it's a busy thursday, august 8th. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> and i'm dave clark. we want to get you right to breaking news out of the south bay. crews are busy trying to clear debris from a deadly, early, fiery four-car crash, northbound 101 in san jose. one person was killed, two others were hurt. we do have team coverage on this deadly crash. sal castaneda, looking at how it's affecting traffic. >> first, though, we bring in ktvu's allie rasmus. she's live, where things have been changing. >> reporter: yes, they've made a lot of progress in toeing some of the vehicles out of the way, out of highway 101 behind us. you can see there's still just one lane of traffic open. sparse amount of traffic getting by. there is one of the vehicles from this four-car crash still here on this flatbed tow truck. about to be towed out of the way. and if you look to the left, you can see some caltrans
trucks, working to repair the highway here, after this fiery crash. part of the highway, it looks like, was damaged. so they've got the street sweepers and looks like crews out here. and looks like they're doing some patchup work to the highway. so we don't know when this northbound part of 101 at bailey avenue will be reopened. but this all started 3:30 this morning. that's when the crash was reported. and this was the dramatic scene the driver saw as they passed the four vehicles on fire. according to chp, it started with a single vehicle that spun out, hit the center divide. three other cars crashed into it. one ignited and before long, all four vehicles were on fire on the freeway. we know one person was killed. at one point, firefighters and chp had to shut down all. lanes of northbound 101, south of 85. now, they have one lane open. i was just driving home from work. man, i just saw a bunch of fire. and there was like three cars. and they're just engulfed. it was a pretty bad accident.
now, the backup from the collision extends for miles far south of bailey avenue. and a lot of the side streets from bailey avenue and monterey road. also very congested with drivers trying to find alternate ways to get around this partial freeway closure. now, in their latest notes, the chp, at 5:00 this morning, said they estimated it would take 2 to 3 hours to reopen more lanes of this highway. and so that was at 5:00 this morning. so we're looking at 7:00, 8:00, before more lanes reopen. right now, we are looking at caltrans crews, looking like they're repairing parts of this highway though. one lane still in the northbound direction at 101. live in san jose, allie rasmus. time is 7:02. let's go to sal for more on how to get around in all of this. sal? >> you can use monterey road, monterey highway there, and some of the other places there that you can get around the crash. i want to put it on the map and show you how long it is. we've had a couple of
collisions in the backup, too. northbound 101, coming from morgan hill to san jose, has been very slow. could be the reason why the san jose commute in general, beyond the crash is light. a lot of people aren't getting through into that valley. this is a look if gilroy to san jose. you can see that traffic is going to be okay. if we're talking about some of the other commutes in the east bay, those commutes have been more normal. we haven't had a lot of serious crashes here. 880 northbound. still looking pretty good. the east shore freeway, as you drive from the carquinez bridge to the mack maze. the times have been about normal. 25 minutes. and when you get to the bay bridge, this has also been a norm commute. we had a stalled vehicle here that was taken away by tow trucks. 7:03. let's go to steve with today's weather. >> the cooling continues, even though we did have some warm temps yesterday. couple of 90s holding on. one was brentwood at 90. that was yesterday. fairfield, though, was down to 86. morgan hill to 85. livermore dropped to 83.
napa, 82. not today. temperatures are on their way down. and san jose, from 78 to a cool 75. those are well below average. look at that low. it is starting to bring a little moisture in the southern end. look at something that might play into our weather late friday, early saturday. what do you mean by that? could mean some rain. again, fine-tune that tomorrow. in advance of that. fog, clouds, and onshore wind is in place. 50s, 60s, upper 40s, low 50s. around holds burg great. and sebastville, 52 degrees. 48 pull valley. 50. feels very cool for this time of year. fog will retreat. we'll have sunshine, mild to warm temps. but that low is going to continue to work its way down, move in. but not until saturday. 60s, 70s and low 80s. >> thank you, steve. time now is 7:04. texas governor greg abbott says he is ready to take action. governor abbott says the state

jose. it's one big traffic jam. that means the rest of the san jose commute has been better. a lot of people are stuck back there. and they can't get into the main part of the valley. we're looking at the east bay as well. you can see highway 4, slow through bay point. and pittsburgh at bay point. and 680 is a little slow. there's a little routine commute. no problems on the east shore freeway, taking about a half hour to drive to the maze. then another 20 minute toss sit at the bay bridge toll plaza. let's go to steve. >> very good question, sal. >> yes, sir. >> it will be cooler. >> we started that yesterday. even though some inland. today it willault be lower 80s. other than that, looks cooler. and maybe, just maybe. you might have to usher in rain. early saturday morning. tim says it's nice to have mother nature's air conditioning turned back on. gusts of 30 plus, about fairfield. and concord has come down a little bit. due west, napa airport.

