6:00 am
your realtime captioner is linda macdonald. good morning, i'm frank mallicoat. >> i'm michelle griego. time now 6:00. we begin with breaking news in san francisco. a high-speed chase ends in a fiery crash killing two people. it happened at the 5th and harrison harrison off-ramp and that's where where anne makovec reports from. >> reporter: 80 westbound from 5th and harrison, a coroner's van pulled up recently. there was two bodies here dead from a high-speed chase. several blocks closed to traffic from hours this morning. most the local roads are open. this is video taken earlier this morning when that car was engulfed in flames. two people who were in the car are dead one was ejected when the car crashed, the other died
6:01 am
in the fire. it started as a high-speed clays on northbound 880. officers ran -- chase on northbound 880. officers ran the plates and say it was stolen so they chased near 880 and the 80 split in oakland near 7th street. >> in fact, stolen vehicles you never know what you're going to find. most of the time when someone is driving a stolen vehicle, there are other things going on. we find lots of warrants inside stolen vehicles and things like that as well. >> reporter: the chase went across the bay bridge from oakland and ended up right here in san francisco. so far, officers have not been able to confirm exactly how fast the chase was going but from all accounts it was high speed. anne makovec, kpix 5. once again, that traffic alert remains in effect, thanks, anne. i think the bay bridge commute is going to get worse as the morning continues. you can already see the metering lights are turned on at the bay bridge. they were turned on early, 20
6:02 am
minutes ago in fact at 5:40. and so you are already stacked up through the maze and they are cycling through the metering lights slowly to reduce the amount of volume on the bridge itself. you can see from our sensors it looks okay right now until you hit the western span right around that fremont exit that first exit coming into san francisco. it begins to slow and the 5th street off-ramp will remain closed until 10 a.m. that's according to our radio partners kcbs. so again, for just pretty much all of the morning commute. so expect big delays. bart would be a good option if you want to head into san francisco later on especially as this commute continues to really get under way. you can also use the ninth or harrison street off-ramp in the meantime if you are trying to get into downtown san francisco. once again, bart systemwide on time no delay more than 40 trains everything good to go there. ace train one and three are also very quiet so far this morning or you can hop on the san mateo bridge where there's no problem leaving hayward heading to the peninsula. that is your latest "kcbs traffic." it's windy outside.
6:03 am
with the forecast, here's lawrence. i love this late season storm system approaching california right now. some showers already beginning to show up in the northern part of the state. the question, could we see some here? maybe just a cup of sprinkles. we are already seeing drizzle early on this morning and some dense fog out along the coastline. now, not going to be much energy by the time that system reaches here so by the afternoon, looking at partly cloudy skies, 70s inside the bay, 80s for the valleys and 60s and breezy along the coastline. windy in through the delta this afternoon. clouds extending over the bay right now as the ships begin to move in with all the cargo. temperatures running in the 50s outside, some upper 50s into san francisco and into concord. this afternoon, as high as 81 degrees in concord. 77 in san jose. 65 degrees breezy in san francisco windy through the delta. that's a look at weather, back to you. 6:03. asiana flight 214 pilots are mostly to blame for the crash at sfo last july. ntsb credits first responders with saving five passengers but as kpix 5's sharon chin

job was created as a result of the asiana crash: >> a lot of those recommendations mirrored the self-assessment that we did. >> you watch the fuel, all right? >> reporter: emergency crews will test the improvements all together at their annual september plane crash disaster drill. sfo also just bought the 767 training airplane for a more modern realistic exercise. >> those lessons learned in enhancements that we made, we're going to drill to those, too,. >> reporter: sharon chin, kpix 5. >> kpix 5 contacted the fire chief in san francisco, and she said she is proud of the first responders' extraordinary work the day of the crash. asiana also issued a statement saying, quote, we believe the ntsb has properly recognized the multiple factors contributing to the accident, including the complexities of the auto throttle and auto pilot systems and already made changes to the system."

