6:00 am
look behind me. looks like they are starting to wrap up. police are on the scene and have taken down the police tape, however this is very unnerving, though, for bart riders as they get here and see police here at their bart station. here's what happened, officers got the call at 2:30 this morning there had been a stabbing here at the warm springs bart station in the parking lot. so they did find the victim. he was out on the street in his car. he was alive. he was taken to the hospital. but this just adds to the fears of bart riders given how much safety has been in the conversation lately on bart. the death of 18-year-old nia wilson last month at the bart station in oakland called into question whether bart is doing enough to keep its riders safe. riders tell us they would like to see more safety measures in place. >> my reaction to this, it's nothing new. it's sad we live in a world like this that it keeps continuing
6:01 am
and continuing. there's nothing being done about it. >> reporter: now there are two crime scenes out here this morning because the man was stabbed in the parking lot, so police have been focused on that area looking for evidence but they found him in his car on warm springs boulevard. they've also been looking out there. a lot of activity here for commuters as they arrive here for their trains. no arrests have been made, no motive in this attack has been given. the station is open and trains are running. live in fremont, amy hollyfield, abc 7 news. >> thank you. good to know it's not really affecting the bart commuters, but let's check with alexis on the commute overall this morning. >> yeah. overall we've been looking great today. we haven't had any major blocking issues. just typical slow spots starting to fill in including the bay bridge toll plaza. we're looking at this from our emeryville camera today. all the folks approaching the metering lights, those were on about 5:28 this morning. very typical and average commute.