so-called red flag laws already adopted by some in the state. it has been proposed in ohio. >> we think it's well thought out. we think it respects the constitution. and it also is going to save lives. >> but none of this is going to be easy. a number of these proposals raise second amendment concerns for gun rights advocates. in washington, doug luzader, for ktvu, fox 2 news. >> all right, doug. tonight, ktvu will take an in-depth look at mass shootings in america. we're going to take a look at current gun laws. and what lawmakers will do to prevent mass shootings. we hope you'll join us for a special report, guns in america. it's tonight at 10:30. here on ktvu. time is 7:38. we're learning more about the victims of a deadly house fire that happened in san jose early this week. we now know the grandmother killed in that fire was 82-year-old sydney brookbank. another family member is still

airway vicinity here. look at all of that slow traffic. this is unusual for livermore. if you're getoth freeway in pleasanton, it looks good at that point. but in livermore, it is going to be an unexpected slowdown. and at the bay bridge approach, you can see traffic is going to be busy at the toll plaza. at 8:03. let's go back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. new this morning, two lanes on northbound 101 in san jose are now reopened after a fiery four- car crash that left one person dead and two others injured. ktvu's allie rasmus joins us live at the scene, where crews worked to get it altogether cleaned up. allie? >> there are still a few lanes shut down because of this crash. but hopefully because of that backup sal mentioned will be improving. san jose at bailey avenue, now opened. you can see traffic in those three lanes being ability to move. and there's a couple of caltrans cars and trucks still out here. they were doing some repair work to the road that was

road, bringing in asphalted and sweeping. now, back here live, it looks like they're about to wrap up that road work. you see one of the two caltrans vehicles picking up, getting ready to pick up some of the cones. so it looks like they are getting ready to reopen more lanes here. and hopefully traffic will start to get back to normal here on northbound 101 at bailey avenue in san jose. live in san jose, allie rasmus, ktvu channel 2 news. texas governor greg abbott says he is ready to follow the shooting. he said he is willing to provide $5 million to help victims of the shooting and their families. he also wants to help fight those who promote hate. yesterday, the governor described saturday's massacre as an evil, hateful crime. fund for el paso victims and their families. the nfl foundation is vowing to make a matching grant. the dallas cowboys for years

