4:00 pm
two news. this is the fourth. investigators are trying to piece together just what led up to that deadly plane crash there in watson ville yesterday afternoon. welcome everyone to the four this afternoon. i'm heather holmes savage. three people were killed in that midair collision. ktvu jesse gary joining us now from the site of that crash, and watson ville, with more on what investigators are saying, jessie investigators say the mangled twisted record you see behind me will remain here at least until saturday this as their search for the cause behind the collision now centers on the collection of evidence and witness statements. we're going to look into the man machine and the environment as we continue with this investigation. ntsb air safety investigators continued combing debris a airpt friday. they believe this wreckage holds answers to why two planes collided midair,
4:01 pm
killing everyone on board. both aircrafts anytime that there's an accident, or there's a concern whether it's a lot of loss of life, which is the most serious or someone has a flat tire in the on the ramp. it's a small community, and there are people here that certainly are grieving witnesses tell fox to the two planes. one assessment 3 40, the other assessing a 1 52 appeared to be attempting to land at the same time. the smaller 1 52 was piloted by a one time student pilot and was turning to approach the runway, according to the ntsb, simultaneously, the larger 3 40 , with two adults and one dog on board was moving in a straight line in traveling much faster. the 3 20 was flown into the back of the smaller plane, sending it into a field while the larger plane crashed into a hangar. sources say the pilot of the cessna 1 52 was connected to united flight services. visibly shaken staffers inside, declined comment about the loss of life, but one aviation aficionado, says the pilot of the cessna 1
4:02 pm
52 was popular connected to the community. he was a student pilot, and now he's a pilot, but he knows the community and we are very sad. to learn about what happened in the 19 thirties and used during world war two. watson ville municipal has two runways, but no radio tower pilots use a common aircraft traffic frequency. but federal officials say such communication is not mandatory. neither is filling out a formal flight plan when using visual flight rules building a tower. isn't on the horizon, the airspace around lots of villa this particular time nor the volume of traffic would support the cost of bringing control tower to the field, investigators say once their ground surveys are completed, the wreckage will be moved to a private pleasant growth facility specializing in accident recovery and reconstruction. we are working to get the radio communications that were occurring at that day. the ntsb hopes to have a preliminary report in 14 days
4:03 pm
and a final report in 1 to 2 years. the names of all of the victims will be released by the santa cruz county coroner's office. once family has been notified. we live in watson, ville, jesse gary ktvu. fox two news. alex will head back to you and open the investigation. but we hope for some answers soon. jesse, gary and watson bill. thank you, jesse. all right, joining us now to talk more about this crashes. bruce millan , a former united airlines captain, bruce great to have you on today. we appreciate the perspective here. obviously the information so far is quite limited here. it's early on. but do you have any sense about what might have gone wrong here that led to this deadly midair? vision. yeah. i mean, the important thing is that i think both aircraft should obey the standard rule. that what you do is on a downwind like you merge and a 45 degree angle and airplanes should be able to see each other at a certain altitude
4:04 pm
, and that's before they start descending. that's usually 1000 ft. above the field. and then they make a left turn. normally it's left turn with the pilots is on the left hand side of the airplane. so generally speaking , you've got a high wing airplane and a lowing airplane and we don't know for sure yet. that the faster airplane the twin may have been coming in straight in, and the smaller airplane was maybe making his left turn in. yeah that's um, that's that's what it sounds like, based on the radio traffic that the pilots of these two small planes apparently were in contact with each other as they should have been on approach the larger twin engine plane obviously going much faster, coming straight in the pilot of the smaller plane apparently tried to get out of the way based on some of the radio traffic in that kind of scenario. who defers to whom. well, you the airplane is closest to the runway here actually has the right away. so
4:05 pm
the other airplane, the faster airplane would have to give way and make a go around and come back around. and but he maybe he didn't know where this other person was in the 1 52. there's about a 40 not difference in speed. that's a lot let me ask you about one other point, and jesse brought this up in his piece. the watson ville airport has no control tower, which i understand is pretty common at small airports across the country. what kind of communications are typically going on? as as small planes like these prepared to land at airports without control towers? well you you announced your position and whether or not you're on a downwind leg or base leg or final final approach. and you tell them you're maybe one mile out and they on a base leg and you'll be turning final. and then you announce that you've turned final and the other
