road to show you how this fog is going to affect your morning commute. that story coming up. and it is what everyone is talking about this morning. the academy awards, but not just the ceremony in the ups and downs from last night's event. "today in the bay" starts right now. and a good monday morning, thank you very much for joining us, i'm sam brock. >> i'm laura garcia-cannon. look how foggy it is kari has a look at our forecast. >> gooding, sam and laura. that fog an issue as you head out and after that clears a beautiful day, but we have to deal with this for a few more hours. now, looking at temperatures at 44 degrees in the north bay and very mild. low visibility as you take a look at all those cameras you can see some fog and temperatures today will be reaching into the low to mid-70s with mostly sunny skies. we'll have several chances of rain this week. i'll detail that coming up in a little bit. let's see how it looks in fremont now with mike. >> we're trying to see how it
5:01 am
looks in fremont. one indication how it's driving there. a few cars southbound. a lighter flow of traffic and we tilted our camera down towards the edge of the building and you can see right below us. look at your map. doesn't show up as the orange highlighting there because things are okay as far as the road weather index goes. even lower visibility along that peninsula and patches across the bridges and chp said be careful out there. i can show this to you on the map, but you have a better source, i'll hand it back to you. >> better than mike and his maps. what we do have is a ground source. we have bob redell on the mean streets of somewhere in the peninsula. where are you tracking the fog this morning, bob. >> we're in foster city eastbound on highway 92 about to hit the incline of the san mateo bridge. last time you checked in with us, we were in the south bay where there wasn't much fog but you started to see it once you move your way up highway 101 into the peninsula. i would say mountain view is when you start to see it. fortunately, what we're seeing
5:02 am
right now, this is about the worst we've seen. so, you can still see the cars in front of you, which is, obviously, a good thing if you're driving into work today. but that's not to say it is going to get thicker in some areas. remember, if you are in those areas where that fog is thick, you do not want to use your bright lights to see the car in front of you. that will cause a white wall of blindness for yourself and watch the speed and distance and as you can see the orange lights indicating the incline of the san mateo bridge. we are starting to see some fog here. something to keep in mind as you head into work this morning. bob redell, "today in the bay." >> stay up to date with the weather in your neighborhood by downloading our free nbc bay area app. there you can see your live doppler radar and seven-day forecast. breaking news in the south bay since we came on air this morning. the search on for a driver who led deputies on a chase before crashing his car into a home. >> today stephanie chuang where
5:03 am
it all unravels. we also understand it caused a gas leak. >> it did, laura and sam. pgand pgande was able to take care of that. a tow truck that arrived here a few minutes ago and the tow truck driver trying to get that red suv. that is the vehicle that crashed into this house here on the 1100 block of park avenue which is not too far from downtown and we can see some damage, although it's a bit dark. so, i can see that the front of the house, definitely damaged, of course o. the big news here is that the driver of this suv had basically led some santa clara county sheriff deputies on a chase around 1:30 this morning after a deputy tried to stop this person who either ran a stop sign or ran a red light. now, the sheriff office says, again, a brief pursuit from where the driver crashed into this house. the search has been going on since then. we were talking about 3 1/2
5:04 am
hours and i did talk with san jose police who said they are in charge of that search. sunnyvale police may be helping, as well, with a canine unit as we often see when they're looking for someone. we will stay here and keep you posted. but, again, police still looking for that suspect. live here in san jose, stephanie chuang. >> back for updates momentarily. in the meantime, 5:04 right now. new this morning two minors arrested after robbing a south bay liquor store with a gun. meantime, the third suspect still on a run right now. happened just before 11:00 last night at the licker and food mart on california street in mountain view. officer os say the suspects took off in a white suv on 101. police tried to pull that car over, but the driver refused to pull over. the suv eventually led officer os through city streets in menlow park before one of the suspects jumped out of the car and jumped to a creek. police caught and arrested the other two suspect. at 5:04, happening today, we
5:05 am
may be getting our first look at the evidence against three correctional deputies charged with killing an inmate at the santa clara county jail. the prosecution and the defense are expected to present their case during a preliminary hearing this morning. the prosecution is hoping they have enough evidence to go to trial. deputies matthew ferrous, jerry lubrin and rafael are accused of killing tyreee last august. all three pleaded not guilty. the investigative unit followed and found allege abuse including inmates being locked in solitary confinement for long periods of time. you can find the investigation for yourself at nbcbayarea.com. another court case. a man accused of killing a san jose mother and then dumping her body in rural fremont is also expected in court today. investigators say esmid pedraza shot and killed his girlfriend

