antonio. use 280 as an alternate and try el camino as well. some brake lights through the altamont pass. the east shore freeway started to get busy as well. let's check in with anne makovec. there was a dui arrest that happened before 2 a.m . this guy left his zipcar in the middle of the lanes and that's what the car looks like luckily, no one was inside. they would have been badly badly injured. nobody was injured in this crash. it made a huge mess. gravel all over both the northbound and southbound lanes and that's why they were both shut down for almost 4 hours early this morning. the car was left in the middle of the lanes and, two work trucks came up behind it. they all mixed it up and, one of the trucks spilled its load of gravel all over the lanes. a 25-year-old man was arrested for dui for leaving the car in
the middle of the lanes. we will keep you posted all morning and when those lanes reopened. in the meantime, another look at your morning commute from jackie.>> if you follow muni on twitter you may have seen the one car trains but it is a bit misleading. here's what they treated. heads up due to equipment availability, muni metro service will see an increase in one car trains to rapid we expect minimal impact on capacity . more one car trains means less two car trains which means less wiggle room for passengers. they told the chronicle that they learned about a problem with the pins yesterday and those pins keep the trains coupled together. they only last about three months before becoming unreliable so to ensure passenger safety, their running trains with older pins as singles. the manufacturer is rushing out a stack of fresh pins at its expense. they told the chronicle also that the manufacturer will redesign and reengineer the pins so muni doesn't
constantly face this problem. it is not the first time with this problem, a shear pins, broke off in april and muni said it was bringing in an independent contractor to figure it out. that was nearly eight months ago so we hope to hear from some commuters about this pesky problem. the east bay, angry parents use the holiday classic to shut down oakland school board meeting.>> the kids the they deserve the very best and this is not okay hey. >> they read a poem in the style of how the grinch stole christmas and they sing modified christmas carols with lyrics about budget cuts. the disruptions have been happening for months and got ugly when police clash with protesters at a meeting in october. >> someone who believes that a 6.5 million our police forces more important than keeping schools open, should never be

or for impeachment. he is accused of two high crimes and misdemeanors, article one is abuse of power and article 2 is section of congress for democrats a president donald trump abused the power of his office by pressuring ukraine to investigate his political rivals, the bidens, and then obstructed congress by stonewalling the impeachment inquiry. republicans maintain president donald trump did nothing wrong and democrats are out to get him.>> they don't like the president or his supporters and they dislike us so much they're willing to weapon as a government. >> i am a black man representing georgia, armed when jim crow was alive and well. to me, the idea that elections can be undermined is not theoretical. remake the committee today will pass both articles on partyline votes. that's with the final 43 for the full house next week. although we are expecting to know how the vote will go
today, the house judiciary committee will vote on each article of impeachment separately, and come republicans will again have that final chance to make their arguments to add amendments. this judiciary committee is led by democrats. the majority is democrats, so, we are assuming the democrats will win the vote but again, it is something to watch today.>> we've heard so much from both sides of the aisle so go over how both parties are backing up their arguments.>> reporter: today, republicans will continue to make the claim that president did nothing wrong and the democrats don't have enough evidence saying that overhearing the plan of a possible quid pro quo isn't acting on it. they're hammering him there is no evidence which means democrats are really going to be trying to hone in on the articles of impeachment and focus on the evidence they claim they have . for example, an obstruction of congress they see there's plenty of proof saying that they've refused to participate in the impeachment inquiry. they're hammering that through the day through this final vote.>> all right thank you.
