait for later and then in the late
morning/early afternoon, things will pop up. the parameters, some thunderstorms could erupt. you need heat and lift in the clouds. pie 5:00, 6:00, most of this -- buy 5:00, 6:00 -- by 5:00, 6:00, most of this will push off. it won't warm up much here. mostly sunny, breezy at times. temps staying below normal. 60s almost for everybody. if you hit 70. it will be a soft 70. brentwood, other locations, really struggle. upper 50s or low 60s. 50s, 60s coast and on the peninsula, probably the warmest is 67. cloudy, some rain tomorrow into early friday and then it's out. the weekend will be better. i just don't think it will be that much warmer. >> if it was 60s verses 90s, i will take the 90s.

longer. >> now sam liccardo said the state law bans rent control on apartments built after 1979. he says that's why new aphobable housing project -- affordable housing projects are so important. he says they provide lower and middle-class families as well as individuals a place to live in silicon valley. 8:06. we are less than 12 hours away from tipoff for tonight's critical game between the warriors and the grizzlies. the warriors expect their fans to live up to their reputation as being the loudest in the nba. tara moriarty reports from oracle arena on how you can get tickets. >> reporter: practicing the rally sticks. i've got the sticks ready, the t-shirt, the flag. this game will be exciting. there are till tickets -- still
