of the cars. schmoll started to fill at least one of the cabs -- two, possibly three people were hurt with minor injuries mostly smoke inhalation, taken to the hospital expected to be okay. service was interrupted for four, five hours, a five-station that shutdown. as to workers were late to work one to two hours, and many forced to take a bus to the 12th street station for the rest of the rid. >> have you spoken to your boss yet? >> no. >> reporter: are you looking forward to that conversation? >> i want her to just say, stay home today. >> reporter: but? >> she won't. >> missing out on work is you know, is not good. as you see all the people that are packed up missing out on money or food they just got to handle this man, so we can get back to our natural grind of things.
>> reporter: b.a.r.t. tells us the riders on the disabled train did kick out two windows. it's not clear if they tried an actual escape before the train moved it up for a safe exit. b.a.r.t. brings that up exiting a train on the tracks is dangerous given there's oncoming traffic and that electric third rail. they'll do a permanent ride tonight after service is shut down. incidentally this is happening where b.a.r.t. has been repairing interlocking tracks over the past few months. they finished the repairs last month. it's not clear if that is somehow related to what happened here this morning. bob rebale nbc bay area news. >> thank you, bob. another story we're following. in less than 11 hours, you'll ff want to avoid this the iconic golden gate bridge. the main route on and off the doy bridge will be shut down over ould the next several days. >> stephanie chuang is live near
the drive this morning, and this could add up to four hours for some drivers. >> that's right. according to a chp estimate. you can see here this is the approach that will be shut down completely where there's some traffic now. there will be none come 10:00 tonight. up there we saw the equipment. we saw crews working earlier 6 all she down. this is so crews can put the final touches on the presidio is it project. this is a fresh view this morning, a lot of is the work this weekend focused on taking out the temporary in a detour. they'll go over a short bridge then into two new tunnels, eliminating the twists and turns of the old doyle drive. project leaders say the new roadway will lead to more safety and better views. >> if you're coming from
lombard, you come over a bridge. that allowed the expanse of the chrissy marsh, and then you come into a new tunnel. there's four tunnels now. north and southbound traffic will be completely separated, safety shoulders and a wider lanes. >> check out this animation showing the new drive for for instance marine to northbound 101, a short break into one of two new tunnels. there's still another year's worth of work, by the way, mostly taking out the temporary due tour making the historic area beautiful for locals and visitors. starting tonight, you won't be able to access or exit the bridge from 101 in the marina. that leaves a bit of a bottleneck in both drivers for both directions. you can expect major delays there. marking lots at the bridge pavilion, will also le closed up on both ends. the closure starts at 10:00, though some of the closure will
start at 7:00 and everything should be back open at 5:00 monday morning, but the project spokesperson says people are still get used to this new drive come monday so expect delays for at least the next couple weeks. if. >> stephanie, thanks. this is sure to be a problem. for anyone looking to head to the city or the weekend. mike inouye you have some pix work-arounds? >> and also a note. anyone hoping to go through the golden gate bridge for the weekend, the parking lots are closed for this construction. that will mean different access maybe use a segway tour to get over there. we're going to suggest the ferry, and even though golden gate transit buses are working across the span they have to deal with the congestion to and from. you can take the richmond bridge over and across in towards the bay bridge. that would be very congested. the giants are also playing.
let me show you what is stef was talking about. here this section is cut off. anyone who usually travels through the marina can't access it. they have to come down over towards 19th which we no can tend to be a popular route. it's going to get very congested to and from that area. that will be a big problem. the fehrly system is an option. golden gate transit is working, but your best option enjoy the rest of the bay, because we have a wonderful area. guys, we sent it back to you. anci >> instead we do. a summer storm bringing in some wet weather to parts of the bay area. here's a live look at the other bridge. it looks like pea soup out there. >> for more let's bring in kari hall. you nailed it. >> scott and laura, we're ending the week with some unusual rain for this time of year especially for the north bay. we're seeing the rain that's been over the same area for the
past several hours. if ire in the north bay, you're looking up like when will this stuff stop in it will be a while. we're even seeing mist elsewhere across the bay. that mist has been just enough to bring in minor accumulation for spots look pour tolla, if this continues on you may best squeeze a tenth of an inch out of this but trace amounts of rain, and we're seeing the low clouds every, where temperatures hovering in the mid 60s. as we go into the day, there won't be much of a warmup so a very cool day with a mixture of sun and clouds for the east bay. we'll have a chance of more of those showers and possible lightning for the north bay, san francisco making it only up to 69d degrees, so after a day with low clouds mist and some soggy weather, we'll see all of this clears out in time for the weekend. i'll highlight a couple events, things can you do, more of that

tony? >> reporter: laura, scott, here is what we have learned in the past half hour we know that city county state and federal agentser here. this is a raid that started about 10:30, 10:45 this morning, it followed what the may yore said about two months ago in front of our cameras, that this facility has not been following city rules. then last week a judge constitutioned a cease and desist order to close this place down. they continued operating. about an hour ago law enforcement moved in they have shut down the facility. there's one gentleman? handcuffs in the san jose police car just on the other side here. they've been going in and out of the facility. here is what we know. san jose has long said for more than three, mower fonts that this facility was not licensed to operate as a distributor in the city. our investigation showed clear evidence that they were selling to people under 21 which is again the city's regulations, that they were operating beyond the hours the city allowed, that
they were operating without a permit, and that according to customers, they were selling marijuana in condensed form. that is not allowed. the bottom line here four violations, they've been fighting back and forth. our investigation showed what happened back in may, this morning about 10:30, law enforcement has moved in. we had e-mail communication with the facility yesterday. he said he was intending on appealing the judge's rulings that came down last week. so clearly this is probably headed back to the courts but for right now san jose organics on the east side of san jose a medical marijuana facility has been closed down by law enforcement. they continue pulling out evidence and we'll have more on this this morning throughout the day, including live at 5:00 or 6:00, but the latest a pot shop in san jose now closed down after the mayor called for law enforcement to move in in the shadow of a judge's ruling.
