5:02 am
he started swinging a knife. started stabbing everybody. >> reporter: was he yelling or anything? >> yes, he was saying let me go. let me go. that's it. >> reporter: the three employees were stabbed with a medium-sized knife, one in the back and two in the arms. all three victims were taken to the hospital and are expected to be okay. the suspect fled before police got here. last night search dogs and helicopters were used to find him. but they never did. we are live in pittsburg lisa chan, kpix 5. a stretch of the pittsburg- antioch highway is closed this morning following a deadly accident. police say a car driving near loveridge road overturned around 11 p.m. the crash ejected the two passengers from the vehicle. one died. the other was taken to the hospital. rescue workers say the overturned car brought down power lines forcing the road closure. no word on when it will be reopened. and breaking news in san jose. an early-morning house fire forces people and pets into the
5:03 am
street. kpix 5's kiet do is at the scene with the latest. reporter: good morning. looks like firefighters are wrapping up right now. they were shooting water directly into the walls of this garage to make sure that they douse any hot spots. looks like they have done that now and getting ready to clear the scene here. this all started at around 2 a.m. when neighbors noticed a lot of smoke and flames coming from the garage on the 1500 block of sundown lane. they called the fire department. the garage was fully engulfed by the time the crews got here. and residents tell us when they woke up and saw the flames it was a mad scramble to get five people and seven dogs out. but they did it. everyone is okay. they are all together now. investigators say the residents have not had power since march and they have been using generators ever since. investigators also say the tenants have been using candles to see at night. and those candles are what started this fire. san jose fire says this is not unusual in the bay area where rent is sky high. >> just before 2:00 we were notified by several callers saying there was a fire at the front of this house.
5:04 am
the first engine on scene got here and found the garage was fully involved and the fire was spread together interior of the house. >> reporter: and it looks like the red cross is now making the rounds with these residents to make sure they have the basic needs also housing vouchers and a place to stay. they will be that way for the next couple of days and it's up to residents to figure out what else to do as they try to figure out a new place to live. live in east san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. the battle over benghazi, hillary clinton testified before congress again. this time for more than 11 hours. former secretary of state and presidential candidate fielded questions about the attack on the u.s. consulate that killed four americans. and ken bastida has more on yesterday's hearings. reporter: the day started with handshakes. but the camaraderie did not last long. >> i think if you look at the statement that made, i clearly said that it was an attack.
5:05 am
>> calling it an attack is like saying the sky is blue. of course it's an attack. >> reporter: republicans accuse her the ignoring ambassador chris stevens for more security before the attacks. >> how many instances would it have taken you to say, hey, we need to look at the security over there? >> no one ever came to me and said, we should shut down our compound in benghazi. >> i'm not saying shut it down. i'm saying protect it. >> reporter: california democrat adam schiff noted the committee has canceled every, single hearing the past nine months except for this one. >> i wonder if you would like to comment on what it's like to be the subject of an allegation that you deliberately interfered with security that cost the life of a friend? >> congressman, it's a very personally painful, um, accusation. it has been rejected and disproven by nonpartisan
5:06 am
dispassionate investigators but nevertheless, having it continue to be bandied around is, um, deeply distressing to me. you know, i would imagine i have thought more about what happened than all of you put together. >> reporter: ken bastida, kpix 5. >> after the hearing, the republican chairman said that he doesn't believe clinton testified any differently than she did on two previous occasions. one american is dead after a combat raid in iraq. yesterday's raid freed 70 hostages facing execution at the hands of isis. officials say commandos killed and captured a number of islamic militants and recovered what the pentagon calls valuable intelligence. white house officials say the president never approved this mission. this is the first american to die in combat in iraq since november 2011. students at an east bay high school are recovering this morning. kpix 5's joe vazquez reports on the pills that sent nearly half a dozen student to the hospital. >> reporter: students say the chaos at pinole valley high

5:08 am
was an overreaction. >> utilizing resources for something that's inevitable is going to happen regardless. >> by inevitable you mean what? >> i mean kids are going to experiment. they are in high school. it's what happens. >> reporter: in pinole, joe vazquez, kpix 5. 8 minutes after 5:00 on friday morning. the most powerful pacific hurricane ever to make landfall in mexico will do just that within hours. we'll have the details. >> also, the incident that prompted a local transit agency to agree to a big settlement. >> and besides that hurricane patricia that brian just alluded to, we have a hurricane that will be impacting our own local forecast. i'll tell you exactly when that's going to happen. >> and it's still "friday light" at the bay bridge toll plaza. but that could change later this morning. we do have roadwork eastbound. i'll give you an update on that and a complete look at "kcbs traffic" still ahead. ,, ,,,,,,,, ♪

5:17 am
would be willing to bet that that's a totally unfeasible concept. >> in stern grove a small dog was attacked and killed by a coyote last month. near coit tower on telegraph hill our joe vazquez shot this video earlier this week of a coyote. a park ranger told joe that she has seen a coyote many times. he has a mate and litter of pups nearby. and oakland bicyclist will get more than $2 million from ac transit. that's after surveillance video shows the bus driver appears to be speeding. a warning to viewers the video is graphic. andria borba has the story. reporter: it was july 17, 2012, cara mcclendon was riding her bike alon san pablo avenue in em -- along san pablo in emeryville when an ac transit taking a turn three times faster than that agencies' regulations allowed plowed into her. >> at the moment of impact the speed's around 15 miles per hour. >> reporter: we are showing you ac transit's own surveillance video of the crash from driver

but if you want to make a difference all year long there are a couple of professions to look into that you may not have thought of. sighter technologists are disease detectives. they spend a lot of time peering through microscopes looking for abnormalities in cells helping pathologists diagnose cancer and other diseases. unlike pathologist, cytotechnologists don't need to attend medical school but require a bachelor's degree. in california, you also need a license. wages for cytotec meteorologists closely track the broader group of laboratory technologists. in the bay area these workers can expect to earn over $93,000 a year. another healthcare job you may not have considered, biostatistician. anytime you read about a health related finding like an effective cancer treatment or link between behavior and disease, those numbers were crunched by a biostatistician. you may land an entry level job in the field with only an undergraduate degree but typically will need more
