another day at school. here's a look at the scene yesterday at denver international airport late in the afternoon on sunday. crashing into an overpass and you can see the front side of the bus sort of smashed in when crews arrived at that that scene. the bus was one of three with football players and coaches heading home from dia coming back from a game in california. the bus that crashed had 31 people inside but everyone on all three buses evacuated and they went inside to the airport to a closed off area so they could be checked for non-life-threatening injuries and police tylotes driver made -- us the driver made a second loop back to the arrival section of the airport on the east side of dia after she already had those students on the bus. and they're not sure yet why she may have done that. the name of the bus driver as well as those two coaches in critical condition has nonpresident released yet -- not been released yet but police are still investigating this crash trying to figure out if a medical emergency may have happened to that driver while she was on the road.

chitnis, cbs4 news. >> you feel for the community this morning. thank you for that report. today hillary clinton is off the campaign trail because of doctors' orders. yesterday, she had some trouble getting into her vehicle after the 9/11 memorial in new york. our andrew spencer has the latest. >> reporter: clearly unsteady on her feet, hillary clinton stumbled trying to get into a van as she left early from a 9/11 memorial service on sunday. clinton would appear outside her daughter's apartment a couple of hours te and apparently feeling much better. >> it's a beautiful day. >> reporter: she posted for -- posed for a photo, but she said very little. >> how are you feeling? what happened? >> reporter: not until much later sunday did clinton's doctor release a statement saying clinton was actually diagnosed wamu moineau on friday. donald trump skipped the chance to comment on sunday. >> a question about hillary clinton's health incident this morning?
5:05 am
handlers kept governor mike pence at a distance. the silence is perhaps surprising from the trump campaign. whose surrogates have at times tried to stir up questions about her health in the past. but sources inside trump's campaign say surrogates have been told to be respectful and staff members told to keep quiet and not say anything negative about what happened. i'm andrew spencer reporting. weather and traffic every ten minutes on the floor, here's lauren. >> good morning, starting off with 59 in burlington and 6 # akron and at dia 48 in avon and 64 over in grand junction. satellite and radar we have some rain skirting through the state right now. not a lot. south some in mat fat county and a few showers this morning and the rest of us clear or a little bit of cloud cover and the hour by hour forecast, this morning mostly sunny to partly sunny skies. and then we have the chance for some afternoon and evening thunderstorms. so we'll time those out for you in just a moment. right now let's check in with joel. we're watching a traffic
5:06 am
and you can see our photojournalist eddie castro at the scene. it involves a police cruiser so they have an extended investigation going on. meanwhile that whole intersection is shut down. this is sheridan and actually a big stretch of sheridan itself shut down from 14th out to colfax because of that this morning. you can take federal and of course you can take wadsworth on either side if you need to get access south on to colfax this morning. in the northbound direction you should be able to get on to colfax itself. here we are across the denver metro area and i know there's showing that ramp closure as you get from auraria to southbound i-25 that has been closed all weekend and alan that should be picked up here shortly. all right joel thank you very much. an a image that's been a symbol of strength since the 9/11 attacks on america. three firefighters on the smoldering rubble hoisting the american flag. for a time that flag though, was missing. we have more on the story and
5:07 am
three firefighters were out in the audience and they said that's not the flag. >> reporter: how did they know? >> these guys are sharp guys, they knew that was so big it was definitely not the flag that they had that day. >> reporter: in november of 2014, 13 years and 3,000 miles away, the missing flag resurfaced. just as mysteriously as it once disappeared. jim masn gail was a detective with the everett, washington police department which selected the case. >> the fire had been turned into the department in a joanne's store bag. we looked at the flag and we had photos and it looked very similar to what we were seeing in the photographs and in the video. so we thought, well, it's either a very elaborate hoax or it's the real thing. >> reporter: after months authorities are now 99% stern it's indeed the real thing. same size, coated in the same
5:08 am
zero. but how was it lost in the first place? and who is the mystery man seen here in a police sketch who returned it? joe daniels is president of the national september 11th memorial and museum. >> i think that it's such an incredible story we want to know all the details try to actually trace it back throughout the years. so that's something that we'll be working on but right now just so thrilled that this is the actual flag that is going to be here for forever for honors firefighters lost on 9/11. ahead this morning we're going to hear what first responders are motivated to do every year. >> if you think that grabbing that airline seat booking has been getting harder you may be

5:13 am
are taking each step? >> i mean taking a step is just remembering every time we go we get a guy and i have him -- throughout the years and stuff and you just think about their family, what they're going through, not having him with them. >> if they were able to decide at that moment they were going to risk their lives and maybe lose their lives to save thousands of other people, keeps us going all the time. it's our responsibility to carry on their memories. >> reporter: the denver 9/11 stair climb was the first of now, dozens of similar events take place across the nation every year. all with one goal in mind. >> just kind of a way to keep going and -- they go on. >> reporter: in denver, kelly werthmann, cbs4 news. >> just amazing to see that tradition carried out. take a look at this. there was also a massive turnout yesterday morning for the stair climb at red rocks.

5:15 am
really going to get much from that. we have the cold front that's going to drop on through with it but fairly dry. we have the chance though of some moisture to swing up our direction later on today. the futurecast now, the morning showers skirt on through and then we have partly sunny to mostly sunny skies this morning and again as that front comes through it's going to cool us off for us and we are going to see our winds increase and then this afternoon, we do have the chance of a few isolated thunderstorms. most of those should be south of denver and then stay down to the south and the west. and could get a few up into the foothills overnight tonight and still have little rain out there. cloudy skies here across the front range and out west. and then we have a chance of more rain coming through tomorrow afternoon and evening along with much cooler temperatures down into the 60s tomorrow. so we really cool off tomorrow. now we'll have the chance of rain over here across the front range. northwestern corner you are going to be on the dry side again today. low humidity and also gusty winds and then we're looking at dry vegetation. for parts of the white river

5:17 am
at least for now as you get right near colfax from is thisth out to -- 14th out to colfax again that closure in place. still overnight closures in place until this morning at 5:30 from auraria to southbound i-25. the closure that we had along alameda in the eastbound direction just east of santa fe has been cleared out of the way. and c-470 still seeing some delays coming up the hill and that north westbound direction. due to some ongoing road work through there. they've been doing some repaving and britt take a look at the drive times i will like them. both directions through commerce city right now speeds into the 60s. joel thank you for that. this weekend, filmmakers and stars are hoping to gain oscar buzz as they gather in toronto and this weekend's top film makes a splash at the box office. here's danielle nottingham with today's eye on entertainment. >> reporter: the film "sullied" soared to the top of this weekend's box office. tom hanks stars in the drama

good morning. talking broncos and about a month ago kubiak said the broncos had more depth at wide receiver than he's ever had in his career. well one week into the regular season, and an injury to thomas could test that depth. dt hurt his hips in the first quarter on thursday and he did finish the game. espn reported yesterday that thomas had an mri on friday and the broncos are now going to send it out for a second opinion. as there's some concern that dt could miss time. so certainly something to watch for this week. remember, fowlers a millionsed the up -- also missed the occupier with an -- opener with an elbow injury. and nfl yesterday was the former broncos' bull in houston, the texans against john fox and the bears. late in the second quarter, brock to hopkins, first td pass as a texan. but just before the half, it'd be former bronco jay cutler to former bronco eddie royal. 14-10 bears. fourth quarter, brock dumps it