4:06 pm
airplane made be coming from behind has to tell and listen to what's going on and be able to adjust his feed. as much as possible. faster airplane that was a twin engine like that. you can't slow it too much. it'll stall out. bruce finally, they can't go at the speed of the 1 53 example. right yeah, you have just a tremendous difference in terms of the speed of the two airplanes. finally before i let you go. how unusual is it? sort of. put it in perspective. how unusual is it to have a midair collision like this one? well it's very unusual, and it was three o'clock in the afternoon. and i think the weather was good. uh you gotta see nbcnewyork. and you've got instruments now that people pay too much attention with their head inside the cockpit. and the other thing that's interesting about the approach to 20 is it's fairly steep because there are towers out there about 100 ft. above the ground. and so there's a glide slope is normally three
4:07 pm
degrees. this is 3.5 degrees coming in. alright what we appreciate your perspective today. bruce millan, former united airlines captain, thank you for coming on. thanks for having me absolutely. one teenager has been arrested in connection with that deadly shooting of a safeway worker in san jose that took place back in june. san jose police say that 18 year old to be to a kalakaua of utah is now in custody in connection with the shooting of manuel cornejo. police say that cornejo, who was 24 years old, was working there at the safeway on hamilton's avenue in the willow glen neighborhood when he tried to stop a robbery in the liquor section back on june 5th. a fight broke out and he was shot and killed. anyone with more information on this case, is asked to call san jose police oakland police have arrested two people in connection with a string of rolex watch robberies around the bay area. there have been more than 20 of these robberies over the last several
4:08 pm
months in oakland and other bay area cities. in most of the cases, armed robbers approached the victims and forcibly removed the watches from their wrist, opd says. on tuesday, officers executed a number of search warrants in oakland and some neighboring cities. two people were arrested and officers recovered two guns with extended magazines as well as a rolex watch in connection with those robberies. there's no word yet on how many of those robberies the suspects might have been involved in wealthy continue to target vehicles here in the bay area for their catalytic converters and one recent such theft and the police response has some people in san francisco shaking their heads. proper border. henry lee joins us now live after talking to a woman who saw a man getting ready to steal the device and says police just let him go. heather. it seemed like a slam dunk. you see a theft and progress. call the cops. they come quick case closed. not quite. surveillance video shows a man backing a stolen honda accord into a
4:09 pm
parking space near 24th finanza in san francisco's richmond district. it's three in the morning on tuesday and idling in the street, a jeep with a second suspect behind the wheel. soon unmistakable loud noises, with the two men using the corner as a makeshift chop shop woke up to the sound of you know, like drilling. it's it was extremely loud, and a roommate immediately called police dispatch confirmed this was a catalytic converter theft in progress. the guy in the jeep took off. officers from sfpd s richmond station arrived on scene within minutes. but even though heller and her roommate never lost sight of the suspect, and the officers were talking to him, they wouldn't arrest him. i heard them say that you're free to go. the suspect even asked the officers were the closest bus stop was i was like, why not do the white glove treatment? just order them an uber. it was embarrassing. the overall assessment is that we have to do better than this. officers admitted to the women that their computer systems were down, which meant they couldn't positively i d. the suspect will
4:10 pm
find the owner of the honda. so without enough evidence, they let the suspect go. such inaction. it's hard for me to understand what is the threshold for arrest and what is a reasonable expectation for police action. in a statement, san francisco police said. in part, our job is not just to enforce the law but to ensure everyone is protected by the law . releasing a possible suspect does not mean the investigation is over. in fact, it means the investigation is just beginning. now the owner of the honda was later found and the car was returned to him. he was missing its stereo, but not its catalytic converter. one last note. before that suspect took off. he asked if he could have his jack back. cops told him not a good idea. live in the newsroom. henry lee ktvu, fox two news. new guidance from the fda makes more monkey pox vaccine shots available. the fda has approved a new way to give the shot which requires less vaccine. this new method gives someone a shot on the front of
4:11 pm
