this part of town. as you try to piece together. you know the trucks collided. how do you figure out what caused the driver to lose control this morning? >> we had an initial witness statement that said that the white pick up truck that's over the edge right now actually entered the lane where they had that sideswipe collision. also to our investigation, the physical evidence bears that out. >> how much longer do you think the highway is shut down? >> i would anticipate another half hour to an hour. >> we appreciate your time this morning, again, highway 4 closed right now in both directions as they investigate a deadly crash here in brentwood. the passenger uninjured, and the other driver uninjured as well. we'll check in with you in

see how far back the traffic extends, it is bumper to bumper to the split. if you take an alternate route this morning into san francisco, a good idea, or at least leave after 10:00 this morning, that's when all lanes are expected to reopen back to you in the studio. all right thank you so much. we'll check back with you in a few minutes. more details are beingrevealed this morning, ismaaiyl brinsley had been arrested 19 times in georgia and ohio for assault and robbery. on saturday he shot his exgirlfriend in her home before getting on a bus to brooklyn. now that is where he shot officers wenjian liu and rafael ramos inside their car. they say he was mentally ill and that his mother was afraid of him. the exgirlfriend is 29-year-old
