7:02 am
was flipped over. back up right now, but a lot of damage there. we'll hear from sal and brian in a few minutes. good morning. welcome to "mornings on 2." it's tuesday, october 14th. i'm tori campbell. >> it is starting busy. >> yes, it is. >> i'm dave clark. let's talk about weather and traffic. and steve is busy with the forecast. >> my feet are not on the desk, that's to for -- that's for sure. that fog yesterday, you probably could not run it. it was flying up the coast. we had 90s inland. that will not be the case today. the front is weakening but it will give us cloudy skies. 50s and 60s on the temperatures. santa rosa is at 60 degrees. usually they are the one of the cool locations. that's not the case right now. 50, even in alamo. mid-50s la fayette. pittsburg is still sleeping. somebody wake up the observer out there. fairfield west at 15.
7:03 am
concord has a south wind. most of these should start to turn southerly because the system is moving in. it will give rain to you folks in the north. cobb 41 degrees. today will be cooler with 70s inland. 60s by the coast. and a lot of low clouds. here's sal. we continue to follow developing news in vallejo where an overturned truck is causing a big mess for drivers on westbound interstate 880. brian flores is at the scene. brian, i see some activity in the background. are they moving that truck? >> reporter: yeah, they are moving that truck, sal. that's good news for commuters this morning. it's been bad news for most of the morning. i'm gonna step aside. we're standing along eastbound side 80 but the accident happened on the other side. tow truck crews are moving this box truck to the side so they can open up more lanes. in the past 30 seconds, it looks like they've opened up another lane. possibly two or three lanes
7:04 am
opened up this morning. good news for commuters. as we take a look at newschopper2, which is also above the scene, traffic, that residual traffic will be like this for quite sometimes -- quite sometime. take southbound 680 from the cordelia area if this is your normal route. from what we understand this was a box truck that was contracted out to mail service something like fed-ex. it's still unclear how the driver lost control and the box truck ended up on the side. it's still unclear how the driver is doing this morning. but it certainly caused major headaches on westbound 80 this morning. traffic backed up from vallejo all the way up to fairfield the -- fair fairfield. they've moved the truck to the side. the plan is to put the truck on
7:05 am
a flat bed. as we take a look at traffic, it looks like more lanes are opening up. that's good news for commuters. but westbound 80 big headache for several commuters want to go back to sal. there's another accident to talk about on eastbound 80. >> that's right. we have a lot of slow traffic. you mentioned the slow traffic. newschopper2 is showing us that on 80 westbound as you drive through. you can see that backup that stretches into fairfield on 80 westbound as you drive down to where brian is, westbound 80 near highway 37 even if they were to open the lanes right now, we'll have a long time for this backup to unwind getting through the area. brian mentioned a fatal accident. this is a deadly crash on westbound 780 to 80 ramp in vallejo. this crash happened about an hour and a half ago. one person was killed when they were hit by a vehicle in the area. that's now causing a big delay. i think a lot of people are stuck up the road. i also want to mention that the bay bridge toll plaza is going to be busy this morning.
7:06 am
traffic is backed up all the way out to the macarthur maze. there is a giants' game. there will be a lot of people. 680, a new crash, southbound. this is 880 near the coliseum. if we could put the map up for a second. we have a brand-new injury accident southbound 680 on the sunol grade and traffic is just a mess. 7:06. back to the desk. >> thank you, sal. in a few minutes, passengers on an american airlines flight that made an emergency landing at sfo yesterday will take off on a new flight to dallas. the passengers experienced pretty tense moments in the sky when the plane started to come apart. alex savidge is live now with more on what people on that plane heard and saw. good morning, alex. >> reporter: good morning to you. it was a surreal experience for one woman i talked to this morning who watched the cabin wall panels next to her seat begin to split apart. this happened shortly after takeoff. this was an american airlines flight that had just left sfo, headed for dallas yesterday.
7:07 am