the arm instead of the back a doctor with the santa clara valley medical center spoke about the process today at a vaccine clinic in san jose. only 1/5 as much of the dose is used for that intradermal injection compared to the full dose that was used before this was approved by the fda, based on a study that was done a few years ago. in preparation for this exact scenario and out past a possible outbreak of monkeypox that would require dose sparing or stretching few doses to as many people as possible. doctors say people getting the vaccine this way are showing an immune response. that's just just as strong as the response people experience after getting a full dose in the back of the arm. facing fentanyl. the big push this weekend for more awareness and education about the deadly opioid a woman behind a very public campaign here in the bay area on the overdose crisis is going to join me live next developments expected in the

4:22 pm
over a judge's plan to release portions of the affidavit outlining why fbi agents searched former president trump's florida estate judge has given the justice department now until thursday to come forward with suggested redactions of information in that document boxes. lauren blanchard is in washington with more why the public may not learn much, if anything, in fact does go public. line by line. the justice department is likely going over the affidavit, which prompted a judge in florida to allow a rate at former president trump's resort home. they have until thursday to submit redactions. there are a lot of things in an affidavit that they can reveal without actually having to give any substantive information. what people really
4:23 pm
want to know, i think is what was the probable cause. the justice department has already warned. they're likely to h thel learn very little from um, what's left? former president trump says he wants the full document released. i would expect it will get a lot of black ink all over that piece of paper. judge bruce reinhardt will have the final say, however , it still may take weeks or months for the public to get their hands on it. the motion to unseal the affidavit was brought by major news companies who argue it's in the public's interest to know what prompted such an unprecedented move. it is up to the public to determine what is meaningful in this investigation. the already unsealed search warrant showed agents were looking for violations of three federal laws, including the espionage. act and obstruction of justice laws. team trump claims the raid was politically motivated. i think full transparency is what's really called for in this very extraordinary situation, lawyers from the justice department can appeal. whatever
4:24 pm
judge reinhardt decides it could keep the documents sealed a little longer in washington. lauren blanchard, fox news a new poll shows california voters don't want to see president biden seek a second term in the white house. those new numbers will be part of the discussion coming up this weekend on our political show. the issue is that airs right here on ktvu host alex michaelson. joining us now live from los angeles with a preview of this discussion, alex not much support for the president here in california. yeah of course. alex. if you think about it, joe biden won this state by 30 points. but according to a new poll from berkeley and i, g s, uh, 61% of california's don't want him to run. only 31% of him. want him to run of among democrats? it's 46 46, so he doesn't run who to california democrats want to support tied at first with 13% gavin newsom, the governor and
4:25 pm
bernie sanders behind them. the current vice president of united states, kamala harris, at 10% on our show this week, we talked to peter hamby of snapchat news and puck news, and he responds to that new poll. take a look. i read there is newsome and you know him better than i do, but he's made this sort of gamble that we live in a very combative , partisan, polarized atmosphere . and unlike president biden, who wants to make a phone call to mitch mcconnell and who wants to pass some bipartisan legislation? newsom is running ads in florida he's throwing punches at republicans. and the base really seems to like that. um and newsom is also pretty good. i wouldn't say he's the like, smoothest dude in the world. he can be a little stiff, but he gets social media like he's he's dropping video clips all over tiktok and youtube. and, um you don't see t david brooks columns and, you
4:26 pm
know, like watch nbc nightly news. so you know, of course, the white house keeps saying and the president keeps saying that he intends to run in 2024 that they're focused on the midterms in 2022 that could have an impact on whether the president decides to run for re election or not, but it's clearly something that a lot of democrats are already thinking about alex clearly so what is it that governor newsom continues to say he has. what is it? sub zero interest? i believe, right in running for the white house, alex your sense. i mean, what? what do you think? a poll like this means inside the newsome camp. it's does this sort of mean they start shifting towards you know, maybe campaigning a bit more broadly for a run at the white house. are you suggesting they're not already campaigning? brother that's true . that's true. i mean, i think i think that that's the deal is this. i think gavin newsom and most of the democrats everybody
