and an adult not only stood by but may have helped instigate a schoolyard fight at an east bay high school. "the four on 2" starts now. terrifying moments for passengers on an american airlines flight in chicago when the engine catches on fire just before the plane was about to take o. welcome to "the four on 2". i'm ted rowlands. >> i'm heather holmes. we're getting new information on this developing story. that flight was bound for miami and federal investigators say the trouble began with the blown tire just before that boeing 767 was to take off from o'hare international airport this afternoon. the plane's experience was being described as an engine related issue and the pilots aborted take-off. seven passengers and one flight attendant suffered minor injuries and were taken to the hospital. >> the turbine was -- the motors were spinning like they always do, and it didn't take
off. it almost felt like it was going to and then boom. >> many of the other passengers watched in horror there on the tarmac as that plane went up in flames. what happened in chicago is extremely rare but it is a scenario that emergency response crews spend a lot of time training for. we talked to sfo's spokesperson about what happened at o'hare. >> any time an event like this happens at any airport in the u.s., we all taig interest in it. we all want to learn from it. we all want to understand what happened. we want to know the details. we're still gathering that information. there's a couple of important things that both airlines and airports train to that supports events like today. number one is, cabin crews on board aircraft train to evacuate aircraft very quickly. the goal in most cases is 90 seconds. and then airports obviously train to get personnel out to a scene as quickly as possible. at sfo we're lucky we've got three different fire stations located around the airport to really support that quick
response time, and i'm sure that o'hare was grateful for a similar type of arrangement today. obviously a quick response time is an important part of an airport's emergency preparation plans. airport fire crews train to the. they practice it regularly. there's always drills that are happening at the airport to test this type of thing, because as we've seen super chicago today it can happen in real life. >> absolutely. it's amazing that everybody got off so quickly. only minor injuries. >> but still a scary situation. an investigation is underway in the fire in chicago. the latest tonight at 5:00. so now we want to bring you up to date on that big rig crash that caused gridlock throughout the bay area much of the day. >> investigators say they believe the truck that jackknifed was a solo vehicle accident. the eastbound crash snarled the commute for hours. ktvu's tara moriarty is live at fifth and bryant where things never really did recovery, did
they. >> reporter: 80 eastbound has been a nightmare all day. take a look behind me. you can see what a mess it is. this isn't very unusual for a friday but we just haven't gotten a break. the earlier crash not only affected traffic in this direction but westbound as well. originally the truckdriver said another driver cut him off but the chp says so far there is no proof of that. highway patrol officers say the driver of this mangled big rig cab was lucky to walk away from this wreck. >> it had been raining this morning. the roadway was wet. possibly that with a combination of a little bit of an unsafe speed caused the collision. >> reporter: just before 5:00 this morning after turning onto the bridge the chp says the driver slammed against the left wall of the bridge, skidded for 100 feet, then jackknifed, blocking three lanes of traffic. >> there were indications possibly that a vehicle had cut him off, causing him to crash. >> reporter: but after finding no evidence of that investigators are treating it as a solo vehicle collision.
