tv Today in the Bay NBC September 2, 2015 6:00am-7:01am PDT
breezy wind and the north bay, topping out at 83. i'll talk more about what to expect today and heading into the holiday weekend coming up. let's see how the roads are moving with mike. >> surprise! the bay bridge toll plaza back up. it's not a surprise, metering lights on as well. toward the map, we'll show you, a smooth drive on the approach coming off of the east shore freeway. maze slows as you're approaching for 580 and 24. looking towards south 880, build towards hayward and build for pleasanton and sunol, build, typical pattern. south bay, northbound route starting to sort themselves out for the commute. 101 slows at 680 and 87 slows coming into downtown. back to you. thank you, mike. 6:00. was it excessive force. three deputies searched with search warrants in connection of a death of an inmate. >> damian trujillo first broke this story last week. sources say he had injuries
consistent with a physical beating. >> reporter: yeah. we should clarify they're not sheriff deputies, jail guards, if you will, under investigation. this has turned into a criminal investigation here at main jail according to our sources. we obtained a court document yesterday and lists an inmate named michael tyree. sources tell us tyree was badly beaten in his jail cell. several sources tell our investigative unit tyree had lacerations to his liver and spleen. the coroner yet to release the autopsy report. as we reported on friday, the sheriff puts three correctional deputies on administrative leave after the incident. tyree was waiting to be transferred to a bed at momentum crisis residential treatment center. he had earlier appeared before a mental health court judge but sources tell us some argument ensued inside his jail cell after midnight. for the last four days, sheriff's office has only said guards found tyree unresponsive
in that cell. >> deputies were going around doing welfare checks as normal, noticed a person was not responding to them knocking on the door. they rendered aid. fire and paramedics were called. >> reporter: and those paramedics are ones who declared tyree dead in his jail cell. our investigate inunit contacted tyree's sister out of state. the sister was not ready to speak public about what happened to her brother. one of the deputies has complaints against him for excessive use of force. damian trujillo, "today in the bay." >> thank you. of course we'll stay on top of this developing story throughout the morning. for more coverage, head to our website nbc bay.com or download our free nbc bay area app. all eyes on wall street this morning, after the dow finished trading yesterday down almost 500 points. but scott mcgrew, things could
rebound in 30 minutes. >> good morning. a bit of good news about american productivity and that does push the futures higher. you mentioned yesterday the dow falling almost 500 points, 469. now the best measure of the market isn't the dow, it the s&p 500. but that was lousy, too, down 3%. nasdaq down 3%. big important jobs number on friday. september always terrible, sam and laura, for stocks but this is the worst start in 13 years. we're having a rough day of it. >> no kidding. thanks a lot. 6:03. new this morning, the west oakland b.a.r.t. station up and running at this hour. it was closed for more than three hours overnight after a man reportedly shot himself while trying to get a gun out of his waistband during confrontation with officers. video taken by a witness showing the suspect right after he apparently shot himself on accident. investigators say he was smoking on the platform, which is against the law. b.a.r.t. officers approached him
and he reportedly threatened to jump on the tracks, then reached for a gun in his waistband the officers tased him. they say while he was struggling to get the gun out he accidentally shot himself into the stomach. he's in critical condition. >> a hot button issue nationally and that includes here in the bay area. trains carrying thousands of gallons of highly flammable crude oil moving right past schools. the question, is it safe? "today in the bay's" chuck coppola live in emeryville for us. new report details potential dangers. >> reporter: that's right. good morning, sam. right now about 50,000 school children attend classes in the bay area within a mile of oil trains rolling past their schools. the center for biological diversity in oakland says that's too many, too close. that distance, one mile, is within the evacuation zone in a number of oil train explosions, such as one in west virginia two years ago. a number of schoolchildren close to oil trains in the bay area
could reach 200,000 under a proposed oil train route. there's concern not only proximity but the type of oil that may be transported. >> one is from north dakota which has proven to be one of the most volatile types of crude, highly explosive and that's in northern california in the bay area, that's been the primary type of crude that we've seen. >> reporter: association of american railroads counters saying, it's spending $30 billion on what it calls top to bottom operational reviews, implementing lower speeds, increasing track inspections and use of track-side safety technology and stepping up outreach training for first responders in communities. this issue is far from resolved. live in emeryville, chuck coppola "today in the bay." >> thank you. 6:05. explosive, new video raising even more questions about delayed construction at a south bay hospital.
it was quick there, but there was a man working on a steam pipe the moment that pipe explodes. now santa clara county says this video is another reason why it wants to fire turner construction from the project at valley medical center. "today in the bay's" joins us now. this is the latest twist in the story. >> just as the time ticks for that man to get out of that steam pipe and he does survive, by the way, the clock is ticking on turner construction's contract with the county. that part of the story we broke earlier this week but now this video is fueling the debate. >> you described that video which we see santa clara county says the pops and cracks in the pop line while the worker was inside are not normal. the loud explosion comes after steam erupts through the underground vault. the worker, again, did survive
the incident which happened last year but the county may fire turner construction over safety concerns and project delay. >> in this case, there was an instruction to the employees that said, you might hear popping and cracking sounds and that's normal. >> on monday turner construction toured the site to balk about the delays. a delay later provided payroll documents indicating that the incident wasn't serious enough to keep that worker off the job. turner contends the county released the video now, a year later, as a publicity stunt to distract from its own mishandling of the project. turner has until friday to convince the county not to fire it from that $300 million hospital project. we are still combing through the osha website to see if it investigated this incident and see if the company was punished in any way because of it.
