chp, san jose, santa claire county deputies busted three different sideshows in three intersections. the saving grace, all of this happened after midnight so most families and children out for halloween were long gone. this happened at gish road and interstate 80. on kertner avenue, there was a crash. san jose police caught up with a suspected sideshow driver who was trying to flee. that driver crashed but no one was hurt. in oakland on highway 101, several people were injured trying to get away from chp officers. that's just one person who is now in custody. chp took one person into custody and at least two people are in custody of the san jose police and headed to jail. multiple vehicles are now in the
impound lot and they'll be there for 30 days. sideshows happen in communities all around the bay area. you might remember a few weeks ago we showed these large disks contra costa county is going to use to make intersections more narrow and less appealing for drivers looking for space to do those stunts. if sideshows pop up and dissipate so quickly, you might wonder how it is officers were able to track these folks down. a lot of that help came from the air. we'll talk about that more at 5:30. we'll let you know that. the good news is they kept it off the roadways until really late at night and also kept those freeways wide open so none of the stunts planned for the freeways happened on the freeways. we'll tell you more about that on twitter and coming up at 5:30. kris sanchez, "today in the bay." now to the loss of a bay area legend. this morning the memorial growing at his feet, statue of

you watch them grow old, yeah. >> reporter: mccovey, the legend, praised by legends. >> i used to sit in section 9, family section at candlestick. the right field wall was open to the parking lot. we would line up in the aisle and we knew he would hit a home run and we would all race to the parking lot. >> reporter: mccovey was a giant for most of his career and spent another two decades in the organization as an adviser. the giants have awarded the willie mac award. >> willie had -- sort of had it all. he had this warmth, this love for the franchise, love for the teammates and his love for the community. >> reporter: the city of san francisco paying tribute to the icon by turning other icons orange. the scoreboard at at&t showing his long retired number, 44. back at mccovey cove, the realization that time waits for no one, not even willie mccovey. >> my dad passed away a few

sensors pick up on that slowing. since this has been reduced to one lane open, the cars are barely crawling by. expect heavy delays through that area. this is a live look right now at the bay bridge. you can see bumper-to-bumper traffic there. we can't necessarily make out the pinpoint location. if you're driving along the westbound lanes, this is not being affected at all. we see a smooth commute from there. westbound to the bay bridge you're looking at eight minutes. westbound on 92 to san mateo bridge, 13 minutes. as far as the rest of the bay area, i'm keeping a close eye on that and everything seems to be going great. but that sig alert can definitely be a major problem if that's part of your commute. head out now. i'll keep you updated as well. let's take a look at the weather with kari hall. >> we're starting out with clear
