5:31 am
thanks so much for joining us. ium laura garcia-cannon. >> i'm sam brock. let's get right tait. bob redell on the scene all morning long watching as the big rig overturned has held up traffic in both directions. we'll get to mike inouye in just a second. bob, you were telling us a number of obstacles preventing those folks from being able to clear the scene. >> yes. it's going to be quite some time. we expect this mess to be here through the morning commute and as a result, if you have any reason to be traveling up and down through hayward my advice try to avoid the area. this is southbound 880. the headlights heading towards us and only one lane that is open at southbound 880 because of what you have right here. you have wreckers out here and what they're trying to do. they're not even trying to move it off the road. they're just trying to move the trailer to the side of the road
5:32 am
so they can at least get one or two lanes back open. this big rig overturned around 3:00 this morning and because of a vehicle that was stalled along the road. chp just informed us a few vehicles involved. eeth arbig rig or another car that hit that abandoned vehicle on the side of the road and then the ensuing collision. four vehicles involved. the abandoned vehicle, the big rig and the driver of the big rig is the only one transported to the hospital with minor injuries. now, sam, you are talk about a couple obstacles and this big rig has half a load of wine and they're most likely going to have to off load all that wine before they can upright the trailer and move that. you also have a small diesel spill here. then i don't know if you can see here, a traffic sign, the big rig took out. that sign is electroified. when it got knocked down, some hot wires on the ground right now. cal trans will have to resolve that, as well. that's why you're looking at so
5:33 am
much time here on trying to clear all lanes of southbound 880. this is your southbound commute on 880. i know it's backed up quite a ways and if we're going to do a whip around just follow me over here. those headlights over there. those are the northbound direction of 880 and there's a couple lanes shut down in the northbound direction. that's here again at a street. not going to be friday light if you're trying to head through hayward. mike inouye to tatry tahelp us get around this mess. >> our chopper has arrived over at the scene. this is the jam southbound 880. a look at that trail of lights. this is the nimitz freeway. i think that is hesperian. there you go. southbound 880 approaching the area with the crash and that's where bob was just a second ago. let me talk you through the backup. there is the jam. just lane in the southbound direction. you see all that slowing. some folks as an alternate might
5:34 am
turning around and choosing to use the bay bridge. we are seeing a lot of traffic compared to a typical friday and the metering lights are on and nothing dramatic through the maze yet. tracking that and prepare for more traffic through the bay bridge. and heading south or past that area. avoid hayward if you can. you can exit back here. the reason i thought that stream of lights was hesperian getting off the freeway and over towards winton avenue and jumping back on the freeway and now we have one of those lanes or two of those lanes closed, as well. this is the activity southbound side trying tapull that big rig out of the lanes and open up a second lane. but right now they just have one. clear it more to the shoulder, they can do that. and there is that sign bob was talking about with live wires coming up to light that sign. hopefully they have taken care of those wires. the northbound side there you go two northbound lanes closed, as well. we're tracking this closely. back to you. >> we certainly are. we'll post any updates on this

along with richmond police working with the task force to crack down on gang violence. police believe the shootings are not random. >> we know which gangs are feuding with who and which gangs are responsible for the violence. but as far as the specific person, that's what the task force is working on clarifying. >> one person connected to a freeway shooting in pittsburg was arrested two weeks ago. since january, 30 guns have been taken off the street. but no arrests have been made in the rash of shootings along interstate 80. changes on san francisco's streets have some drivers see red. >> not from traffic lights either. the mta is finishing up the process of painting red lanes in san francisco's mission district. all of that part of the 14th mission rapid project which dessinginates lanes for only buses and taxies on mission street between 11 and randall. the mta still doing some tweaking but long-time residents said it already created too much
5:37 am
confusion. >> people are getting late to work and children are getting late to school. this is a family neighborhood. >> we looked at signal timing and we've given some better signage and put some additional striping in the street. >> the mta is just now completing that project. crews still need to paint about two blocks. it should be done by next week. continuing coverage this morning at 37. it now appears a recent glitch that tripled b.a.r.t. trains almost entirely gone. knocked out for about two weeks last month. some type of power surge. b.a.r.t.'s assistant general manager said why the surge is not a factor any more, the source itself remains a mystery. have a seat, just don't take two. b.a.r.t. will start cracking down on seat hogs taking more than one seat during busy commute times. will cost violators 100 bucks on the first offense. 200 for the second and 500 that.

5:39 am
let's sort things out. the overturned big rig and that sign that was taken out. this sign blocking two of your northbound lanes. that rig and all the work they're blocking all but the slow lane on the southbound side and that's the reason for the huge jam through hayward and the reason why it will take hours to clear. let's show you exactly what we're talking about. the slower drive. we have this video that came into our newsroom. moving very slowly south 880 and not even within sight of that crash. look how slowly things are progressing. we'll show you the map and the a jam up now from sout of san leandro and get off at hesperian if you can. the northbound side because of those two lanes and the spectacle, those ared, as well. that's the huge issue for the bay. being friday the rest of the bay moves very smoothly, guys. back to you. >> thanks so much, mike. coming up next, an immigration battle coming to a head on capitol hill. demonstrators flocking to washington, d.c., ahead of a