5:07 am
decision 2016 and the stage nearly set for a make or break moment in the race for president. super tuesday. 11 states ho, 12 states will al weigh in on the presidential nomin nominees. on the republican side donald trump appears to be leading the way in all but one of those states. ted cruz's home state of texas with so much at stake closest contenders spent the weekend. >> you don't call somebody of achievement. you don't do that. >> okay. switching gears now to the democratic side. that is bernie sanders over the weekend. he was talking about his big defeat in south carolina to chuck todd on "meet the press." heading into super tuesday now, sanders is looking up a big mountain. hillary clinton leading nearly 2-1 in tomorrow's key battleground states. also in california politics,
5:08 am
the state's democratic convention wrapped up last night in san jose. prominent democrats including vice president joe biden were here to fire up the base over the weekend. he also made the cameo we'll be talking about over the weekend at the oscars. sam licardo took the podium and picked carmelo harris. >> so much going on. it's 5:08 right now and fog, as well, we can see through it as we head out the door this morning. kari has a look of actual visibility out there. >> it's been patchy all across the bay area, but where we have visibility down to a quarter mile or less, you can barely see the street ahead of you. so, you want to make sure you get out the door early. we're seeing that napa and oakland and in san jose it's up to a mile and a quarter and also in mountain view, san carlos down to half a mile. in some spots it's really thick. after all of that clears out, we will have sunshine today and some very nice warm temperatures reaching into the mid and upper 70s and napa up to 73 degrees
5:09 am
and 75 degrees today in dublin. let's see how it looks as you go across the san mateo bridge now with mike. >> one of the only bridges that chp did not say we have a fog advisory, but you know what i'll advise about that fog, as well. it could get tougher. we could see across a good distance. lower the speeds and can't see much around the bridge. look at your map. that is why is an issue for folks driving through the area. can't see the street signs and disoriented. southbound 880 maybe someone slowing you down as you approach and the san mateo bridge. an earlier crash may leave a traffic break if they can't get that car to the shoulder quickly. it could be a factor as lower visibility in there as well as all the areas highlighted with orange in the bay and road weather index indicates a lower view. it improved a bit over the last half hour and traffic is not bad. back to you. >> traffic is not bad. just the fog. thank you, mike. a date that only comes once every four years. the hot deals you can snag on
5:10 am
this leap day. plus, layoffs at one of san francisco's most peculiar companies. we'll take a look at "business and tech." how did the academy handle the issue of race and what did chris rock have to say in case you missed it? we'll show you in the highlights. as usual there is a lot to talk
5:11 am
5:12 am
5:12 right now. full of glam and full of controversy. as usual a lot of talk the morning after the oscars. >> kris sanchez joining us now with more on what went down.
5:13 am
kris, the conversation well beyond what people wore and who took home the hardware. >> that was the biggest question is what is chris rock going to say and how is he going to handle the whole oscar controversy and that was as anticipated as any part of the oscars and chris rock did take on the race issue from the moment he welcomed people to the show, with humor, sometimes light hearted and sometimes drawing nervous laughter from that star-studded crowd. >> i'm here at the academy awards. otherwise known as the white people's choice awards. things going to be a little different at the oscars. this year, it's just going to be black people that were shot by the cops on their way to the movies. we have a black rocky this year. >> each of you is an ambassador who can influence others in the
5:14 am
industry. it's not enough to just listen and agree. we must take action. >> really was the take away that it is about creating opportunity. but there was this issue to the academy taking on the issue of sexual assault, specifically on college campuses with a performance by lady gaga who was surrounded by survivors of sexual assault. she was introduced by vice president joe biden who called for a whole culture change, not for the victims or the perpetrators, but for anyone who sees anything happen. and a good part of leonardo dicaprio's speech, spoiler alert, he called for global action on climate change. we have seen oscar speeches for greater dialogue, as with wage inequality last year between men and women in hollywood. now whether that translates into actual change, that's going to take some time. >> a lot of issues. a lot of issue more oscar coverage to come. we're revealing the winners, the losers, as well. and the live report from hollywood coming up in our next
5:15 am
half hour. apple hopes to win its fight that is ongoing. the drama continuing as that company tries to keep its iphones secure. another turn this week. >> that's right. this week apple will head to washington and silicon valley companies will line-up. scott mcgrew, good morning to you. bringing us up to speed. >> a hearing tomorrow, lorau in washington. apple ceo tim cook has been invited to appear, but he won't. al will be represented, of course. cook on friday addressed shareholders to the apple headquarters. this is file video. we're not permitted to tape shareholder meeting. he got a standing ovation from shareholders and they're absolutely behind him. meanwhile we expect silicon valley companies to file in support of apple. this is real support. more than we're just behind you on twitter. as we hope you know by now, the fbi wants apple to unlock an iphone 5c used by one of the san bernardino shooters. several people have asked,
5:16 am
surely the fbi or the cia or the nsa could open the phone themselves, so why not do that? we asked who opens up technology for courts as a job. >> publicly asking apple saying we don't want to touch it, you touch it. i think that backfired. let's check your news before the bell and landon dowdy is live at cnbc world headquarters. good morning, landon. >> hey, there, scott, good morning to you. wall street could start the week off on a down note and the markets coming off a choppy session on friday and tracking for its first positive month in the past and look for data today on manufacturing and pending home sales. on friday, the dow fell 57 points to 16640. the nasdaq edged up 8 to 4590. back over to you. >> thank you. you remember zenefits that

