5:01 am
we understand you are hearing the driver fell asleep at the wheel? >> that's the bought. good morning. you can see southbound 880, the slow lane has been reopened. vehicles you see from caltrans, the wreckers and chp on the shoulder. all three lanes are back open. you can see here the damage done to the rail where the big rig clipped this, this is around 2:45 this morning, clipped this k-rail and went off here, veered right off the road into the construction area north of the stevens creek boulevard overpass. and ended up there as you can see where the people with the wrecking service are trying to remove the truck. couple of problems. some of the axles were torn off, that's going to make it most difficult. there is also a diesel spill so that's going to be needed to be cleaned up. this truck could be here for a while which could create a visual distraction during the
5:02 am
morning commute. the eta is probably within 6:30, 6:45 of getting this out of here. chp told us that the driver is okay. they did speak with him after and this is what he had said happened. >> they went ahead and administered some field sobriety tests, did not find him to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol, according to the driver of the big rig he may or may not have fallen asleep. >> reporter: so again, this is not actually on 880, it's off to the right side of 880 in the construction area. all lanes of 880 southbound at stevens creek are open. this is before the 280 interchange. again, this is more of a visual distraction than anything especially since it does normally back up here. their e.t. a., 6:30, 6:45 in that time frame to get this out of here.
5:03 am

5:04 am
33 campbell and 27 degrees in morgan hill. highs are not going to warm up by much. end up in the 50s, upper 40s, 49 degrees. and that's where we have lows earlier this week. hate to say it but it's the truth. 49 is the high and 50 degrees in livermore. we have another winter storm system on the tail of the one that came through and brought us very cold temperatures. this one is going to bring a reinforcing shot of cold air. more precipitation. a potential for low snow. let's check your drive. actually back to scott. >> sounds good. i've got more weather warnings from the national weather service. if your morning commute takes you over a bridge or overpass do be aware of black ice. chase cain is live near the san mateo bridge. i understand that's one of the worst spots. >> reporter: yes. at least that's the warning is that this could be one of the worst spots. the best news so far is we haven't seen issues, we've
5:05 am
driven across the entire length of this bridge. so far so good looking at the pavement. we'll show you pretty much dry. traffic is moving along. that is a good thing. that could change at any point with these temperatures near freezing mark. looking live at the bay bridge, pretty much the same story there. no icy patches but because we have so many bridges in the bay area, there is reason to have concern as you're driving to work or school this morning. the dumbarton bridge, san mateo bridge as we mentioned also the richmond bridge and overpasses in the north bay could be slippery and really any overpass, bridge in the bay area, could abpotential problem. bridges get cold first, they freeze before anything else will so. if there is any moisture on the road, those will be the places where it could happen. quick pieces of advice f. you
5:06 am

5:09 am
off ramp. that's center in the screen. you see the south bay moves nicely but southbound 880 down toward stevens creek i was going to say you lost a lane but as we learned they have opened up that slow lane as you pass by that stevens creek off ramp. the curve there will be restricted as they try to move that big rig and possibly past 6:30 in the morning when traffic kicks in. that will be a problem as far as spectator slowing. we'll track this. bob is at the scene. if you get off toward the area around valley fair, over on the peninsula we're talking about the potential for ice. the only one we heard of yesterday and the only one from any major roadway is 280 over durand bridge. that's the only one i heard waive ice in the bay area at least in recent years. we have the traffic flow over the open air bridge, that's what causes that to be an issue. north past the airport we have a

