take 280 instead of 101. this will be a big deal. the crash blocks your right three lanes. there's a number of emergency crew vehicles that have arrived but they're still waiting for tow truck. no major injuries but there are injuries and it's a distraction for the crews on scene. we're seeing traffic coming out of heyward and heading to the peninsula and you saw how jammed that will be heading north. fortunately on the east bay, no major problems toward the bay bridge. back to you. >> thanks, mike. >> well, next this hour, robo cop goes to the park. the new high-tech patrolman protecting families in southern california. >> plus, wall street sets some really big rallies with more progress today and netflix sets a big record.

$ 31 million viewers. it's hard to compare that because regular movies are measured in dollars and not viewers. but quite the achievement. the fed will release it's decision on interest rates at the conclusion of its two-day meeting today. we do expect the fed will leave rates where they are for now, but indicate itself into lowering rates in the future. president trump has said he would like to replace head of the fed jerome powell. he said rates were too high. before he was president, he said they were too low. now there's a logic to lowering ra you lower rates now during a boom time, you don't leave much room to lower them during tough times. i have another podcast for you this week. this time around a very young venture capitalist came from a very modest background. take a quick listen. >> you know, the scale of the money as someone that came from

creating some low visibility in a few spots. you need a jacket to start but warming up today at about 69 degrees. westerly with that rain again and that on shore flow. and mid 80s. it will be up to 87 in concord today while valejo reaches 75. oakland up to 73. we'll keep it cool as the fog hovers just near the coast if we clear at all today and we'll see a high of 78 degrees in parts of the peninsula. some mid 60s for san francisco. and the north bay anywhere from
61 in point rays to 96 in ukiah. so you have spots where you can cool off today and if you're spending extra time-outside, heads up, we still have a moderate amount of grass and weed pollen. right now ragweed is trending upward. >> at times it may be gusty. that will help cool off so a few more degrees. as we go into the first day of summer, temperatures going back up this weekend. and we'll reach into the upper 80s while it holds steady mostly staying in the 60s.
>> more slowing past the toll plaza and then you're back until you approach the decline getting over. things jam up because of this crash and traffic alerts. three lanes are still blocked. the left two lanes are the only two squeezing by all the activity and all the equipment from this crash. we're still waiting for the tow trucks and you're jammed all the way through san mateo. that's on the peninsula but coming over from the east bay a problem because even if you come across the bridge you have to go through the same area. some folks want to head north up toward the bay bridge because that's an option for you. they have the metering lights on but you're okay until you reach that. 880 it's is not bad and a major problem and slight build and traffic is starting to come in and in toward san francisco. meanwhile, these major routes in 101 and the 17 and up in the north bay no problem getting
over toward 101 and wait at the toll plaza. back to you. >> thanks. >> 6:20 right now, this morning, a disturbing x-ray is trending online. this is a little boy with a 10 inch knife in his face. next what doctors say saved his life. >> wow. >> first a multimillion dollar settlement for auto zone. the laws california says the company broke. you're watching today in the bay.

3.1% lump sum payment spread to help offset the pension contribution they'll make toward their benefits and one passenger tells us he has already seen some of the rides effected by a possible kick out by the drivers but we have yet to confirm that with the union. reporting live in mountainview, today in the bay. >> all right. we'll continue to follow. thanks so much. >> now to continuing coverage of the homeless crisis here in the bay area. there was a packed house. the people there would house 45 people to find jobs, find a home as well as receive counseling. debate is bringing out the strong feelings. this is on both sides. >> where do you think they will be using their drugs? you need to place them out of a residential area. >> these people aren't going to try to hurt kids. they just want to have a home.

statement contradicted by his own son. she was there when the president denied pay offs to women that turned out not to be true. she was there for the firing of jim comey as well. so there's a lot of questions to be asked. whether they'll be answered is unclear. the white house says the president has ordered hicks not to answer certain questions claiming she is, quote, immune but has not yet claimed executive privilege. this meeting is behind closed doors but we will quickly see a transcript. >> president trump launched his 2020 campaign in florida yesterday with a rally. here's the president. >> we're going to keep on fighting for every man and woman and child all across this land. with every ounce of heart and might and sweat and soul we're going to keep making america great again and then we will indeed keep america great. >> meanwhile, we're waiting to hear more about who will lead the defense department after patrick shanahan with drew his name for the position.

experiencing more traffic than normal. when you give away free items you expect a little bit more traffic. >> so are they going to make it up? >> that was my question too. >> today is a good day. i don't know. >> yeah. >> i wonder how many they really did pass out though? that's a lot of tacos. >> i saw a long line when i drove by. maybe they were giving out some. >> click on the website. >> take our lunch outside today? >> beautiful day outside today and it's going to be slightly cooler in the inland valleys. we know it's been cool and cloudy in san francisco. we start out with a look at the golden state bridge and you can tell here that it's still foggy and at times misty and drizzling so we're going to see more than that but it will clear out as we get ready for the a's game. this is something nice to take the kids out too.
as the skies clear our temperatures warm up and it's going to warm up fast. >> upper 80s to start but if you wait until after dinner it will be in the 70s and continuing to cool off later on this evening. a nice day for that with our high temperatures reaching into the upper 80s but a wide range in temperatures. if you're in the valley and you head to the coast it's going to be much cooler there and it may be awhile before we see any sun. but look at the range in temperatures from half moon bay in the low 80s. it's all because we have this on shore wind flow that shifted just a bit. not all of the valleys will see that the cooler weather. winds pick up as we go
throughout the day. our temperatures start to cool offened it will be slightly cooler tomorrow. it's going to indeed feel like summer this weekend in the valleys. but we're going to keep it cool in san francisco that june dplogloom in full effect there. >> in full effect. >> the other side of the bay as far as traffic goes, look at this. the heyward side looking to the toll plaza. all the way across. across the bay with san mateo. that's coming over and that is a problem. now if you're on the prineninsu
you can get over toward 280. that's a lot clearer. the other problem traveling north through the south bay is that car fire is now reportedly fully involved there. the car is on fire on the side of the road. a big distraction as we see that build coming over from the east bay and from parts of the south bay north 101 and westbound 237 so this traffic, also rippling back into the source of your commute where the build comes out of san jose. we'll see more and then may see more traffic shift over toward 280 to stay out of the back up if you join 85 on to 101. that is clear. now we're looking at the rest of the bay and so far everything is clear through the tri valley and getting over to the bay bridge with just the meter light at the toll plaza. back to you. >> thank you. 6:51 and happening now, breaking news about the killing of journalist jamal khashoggi. a u.n. human rights expert is calling for an investigation into the possible role of the saudi crowned prince may have played in his death. that expert is citing, quote,