4:27 pm
mentioned there have all said that they are not going to run if joe biden runs again, and there's probably a better than 50 50 chance that joe biden runs again. but if he doesn't i think gavin newsom is getting himself ready to be in position to potentially run and this will only strengthen that argument sure, says something that kamala harris, the vice president from the bay area is not polling all that well in her home state, which potential weakness and shows a potential opening for the governor of california. yeah governor newsom waiting in the wings. we will see how it all shakes out in the end. alex always appreciated. we are looking forward to the program coming up this weekend. that conversation coming up on the issue is it is 6:30 a.m. sunday morning, right here on ktvu. home sales slowing down. we sit down with the bay area expert to talk about the shift in sales and what it means for perspective. home buyers. also helping families navigate the
4:28 pm
start of the school year. the school supply drive giveaway that happened today, all in an effort to make a difference
4:29 pm
4:30 pm
shows home sales are dropping. sales fell nearly 6% in july, compared with the month of june. here to talk more about these numbers is george torchetti, wealth advisor with morgan stanley. george always a pleasure sales down about 20% from the same month the year ago . what do you believe is driving
4:31 pm
that klein well, heather. it's not good because buying a new home for buying an existing home is kind of the backbone of our economy. and if the federal reserve had their way they would slow that down, which they are by raising the mortgage rates. and what happened is on monday,e are all thehey're supposed to be lower costs. of buildings ary high and high mortgage rates. developers are not very confident that they're gonna be able to sell these houses, so they've been slow playing it. they've been pulling fewer permits and permits that they have pulled. they're taking their time building out these these tract homes. so you know for the for the new home buyers coming in. these songs are expensive, and it's really has slowed down a lot now on the new home side in california, uh, the existing home sales in california and actually the san francisco bay area down about 13% the median home price. um in san francisco was about 1.4 million, and now it's trended
4:32 pm
down to 1.3. and this all has to do with inflation and the federal reserve trying to slow down the economy, get the inflation rate down, but of course, it creates chaos with your average consumer who just wants to get into home. and then that's what exactly what we're seeing here. georgia these july figures are based on closings, so the contracts were likely signed in may and june, and as we were just talking mortgage rates really spiked higher in june. yeah and it's not going to get better. i mean, because if you look at the 20 year olds, 30 year olds in the 40 year olds and maybe some of the 50 year olds they're used to low mortgage rates. but if you look at the 60 and seven year olds, they'll tell you back in the day the rates were easily in the 789 and 10% for mortgages and people you know, paid that price, but because of the cost of homes and the escalation, especially in the bay area, um, if you have what it would have been last year. okay so that is a lot of cash flow going out. yeah, so are there any opportunities here for home buyers? do you think well for people that have
4:33 pm
resources and can afford the cash flow. sure there are homes for sale and the price points have come down so they can get a better deal and they can take a higher mortgage rate. if they can afford the cash flow, and then they could refinance it a year later, because we think by, you know easily by next year, the rates will be down at a more reasonable level. you've already trended down about half a point already, and will continue to do that, because the government wants to get people in houses. that's how we have a good, uh good domestic product numbers. you know, at the end of the year of growth in our economy, so there is some hope out there. but for those people that are, you know, close margins just barely getting into a house because of their earnings to debt ratios. it's gonna be a little longer checked for that. and california just expensive. i mean, people have to think about maybe moving to other parts of the country. where the house prices are third of what they are right here. that is a sobering reality for all of us here in the bay area, alright, george machete, always a pleasure, sir. thank you. alright. thanks for having me. alright students around the bay area or heading back to school right now, and that means their
4:34 pm
parents are headed to stores to get all the key supplies they will need in the classroom. those trips to the store, though, can be really expensive boxes. stephanie martini tells us inflation is also hitting back to school is ae expensive time of year. but this year back to school shopping comes with a price tag that soaring amid inflation. ridiculous, absolutely, like food, clothing. everything is all that stuff is ridiculous from the gas station to the grocery store to the pharmacy. consumers have been contending with higher prices, and that's the same kind of thing that's happening at the register. as those school supplies and essentials are being purchased. i think parents we are very concerned me what i'm seeing based on from the national retail federation, you know, spending is a tiny bit of but essentially flat. it's possible that parents are going to be pulling back to an extent where they're not buying everything that they need. smart shopping expert trae bajaj says there's things parents can do to save as
