"today in the bay's" kris sanchez is live at the chp office in san jose this morning with what officers just told her this morning. kris? >> reporter: good morning to you, laura. often when we see someone hit and killed on a freeway on-ramp,
the investigation lasts a very long time. this investigation wrapped up very quickly because the chp officer told me around 5:00 this morning there really wasn't anything for them to collect, very little evidence for the vehicle that struck and killed that man. they will say that they are considering this a hit and run crash because the driver did not stop when he hit that man. he left him to die in the middle of tully road on-ramp onto southbound 101. moments later good samaritans saw the man in the roadway and called 911, stayed with the victim until the san jose fire department arrived. at that point the man had already passed away. the coroner will work to identify him and notify his family. here are the details the chp hopes will jog your memory this morning. if you got on to 101 south via tully road on-ramp heading west between 1:00 and 1:15 this morning. the victim is a hispanic man in his mid to late 40s. the roadway is open once again this morning.
chp wrapped up the investigation at the scene. earlier this week there was a different vehicle hit-and-run, a pedestrian. in that case the chp was able to cobble together a vehicle description based on parts of the car that were there at the crash scene. they're hoping perhaps they can do that today, also hoping someone will call them with information. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> thank you nor the latest there. here is a story we'll be keeping a close eye on this morning. students at uc berkeley will stage a walkout after an internationally acclaimed professor was accused of sexually harassing a students. students will be walking out of class from 9:00 a.m. to noon today during the normally scheduled class time for a course taught by professor nezar alsyaad. the university has told students enrolled in the class they can leave the class and take it with another teacher. alsyaad's lawyer says he did nothing wrong.

countries. those comments left many people in japan worried at a time when the threat from north korea appears to be rising. mike pence will be busy today. we mentioned he's talking to top party leaders. his plane landed within the last 20 minutes. he's going to be joining a meeting at the house gop conference. this afternoon he's expected to meet with senate majority leader mitch mcconnell. he also plans to get together with democratic leaders chuck schumer of the senate, house minority leader nancy pelosi, obviously local congresswoman. 6:o 5. the search is on for the person who left an anti muz lum note on a car in a popular hiking trail. police say this note was left on a carali at mission peak in fremont. the car belongs to nickie, a blogger who suffers from lupus and wears a bandana for sun protection. she thinks the person who wrote the message assumed she was

