6:31 am
100s in the accuweather seven-day forecast. here is alexis. >> we've got a major problem in the south bay. two major problems. a sig alert for this rollover crash northbound 101 just past brokaw road. that landed on its roof, blocking the two middle lanes. we did zoom in with our camera to try to get a look at this. it was too far for our range there. emergency crews are on the scene. debris was scattered on the southbound side of the roadway. they just ran a traffic break to clear that. i'm expecting long-term lane blockage here and major delays. that is on top of the problem south of there, northbound 101 south of tully road, an earlier motorcycle crash with a five-mile backup there. now to your primary results. let's kick off with the race for california governor. there are 27 candidates on the ballot. now we know just two will move to the general election.
6:32 am
>> the top two vote getters move forward regardless of their party affiliation. gavin newsom held his watch party in stran. >> in that victory speech, newsom shared his vision with the crowd. >> we're the most prosperous state in mirka, but also the poorest. the california dream will never be realized until every californian is sharing it. it's about equity, it's about sustainability and it's about time. >> former los angeles marianne tonio villaraigosa finished third in the race. the democrat endorsed newsom in his concession speech. republican john cox wasted little time going after newsom after declaring a second-place victory. >> mr. knewsome made it clear he wanted to run against me instead of another democrat. as i told him in san jose at the debate, be careful, mr.
6:33 am
knewsome, be careful what you wish for. >> he also in his speech called newsom part of the status quo and criticized newsom for the sanctuary state policy and for the unpopular new gas tax increase. president trump tweeted a congratulations to cox just a few minutes ago. he says in part, great night for republicans, congrats to john cox on a really big number in california. he can win. >> nearly 119,000 voters in l.a. county got a big surprise when they went to their polling place, their names were not on the vote eros center yesterday. the county registrar's office says a random printing error caused that problem and voters were supposed to be handed a provisional ballot instead that is used when a name doesn't appear on the roster. the error could have a major impact on the timing of the results in the state. possibly delays the count for days. in san jose, sam liccardo expected to remain mayor.
6:34 am
comfortably leading challenging steve brown. taking a look at his numbers. 74% to 15%. last night liccardo thanked everyone for their unwavering support. also in the south bay, voters have spoken in the recall of judge aaron persky. this was decisive. 60% to 40%. let's turn to regional measure 3 which would raise tolls on every bay area bridge except the golden gate bridge by $3.00 over the next six years. over the ballot in nine bay area counties. you can take a look, the way voters answered this question, whether they wanted to remain stuck in traffic or pay the eventual $9.00 toll. 54% of voters responding yes. 81% of precincts reporting. if passed, the measure will increase tolls by $3.0 0. the toll increase will happen $1.00 at a time spanning several
6:35 am
years. it's estimated to raise $4.5 billion to fund traffic projects. a large pours of the funds would go to mass transit. voters we spoke with have mixed feelings. people don't want to pay more but traffic is just awful. >> certainly i would like to see b.a.r.t. gets its act together. if the cars would help, that would be a good thing. >> i don't understand how it keeps going up and up and up. traffic has not improved. it's gotten worse. >> more election results posted on our website, it's where you can keep up to date as more votes are counted. >> let's get back to the breaking news in san jose, a car slamming into a fire engine this morning on capitol expressway. it just barely missed a firefighter. it was a pretty nasty scene. let's check in with abc 7 news reporter matt keller. looks like things have cleared up? >> reporter: yes, they towed away the vehicle and the fire
6:36 am
engine was able to drive off. the good news, capitol expressway, the westbound direction is now back open this morning. all this started when firefighters were called about 2:30 this morning for a vegetation fire just off capitol expressway. about an hour later the engineer for engine 24 was putting out more cones and lights in the road as three other firefighters were battling the fire. >> he was putting the cones out again. as you see, there are these little refleck tors that we have that help to identify the cone pattern more. as he was walking back to just the last cone, this car blew past him, causing him to jump out of of the way. >> reporter: the engineer was okay. no other frietsds were hurt. the driver of the car had to be extricated out and was taken to a trauma center. san jose police are in charge of this investigation and will look into what led up to this crash.

6:45 am
video statement from washington shortly after the polls closed. >> thanks so much for your support and for your faith in me. i'm not going to let you down. now it's on to november. >> feinstein has been in office for quite a while, serving in the senate since 1992. if you went to bed thinking that london breed had the race for san francisco mayor in the bag, you're in for a shock. >> take a look at your screen. let's take a look at the results right now. technically london breed and mark leno are equal percentagewise, 50/50. mark len go gaining 10% overnight because of ranked-choice voting. with that, it could still change the outcome with mail-in ballots. he campaigned with a message to shake up city hall. he formed a controversial alliance with jane kim who was eliminated, insisting a progressive candidate is needed to bring change to city hall.
6:46 am
leno addressed the partnership last night. >> so to extrapolate upon that, that it was some sort of a strategy or gaming or anything, that's really more than it was. but i did give my second vote to jane and i think she gave her second vote to me because we both agree, that it is time for fundamental change for a new direction at city hall. >> whatever the outcome now, leno says this is his last political campaign. ranked-choice voting is obviously going to be a hot topic all a day because of how close this race is. >> former san mateo assemblyman ted lempert now at uc berkeley joining us to speak about it. great to speak be you. >> thank you very much. >> the chronicle early on accused leno and kim of gaming the system in an unprecedented way. is that fair criticism? >> i'm not sure there that's
