7:03 am
incidents in the east bay commute. i want to mention if you are on a schedule, give yourself extra time. you can see that traffic is going to be busy on highway 4. and 680 we had an earlier crash on 24 westbound. so the traffic from walnut creek to oakland is jam packed. this will not be a good commute for you. it normally takes ten, 15 minutes. this morning it is taking half an hour through the same drive. in the south bay, traffic will be busy this morning. 7:03. we will talk about that next time. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. scary moments for san jose police. an officer-involved shooting was prompted when the suspect rammed a car into a police car. janine de la vega is live at the scene. is this going to affect classes this morning, janine. >> reporter: it doesn't look like it will. parents are being escorted in

7:05 am
>> reporter: police found the suspect vehicle actually in a carport at an apartment complex at mckee and king. we got details that the k-9 tracked the suspect close by. we asked the police why the suspect hit the patrol car. they don't know the motivation. but the suspect was driving a stolen vehicle. and that vehicle was stolen from o'connor hospital. there is surveillance footage showing that theft. the suspect has a misdemeanor warrant for an unrelated crime, resisting arrest. the officers and the suspect none of them are hurt. and they are thinking -- we just spoke with a police officer. they are thinking that the investigation will be wrapped up soon in the next hour and they should open up wooster avenue after that. >> it should not affect the school behind you. thank you, janine. a deadly crash involving
7:06 am
two oakland patrol cars this morning. it happened at 35th avenue and brookdale at about 3:00 a.m. the impact killed the passenger in the suspect's car. and the driver suffered critical injuries. no police officers were hurt. and no one was inside the civilian car that was hit. we will have a live report at 7:30. new this morning, 25 people rushed to a hospital in vancouver canada after a flight from sfo to london was diverted to vancouver. it landed because several crew members became ill. flight ba286 carried about 400 passengers. the canadian broadcasting corporation says 25 passengers and crew members were taken to hospitals, treated for smoke inhalation. british airways put the other passengers up at various hotels and rebooked their flight. we will move back to the other big story. that is the weather as it is raining in parts of the bay

7:08 am
wind have caused problems, there are really benefits of the storms we have had this month. the rain is helping to fill reservoirs according to water district officials. east bay mud had the second dryest year two years ago. the situation is better partly because of the storms this month. reservoirs are about 80% full now. one watershed has five inches of rain above average. don't forget you can download the ktvu weather app for all of the latest on the storm. it is absolutely free for android phones and iphones. basketball is back in oakland. the golden state warriors tip off the new season tonight at oracle. >> they can call me if they need me. along with the new season, the warriors will have a new look on the court as well. allie rasmus is at oracle arena right now. so what can fans expect to see this season, allie? >> reporter: they can expect to see the newest star kevin

7:10 am
when we first got kevin, we saw an influx of durant jerseys. not a lot of fans have the jerseys so there will be a push for that jersey. >> reporter: meanwhile the coach says getting the team to work together is a work in progress but that is obviously the end goal here. >> this year there are big adjustments to make in terms of lineups and getting comfortable together. >> reporter: now, what you're looking at here is a photo that someone took of kevin durant riding bart over the weekend. this picture has been retweeted and liked more than a thousand times. it captures the excitement that bay area fans have for the beginning of the season. the new star, the star forward on the team. back out here at oracle arena, there are still tickets available on the resale market. it will probably sell out.

7:44 am
how is congress responding to this. >> good morning. they are planning to make action. lawmakers are working on various ways to help thousands of california national guardsmen ordered to repair enlistment bonuses given to them years ago. they are asking the defense department to stop the repayments and look at ways to wipe away the debts. almost 10,000 national guardsmen were given enlistment bonuses to return to iraq and afghanistan. some soldiers were paid $15,000. but audits show the service members were not entitled to the payments. now they're being asked to repay the money. brian is a guardsman who lives outside of sacramento and he says he was given a bonus to return to combat in 2007 and he says being told now to give the money back feels like a betrayal. >> it's been hell. it's been hell. if there's any kind of ptsd that i have suffered, it is

