and i'm anne makovec in for michelle. let's get a look at weather and traffic. here's roberta gonzales good morning. i'm kenny choi. >> i'm anne makovec in for michelle griego. it should be another beautiful morning across the bay bridge. the lights are sparkling on the bay bridge and temperatures have been rising. you guys enjoy what we saw yesterday? >> yes. very nice. >> mm-hm. [ laughter ] >> i can handle that. >> we struggled to get to 70 yesterday. we are 9 degrees below average in the concord, clayton and walnut creek today. temperatures gradually climb. but we have partly cloudy
conditions in the area. check out santa rosa. 46 degrees. otherwise we are in the mid-50s in san francisco. 50 redwood city. 50 in throughout the tri- valley. it is now 53 in san jose. with a few clouds drifting through, it will be warmer on the peninsula, 60s in woodside and atherton. la honda topping off in the high 60s. 70 morgan hill. santa clara valley in the high 60s, low 70s. outside number 73 degrees in brentwood north bay numbers 60s and 70s. hottest day of the week still to come. we'll talk about that at 18 after the hour. roqui. >> thank you. mass transit by the way is looking good. no current delays to report. let's start with the hot spot of the morning. the altamont pass traffic coming off 205 in tracy at just 18 miles per hour. so pretty slow in that little pocket area of red. north tracy boulevard to altamont pass will take you 29,
30 minutes. and then moving through north flynn road at just about 30 minutes. bay bridge toll plaza into downtown san francisco, now is a great time to go. carquinez bridge along the eastshore freeway to the maze will take about 20 minutes but otherwise, looking good into downtown. those metering lights will turn on in about 30 minutes. 880 to 101 along the span of the san mateo bridge will take you just 15 minutes. i'll send it to you. >> all right, roqui. thank you. video just in. i know roqui you have been talking about this crash that killed three people overnight in marin county. this happened shortly after midnight near the entrance of samuel taylor state park on sir francis drake boulevard. the chp says that car crashed into a ditch and as you can see, wraps around a tree. both directions of sir francis drake boulevard are closed right now at the entrance of the park. investigators continue to look into the crash. san francisco is expected
to cut business ties today with wells because of the phony bank account scandal. kpix 5's jackie ward is live in san francisco to tell us what's happening today reporter: later this morning we'll hear from both supervisors john avalos and jane kim as to why they think the city and county of san francisco should break the business relationship it currently has with wells fargo. so to recap for you, wells fargo employees opened two million fake accounts and now as decided in a recent settlement have to pay $185 million in fines. long-time ceo john stumpf resigned last week leaving 34- year wells fargo veteran tim sloan in charge. it's a move our state treasurer supports. >> we wanted to make sure that wells fargo puts itself back on the right course. they are making these positive steps. the fact that he decided to resign, i think, is welcome news. you couldn't leave things the way they are. you don't want a major financial institution being
stuck in the mud. >> reporter: jose cisneros the elected treasurer of the city and council of san francisco will be speaking this morning to speak about why severing ties with wells fargo is called the socially responsible thing to do and share resources in place to help those affected by bank fraud. that press conference will happening later on this morning at 10:30 from city hall. in san francisco, jackie ward, kpix 5. several women at uc- berkeley have come forward recently with sexual assault claims. and now the university is suspending social events at fraternities and sororities in response. two different women both cal students say they were assaulted at an off-campus frat party over the weekend and last month, there were five reported rapes on campus. one man was arrested. a suspect is behind bars accused in a deadly hit-and-run in san leandro. it happened yesterday at the true world foods distribution center. authorities say that one of the employees approached the suspect when he was reportedly
stealing wood pallets from the parking lot. they got into a fight and the driver in the pickup truck ran over the employee. the suspect was chased by police for hours. >> the officers tried to detain the man. he took off running. he was found hiding under a parked vehicle on 48th avenue. >> investigators are now examining the truck and surveillance video. with a recreational marijuana measure on california ballots next month the san jose city council today is considering a plan to allow pot deliveries. sandra osborne has more from san jose. you know, first it's pizza. now it's pot? where are we at, sandra? [chuckling]. reporter: good morning. that's one of the more controversial measures of this proposal that they are talking about today. whether or not to allow home delivery service of medical marijuana within the city of san jose. now some people especially those with certain illnesses say this could be a game changer. we have seen a few people reach out to city hall saying that