6:07 am
a not guilty verdict in an antioch shooting is causing a firestorm of controversy. this morning, cate caugiran asks, when is it okay to shoot at a 15-year-old? >> if you have a reasonable fear of imminent danger, then you're loved to did you fend yourself -- allowed to defend yourself. >> reporter: two years ago madrona shot a 15-year-old kid in fronted of his house of a bullet did this, grazed the kid's side. >> it he did pull a gun and shoot a kid and he is getting scott freeway. it's not right. >> reporter: vandals had hit raynal's house again and again, someone even used a garbage can to smash his car window. so when he saw kids in front of his house with a garbage can, he got his gun and he said accidentally fired. raynal told the court he was trying to protect himself and his wife basically he was standing his ground. >> mr. madrona was in a predicament where he didn't have time to think. somebody was coming at him with a garbage can over his head while he was in a low
6:08 am
vulnerable position. >> reporter: but the prosecution says raynal overreacted and pointed out after the shooting he climbed on his roof and hid the gun trying to cover it up. tully says he put panicked. >> he put the gun down and was in shock. >> reporter: neighbors don't buy it. >> there was an tan tagnizing on both ends. >> reporter: there is no "stand your ground" law in california. but there is a specific criminal jury instruction that allows a jury to acquit someone based off a stand your ground defense so the term is still in california's books. in antioch, cate caugiran, kpix 5. >> madrona lost his job at sfo after his arrest. his attorney says his client hopes his acquittal will help him get it back. oakland police trying to figure out who killed a woman in her 20s. she was shot and killed on douglas avenue in east oakland last night. officers collected evidence talked to witnesses for hours. but so far police have no suspects. developing news from

"occupiers" say they were getting warnings to leave the campus by 11:40 p.m. they describe the officers as aggressive and unreasonable. it looks like about half of the 20 "occupiers" were taken into custody. the whole thing started yesterday afternoon as a way to pressure google to do more about net neutrality. it's where the sec is considering creating a two tier system with a higher cost broadband fast lane and slower lane for everybody else who doesn't want to pay the extra cost. the "occupy" protest was timed to coincide with a google developers conference and early on in the protest, google said they could stay since they weren't disruptive and police didn't plan to make arrests.

6:16 am
harrison is open. on the western span of the bay bridge off the upper deck to the skyway, delays. 10:00 this morning they are expected to re-open the off- ramp that's according to our radio parents partners kcbs. the metering lights were turned on early so you're quickly stacking up through the maze and relatively like we usually see this time of the morning, a mean a little worst 580 jammed through 24, 24 backed up to children's hospital and we are beginning to see slight delays out of berkeley into emeryville on the eastshore freeway but that drive time is still holding steady. only about 19 minutes right now. but as long as that 5th street off-ramp is closed, i just think our bay bridge ballparks will get worse. alternates, bart is on time. use harrison or 9th street past the crash site. otherwise, everything is relatively quiet. the delays are bad through livermore but they are usually bad at this time of the morning. we also have a high wind advisory that chp issued and better news for this earlier
6:17 am
traffic alert in fremont. all lanes are back open and no longer seeing any delays as well northbound near mission. that's your latest "kcbs traffic." let's see what's going on in weather as you head to work this morning. here's lawrence. >> kind of a busy day this morning. we have heavy drizzle associated with this cold front approaching the bay area shopping up along the coastline. our hi-def doppler radar is showing you some rain in far northern california. see some of those showers right now toward eureka expecting that to stay unsettled throughout the day today. if you plan to go camping towards shasta, be prepared. make sure the tent doesn't have holes in it. expecting on-and-off showers the next couple of days. with that in mind, outside right now we have some thick fog settling in making its way in over the bay and heavy drizzle along the coastline. this afternoon, a mixture of sun and clouds, cooler temperatures. more sunshine and much warmer weather for the weekend. the next couple of days could get very interesting. this late season storm system bringing most of that energy in far northern california. we are going to catch the southern half of it so some

drizzle here maybe a couple of scattered light sprinkles. 80s and 90s into the central valley today, 66 degrees into the monterey bay. computer models showing the system slide through by the middle of the day and the afternoon a few more mid- to high-level clouds move in and overnight into early tomorrow morning more drizzle maybe sprinkles. temperatures, we'll see some 70s and 80s in the south bay 60s along the coastline, windy through the delta. advisories going up this afternoon gusts over 30 to 40 miles per hour there. and then a lot of 60s and 70s inside the bay. sunrise time 5:49. sunset 8:36. over the next few days we'll watch these temperatures bottoming out. high pressure building in, much nicer weather over the weekend and, in fact, getting hot in the valleys back into the 90s. >> time for july. >> yeah. wouldn't you know it? and the 4th of july next week. >> that's right. >> can you believe that? >> time is going by so fast. >> bring it on. this morning, we're finally getting a sneak peek inside the 49er stadium. len ramirez takes us on a tour

ridesharing industry to make some big changes... what prompted calls for reform. k in the lawmakers may force california's ridesharing industry to make some big changes. what prompted calls for reform. >> hillary clinton is back in the bay area today where the possible presidential candidate is headed this time. >> late season storm system headed toward the bay area. will it bring us any raindrops? we'll talk about that coming up. >> and it looks like they are really cranking down on those metering lights going through them slower and slower so our bay bridge backup is getting worse after a major off-ramp is closed on the skyway. we'll have alternates coming up. good morning, it's wednesday, june 25. i'm michelle griego. >> hi, everyone.