7:46 am
world series in 68 years. but that is second only to the cubs. they have not won in 108 years. and keep looking. there are former as and giants on the team, including the start for the cubs, lester. he paid for the as in 2014. the cubs finally making the world series is pushing ticket prices sky high. you can buy a luxury house or a house for the price that some people are asking for the tickets. once the cubs knocked the dodgers out, ticket prices jumped. for example, box seats on stub hub going for $50,000 and more. one person is even asking for $100,000 a seat. and believe it or not, i'm not kick you, somebody else is asking for almost a million dollars. >> i think it's unfortunate that the average fan can't go to a game like this. most of the fans that will be
7:47 am
there are going to be season ticket holders in some way, shape or form. >> one ticket vendor says the lowest ticket price in cleveland, $980 for a seat, which is not considered bad when you think that a standing room ticket at wrigley field in chicago is going for $2,200. the world series you will see it right here on ktvu fox 2. game coverage starts at 4:30 this afternoon. you can watch our newscast at 4:30, 5:00, 6:00 and 7:00 on the ktvu plus channel. i'm watching sal because you are watching our commute which has been a wild one this morning. >> it certainly has. a lot of people quite frankly just drive too fast for the conditions. and then when they have to stop, they realize this isn't stopping because the roads are slick. that's what happens in a lot of the collision that's we have. let's go to the richmond
7:48 am
bridge, westbound 580 getting over to san rafael. backed up for a mile approaching the bridge. it will be one of those commutes where it is heavy and slow. when you get into ma written county, eastbound 101 slowing down from northern novato down to central san rafael. the problem with this commute is you say it is only 25, 30 minutes but you will see that some of the drive just getting to the bridge this morning has been very slow. let's look at 80. slow from the bridge all the way down to the maze. 580 is slow out of castro valley. 880 is slow from hayward. this is not your typical commute. leave yourself extra time to get where you're going in the same amount of time if that makes sense. don't think of it as a normal commute today. 7:48. let's go to steve. >> that is true. >> yes, sir. >> for most. thank you, sal. it looks like things are finally calming down in marin county which had 45 minutes of
7:49 am
torrential rain. some of this continues to move across. almost done here. maybe a little over san rafael. i cannot keep up on the totals there. my goodness. especially into marin county and sonoma county. they took the bulk from this. this is from terry. there was an observation, higher elevation west of hillsberg and windsor that had four and a third. i believe it. windsor, about three inches of rain. sonoma two and a half. lake sonoma, 2.45. .45. napa only three quarters at least so far. that was the northern part of town. you go southern, there wasn't that much. st. helena 2.68. san rafael, 1.77.
7:50 am
fairfax 1.67. yet you go south to san francisco and the golden gate bridge, you can't find much. the sun is breaking through for some. 56 in daly city. with .11. that's it. south wind. there has been a south/southeast breeze. capcapitola. a rainbow. so we will get some sun today as the system lifts out. we're about done with this. rain around discovery bay, antioch. not much left. a little bit in the east bay. again, hardly worth mentioning. less than a couple one hundredths. south wind will still be with us. mild and muggy. temperatures could be almost tropical like. 59 sacramento. it looks like we're about done with the rain. the reason that this is happening, this system is digging here. as it does, it just lift that's
7:51 am
ban northward. that's why we will see a decrease in the rain. we will get a little break tomorrow. then look this is accelerating towards us. it will be here thursday. the rain won't be focused on marin county but it looks like everybody will get in on this. i'm concerned for the santa cruz mown tees. they had a foot of rain a week ago. not much out of this system. there will be another system. 60s and 70s on the temps. tomorrow we will get increasing clouds and very mild to muggy and warm. but then rain thursday and in friday. a little break saturday. but not much. next system saturday and sunday. >> thank you, steve. you're welcome. fans are really excited. in 20 minutes, we will bring you a live report from inside oracle arena and outside for the season opener. plus, more trouble for san francisco based twitter. the new layoffs just announced
7:52 am
by the company.
7:53 am
7:54 am
>> taking a look at stocks. the dow jones started low, bumped up high. now it is on the losing side again. it is down by about 50 points. s&p also on the negative side losing just 7 points. san francisco based twitter reportedly planning to layoff as many as 300 employees. according to media reports it could make the job cuts before releasing the earnings on
7:55 am
thursday. last year twitter announced plans to layoff 306 employees. twitter has been fielding acquisition offers but a number of buyers have backed off. nordstrom plans to hire more than 11,000 temporary workers for the holiday season. 9500 of those jobs will be in nordstrom and nordstrom rack stores. the rest will be for the e- commerce business and in warehouse and support positions. they are hoping that good customer service will bring more shoppers into the stores. fewer choices for those with health insurance under the affordable care act. premiums are expected to go up by 25% next year. just yesterday the white house confirmed the increase in health care cost because three major companies are all scaling back their participation next year. there's a bright spot. the obama administration says federal subsidies are going up. which means that 70% people