welcome back. it's now 8:14. students in the oakland unified school district are heading back this monday. and the district is coming off a turbulent school year. that includes a controversial decision by the school board to cut $20 million from ousd's school budget. also, as we have been reporting just this morning, 20
principals out of the oakland's 86 schools are not coming back for the new school year. let's talk about what kind of year oakland students and their families can expect. we're hope happy to welcome back superintendent will kyla trammel johnson. >> thanks for having me. >> the best thing about a new year is it's time for a fresh start. how is oakland school district turning the page? >> we're turning the page by basically, focusing on our students and families. and we're excited to start the year to welcome back our students and families, and ensure that we have high-quality educational experiences for all of our students. so really looking forward to not looking in the past. >> what changes should students and families expect for this year? >> students and families should expect in many ways, just consistently to have dynamic and dedicated teachers and school staff that are excited to welcome students and families on the first day of school and throughout this year. >> after the teacher strike.
and the teachers came back to the classroom. we gave the teachers for the most part what they wanted financially. that has to lead to cuttings elsewhere. including -- cuts. >> some of the decisions we have to make are about expanding quality and ensuring that we're able to provide quality services, arts, music, sports, robust academics. and extracurricular activities in our schools. but we're seeing that plan in action this year. so this year, we actually have an expanded high school. one of our high-demand high schools is going to be offering more seats to students. we have an expanded 612 school in east oakland that has a graduation rate of over 90% that is going to be offering more seats so more families can have access to that program. and we've got another school where we've combined two
smaller schools. that's elmhurst united middle school. and that is going to offer more robust programming. some of those decisions are having to make adjustments to some of our schools. but the end result is being able to expand quality and programming to our families. >> what schools are at the top of the list for possible closures. >> at this time, we're really focusing on our schools that we have just expanded, which i will be visiting the first day of school. >> so you're not naming any businesses that could be on the closure list. >> we need to make sure that our board is making the final decision. we're excited about some of the changes we've made. and i'll be visiting all of those schools throughout the first week of school. >> i know that many have said, even the district itself, says there are too many schools and not enough students. how do you manage a $20 million budget cut, with the fact that you have so many properties open. each needs a principal, a secretary, a custodian. >> that is what is behind our city wide plan, is really looking at where we currently
are, making those hard decisions. and it's both a combination of having to make some of those tough decisions, being able to invest, to have sustainable quality schools. and also thinking about revenue enhancements. for properties that we're seeing that we're not using. what are ways that we can creatively use those properties in ways to enhance revenue for our district? >> what that might include? revenue enhancements? >> well, it may include long-term leases. it may include looking at other programs that may be using some of those facilities and providing revenue for our district. so we're in the middle of discussing what those possibilities can be. >> what do you say to oakland parents who are frustrated by the state of finances, some have described a broken culture within the district. as the grand jury report over the summer said. you're in charge of leading this district. tens of thousands of students and their families. what do you say to parents who might be losing faith in ousd?
>> what i say is to take a look at the work that we have done. i have been here as a student, as a teacher, through a lot of our turbulent times. and i deeply believe that stability is really the end results that are going to get us through these times. and that woo actual -- we actually have to start addressing some of those deep challenges we've had as a district. so actually making some of these tough decisions, staying in open communication with our families, with our community, about what we need to do. so that people understand the complexity. and the dilemmas that we've had for decades and the need to have the courage to actually make the decisions so that we can get on the other end and provide better resources for students and families. at the end of all of this tough decisions are being able to ensure that every student, not just some, have all of the aspects of quality in their school. so a lot of what we're doing is really about courage. my kids go to this school
district. so i'm personally connected to seeing the district become more stable. >> it is hard to find a district outside of oakland that is as passionate, as outspoken as parents, students and teachers are. >> thank you so much for joining us. oakland superintendent, kyla johnson-trammel. >> thanks for that. let's check traffic. it's been a rather busy morning for you, sal. >> that's right. we have some veteran news here. northbound 101 is getting a little better here in morgan hill and to san jose. they've opened all the lanes after a deadly crash that happened at 3:30 in the morning. it was closed maybe 20 minutes ago. they opened the lanes. and things are beginning to clear up a little bit. you can see, there's still quite a bit to go. traffic is open from morgan hill. silicon valley in general is a little slow. and now, the east bay commute is slowing down. still highway 4 and 680 are
slow. and 24 is moderate. if you're driving to the carquinez bridge. and from there to macarthur maze, it's taking 30 minutes. and you add another 25 to 30 here. 8:21. let's bring steve in with today's weather. >> thank you, sir. it's the beginning of a cooling trend. and continues today. pretty good fog bank. but there are noticeable holes in it to the west. that support is eroding. cool for many on the coast. and not bad. socal, 72. novato. burlingame. and maim low to mid-80s -- mainly low to mid-80s. onshore wind is in place. but 30-mile-per-hour gusts. and the low offshore is beginning to entrain some moisture. and that is really giving us an unseasonable pattern. that low will move in late, late friday, early saturday. there's a lot of fog. but again to the west, it's not much there anymore. 50s on the water temps are about where they should be. to a little below. and there's plenty of 50s up and down much of the california
coast. cold water. 50s and 60s on the temps here. slow to recover here. still mid-60s or upper 50s. we'll continue to do so. until that low moves in. and that will not be until saturday morning. could be some rain. certainly possible i'll update that tomorrow. cooling will take us into saturdays and warmer. sunday and monday. >> thank you, steve. coming up next. a push for new gun control laws is wrapping up. find out what president trump is saying about the possible legislation and why advocates still face an uphill battle. and scientists are testing a vaccine that would help patients fight cancer. up next, the unique therapy that turns cancer cells into something the body can get rid of.
back now at 8:25. scientists? florida are testing a vaccine designed to help people to fight cancer. researchers at morphia genesis in tampa are at the clinical trial of a skin care vaccine. they say it's not a vaccine to prevent a disease but to treat people who already have cancer. six people with stage 3 and 4 melanoma have been injected with a can seen that turns cancer cells into something the body can get rid of.
part of our long-term goal for this will be to get on some of the superficial ones that might notob the skin but that's further down the road. compostable materials may be linked to cancer. the bowls used in chipotle may contain chemicals bpa. they've also been associated with kidney and testicular cancers, as well as thyroid issues and pregnancy-induced hypertension. police chief linda scott and organizer the be available to meet. the three-day music festival kicks off tomorrow. first event outside san francisco, where adults can legally buy and sell marijuana. marijuana will only be allowed
in a designated area called grassland. admission to that area will be restricted to those 21 and older. private security will be on site for those outside. today an action to help stop gun violence. coming up, what one east bay congressman says should be done after last weekend's two mass shootings. and a special trip. we're live at the oakland airport, with how the trip was made possible as the ladies in red are about to experience history firsthand.
thanks for joining us. it's 8:30. i'm gasia mikaelian. >> and i'm frank mallicoat. let's kick it off to steve with the cool trend. >> that's correct. the fog is notex tensive. if you go, there are plenty of breaks into it. yesterday, the highs started to come down. still, though, 92 degrees. morgan hill. livermore down. the cooling continues today. palo alto, 80 to 76. down 3 for livermore. normal this time of year is 88. 74 yesterday. 75 today.
and there it is. you can see, even santa rosa, still holding onto 80. san francisco and oakland, though, still below average for this time of year. i think that will carry us into probably friday, saturday. still gusts. monsoon moisture is heading east. maybe the reno side if you're up there. that strong low, coming down for august. this is pretty impressive, this time of year. and it is beginning to tap into moisture to the south and also to the west. and some of that could play into our weather late friday and into saturday. plenty of clouds there. could burn off. breezy. we're slow to warm up here. a lot of 50s and 60s on the peninsula. upper 50s to 60s for many. look for mostly sunny skies. for tomorrow, we start to increase the clouds. and possibility by late, late friday, early saturday. not only drizzle. but light rain. santa rosa, calistoga north. but that will not be until saturday morning. 60s, 70s, 80son the