we will continue to follow the story all day. i'm tony kovaleski, nbc bay area news. >> yes, very much a state versus city law. i'm sure it will be in the course for quite some time. >> no doubt. after tom selleck, he's in hot water this morning. the "magnum p.i." start is accused of stealing water. witnesses say he drove truckloads of water back to his 60-acre 60-acre. he was asked to stop pumping the water. selleck has not commented. we are in the middle of summer. for a lot of families that means travel, youth baseball almost every weekend. as yenny beck shows us there's an 11-year-old pitcher in north carolina turns heads for a lot of reasons. >> reporter: that's the sound

>> when i was finally able to break free i spit out his ear on the floor and kept running. >> well the victim is now recovers. you saw the injuries. let's talk about something nicer. >> let's do. >> like the weather. rain or shine, kari has the forecast. >> scott and laura, we start out with clouds all across the bay, but some of us are getting enough light rain to give us some accumulation something that's kind of unusual this time of year right? now we're looking at temperatures in the mid 60s. as we go through the rest of the day, expect highs to reach into the lower 70s, very cool. you probably are thinking is this really july? only 73 degrees for the lie in the north bay. there may be some peeks of sunshine today, but don't expect a lot of that until the weekend. now as we go into the day, we
are tracking some rain moving across the north bay. this is what i have been keen my eye on. it hasn't been bringing much accumulation maybe about 0.05 but it is something. we say see more of that across parts of the north bay. the low clouds will stick around, maybe you'll have to turn on the windshield wipers. into the evening we see more clouds and -- low clouds and moving into san francisco. show where visibility will be the lower and that stayed with us, with a lot of huity in the area now 10 to 15 miles an hour, kind of stayed there, keeping us from being able to get a wind strong enough to mix out some of these clouds.
there may even be a bit of that wet weather, and future cast shows with the radar and the satellite picture could look like. especially for areas like point reyes, and then down the coast over towards maybe around tiberon. could make it into the peninsula. we're hoping that a chance of bringing that accumulating rain will be very slight. it's moving right overhead. as that moves to the east we'll be drying out to more seasonable weather. we're talking about some '80s, and the 10s along the coastal areas, and we've warmed temperatures up to another five or ten degrees over the next few days after the morning clouds clear out. quite a few events are going on
this weekend. like the jack-of-all-trades market happening on saturday in oakland, our temperatures will be topping out in the lower 70s, a lot of sunshine. some of the others microclimates, expect more of this beautiful weather, and i mean that by the comfortable temperatures. it's going to be slightly cooler than average in many spots, like the tri-valley only reaching into the mid 80s, with a mixture of sun and clouds. looking like a good weekend headed this way, just hoping for more of that rain. scott and laura? >> squeeze anything out we can. up next at 11:00, the plan to keep the bay bridge lights up and running for a very long time.
the bay bridge should keep on twinkling well on into the next decade. the bay area toll authority approved the ten-year $2 million contract to keep the popular art installation running. it's with phillips lighting who will maintain the lights once they return next year. they've been off since march. 25,000 lights were first installed in 2013 as part of the bay bridge's 75th anniversary celebration. they may be the leaders of tomorrow in the automobile industry. they're about to unveil a one of a kind car. >> each year students take part of a similar car project. >> tomorrow the team's new vehicle will be unveiled. it would take part in the race this october in the bridgestony world challenge, a race across the australian outback that includes dozens of solar cars made by teams from 25 countries. be prepared to get