7:57 am
even slowing on highway 4 as you come up towards concord. nobody can beat the santa cruz mountains a week ago with the rain. but there were impressive totals in marin county and sonoma county. we will show you those coming up. c'mohappy birthday! i survived a heart attack. i'm doing all i can to keep from having another one. and i'm taking brilinta. for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin.
7:58 am
no more than one hundred milligrams as it affects how well it works. brilinta helps keep my platelets from sticking together and forming a clot. brilinta reduced the chance of another heart attack. or dying from one. it worked better than plavix. >>don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers, a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding, new or unexpected shortness of breath, any planned surgery, and all medicines you take. >>talk to your doctor about brilinta. i'm doing all i can. that includes brilinta. if you can't afford your medication, astra zeneca may be able to help.

8:01 am
lake sonoma, 2.45. napa three quarters. ra minute county and sonoma county took the honors here. santa rose over 2. san rafael 1.77. more than that to the west. allen peter says says 101 northbound is slippery and sloppy the whole way. it looks like it is lightening up. south of mill valley, they have all over the map rain totals. there is some finally making it out to parts of southern napa canyon. i'll tell you, this was all that rina county and sonoma county for most locations. breezy to windy conditions today. we are starting to see an end to this rain. the next system will be late
8:02 am
wednesday and if not thursday. look for a muggy day today. some mid-70s possible. certainly towards santa cruz and santa clara valley. >> all right. we are looking at the accident list pile up here. fender benders because people are not going that fast and getting into high-speed collisions. but just a lot of fender benders and people pulling off and taking insurance numbers and that kind of thing. this is a look at the east shore freeway. it is taking 70 minutes from the bridge to the macarthur maze. when there is little traffic, it takes 20 minutes. that is adding an extra hour. if you were to drive this at 4:00 in the morning, it would take you 20 minutes. that's what we're dealing with here. this is a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. the traffic there is going to take another 30 minutes to get on. as i look at the maps here, marin county definitely very slow traffic. that's where a lot of the rain
8:03 am
has been. novato to central san rafael, highway 37 is still slow. backed up from highway 4. and highway 24 is not good from lafayette over to oakland much that's what you're dealing with. a lot of slow traffic. i want to mention, both of the oakland freeways, 580 and 880 getting into the downtown oakland area is very slow. 8:03. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. developing news from the south bay. san jose police shot at a suspect overnight in the downtown area. janine de la vega is out there now. and the police say the man was driving when he threatened police officers. so what happened? >> reporter: yes. he rammed into a patrol car. right now this happened right on wooster avenue. we have a traffic jam on this road. there are apartment complexes and rocket ship discovery
8:04 am
school and the kellogg's factory. people are allowing them to leave. it is causing a traffic jam. parents are trying to get the kids to school. the shooting happened right across the street. they are curious and concerned. they are being escorted in. wooster is still blocked off. they have not told us how many shots were fired at the suv. it was hit in the windshield and other areas. this started around midnight. the driver of the suv hit an occupied patrol car off of julian and 27th street in the downtown area. the suspect rammed the patrol car a second time. that's when two other officers got involved. a lieutenant described how it went down. >> the two other officers were on foot and ended up using their service weapons to shoot at the suspect vehicle. the suspect vehicle fled and was later found unoccupied about half a mile away. patrol officers then searched the area and located a person
8:05 am
who we believe may be the possible suspect. we have taken him into custody for a warrant pending further investigation. >> reporter: we asked police why the suspect hit the officer's patrol car in the first place. they did not know. there were no words exchanged or any confrontation. they told us that the suv that he was driving was stolen. it was taken from the hospital of o'connor hospital in san jose. there is surveillance video from that location that police are reviewing. the suspect has a misdemeanor warrant for an unrelated crime, resisting arrest. officers still need to be interviewed. we are told that they are uninjured and that the suspect they have in custody is also not hurt. we're thinking that the crime scene technicians are starting to wrap things up. but, again, right now still -- still roped off. and they are trying to get the people who live in this apartment complex out of here so that they can finish everything up. back to you. >> thank you, janine de la vega in san jose.
