a deadly greyhound bus crash on highway 1-0-1 in the south bay. two are dead -- 18 more injured. breaking news, a deadly greyhound bus crash on 101 in the south bay. two are dead, 18 more injured. investigators on the scene and traffic may be tied up for of the rest of the day. good morning, everyone. thank you for joining us. i'm scott mcgrew. that crash happened about 6:40 this morning on northbound 101 near the highway inter-5 director in south san jose. the greyhound bus was in the car pool lane trying to get from 101 to 85 on its way to the san jose station. it left last night from los angeles and was scheduled to make stops in san jose, san francisco and oakland. a total of 22 people were on board including the driver. we have a team in place covering
this deadly bus crash from the traffic backup to an update on the victims at the hospital. but we'll begin with kris sanchez who is anchoring our coverage from the crash scene. >> reporter: one of the saddest duties that we have is to wait for the coroner to take away the bodies of the victims and that just happened. and we now know that those two victims were both women, they were both passengers. and that they were ejected from the side windows of that bus as it flipped on to its side. this was a very, very difficult crash. in all there were 21 peen 1 pas and one driver. the driver is among those transported to bay area hospitals. amazingly it seems most of the injuries are minor according to the information that the chp has. so at this point now, the focus is really on the search for answers. it's too soon at this point to say whether weather was a factor, but we do know that it was raining very hard at the
time that that driver was trying to make his way from the northbound hov lane on highway 101 to that 85 connector and the flyover. according to the chp, at least one other driver a few hundred feet back saw the crash happen right before their eyes and then was struck with debris. >> there was a witness some several hundred feet behind the bus that saw the rear of the bus fly in the air and saw it go on its right side on to the k-rail. >> reporter: now, when the bus flipped on to its side, the two victims were thrown through the window and on to the roadway where they died. those two women are among the 21 passengers who were on board the bus at the time. and while he would think that with that many people on board, someone might have some information about what happened, apparently most of those passengers did not see that crash coming. >> 21 passengers and then the
driver. that's the count we have as of right now. but they were all apparently sleeping. >> reporter: so now the chp major traffic accident investigators will look at everything, they will create a profile of the driver's last 24 hours, they will test blood samples from the driver, look for any mechanical failure on at bus that could have contributed or triggered that accident. and they will talk with the passengers to see if they might have anything else, any other information that might help in this investigation. and all of that is going to take some time. the investigation here at the scene is going to take several more hours. and then even after that is complete, it will be another few hours before the bus can be uprighted and moved. so traffic will be impacted most of the day and into the evening commute. we just talked with the sergeant, lisa brazil, she said at least 5:00 and we know these things can go a lot longer.
mike is watching the traffic spillover effects and monterey highway as been a mess, as well. >> that's right. let me sort things out. first of all, tragic scene and you see how much of an issue it can be for spectators slowing dramatic with that bus on its side. northbound 101. folks here at 85, at mountain new is not the one we're talking about. we're talking south san jose out of morgan hill and making your way over here toward that transition. the hov lane and many of the regular lanes for the bay shore freeway are blocked as kris showed you. that will be a distraction for folks in the entire area. the backup has been consistent all morning long from about bailey road up to the scene. only two lanes are open here as opposed to four or five which is usually the case. and so we still have the big slowdown. alternates, cochran very jammed
up this morning. as well as monterey road. things are calm, but this evening it will get more crowded if they don't clear it. so we will track that of course in the newsroom. and in fact let's go out to bob redell. >> reporter: we're about a mile into the backup. so about a mile out to where those green signs are is where the accident took place. we're here on metcalf and he can get a sense of just how severe the backup is. anyone stuck in the backup can expect to add another 20 minutes into their commute as you pan to the left, you can see this backup extends another mile. so if you do the math, we're looking at roughly a two mile backup to bailey road as you mentioned, mike, so if you're at home coming from gilroy, morgan hill on northbound 101, you probably want to get off at cochran road. by the time you get to bailey, you will be in that backup. and one of your alternates is
monterey road, we have been up and down it and surprisingly there is no traffic on there. it's clear, it's moving. and if you take that north to vernal, that gets you back northbound 101. and you can see old monterey road right there just before the green hillside, there is plenty of space out there. so if you are going to be stuck in this backup and you're on your way in, and you haven't left the house yet, something to keep in mind. again, as you heard, it will be hours before all lanes of 101 are reopened when they get that greyhound bus out of the way. reporting live here on metcalf road, bob redell, nbc bay area news. drivers scrambled to get out of the way of the bus crash. anthony cordero came upon that chaotic scene. >> the greyhound bus, it was literally over the median hanging over the other side of the freeway. and it looked like the local
front end was completely smashed in. i was running a little late to work and if i was running on time, that's exactly the lane i would have been in. so a little eerie when you're driving by. >> most of the injured victims were taken to regional medical center, and that is where michelle roberts joins us live. what is the latest on those victims? >> reporter: we just spoke to chp about, they said they will be talking to the victims as they are healthy enough to answer questions. what we do know right now is that three people are being treated here at regional medical center. we are told that they are in stable condition this morning. another three people were taken to valley medical center, they also had minor injuries. chp says some people suffered scrapes and bruises, but in total 18 people did suffer injuries. chp says the driver is being treated here at regional medical center with minor injuries. and we are told that he is cooperating with authorities on the investigation. >> he's being interviewed at this time.
