they can reconstruct the accident before, during and after the collision. once they clear up- once they get the measurements we have caltrans come in move the heavy equipment to move the steel girders clean up the debris and get the freeway open so commuters can get to where they are going. >> officer, hammer we know the driver has been arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence. as of right now, though, no other injuries to report to either -- to anyone else besides the driver. is that correct? >> that's correct. this was a solo vehicle collision. it was just the one female driver in the vehicle. and she sustained non-life threatening injuries. >> officer, if you could, talk to me about the traffic backup happening now on the interstate. this is a very popular stretch of freeway as people begin the weekend. >> that's very correct.
8:02 am
880 northbound and southbound are both kind of vital lines of travel for residents of the bay area and people coming in and out of the area. when you shut down all four lanes we are diverting traffic on 23rd avenue going to one lane off ramp and back on the freeway. this is having extremely increasing commute times. it's pretty much bringing it to a stand still here. >> and in terms of detour recommendations, i mean, people can certainly take the surface streets. but another option is to take southbound 880 and make your -- especially from oakland or from the east bay to san francisco maybe down southbound and connect through one of the bridges? >> exactly. if you are going to the peninsula, you know, try to take 92, san mateo bridge. if you have to come up to oakland, you can take interstate 580. we are allowing big trucks and semis to drive on 580 at this time. if you can, avoid 880 at all