8:06 am
thank you. in the meantime early this morning in oakland, one person was killed after a speeding car plowed in two police suvs at an unrelated shooting investigation. a red car that was speeding hit the two police cars and a parked car at 35th avenue and brookdale about 3:00 a.m. the passenger in the suspect's car was killed. the driver suffered critical injuries. no police officers were hurt. and it appears that no one was in the parked car. the police were out there investigating a shooting that occurred about 10:00 last night. a man was wounded and was taken to the hospital by his wife. so far no arrests have been made in that case. new this morning, weather problems are causing delays of nearly two hours at sfo. a british airways flight from san francisco to london was diverted to canada because a number of crew members fell ill. there were about 400 passengers
8:07 am
on board. the canadian broadcasting corporation says that 25 passengers and crew members were taken to local hospitals for smoke inhalation. the other passengers were taken to hotels and rebook today other flights. let's talk hoar about the rain and the weather. it is raining in parts of the bay area, which you know. yesterday in berkeley, a 50- foot tall tree crashed down at college avenue. believe it or not, no one was hurt. the wind toppled that tree. that part of college avenue was closed to northbound traffic for about 40 minutes while the police came out to inspect the scene. we are expecting rain to continue on and off through the morning commute. and i'm sure that you already know, the chp just reminds you, turn on your headlights when your windshield wipers are running. drive slower on the wet roads. and give more space between you and the car in front of you. despite the rain we had earlier this month, there is still a lot of oil on the roads which
8:08 am
makes everything more dangerous. a lot of the drivers we talked to say they are confident about how they drive in bad weather but they worry about other drivers. >> you don't want to have deal with the conditions on the road but how people react to the conditions. and you just don't know how safe other drivers are in the rain. >> a little bit nerve racking. mainly not so much me being uncomfortable about it, but more other drivers, the way they behave in the rain. more nervous about that than my own driving. >> the chp says be aware, you're less likely to slip and slide in the middle lanes. the highways are built so the water drains to the far left and right. you can download the ktvu weather app for the latest on the storm. it is absolutely free for android phones and iphones. just two weeks to go to election day. both donald trump and hillary clinton are zeroing in on the swing state of florida. trump is arguing the polls are
8:09 am
wrong. clip relying on outside help. doug luzader reports from washington. >> reporter: based on recent polls, donald trump has a big deficit to overcome over the next two weeks. that assumes that the polls are correct. donald trump is suggesting that the polls are actually rigged against him. >> how are you feeling about florida, mr. trump. >> very good. >> reporter: donald trump may feel good about florida but his campaign has reasons to worry. hillary clinton has a four- point lead there. trump says that the numbers are not right. >> they are phony polls put out by phony media. and i'll tell you what, all of us are affected by this. and what they do is try to suppress the vote. this way people don't go out and vote. but we're winning this race. >> reporter: trump argues that most polls oversampled democrats and points to recent leks like the brexit vote in the u.k. where polls were widely inaccurate.
8:10 am
>> for once and all. >> reporter: hillary clinton in the meantime who is also in florida today is banking on the polls being correct. and her campaign has new swagger. openly mocking trump and his supporters for this ad for tin foil hats. president obama appeared on jimmy kimmel last night and piled on reading a trump tweet calling obama the worst president ever. >> at least i will go down as a president. >> reporter: but for the clinton campaign, there could be a real danger in overconfidence. >> the last thing that you want to do it tell them you're winning two weeks before an election and they don't feel like they need to go out and stand in line and cast a ballot. >> reporter: that's why you hear both candidates talking about early voting, trying to get their supporters locked down. 37 states offer some form of early voting this time around. in washington, doug luzader, fox news. >> thank you, doug. a little girl we're talking
8:11 am
about. her father was shot and killed in the line of duty. the show of support from fellow officers as the little girl went back to school for the first time. >> reporter: and basketball is back in oakland. the warriors will take on the san antonio spurs for the season opener. we are looking at the free stuff that the fans will get and also fans' hopes and expectations for the season. some improvement but a little bit of slowing here and there on the commute, especially here on the east shore. not a drop for some. it won't stop raining for others. especially up in marin county. we will take a look at it.

