6:04 am
>> reporter: yeah, one bart official is proposing the potential panhandling ban and other bart officials are not onboard with this idea, but this idea is being proposed to ban panhandling and busting. bust something when individuals are playing music for money on trains and stations, and probably folks have seen that when they are riding bart. the director said she felt inspir inspired to propose the ban because of some of the riders that can't get away from it. and some say it's like banning free speech, and the aclu did not say they would specifically file a suit but said they would have problems. here's what bart riders are saying this morning about this idea.
6:05 am
>> your heart goes out to these people if they are truly in need. >> i would like to see a different -- something else done. >> for the riders it would be good, especially in the rush hour. but there's no room to panhandle in the rush hours any way. >> sometimes dance ing and performing on the bart, it's not too much crowd, it okay, but with the crowd we have to move all around. >> reporter: according to bart's most recently quarterly performance report, riders are saying stations are getting cleaner when it comes to restrooms and platforms. no official vote has been scheduled for the ban. it's 6:05 right now. house speaker phronancy pelosi taking sides in the debate on

6:14 am
humid and warm with temperatures in the upper 60s and heading into the low 90s by early this afternoon. we do have more hot weather in that forecast. we will take a look at that and the fog near the coast coming up in less than five minutes. while we have all the drama in the south bay with the jam and the crash, we are looking over here towards the bay bridge toll plaza, the backup is there and drive times are not so bad but the build is up for the freeway. happy thursday as well. i want you to look at these numbers from target. they kind of look like a typo. target stock is up 20% here. the retailer says sales are strong and the online and the curbside stuff is really working out. target may be the only store to compete with amazon. san francisco's spunk says it's buying a company for $1 billion. wall street looking over the most recent fed meeting showing

6:16 am
keep the emissions where they are for their states. that means car companies can create two sets of cars, one for one set of states and the other car for the others. president trump calls the car executives foolish and said henry ford is rolling over in his grave. the state of california is pouring all kinds of resources in this fight against the white house. the white house has one very bright single staffer working alone on this who inherited the job when his predecessors moved on. bloomberg says the next iphone

6:20 am
at 96 degrees, and then coming back down to the upper 80s, and that's still above normal for the middle of next week. while san francisco stays in the 70s from now through next wednesday. mike, you are taking us back to look at san jose. yeah, the first crash just got cleared from the chp report, and that's good news, northbound 101 just shy of oakland road. behind me you will notice the traffic is jammed up here and not here, because right behind me, chp activity there, this is the disabled vehicle or the crash we saw earlier. one vehicle was left in the center divide and i think there was a second vehicle involved and we will let them sort out details. and meanwhile you have activity and the fast lane is blocked so there's a bottleneck at 680. 880 southbound, around oakland road, another crash as well. all the brake lights and folks scrambling around. things will be disrupted here from northbound 101 at capital
6:21 am
expressway. the good news is, with this clearing we should see some recovery here in time for all the traffic to take 280. and yesterday and today, lots of traffic he. and then the closure will be closed until 9:00 this morning because they are investigating the deadly hit-and-run just off san jose state campus. and then no problems getting towards the bay bridge, just a few more folks and metering lights are on. we are still sharing your kids back to school photos. >> richie in third and mark in tpo fourth year, and that's in the oak grove school district in san jose. follow us on facebook, instagram and twitter.

6:47 am
scene right there. this all happened tuesday, and in the chaos, one person was taken to the hospital and the injuries were not from gunfire. that woman that recorded this video said everybody was caught off guard. >> somebody screaming and i assume it was a gun because of the popping sound, and what i caught on my camera was essentially somebody brandishing a gun. >> during our investigation we located the victim who was injured and he was transported to the hospital for life-threatening injuries. >> so far police have not indicated if they have leads on the man seen firing the shots in the video. 6:47 right now. leaders from the world's top seven economies will meet this weekend in france. >> and scott mcgrew said they will not come to an agreement. >> they have already announced for the first time in history the countries that are going to the g7 will not sign any kind of

6:52 am
san francisco. we still have the same weather pattern set up, and it's going to stay with us over the next few days as high pressure just barely moves as we go into the weekend, but it's also giving us less wind. we are at times seeing coastal fog but it doesn't hang around very long. once that clears out temperatures heat up for the inland areas, and as we go into the weekend it will get hotter. take a look at the numbers. we're up to 93 today in some of the hotter spots. tomorrow, better but then going back up. we are looking at all 90s in the forecast until next wednesday. for san francisco, a lot of 70s as the fog quickly clears and we will get sunshine for the afternoon. the camera operator was moving it around and the view is flipped around 180. before you get too motion sick, it looks like i am running now. we have a smooth drive on the
6:53 am
left side, good stuff. no problems for the east shore freeway, and contra costa county looks great, and there's typical spots for a thursday. 680 may be recovering, but we also see, of course, your slower drive from san leandro into union city, and that's a standard spot. in the south bay, this is where most of the action has been all morning, northbound 101, that crash has one vehicle that still needs to be towed but no lanes blocked. it's your normal commute for 101 once again. 880 jammed up, and there's reports of a crash and perhaps a roadside fire, and that's just north of 101. if there is smoke that will also be a distraction and we are tracking that. on the city streets in the same area where kris sanchez is reporting, a deadly hit-and-run crash near san jose state.
