fine now. much of the past 980 that george was talking about you can see all lanes were reopened. they were shut down for about four and a half hours because of a horrific accidents that involved two cars. one of them was actually traveling northbound on 883 here's video we want to show you print this happen surely before 1:00 in the morning. a bmw was going north of mount st. see if the investigators tell me the driver was going in excess of 100 mi. per hour. loses control of the bmw clips the back of a semi truck, flies over the center median and then slams head on into the driver of a honda crb who was traveling southbound. the force was so horrific and so hard that it actually puts the both cars about 50 ft. south and back on southbound 880. both drivers and drivers died on the scene. i'm told the driver of the crb was in his late sixties or early '70s.
the driver of the bmw was in his forties. obviously there are looking into speed as the possible factor in why this accident happened. another factor they are looking into is whether or not alcohol played a role but is shutdown for four and half hours and shortly before 540 in the morning to reopen all lanes on southbound 880 just south of broadway. condemning a chp officer to slow things down but it was so bad that it took me about 20 minutes just to go from one exit to the next exit and traffic was backed up probably all the way to the macarthur maze of finally they reopened everything and the investigators were finally
done with what they needed to do and it will take a little while to come back with an official cause of what happened with this double fatal accidents. back to anny. >>anny: thank-you will live in oakland. >>erica: the morning everyone. lots of stories and the north bay but temperatures for the most part are in the forties. waking up to partly cloudy conditions you can see in san francisco. all in advance of a storm system heading our way. rain and the forecast for tomorrow. even as to when today. i'll be walking you through the 7 day around the bay and a look at futurecast 4 coming up in 15 minutes. have >>mark: this morning, we are following the latest on those deadly tornadoes ripped through much of the midwest yesterday. this is video of the damage from one of the tornadoes that hit washington illinois. entire

after two strikes, months of negotiating and as you said just a couple weeks ago both of the bart a union agreed on this contract wait not quite yet. that's because the board of directors found a provision that they said would cost way to much money the contract was negotiated and obviously we have those two bart strikes. it's called the family leave act. they said they claim they didn't know what was the side of it and said it could cost up to $44 million a year. the union disputes that number st it's far less than that for it they say either way the contract has been negotiating for it there ratified it. they expect the board of directors to do the same thing. i this point
they say they want to go back to the negotiation table and negotiate that out of the contract. who's stuck in the middle? the bart riders. is there a possibility of another strike? maybe. i had a chance to talk to bart riders this morning. and as you can imagine, they are beyond frustrated. >>: it's pretty stupid because of they should have read the contract before signing it. since they signed it they can go back. why is it of to us to suffer because they can't read a contract and assigned it. so you sign the contract go for it. >>will: are you frustrated? about yes i am and i know i may have to take a very again. and that will cost me a lot more money with my commute to san francisco. >>: of the grant what give