joan denny told me that she thought maybe this plane was gonna come apart somehow. she and other passengers heard a loud popping sound near aisle 14. here's video taken by a passenger who was on board the plane. it shows crew members as they came in to inspect a hole in the cabin wall that tore open midflight. airline representatives say it was a broken air duct that caused the wall panels to come apart and the captain himself came back to take a look. he assured passengers, the damage was cosmetic. the plane never the lost cabin pressure but a half-hour into the flight, an emergency was declared and the plane returned to sfo where it landed safely. one passenger described the damage. >> we heard these popping noises. i thought something is moving around in the overhead. the next thing i knew, the wall looked like it separated from the wall. >> you think -- i don't think
7:08 am
we're gonna make it. it's very scary. really weird. >> reporter: there were some on board the flight who thought that the plane kept going way too long. they felt they had to convince the crew that this was a serious enough issue to turn around and land. this boeing 757 was taken out of service and because there were no replacement planes yesterday passengers were put up at hotels for the night and many of them are getting on a flight that leaves for dallas shortly. airline representatives are adamant that plane never lost cabin pressure during that entire situation. a lot of the passengers on board were glad that the plane returned to sfo. we're live this morning at sfo, alex savidge, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. 7:08. new this morning, a crash between a jeep and a taxicab in san francisco early this morning sent three people to the hospital and one to jail. police say around 3:30 this morning, the driver of a jeep ran a red light and broadsided a taxicab at octavia and oak
7:09 am
street. three people were taken to the hospital and are expected to be okay. one person in the jeep ran away from the scene. another person in the jeep was taken into custody. >> it came out. everything okay. i see the guy. happened to know the cabdriver. we called 911 and then police and everybody start coming in and i saw the guy, one black male about 30 to 40 year old running that way. >> police are now looking into whether the jeep was stolen and if alcohol or drugs played a role in the crash. they also want to find out if the crash was connected to -- in if he way to a burglar -- in any way to a burglar alarm that went off not far from the scene. police in campbell this morning are hoping a new sketch will help track down a man who exposed himself to a woman inside a grocery store. now, take a look at it. the sketch shows a man with a
7:10 am
-- with shaggy hair and a beard. police say he flashed a woman inside the safeway on west hamilton avenue near marathon drive. police in belmont and palo alto are searching for a man who exposed himself but the description is different. this man is described as clean- shaven. the latest incident was outside of pete's coffee on el camino real. a proposed new federal law calls for five years in prison for people who are caught climbing prominent national landmarks by the golden gate bridge. charles schumer proposed this new law after recent incidents on the brooklyn bridge, including a russian tourist, and two german artists who replaced american flags on the bridge with white flags. senator schumer says because of terrorism concerns at national landmarks trespassers have to be discouraged. in december, state lawmakers will hear a proposal
7:11 am
to rename a bay area landmark in hopper of robin williams. the wall toe tunnel -- the waldo tunnel on highway 101 in marin county, that's where robin williamsive willed for many years. it connects to san francisco where he started his comedy career. supporters say the rainbows over the tunnel are like the colorful suspenders he wore on mork and mindy. robin williams, as you know, died at his home in tiburon last august. 7:11. you've probably heard the expression, money does not grow on trees but in minnesota that expression almost seemed like a reality. a deputy found nearly $3,000 in 100 bills blowing in the wind. she thought it was leaves. >> i was quite surprised. i spoke to her briefly this afternoon. it's one of those calls that you will always remember.
7:12 am
it's not typical. it's a bit odd. >> along with the money, the deputy also found a withdrawal slip from a local bank. it turns out a customer withdrew the money at a credit union 5 miles away to pay for some work on his car. he accidentally left the money and the wallet on his trunk and drove off causing it all to just blow away. >> that's not funny but it's like wow. >> wow. and the fact he was able to get it back. >> get it back. >> thank you. 7:12. we're still following breaking news in santa clara county. ktvu's janine de la vega, she's following this, a rescue operation underway right now. an out-of-control car went down a careen near mount hamilton. it was built as a race but some are seeing red. they say the event was a complete bust. we're still looking at slow traffic. looking at the santa clara valley, northbound 280 is

