dangerous. i'm not surprised. and that's >> i knew this day was going to come because this just like i see everybody skating here. >> the family of the school crossing guard identified him as 45 year-old. ashley d s they say ds had just started working to help kids cross the street to protect them from cars. police combing through the suv while closing off school street between avalon court and paradise court tuesday afternoon. the accident shaking up the community surrounding the school. too many people are speeding around all these towns. lafayette has a problem. >> with distracted drivers. i'm not paying attention, especially from the schools and going where the speed limit and obviously now this is cause. a tragedy. >> police had several investigators working the scene. neighbors say this is an unfortunate but harsh lesson for people to be aware. people need to realize that kids are back at school and they need to slow down.
>> but we're still working to confirm more information about this accident with lafayette police tonight. they have not told us again what the circumstances were surrounding this crash. they also have not told us about the driver of the conditions of the driver. whether or not that driver has been arrested or is facing any charges in this crash. we will, of course, bring you that information once it is released on us reporting live in lafayette. dan thorn kron 4 news. >> thank you, dan and a new development tonight. this is in the east bay as la meta police city of alameda. police say a driver who ran a stop sign and crashing into another car killing a man monday night has now been charged with manslaughter and dui. this happened near cambridge drive. and for inside boulevard. police say the suspect blew through the intersection slamming into a car. it was carrying 2 people. nicholas bianchi was driving the second car and died. his passenger was hospitalized with serious injuries. but is expected to
survive. the suspected drunk driver has not been identified. a bill aimed at limiting deaths from automobiles here in california cleared a big hurdle today. >> the bill that some are calling a game changer would give cities a bigger say in determining speed limits. our coverage on the call live for us. the newsroom with the details on this. jonathan. >> you know simply go 43 now on its way to governor gavin newsom's desk that bill would let cities have more flexibility in determining speed limits that they feel are best needed for their cities in just the last few hours, one east bay city tells me that they are already making their plans as soon as this bill is signed into law. >> speed versus safety. we often get drivers cutting sure, because the neighborhood speeding fatal traffic crashes across the bay area have soared in recent years. funding solutions. that's plagued bay area cities. >> folks who are who are, you
know, having their pets run over. we cyclists with this front hit by important. but help is finally on the way. >> wednesday. the california legislature gave the green light to assembly bill 43 the bill would give cities the power to lower speed limits in some areas. berkeley mayor jesse arreguin calls it a game changer. >> chair, you know, because state state law largely dictates what speed limits are with some exceptions such as sitting sitting speed limits are in school sentence. so to have broad authority to look at adjusting speed limits in areas where there's high rates of, you know, collisions and injuries. it's just it's really critical right now. speed limits are said based on the decades old rule of the 85th percentile. >> which is the speed at or below what 85% of traffic is moving in a certain area. this bill would give cities the power to lower speeds down to as much as 15 miles an hour, if needed.
>> some people are not like that. but at the same time, we have a responsibility to make our streets safe for everyone. >> according to the national transportation safety board speed played a factor in nearly a 3rd of all crashes in the united states back in 2019. a report from the university of california institute of traffic studies also found that reducing speeds by just as much as 5 miles an hour to reduce injuries in some cases by as much as 40% this works, this works and making our streets safer for kids for seniors, for people to disabilities. the price tag to implement. this is definitely worth it. no one should lose their life. >> to collision. >> so there would be a cost in trying to change all of those signs if cities do implement lowering the speed limit. although the price tag on that still unknown, as you just heard from there. again, he says that reducing the speeds and replacing those signs, though. it's still a whole lot cheaper than having to reconfigure entire roads. this
bill would apply to local municipalities in streets on those cities but not impact major highways and interstates live in the newsroom. jonathan mccall kron 4 news. >> thank you, jonathan. the national weather service is issuing a fire weather issuing a fire weather critical conditions expected the east bay hills and they have a range. the advisory goes into effect tomorrow at 05:00pm. it expires friday at scary stuff. the concern is that dry lightning in the just like this time last year we're dealing with others, lightning complex fires. >> thanks to terrible lightning storm in august of 2020. hopefully we're not going to repeat that kron four's. gayle ong reports. >> firefighters are monitoring the weather and want to remind people to stay vigilant ahead of this fire weather. watch. >> it happens quickly when it happens. and that's exactly what happened at the cash buyer lake county last month. residents had to rush out of their homes. sometimes you have a lot of times they're
