was a juvenile take a look at that car that went in there alameda county fire tweeted this photo you can see the car was badly damaged authorities. say a man drove the car about 50 feet into the store. they do not believe it was intentional. the driver is cooperating with our investigation remained on scene. we don't believe he's injured and we are ruling out any impairment at this time. we don't believe alcohol or drugs played a factor in the collision. cruise managed to back the car out of the store you can see they had to use a saw to widen the doorway authorities. say store employees did a great job assisting the injured before emergency crews arrived and about 45 minutes after that incident a car drove into an office park in san jose. this happened at oak tree garden offices on loma verde drive near winchester boulevard. the driver was trapped and rescued. there was no information about any injuries crews are examining the structure of that building a stunning new photo shows the exact moment of a mid-air collision between two small plains and watsonville last month the ntsb shared this
6:01 pm
picture today taken by a witness. so this is the first time anyone's had a chance to see it in the public the agency's preliminary report reveals another pilot who was also in the air at the time saw the two cessna's collide both were coming in for landings at the watsonville municipal airport. the airport does not have a control tower. that's not unusual for small airports three people died. a crash including both cessna pilots radio recordings indicate they were in communication and had seen each other shortly before the crash. good evening. thank you for joining us tonight. i'm on the dates and actually now to a pair of stories new at six from the i-team. it's been two months since san francisco's district. attorney brooke jenkins became the city's top prosecutor her appointment came with big promises to clean up the city and hold criminals accountable i-team reporter stephanie sierra sat down with the da to track down and track whether those promises are being kept cheese here with us tonight steph. well dan from day one brooke jenkins promised to restore law and order here in san francisco
6:02 pm
and over the past two months. she's in for stricter penalties to address two key issues playing the city drug use and property crime. the question is will the new policies clean up the streets you promise san francisco's you'd hold criminals accountable. what are you doing now to make that happen. so again, it comes back to creating guidelines and policies within our office about how we're going to hold these offenders accountable even for stricter penalties for drug users drug dealers and juveniles a week ago today. you announced a policy that will bund misdemeanor drug possession charges, can you walk us through how that will work? yes. so the police have begun siding individuals who are engaged in public and open drug use we can't become a city that just allows people to use drugs openly in public and so they will cite people that they see engaged in that activity and we will discharge the first four of those citations, but keep track of who these individuals are that have received those
6:03 pm
citations upon them receiving a fifth. we will then charge the full bundle of all five and then forward that to our community justice center where they will then be required to go drug treatment services last month you enforced a stricter penalty for drug dealers to ensure those arrested with over five grams of an illegal drug face felony charges rather than be sent to rehabilitate of court how many felony drug charges has your office filed to date my understanding as of this morning? we filed 148 cases with respect to drug dealing since i took over data published to your data dashboard shows a slight uptick in drug cases prosecuted by your office, but the charging rate for narcotics crime seems to be on par with your predecessor chase at boudin. do you expect that to change? i expect to see perhaps similar rates as far as the charging but what you're going to see is a difference in the way that these cases are handled and the way that they're resolved the people who live in the tenderloin say the open drug markets are
6:04 pm