6:30 am
i'm frank mallicoat. time now 6:30. breaking news in san francisco, two people are dead after a high-speed chase that started in the east bay. kpix 5's anne makovec is there live and ann, this is a stolen car that officers were trying to chase down. >> reporter: that's right. you can see how it ended right here behind me. the burned-out shell of this car opted shoulder of the off- ramp from 80 westbound here in san francisco at 5th and harrison streets. several local streets were closed for a few hours. those have now been reopened. here's video taken earlier this morning when that car was engulfed in flames. two people who were in this car are dead. one was ejected when the car crashed. the other died in this fire. it started as a high-speed chase in oakland northbound 880. officers ran the car's plates and they say it was stolen. so they started chasing it near 880 in the 80 split near 7th street. >> they tried to stop the vehicle and it fled at the toll
6:31 am
plaza. it took the 5th street off-ramp and hit the left-hand side wall. and the vehicle caught on fire. >> officers have not been able to confirm how fast this chase ended up going across the bay bridge. but by all accounts, very quickly. it's all going to be part of the investigation. this exit is going to be closed until 10:00 this morning so let's check in with elizabeth wenger. >> reporter: up until 10 minutes ago the bay bridge commute was manageable, typical for this time of the morning but i can tell from our camera, they are cycling through the metering lights more slowly. again, this just kind of changed in the last 10, 15 minutes. so i think i definitely would find an alternate to the bay bridge. it's beginning to stack up. the 580 approach jammed solid through 24 and our sensors are showing slowing now from the incline out to the tunnel and then definitely from the center anchorage to that 5th street
6:32 am
off-ramp closure. so if you are trying to use the bay bridge, you can use other alternates into downtown. you can use harrison off-ramp that remains open, 9th street past the crash site use that, as well. but again, the san mateo bridge might be a good option for you. i think that the bay bridge commute will get worse as the morning gets under way. they are not expected to re- open the ramp until after the morning commute until 10:00. southbound 880 to the san mateo bridge sluggish past the 238 interchange to 92. once again no major delays behind the san mateo bridge toll plaza. so this is a much better option for getting into san francisco. 101 looks okay right now, as well. westbound 237 this is a minor accident on the shoulder approaching zanker road. but again, even though no lanes are blocked, it is slowing down the commute out of milpitas. and another great option for bay bridge drivers, trying to get out of oakland into san francisco, ride bart. so far everything is on time.
6:33 am
has been all morning. that's your latest "kcbs traffic." i notice a lot of fog moving into our cameras this morning. >> i noticed a little spider crawling on your cameras. >> it's the milpitas camera. it's his home. >> very nice place to be. [ laughter ] around the bay area today, we have some changes coming. we have seen clouds along the coastline. guess what, a late season cold front diving into the state. can you believe it? we are seeing showers toward eureka and up toward shasta. this is slowly going to sag to the south throughout the day today. we have some drizzle along the coastline right now. there is a chance a slight chance we could see some light sprinkles overnight tonight and early tomorrow morning. 70s and 80s in the bay and valley, dense fog at the coastline, drizzle and 50s. this afternoon awind advisory at the delta, gusts through part of the delta up to 35-mile- per-hour already. that's a look at weather, guys. back to you. >> thank you. on that theme, severe
6:34 am
weather pounding the south and the midwest. storm chasers captured a tornado touching down in plainfield, indiana yesterday. the aftereffects here tossed an rv into a home. in minnesota, mud slides have damaged several homes there. and heavy rains caused flash flooding in parts of fort worth texas. it's a mess. more thunderstorms are expected in the south again tonight. the george lucas museum of narrative art is scheduled to open in 2018. but it won't be in san francisco. lucas decided on chicago instead. the drama over the new museum has been going o for years. kpix 5's andria borba with finger-pointing over what went wrong. reporter: sorry, san francisco, no millennium falcon. no wolfman jack. no jar-jar bing. george lucas' cultural museum is going to the windy city and seemingly the only happy person about this, the mayor of chicago.
