6:00 am
hey, your shirt's making me hungry. ha ha, derek. downy and it's done. good morning. look at the radar. the bay area will get a break from some of the rain but, still, take your umbrella. we have more on what to expect
6:01 am
as you head out the door today. good morning. thank you for joining us. tuesday, january 9.i'm pam cook. >> i'm dave clark . we are starting with a serious crash in milpitas. a wrong-way driver caused a crash on southbound 880. >> traffic is very slow in the area and is expected to stay that way. alex savidge is on the scene. what can you tell us? >> reporter: a huge investigation unfolding in the southbound lanes of interstate 880, north of 237 in milpitas. according to the chp, the driver of this green minivan, on the left-hand side of your screen against the divider, the driver of that band got on the freeway early this morning going in the wrong direction, traveling north on southbound interstate going in the wrong direction, traveling north on southbound interstate 880. that van then slammed into four
6:02 am
other cars. the driver of that van, according to the chp, suffered major injuries in that crash and has been transported to the hospital. amazingly enough, according to officers on the scene, the people inside those four other cars, only one person suffered minor injuries which is incredible. i want to bring in officer janine reynolds with the chp. she's giving an update on what took place this morning. officer reynolds, good morning. thank you for your time. do you have a sense of how long the driver of this minivan was traveling in the wrong direction before the crash? >> i don't know the exact minutes but it was moments after we received the call. there were two calls of a wrong way green van traveling. we responded immediately. while we were responding it was reported there was a collision
6:03 am
shortly after the initial collision there was another collision and evolving a few other vehicles. >> we know the driver of the minivan has very serious injuries and is being treated at the hospital. amazingly enough the people in those other cars, they are all going to be okay. it's incredible to you that this wasn't worse? >> this was a recipe for disaster given the wet conditions, the time of day on this highway with commute traffic starting to pick up in this area. it certainly could have been a lot worse than it was. having only five vehicles involved and only one other minor injury is a blessing. >> reporter: let's talk about the commute. it's maybe a mile, two mile backup on the southbound direction of 880.
6:04 am
it's only going to get worse as we move into the 6:00 hour. what is your advice to folks making their way into the san jose area this morning? >> my advice is to be patient. we do have i'm cristina rendon in both directions open. that will hopefully alleviate some traffic. if you can exit at 237 and continue off at first street. that would get you around this a little faster. our advice is patience during this time. especially with wet weather, slow down and allow yourself more time between you and the other drivers. >> reporter: officer reynolds, thank you very much. i appreciate your time. obviously chp will be very busy out here for the investigation into this wrong-way crash. this is backing up traffic on southbound interstate 880, approaching highway 237 in milpitas.
6:05 am
i'm looking at the backup in the southbound direction and it extends for miles. this is certainly an area to avoid this morning. >> thank you, alex. i know you will be out there. right now we want to go to sal to give people some options to get around this. we were just talking about this. we have all had a similar near experience where there is someone coming the wrong way or it's confusing. some of the interchanges getting on and off the highway are confusing. >> we come to work when it's dark and these things tend to happen overnight when someone gets on the road going the wrong way. we saw this happened. it only took a few minutes. it was reported in two minutes later there was a crash. i'm not sure how the van got going the wrong way but fortunately only one person was injured. this is a map of the area. we saw alex reporting from there. traffic is backed up at least from mission warm springs. one of the best ways to get around this is to use 680 as an alternate. 680 is doing well.
6:06 am
let's talk about other conditions. the bay bridge is backed up to the maze this morning. the metering lights are on. that is better than yesterday when it was raining hard at this time. it's relatively dry. this is 880 in oakland. traffic is moving okay. further down near the colosseum you can see traffic is looking good. the rest of the south bay commute, northbound 101, 280 and 85 are off to a decent start. if you are trying to get off the island in alameda, at 7:00 they will do some emergency repairs before the posey tube. you may want to think about getting off the island on park, fruitvale or high street ridges instead. we will get to some of our rain total but we want to mention some thick fog. our observer, brody, on marsh creek road said to watch out for this.
6:07 am
after the rain to ports, there's a lot of moisture in the air. dew points are very close. upper 50s. that fog come without the breeze -- will form. if the breeze picks up, we would not have a problem. john said good morning. installed my new weather station in time for the storm. northwest santa rosa, 3.62. santa rosa is representing very well this morning. that is our third report this morning. kentfield, 5.25. mill valley, 4.33. oakland, 2.75. san jose, 1.70. most of the rain is done. there are some areas to the east and the south and a little bit along the san mateo, santa cruz coast. the low is driving toward southern california giving them rain. we will be drive for most but
6:08 am
you can see around brentwood, antioch, san ramon, the altamont pass, things are winding down mostly but they're still a little bit toward morgan hill and gilroy. this moisture is streaming up and clips around santa cruz and heads toward half moon bay. 50s for the temperatures which is why there is fog. there is a breeze here so that will not be an issue but closer to the bay, it is. highs today in the 50s to near 60. now we go back to the death. so far the storm has not caused any major problems in sonoma or napa county's in the areas burned by the wildfires. a flash flood watch was canceled around 2 am. people living in burned areas have done what they can to reduce the risk of debris flow and mudslides. the area did get several inches of rain and did caused flooding but that's about it. the santa rosa fire assistant marshall says this is the first
6:09 am
real significant test to see if all the precautions put into place will pay off during the winter storms. at 9:00 this morning, caltrans will reopen part of highway 35 and santa clara county that was washed away in last winter pop up storms. repair crews rebuilt the entire 200 foot section of highway 35 near the santa cruz county line that was washed away by the storms. they also built three retaining walls. in inflatable dam on the russian river is being taken down. officials with the sonoma county water agency said the removal will protect the dam and the people who live downstream. crews have started the -- deflating it because of the heavy rain. the dam, near forestville, is left on the bottom of the river when it's deflated. it's usually raised in the spring and early summer when the demand for water increases. despite the rain, the water
6:10 am
agency officials are asking everyone to conserve water. speculation is swirling around oprah winfrey and whether she has an interest in running for president. this was fueled by her speech during sunday night's golden globes and people are talking about it. doug luzader has the latest from washington. >> reporter: oprah winfrey has a lot going for her and a potential run for the white house. money. fame. popularity. but is she willing to do it? what can't oprah conquer? tv. movies. broadway. the white house? >> at this point was in president be at the motion for oprah? >> a new day is on the horizon! >> reporter: her powerful speech at the golden globes had hollywood spellbound come even political tongues were wagging. >> i question whether or not that something that oprah winfrey would be able to pull off too. don't bet against oprah. >> reporter: some close to her are apparently saying she's not interested.
6:11 am
no matter. democrats are jockeying for 2020 and may not be sold with the idea but others see a strong contender. >> i think anybody who's got the skills and values in background and success that she had would be welcome to the field of candidates. >> reporter: that would oprah be willing to leave this life behind and spend months campaigning and things -- places like iowa and new hampshire to build a campaign? >> those are tough spots to campaign. if she did that come she would be a viable candid. i don't think she's willing to do that kind of work. >> reporter: people once said the same thing about another celebrity who sought the white house. >> that was doug luzader reporting. financially, oprah winfrey and president trump are worth roughly the same amount. forbes believes that winfrey had a net worth of $2.9 billion in 2017. president schulz net worth was $3.1 billion. coach jon gruden, after almost 16 years, is back with the raiders. what to expect from today's

