good morning, everyone. in our cbs4 morning news health watch, researchers are looking into why it could mean life or death. a study shows those patients operated on at night are likely to divers those undergoing surgery in -- doctors exams surgeries and found even people who had surgeries later on in the day had a higher mortality risk. researchers say possible causes include provider fatigue during anesthesia and surgery. overnight hospital staffing

tomorrow morning there's a chance of fog on the eastern plains. we could get that here in denver. western slope, high country you're on the clear side and a chance of more scattered showers and heavy rainfall mixed in there tomorrow as well. looking at temperatures today. 81 in denver. 81 in fort collins. on the eastern plains, mild with 82 in la junta and lamar and fresco -- sunny skies this morning with a chance of thunderstorms coming in and for your 5-day forecast tomorrow, 82. a chance of storms and warmer to end the week with a possibility of storms as well. let's check with joel, good morning. >> good morning, we have a traffic alert we're following. this is blocking off the ramp from hard land to i-70. you can see the car facing the wrong way about to be loaded up on that wrecker there, but heavy police presence not allowing anyone pass this morning if you're trying to get westbound along i-70. this ramp closure is in place.
the next quarter hour as crews move that out the way. it's a good sign when the wrecker is there. a couple of other trouble spots, things on the road, but there's an auto-pedestrian accident and no word on the injuries, this is 14th and galapego. looking across the metro area, there's something in the road of i-25 as you go passed i-70 and overnight closure still in place there as you travel. it looks like it's along smith road. let you the drive times along parker road. speeds in the 50s from arapahoe to i-25. southbound along i-225, that's a notorious stretch to i-225. that's a 3-minute drive. thank you. more people are weighing in on the debate involving san francisco quarterback kaepernick and his protest of the national anthem. he's refusing to stand up because he says he doesn't want to quote show pride in a flag for a country that
people of color. his former coach harbaugh responded yesterday and the quarterback is getting some support from hollywood. >> right now that's his right to do that, but i don't respect the motivation or the or the action. >> i support him. i find it so interesting how people want to pick and choose people have. >> a lot of people in football in an uncomfortable place. let's turn to the broncos. siemian is your guy. gary kubiak announced he's the quarterback against the panthers. >> we're gearing up for this. romi bean is with us. >> the wait is over. 4 months ago, maybe the only guy who
starting quarterback for the defending superbowl championships was probably trevor siemian. why did siemian win the job? behind his arm strength, there's two key items from pre-season which shows you why he won this job. let's look at saturday night second quarter against the rams. after throwing an interception, siemian came back and went four for four including a touchdown pass to green. siemian handled his mistakes and didn't let it effect the rest of his play. coaches want to see from their quarterbacks is how the quarterback rebounds from a bad play. siemian showed he's got grace under pressure. >> i think he's earned a right to be our guy. that's what i told the team this morning. i look at the body of work during the offseason and i watched training camp through the pre-season. how far he's come. i watched how much he's improved in my opinion.
to me he's earned the right to be our starter. >> the second major reason siemian won the job is he was not sacked in his three pre-season games. no sacks means siemian has a strong understanding the broncos -- he throws with -- with three pre-season games done, the broncos starters won't play again until the regular season. after three games, the defense leads the nfl in sacks first teamers didn't surrender a touchdown. it looks like the defense that won superbowl 50 picked up where it left off in february. >> i like that point. what happens to mark sanchez at this point? >> alan, it's interesting. there's a couple of things that could happen. the broncos could keep him on the rosters and pay his salary which is $4.5 million, but that's unlikely.
the broncos will owe the eagles, a draft pick and potentially a 6th round. the broncos won't want to risk having to give him that draft pick. the most likely option is sanchez is released and brought back after the first game at a lower rate. that's probably was going to happen. >> i like how you outlined how siemian can play this role physically, but do you think he stood out emotionally or physically. is he the best person for that position, romi? >> touchdown drive after the interception and that shows he's calm and he can lead his team and demarcus ware says he's calm in the pocket and quarterbacks need to be calm because that keeps the rest of the team together, gets the rest of the team going when bad plays happen through the game. >> it's nice to see him throwing a nice spiral. it's a beautiful pass. >> oh, yeah. >> we wish him the best. of course, so let's see what's
over a million ears of corn are picked a day here in olathe, colorado. and i'm glad we have a senator who uses his ears to listen to what's most important to colorado farmers. michael bennet asked what he could do to help, and then worked with republicans to
make a farm bill that's making a difference to all farmers in colorado. the thing that impresses me most about michael bennet: we don't always agree, but he values our input. and i do trust michael bennet
welcome back. let's look live outside where it's a beautiful start. it looks like a water painting. beautiful oranges. let's look at our temperatures starting off with 59 in denver. 57 in boulder. 48 in pagosa springs. thicker fog near burlington so if you're headed out that direction, there's low visibility. for potential for thunderstorms and rain. south of denver, we may get a couple of those to roll through. by tomorrow morning we have thicker cloud cover and there could be more fog to start the day. for your hour-by-hour forecast, 76 degrees by noon. 80 by 2:00 and a chance for that rain. most may stay to the south. we'll talk about that in a moment. let's check with joel. >> crews out there sweeping up the remains of what was left from this accident. we had a rollover accident on the ramp from hardland to westbound i-70.
it looks like the truck that -- that flat bed truck has been loaded up and the car taken away. they need to make sure everything is ready for other cars to drive over that so we don't have flat tires. we're watching another incident here, alan, this is an auto-pedestrian accident. >> free bug repellent is given to advise tore visitors. universal studios and sea world are handing out bug spray. it started as a precaution. a 4-year old boy is thrown from a bridge into a river in washington state. it was caught on video and -- caleb folly captured the video. the boy's father apparently tosses him over the bridge. the boy's mom
him. a woman called 911 right after it happened. >> i was scared because at first i thought he was going to smack his head on the lower beam and second i thought he broke his neck because his neck was -- he hit his neck right here on this lower part and he had a life jacket so. so he got sucked up really fast. when he came up he was screaming and crying and it broke my heart hearing that. >> the boy did survive that fall, but deputies did not or i should say they parents for reckless endangerment. this morning, 59 degrees in denver. >> this is still ahead, the cbs4 morning news. shawn is live. >>reporter: a mother and her son were attacked by their dogs in their own home. the mother has died. and the son is here at the hospital. we'll have a live update coming up. >> terrible tragedy. shawn, thank you very much. people in southern colorado survive the storm. incredible hail. look at that. are we in for more
hi, ever a deadly dog attack left a mother dead and her son in the hospital. >> tragic story this morning. a blanket of heavy wet hail coated colorado springs. this morning, people are trying to assess the damage and deal with it. >> unreal hail there. and our first look from copter 4 over the city this morning. parts of the state could be in for a little rough treatment. let's find out about it. good morning, everybody. i'm alan gionet. >> and i'm britt moreno. thanks for joining us. let's gt
