6:00 pm
what is going on in oakland? a string of shootings in just a matter of hours. the chaos that had concertgoers running for their lives. he's helped thousands of struggling veterans, but isn't finished. how a bay area veteran is taking his mission to the next level. let us get right to the breaking story happening tonight on the golden gate bridge. >> chopper 5 is flying over an anti-vaccine mandate protest. we are told across just happened. you can see police have closed most of the northbound lanes. cars are still able to get through from one lane of traffic. you see another car pulled over to the side. it is unclear if ats the vehicle involved in the crash we are talking about. >> at one point they had two lanes of traffic open. now it looks like they have completely shut down traffic going in the northbound direction. it was narrowed into one lane, but that is a bridge district trucks, an orange cone
6:01 pm
in one lane of traffic. if they will escort traffic across, which may be the situation here, but you can see how a crash might've happened point that is a cleanup truck. we have some video of the crash that happened earlier, as they try to clean up the mess. this is the video from earlier. there it is. there is the crash. the vehicle hit the bridge district truck, clipped it right in the front. that is why things got closed off. that is adding to this mess, not helping at all. >> that area can be a bottleneck anyway on a normal commute day. several protesters, almost a couple hundred protesters, are gathered near the visitor center. the car was turning in as the road was expanding. it looks like it clipped the bridge vehicle. >> this protest got started about 1 hour ago, because this
6:02 pm
is a nationwide protest being led against the vaccine mandates, being led by first responders across the country. i believe we have a traffic map that can kind of show you the residual impact of what is going on, the video freezing up. you can see what has happened to traffic in the city as they try to make their way northbound, across the bridge and into marin county. traffic is backed up past the presidio, and also down 19th avenue into golden gate park, and the panhandle. >> it looks like cars are only allowed to move 5 miles per hour. unfortunately this is really the only way to get to the north bay unless you want to go around. it looks like it is sl balld always right now point we can see a couple hundred, possibly, several dozen protesters at the visitors center. traffic at one point was being allowed to pass through only
6:03 pm
one lane of traffic. it looks like it resulted in a collision, of a car trying to get past the protest. it looked like it clipped one of the bridge district trucks. >> good news, it looks like they have that one lane of traffic now going, but because of the evening commute, it will take a while for this thing to unclog and filter out. again, this is been going on for a while. i didn't look like from the video that anybody could've gotten hurt. i did not look like it was that high-speed of an impact. the suv just clipped the front of that bridge district truck. there is cleanup. they have to tow the car away, and probably some effect on traffic coming into the city. those three lanes are still open, and it seems to be moving smoothly point >> initially it looks like they block off those lanes of traffic because protesters were almost spilling onto the roadway . there was a line of police vehicles to make sure that people did not try to get onto
6:04 pm
the bridge and close off traffic. >> now they have a pretty good closure going on while they backup traffic even more into the city as a kind of sort things out with the accident. it did not appear to us that any of the protesters got onto the bridge, into the northbound lanes of traffic. as we see, the highway patrol is monitoring things. they have a vehicle across the lanes of traffic, and will have to stop traffic for a while as they clean things up and clear out the damaged vehicles. certainly the suv is damaged. >> unfortunately, any time this type of accident happens, it can have a snowball effect throughout the city point we first brought you this protest live on cbsn bay area. you can watch a 24/7 on our kpix news app, a good on our website, state health officials are now encouraging covid boosters for all adults. >> they have a message for
6:05 pm
vaccine providers. don't turn away adults looking for that booster shot point >> a majority of californians still need to roll up their sleeves for the extra jab. according to the cdc, only about 34% of fully vaccinated seniors 65 and up have gotten a booster here in california, but among all fully vaccinated adults in the golden state, it is down to 14%. wilson walker shows us the push from the state is causing yet another vaccine rush. >> reporter: it is reminiscent of the first rollout of the vaccine, just so much demand for it, and not enough availability. now that the state has dispensed with any kind of guideline, or protocols for who can get a booster, there are plenty of people who have been waiting for the word go. >> i was looking forward to getting it, and i got my email from kaiser with the link to come get it, so i am here point >> reporter: a busy day at the solano county fairgrounds, and the lines you see are being driven largely by those people who were waiting for just the
6:06 pm
right moment point >> i just wanted to wait until the hospital workers could get theirs first, all the immunocompromised, and then waited until it was my turn to get it, so i'm getting the booster today point >> reporter: that was a concern among a lot of would be booster recipients, the fear that they might somehow be stepping out of turn point >> push grandma down and out of the way, and take their place in line, nice. i mean, i think there is plenty of vaccine to go around. i got a note from someone today that actually said, they were telling me how hard it was to find boosters, and how difficult it was to find places, and they would have to go farther and farther afield to get it point >> reporter: the prevailing school of thought is that eligibility requirements are only creating confusion. if the goal is to get more people protected -- >> if we can make it easier for people, let's make it easier for people.
