tiffany. >> reporter: good morning, reggie and natasha. we are stuck. we are literally inching along. we have been in the backup for at least two miles. there were signs on i-80 west saying beware, all lanes are blocked. that is what we have seen here. you can see traffic basically at a complete standstill. we're just about half a mile away from el portal drive right now. this all started at 4:05 a.m. with a five-car accident. two cars were turned facing the wrong way, and there are multiple injuries. the coroner was called at 4:22. so at least one confirmed fatality. and again, multiple other injuries. two people at least transported to kaiser richmond complaining of wrist, ankle and chest injuries. again, at this point, all lanes are blocked as investigators look at this accident. as tow companies are called to remove the cars from the blocked lanes. talking to the chp this morning,
6:01 am
there is no estimated time for i-80 west to reopen, so, again, the backup is significant. just expect it to get worse as the commute continues. so if you have to be in this area, try to find a work-around. alexis will have details on that. as you can see, we are not moving anywhere fast. live on i-80 west, tiffany wilson. abc7 news. alexis is tracking ways to hopefully get around this. >> the first thing i suggest is don't get on westbound 80 like tiffany did. the backup a little over three miles now. it's inching closer to highway 4. a sig alert. traffic diverted at el portal in the san pablo area. san pablo avenue is what you want to take for an alternate. that's the best bet. the surface streets are not looking terrible. richmond park way. appian way decent alternates.
6:02 am
b.a.r.t. an alternate as well. we are on a normal schedule today. tomorrow they'll be on a sunday schedule. today we are on a regular schedule. that's not going to be any different than normal. nine miles an hour, four miles an hour. i would say that's a generous estimate. probably lower than that. >> let's check in with meteorologist mike nicco. > sun is up. check out the east bay hills camera and some of the clouds quietly nestled in the valleys right there. feeling sedated it looks like. a look at the 12-hour day planner. 7:00 this morning, low to upper 50s. by noon -- the bottom line. coolest temperatures at the coast. 58, 59, 57 from noon to 4:00 to 7:00. middle line is the bay. noon 72, then 75. 70 from 4:00 to 7:00. warmest inland from noon.

70 by 7:00. the 7-day forecast includes special holiday tomorrow with fireworks and possibly fog. what to expect, coming up. for the fourth time in five years a fire station in east contra costa county closed due to lack of funding. the closure of the station in knightsen is expected to increase response times for fire and medical calls for people in five cities. bethel island. knightsen. bre brentwood, oakley and byron. the east contra costa fire protection district doesn't have the budget for four stations. three stations remain open. >> it's crazy how they are going to shut down the fire department one week before the busiest time of the year for them. i mean, these fire trucks are in and out of this place all day long, all night long. >> if a fire starts, how long will it take for them to get here. >> response times are expected to go way up district-wide. the battalion chief blames
6:04 am
failed ballot measures for lack of funding. reaction after president trump sent out the controversial tweet that even republicans argue could incite violence. the president tweeted this video yesterday morning showing him physically attacking a person with the cnn logo superimposed on that person's face. matthew doud spoke on "gma" this morning about the impact of the tweet. >> the president continues to do things that are provocative and beneath the office. i think it's had a dramatic effect since inauguration day. almost 50% of the country now strongly disapproves of this president, and much of that rise has been his own self-inflicted wounds over the course of his presidency. >> cnn issued this statement reading in part, it's a sad day when the president of the united states encourages violence against reporters. >> president trump's tweets provided more fuel for the people walking in planned impeachment marches yesterday. they took place around the country ask hend here in san
6:05 am
francisco. one man told us president trump is defaming the office. >> he doesn't care about the office. whatever he does is a personal agenda. it's all about himself. he really is not a public servant and he should be serving the public. >> all of this is taken out of context. it's humor and it's injected and that's the way a modern president works. they don't expect it from a 70-year-old president. but we just had one playing basketball all the time on the golf course and now we have a guy out there moving things around. him. >> supporters say the president is justified for the tweets because of the bad things others have said about him. >> a look at the "new york daily news," and the "new york post" covers this wrornmorning. playing off the wrestling tweet. a report raising transparency questions about the body cameras worn by san francisco police officers. the problem is inconsistent audio. a deadly officer involved shooting in may only recorded a portion of the incident.
6:06 am
the video which lasts 1:19 is silent for the first 30 seconds. this design gap in the audio of body camera footage raises concerns among some of the people involved in policy for the krarpcameras. a diver making gigantic friends. a $900 uber ride as well. this story, the twists and turns that led to a very large bill. we follow the breaking news in san pablo. this is a live shot from our vehicle as it goes down 180 westbound. one confirmed fatality at this one confirmed fatality at this accident, and it has

