8:00 am
a car crash earlier this morning. >>and word came out that that car was involved in a police chase yeah, it's been quite the scene will tran has been there all morning long so let's see if we've learned anything new will. >>well since the last time he saw me the update is i did see a tow truck circling this area talking to police officers so looks like it's getting closer to wrapping up, although it might be another 30 minutes to an hour or so, but you can clearly see is an active scene there's that blue honda that slammed into the side of that home let me quickly pull up a map for you so you know the exact location. this is lower haight and the intersection is that waller and fillmore this all happened at around 03:30am in the morning actually james and yuri a. the pursuit didn't last that long it actually started that market and castro which is tops maybe a half mile from the scene. not exactly sure what prompted police officers to begin the
8:01 am
pursuit, but we do know that it will when through the streets came to this particular location where a squad car you can clearly see that suv right there that san francisco suv but the flashing lights that was involved in the accident as well that sent the blue car careening into the home. the driver of that blue honda had to be extricated from the car that actually to rip open. the roof just to get the driver out we do know that the driver was rushed to the hospital with life threatening injuries. 2 police officers were in that suv they suffered injuries, but fortunately, we're not hearing, i've any life threatening injuries to them that muni bus believe it or not that was involved in the accident as well, although you don't see any noticeable damage but the front end was clipped and there obviously was a driver at the time they came up to the intersection so that driver was a witness there talking to the driver that that many buses part of
8:02 am
the investigation and if you're wondering why even though it's been almost 5 hours since this collision and usually they wrap up pretty quickly. the reason why they're doing this is because they're taking measurements from all 4 corners for approaches to this intersection and because it involved 2 police officers who were injured which is why it's taking a little bit longer then say a typical accident. back to you. >>all right some dramatic pictures there thank you well. >>time now is 8 '02 might take you a little longer to navigate your drive this morning is all the fog is pretty dense out there and it doesn't matter it where you are you're seeing it in one form or another job, yeah, it's all across the bay area, sometimes it's usually closer to the coast in the bay, but this time around khost bay and inland areas all getting in the mix with some dense fog this morning. so it's going to slow you down regardless of where you're at i'd say just give yourself a few extra moments as you get out the door this morning. >>and don't rush that commute. you can see outside from our
8:03 am
sutro tower cam some of our tallest of hilltops are picking up through the fog but well the rest of us are down in the soup this morning. you can see outside on radar that we are dry at least we've traded in the showers we had the past couple of mornings with fog that will only be with us for a few more hours see do have sunshine to look forward to concord nevado san francisco. these are among areas where visibility has fallen below a mile and will continue to be that way over the next couple of hours between 10:11am i'm anticipating the most of clearing to occur. we'll still have some patches of fog and some of our bridges going over the bay but most of our inland areas and even some spots on the peninsula north they will have really cleared out by then into the afternoon ahead, there's your sunshine an opportunity to step outside enjoy the 60's will eventually get to 40's and 50's are current temperatures hayward alameda in oakland, each in the 50's some of your warmer spots. well saint helene and santa rosa, some of your cooler areas at 4041 degrees
8:04 am
this morning. so my advice get outside with that jacket don't need the rain jacket today just something to keep you a bit warmer today and of course you got to get outside a little bit earlier because the fog is holding up traffic on some of our bridges robin we have multiple fog, advisories favorites looking really great that's right great here at the bay bridge is an advisory for the richmond sandra fell and the golden gate john as you talked about so you need to be extra cautious out there driving through the fog because it can be dangerous just like driving in the rain. >>here at the bay bridge toll plaza we haven't had any major like yesterday when the roads were so we had so many spinouts and overturns it's quiet now, but it's slow so you're stocked up from the maze of 60 minutes to make it and we had an accident on the upper is sure it's gone stop go traffic out of richmond albany berkeley emeryville on down to oakland 23 minutes is it ok drive time, but you are recovering from those earlier issues and still very busy on highway 4 through pittsburgh on over to concord you're at 30 minutes here for one 60 out to 2.42 saw keep my eyes on the slowdowns will check more
8:05 am
traffic coming up james darya all right, thank you very much robin. >>so back to one of our big stories this morning on the national front the united states has now surpassed another devastating milestone in the ongoing covid-19 pandemic 250,000 americans now have died from this disease. a quarter million americans that is a higher death toll than any other country in the world right now. it's also more than twice the number of us service members that died in all of world war one. and as we get closer to developing a vaccine. we now know that ucsf has been chosen as one of 7 early vaccine, distribution sites in california. so ucsf is monitoring the progress of a covid-19 vaccine. the one that pfizer announced that would be about 95% effective once it reached market early distribution of the pfizer vaccine at ucsf is planned to begin next month. now the front of the line are going to be frontline health care workers who are treating covid-19 patients and other members of high-risk groups so
