park before eventually driving into the eastbound lanes and off the roadway. they don't know why this happened, and unfortunately when crews showed up it was too late. >> when they arrived on scene, they were hoping for the best, to be able to extricate and transport someone to the hospital. but it was very clear that the three subjects had passed away and that there was nothing additional that the fire department could do in saving the subjects. >> reporter: now, authorities do say it appears this driver was driving at a high rate of speed off the roadway when this accident occurred. what caused the driver to lose control in the first place is still under investigation. we're live in wood acre. pete suratos, nbc bay area news. >> thank you for the latest there, pete. new at 11:00, two people in serious condition after being hit by a car on 680 in walnut creek. our nbc chopper caught video of the crash and the backup. the victims were involved in a crash in the southbound lanes

this was him a couple hours ago as he arrived in court with his parents and his football coach to explain to santa clara superior court judge diane northway why he missed one of his community service days. and the judge did not like what she heard. she has now sentenced smith to 23 to 24 days of weekend jail starting in december. friday night through sundays. and this is because he missed october 2nd community service day. there was a long discussion in court as to why he missed that day, and his explanation to the judge was that he had a football game the night before, arrived early in the morning from sacramento, it was 2:00 in the morning. he had to be at the community service day at 7:30 on sunday. he woke up at 6:30, couldn't find a ride. he explained to the judge that he was just too tired. he reiterated to the judge that i am trying, i would like to make this a priority. as i mentioned, the judge said you can't handle this so i'm putting you into the weekend jail. kenan smith was convicted of
11:05 am
throwing his girlfriend down in a parking lot in sunnyvale last year and also beating a person who tried to come to that woman's aid. so it was judge aaron persky, the judge who sentenced stanford swimmer brock turner to six months in jail for the sexual assault of an unconscious woman who was looking over his case, and that's why the people who are behind the effort to recall judge turner have had such an issue with persky again in this case because they feel that the sentence of just about a month in jail was too lenient for kenan smith, given the crime he was convicted of. again, the judge this morning sentencing him to weekend jail starting to december. we are expecting him to be walking out of the building at any point right now. reporting live in palo alto, bob redell nbc bay area news. >> thank you, bob. samsung trying to make things right. at this very moment there are samsung employees swapping out