because of certain illnesses, they are unable to get out and about to the dispensaries as they need for some of their medical marijuana. now, of course, with this proposal which will be discussed during today's city council meeting, there are lots of proposed stipulations, as well. i'm sure you can imagine that. now, first of all, only the 16 permitted collectives could deliver cannabis. deliveries would be likely limited to only certain hours of the day. drivers would need background checks from the san jose police department along with some other possible rules about gps tracking, maybe even cameras in those delivery vehicles. now, the proposal would also change some of the current cultivation laws allowing two collectives to maybe use the same cultivation site or even have more than one cultivation site available to them. it's something again that's going to be discussed today, potentially very controversial meeting is scheduled at city hall at 1:30 this afternoon. reporting live in san jose, sandra osborne, kpix 5. voters in solano county, check your mailboxes. you should be able to get some
new ballots. about 4700 vote-by-mail and 30,000 sample ballots were sent out last week with mistakes. they were missing sections about city elections in fairfield. the replacements should arrive next week. election day is three weeks away. hillary clinton is ahead of trump in the polls. trump says the election is rigged. for more insights, let's turn to our washington insider marc sandalow. marc, what evidence is trump presenting of a possibly rigged election? >> reporter: ann averages the keyword there is evidence. cuz the allegations are big. he says that undocumented immigrants are flooding into the country in order to vote. and he is basing that on a study that was done in minnesota in 2008 that said not undocumented immigrants but unregistered immigrants might have cast enough votes to have changed a vote difference in minnesota in 2008 of 200 vote
difference. that's not a big bit of evidence. he pointed to a report out of the wikileaks that shows that the state department tried to bargain with the fbi over how to classify some of hillary clinton's emails. trump called that the biggest story of our time. it's a big deal. people are looking into it. it doesn't speak to the dishonesty of the election. he says that the media has conspired with the clinton campaign to throw the election to hillary clinton. i have not gotten my memo yet from the clinton campaign about how i'm supposed to respond to that. [ laughter ] >> but i can assure you that the media is incompetent and can't engage in a conspiracy. it is true that the media is overwhelmingly opposed to donald trump. money affects elections. in terms of evidence he presented that this election is rigged? there's very, very little. >> so marc, then, that begs the question, how much confidence should americans have in the election results? >> there's the suspicion -- my
favorite election fraud in chicago in the '50s mayor daley the democrats on the top, the republicans on the bottom. it was held by a court that only reached as high as the democrats. so you couldn't even get down there to the republicans. that's election fraud. and there are a lot of people worried in the electronic age that that could happen. all i can tell you is that "experts" say it's remote that any election could be stolen. it's so decentralized all across the 50 states that even if one county were corrupt, it would unlikely have much effect. and if you think about it, amazon gambles tens of billions of dollars every year, every day almost, on online transactions. they wouldn't do it if it wasn't secure. >> hillary clinton has been off the campaign trail for a long time. she has people working on her behalf. but no public appearances from her. what's going on there? >> reporter: they say she is preparing for the debates.
it is true that she has been less out there than any presidential case in history. it could be she is just preparing ... she may be recovering from her illness. it could be that she doesn't want to get in the way of donald trump doing a fine job of shooting himself in the foot. the good news for hillary clinton is that all three of thoseare the same strategy which is stay off the campaign trail until the debate. i was conflicted a week ago as a baseball fan a week ago. if only the right things happened i would be at the park watching the giants play the nationals. instead we have to watch a debate. >> different matchup. >> marc sandalow, thank you for the "insight" from washington, dc. 10 minutes after 5:00 now. las vegas football, very likely. how libby schaaf is trying to keep the raiders here. >> the unveiling of the sculpture today is turning heads for all the wrong reasons.