8:18 am
580, that's not a great idea. i'll tell you why. we can actually show it to you on the maps. it is backed up to castro valley and all the what i to oakland. that is not a good alternate. 880 slows near highway 92. we've had our share of crashes. a lot of fender benders in the rain. this is a look at the bay bridge. it looks like it is dry now. a new accident just popped up a few minutes ago. westbound 84. and we also have an accident at williams road. just a lot of slow traffic out there. today is the day to give yourself extra time. at 8:18, let's go to steve. >> thank you, sal. >> you're welcome, steve. >> good morning, everybody. for some, a few hundredths, no rain at all. for others, it is still raining. a little bit up in napa county, sonoma county up to st. helena.

8:21 am
thursday and friday. another system on sunday. the next system is going to give widespread rain to everybody. and carry that into sunday as well. if you missed out this time, don't worry. it is on its way. 60s and 70s. san jose is like when is our turn. i think thursday. santa cruz mountains already had plenty. warm tomorrow and muggy. rain thursday and friday. maybe off and on rain. but then a break on saturday and another system on sunday. no snow in the sierra. you don't have to worry about that. >> it's a warm storm. >> yes. >> new information coming in about the volkswagen emissions scandal. we will have the breaking news story next. and guidelines to keep your newborn baby safe. the recommendations that include how long you two should sleep in the same room.

8:31 am
you're not surprised. >> i'm not surprised. >> yeah. >> we have had slow traffic on every commute. >> yeah. >> all it takes is just a little bit of rain. it's just the idea. everyone slows down. >> right. >> and then there is somebody who doesn't. then we have wrecks and sometimes we have people going slower and that's what happens. >> yes. >> let's take a look at the bay bridge. we're keeping an eye on it. not raining there right now at the bay bridge toll plaza. it looks like the traffic is dying out. it helps our commute quite a bit. things are getting more normal here. i will say that we have had slow traffic getting to the other side of the bridge. 280 is slow. slow from daly city down to san bruno. we have a new crash. that's making the pacifica commute very slow. 680 looks like it is 6:30 in
8:32 am
the morning. backed up to 24. usually it has cleared up by now. but we have had slow traffic on westbound 24. at 832 being, one more thing. 280 northbound on the right looks beat -- better. 280 southbound is looking better. one person was killed in a crash that involves two oakland police vehicles. it happened as officers were investigating an unrelated shooting late last night. christien kafton is live with what he has learned this morning. >> reporter: yeah. we will get new information on this incident. it happened on 35th avenue and brookdale avenue. run us through some of the detail below zero this -- details about this. this started as a shooting investigation. >> yes. our officers were investigating a shooting that took place
8:33 am
earlier. while our officers were on the scene, we had what is called a perimeter set up. we had a couple of officers inside their vehicle. all of our patrol vehicles were parked at the time that the suspect vehicle came into our perimeter scene, collided with -- causing a chain reaction. so five cars were damaged during this. the concerning part for us is that the suspect vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed. so we want to remind everyone, especially with the weather, everything that is going on, slow down. let's take care of each other. slow down. unfortunately one person did die during this accident. additionally, the officers who were there investigating the scene of a shooting, some of those officers were also just shot at last saturday evening. so we have the same officers trying to do an investigation, like we saw last saturday. and now they're impacted by a
8:34 am
driver who we believe at this time may have consumed alcohol. so this may be dui related. goes into a situation where they should have slowed down, used caution to go around the patrol vehicles. collided into them. causing that chain reaction where five cars were damaged. we have someone who unfortunately lost their life last night and others still in the hospital. again, we need to slow down. everybody needs it take care of each other. especially at a time when we are seeing unfortunate incidents occur in our city. >> thank you very much for the update. >> you're welcome. >> reporter: we will check in later to learn more about the investigation. guys, again, this incident started out as a shooting incident. the shooting investigation. officers on scene, conducting that investigation into that shooting. and this completely unrelated vehicle came plows into the
8:35 am
investigation. one person in critical condition at highland hospital still. is the last update that we had on the condition of that person. one person dead at the scene. the individual from the shooting incident was taken to the hospital in critical condition as well. >> yes. again, we need to slow down. let's all take care of each other. and we're approaching the holidays. drinking, driving, designate a sober driver, take alternate forms of transportation. let's all take care of each other. >> thank you very much. that is the latest information on this. and the message from oakland police is to slow down, especially if you see an investigation underway. >> thank you, christian. the time is now 8:35. here is a look at the other top stories we're following. investigators are looking for the motive behind an attack just after midnight on a san jose police officer. that officer opened fire on the suspect when the suspect rammed his suv into a police car twice. the officer was not hurt. that suspect is in custody. and we are getting reports
8:36 am
