6:03 am
traffic backed up beyond 580. it's inching closer to alcosta boulevard. give people a heads up if they use this route. 84 people are using isabel from 580 out of livermore down towards 680. you can also use sunol boulevard. that's open. but traffic is starting to stack up along that stretch, as well. more coming up in the next traffic report. thank you. a live look at the supreme court this morning. a final vote on brett kavanaugh's nomination to the bench could come as soon as tomorrow. in a little over an hour, the senate will vote on a measure that would end debate on the nomination. reporter laura podesta explains how kavanaugh's trying to win over any ded sena nominee brett kavanaugh is defending his emotional testimony last week. cehi! >> ir>> rcoeportes r: in an op. ed. in the "wall street journal,"

expect as we head through today through the weekend coming up. back to you. we're learning more about the man accused of killing a south carolina police officer and wounding several others. investigators say that 74-year- old fred hopkinsa vietna veteran and accomplished marksman, shot and law enforcement officers approaching his home to serve a search warrant on wednesday. during the two-hour standoff the gunfire prevented officers from rescuing their colleagues. hundreds of mourners paid their final respects. a single blue candle burned in officer carraway's honor with his police car outside the church. a man is in critical condition after crashing his pickup into a horse in concord. the accident happened around 3:45 this morning on kirk pass road. the southbound lanes are still shut down right now. police had to put the horse down due to the severity of its injuries. a relief for commuters in los gatos this morning.

all lanes on highway 17 are back open following a major big rig crash. yesterday, a truck carrying an excavator slammed into the blossom hill road overpass about 5:30 p.m. after miscalculating a turn. crews last night cleared it. the accident left concrete debris from the overpass all over the highway. again, all lanes are now open. all lanes are open on 17, but all lanes are closed on southbound 680. and this again involving a big rig and 27 tons of dirt stilled in the road. so this is for drivers making their way through pleasanton this morning. we are tracking a major backup and chopper 5 is over the scene to show you this crash. this is as you approach bernal. you can see emergency crews are on the scene. and they are letting traffic use that center divide to get past the scene of the
6:17 am
accident. that's single file. so you're definitely going to need to give yourself plenty of extra time. the backup stretches well beyond 580 and it's inching closer to alcosta boulevard. this is taking over an hour to go from 580 to 84. that commute usually takes about 10 to 12 minutes with no delays. so give yourself some extra time. you can use highway 84 if you are coming from 580 or sunol boulevard. that will get you back on 680 and hopefully at the speed limit again. no time as to re-opening of the lanes. though delays likely to stick around throughout much of the morning commute. so no "friday light" conditions along that stretch. we're also tracking a sluggish ride for drivers on 880. this is typical. we haven't seen any crashes along this stretch out of san lorenzo down into hayward. but it's about 20 minutes down to highway 84 there. ramp to westbound 37 currently

a good job of that. and investors don't seem to find a humor in this as tesla stock is falling by 3.5% after dropping by 4% yesterday. the stock market overall with a pretty muted reaction to the jobs report. let's go to the big board and see how we're doing in the early going. the dow is up 35. nasdaq up 20 after dropping nearly 2% yesterday. and the s&p it's up by 7 points. michelle and kenny, back to you. >> jason brooks from kcbs radio, thank you. 6:47. as we turn toraff, a bit of a messy commute literally. >> literally. yes, we are tracking a major accident and it's dirty because we have 27 tons of dirt on the road. this is southbound 680 as you approach bernal. and this was a big rig that overturned on its and currently blocking all lanes ofde trasiffic. so we are in the red and right now traffic is able to get through that stretch using the