5:19 am
as our temperatures warm up. but we do have a mild start this morning in san francisco. it's 55 degrees and as we get a closer look to the east bay and alamo now, it is 47 degrees. and it's 45 degrees inmore and brentwood now at 47 degrees. our temperatures are cool to start and warming up as we go hour by hour in livermore. you see the clouds to start the day and then the sun moving in by 9:00 at 55 degrees. and at 11:00 we're at 65 degrees and then warming up into the low to mid-70s today. so, we're still above average. we're going to have a couple of wet weather systems moving in as we go through the week. the first one moves in tomorrow afternoon and evening and only for the north bay and that is the case with a lot of these systems we've seen. on wednesday night, another one approaching. this one looks enough to push into san francisco before it starts to move into the south bay late during the nighttime hours. and the next three days we'll have temperatures in the low to
5:20 am
mid-70s. a mix of sun and clouds feeling very nice and then as we go closer to the weekend, we will have another system moving in and i know you're already starting to make those weekend plans. we'll have some rain moving in thursday and then again all day on friday, possibly into or rather on saturday into sunday, too. we'll be talking more about that and let's a look at some of those bridges now with mike. is it looking? >> we'll see what we can with some of those bridges, kari. fog advisors for all of your span. the bay bridge toll plaza where we can barely see the other side of the toll plaza. that is the note. you can also see the cars lining up for the fastra lanes and this is like a friday commute pattern and we'll track this because it's no friday, it's monday. as we look over here, the orange highlighted all over the bay, as well. that's where you'll have tougher visibility as we saw from the earlier shot down the east shore freeway, as well. the crash working on highway 4 and we know about that one. not a major commute issue and we
5:21 am
may have a traffic break. we're tracking that. two more light crashes through fremont, again, getting more detail from chp as those come in and westbound 580 and a slower drive starting to develop and a clearer view for the tri-valley. back to you. coming up next, a virginia police department in mourning after a young officer killed in the line of duty on oher first day on the job. new details we're learning about her accused killer as she faces a judge for the first time since that tragedy.

5:31 am
updating breaking news we first brought you at 4:30. the searching for a driver who led deputies on a chase. >> stephanie chuang live in san francisco and crews just removed that suv from the house. >> they did, laura and sam. and they removed it just across the street to get it away from the house, but so that they could investigate. we've seen investigators dusting for prints in and outside that red suv there where you see the front end is completely smashed in. they've also been taking photos and doing some of the work to try to see if they can find who the driver might be. the driver is still on the run. you can see where it crashed, actually. i'll bring you over this way. we're at park and race and this is the 1,100 block of park and there is that house there where you can see it's a bit lit up. the front end damaged where the suv slammed into the house.
5:32 am
damaged pretty badly and not sure about the structural integrity there. pg&e crews took care of that. it started around 1:30 this morning and a deputy tried to stop someone who ran a stop sign or a red light and a brief pursuit before the driver then crashed into that house right there. so, basically the search has been going on for about four hours now. we understand that the sheriff's office is also in charge of that search. still no luck at last word. of course, we'll keep you posted at the scene here. and see whether they're going to get very far, especially after taking a look at that suv. live here in san jose, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." we are tracking the latest on the story, both on air and online, you can always head to nbcbayarea.com for up to the minute updates. at 5:32. decision 2016. super tuesday, the most pivotal day so far in the election is now only hours away. and two candidates are leading

5:34 am
the midwest also his home state of vermont and massachusetts, hoping to pick up enough delegates to remain competitive after tomorrow. we'll stay on top of it for you. >> all right, tracie, anything that could stop them from becoming the nominees? >> well, yes. the 15th. we have two other states, ohio and florida, which are winner take all states. so, a lot of delegates being awarded there, as well. if a candidate doesn't win all the states but does pretty well. say rubio does very well and a strong second in several states and then gets one or more of the winner take all states, certainly they could remainpetitive. just gets much more difficult for candidates that are not leading right now after super tuesday. >> all right. tracie potts from d.c., thank you. new details on a controversial shooting death of a guatemalan man in san francisco last year. a second autopsy shows two city police officers shot the men several times in the back.

5:36 am
our city and people getting pushed out. >> on the move in 1,000 different directions at one time. i don't know where anybody is at. >> homeless outreach workers have been trying to connect people with shelters and with services. a tragic scene unfolding in san jose over the weekend. a toddler was found dead. now the investigation is under way to find out what happened. ened about 1:30 sunday morning. police were called to a house on glembury way. they say a girl, a 2-year-old, was not breathing. she was rush the hospital but died before doctors could see her. the circumstances of the death not clear right now. police are investigating. >> very tragic. 5:36 right now. uc berkeley police may be thanking their lucky stars for one observant astronomer who helped crack a recent crime. two men, 36-year-old vincent bradley and 27-year-old jared starkweather are facing charges.
