boulevard. you can see the silver sedan was split in half by the force of the impact. investigators say the car was speeding when the driver lost control and slammed into a tree around 11:30 last night. a passenger in the car was not hurt in the crash. macarthur boulevard is closed at high street while police investigate. today at first light a search resumes for a missing surfer in marin county last seen off the north end of rodeo beach apparently unconscious on the surface of the water still attached to a surfboard. anne makovec is at rodeo beach where other surfers lost contact with him. >> reporter: the search is set to resume at daylight. but this man has been in the water, we assume, all night long. so it's not looking good for him. rescuers had to give up last night after searching for about two hours. it was just too dark and dangerous to continue. the missing surfer was first spotted boar two otherrer is first in the water at about -- was spotted by two other
surfers in the water at about 5:00 last night. he was unconscious and so they tried to give him cpr in the water but it was too rough. >> a large wave came in, hit them, and they separated. the three separated. the two regrouped and tried to find the downed surfer and they were unable to. >> reporter: so the surfers returned to shore and called 911. several agencies couldn't find him. the surf last night was eight to ten feet high and the man was last seen near a cave at the north end of the beach. all we know about this missing surfer right now is he is in his 40s. the search resumes at daylight this morning. live at rodeo beach, anne makovec, kpix 5. bart is making some big changes to keep you safe after we exposed a big blind spot in its security system. we found out after a deadly shooting on bart earlier this month that most of the cameras on board railcars are decoys. outrage has since poured in from riders who say they don't
feel safe on bart anymore. a spokesman for the mass transit union says bart is working to buy and install all new cameras on board trains. >> the system was working. people didn't realize that possibly they weren't being recorded. but now that people know and the word is out, we want to make sure people know that they can feel safe on bart. >> bart is blaming a lack of funneling for the decoys but there's still no timeline for when all of the new security cameras will be installed. we are just 17 days away from super bowl 50 right here on kpix 5. there's the countdown. as the big game grows near the bay area is racing to prepare for nearly a million people all flocked to the area during super bowl week. kpix 5 reporter kiet do live in the south bay with more on how the biggest game in football could create a nightmare for drivers and those that take public transportation, as well. good morning, kiet. >> reporter: yes, good morning. government and transit folks are beating the drum early and often.
they are telling everybody in the days and weeks leading up to the super bowl, get out of your cars and use public transportation. but doing so may not be so easy. that's because none of the transit operators are adding extra commute lines to handle the crunch of commuters and super bowl visitors. the caltrans schedule set and locked in. ac transit will have bigger buses but no extra rush hour runs. muni is adding extra cars. but golden gate transit says they are not adding buses because they think they will just get stuck in traffic. >> what about the morning crush when they start shutting down streets? >> we're going to be monitoring it very closely. whether you're commuting by bus or by ferry, you should plan extra time. and it's hard to say how much time that is because we won't know until we're in it. >> reporter: now, as for bart, which handles the bulk of the transbay commute, bart is focusing their attention on the week leading up to the super bowl and the weekend of the big game. as far as adding extra cars for rush hour, muni is planning on doing it for their in-city commuters so why not bart? >> we can't because the platforms are built for 10 cars
so you can't have a train come into embarcadero station that's 11 cars long because one of the cars will be stuck back in the tube. >> reporter: so we haven't had a super bowl in the bay area in 30 years. nobody knows really what to expect. just give yourself some extra time and then adjust accordingly. frank, back to you. >> exactly. bart is going to be very popular that week. i can only imagine. but their parking lots are only so big. so what's going to give there? >> reporter: yeah. so you know, as anybody who has taken bart lately they know that those lots fill up early. they stay full late into the day and into the evening. if you plan to use them, plan on another way to get to the station because of the parking lots going to be slammed. live in santa clara, kiet do, kpix 5. >> i guess if you have a good friend in san francisco -- spend the night! >> okay. that's a good thing. but as it does get closer the bay area is starting to kick
into high gear. and san francisco's taking extreme measures to get ready. they are officially suspending all construction permits for the time being to reduce road and sidewalk closures. >> but good tip by you. >> i thought we were in a two- shot. let's kick over to sandra. >> you guys are going to let me stay with you? >> of course. perfect. >> hi there. no major traffic incidents to report on the roads but we are watching some slow-and-go conditions out there this morning. this is as you're heading towards south san jose, between morgan hill northbound 101 seeing some slowdowns out there. from time to time seeing cars about 20 miles per hour although we are hoping that will improve fingers crossed. 101 northbound from i-680 to 237 currently 14 minutes. so minor delays there. and 280 northbound u.s. 101 to highway 85 an 11-minute drive time. and taking you live to the bay bridge you can see lots of headlights out there on the roads. we are seeing some slowdowns as you approach the toll plaza.