8:06 am
they will get prioritized the vaccine then will go to the general public and it's expected that that will happen sometime in the spring of next year. >>iris cases are on the rise in san francisco, the city is now asking residents. not to go to its government operated testing sites. if you're just going to get tested before the holidays. and that includes testing sites like in the city the sf city site which is at the embarcadero appointments there are all booked up through december 2nd supervisor matt haney says that site and a few others in his district are important for essential health care workers. those have been exposed to the virus and other people who don't have health insurance. >>the worst thing would be for our testing sites to be so oversubscribed to have a backup. await that people who really need to get tested because they might have been exposed is they might have symptoms because they might have no other option. i can't get tested. >>so what are your other
8:07 am
options. there are other sites to choose you can look online to just do a search of where you live go to your doctor. they recommend going to your primary doctor if you have questions about that there's also a way that you can get there are whole testing sites that will send you a kit at home you do it then you send it back. >>in the east bay contra costa county now reporting more than a 100 complaints related to covid-19 health order violations in the past 10 days which is partly why the county now has moved back into the purple tier which is the most restrictive phase of reopening here in california. with that roll back the county's covid-19 task force now is focusing on stricter enforcement. >>restaurants, but it can be be you know things like a cross fit the lawn. it can be outdoor dining where there's not social they could be indoor which now isn't allowed. you know how hard it is for businesses right now. we want to support them. but ultimately they need to follow public health i did that
8:08 am
really important to stop the spread of the virus. >>the county's task force is made up of the health department the sheriff's office and the department of conservation they'll be responding to complaints that come in about businesses and people not following the rules. >>happening today, the west contra costa county unified school district along with several other organizations are offering you. a deal. yes, it's a flu shot drive-thru clinic. and you get the shot in the arm, but on the plus side. so that's not so fun, you get a turkey and food, but yeah, and all free kron 4 sarah stinson live in cocoa county with more hey sarah. >>hey there. yeah here live at the west contra costa unified school district office in richmond where they're expecting nearly 700 students to come through this drive-thru and you don't even have to get out of the car you get a flu shot while you wait for that to settle in and make sure all good. you can come through and they will fill your car with a week's worth

of food, and they'll make sure that you get a turkey for thanksgiving now joining us live right now matthew duffy superintendent how excited are you to be able to offer this to families who are really is quite frankly struggling right now it's a fantastic opportunity for us you know we have had. >>but as you said almost 700 students who haven't been immunized and if and when we get back to real school they're not going to be allowed to enter the school building. so it's really important that we get this done and so we've created a really special day for families to come we've partnered with different community organizations and medical associations to get the shots you'll see behind me one of the stations we're going to have families drive up. they're going to go through stations, they're going to get their shots and if they're also in thanksgiving support a we can help them with that also is part of our community food program and that's a lot of things people are stressing out about quite frankly people aren't focusing on flu shots.
8:10 am
they're worried about coronavirus and this is something that people still need even if you're not a student. >>people need to realize flu shots are needed. but what is the need in your district in terms of food and flu shots, i mean, he's got a great need during this pandemic people still are jobless tremendous need it's been a very difficult for people to get appointments at medical clinics its people are fearful to come out. since the pandemic started we've given out over 4 million meals in our district so we know there's tremendous food insecurity in our community so we're trying to support that. >>and then trying to get students kids their basic immunizations and of course a flu shot if we can do that too. >>that's awesome. thanks so much for joining us in this event starts at 9 o'clock this morning. and it goes until 4 o'clock they have like all the appointments full, but if you need food and you already have that flu shot here in this district as well they have 15 other schools that have turkey and food that you can go and pick up from 8 o'clock to 1 o'clock we have a list of all

8:15 am
going to be a nice thing to look for to of course the rainfall that we had the past couple of days really eased off yesterday afternoon. so as we make our way through today we're going to see additional clearing and by the afternoon some pretty favorable weather for getting out there. >>this is your look outside right now on radar. there's definitely no rain falling or a practically anywhere in the state. just a couple of spots right up there near the oregon border so we've definitely come down from yesterday and we're now just in a holding pattern of dry weather daytime highs comfortably cool in the 60's. foggy mornings in some afternoon sunshine we're going to get plenty of that later on today, daytime highs will still remain cool. even though we will see some additional sunshine 50's and 60's for your highs with more 50's right along the coastline today and then 60's for really the vast majority of the rest of the bay, mid 60's for a few spots on the peninsula like foster city one of our warmer spots at 65, san jose santa clara and sunnyvale at 61 today. well 50's and 60's for east bay cities like hayward on up through oakland. concord