4:35 pm
binders, papers, pencils, backpacks, clothes and shoes or costing more always recommend getting into the habit of using a coupon site. buying in bulk. if you happen to have a wholesale club membership, this is the time to use it. and then i would also say, check out the dollar store because they tend to be very competitive and certain categories like paper is a good one. and she says, go into back to school shopping with a list and a plan when it comes to close, she says, consider buying used items from youth consignment shops. for example, this mom who is also a teacher, recognizing the more costly start to the school year, says, hand me downs or how she manages dressing her three girls. we only do hand me downs or gifts from the time they were born. this one's on the third round of hand me downs that helps a 43 children. right? that's right. that's right. of course, having multiple kids makes back to school shopping, more expensive inflation or not , experts say parents might want to just focus on needs to get the school year started and
4:36 pm
purchase more after the year is underway. stephanie bertini, fox news. all right. it was an exciting day at the oakland academy of knowledge. today hundreds of students lined up in the school's courtyard to receive new backpacks and school supply kits filled with all sorts of items they will need, including binders, notebooks and markers. this back to school distribution was made possible by the school supply drive we've been telling you about for the last month or so. ktvu has partnered up with the nonprofit supply bank dot org to make sure students in need have the tools they need to learn and succeed in the classroom. it was really fun. kids lose your backpack, and this is great for the kids. thank you. good because like before, like we barely had anything like they have everything we need and stuff and then you guys came and gave us
4:37 pm
all this stuff, and now we don't have to worry about axing the teacher for stuff because we already have it. they are all set to go and i was honored to be a part of today's distribution event. i got to help hand out backpacks and supplies to the students met so many of those wonderful kids at the academy today and they are excited about the brand new school year for more on the effort, the ongoing effort to make sure that students across the bay area have the supplies they need as they head back to the classroom. right now. we're joined by benito delgado olson, who is the executive director of supply bank dot org. benito great to see you again. i had a great time out there today at this distribution event. obviously this is the culmination of so much hard work and fundraising by your organization. what does it mean to you when you're out at one of these giveaway events and you get to see the kids getting these much needed supplies? yeah, well, good afternoon.
4:38 pm
thank you so much for having us. it's really the best part of our job. we uh it's been a lot of time behind the scenes making things like this happen in there's so few of the many distributions happening around the bay area we get to participate with and to see 300 kids receiving what in store value would cost about $20,000 to buy. and to see how it transformed their day, especially on a friday and it's cool. so beautiful like oak elementary school. it's really just one of the best experiences we have working at supply bank that oregon. we're just so grateful to the ktvu community for the tremendous support they have. given this drive this year, i really would not have happened without them. yeah and all the kids that that i talked to looking forward to having another great school year, especially with all those new supplies. how important is it for students to have the tools they need to learn in terms of achieving the success that you
4:39 pm
want to achieve in the classroom? yeah you know that's a great question, because it really matters and it goes directly to their ability to feel like they belong in school. it's just like any other place where if you don't have what you need to do well there, you're not going to feel like you belong. and so this is something that the ktvu community has really continued to step up with , so that you can have a direct impact. so every student like the ones we saw there today at oak elementary and many more in all, the communities across the bay area can feel like they're having a strong start to the school year. it's fun. it's exciting. i haven't been in a drum circle like that in a really long time. it was a blast . yeah it was an absolute blast . it was just it was just fun all around. i know you're doing more of these distribution events at other bay area schools here. the effort continues for you before before i let you go. we talked about the school supply donation drive. that obviously is continuing here. our partnership with you trying to trying to get supplies to students here. i know we're
4:40 pm