whether the guard went too video of a bay area security guard tackling a student has sparked a heated debate over whether the guard went too far. >> i'm kiet do. we are live at levi's stadium taking a look at why the city of san jose wants to track the cell phones of people who come to the super bowl. >> we're tracking storm 11. it's going to be the last storm for a few days and i'll tell you when to expect it. >> we are loving those dry conditions today. no major accidents to report out there on the roads. however, we are seeing some slow-and-go conditions now. we'll have an update straight ahead. >> good morning, everyone. it's thursday, january 21. i'm frank mallicoat. >> i'm michelle griego. time now is 6:30. this morning search crews are set to look once again for a missing surfer in marin county. he was last seen rodeo beach floating face down and
apparently unconscious. kpix 5's anne makovec is at rodeo beach where the aerial and the water search resumes add daybreak. >> reporter: good morning. this man's family just arrived here. they don't want to talk to the media. understandably very concerned about this man who is in his 40s. we assume he has been in the water all night. the water is 54 degrees. rescuers had to give up last night after about two hours of searching. it was just too dark and dangerous to continue. the missing surfer was first spotted by two other surfers in the water at about 5 p.m. he appeared unconscious so they tried to give him cpr right there in the water but it was just too rough. a huge wave separated them and they lost sight of the unconscious surfer. >> we used all our resources in the area to try to locate him but due to the conditions we were unable to.
>> the is your first returned to the shore and called 911. the coast guard, fire department and national park service all came out to look but they couldn't find him. the surf last night was 8 to 10 feet high. the masked man was last seen near a cave at the north end of the beach. and again, the search will resume at daylight this morning. sunrise is 7: 22 when the search will resume. live at rodeo beach, anne makevoc, kpix 5. we are just 178 days away from super bowl 50 right here on kpix 5. and as nearly a million people head to the bay area, one tech company is helping businesses in san jose track your every move. here to explain is kiet do. >> reporter: yes. good morning. you know, by now it should be no surprise that your cell phone is being used to track you. government agencies have been using it for years using cell phone pinging along with wi-fi and bluetooth technology to track people. but after this super bowl the city of san jose cannot wait to get their hands on all that data.