>> failed our sister, at this point. nobody has taken responsibility, accountable, and nothing has changed. >> sadness turns to anger for the family of kate steinle. two months ago the 32-year-old was shot and killed on pier 14. an undocumented immigrant is the prime suspect. yesterday steinle's family filed a claim against the san francisco sheriff, federal immigration officials and bureau of land management. they say each agency is responsible for steinle's death beginning with the release of the suspect. >> we're here for every citizen in this country, every citizen that comes to san francisco, and to brad's point if you think this can't happen to you, think again. >> it's steinle's family shining a light on a problem facing police agencies,
department-issued guns stolen. the gun used to kill kate steinle stolen from a member of law enforcement. family's attorney says bureau of land management ranger broke the rules when he left his loaded gun in a backpack in plain sight in his car before it was taken. that theft one of three incidents this summer when a local law enforcement officer's gun was stolenen someone took a hayward's gun from oakland and chief of police from berkeley had her gun stolen in richmond. the family's father says this is a dangerous trend. >> no protocol. do they not care or are we out of control here? i think it's a little bit of everything. >> experts saying now is the time for departments to review storage policy and strengthen them. 6:09. time to review our forecast for the day. looks luke a nice one ahead. check that microclimate forecast with meteorologist kari hall. >> good morning. the clouds are back, especially along the coast and that will keep our temperatures down today, also getting a push of
cooler air to knock things down a few more degrees interest yesterday. and san jose expect a high of 79 degrees. also in san mateo and at the marina 65. 74. napa 74. san ramon at 80 today. comfortable today and the next few days. but starting to heat up as we head into the holiday weekend. i'll show you those numbers coming up in a few minutes. let's see how the commute is moving with mike. >> following a report of a chicken running around in lane 3 at bay bridge toll plaza. this is lane 3. i don't see any problem here. from the emeryville camera, none as well traffic is moving predictably at the toll plaza. the chicken probably crossed the road, thought the other lane was moving faster. the maze no problem. east shore freeway a build through berkeley. pretty light right now around the bay. slowing for highway 4 into concord out of the antioch area. no problems towards the dublin

expanded into class action. >> that means the suit is open to many more drivers. scott mcgrew, a big blow to the economy. >> the 1099 workers, the suit could give them courage to go forward with their own. people with food delivery services, parking apps, other ride-saring apps, but lyft faces its own suit. the judge ruled the lawsuit against uber can be expanded. now the big question here, and the one that still needs to be decided by a jury, is whether uber drivers are contract workers or are they employees. in his decision, chen said the class will be open to all uber black, uber x, ush suv drivers who have driven for uber in the state of california. though judge chen made one exception, that is people who signed up in a later contract agreed to arbitration. at this point, it's not clear
how many people qualify for this lawsuit. the plaintiffs say it's like 110,000. uber says it's a fraction of that. this case has a lot of similarities to a recent case where some fedex drivers said they were not contract workers. they should be considered employees and they won. the judge in that case is the same judge in this case. turning to the markets, the dow had its worst start in september since 2002. not a good measure of the market. s&p 500 down 3%. big jobs number friday. preview of the number, not encouraging. we'll have the latest for you as the markets open. >> need good news when it comes to the markets. >> we do. that was a rough, rough tuesday. >> thanks a lot. 6:17. 70 years later still understandable emotional wounds april bay area man took a trip

>> a nice way to move on. >> the pearl harbor in hawaii, both sides meeting as people, not as sides of the war. >> exactly. many years have passed. >> especially now, given how much tension is in the world. nice to see something like that. no tension as far as forecast. >> smooth one. >> comfortable. nice cool breeze throughout the afternoon. we do start with morning clouds. something we haven't seen much of the past couple of days. live look at bay bridge. you can see that as we get started this morning, not a lot going on weather-wise. we'll start to see clouds getting lower and lower near the bay. over the next couple of hours with our temperatures in the upper 50s to lower 60s. today's highs will be a little bit cooler than yesterday. it is going to be nice. san francisco, 70 degrees, 74 in the east bay. and the tri-valley coming down from those upper 80s to 85 today and the north bay expecting a high of 83 degrees. going hour by hour, we see that

"today in the bay's" chuck coppola live in emeryville. a new report out details potential dangers. >> reporter: that's right. good morning. center for biological diversity in oakland mapped out the number of california schools within a mile of oil train routes. here's what it's about, statewide more than 1 million
students within a mile of oil trains rolling past. here in the bay area, it's 50,000 schoolchildren. but a proposed oil train route to transport oil to san luis obispo would raise that number to 200,000 schoolchildren. >> i found the number of children that go to school within one mile of a current oil train route staggering. >> reporter: it is aware of concerns and spending $30 billion on top to bottom operational reviews, implementing lower speeds, increasing track inspection and use of track-side safety technology and stepping up outreach and training for first responders in communities. this, to continue to transport by rail but take measures to variety disaster. reporting live in emeryville, chuck coppola, "today in the bay." >> thank you very much. it is explosive, new video and raising even more questions about delayed construction at a south bay hospital.