7:16 am
has $16 million in a reserve fund but they are refusing to offer them a raise. we'll keep an eye on that. it's been almost a year since the sonoma county sheriff's deputy shot and killed 13-year-old andy lopez. the teenager was holding a bb gun at the time of that deadly shooting in santa rosa. deputy eric gelhaus thought it was an assault rifle. that shooting has prompted a series of angry protests in the santa rosa area over the past year. this approaching anniversary has community members there demanding more oversight of local police agencies. >> the community must have and deserves to play a critical role in the formlation of policies, funding and oversight. >> we have to believe in the people who are protecting us. we can't be afraid of them. >> just three months ago, the district attorney's office said it would not file charges against the deputy. however, a special task force has asked the sheriff to rethink the decision to put him
7:17 am

7:18 am
ago. his absence spawned international speculation that kim jung un was ill or there might have been a shift in power. but the leaders sometimes take long breaks from public appearances without any explanation other than he was experiencing some discomfort. >> all right. hey, sal, how is the san mateo bridge doing? >> well, we just got a new crash there, dave and tori. >> oh, boy. >> and traffic is going to be slow. now, the crash is reported westbound near the high rise. i'm trying to get a better location because it could be that it's actually going the other way. but they have sent the bridge out on expedite to find this crash on the san mateo bridge and we're gonna try to figure out exactly where it is. i just want to let you know that's going on. traffic is busy. it is in the westbound direction, it will be worse. let's take a look at the bay bridge toll plaza, it's that's a 30-minute delay getting into san francisco. southbound 101 in san francisco is recovering after an earlier accident at the 80 split. that cleared up before we went

let's talk about weather and traffic. the weather is really interesting. >> you weren't lying to me. i stepped outside. it's cloudy out there. we have a lot of low clouds. partly sunny, mostly cloudy for game 3. yesterday, the high was 79. today, 64, 6 a. there will be -- 65. there will be a good breeze. it won't be as nice as the past couple of days. there will be changes in the form of a few high clouds. this system is falling apart. but it will give light rain to the north. mendocino county, lake county. i doubt except drizzle late tonight and tomorrow. 50s and 60s the big message and we'll get some rain. but it's the cooler pattern. in fact, it will stay cool for a while. by that i mean 70s, not the 80s or 90s. clouds cooler, local drizzle. a lot of 70s or 60s closer to the contract. here is sal. i will show you some of these pictures. westbound bay bridge, just a little bit of improvement here. still about a 25, 30-minute
8:32 am
drive time into the city and again today will be a superbusy day in san francisco with the playoff game and dream force and just a bunch of other small events. 880 northbound and southbound is also slow getting into downtown oakland. southbound traffic is a little better on the left there. highway 4 is slow westbound as you drive westbound 4 towards 680 and a lot of slow traffic on the peninsula. southbound 101 from san mateo pretty solid down to palo alto. 8:32. back to the desk. we've been telling you all morning happening right now, a rescue operation is happening as we speak on mount hamilton. an emergency crew trying to help a 28-year-old woman who drove off a cliff yesterday afternoon. she's been there since. janine de la vega is there now and you are talking to a chp officer. what are they telling you, janine? snrgets well, right now in the

8:34 am
of there. that's our original plan. if that doesn't work, they are set up to hoist her up the hill and have the helicopter take her from the top of the hill. >> reporter: rate now, is this a challenge -- right now this is a challenge pause because of the wind? >> the wind has picked up and the terrain is giving them a hard time. they had to cut a path down the hill for the rescue crews in case they have to drag her up or bring her up the hill. . >> reporter: we're told the woman has major injuries but is conscious and breathing. >> the only thing i any she's alert. she's awake -- i no he she's alert, she's awake -- i know she's alert and awake. we don't know the extent of her injuries until we get her up here. >> reporter: from what we can see this dramatic scene, i would say about an hour ago, a rope did drop and medic came
8:35 am
down and was -- was left down there and he was assessing her along with all of the other emergency personnel. again, we haven't seen them go back up and get -- and get saved by the helicopter. they are trying to determine what to do. i just want to go back to how this all started. this all started yesterday afternoon. we're told the woman was driving on the road and the car went over the embankment. it turned upside down. the system in her car, that's what alerted authorities. however, authorities were alerted she was in the area in campbell. they went to the area, didn't find anything. this woman's mother contacted authorities, filed a missing person's report and they were able to locate and ping her cell phone and it was prout to the area of -- brought to the
8:36 am
area of mount hamilton road. it was a sheriff's deputy we heard that actually found her. this is a crazy story. have you ever heard of anything like this? >> this is pretty crazy. i've heard of good rescues or crashes where we've had them down embankments but this is a pretty good one. >> reporter: okay. thank you. and i don't know if you can tell at all what's going on right now. >> right now, what it looks like is the coast guard is still trying to test whether or not he can hold the helicopter in place while they try and hoist the basket up or they are gonna have to come up the hill with her. >> reporter: did the chp officers hike down there? >> we have two officers down there ahong with two sheriff -- along with two sheriff deputies down there when we first came here. we have four officers town there right now. >> reporter: okay. and she will be taken, then, to a hospital as soon as this
8:37 am
happens and we know that there were no other passengers with her, right? >> right. appears to be solo. we haven't gotten any word that there's anyone else. we checked the area. haven't found anybody else. we just have a solo driver as it is now. >> reporter: we can't see the vehicle overturned from our vantage point. again, just the chp helicopter and fire personnel. chp officers down there. we're gonna stay on this. if this rescue does happen in the rest of our morning newscast, we'll bring it to you. janine de la vega, ktvu channel 2 news. >> all right. we'll check back before the end of the newscast for an update. thank you. happening today, it will be a very busy day in san francisco. two huge events drawing big crowds. the dream force conference at the moscone center is one and