why the "art" is being questioned. >> from the kpix weather center, good morning, everybody. certainly going to be warmer today than yesterday. but not as warm as it will be tomorrow. we have that full forecast straight ahead. >> and unfortunately, in the traffic center, we are reporting a fatal crash in marin. how it's looking now and is it still blocking lanes? we'll tell you coming up. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
the "las vegas raiders" are a step closer to happening, as nevada governor brian sandoval has good morning. time check, 5:14. a live weather camera looking out towards coit tower. kind of dark out there but we have partly cloudy skies. temperatures we are settled into the 50s at this very early hour. the forecast is coming up. the las vegas raiders are a step closer to happening as the nevada governor signed a plan to help fund a new football stadium. the city of oakland, on the other hand, is not giving up on the team. mayor schaaf said, quote, i believe that the raiders and oakland have a shared identity and destiny and keeping the team in oakland where they were born and raised has immeasurable value to the fans, the team, the league and the city.
meanwhile, governor sandoval is optimistic about las vegas' chances. >> we know this is the beginning of a long approval process. but thanks to our legislature, now everyone knows what we all know, that las vegas is the perfect place for an nfl team called the las vegas raiders. [ applause and cheers ] >> any team relocation to another city requires aprobably from three-quarters of nfl team owners. when the new statue is unveiled at an east bay bart station today, it could cause double takes. a 55-foot metal sculpture called the truth is beauty towers over the san leandro bart station. some people are up in arms, though. the depiction of a naked woman is x-rated. the artist says it is not intended to be sexual. >> women are sexualized in this culture. and that they pretty much live in a world where their existence is sexualized. that's what i'm trying to
change. >> the artist is talented. i'm not sure it's appropriate for public display. >> the statue was created five years ago for the "burning man" festival. it's made from steel rods, pipes and mesh. at night, it's lit by thousands of interactive l.e.d. lights. >> glowing. >> hm. time now 5:15. let's check traffic with roqui. we are reporting a fatality in mary. let's head to the map now so we can tell you exactly where it is. sir francis drake boulevard, at the samuel p. taylor park entrance, there's a car there that a single car that crashed into a ditch and wraps around a tree killing 3 people inside the vehicle. now, chp is on scene. the investigation continues. sir francis drake boulevard is still closed and blocking lanes and if you are heading towards the coast, you might want to consider highway 1 instead to avoid all of this trouble. the hot spot of the morning the altamont pass coming from north tracy boulevard to the altamont
that commute is going to take 30 minutes so heavy until north flynn road where it gets pretty -- a little freer than into dublin, as well. moving over to the bay bridge toll plaza with icky our spider, up early this morning, carquinez bridge along the eastshore freeway to the maze, westbound will take you about 18 minutes. then through the toll plaza looking good, metering lights will turn on around 5:30. >> i think that's the oldest living spider in the history of this earth. [ laughter ] >> good morning, everybody. rise and shine! live weather camera looking out towards coit tower this morning. it's dark out there. it looks like we do have a cloud passing by. we'll call it partly cloudy out the door this morning. santa rosa clear skies and you need an extra blanket this morning, 46 degrees there. it is 50 apiece in redwood city and also in livermore. it's now in the mid-50s from oakland at the estuary to san francisco. 53 san jose.

90 inland friday, 70s at the beaches, 80s around the bay. make it a great day. a magazine cover making millions of americans feel old. >> remember beverly hills 90210 star? luke perry the show's heartthrob celebrated his big 5- 0 by gracing the cover of aarp. check it out. [ laughter ] >> it's true. >> the photo caused some fans of the show to freak out, i guess. it helps to remember that perry was 24 and playing a teenager when 902010 premiered in 199. >> in texas a rare event on the price is right yesterday. yeah. it was a three-way tie at the big wheel. three contestants spun different combinations of one dollar so that means that they won $1,000 each and then there was a spinoff which a grandfather celebrating his
45th wedding anniversary sends him to the showcase showdown. he is in yellow. losing his mind. yeah. in the end, he won a car and a cruise. >> great. >> congrats.

