bay. a car has gone off the road and into a dorm at the uc berkeley campus. the driver has been detained? >> reporter: yeah. they are still trying to figure out what went wrong and that's why the driver was detained. but not arrested. i was briefed by uc police and a much calmer scene out here right now. we're on college avenue right near channing. it it was around 2:56 this morning and a driver jumped the curb and lost control and crashed into the building. this is putnam hall, a dorm. students start school tomorrow. the dorm was filled with people. someone hit the fire alarm and the students evacuated. everyone got out okay. but that driver actually hit a gas meter outside and fractured the gasoline. there was a gas leak for some time but i spoke with pg and e and they told me that was capped within about 20 to 30 minutes so the latest we have here is that
those students that were evacuated and brought to another hall here near uc berkeley are actually being allowed back in at this hour. everyone is accounted for. everyone is okay. and we asked if perhaps drunk driving might be to blame for this and what uc police are telling us is at this point they don't know. they are trying to speak with the driver. that's the latest. a developing investigation this morning in san jose as police try to figure out who is behind a deadly stabbing at a safe way in east san jose. it all happened late last night. the victim was found inside the store on story road between capital and white road. it was the seventh killing in eight days. the city may be calling for back up as early as today. stephanie chuang is live in san jose with what may be happening there. good morning. >> reporter: john, good morning to you. the police chief here in san
jose says he may be reaching out to the chp, to the california highway patrol as early as today as you mentioned. this after he repeatedly and officer have said this department is just stretched too thin beyond its means and all of this happening during a very violent august, the latest happening after 8:30 last night where someone stabbed a man in his 20s at least once in his chest. he died in one of the store aisles. the police have not made any arrests. the chief says while it's premature network with chp right now he's willing to start a discussion that other city leaders support. >> we need to do everything that we can to make our streets safer and if that means to accept an offer from the state to help bring in more resources, you know, in the form of california highway patrol, then i think that we are 0 bring gated to
accept it. >> reporter: this was an idea proposed by a former city council member. she sent an open letter to the chief saying she was extremely worried about safety in the city and the violence is beyond the control of the department's resources. to add to that the department is plagued by morale issues. it was about a week and a half ago that the police officers union had almost decided to vote no confidence against the police chief but decided against it last minute. live at the police department in san jose, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." more details now on the city's recent crime spike. san jose's homicide numbers this year stand at 31. that's three more compared to this time last year. so far 12 of this year's murders have been gang-related versus 14 last year. three have been the result of domestic violence versus four during last year. >> federal regulators want to

with a temperature of 55. 55 in livermore. 48 degrees, chilly cold enough for a jacket in novato. hour by hour forecast works like that. thick fog, pea soup fog at the coast until noon or 1:00 this afternoon. and that means temperatures are going to be limited with limited sunshine about 64 in san francisco, 65 in half moon bay. bay side, oakland about 74 degrees. 76 in fremont. temperatures start to really warm up as we head towards the end of the weekend into next week. so you want to enjoy this beautiful weather while it lasts approximately we'll show you when it changes when we get to that seven day forecast. how is that drive doing on a wednesday? >> not a whole lot of folks out there. i did show the bright lights and activity, 101 at university. here it is on the maps. northbound side still slowing. southbound side just cleared up as construction crews cleared. more exciting with both sides seeing construction and that
changed. northbound side should be clearing over the next bit of time. we'll watch this but no big deal for the peninsula and bayshore. over on the east bay, heading into 980. 480 slowing through the area but light flow of traffic should be all right. sign on the bay bridge. let's get a look at the toll plaza. light flow here. disabled vehicle report opened the incline but just cleared from the area and no slowing shows up just yet. that's good news. drive down the east shore freeway and north bay some fog but barely touching 101. no big surprises there. watch montero, half moon bay along the coast later on today. >> 5:08. seeing the world through the eyes of a college freshman. you might be surprised at what the class of 2016 considers normal? we'll explain. >> and i'm bob redell. taking you live on the water on the bay here for first day of

the company stock now worth less than half of what it was at its peak. scott mcgrew has one simple question. >> the "today" show has been discussing this. "l.a. times" has been discussing this idea. my question is name his replacement? zuckerberg probably doesn't take all this talk seriously considering he owns a majority of the voting shares in facebook, he really doesn't have to. studies by the way show companies run by their founders do much better in the long run than companies that replace their founders with professional ceos. now, a company which has replaced its ceo after just 11 months, hewlett packard will report profits after the closing bell today. actually it's unlikely to report profits, associated press predicting the largest loss in hp's history. hp largest maker of computers but that doesn't mean anything if people aren't buying computer and buying ipads instead.