>> that right there was a man working on a steam pipe. moment that that pipe explodes. now santa clara county says the video is another reason why it wants to fire turner construction from the project valley medical center. "today in the bay's" kris sanchez joining us now an incident happened a year ago. why are we only seeing video now. >> that's the big question this morning. is that explosion video proof of performance or is it a publicity stunt? the story of santa clara county's threat to fire turner construction from the $300 million valley medical center hospital job is one we broke earlier this week. but now this video is fueling the fire. you saw that worker was halfway out of the steam pipe as it explodes. he did survive that incident. but turner construction's contract with county may not. in addition to construction
delays the county claims the company's safety record is questionable. >> in this case, there was an instruction to the employees that said, you might hear popping and cracking sounds and that's normal. >> on monday turner construction told nbc bay area the delays of that project are the county's own fault. a day later in response to the explosion video, turner provided documents to us indicating it took responsibility at the time and that they also provided payroll documents, indicating that the incident wasn't serious enough to keep that worker off the job. in fact, in that video you see him get up and walk away. turner contends the county's only releasing the video now, a year later to distract from mishandling of the project. the county gave turner construction until friday to convince the county not to fire it from the $300 million hospital project. so the clock is running. but this is certainly the kind of incident that cal osha would investigate eight construction
site. we've been poring through the website and online records. we see no violation related to the hospital site. we're wondering now if it was a subcontractor or why osha wasn't called if they weren't called. we'll get to the bottom of that today. >> very interesting. >> midway through a holiday week, which means labor day is around the corner. >> mike was telling us people take off early, maybe to get a jump on what is not enough of a three-day weekend. live look outside golden gate, people may be heading into the city by the bay. check the forecast. meteorologist kari hall. >> you'll have the iconic low clouds to get shots this morning. we are seeing clouds roll away from the hills in sunol and a beautiful sunrise. temperatures are in the lower 60s out the door and it will be a much more comfortable day. we've had nice weather recently. but temperatures coming down a few more glees. gilroy, 79s also san mateo.

developing story from the midwest. nearly 24 hours later, still no sign of three men accused of killing a police officer in illinois. the lieutenant was killed yesterday morning during a foot chase, an hour north of chicago. the officer was a 32-year veteran of law enforcement, husband and father of four. it is 5:44. -- 6:44 i should say. only one known survivor left of the great san francisco earthquake following the death of a woman in pebble beach. next april it will be 110 years
since the great quake. family members say 113-year-old ruth newman died at the end of july, she was 5 when the quake struck. she would tell relatives about remembering running from her home during the shaking. the only known living survivor is a man who was 3 months old at time of the quake. he lives in a retirement home in marin county. we know how a woman was able to survive nine days by herself lost in the sierra. in a letter written from her hospital bed, she says she was trying to make it back to her group at base camp before dark one night when she fell off of a cliff, breaking her leg. she then spent the next two days crawling to a stream for drinking water. she says she did not eat the entire time. on the eighth day she could see the search helicopters and hear rescuers calling her name but couldn't area hear her yell
back. saturday she was recued. kentucky county clerk says her faith is more important than the letter of the law and she's refusing to bridge on granting marriage licenses to same-sex couples. >> we are not issuing marriage licenses. >> based on what? >> i ask you all -- >> why? >> because i'm not. >> why. >> whose authority? >> under god's authority. >> that's what's happened yesterday in a heated exchange between the clerk kim davis and a gay couple. her first day back to work after the u.s. supreme court order her to issue marriage licenses to all couples. davis is facing fines and may receive jail time for defying the court order. getting her removed would be difficult because she's an elected official and must be impeached. she and her deputies skcheduled to appear in court tomorrow. look for a new face on stage
in california. carly fiorina has successfully lobbied cnn to include her. cnn changed the rules after weeks of complaints that presidential polls before the last debate were being weighed far too heavily. fiorina got a bump after that debate. now she's going head-to-head with the top ten, including jeb bush, who is attacking donald trump as too liberal on abortion and health care. >> this is not a guy who is a conservative and using his own words, not a mischaracterization, they came out of his own mouth. >> and on the democratic side, as we await whether or not vice president biden decides if he's going run to he'll be in florida discussing the iran deal with jewish leaders. >> a check of the money this morning. >> scott mcgrew, yesterday you said whatever you do, don't look at your 401(k). can we peek? >> yeah, go ahead and peek. it the better day today but keep in mind, we have not made up the losses from yesterday. here's the open on the nasdaq. the dow industrials are up about