getting out of control. when do you think these policies are implementing now will actually reflect change on the streets. so we're very hopeful that that will be very soon. we're also working with the cisco police department to make sure that we are assisting them in any operations that they that they're doing down in the tenderloin. we're encouraging them, of course to make more arrests when they go out and make an arrest we will do our part to ensure that there is accountability. and so we're expecting hopefully to see that difference on the street very soon to find soon in the next few months. really. jenkins added she has reducing the caseloads of the team's designated to handle property crime cases to ensure there are strict consequences for crimes like car break-ins, but of course, we'll be tracking the disposition of those cases to verify whether those promises are kept and dan her office is in the process of making that data public so we can follow up on this good. stephanie obviously in november elections coming up very quickly is the new da confident that she
6:05 pm
can win or will win. well a poll commissioned by her own office shows. she's leading with 49% of the vote. that's a 23-point lead over her opponent. john hamasaki and what i asked her today, she said she's feeling optimistic but it says there's a lot of work to get done before then so we'll see. okay, stephanie. thank you. now to an i-team update that you'll see only on seven a development today in oakland's ghost ship fire that killed 36 people in december of 2016. the alameda county prosecutors says the man responsible for that tragedy violated his probation and wants to send him back to prison but the it stand noise has been in contact with derek elena his wife and his attorney. they tell a different story. derek omena pleaded no contest to involuntary manslaughter in the deaths of 36 people who died in a dance party heat organized at his artist collective in oakland known as the ghost ship. he served years in prison, and now the alameda county district attorney filed this petition. that was sent amana back to jail

it building a better bay area moving forward finding solutions. this is abc 7 news. president biden is hailing the tentative agreement that averted a nationwide rail strike. that could have hurt the economy and american families mr. biden
6:30 pm
celebrated the deal with business and union leaders in the rose garden today. he praised both sides for the deal which came together after a marathon negotiating session lasting 20 hours under the agreement rail workers will receive a 24% raise over the next years the contract keep in mind must still be ratified by union membership, but that is the expectation. bart is celebrating 50 years of service and all this week. abc 7 news is taking a look at the past present and future of the bay area's biggest transit system a lot certainly has changed over barts first 50 years. and of course a lot more will change in its next 50 as our society embraces remote work and new innovations like autonomous vehicles. can bart survive another 50 years abc 7 news reporter stephanie sierra tries to answer that question. bart has long been the backbone of our regional economy for 50 years people have relied on it to travel to and from work the
6:31 pm
airport recreation and to shop. but today the train sit pretty empty to what it once was how empty this bar graph will give you an idea. it shows ridership from 6am to midnight during july this year. you'll see the orange line shows on average more than 133,000 people road bart on the average weekday. that's only 32% of what it was pre-covid with the shift in demand. it begs. the question will bart survive 50 years from now, so i think we'll have bart we brought this question to an expert with insight into every transit authority across the bay area andrew from here. he's the deputy executive director for the metropolitan transportation commission or mtc. firewood to envision bart 25 and 50 years from now. i think it's a pretty safe bet that bart will pretty much be the same institution. it is in 25 years. it is today why from here points
6:32 pm
to significant long-term investments that transit system is about to get an entire new fleet of trains we have about 700 vehicles already. they're on their way or in service and over the next 10 years, you know, another several hundred to a thousand will be here each train replacement costs 1 million dollars. so the incoming 1000 trains will equal a billion dollar investment over the next decade. we're not going to waste that investment. we've got to figure out a way to incorporate that into the future. well bart is here to stay. its future will look different there's plans for seamless experience that adapts to new innovations like smart cars and autonomous vehicles making it easier for riders to get to their destination and that involves maybe one transport account. maybe under the clipper and envelope that allows you to take advantage of maybe more efficient ride. share technologies automated vehicle technologies that can get you to that trunk line.