6:16 am
the winner of the special election was of the rest of the term which ends in january 2020. the san francisco progressive alliance says there should be a level playing field for all the candidates so they're calling on the board of supervisors to appoint someone as mayor who would pledge not to run as mayor in june. a caretaker mayor. today is the deadline to file paperwork for anyone who wants to run in the special election in june. again, so far six candidates have put their hats in the running. today is the first time the board of supervisors will meet since the mayor died. at the meeting today they are expected to discuss the process of possibly appointing an interim mayor. back to you guys. let's go to sal , following that crash and the backups. >> chp said it would be at
6:17 am

6:18 am
no major issues. if you are driving on 880 in oakland, traffic is going to be okay. northbound will be a little bit slow past high street. as we look at the rest of the south bay commutes, it does not look bad. but one accident approaching 237 is one thing but the rest of the silicon valley commute does not look too bad just yet. things are about done but fog is forming rapidly in san francisco and in other parts of the bay. if you take marsh creek road, watch out for that between brentwood, antioch and concord. there is some fog being reported. it's all about rainfall totals. 2.83 and el sobrante. the garden is very happy according to art. we are still below average for this time of year. we should have another two or

6:30 am
roads across the bay area are still very slick and wet. that is leading to crashes like this one on 680 and concord avenue. yesterday chp had nonstop calls for help. they responded to more than 100 crashes and accidents. they will be busy again today. we have a new crash to tell you about. pleasanton seminole road west of castlewood road in pleasanton. take a look at these live pictures. a car crashed into the tree and caused the tree to come down onto the road. this happened around four, 145. this car has been towed but the tree is still there. let's go to steve paulson. you have a lot to talk about. a lot of rain totals. we are almost done but the rain totals and now the fog is forming for some. look at that layer of fog
