one suspect is in custody, another one is dead. the car chase began in contra costa county just after midnight last night. now, officials have not yet said what started it. but they are currently investigating. speeds broke about 100 miles an hour and when the pursuit came here to the intersection, the suspects basically drove into and under the semi. the truck didn't stop immediately and dragged the car out of the intersection and right now again one suspect is dead, another in custody. now, back out here live, i can tell you that a tow truck just pulled up so hopefully they will be in the process of clearing the scene. it will be hours yet before this intersection is back open. behind me you can see how backed up traffic is. so as jaclyn said, avoid this intersection at all costs if you can help it because it is certainly going to impact your morning commute. reporting live from richmond, emily turner, kpix 5. a united airlines flight leaving for the bay area for singapore is forced to turn around and make an emergency

so. >> reporter: no injuries rethe passengers or the crew. united had staffers here checking out the plane for damage because these birds hit both the nose of the plane and the windows as well asthe wings. so they are making sure that this plane is going to be safe to fly. live at sfo, anne makevoc, kpix 5. we are following breaking news out of southern california. this is a live look near hawthorne where a tanker is on fire. this is on the 105 freeway. we are told at least two tankers are involved. only one is on fire. and at this time, emergency crews are on the scene. it's not yet clear if there are any injuries. but this is expected to cause a major traffic backup this morning. right now, hurricane lane is getting close to the hawaiian islands. kpix 5's neda iranpour is tracking the storm and its path. >> right now, it is a category 3 hurricane so definitely noticing very strong wind gusts still at this hourn't t a

on the big island nearly two feet of rain had fallen in just 24 hours. and the slow-moving storm was still far offshore. rivers and lakes were inundated and overflowed. one resident hoped this would be the worst of it. >> i have seen it get pretty raging before. i don't feel like, um --i still feel like we're going to be blessed and, like, we're going to be okay. >> reporter: but as lane approached the island, authorities said the coming deluge had the potential to be catastrophic. >> they are extremely concerned about the potentials for inland flooding, landslides occurring and damage to the transportation communications infrastructure. >> reporter: once a category 5 monster, it's already been downgraded and is expected to further weaken in the days to come although it will still pack hurricane strength winds. it's also not expected to strike the island directly. unlike people on the mainland, most hawaiians have no choice but to stay where they are and ride it out. laura podesta,cbs news, new york. airlines are cancerling

cliff house camera towards ocean beach. this is where all the morning marine layer comes from, of course, from the coastline and it's being pushed really far inland this morning. very similar to yesterday's conditions. so we are starting off cloudy then hazy skies to end our day. so it's going to be another smoky one out there. cooler than average temperatures though. at least that heat and haze that combination definitely makes for uncomfortable conditions. we won't have that today. satellite-radar showing we do have that very extensive cloud coverage all across northern california. you see how it got pushed beyond san francisco and fairfield and into the central valley today. and, yes, it's hovering over the coast. the coast may not get a break from the clouds at all. an onshore breeze will keep us cool this afternoon. west winds at sfo at 5. 8 in downtown san francisco. breezier in fairfield and through the delta. that's a current look at your conditions. back to you. in contra costa county a fatal accident shut down a major intersection. kpix 5's emily turner joins us
live from richmond to whatup tos eporter: yeaichelle. is oroughfarerich avenue. it's shut down now likely to be shut down through the entirety of the morning commute. and i'm going to move out of the way so you can see why. clearly, intense investigation going on right there. we just learned that the accident is the result of a car chase that started in rodeo when suspects, two suspects in that black car, threw a gun out of the car. deputies saw it, tried to pull them over. that's when the suspects fled. the suspects refused to stop instead leading deputies on a car chase. they came to the deadly end that you saw when the car ran into an essentially wedged under the semi. the investigators are on scene. we have learned one suspect is in custody amazingly able to walk away. another suspect is dead. we're told that the suspect who is in custody told officers he ducked and that's why he survived. speeds broke 100 miles an
hour. they drove under the semi after running a red light. the truck didn't stop immediately dragging the car out of the intersection. again, one suspect dead, another one amazingly able to walk away. use 580 to connect with the richmond/san rafael bridge. starting to see those delays building. so anyone who is traveling or trying to get over there, you will not be able to use richmond parkway this morning or at least that stretch. so continue on i-80 and then you can exit at hilltop and then you can take hilltop right over to richmond parkway and then get back over to 580. give yourself some extra time at there was definitely a backup on the surface streets. speeds under 10 miles per hour a lot of folks just turning around and heading back over
