5:02 am
altamont pass. you will see traffic once you get into the livermore area. looks okay. it turned out to be a noninjury crash that they were able to move rather quickly. so it did not have a lasting effect on the 680 commute. the road sensors are showing traffic there. let's go to the bay bridge toll plaza here. where the traffic here still look light on the way into san francisco. that includes the entire bridge. also looking at 280, looks good. we have a crash reported southbound at bear creek road. a car hit a deer. it's on the right shoulder. but watch for it if you're coming up on bear creek road, any time in the near future. now, at 5:02. let's go back to the desk. >> the golden gate bridge may be getting a high-tech update to take tolls. ktvu's christien kafton is taking a look at the proposed changes. good morning, christien. >> yeah, good morning, david. as you know, when you cross the
5:03 am
bridge southbound, from marin county, into san francisco, this is the iconic toll plaza where you pay your toll, built in 1937. but according to the marin i.j., there is a plan to keep that iconic look and add a new gantry, over just about 100 or 200 feet south of the toll plaza right over in this area here. we have an idea of what that might look like. backers say they need that new gantry to hold the technology to read transponders. right side now, say say there is simply not enough space on the old toll plaza. officials looked into that and say the optimum sight again, about 100 to 200 feet south of the toll plaza. board members are hoping to have that in place in september 2017. no word yet on the cost. so are far, there are no plans to demolish the original art deco plaz a. but some have

5:05 am
september 6th, judge aaron perski is being reassigned. he sparked a national firestorm for the controversial sentence. but a stanford law professor, who wants to permanently remove pers frethe bench says a recall effort will still move forward. >> we believe that judge perski does not understand the harm and severity of sexual assault. i think that was clearly on display, and his sentence for brock turner. >> the head of judges in santa clara county says he still supports perski. but that pers key will aid the public by distractions. the judge takes over his new duties on september 6th. meanwhile, turner is scheduled to be released from jail on friday. time is 5:05. happening today, a judge will meet with lawyers today, about the major new development involving the man who is accused of kidnapping and killing 15-year-old morgan hill teenager, sierra lamar. the judge will talk about a