. unfortunately i don't have much good news for you here in the san pablo avenue area. this is westbound 80. if you are going to be traveling through this stretch of roadway, you definitely want to avoid the interstate at all costs. this is the view from tiffany wilson, who has been trying to get to the scene for over an hour. she is stuck in this three and a half mile backup. not even moving this morning. all traffic being diverted to el portal drive in the san pablo
6:10 am
area. this, again, due to the fatal crash and the investigation. they have been under way for about two hours at this point. i checked the drive time. it's calculating about 56 minutes between highway 4 and the maze. i would say that's extremely generous. it's probably at least an hour and a half right now if you are sitting in the backup on interstate 80. richmond parkway. appian way. san pablo avenue, any of those will be a better bet than getting on highway 4 or, of course, mass transit. b.a.r.t. with no delays this morning. checking in with meteorologist mike nicco. that's pretty much the only problem. everyone else is very light. >> congratulations if you have the day off. if you are with us and working, you're probably not thinking about santa cruz right now. temperatures going to be in the mid 60s. not quite as warm as it has been. gray and cool at the rest of the beaches. mid '50s, low 60s. choppy if you're on the bay,

6:17 am
a big issue affecting a lot of people. it was a major issue. we just got the great news that the sig alert was canceled and all lanes are back open. we have been tracking the crash since just after 4:00 this morning. it was a fatal collision. so obviously they had to do the investigation into the san pablo avenue area there, and all traffic was being diverted to el portal drive. excuse me. for over an hour and a half. everything just wrapped up about, oh, i would say five minutes ago. you saw from our live shot a few minutes ago, too, tiffany wilson and her crew picking up their speed. seeing still significant delays but it should unwind quickly. holiday late traffic everywhere else. no metering lights on the bay bridge toll plaza. quick check of drive times. 23 minutes westbound 580 tracy to dublin. southbound 680 looks great. let's check in with mike nicco.

6:25 am
i am a real fan of buying two-year-old certified preowned vehicles that come with a factory warranty. i have bought several myself. you pay a bit more for the certification, but way less than the price of a new car. that new-car smell costs thousands of dollars. if you can do without it, you can save big bucks. and you can actually get the car you want. as you point out. gilda, good luck. let me know what you buy. >> record your question for michael finney on your tablet or smartphone and share with #askphinney. a milwaukee couple is still in shock after shelling out almost $900 for one uber ride. >> they got an uber to go to a festival last week. they had no idea the bill would be that high. they say they agreed to pay $200 for the first stop. that wasn't the problem. the issue began when they asked

the driver to take them to a couple more places. the next morning, boy, did they get a shock when their credit card alerted them to an $898 fee. they couldn't believe it. >> i thought he was joking. i said that. i am like, you're kidding me, right? >> driver didn't tell you how much it would cost? >> not at all. he put it in the computer and said, where do you want to go? give me the addresses. off we went. >> the uber surge was huge. 8 8 8.6 times the usual cost. the up-front price wasn't relevant when the other stopped were added. a plane engine bursts into flames after landing in denver. surprising move by passengers. development surrounding tesla's model 3. distribution could start this month. things are looking much better. the significant problem, the fatal crash all morning in san pablo. all lanes are back open.

6:30 am
>> reporter: good morning, natasha and reggie. we are back on i-80 exactly where we had the live shot at 6:00 this morning. stuck in traffic again. just about ten minutes after all the lanes were reopened another accident happened. this one involving a motorcyclist. according to the reports that we are getting right now, the motorcycle is on the shoulder but the rider is down in one of the center lanes. and i have to tell you, as soon as traffic opened from the previous fatal collision, cars started picking up speed very quickly, and motorcyclist had been weaving in between the lanes as we were in traffic for nearly an hour. things happened quickly. the accident was completely cleared. ten minutes later we are now stuck in traffic once again with lanes blocked. this time, though, for the motorcycle accident. we just saw a fire truck go down the road. i imagine en route to this
6:31 am
accident. we were able to go past el portal drive and flip around going i-80 east, and we saw people out of their cars at that time. so, again, expect long delays if you are headed i-80 west near el portal. live on i-80. tiffany wilson, abc7 news. >> i can't believe that. thank you, tiffany. alexis, i guess we're in the same spot we were in a few minutes ago. >> yeah, basically. this is unfortunate. we see this quite often. stand-still traffic for so long, everyone is anxious to get moving. people take off, maybe not paying attention and we get the secondary crashes too. literally almost in the exact same area of the major traffic alert all morning. westbound 80. just before san pablo dam road. just slightly up from the first crash that we had this morning. exactly as tiffany side. motorcyclist down. the rider apparently laying in a middle lane. we are hearing a semi was involved in the crash.
