7:03 am
somerset drive. this is around 8 o'clock last night. we do know that 3 people were in one sedan, 7 others in a large suv when they slammed head-on into each other. i can tell you there is no center median at this particular stretch. and yes, they do drive highway speeds. they slammed into each other when the police department came out here announce that 4 people had died from this horrible collision and the police department just about 2 or 3 miles from here. so it didn't take them very long to rush out to the scene. and when they got her , they saw what they describe is perhaps the worst seen they have ever come across. >> i've been working in this county for 26 years and this is probably the worst crash that i've seen on this stretch of road. >> so let's head back out live right now. you can clearly see the speed limit. this as 50 miles per hour. and there is no concrete barrier separating
7:04 am
either direction. comparison would be like vasco road that we do know near livermore. same deal as far as nothing that separates the cars. obviously that played a role in the crash as far as why they crashed, whether or not they were sleeping at the wheel. if it's alcohol drugs, we don't know at this particular time, but that's part of the investigation. we do know. fortunately, the 6 people survived their injuries and also another fortunate incident. we have not gotten an update on the number of people killed. yes, sadly, 4 people died from this head-on collision. but that number remains at 4 an easily could have gone up. but we do know that 6 people, we're still in the hospital this morning, reena and area. >> all thank you. well, happening today, barr could decide to reinstate their mask mandate and it's because of that new variant is so catchy. lot of people have covid. so let's go to kron 4. sarah stinson with more on this in

7:06 am
that they're doing it protect themselves and others. let's hear now from people i spoke with just moments ago say they're in favor of the bart board directors requiring masks going to get. >> yeah, that's where i'm i wear my you know, to protect myself, but also to protect other people. so makes sense. >> what's it been like the last 10 days where it's not been required? >> i can see that people are wearing i think it's a good idea. >> and so clearly those 2 people in favor of the mask mandate being reinstated. if you have a strong opinion on this either way you can voice your concerns at the meeting. it's going to be on zoom and they'll be taking public comment. it starts at 5 o'clock will be interesting to see what part does darya reyna. if i was a betting woman, i would say they're going to reinstate it, but we'll have to now back to you. speaking another big story is