6:33 pm
what will that experience look like in 50 years. we'll ride share companies in autonomous vehicles like these robo taxis be the new normal in 50 years. we're going to see robo taxis everywhere mark rose kind is the chief safety innovation officer for zukes amazon self-driving vehicle company based in foster city offering mobility as a service. unlike uber or lyft. it's a carriage style car where passengers face each other. there's no steering wheel side mirrors or traditional driving controls. so you're gonna have your own little cocoon where you get to sit there and enjoy your ride with optimal air conditioning and whatever music you want zukes will soon be launching this robo taxi service that will allow consumers to request a ride via an app. they're already discussions about times in san francisco when you've got a big bus in the middle of the night trying to help them shift workers getting two or from their job and we've already had some chats with sfmta and some other groups like perfect circumstance to put a

four-seat robot taxi moving those people more economical all-electric these new innovations are aimed at enhancing accessibility to other forms of mass transit planned for the future. we've got a big extension to san jose that's under construction. we're working very aggressively with the folks on the high speed rail io get at train in to downtown san francisco with a multi-billion dollar tunnel work is underway to invest in long-standing train systems that are moving people from the valley from here says long-term goal is to find ways for people to avoid using parks by incentivizing other transit options like trains and buses. this will reduce congestion on our roadways a problem that's getting worse by comparison congestion on highways has already surpassed. pre-pandemic levels emily loper is the vice president of public policy at bay area council, which conducted a survey a roughly 200 employers over the
6:35 pm
past year to identify future. commute trends the most recent data shows that employees tend to only be commuting to offices two to three days per week. and those days tend to be to stay through thursday according to the july survey 19% of companies will have employees permanently work remotely and 36% of employers have already or planned to reduce office space in the bay area because of that most people associate kind of traveling in their minds with like commuting and getting stuck in traffic on their way to work. well their way home, but actually less than 30% of trips are taken to and from work and that's even lower now that so many people are working from home, of course transit systems are still struggling to recover writers. so where does that leave the demand for bart's future? i think that's one of the huge challenges. well the future compete with the past. i do think that we have to be mindful that it will not be what it was before good innovations
6:36 pm
like zukes offering convenient alternatives take precedence over bar like rideshare companies did to taxis. it's our future to form within five to ten years. they could be commonplace where take your app out and you're taking a bus for one part of your trip and you're getting into zooks for another part of the trip. and it's seamless the only top 78 cents for zooks rose. kind says pricing will be in the ballpark of uber or lyft cost might be about the same when we get started for some consumers. the convenience may be well worth the price. the question is will we all need bart in the same way if they're gonna survive they need to actually become transit agencies. which kata? much more to the kind of the majority of trips that people take which are to the supermarket to go see their friends. well the transit authorities billion dollar investment made today be worth it 50 years from now. i think the pandemic and the change in environment probably makes us think differently about the tail end of that investment

storm concerns hazardous travel a high likelihood, especially if you're traveling sunday morning ponding on the roadways moderate or medium, and then debris flows mudslides down trees power outages. we're low likelihood. here's a look at the timeline. it's a level one saturday night. it's in the north bay a few showers the heaviest of the rainfall will come through sunday morning. we're going to see some moderate to heavy rain, but it's gonna be brief. it moves out. we see scattered showers continuing going into monday. the good thing is the air quality is going to be good as that system comes through even tomorrow by the way and going into monday. most areas will be good live doppler 7 showing you just a few clouds right now tomorrow. it's going to be a brighter day and a milder one mid 80s inland mid 60s coast. you're accuweather 7 day forecast. you'll need the glasses next couple of days, but by saturday night going right on through tuesday, you're gonna need the umbrellas off and on wendy cooler than average showers and even a thunder chance, so get ready for early season rain diana boy.
6:49 pm
this is let's hope it comes. early and often this season. thank you sandy. it's so exciting. all right football season's exciting too larry beals here with that larry dan. i'm not sure that the 49ers hope the rain comes early enough last week, but the traverse is jimmy conversation just goes on and on and on the niners defense what about them? they got some work to do this sunday against seattle not just put 10-point lead in chicago. what is the word on this defense next in sports?
6:50 pm
i believe prop 27 is the right thing to do. i had experienced being in shelters at a young age. having nothing. prostituting. we don't choose this life. i never knew what safe was until i came to city of refugee. people that's coming through these doors are trying to break the cycle. prop 27 will help provide more funding for places like this and help people get off the streets. it feels good to have a place to call home. support prop 27. time. it's life's most precious commodity, especially when you have metastatic breast cancer. when your time is threatened, it's hard to invest in your future. until now. kisqali is helping women live longer than ever before when taken with an aromatase inhibitor or fulvestrant... in hr+, her2- metastatic breast cancer.
6:51 pm
kisqali is a pill that's proven to delay disease progression. kisqali can cause lung problems, or an abnormal heartbeat, which can lead to death. it can cause serious skin reactions, liver problems, and low white blood cell counts that may result in severe infections. tell your doctor right away if you have new or worsening symptoms, including breathing problems, cough, chest pain... a change in your heartbeat, dizziness, yellowing of the skin or eyes, dark urine, tiredness, loss of appetite, abdomen pain, bleeding, bruising, fever, chills, or other symptoms of an infection, a severe or worsening rash, are or plan to become pregnant, or breastfeeding. avoid grapefruit during treatment. your future is ahead of you, so it's time to make the most of it with kisqali. because when you invest in yourself, everyone gets the best of you. kevin: i've fought wildfires for twenty years. here's the reality we face becauseevery day.invest in yourself, this is a crisis. we need more firefighters, more equipment, better forest management to prevent wildfires and reduce toxic smoke. and we need to reduce the tailpipe emissions that are driving changes to our climate.