6:07 pm
let's get the availability out there point >> reporter: the booster wave is here, right on top of the pediatric push as well. that is why a lot of vaccine venues are now seeing a lot more traffic point >> people just didn't know when their turn was up. yesterday we shot over 1600 vaccines, and over 211 were ages 5 to 11. we are starting to see that increase, not just in pediatrics, but the boosters themselves. >> reporter: a note on the difficulty of finding an appointment right now. me and my colleagues, we were early johnson & johnson recipients. we are certainly do. i went looking around for an appointment today to get a booster, going the pharmacy route. i could find one appointment in the sort of greater, you know, region here available today. a lot of people are having trouble. here is what happened. i am sort of a regular here at the solano county fairgrounds vaccination site, they heard i was about to run across a couple counties to grab a 4:00 appointment, and they said we have one for you here.
6:08 pm
i got one here. why am i telling you this? i kept an eye on the appointment that i canceled for 4:00, and it was gone within minutes. someone was waiting for the appointment that i had abandoned to get that shot that you just saw, so there are plenty of demand right now among all of the booster folks waiting for the green light. it might take a little while for all of those appointments to become available, as everyone is going out to grab them. like you mentioned, on top of all of the pediatric vaccinations as well, so we hit a bump in the road as far as demand for shots. you may have to wait a little while, again. we are back to that spot point >> but your tenacity is to be admired. i have done the same thing, looking around, and i can't get one. now that i know, even though i'm not old enough, i can still qualify, i will follow your lead point >> yeah. i think a lot of the people that were in line today were of the same mind. they knew they were due. they just wanted to hear
6:09 pm
someone say that it was okay for them to go and do it. i think that we will see that unfold for a few days or weeks, as all of the booster do folks go out and jump in line. >> thank you so much. new at six:00, investigators in hawaii have reopened a cold case murder of a bay area woman more than 40 years later. valerie's friends and family are still holding onto hope to track down the killer. kpix 5's next arrow spoke to the woman's sister, and has the latest on a break in the case. >> reporter: it was 43 years ago when loved ones last saw valerie. >> she was amazing. >> reporter: her sister, donna foster, holds fond memories close to her heart. >> she taught me how to swim. she got me into running point >> reporter: she also holds onto hope that the person that murdered her sister will finally face justice. on april 23, 1978, valerie was found dead at the harry k brown park in hawaii. >> we want this to end. we
6:10 pm
don't want this lingering forever point >> reporter: at the time, valerie was living along the coast of california and l granada. her sister said she wanted to take a trip to hawaii, but nobody could go with her, but that didn't stop her point >> she was a passionate person, really, dove into life. that was why she was in hawaii. she wanted to do, you know, what she wanted to do, which was i can see beautiful things, and play her flute, enjoy life and people. the case was called for decades, but now detectives are actively investigating once again. >> we had recent developments in the case. we have identified a suspect, and the case is being forwarded to the prosecutor's office. >> reporter: detective derek morimoto says even though it has been 43 years since the murder, they are all ears of someone remember seeing or hearing anything around the time of the crime.
6:11 pm
>> our goal is to find closure for the family. they have been waiting a long time. hopefully we can get to that. >> reporter: family friend sure hope so. >> nothing will bring her back, but closure is an important thing. there really aren't words. i would love to see the claimant case closed. >> reporter: foster is ready for this long chapter of life to finally come to an end, so she can move onto the next one, with valerie always in her heart point >> i know it's been a long time, 43 years, but there are people here alive, and well, that loved her and cared about her, and we will never forget her. >> reporter: and l granada, max darrow, kpix 5. >> if you have any information that could help at the investigation, you are urged to contact the hawaii police department point let's go back to the breaking news, the protest, anti-vax he made a protest along the golden gate bridge. this is video of an accident that happened as a result of the traffic being narrowed down to one lane on the golden gate bridge. that suv lips the front end of
6:12 pm
the bridge district truck just as they were getting past the protesters. that has closed down all of the lanes for a while. they did allow one lane open, but then they closed it again. this is having a big effect on the traffic back into the city, trying to go northbound into marin. >> a major snowball effect of people trying to get out of the city, trying to get to the north bay from all angles. let's look at the traffic maps right now. it looks even worse right now. >> the bay bridge is slow as well point >> because folks are trying to figure out ways to get around, trying to take the bay bridge instead, trying to do the roundabout way. this is going to continue to be a major impact of folks, just trying to get around the city right now, much less trying to get out of the city, if you want to go to either the bay or golden gate bridge. be aware that this is going on. it is all because of a protest at the visitor center that has impacted traffic, and caused, it looks like, a fender bender.