to i-80. that's going to starting to see some slowdowns as you head out of hercules down into richmond. it's right around 47 miles an hour. so a little sluggish. no friday like conditions there. it's not causing delays for folks into san francisco this morning. a united airlines flight heading to singapore turned around and made an emergency landing at sfo a few hours ago. kpix 5's anne makovec reports from the airport. passengers are getting ready to board some new flights later. >> reporter: that jet packed aroundidnight here from sfo. and they had to turn around and come back with all these people but they should be
going to singapore. here's a flight path the united airlines flight took after that bird strike circling the coast dumping fuel and heading back to sfo so it landed safely at around 1:30 this morning. 1 hour and 20 minutes. the passengers were let out of the plane and rescheduled on flights leaving this morning. >> apparently a flock of births hit the nose of the plane. they mentioned the engines could be involved one or both. >> reporter: no injuries reported from either the passengers nor the flight crew. united staffers came and checked out the plane right when it got back. they haven't given us word yet
on exactly how much damage was done. anne makovec, kpix 5. today hurricane lane is going to move close to or over parts of hawaii's other main islands. and for more on the powerful storm, let's check in with neda. >> we are tracking it closely. it's already done a lot of damage caused a lot of flooding across hawaii. it's about 155 miles southwest of kailua kona. and this is what's going to happen. it's going to start to downgrade as it gets closer to the island. you see that cone of concern there. it does place it possibly on some of the islands there where maui is, a category 1 this afternoon or tomorrow morning. so of course we are going to watch this very closely. look at the spaghetti plots. some of it has the storm moving over oahu and some have
it moving south of the hawaiian islands which we hope for. widespread damage is occurring because it's such a massive storm. the heavy wind and rain have caused problems already. mudslides and flooding a continued possibility. so far 31 inches of rain on the big island at some of the weather stations there and wind gusts at 67 miles per hour. because of hurricane lane, all hawaiian islands are now under a state of emergency. the storm has already caused power outages and flooding and landslides. up to 20 inches of rain fell on parts of the big island in just a 24-hour period. and more rain continues to fall. >> hurricane lane is still a dangerous and powerful storm. and so we are asking all of our residents statewide to pay attention. listen to the updates and the forecast. >> landing slides blocked some roads. hawaii and other airlines canceled flights to and from
hawaii. >> united airlines won't be flying in or out of maui or honolulu today. united added two flights from honolulu to the san francisco airport yesterday to help people get out. all major carriers are waiving rebooking fees for hawaii flights. the storm is having an impact on ocean traffic to hawaii. one cargo ship left the port of oakland currently parked in the pacific waiting for the storm to pass. stay with us for updates as hurricane lane hits the islands and track the storm on our website, cbssf.com. attorney general jeff sessions's time on the job could be limited if a recent interview by president trump is any indication. cbs news' laura podesta has the responses from sessions and republican lawmakers. reporter: attorney general jeff sessions is firing back against the president saying in a statement, i took control of the department of justice the day i was sworn in. and, the doj will not be improperly influenced by political considerations. his words come in response to this interview on fox news. >> jeff sessions, never took control of the justice department and, um, it's a
sort of an incredible thing. >> reporter: president trump said his loyalty to sessions fell off shortly after sessions took the job and announced he was stepping away from the russia investigation. >> he took the job and then he said, i'm going to recuse myself. i said, what kind of a man is this? >> reporter: some republican lawmakers like senator lindsey graham says trump's words makes it clear sessions won't be on the job much longer. >> after the election, i think there will be some serious discussions about a new attorney general. >> reporter: which other republicans say is not a good idea. >> i think it would be a mistake. and i don't think it would be good for the country. >> reporter: other lawmakers added that if sessions goes, it could pave the way for a domino effect of firings undermining the credibility of the u.s. justice system. laura podesta, cbs news, new york. >> democrats are calling for a delay easuemcourt nee l

>> reporter: lyft is going to offer half price rides to polling stations on election day. lyft will distribute promo codes to riders through a partnership with groups like vote.org. and starbucks is going to pay some workers to go work somewhere else. a new pilot program at the coffee chain allows employees to spend half their time at a local nonprofit. they will work only 20 hours a week at starbucks, but will be paid for all 40 hours. 36 employees are now in the six-month program. and that's your "cbsmoneywatch" report the for more, go to cbsmoneywatch.com. wendy gillette, at the new york stock exchange. let's check traffic. you're taking a look at the bay bridge. we are seeing something we don't normally see. >> take a look at the bay bridge. there's no backup.
