4:32 am
through. south bound 101, obviously a couple lanes are closed. we have been talking about it. if you are driving down the peninsula right now it is not that slow because traffic is light. this will be a major problem getting into the silicone valley on south bound 101. they say it will not open until noon. give yourself extra time. we are looking at some other freeways. 80 west looks okay in berkeley and oakland. at the bay bridge we are looking good as you drive through. there have been no major problems. major bart delays due to equipment problems. the trains are having trouble getting out of the hayward yard. that means fremont to richmond is affected. if you go to the bay fair station you may be able to get a train because they're coming from dublin pleasanton and you can get a train to the city. hayward, fremont, those are not served because the trains cannot get out of the south
4:33 am
hayward yard. we will keep monitoring this but we are not off to a great start on bart. back to the desk. >> thank you. family, friends, law enforcement will be honoring a fallen officer. a public viewing service for michael foley will be at the concord pavilion. >> amber lee was in concord. preparations are being made by the sheriffs department and a large crowd is expected to pay respects. >> reporter: a dark pavilion awaits the funeral service for sheriffs deputy michael foley. seats are set up to accommodate the 1000 people expected. flowers and photos will arrive in the morning, a tribute and salute to a man who served in law enforcement for four decades. >> he loves his job, loves his career, loves his family, his community. >> reporter: foley spent nearly 30 years with the concord police department before he retired. he went back to work and for the past ten years was with the
4:34 am
sheriffs department in part to help pay for his 18 year old son's college education. >> mike set goals for his family and that's why he was working so hard, for his family. i think everybody can relate to that and appreciate that. it just shows you once again the character of the person he was. >> foley died last thursday, one day after he was struck by a sheriffs department bus in the parking lot of the jail in dublin. in a facebook post, one family member who called foley uncle mike questions why it's always the good ones taken too soon and so suddenly. who will carve the turkeys and do the barbecuing? in his professional life foley was a mentor to hundreds of young officers. >> at 60, he was the hardest working guy on the shift. he would run circles around people half his age. that shows you the kind of person he was. he is a rare person, a rare type of person that any boss in
4:35 am
any job would love to have. >> reporter: funeral services are scheduled for 11:00 am. deputy michael foley is survived by his wife, a daughter, and a son who plans to follow in his father's footsteps into law enforcement. a family is waking up without a home after a fire tore through their house. it happened yesterday afternoon on dell narty street near springs road. this video was posted on facebook showing the fire and damage. half of the home was already engulfed when the crews arrived but firefighters were able to quickly put it out and save the family dog who was trapped in the backyard. the house was a total loss. no one was home at the time of the fire. the cause is still under investigation. time is 4:35. the family of a 12 year old boy who says he was robbed at gun point moments after walking off a bart train is now suing bart.
4:36 am
the boy's mother blames problems with bart security and she told ktvu that bart did not do enough to investigate. >> reporter: it was still daylight when a 12 year old boy from hercules got off the bart train on april 4. it was part of his routine to take bart home from lacrosse practice in oakland. >> as a parent i tell him to be careful, look at surroundings. i am more focused on once you are outside of the bart terminal, believing that inside there is some form of safety. >> reporter: when everyone got off the train, he followed but was stopped on the platform. >> someone came from behind him and told him to go down toward the stairs. >> reporter: the boy's mother who wants to remain unidentified says the suspect put a gun in her son's side while he searched his pockets. >> he felt the only option was to run. >> reporter: he managed to escape, hopped on the next bus and called his mom. she called bart. >> we got a phone call and took down the phone report and
4:37 am
assigned an investigator. the investigator pulled hours and hours of surveillance footage and watched all of it to try to identify the victim or the suspect, to get any images. we weren't able to find any images of the victim or suspect even on the platform. >> reporter: the victim's mother says she hired an attorney after she felt bart wasn't doing enough to catch her son's attacker. she says her son helped investigators come up with a sketch but says bart wouldn't release it to the public. >> we shared the sketch with neighboring law enforcement agencies. that's how we typically handle it. we don't send every sketch to the media. it's obviously a call that you make, something that we feel the public may play a role in helping. >> reporter: there is a law suit against bart claiming they failed to properly investigate the robbery. >> my son's life has changed. ohms struggled with -- he has
4:38 am
struggled with sleeping, having to be dependent on medication, to sit and be able to function which is something he wasn't doing prior. >> reporter: the now 13 year old boy has sought emotional and psychological support through counseling. for that reason the attorney says they're suing bart for compensation because some costs have been absorbed by the boy's mother. as for security measures, a spokes person tells me they're upgrading security camera systems in july. 4:38. two lanes of south highway 101 in palo alto remain closed. >> we saw the pictures. it was closed after a dump truck wrecked. i see the blinking lights behind you and the damage caused. >> reporter: traffic is moving pretty well. but again we are down to two lanes. i will step out of the way so
4:39 am
you can see what we are dealing with. cal trans need to inspect the integrity of the over pass. if you zoom in, you can see the crack that's in that concrete right there. what we were told is a dump truck doing construction work on highway 101 was dumping a load of asphalt and he left. as he was leaving, he forgot to take down the truck bed. so the truck bed ended up smashing into that over pass. we were told it hit with such force it ended up jammed or stuck in the over pass. it actually ended upcoming off of its hydraulics, coming off of the truck itself. the driver was injured because it lifted up the truck when it got stuck and when the truck came and slammed down, we are told that the driver ended up hitting his head on the steering wheel. he was taken to the hospital. this has to shut down two lanes
4:40 am
of the south bound highway 101. we do not know if the over pass itself is closed. we haven't seen any cars cross it. but we are not sure at this point. we haven't gotten word as to whether or not it's closed or not. talking to someone at chp, they say cal trans has to look at the integrity to be sure everything is okay and it's okay to drive underneath. at this point two lanes of highway 101 are closed. >> it can be tougher as the morning commute begins. thank you. 4:40. getting help to those in need. at 5:00, with he will tell you -- we will tell you how crews plan to get supplies to people cut off by mudslides and a damaged bridge. >> a bay area national park considered one of the most deadly national parks in the country. we will tell you where and why.