involves children, that is extremely disconcerting to us. and we want to ensure that everyone feels safe in their home, as anyone should feel in any city. >> balesteros is charged with child porning pornography and three counts of using a hidden camera. police believe there may be additional victims and they hope those possible victims will come forward. a 6-week-old baby is in critical condition in san jose. the baby's father is due in court to face felony child abuse charges in this case. sheriff's deputies arrested 32- year-old matthew zavalla tuesday, two days after the baby girl was taken to the hospital. doctors say the baby had a fractured skull and several other critical injuries. hospital staff then alerts authorities who went to the child's home. sheriff's deputies say there was enough evidence to arrest the father for child abuse. his court appearance comes as doctors closely watch that
5:08 am
little baby. >> i would probably worry about nervous system, plus half an eye, retina, things like that. when you generate that kind of force, acceleration, decelleration, i'd be very concerned about that, first and foremost. >> zaballa is reportedly a convicted child abuse killer, who served time involving a case with another daughter. let's take you to breaking news now. we understand there is a fire in emeryville. caught on one of our traffic cameras. sal, you have more details? >> reporter: yes. it's fires in trees and brush in berkeley, on the on-ramp to 80 westbound. you can see that the flames are coming up pretty good. it started off as a smaller fire. i do not see the fire department on the scene here t. here they come. looks like they're coming up, rolling on the scene. so this fire which is plainly visible from the freeway, is growing pretty big. some of the tree and brush
5:09 am
there on the ashby avenue on- ramp. chp just arriving on the scene as well. looks like they have closed that off-ramp. looks like chp is shutting down that ramp right now. couple of minutes ago, we saw cars driving next to the flames, which was pretty dangerous. so the fire department in traffic. you can see them arriving. and we'll let you know. again, this is on the ashby avenue on-ramp. and that on-ramp is now closed. here comes the fire department here. looks like they might be able to get -- doesn't look big enough so that it's going to be -- going to last long, once the fire department gets there. but we'll keep an eye on it for you. >> and sal, just before you go, really quickly. this is on the east side of the freeway, right? >> it is on the west side of the freeway. >> west side. okay. >> if you're driving from the richmond side down, it will be on the right-hand side. we're pulling back to give you the perspective, pam. you can see, that's the east shore freeway, westbound. as you head out to the maze
5:10 am
westbound. and the traffic is clearly slowing because of this fire that you can see from the freeway. >> thank you, sal. we'll stay on that. time is now 5:09. san francisco police want to know who stole valuable pieces of artwork from a high-end gallery. and some back to ancient greece. the front door is left open earlier this month through a remodeling project. but the owners didn't discover the theft until they return monday. the stolen items include three vases from the sixth adventure, b.c., and two lacquer boxes from japan from the 1800s. valued at an estimated $15,000. >> somebody must have seen us carrying the things in and out, and we were vulnerable for just -- it would take one minute. they dashed in, grabbed the pieces, maybe they had a backpack. >> now, on august 1st, just steps away from the foster gwen
5:11 am
gallery, somebody broke the window to the daniel stein antique store and stole items, including silver candlesticks. police are looking into whether maybe these two cases are connected. investigators hope surveillance video may provide some clues. in the presidential race, donald trump and hillary clinton are accusing each other of racism. and as the attacks get sharper, a new poll shows the margins get wider. a new quinnipiac poll shows hillary clinton now has a 10- point lead nationally in this race. that is a lot of ground for donald trump to have to make up in a relatively short period of time. >> reporter: hillary clinton and donald trump taking their new attacks to new heights or new depths, depending on your perspective. >> he is taking hate groups mainstream and helping a radical fringe take over the republican party. >> reporter: clinton in reno, going after trump's ties to the
5:12 am
so-called alternative right. and her campaign didn't stop there. >> raising a lot of klan members like donald trump, because he believes a lot of what we believe in. >> reporter: a new web ad even uses images of the klan. >> shame on you! >> reporter: and trump on the counterattack, culling clinton a bull -- calling clinton a bully. >> hillary clinton isn't just attacking me. she's attacking all of the decent people of all backgrounds, doesn't matter, of all backgrounds, who support this incredible, once in a lifetime movement. >> but trump facing another complication this morning. a report from politico saying his new campaign ceo, steve bannon, was once charged with domestic violence involving his ex-wife. it was 20 years ago, and the charges were later dismissed. clinton, meantime, keeping most reporters at arm's length, leading to an awkward moment yesterday, when she ignored one
5:13 am
question after another to focus on chocolate. >> secretary clinton, any comment -- >> love this chocolate. >> any comment on your husband leaving -- >> and that appears to be the clinton strategy now. to run out the clock. keep the media largely at bay, and carry the lead she has nationally now, all the way through to washington. doug luzader. a cab driver, attacked with a taser. coming up at 5:30. the string of events, leading up to that attack. and the search for the people involved. but first, more fallout in the price hikes of the epipen. up income, a famous face, speaking out and cutting ties with the company behind it. we have a fire. looks like a brush fire or trees on fire. blocking an on-ramp here in berkeley. fire department got there and knocked it down rather quickly. we'll tell you what is going on and what is closed getting onto the freeway on 80 westbound.
5:14 am
looks like some of that smoke is blowing across the freeway right now. well, a very fall-like feel to our pattern. it will be cooler inland today. with some of the temps coming down, under 80 degrees for many.
5:15 am
5:16 am
welcome back to "mornings on 2", it's 5:15. we have breaking news.
5:17 am
it could certainly affect traffic this morning. looked like a pretty big fire cell in berkeley. we could see it from our emeryville camera. >> yeah, you know, the fire department got there, and just as we suspected, they're able to get on something like this rather quickly and get it under control. so what had been flames and smoke now is reduced to smoke. so they took care of it. however, the smoke is blowing across the freeway, and you can see traffic on the east shore. it's a little slow. and part of it is also because that ramp is closed a lot of lights over there can be seen by people. but that ramp is not accessible right now, onto 80 westbound. it's one of those things where it shouldn't be there for too long. but there are going to be some ramps closed in the area. >> and any idea what was burning? because there really isn't anything burning over there, is there? >> trees, pam. trees and vegetation. pretty tall trees there that were on fire, according to someone who call today in. and when the fire department got there, they just hit it with pretty good burst of water
5:18 am
and knocked it down. so it's nothing like a car or building. it's just vegetation. but you can see, the flames got pretty big at one point. >> okay. thank you, sal. >> let's move along. and now that this has been taken care of. we're going to take a look at some of the other more normal commutes here. commute from gilroy to san jose does not look bad. as a matter of fact, it is a nice-looking drive on northbound 101, driving up to morgueon hill into the main part of the valley. and it's not a bad commute. this is a look at interstate 880 now, in oakland. you can see traffic is moving well. yesterday, we had an unexpected slowdown that messed people up yesterday. i'm happy to tell you, traffic is back to normal, which is i light for this hour. and if you're at the bay bridge toll plaza, it's going to be light. today, if it's lighter, those lights may not go on. or even if they do, it's still light. we'll see what happens on this friday. we're hoping for light traffic,
5:19 am
steve. on friday light friday, right? >> don't you usually see that, folks, generally speaking, right? >> used to be old days, it was definitely friday light. >> in the old days, we didn't even start our show until about 5 5:00, right? -- 5:00, right? >> those are real old days. cooler patterns for inland. i have some people say, what do you mean, cooler? i'm freezing. i understand, believe me. people say, i got a fire going. i understand. 60s for many. drizzle out there. and inland temps will continue their march down. 60s and 70s. couple of things. fog has made it pretty far inland. and areas that don't usually get the fog. so i mean, this is a really good push. so there will be more 70s than 80s inland. and you can see, it continues to head to the east. not any tropical moisture or thunderstorms. unless you're heading down to arizona, which is going bonkers
5:20 am

5:21 am
cooling off. slightly warmer, sunday into monday, in the next week, as we say, in the weather business, interesting. >> interesting. sometimes we don't like "interesting" when it comes to weather. >> there's a definite fall feel already. >> yes. i can agree. >> many have said that. leaves are turning. a lot of that has to do with drought. multi year drought. the trees are stressed. but i think we are going into an early fall. >> okay. hopefully early rain. >> i hope. >> all right, steve. time is 5:21. we have a recall to tell but this morning. it's for a baby stroller. the u.s. consumer product safety commission is recalling these, about 25,000 strollers, named safety first step and go travel systems. there have been 30 reports of the front tray of the stroller detaching on one side. and there are fears the baby could fall out. but so far, no injuries have been reported. sarah jessica parker is ending her professional relationship with the