5:30 am
>> reporter: right now they are estimating time of having this cleaned up is around 6:45, 7:00. assuming they stay on schedule, perhaps that won't have a huge impact on the morning commute. the impact is not an actual traffic itself. this is to the right of southbound 880 before the stevens creek overpass. the issue is the fact this is a visual distraction. you could have looky whos slowing down. on southbound 880 before stevens creek not far from the 280 interchange where this backs up during the morning commute. it was around 2:45 that the driver of this big rig hauling pet food apparently fell asleep, was southbound on 880, hit the k-rail, veer off the road and ended up here, a construction site at the stevens creek interchange. what's going to take time for the wreckers that you can see here and caltrans as well, the fact some of the axles were torn off the rig.
5:31 am
that's going to make it more difficult to remove it. they have it elevated, some workers trying to stabilize it. then they also have some fuel that spilled. some diesel so that needs to be cleaned up. maybe it's around 6:45, 7:00. that's an estimated time. could be sooner, could be later. if anything it's going to be a visual distraction. all lanes of southbound 880 are reopened. they tested the driver for -- a dui test, he had not been testing, they believe he fell asleep at the wheel. he is okay, by the way. reporting live here north of stevens creek on southbound 880 in san jose, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> let's ching in mike inouye how it's going to affect the commute. >> good morning. bob said if this lasts pass the 6:45, 7:00, it's going to be a good bulk. this is 280 toward us.
5:32 am
across there with the few lights passing by left to right and right to left that's the 880-17 overcrossing south of where bob s. a lighter volume there but look at the maps. south bay, here is the construction zone. south 880 does slow. passing by the brightly lit sight of that with the tow truck on the scene. they have to clear that and that will cause slowing as we'll see. if you want to avoid that take winchester or bascom, jump on 280, then 880 soud or north to avoid that interchange as i said on the southbound side. the build starts for the tri-valley and we wend a peek at oakland. back to you. >> thanks, mike. our other story of course is weather. >> if you are still bundled up in bed stay there as long as you can. it is certainly cold outside.
5:33 am
it's hard to get up. a little competition going on, though, in the newsroom. trying to get the lowest number on the temperature gauge. i pulled over on my way in. it was 26 degrees so i was feeling confident about the low. the parking lot, bob redell like what you zbhot i got 26. >> i didn't know this was a thing. 24. >> like take that, 24. >> i walk to work up hill both ways so i couldn't get a measurement for you. i'll do it tomorrow. meteorologist christina loren, how cold was it? >> it wasn't that cold. i was in campbell soy woke up in the 30s but look at the 20s that we're getting. up in the north bay, 21 degrees in nap a, 40 in san francisco and 48 in san mateo. it's colder than it was yesterday by a few degrees. when you adjust the thermostat it makes a difference by 1
5:34 am
degree. make sure you're rode for frost, highs are going to end up in the 50s, a cool day across the board. 51 in palo alto, talking 49 in capa. 52 in oakland. 49 degrees in pleasanton. i hate to say it, love to tell you we've got a big ridge of high pressure. not until after sunday. between now and then another system comes through, this could bring a dusting of snow. i'll tell you what i'm talking about in my next report. >> thanks, christina. it is a warning to tell you about before i get in your car. be aware of black ice. chase cain live in hayward at the san mateo bridge this morning. one of the worst spots in the bay area. >> reporter: it certainly has the potential to be one of the worst spots because this is a very long bridge. as we know, bridges will freeze sooner than regular roads.
5:35 am
here on highway -- on the hayward side pretty good so far, traffic is moving. you look at the pavement, pretty dry. we drove the length of the bridge and did not find problems but that does not mean there won't necessarily be problems. there are a few spots to watch for if you travel across the dumbarton bridge. notice 92, san mateo bridge, richmond or any over passes that you want to use some extra caution. use caution on any bridge. let's check in live on the bay bring. that is a popular spot for people commuting into the city this morning. that's another place you need watch out for. say you do run into one of these isolated icy watches. never slam on your brake, never jerk the steering wheel. those can make you lose control and make the situation worse. the best thing keep your foot
5:36 am
off the grap, firm grip on the steering wheel and hopefully just a couple of seconds before you can keep moving along your way. i know you were talking about those temperatures inside your car earlier. i got to tell you, it's one thing to led to number from inside the car, it's a whole other thing do get out. make sure you put on gloves. or if you're standing outside. >> i know you want to say you kushi anchors in there. thanks. >> 5:36. sentencing for a san jose man convicted of a violent crime spree. he is expected to spend the rest of his life in prison. wilban wilban wilbanks pleaded guilty.

during the spree wilbanks and accomplice killed a 22-year-old campbell man during a carjacking. they wounded a police officer and robbed four businesses. >> los gatos police are checking surveillance video after two women reported frightening encounters with a suspicious man. the first happened on roberts road near highway 17, a woman said a strange man approached her car, opened her driver's side door and asked if she knew how to get to bay bridge. she closed her door and drove off. >> it's not fun when somebody approaches you like that. luckily she came out okay. >> 24 hourses later a waitress from the restaurant in the downtown area was held up at knife point in a back parking lot. she screamed and the would-be thief took off with nothing. investigators are trying to see if there is a connection. >> a search for a san jose pilot
5:38 am

welcome back. fast food workers walking off the job demanding better pay. 100 cities expected to participate in today's strike including oakland. tracie potts is live in washington where corporations like mcdonald's say higher pay could put the workers' jobs at risk. good morning. >> reporter: they do, good morning in fact, the mcdonald's on jackson in oakland is going to see one of the protests today where workers in california are averaging about $9 an hour. organizers say many of them need public assistance like food stamps just to make ends meet. that's what this is about. they want the minimum wage raised to $15 an hour in their industry, but fast food chains, the national restaurant association say that could mean jobs could go away. the $15 jobs require different skills nan the lower paid jobs
5:43 am
and so these workers, they argue, may actually be pricing themselves out of work. we expect some of the protests here in washington as well. federally contracted fast food workers say the president could end this by issue an executive order saying federal contractors have to provide a minimum wage, a living wage. it's still up in the air here on capitol hill where minimum wage has yet to be raised. the president agreed to more than $10 an hour but it's not something that the democrats and republicans have come to agreement on. >> tracie potts, thank you. while california has one of the highest minimum wages in the country they are talking about a $15 per hour wage that would make an impact even here on california. we should point out that san jose and san francisco has a $10 an hour citywide minimum wage. california's is $8 thanks to a recent bill signed by governor brown. it will go up to $9 an hour next
5:44 am
year. rise to $10 to match san francisco and san jose by 2016. in the bay area oakland pays the state limb wage 8 bucks an hour so it will increase when the state does. san francisco, i mentioned that already above the minimum. it will raise to 10 pds. and san whocy minimum wage, $10.15 january 1. >> 5:44. a sad and tragic story. karen johnson lives near vancouver, washington and often listens to scanners and tweets out to helpzv others to avoid hazards on the road. yesterday she tweeted about a deadly car crash on 205 in vancouver. she updated her followers, then soon realized her husband was late coming home. she urgently tweeted a trooper on the scene who realized something horrible happened. >> you started to realize she may know someone in the crash.
5:45 am
>> yes. then i went and started reading what she was posting, can't find my husband, not answering his phone, that's when i realized that this might be something that we want to deal with now. >> very sad. the trooper rushed investigators to her house to tell her in person. at 3:50 she tweeted it's him, he died. her husband has epilepsy. the car collided with a pickup truck. the driver survived but was injured. last night she was updating her followers. she has many of them tweeting my boys are finally asleep. i feel like a block of cement fell on me. my mom and mother-in-law left. tomorrow i'll have family over. i'll hear from the medical examiner. then a thought went through my mind. my hubby was wearing holy undies. how awful. a little sense of humor there. >> he is known for his action packed filmsany remembering paul walker for generosity. a jewelry store associate says several years ago the actor was
