well, good morning. i'm dave clark. >> i'm tori campbell. let's go right to sal. there's an accident on the san mateo bridge. which direction? >> westbound, tori, westbound, heading out to foster city. you will see traffic slowing down. it was first reported -- it was first reported as a tanker truck. now you can see it building -- almost all the way back to the toll plaza, not quite. when you get off the bridge or past the toll plaza it does look good briefly and then you slow down all the way across. this is because of a vehicle that broke an axle westbound, 92, near the high rise of the building. if you are used to pretty good traffic, our newschopper2 is gonna do the -- tilt down. as you can see, as we get closer to the high rise, on the shoulder, there's gonna be just a vehicle that was conked out.
it's a little hard to show. it looked -- there you go. here is the -- the map of the problem. so it's westbound 92. you might want to use the dumb bar to be bridge instead. this is a -- dumbarton bridge instead. this is a huge line. there's the crash. it's on the shoulder. no one was injured. but it's causing a big delay as people are taking a look at what's going on. they also have to get a large tow pickup truck. we'll follow that and have another update in a moment. let's go back to the desk. some tents had to go away and others were allowed to stay at an encampment. here's more from allie rasmus. >> you can see this is a pickup
truck, the city truck which -- they just finished loading a bunch of canvass and tarps, stuff left behind and they left this stuff behind. there is also a couch out here. all of that stuff is cleaned up. it's in the back of that santa rosa city tow truck you are looking at. and it appears police and the city are trying to move this stuff away. police came through and did a partial sweep around 3:45 this morning. i think partial because if we pan off to the left behind this row of police officers. the behind all of them are tents still standing. those tents belong to the people who got permits to camp out here. the police did not evict the permanent protesters and the people who had those permits will be allowed to go back to the tents. while police did this clean up and did the sweep, all of the protesters had to stay away,
something some of them were not happy about. >> they could have isolated -- done it during the daytime instead of wake everybody up. is that supposed to disorient people or whatever? >> reporter: police say there were 1 tents with permit, 26 tents without permits. but even the protesters with permits can't stay out here forever. >> the permanent process has been suspended. there will be no more permits issued. after the november 30th deadline that decision will be up to the city manager's office and city council. >> whether to renew or extent. >> reporter: police say everything went smoothly last night. most of the protesters they said left voluntarily, one thing i want to -- what i want to point out is the opposite side of santa rosa and first. when police say some of the protesters left voluntarily,
they did. but many just went across the other side of the street. it's certainly very possible a little later on that some of those protesters, ones who didn't have permits might be coming back to the site later on today. live in santa rosa, allie rasmus, ktvu channel 2 news. >> thank you. there is new life this morning, meanwhile, in the occupy oakland movement. protesters have staked out a new home. tara moriarty is live in west oakland to explain why demonstrators believe this will be different from previous camps. tara? >> reporter: we've been hearing a lot of honks and cheers from people as they go through the site and a lot of people are getting behind this 99% movement. you can see where the pents -- where the tents have been issued. occupying the line of a basically foreclosed property. they moved in last night around 7:00. there's probably about three
dozen people karned out. one guy told me he just lost his job. so this movement really means something to him. the protesters see this as a win-win. they want to draw attention to the foreclosure dry sis and greedy -- the foreclosure crisis and greedy expects. >> basically, we're working with the people. >> reporter: the last encampment police took down was snow park at lake merritt. that happened early in the morning. jean quan says this can no loweninger be so tolerated because it's -- no longer be tolerated because it's putting a strain on local businesses. we did see a patrol car go by a couple of minutes ago. protesters say they have the blessing of the homeowner but