good morning. the time is 6:13. microclimate weather for napa. in the north bay, 34 degrees. it will warm nicely as we go through the day, talking about low 60s there. i'll have a look at the complete microclimate forecast and a look ahead to a wet weekend in just a few minutes. just seconds ago, chopper arriving, northbound 880. crews are trying desperately to clear what looks like debris, fluid and looks like vehicles from the roadway. >> we'll give you an update. >> we'll continue to follow that one. 6:13. a warning in san mateo county after a mountain lion was
spotted. someone saw one, possibly two mountain lions near fox hill in woodside about 6:30 yesterday night. sheriff's deputies responded but couldn't find the animals. if you ever come across a mountain lion, they say don't run. face the animal, make some noise and try to look a little bigger by waving your arms. >> don't run. easy for you to say. 6:14. a bay area police chief says a school principal crossed the line while protesting president-elect donald trump. this is not about the protest itself. our cameras were there last night as the antioch police chief addressed the antioch and pittsburg school boards, speaking about a protest that took place last thursday. pittsburg high school students walked out of class and went to antioch high school. cell phone video shows the protesters jumping fences and in some cases pushing right past school administrators. the police chief believes the high school principal walking with the students is partly to
blame. >> my goal was to make the board understand this is more than a few students and not a peaceful incident. >> we cannot physically stop 200 students. clearly our desire was for them not to leave campus. >> the principal says he did not condone the protest and only left campus to make sure the children were safe. the school board will make changes to ensure this doesn't happen again. when it comes to booster seat safety, the insurance institute of highway safety is out with a new report that finds 48 out of 53 booster seats score the highest possible safety ratings. consumers are being told to avoid just two of all the seats available in america. >> unfortunately there were a couple boosters that made our "not recommended," two made by dorrell that put the lap belt too high up on the child's belly. >> dorrell has not responded to today's report but has some seats that did make the list.
eight years ago only 25% received top grade. booster seats are for children typically four to eight years old. it all depends on their weight. 6:16 right now. the holiday travel season kicks off on friday. nearly 7 million people passed through san francisco airport between tomorrow and early january. that's up 6% from the same time last year. the busiest day, what do you think? it's expected to be november 27th. >> not the wednesday. >> no, no, it's the sunday after thanksgiving, everybody coming home. airport officials say it's best to arrive three hours early if traveling internationally and two hours if you're traveling within the u.s. don't push it like i do all the time. silicon valley venture capitalist walking back earlier statements when he said california should secede, leave the united states. >> many fact, cot mcgrew, he's claiming he never said it at
all. >> shervin person her is the guy working on the hyper loop. he was very unhappy donald trump won the election. he's an outspoken fell he on many issues. this morning he's explaining to people he did not mean for his comments after the election to be construed as he was pushing for california to secede from the united states. lots of mainstream news agencies thought that's exactly what he was saying. here is an article from our sister network cnbc. he wants to help california secede from the u.s. but he says he never said that. he had a quote this morning that said, i do not believe in ses cession, nor will i ever. i never use that term. i love this country and everything it has to offer. now, where did we get the idea he was for secession. it could be he announced if trump wins, i'm funding a legitimate campaign for california to become its own
nation. he said gavin newsom should be the president. when asked about the cal exit, he said, yeah, he was totally serious about it. but he's walking that back a little built. the sec is not going to pursue further rulings. it's assumed donald trump will reverse previous rulings like net neutrality so commission members won't work on further ideaing including cable box reform. net neutrality treats all data on the internet equally. google says it won't be able to spend money to send data faster. wall street will try to resume its positive ways. the dow snapped a seven-day winning streak. watch what happens to the gavel. dennis quaid has the gavel. he's ready to go, bang, bang, bang. once again they need a new gavel. this is not the first time this has happened.
speaking of troushl hitting things, the mets will open the nasdaq. >> dude, come on, man. that is not cool and way too soon. >> a little salt in the wounds. >> you know what? he might be going to san francisco giants. the loss could be the giants' gain. >> keeping a close eye on something chilly out there. >> better bundle up if he comes here. >> waking up to cold temperatures across the bay area. there is a frost advisory in effect until 8:00 this morning in many parts of the north bay. i don't know what is so funny right now. here is a live look outside. you can see downtown san francisco on the top left of your screen. down down san jose on the top right and san rafael there, all that traffic on the bottom left. emeryville on the bottom right. >> you better bundle up. we'll get to the forecast in a bit. but first major traffic problems out there. >> lighter volume overall. but two key spots causing major problems. we'll show you our chopper is
over the scene. this is northbound 880 at 237. it looks like now over on the left one lane may be getting by. you see a flatbed tow truck, see fluid on the roadway. they have to clean up whatever that is. looks like engine fluid, absorbant. we have a number of chp vehicles. folks off to the left north 880, folks going through calaveras trying to navigate. at one point chp said ten vehicles. i think that might have been an overestimate of the number of vehicles involved. we'll show you on the map how this plays out. here is the bay. overall looking really good. that chopper shot we just showed you has traffic jammed up north out of san jose up towards 237, mccarthy boulevard, zanker road on the west, 680 an easy drive getting up toward the area. you cross calaveras or farther north at mission and you are clear from all of that problem. as we zoom out, you see the rest of the bay showing a lighter
flow of traffic. a slow build for north 101 approaching thanksgiving. we're seeing a lot lighter flow as folks heading out of town. a second crashed 880 from davis to a street. traffic getting by and only half the lanes backed oup off the castro valley y. nine minutes approaching redwood road toward 880 on 238. this right here, this is good actually from 238 down toward the dumbarton bridge through that mess. it's only 18 minutes, but you are backing up out of oakland. one more shot as we look at your bridge travel times, slow drive across the san mateo bridge, 33 minutes. kari has the forecast. >> mike, those drivers are cranking up the heater and an extra hot cup of coffee needed for that long drive. as you head out the door, don't be surprised. it is really chilly out there. a live look at san francisco, beautiful start to the day.

rain. the seven-day forecast clears it out for a couple days. rain once again saturday and sunday and another chance early next week. i'll have another update, sam and laura, in a few minutes. >> we'll look forward to that. thank you, kari. a bay area man's phone bill jumps from $60 to nearly $1,000.