6:35 am
>> i can't thank george and melody enough for choosing chicago. this will be a tremendous, as i said, opportunity, a significant step for the city. no other major american city has these type of cultural and educational institutions. >> reporter: the decision and statement by lucas regretful. building in chicago is the right decision for the museum. but the bay area will always be my home. after years of back and forth between lucas and the presidio trust about building the museum on crissy field where the sports basement is, the trust officially 86'ed the plan a few months back. >> i would rather have seen a different outcome, but that is his decision. >> reporter: in a last-ditch effort city leaders offered up seawall 330 on the embarcadero across from piers 30 and 32 for $30 million. but they couldn't beat the $1 land lease offered in chicago. terse statements from the san francisco chamber of commerce and mayor ed lee placed blame on the presidio trust for blowing the deal. earlier this year, the presidio trust unwisely rejected mr.
6:36 am
lucas' proposal for a site near crissy field which we understand forced mr. lucas to look at cities like chicago and put san francisco's chance at landing the museum in jeopardy. in the battle for george lucas' heart and museum, it appears san francisco did not have the force on its side. in san francisco, andria borba, kpix 5. >> and another possible factor that could have swayed lucas, his wife melody is from chicago. she is a cbs news analyst. happening today, hillary clinton will be in san francisco to promote her new book p the former secretary of state and first lady will speak at the orpheum theater at 7:00 tonight. tickets still available by the way and clinton also has a book signing at the book passage at the ferry building that's going to happen thursday morning. you can get tickets for that on the bookstore's website. pilots are mostly to blame for the asiana flight 214 crash at sfo nearly a year ago. but first responders were also
6:37 am
put under the microscopes by ntsb investigators. as sharon chin reports, the board says emergency crews made a lot of mistakes. >> just don't go in there. anybody's in there right now, they're dead. >> reporter: ntsb investigators called it a missed opportunity when two fire rigs rolled over 16-year-old ye meng yuan when she was still alive. >> short window of opportunity for at least two firefighters to perform triage on passenger 41e and verify their visual assessments but they did not do so. >> reporter: and their commanding officers didn't have training in airports or airport disasters. since then, the fire department has upgraded training. >> we can definitely take action to try and limit the secondary strikes that may occur. >> reporter: first responders say today other improvements are in place. emergency responders will now use the same radiofrequency for communication. they can triage patients on the scene in new vehicles, then track them to the hospital. the airport is using a new emergency alert system and the fire department is developing
6:38 am
new procedures to avoid hitting victims. sfo safety director whose own job was created as a result of the asiana crash: >> a lot of those recommendations mirrored the self-assessment that we did. >> you watch the fuel, all right? >> reporter: emergency crews will test the improvements all together at their annual september plane crash disaster drill. sfo also just bought the 767 training airplane for a more modern realistic exercise. >> those lessons learned in enhancements that we made, we're going to drill to those, too,. >> reporter: sharon chin, kpix 5. >> kpix 5 contacted the fire chief in san francisco, and she said she is proud of the first responders' extraordinary work the day of the crash. asiana also issued a statement saying, quote, we believe the ntsb has properly recognized the multiple factors contributing to the accident, including the complexities of the auto throttle and auto pilot systems and already made changes to the system."
6:39 am
you can read the full report and see investigators' animation of the final seconds on kpix.com. firefighter in critical condition after a drill at the oakland airport went wrong. he was driving a fire truck during a training exercise when it flipped over on the tarmac. >> right now with the response, the unit responds individually. it's just one person that's typically in the rig. it's from my initial report that, yes, he was wearing his seatbelt. >> the injured firefighter a 28- year veteran is now being treated at highland hospital for life-threatening injuries. happening today, a rally to urge california lawmakers to force drivers for ridesharing apps like unioner to get commercial auto -- uber to get commercial auto insurance. a girl died on new year's eve when she was hit by an uber driver in san francisco. the driver didn't have
