a live look outside at san jose... drizzle across bay area welcome to monday morning, and, mist and drizzle out the door. taking a live look outside overlooking downtown san jose. the roadways are slick out there. be careful. we have reports of accidents. good morning, i hope you had a great weekend, i'm laura garcia. >> i'm marcus washington. we have a traffic alert on 101. >> laura confirmed there's it cantivety going on. a look at the map at the bottom of the screen, northbound 101. this appears not on the local, for some reason, they file these crashes in monterey. if you are home, 101 northbound. you should see a lot of slowing despite the fact the icon is covering the sensors there.
before the split, a truck carrying metal debris could not make the tight onramp. the truck is stuck on the onramp. debris across lanes. a lot of metal on the roadways. 15 minutes before a truck can get there to assess what is going on. that is an issue. you are able to take north 85 and 87 or monterey highway. that is there at the bottom of the silicon valley map. another crash at 880, i'll talk more about that crash. we had mist on the roadways. >> that is still going to be what we expect for the rest of the morning. as you get ready to head out the door, it's enough to turn on the windshield wipers and creates slick conditions on bay area roadways. looking at the high temperatures, much cooler. we see the clouds lingering through early afternoon with the highs reaching into the low to
mid-60s with upper 60s in the tri-valley, low 60s for the peninsula. san francisco, you are going to struggle to make it up to 60 degrees and upper 60s in the north bay. more on the forecast in a few minutes. >> thanks, kari. a busy night for the san jose police department, one officer hurt and several arrested after a side show. we have video from three crime scenes. >> kris sanchez is live at the police department with what we know at this point. kris? >> reporter: hi, there. we were just able to confirm that one officer was injured, vehicles impounded and people under arrest. police were not ready to say how many. this is the second sunday in a row the sjpd cracked down on side shows and street raising on city streets. this was the scene. the officer was injured where it was a raw kus night. that was one scene.
officers responded to capital expressway where racers were coming and going into the inand out parking lot. if you have been there, it is a busy stretch of roadway, so plenty of opportunity for things to go sideways there. the biggest number of arrests on capital expressway. again, police are not confirming the number of arrests, but this is dangerous because on city streets things can go wrong and fast. this is video from the sunday before. this one you can see was also quite dangerous. sjpd cracked down on street racing that night as well. we know that crowd did behave a little more violently than the crowd last night. more details for you. we have fresh sound coming from the san jose police lieutenant on the case talking about the danger of the street racing and the side shows. kris sanchez, "today in the bay." >> we look forward to hearing
that interview coming up. 4:33. growing concerns great america had a violent weekend of tlefts and arrests. listen to this. this is cell phone video of a fight and an arrest. reports of multiple fights during the halloween event on saturday. santa coll santa clara police say cell phones were stolen. security didn't do much to stop the chaos. >> they could have at least try to separate them or something, like, scare them away or something like that. do a whistle. >> get back, get back, get back. >> police had extra police officers on patrol. we pushed for answers on how it happened. they wouldn't comment on security, but all guests go through metal detectors. a taser set it off and they are
investigating how they got through security. new this morning, the number of homicides is up from 2016. this is the second straight year it's gone up. overnight, we look at the fbi data on murder rates. two of the five are in the bay area. compton is one, followed by san bernardino, oakland and richmond. some had no murders in 2016. fremont, among the largest cities with zero homicide. the first person to face charges in robert mueller's case will be named. there are multiple reports they approved the charges. former trump adviser, michael flynn and paul manafort have been under scrutiny. southern california congressman adam schiff. we know the russian government was reaching out to the trump campaign and paul manafort and others and offering information on hillary clinton.
they thought it would help the trump campaign. >> i have not yet seen any evidence of collusion. i have seen lots of evidence the russians were very active in trying to influence the election. >> that was republican susan collins, senator from maine. president trump unleashed a string of tweets sunday, one saying all of this russia talk when the republicans are making a push for historic tax cuts. is this co-incidental? not. switching gears. a lot of baseball fans are no doubt asking each other, did you see it or maybe did you see all of it? >> some of us were asleep. epic world series game five. houston astros a game away from the championship. we need an hour to show the highlights. a base hit in the sixth inning
broke a 12-12 tie and gave the houstons a walk-off win. it lasts 5:17. the astros lead the series three games to two. game six is in los angeles tuesday. >> i heard fans say, i'm just going to the movies. 4:37. coming up, amazon hasn't chosen the new headquarters location, but they recently invested in our area. how the new location will benefit customers. president trump is always talking about breaking records and he's done it again. but, not in a way he will likely brag about.
and threatening to shut down news organizations that report the truth. if that isn't a case for impeaching and removing a dangerous president, then what has our government become? i'm tom steyer, and like you, i'm a citizen who knows it's up to us to do something. it's why i'm funding this effort to raise our voices together and demand that elected officials take a stand on impeachment. a republican congress once impeached a president for far less. yet today people in congress and his own administration know that this president is a clear and present danger who's mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons. and they do nothing. join us and tell your member of congress that they have a moral responsibility to stop doing what's political and start doing what's right. our country depends on it.