from isis. the pentagon says the iraqi forces are ahead of schedule as they enter the second day of fighting. with three weeks left until election day the latest cbs news poll finds hillary clinton with a lead. she is supposed to be 9 points ahead of trump nationwide when you include third party candidates. trumpdonald trump is campaigning in colorado today ahead of the third and final debate showdown. trump says voter fraud poses a significant threat at the polling booths. at the same time his wife melania is defending him against sexual assault allegations. >> i was surprised because that is not the man that i know. he was lead on like egg on from the host to say dirty and bad
stuff. >> hillary clinton's email use is going to be an issue tomorrow night. fbi reports show a close aide during her time as secretary of state contacted the fbi and tried to get the classifications lowered of one of clinton's emails. the fbi and the state department deny it. >> any really, um, assertion that this was somehow, um, um, um, "tit for tat" or quid pro quo exchanges in that manner is insulting. >> clinton is off the campaign trail this week. the michelle obama, chelsea clinton and bernie sanders are appearing for her. a tech mogul's million- dollar deflation to support donald trump is shaking things up in silicon valley. over the weekend, news broke that billionaire investor peter thiel donated $1.25 million to trump's campaign. now there have been calls for startup accelerator y [ indiscernible ] to cut ties with hole that who is a
partner. ellen pao's organization ended its combination with the company because they say their values are different. >> thiel was quiet. no one was sure whether he would get ties. it comes after allegations against donald trump. >> yc president sam altman tweeted he thinks trump is abusive and erratic but he says, quote, yc is not going to fire someone for supporting a major party nominee. medicare's open enrollment period is under way through december 7. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here to tell us how millions of beneficiaries could save money next year and potentially improve their health coverage. so, jill what should medicare beneficiaries know? >> reporter: you know, the only control that you have over your healthcare spending during
retirement is the coverage you choose. and yet less than 15% of people ever change their medicare plans after their initial signup. so if you have a medigap supplemental plan and you're in good health, definitely shop around. you may able to save some money by switching to another company. if you have a medicare advantage which is the managed care alternative to traditional fee-for-service coverage, make sure all your doctors are in the networker, understand the deductibles and the out of pocket limits as well as the prescription drug choices. here's a bit of good news. average medicare premiums are set to drop by 4% next year. $31.40 on average per month. >> what about part d drug plans? >> reporter: this is the one where you really might find a big change. because if you don't make a move, your coverage just becomes automatically renewed. but spend a little time and you
may find that you could save hundreds of dollars on prescription drugs. here's the reason why. part d plans routinely change their form form layers. odds are your current premium will be higher next year because among the 10 most popular part d plans, premiums are going up about 4%. medicare has a tool at medicare.gov/findaplan. plug in your medicare number and each drug that you take including the dose act. the tool then displays a list of possible plans, the cost, premiums and deductibles, which drugs are covered, and customer satisfaction rating. i did this over the weekend for my 93-year-old mother-in-law. and guess what. i'm saving $250 next year for her. unfortunately, she has to take

snow started falling in the mountains on sunday continuing through yesterday afternoon. kids are enjoying it. but roberta has been telling us, it should be warming up there today. plans for a large casino in vallejo were reportedly under way for months before city leaders knew about it. the scotts valley band of pomo indians is behind the casino proposal. the tribe is based in lake county and vallejo officials say that the plans began more than a year ago but because indian casinos are handled by the federal government, local leaders found out about the project three months ago. >> we were stunned. we were stunned. >> the proposed site is at highway 37 and interstate 80. critics say that the casino would make the traffic in that area even worse. the tribe contents that the casino would bring more jobs to vallejo and become the city's largest employer. today, the table is set for
president obama's last state dinner. italian prime minister renzi and his wife will be the guests. the white house has tapped a famous italian chef to serve up a dining experience. he showed off his planned menu yesterday. gwen stefani will perform after the dinner. i find it very odd that you would be -- okay, but you're serving an italian dinner to the italian prime minister? shouldn't he do something more american? he is here to visit. we're going to give him his own food? it seems odd. >> americans love italian food. the clintons put on a multi- million dollar fundraiser in new york city last night. dozens of people came out for the big event. >> now, our goal tonight is simple. we have to raise more money than donald trump lost in 1995. >> billy crystal wasn't the only actor there. dozens of hollywood elite came