>> thank you. well, the ebola virus is proving to be even more deadly. this morning, the world health organization said the death rate of the people who have developed ebola in the current outbreak has gone up to 70%. that announcement comes as federal health officials are now reviewing patient treatment practices and yesterday, a patient triggered marin general hospital's protocols. the patient had been traveling overseas and came back with a feesher. it was -- fever. it was determined he was not a rick. the hospital says they have enough gear to comply with cdc recommendations but many nurses say they are still not prepared. >> each and every day we put our lives on the line. part of the fear i think among the nurses and other healthcare workers is the lack of protocol, a lack of equipment and a lot of training and education. >> nurses say the biggest
8:41 am
concern is being trained on how to properly put on the gear and also properly take it off. the cdc is also looking into whether more decontamination steps are necessary when hegg workers leave isolation units. new this morning we're learning that mark zuckerberg and his wife are donating $25 million to the u.s. centers for disease control to help fight the ebola epidemic. the charity foundation said the money will be used for the relief efforts in africa and elsewhere in the world where ebola is a threat. i believe bill gates and me linda gates also made a big donation. i know you don't eat meat. but what's in your burger? coming up, mcdonald's giving customers a rare inside look at how some of it famous food is made. it could be a major reversal for the catholic church. the action by bishops when it

8:43 am
it's a ploy "for trial lawyers to enrich themselves." and prop 46 has "too many potential drawbacks to be worth the risk." time to vote no on prop 46. to be worth the risk." decay. it's the opposite of evolution. the absence of improvement. and the enemy of perfection. which is why you can never stop moving forward. never stop inventing. introducing the mercedes-benz gla. a breakthrough in design, aerodynamics and engineering. because the only way to triumph over decay... is to leave it in its own dust. ♪ extra curricular activities help provide a sense of identity

8:47 am
pam? >> yes, they are. the political ad definitely gets your attention but many people, especially parents, are disturbed by the image of a child nearly drowning. >> i'm running for governor because every kid in every neighborhood deserves a good education. >> cashkashkari's campaign says it's a metaphor for the failing education system. critics say it violates the constitutional rights of children by making it next to impossible to get rid of bad teachers. many people, especially parents, say this ad is upsetting and it goes too far. >> neel kashkari's campaign is drowning. >> the question again is whether or not the campaign will be able to pivot to the education message which is what they are really talking about. >> people are talking about the ad and the campaign strategists agree whether you like the
8:48 am
message or not, it is doing what it was designed to do which is get voters attention. recent polls show him losing to brown in the race by double digits. pam cook, ktvu channel 2 news. let's go back to sal. have you taken care of the toll plaza? >> it's still slow. a lot of people coming into the city just for regular work and later on it will be that way getting in for the game and other things. the drive time is about a 15, 20-minute drive time if you are on the left side of the toll plaza there. also, the morning commute is moderately heavy in san francisco along northbound 101 approaching the octavia street offramp. if you are driving on the peninsula for some reason we've had a lot of slow traffic on

8:55 am
to about 1,000. it's all because of a battles between the police, the union and the city over pay, pension and disability benefits. 8:54. the roman catholic church may be moving closer toward an historic change in policy toward nontraditional families. a group of catholic bishops is calling for the church to welcome and accept gays. this push for a major change in ideology comes a week after -- after a week of meetings among bishops around the world gathered at the vatican. the bishops are also calling for more accept aps of divorced catholic couples possibly paving the way for dish voersed people who have remaried to receive communion. pretty scary moments in utah for students and parents during a field trip. >> what happened? >> she almost hit this van next to us. okay. i am awfully shaking at this
