trend. mike has breaking news for the bay bridge. some developments on that crash on the span over at the tunnel. you see the flashing lights. i've been watching this shot from emeryville. i see a cluster of lights just shy of that tunnel. that could mean that the location is not the treasure island on ramp. it's the entrance to the there getting to the eisland. you see the traffic jammed up. head over to the area, fingers crossed those are two tow truck that is can clear the roadway. two left lanes blocked jamming up the westbound bay bridge commute. we'll show you the map. it is jammed up and through the toll plaza building on the berkeley curve. the other would be the san mateo bridge that's just south. traffic builds through hayward as you get over to that bridge. highway 92. be aware traffic is starting to trickle back. 6:10 right now. up next on "today in the bay," east bay addressing concerns

it's a by-product is what it's supposed to say. they said the level was close to violating federal public health standards in some spots. officials say they were able to reduce the thm levels by adjusting options, flushing out the system and then even installing a thm removal system. ro a follow-up now and corrosion is what's being blamed for the failure that caused a fireball thrill ride to break apart midair at the ohio state fair. at least that's what the manufacturer is talking about right now. one person was killed. seven others were injured when that ride deteriorated. the ride's manufacturer blames excessive corrosion on a support beam for the row of seats that broke loose. the san diego beach boardwalk has a ride made by the same manufacturer that has been shut down since the hiohio accident. changing gears right now, markets are set to pop as the dow was on a nine-day win streak. >> scott mcgrew joins us now. we got good jobs reports on
friday. >> more jobs created than expected. the unemployment rate fell. that's yet more fuel for the markets. we'll get data on inflation this week. that may help steer the fed's next decision rates. it may expand into michigan. the president tweeted friday excellent jobs numbers just released. i have only just begun. many jobs stifling regulations continue to fall. movement back to the usa. now tweeted that 15 minutes after the jobs number was released, but federal regulation s say nobody in the government is allowed to talk about the jobs number until an hour after the release, even the president. more trouble for stran stran-based wells fargo. you remember the bank created millions of accounts customers did not want and many cases didn't even know they had. there may be more. lots more. the bank warned in a filing
friday there could be significantly more than the 2 million we already knew about. on top of that you may recall last week wells fargo said it had been overcharging car loans to customers to the point some couldn't pay and had their cars repossessed. then on friday the bank paid a fine to the u.s. federal government for overcharging accusations that it overcharged veterans on mortgages. the bank admits no guilt on that but, again, one after the other, and the big one, the fake accounts, may be bigger than we thought. >> it keeps snowballing. >> you think about all the efforts of the bank to rebrand itself, so active in the community. this certainly does not help. thank you very much, scott mcgrew. happening today, it's a big day. the giants are remembering a historic home run. the one hit by barry bonds to set the all-time home run record. you see the flashbulbs go off. there's a piece of nostalgia. bonds hit number 756 to pass what was previously an extremely
important record, 755 home runs that was set by hank aaron back in the day. bonds ended with 762 which is still a record a record that stands today and not even close to being threatened. some consider it tarnished by the steroid allegations that followed bonds throughout his career. he's back with the giants as an adviser. he will be at at&t park tonight. the celebration is expect ed to be low key. the temperatures may be low, too. >> it's going to be pretty chilly. you can watch it here on bay area. if not, well, you can enjoy all the other things going on around the bay area including the cooler temperatures. >> which is nice but we have a problem right now. >> we do have that issue on the bay bridge. i want to make sure we cover that first in case folks are trying to get out of the house, have a couple more seconds and the forecast for the day. much better than what i'm
showing you. we have this view from emeryville and you see the span westbound those taillights are jammed up and i expect those flashing lights. but that cluster is what i've been watching. a couple more sets arrive. i hope those are the tow trucks they need. two of them are still blocked across the span. let's look at your map and see that traffic is building up. coming through berkeley, here is 580 and 24. rippi ripping rippling back to treasure island. the san mateo bridge is one good option. i'm tracking two accidents. brimming going to our waze system is a look oveqlre.

place saturday night at the embarcadero station and he walked up to a victim unprovoked holding on to a handrail in the b.a.r.t. train. he punches the victim for no reason and then takes off running from the scene. on thursday they're saying the same suspect, this time taking place on a train between san leandro and bay fair, the suspect getting on to the train holding what appears to be a beer in his hand and once again unprovoked that suspect hits the victim on the train with a metal object. now we learned during the news conference that metal object was a pair of bolt cutters. the suspect continued to punch and kick the victim as well and then running off the train. now here is b.a.r.t. officials talking about these two incidents at a news conference this morning moments ago. >> we're going to explore our options. it's something we've always been doing and doing more lately because of the robberies and now because of these attacks. you will see more officers on
the train in hopes of catching him while he's in our system. >> if you see something, say something. we have 430,000 daily riders. they can be part of the safety solution. by reporting suspicious activity. >> plenty of incidents for riders to be worried about. remember b.a.r.t. installed those surveillance cameras in june and that's how you're getting the clear images we showed you that morning of the suspect and as b.a.r.t. police mentioned they're going to increase visibility. if you have any information contact b.a.r.t. police. live in oakland, pete suratos, "today in the bay." >> an urgent search for that man. pete, thank you very much for the latest. 6:35. the kate steinle murder case is moving forward today. we are expecting pretrial hearings to begin. last friday a judge was selected