he's cooperating with the investigation. giving us all the details that he can remember and everything. as i said, i haven't interviewed him. the officer who is investigating it is with him right now. and we're conducting it. santa clara district attorney's office is assisting him as to what or steps will be from here. but as i said, he is cooperating at this time with any questions that we're asking him. he seems to be at a loss as to what happened, as well. >> reporter: tragically two women were killed. their names have not been released. 18 injured. and hospital authorities witells they will have more information as the day goes on. michelle roberts, nbc bay area news. looking back in history, two years ago, ten were killed when a fedex truck hit a bus carrying
high school students during a tour. in 2009, five french tourists were killed when their charter bus left the road on highway 101 near soledad. a terrible accident in 1986 when a bus went into a river. and then the worst highway disaster in bay area history when brakes failed killing 27 choir students and one teacher. and the worst vehicle accident in u.s. history, when a train hit a truck and veered it into a bus killing 32 migrant workers in the salinas valley. as always, stay with us for continuing coverage of this deadly bus crash throughout the day. we're constantly updating the website along with the nbc bay area app and twitter and facebook, as well. let's check your weather this morning. >> and the second storm system of the week continues to move east, but we're still getting some gusty winds. and that raises the threat some
despite the fact that in the past he's supported a free market. could a president force such a thing? well, if congress got on board, technically yes. but it would be a radical departure from american politics. apple has and does make things in america already. not many things. mac pro which is a very minor product line, the desktop. american manufacturing uses a lot of robots because they could be cheaper than chinese labor. lincoln logs once sold in america, made in america, as well. moved to china for manufacturing and then recently moved manufacturing back to maine where they're made by robots. the other thing to keep in mind when criticizing apple in china is many of their customers are there. apple is a california based company, but it's a worldwide brand. it sells everywhere. same is true for bay area companies hp or facebook or clorox. they're based here, but they are worldwide companies.
here is the best news if you're like most of the kids in it my neighborhood, microsoft is bringing mine craft into the schools. the wall street journal says microsoft is preparing an education al push similar to the old organ trail software this schools when we old guys were in elementary school. do you remember this headline or did you see it? bisquick to open a valley. totally fake, but a substantial portion of the onion has been purchased by univision. we know he univision wants young english speaking customers, so it has a division called fusion to move into the english speaking market. uber is expanding its helicopter fleet. it already offers rides in new york city. now the company's partnering with airbus on what can only be called a pilot program to offer new ways to get to the chopper. the first real trial run will

clothing cornucopias. >> i just ran them through the washing machine and brought them out after the spin sig kecycle. they were pretty easy as to stand up once they were starting to freeze. >> cold indeed. i do want to take you out live this morning to a picture, this is highway 84 where there has been another rock slide. you can see crews beginning to clean that up. that is not a rely traveled part of the bay area, but it is something to keep in mind as we have all of this mud and rain. let's bring in the expert, kari, to talk about our rain this afternoon. it's tapered off. >> it has tapered off and now the winds are picking up. i was taking a look at that camera shot behind you and the trees are just waving. so everybody though the rain is moving east, we do still have the concern of some rock slides and also the trees being knocked down by these wind gusts that continues to pick up to about 30 to 40 miles per hour. this storm system is moving out
and it is taking with it that heavy rain. we are getting a chance to dry out. and we will gradually start to see the skies clearing. the rain time line shows that there may still be a couple of left over light sprinkles at least into the next couple of hours. will start to see the roads drying out and also by tonight mostly clear skies as the storm system moves away. but take a look at the wind forecast. and it's coming in from the southwest up to about 35 miles an hour. and once again we've had higher gusts. as we go thinto the rest of the day, onshore flow brings in the winds at about 20 miles per hour and then it starts to calm down as we go into tonight. so i think by tomorrow we will have calm winds starting out the day. let's check out what the rain gauges have measured and we're starting in the north bay. rohnert park, an inch of rain. a little bit higher as you head