westbound 80 at the berkeley curve, that's holding people up with a crash. you can see the flashlights. emergency crews are trying to clear it out. two-car crash. expect slowdowns for your westbound 80 ride. 22 minutes from 4 out of hercules to the maze. still tracking slowdowns through richmond all due to a crash that occurred on the surface streets. richmond parkway at san pablo avenue that remains shut down. so anyone that's trying to get over to the richmond/san rafael bridge and heading off of 80 taking richmond parkway will have to turn around at that point. so stay on i-80. you can always take that down to hilltop. and then hilltop connects with richmond parkway and then head over to the richmond/san rafael bridge. we are definitely seeing the crowds develop. our drive times remain in the green but you can see a little bit of a backup over at the toll plaza there. golden gate bridge, checking in problem-free in both
directions. no delays as you are heading into san francisco. crowded westbound from hayward to foster city. 16 minutes. 580, 880, and 37, all in the yellow. so no signs of red on our "bay area majors" but definitely not "friday light" conditions. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you. thank you. good morning. a few delays at sfo as well this morning all because of this. the low cloud ceiling that we see that we often definitely see impacts flights coming into town. here's a look at the temperatures. 57 degrees in san francisco. livermore at 58. and concord 61 degrees. your afternoon conditions are going to be pretty cool this afternoon. but we are noticing air quality not so good. so right now, it is unhealthy in fremont and san jose. unhealthy for sensitive groups where you see orange in pacifica, redwood city. moderate in yellow. air quality today moderate to
unhealthy. a "spare the air" alert is issued. we saw haze in the sky yesterday. it looked like fog but it was pollution. here's where it's all coming from. all these fires burning in the pacific northwest and that's the mendocino this smoke got se over the pacific ocean. then we saw a shift in the wind direction. that's what happened yesterday. so we got the onshore breeze and that basically sent the smoke from the ocean right into the bay area putting our air quality the worst in the state of california yesterday. that's what we noticed particulate matter more than 150 which of course prompt that "spare the air" alert. we are going to get the onshore breeze today leading to more smoke in the skies. temperatures also cooling today because of that breeze, as well. so even inland communities are going to be impacted by it. this is what you'll see. below average san francisco 69 is normal. 63 will be our afternoon high today. san jose 77. puts you about 5 degrees below normal. so a lot locations in the 70s and 80s.
it was 90s for many of you earlier. not this week or next week. 80 in concord, 81 livermore, 71 in fremont. 73 in redwood city. temperatures in the north bay mid- to upper 70s. it's going to happen next week. this low will dip south. as that drops, our temperatures will also drop. so on saturday you will see a slight rise in temperatures and then by sunday theyannext e talking even cooler than today. here's a look at your game forecast. the raiders playing the packers. hazy and cool in oakland 63 at 7:30 game time and then temperatures for the giants game, yeah, that's happening today and this weekend, first pitch 7:15 and, yes, breezy and cool in san francisco. 62 degrees. that seven-day forecast now showing a little rise in temperatures on saturday then that dip for next week. but 60s and 70s for the bay area, certainly below average. that's where we'll stay next week. that's your forecast. it is 6:48. time now for a look at what's coming up later on "cbs this morning." john dickerson joins us from
new york city. john, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, kenny. happy friday to you. ahead on "cbs this morning," we'll begin with the eye- opener your world in 90 seconds. plus we are on hawaii's big island where the rain came from hurricane lane. more than a foot and a half fell and flooding is expected to get worse. >> also, why the government says a family is it blame for injuries caused by a cyanide trap even though a federal worker placed that trap near the family's home by mistake. and we're there to watch an undercover raid as federal agents bust a marijuana operation in a national forest in california. how the illegal crop created a toxic waste dump. that and more at 7:00. >> thank you. the firefighters battling the mendocino complex fires up north set up a new command post. about 2500 personnel from cal fire are moving into the fairgrounds in orland. there's plenty of space to bring in tents, food and the
other necessities. so far, the fires have burned more than 415,000 acres in mendocino, colusa, glen and lake county. containment is at 74%. >> just because we have the base here, that people in orland don't need to be worried that the fire is coming here. it's just we need a large location to set up the base. >> crews expect to have the mendocino complex fire contained a week from tomorrow. happening today, state lawmakers will be asking some tough questions to verizon about why it slowed down data speed for bay area firefighters during an emergency. santa clara county fire chief says his crews fighting the mendocino complex fire had their internet speeds slowed down. when the department told them about it, the carrier said to upgrade to a more expensive data plan. verizon called it a customer support mistake. santa clara county fire and verizon representatives have been invited to speak at today's assembly committee hearing. governor brown is proposing changes that would make logging rules more lenient in an effort to reduce
wildfire risk. it comes as california deals with one of the worst fire seasons in recent memory. the governor's plan would let landowners cut larger trees and build temporary roads without getting permits. the idea is to thin out some of the state's forests. 6:51. emergency landing at sfo this morning. what investigators say happened. >> reporter: and a major intersection in the east bay shut down, traffic snarled. more coming up. maybe you could save energy by weaving your own shoes... out of flax. or simply adjust your thermostat. do your thing, with energy upgrade california.