c'mon in, pop pop! happy birthday! i survived a heart attack. i'm doing all i can to keep from having another one. and i'm taking brilinta. for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin. no more than one hundred milligrams as it affects how well it works. brilinta helps keep my platelets from sticking together and forming a clot. brilinta reduced the chance of another heart attack. or dying from one. it worked better than plavix. >>don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers, a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. tell your doctor about bleeding,

many cell phones do. students say an at&t agent sympathized and told him the company could reduce his phone bill, but because his account was set to auto pay and the balance had already been paid, their hands were tied. no refund. he says he spent months trying to change at&t's stance but failed. he called us. at&t then took a second look at stephen's account and granted him a $1,005 refund. at&t sent us a statement and it said, we worked with the customer to solve this issue and apologized for any delays. it went on to say its goal is to deliver an exceptional experience for its customers every time they interact with at&t. if you have a consumer complaint, you can let us know about it. call 1-888-996-tips, or visit nbcbayarea.com/responds. coming up to tomorrow, a fee for not showing up at the airport. back to you. 6:27 right now. coming up next on "today in the bay," it is now legal for adults to smoke pot recreationally in

him there to die. this is definitely classified as a hit-and-run crash because the driver did not stop, leaving that man to die in the middle of the tully road on-ramp on to southbound 101. moments later good samaritans did see him, called 911 and stayed with the victim until the san jose fire department arrived. at that point the man had already passed away. the coroner won't release his identity until his family is notified. here are the details that could jog your memory. the chp says this was on the 101 southbound direction, the tully road on-ramp is where the man was hit and killed. this was between 1:00 and 1:15. i put together a map, you can find that on my twitter feed. we can tell you the victim was a hispanic man in his mid to late 40s. >> if anybody was in the area around that time, if they could please call their local chp office and provide details, we'd greatly appreciate it.
>> reporter: the roadway is open again this morning as the chp wrapped up the investigation pretty quickly. they said they did not find a lot of debris which would help them try to track down the driver. in a more recent case of hit-and-run unrelated on 580 earlier this week, the chp did find some pieces of a vehicle that struck a pedestrian there. they were able to cobble together a vehicle description and they now know which vehicle they're looking for. that's the hopes for today. and that with input from the public they might be able to track down that driver. in san jose, kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> thanks to the very latest. 6:36. new this morning, a troubling act of racist graffiti discovered inside the restroom at a bay area high school. this is a picture from the bathroom at monta vista high school in danville. you see the two urinals, one with the word whites and the other with colored written above it. a statement from the

south carolina governor nikki haley is being considered as secretary of state even though she publicly opposed trump >> an immense amount of talent out there. >> reporter: including -- >> we discussed the transition. >> how did it go? >> reporter: former new york mayor rudy giuliani and former u.n. ambassador john bolton. there may be enough democrats and republicans to block both. >> i don't think you really want your chief diplomat to be an advocate forward. >> reporter: vice president elect mike pence is in charge of the transition. today he's back in washington meeting with top leaders from both parties who could choose the next supreme court justice even with a republican majority, confirmation may not be easy. >> to say the least i think they have another thing they better think twice about that. >> reporter: hillary clinton made her first public appearance since the election urging democrats not to give up. >> please don't lose heart, don't give up on the values we share.
>> reporter: meantime the top democrat on the house oversight committee wants to know if anyone has been requested for security clearance from the trump transition team. donald trump himself and his spokesperson have said that they have not requested security clearances for his children or his son-in-law jared kushner, at least not at this point. >> we'll have to stay on top of that. a family member of the three people killed in a triple murder in the east bay is now speaking out. the transgender woman accused of those murders faced a judge for the first time yesterday. daniel rivers made national headlines nearly two decades ago when she lost her teaching job in sacramento after telling students of her gender reassi reassignment surgery. rivers is accused of killing charlotte reid and patricia white and the couple's 19-year-old son at their oakland home last week. their other son said rivers knew
his mom and had been to the house before, but he has no idea he says, what prompted a deadly attack on his family. >> i'll just say to ms. rivers, i don't understand why you would do this. i was raised on the fact that we have a lot of love in this household and in this family. >> prosecutors have not revealed a motive for the crime. the recreational use of marijuana is now legal in california. new this morning, we've learned students at stanford won't be allowed to light up on campus. despite the passage of proposition 64 last week, students, faculty and staff are not allowed to possess, use or grow pot on stanford property. that includes off-campus housing. this is according to the "mercury news." here is why. marijuana is still illegal under federal law. university officials say the campus receives federal funding for several things including research and financial aid. time is 6:40. as you head out the door, a live look outside at san rafael.