>>and we're back in a 23 happening today, a new set of workplace regulations will be decided the california occupational safety and health administration also known as cal osha is set to vote on a sweeping new proposal guidance has been in place since the beginning of the pandemic but the stronger standards would give officials more tools to enforce the rules. >>just should to do is it does expand their authority. and it does not allow an employer to play games with that inspector comes. >>new standards now would mandate and in force social distancing and the wearing of face coverings while in the workplace. it would require employers to identify and notify all workers who may have been exposed to a covid-19 positive case within one business day so very fast contact tracing. the new rules would also require companies to provide free testing to all employees who may have been exposed and to keep a record
8:25 am

>>and welcome back. it is 8.28 on thursday morning conditions out there today definitely foggy no rain like we saw the past couple of mornings but we're holding on to something almost entirely different that may be slowing down a bit snow wet roadways. but some poor visibility for sure let's get a look outside from our sutro tower cam and you can see that's kind of actually cleared out pretty decently over much of san francisco. there's a definite still fog out all the way down to san bruno mountain if you look in the distance looking down peninsula. it consistently dry conditions can be expected from this point on in the forecast. we are going to be seeing these foggy mornings though this one likely to be the densest though especially for inland areas conquered nevado and san francisco all seeing visibility falling below a mile right now now as we work our way later on this
8:29 am
morning, especially between 10:11am i'm expecting most of our clearing to occur which will certainly be nice considering how great it's been so far today and by the time we work towards 2.30 this afternoon. we've got sunshine out there 60's to enjoy and definitely nicer conditions for stepping outside as of right now if you are getting out there put the jacket on where in the 40's and 50's starting off this morning, a touch cooler than we did yesterday santa rosa and saint helene and each at 41 degrees for your current temperatures so it's definitely cool. it's definitely great to kick things off that is making for a slower commute into work for many of you and it's not just for the coast either for our bridges hats for inland areas. i mean look at the golden gate right now looks like nighttime almost totally doesn't it reduces the visibility driving across the span which can be dangerous so yeah writes it's time change it for flipping it over to carla the fog covering the golden gate hiding the towers here that's going to impact your drive into and out of san francisco. so we'll
8:30 am
keep warning you be careful be cautious people despite out. >>in the fog and the rain as well so your drive is quiet. i don't have any crashes or stalls for the golden gate or the north bay so we're putting at 24 minutes that's completely normal from the bottom to the toll plaza here in the bay bridge carlo the fog rolls in and out now we can see the ad overcrossing coming out of west oakland which is backed up heavily not only here but beyond overcrossing but through the bottom of the maze and it's been holding there. >>throughout the morning but i like it when we don't have anything extra right no extra crashes are hot spots in the mix just the typical crowd at 13 minutes to san francisco. we're checking in on 6 ad that looks good the dumbarton bridge is in great shape. no problems livermore to dublin or brisbane to san francisco on northbound one oh one we'll continue to check more drive times more coming up in a bit darya james. thank you robin let's get back to the breaking news which is in san francisco where a car crashed into a home after police kron four's will tran has been our eyes on the scene all morning long. let's get out there once more for the very latest good morning. well.
8:31 am
>>3 people are in the hospital the breakdown is 2 police officers and there's the suv and you can clearly see the front end damage to that squad car and then the suspect he was in that blue honda as you can clearly see careened out of control and slammed into the corner of that house there this is at the intersection of waller and fillmore this is in lower haight it's a couple of blocks from market street. in fact this pursuit did not last very long perhaps. only half a mile this all ended at around 03:30am in the morning. so it was a very short pursuit, although it ended with the suspect in the hospital right now with life threatening injuries why there was a pursuit in the first place that's still under investigation, but it actually started at castro and market and through the streets of san francisco slammed into the
8:32 am
corner that house the 2 police officers in that suv were injured they were rushed to the hospital as well, although we are not hearing of life threatening injuries to them. police officers they are taking measurements because it involved one of their own they're being very careful building their case. it also involves muni you can see that bus right there. you don't really see a lot of damage to it at all but according to investigators. one of those 2 cars clipped that muni bus. so that's now part of the investigation and of course the driver was a witness to all of this and they are talking to the driver to get more details as to why this started in the first place that's still under investigation. but we do know. it will be here for quite some time probably will not wrap up until later this morning. back to you. >>thanks a lot. well, 32 right now and with the pandemic and the new surge in covid cases lot of people are not comfortable, with a whole
8:33 am