around timeron perform san francisco, an inch there. pre-sid y pre-pre-video, an inch and a ha half. and east bay, close to 2 inches. check out danville, 1.97. going to the south bay, we've had the rainfall totals not as high, but still pretty significant. anywhere from about half of an inch for most spots up to 3/4 of an inch for sunnyvale. one last look, we will take a look at what is happening in the peninsula, how much rain we've measured there prks san bruno almost an eventual of rain. and belmont park almost an inch. so we are getting once again a good soaking with this second storm system moving in and it is moving out, so we're looking at drier conditions for the rest of the day. high temperatures reaching the upper 50s to low 60s across the bay area. and as we go into the next couple of days, this one moves

none of those passengers saw what was happening bauecause th said they were all asleep. in the last hour, the coroner did it take away the bodies of the two victims who we know were both women and both passengers on the bus and who were rejected as the bus flipped on to its side. the 21 passengers and one driver on board, of those people, eight were transported to local hospitals where it seems that the injuries are amazingly relatively minor. the driver is cooperating with the investigation. and will give a blood sample which is standard in this type of investigation. the crash happened as that driver of the greyhound bus was making his way from the northbound hov lanes on to the 85 connector. and according to the chp, at least one other driver a few hundred feet back saw the crash happen right before their eyes and then was struck with debris. >> there was a witness a couple
hundred feet behind the bus that saw the rear of the bus fly in the air and saw the bus go on its right side on to the k-rail. >> reporter: so now the chp major accident investigators will look at everything, they will create a profile of the driver's last 24 hours and his activities. they will test that driver's blood sample and look to any meck cam failure on board that bus that could have triggered the accident and whether there were any road conditions that contributed, as well. all of that is verse going to take time. the investigation here on scene will take a few more hours and then it will be a few hour after that before the bus can be uprighted and removed. so traffic is going to be impacted for most of the day. and into the morning commute. now, at this point the rain has stopped, it is too soon to say whether the rain was a factor, whether the roadways were a contributing factor to the exte accident, but with know it was absolutely pouring when the
crash happened just before 7:00 here in south san jose. so if it wasn't a contributing factor, in my opinion, that will be a huge surprise. stay with us for continuing coverage of the deadly bus crash. kris is constantly updating our website and app and twitter and facebook. parents of a man murdered an brt a b.a.r.t. train are revealing what may have happened that led up to their son's death. their son was headed home for a family dinner at the time. jodi hernandez sat down with the family. >> reporter: a distraught father describes the pain of losing his son. 20-year-old carlos was shot and killed on a b.a.r.t. train nine days ago. his parents say the antioch man was on his way to their house in san francisco for dinner when he

dropped anywhere from about quarter of an inch up to over an inch in some spots. and now as we take a look at what is happening there, that icon just popped up, so i will query to see what that means. i think that is a flood concern for marin county. and that means that it's closed on 101. that's what we're been dealing with, some of the flooding as rain continues to move through. once again through the rest of the day, this rain tapering off, still some spotty light showers possible into the early afternoon. by this evening, it's all out of here. we will start to see the winds calming down. maybe even a little bit of sunshine peeking out from behind those clouds. and it's still breezy, winds rushing on shore at about 25 to 30 miles per hour by 4:00 as you're heading home, this will help dry the roads, as well. winds at about 20 to 25 miles per hour. and then down to less than 10 as we go into tonight. so let's take it hour by hour in san francisco. we are now feeling temperatures in the lower 60s. we'll be in the upper 50s for
san francisco, mostly cloudy skies. and the rain once again moving out as we go into tonight. does stay cloudy in some spots. and as we check out what is happening in the sierra, this is a live like at truckee. they have had quite a bit of snow and that will be tapering off, but still travel hazards as they have measured anywhere from 4 to 8 inches of snow on top of what we've had recently. so this storm system today moving on off to the east. and we've had some breezy winds. we're expecting more of the same with this next storm system that will be arriving between thursday night and saturday morning. and that could bring an additional 1 to 2 1/2 inches of rain. and wind speeds at 15 to 35 miles an hour. in the forecast, this is what the radar and satellite could look like as we go into the day. once again drying out and then by thursday night into friday, we could have some widespread rain. this one may linger a little bit
longer. so a little bit more of a row longed rain event we're looking at for thursday night into friday. and then wrapping up early saturday. temperature-wise, we are looking at highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s. our temperature its have been right at about average. and a soggy start to the weekend as we get more beneficial rain for the bay area. we'll be back in just a minute. lineup!! scott/ci a timeless meeting between two men after one of them found the other's time