reporter: it's the kind of high-tech study you might expect from sillicon valley. san jose is tracking hundreds of thousands of cell phones during super bowl 50 week with the help of a startup called air sage. >> their technology tracks cell phone usage, cell phone tends to ping about 150 times a day from the phones their gps location to a nearby tower. >> reporter: team san jose, the city's convention and visitors bureau, says the data will give them a clear idea of where fans stayed or visited for the week in the bay area. >> really want to see what destinations they are liking and what areas we can help to focus on for future marketing efforts. >> reporter: team san jose has been tracking phones for a year. air sage has access to verizon and t-mobile and the technology can pinpoint locations within about 100 yards. the data does not reveal the user's identity. >> i don't see, like, the harm in it. i mean, i can see the potential harm but i mean i think in this case in this scenario the wear they are using the data just so that they --the way they're using the data, just so that
they know how much the staff, what they should do, what places should be opened and closed. >> reporter: it makes sense to this man who manages a bar. >> always going to find it an invasion of privacy a little bit no matter how much they say they are not going to look at stuff but, um, with an event of this size, i know for me running this bar it's unpredictable. we don't know where people are going to be. >> reporter: and the report will be done in april. it will be handed over to the city to be used to plan big events in the future. we're live in santa clara. kiet do, kpix 5. in the runup to the super bowl, the city wants all food truck operators to have permits to prevent outbreaks of food- borne illnesses. and tonight, the public health department will hold a town hall meeting on the permitting process. it's at 6:00 in room 300 at department headquarters at 101 grove street. officials say they will shut down mobile food vendors who don't have permits. the world will be watching
here in a little less than three weeks. >> right now variable clouds a few sunny breaks, mostly cloudy skies between 60 and 62 degrees. that's our long-range forecast that i forecasted a year ago when we were talking about this. [ laughter ] >> i'm sticking with it! if you go to our kpix 5 facebook page in just a matter of minutes our traffic producer sent me this great picture of when the 49ers won the super bowl back on january 20th of 1985. he sent me that picture i'm going to be posting it momentarily. it was 31 years ago. it was in the "san francisco chronicle." that's exciting. no rain yet. but this is storm number 11 making tracks towards the bay area. it will be raining in the overnight hours tonight. this time tomorrow morning will will be rain for the morning commute. we are currently in the 40s and 50s. we are going to track that incoming system together coming up in a matter of minutes.
but first, here's sandra. >> good morning, and happy thursday to you. we are getting closer to the weekend. slow-and-go conditions out there. however, some good news. nothing major to report on roadways. we love to hear that especially on our thursday. here's some of those slow-and- go conditions right now. 580 westbound from the altamont pass to 680. currently about a 21-minute drive time. as you make your way to the bay bridge, however, this morning, that's when we are starting to see things really slowing down as we get up close to that toll plaza. 80 westbound carquinez bridge to the maze. right now a 30-minute drive. here's the san mateo bridge. lots of brake lights out there still overall things are flowing. so that's exactly what we like to see. and right now, 101 northbound in the south bay from 680 to highway 237 we are seeing slow conditions a 17-minute drive. frank? >> thank you. safety officials say a train derailment in martinez could have been a whole lot worse. three union pacific tankers cars carrying sulfuric acid derailed under 680 overpass at 8:00 wednesday morning in martinez.
it was a minor incident and there was no threat to the public but neighbors say it's too familiar a scene. in 1993, a train carrying that exact same chemical toppled over in richmond poisoning thousands. >> this is not a minor derailment. this is a near miss. this could have shut down this entire bridge you know. it could have devastated thousands of people in this region. >> ahazmat crews say the containers did not leak. as for what caused the train to derail, that's still under investigation. a snowboarder who allegedly caused an avalanche at a sierra ski resort may face criminal charges. sugar bowl officials say christian michael mares of kings beach was out of bounds and caused the avalanche last friday. investigators say he even posted video online showing the incident. they say he was trespassing in a closed area and that he put others at risk. a debate is going on in fremont over whether a security guard went too far when he tackled a student.
it happened at fremont high school on january 8. as the 16- year-old boy tried to leave an office, the guard pushed him to the ground. then he was handcuffed. a medical report shows he was under the influence of cocaine. his mother says he did not pose a threat and administrators could have defused the situation. >> very, very hard with my son. >> i don't think all that force is necessary. they're grown men and he just a kid he don't got as much force as they do. >> the boy had multiple bruises. administrators say they could not let the boy leave the office because he appeared to be high. the district police chief says the guard was running out of options although an investigation continues. california regulators are breaking down the mystery behind the end of life law. the california medical association just released guidelines explaining what kind of drugs are prescribed what a physician needs to do and how patients qualify for the option. answers are on the association's website. governor brown sign the law in
