the freeway. alex savidge live at the scene of the accident as we wait to hear from the chp with more information. alex. >> reporter: good afternoon to both of you. this deadly crash that claimed the life of that offduty deputy has backed up traffic for miles here headed east. you can see behind us here, you have the three left lanes of the freeway shut down for what is going to be a very extensive investigation that will last into the afternoon hours here. those three left lanes are shut down just past grant line road for this investigation by the chp. now that charter bus you see there on the left was carrying more than 50 tesla employees and it slammed into that white vw beetle that you can see is just mangled on the side of the freeway. for some reason that beetle was stopped in the middle of lanes, according to investigators. the alameda county sheriff's deputy riding in that beetle was killed and the chp captain
12:02 pm
i spoke with a short time ago here at the scene told me that for him and if for other members of the law enforcement community this deadly crash really hits home. >> it affects the whole community. law enforcement community and the people passing by. they saw an american flag and they're seeing it on the news. a part of everybody died today. >> reporter: now this accident happened about 7:00 this morning as that charter bus was headed from tesla's headquarters in freemont out to stockton. the tesla employees who were on board had apparently just finished working their overnight shift and they were headed home for the day back to the stockton area on board that bus. now according to the chp the driver of that bus may have been blinded by the early morning sun. again, remember the bus was headed east and directly toward where the sun would be rising and it's possible the driver didn't see the car in the roadway until it was too late. now the owner of that bus is a company called sfo airporters,
12:03 pm
that's the company that owns that charter bus. i spoke with the owner of that company and he temperatures me the driver in this case feels terrible about what happened. >> obviously he's distraught. obviously he's very distraught when there's a fatality. other than that he's doing okay. most of all our hearts go out to this family. very unfortunate accident. >> only one person on board that tesla bus suffered minor injuries. that person treated for minor injuries. everyone else was okay. tesla put out a statement this morning expressing deep sadness for that offduty deputy who was killed in this morning's crash. now the driver of that charter bus who has been with the company for at least ten years is cooperating with chp investigators and right now i'm told is undergoing a routine blood test to make sure he wasn't under the influence.
12:04 pm
clp investigators have no reason to believe that in fact he was. that is simply a routine test they could do in this sort of investigation. the traffic impact from all of this is going to be extensive. you can probably see down there just an incredible backup headed east along 580 coming over the altamont pass. traffic is backed up for miles. all of these lanes, the three left lanes likely will be closed until at least 3:00 this afternoon. back to you guys. >> alex, thank you. just so you know we are expecting to hear from the alameda county sheriff's department and chp in the coming minutes around 12:30. when that happens we'll bring that to you. also henry lee is following the investigation into what happened. >> standing by in dublin. okay. there are new troubles for contra costa county's district attorney. >> his own attorneys are