>> we've not been able to develop any new information regarding that claim, so right now, if there is anybody who has any information, please come forward. >> reporter: at least one of the truck's 50-gallon gas tasks ruptured. caltrans brought in an environmental specialist to oversee the clean yu. four lanes were shut down snarling traffic from the bridge on 101 southbound to south san francisco and on 280 to daly city. >> i would say that on a scale of 1 to 10, probably an 8 as far as traffic. >> reporter: westbound traffic became sluggish as side streets became clogged. alex and his family were stuck for three hours. >> my daughter had a sleep study so around 6:30, we just been here ever since. >> reporter: even though the wreck was cleared hours ago, you can see we're pretty much right back where we started. if you take a look on the faces of some of these drivers, they
look pretty exasperated. this is typical for a friday evening commute. live in san francisco, tara moriarty, ktvu fox 2 news. it turned out to be the first half of a -- well, the second half of a two punch. another big rig shut down part of that road today as well. sky fox was overhead when it happened. you can see a burned out shell of the big rig. this happened near the 101 connector just before 10:00 this morning. all lanes were closed for an extended period of time. they did open this afternoon. no one was injured in that fire. let's check in with our meteorologist rosemary orozco. seems as though the rain has stopped in most parts of the bay area but i imagine more is on the way. >> yes, you're right. so we were hammered during the morning commute, it tapered off. hat since dried out in many spots. even a little bit of blue sky in some areas as we look towards san francisco. here is a look at storm tracker
2. you can see the rain really winding down at this point. we will leave in just the slight chance of a few on and off showers because it is still so very moist out there. we have a little bit falling over the mount diablo range on the east side of milpitas and fremont but that's really about it. we'll go through the rest of tonight with partly clear skies and that possibility of maybe a few sprinkles. if you do have inc. plans, here's a look at futurecast model rolling into midnight. not a lot popping up. saturday looks to be a mainly dry day, but as heather mentioned, more is on the way. that next storm will come in on sunday. here is a look at the 24-hour rainfall totals thus far. santa rosa picking up more than an inch. oakland, .07 or so san francisco almost .08. san jose, who missed out last time around picked up a little bit more than .09 of an inch. this is all great news. again we have another storm coming in on sunday.
this is going to be a colder storm and is going to impact the sierra passes. when i come back we will time out the next system and, of course, we're looking forward to halloween and what's in store for that day as well. back to you. >> thank you so much, rosemary. the wet roadways led to several accidents including a few in the south basement several crashes this morning caused a lot of traffic tie- ups. the driver of a truck told us while he was traveling on northbound 280 near 10th street, a car cut him off. he then hit a puddle and went right over the guardrail. another vehicle was then hit, and the air bag deployed. both of the drivers, we're told, were not hurt but one of them was trapped in his truck because it landed right on its side. >> i just hydroplaned. i lost control of the wheel and jumped the guardrail. >> reporter: then what happened next? >> i don't know, i was just shocked i was still breathing. >> all right, another vehicle slammed into the center divide on north 87 near the railway.
fortunately here no one was injured. >> all of the fender benders today kept the chp very busy. ktvu's alex savidge had a chance to ride along in a patrol car. >> reporter: we're riding along inside a chp cruiser keeping tabs on what has been a wet morning commute around the bay area. officer henry schultz behind the wheel. he's with the chp oakland office. of course it has been wet on the roadways. the chp has been handling a fair number of crashes, but officer schultz, you've said to us, people overall seem to be taking it easy. you haven't had as many acts as you might have expected. >> true. normally on rainy days such as today, we'll have a small amount of collisions, but nothing where we thought it may have been. so it's g. it's nice to see people are taking warning to what the road conditions are.
we are going to see more rain here in the bay area over the coming days. what is the biggest mistake you see drivers making when the roadways are wet and there's heavy rainfall? >> the biggest mistake that we see is people driving too fast, they don't allow enough time in the morning for the different weather conditions. they're following vehicles too closely, and they may be a little bit distracted. they're in a hurry in the morning. so we just want people to slow down a little bit. give a little bit of extra time. we would rather have them get to where they're going. it may take a few extra minutes. >> reporter: one of the other things officer schultz was saying was that even when the rain is not actually coming down, you can still have very dangerous conditions. the roadways can be wet, and you still need to take it slow when we have storms moving through the bay area. i'm alex is a virnlings ktvu fox 2 news. >> don't forget to download the free ktvu weather app for the very latest on the conditions.

have the courage to right the horrible mistake. we must not let her take her criminal scheme into the oval office. >> reporter: a senior law enforcement official tells fox the latest e-mails were not found on clinton's private server. rather, as part of a separate investigation into anthony weiner's sexting scandal. wean ser the husband of clinton top aide huma abedin. >> any reaction to the fbi investigation? >> reporter: clinton and her staff traveled to iowa where she did not address this at a rally but instead focused on her rival. >> his strategy is to get women to stay home, get young people to stay home, get people of color to stay home. donald trump says he can still win. and you know, he's right. anything can happen in an election. >> reporter: clinton's campaign claire says the fbi director owes it to the american people to release more details immediately and is confident it will not produce any different