6:52 pm
that's why cal fire firefighters, the american lung association, and the california democratic party support prop 30. prevent fires. cut emissions. and cleaner air. yes on 30. with larry beale good evening. the 49ers will look to bounce back from their soggy season opening loss in chicago sunday at home against seattle. and while all the attention is on trail lance, trey jimmy trade you like doing this for another year the defense needs to step up. kyle shanahan seemed to go ultra-conservative with the game plan in the opener. maybe trying to protect lance. he also have the weather looks like the niners again not gonna have george kittle this week hasn't practiced because of groin injury that's rust. welly working out at tight end
6:53 pm
and practice niners had a 10-point lead in the second half in chicago could not steal the deal. does that sound familiar kind of a recurring theme in big games for this club defensive coordinator tamiko. ryan says his guys know they got to play better. guys already know they know that, you know, we were in position to finish and win the game. so guys know that and they know what they have to do before as a coach i step in and say anything the guys they already know the mistakes. they were made they already know the corrections. they're just disappointed right? we're all disappointed because we feel like we can play much better than we play and god's know that and you don't have to harp on it for too long because we're dealing with professionals here and they understand what we're here to do. 49ers catch a break that might help trey lance seahawks strong safety. jamal adams is out. in fact, he's expected to miss the rest of the season after getting hurt in the opener had to be carted off the field adams has an injury to his quadriceps tendon and will need surgery. that's rough after just one game
6:54 pm
college football now cal will be visiting south bend, indiana on saturday playing notre dame for the first time since 1967 even better. that bears are getting paid 1.9 million dollars to go play this game. winning right? we went digging into the archives for some old black and white footage cal and notre dame. they played in 1959 60 65. the last meeting was in 67 the irish won all of those games though new cal quarterback jack plummer. he played at purdue before transferring to berkeley, so he's used to going to notre dame, you know? yeah, it's cool, but guess what? we get there's a game to play. you know, we're playing football and doesn't matter what? team, we're playing. and we just got to go out there and play the way we know how to play. i'm a college football. fan as well. and so i grew up watching college football and watched notre dame on television, but at the end of the day, you know, it's our team and the guys on
6:55 pm
the field and maybe one day look back and you know, maybe be a bit more nostalgic about it, but right now it's all football. altoona notre dame on 2. it's only september but on the pga tour the new season started today the fortinet championship at silverado. they got their own calendar catalina defending champ max houma. just finishing up hurting five of his first 11 holes. he's five under as we speak but for back of justin lauer who chipped in twice shooting a career low 63 minus 9 and leading by three after round one and after winning 20 grand slam titles. roger federer is retiring at age 41 federer has had such a smooth fluid game, but injuries the past few years convinced him. it was time to say goodbye fed finishes third an all-time slams titles behind rafael nadal and novak djokovic and seeing federer's announcement today an adult tweeted my friend and rival. i wish this day would never have come. it's a sad day for me personally and for sports around the world.
6:56 pm
i think there are so many people that feel that way about roger federer when one of your arch rivals tells you man, i'm sorry you're retiring as opposed to i can win even more, you know, you've made an impact on your sport and the sporting world in total because federer is just first class all the way. we're going to miss him. yeah, first venus now roger. yeah. yeah well getting older. all right some of us. not have tonight on abc 7 at 8 press your luck followed by generation gap then at 10. it's truth and lies the crypto couple and stay with us for abc 7 news at 11 that is it for this edition of abc 7 news. thank you for joining us some amidates and i'm dan ashley for sandia patel. larry beale aging very well the entire abc 7 news team. we appreciate your time. we'll see you again.
