6:00 am
good morning, it's tuesday, july 1. i'm frank mallicoat. >> i'm michelle griego. time now 6:00. breaking traffic news in oakland. a fatal accident has shut down several lanes of northbound interstate 880. the highway patrol reports the accident involves a truck and motorcycle. this is a live look at 880 right now. this accident was reported around 4:30 this morning and let's go straight to liz to see how it's affecting the commute. >> it's right there as you saw by the 98th avenue overcrossing. so traffic is really stacked up right now from san leandro trying to head northbound into oakland. but hey, you can avoid this by using 580. that's your best alternate. big rigs are allowed to use 580 while this fatal accident investigation continues and at this point we don't have anytime when they will be able to open lanes. traffic gets by in the far left lanes. drive times good on the alternate 580. get off at marina and davis and hop on to san leandro street
6:01 am
instead, as well. the drive times now 20 minutes in the northbound lanes of 880 from the 238 to the maze but once again 580, 238, highway 13 a very quick nine minutes. even though you will be sharing the road with some big rigs for the duration of the fatal accident investigation. here's a look at mass transit. bart systemwide on time. use bart, no delays so far. ferries, caltrain and also also very ace quiet. you're stacked up to the foot of the maze 15 minutes to 20 minutes to get on the span. san mateo traffic at the speed limit out of hayward into foster city. that's your latest "kcbs traffic." frank and michelle, back to you guys. >> all right. thank you, elizabeth. a pair of smoky fires gave some san jose homeowners and golfers a scare. >> yeah. it sure did. the first flames broke out near santa teresa county park in south san jose. but the same time there was a second fire at los lagos golf course four miles away. the fear near 101 and 85 burned 125 acres in a pretty upscale neighborhood there. you can see some of the nicer
6:02 am
homes. this was the view yesterday afternoon. two firefighters taken to the hospital with heat related issues. 100 firefighters and two tankers put out the fire. >> there must be 15 fire trucks out here and sheriffs and police and the air tankers and the helicopters. they did a great job. >> some families were evacuated. workers at the near ibm research center also were evacuated. crews saved a couple of homes briefly threatened and there's no word yet on what started the fire yesterday afternoon. this is the scene at los lagos golf course. the flames got a bit close to the fifth tee box but the golfers were allowed to play through. no one was hurt. the fire is under investigation. >> you have to feel for those firefighters because temperatures in the 100s down that way. but hopefully a little cooler today. >> yes. should be cooler today. in fact, we're seeing stronger sea breeze developing now. so higher humidity so the fire danger will be going down, as
6:03 am
well. still, if you are headed out the door, we have dense fog at the coastline and drizzle there this morning. 90s in the valleys, 70s and 80s inside the bay, sunny and fog at the coastline. fog thickened up this past hour so it's going to be a little thick toward the beaches. 50s across the board now. by the afternoon still about 94 degrees in livermore. 85 in san jose. about 69 degrees in san francisco. and 67 degrees with some patchy fog into pacifica. that's the latest forecast, guys. back to you. >> thank you. fireworks deemed safe and sane are now available in some bay area cities. but are they really safe given the region's tinder dry conditions? mark sayre joins us live from gilroy where fireworks go on sale ahead of the july 4th weekend. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. only a few bay area cities allow safe and sane fireworks. gilroy is one of them.
6:04 am
later today fireworks sales will begin here at these nonprofit booths. all over the bay area fire crews are concerned about the high fire danger. that's due to the high fire danger. investigators believe that illegal fireworks are to blame for a fire in castro valley on friday. neighbors heard a loud boom felt houses shake and saw flames shooting 20 feet into the air. it is likely officials say that somebody threw fireworks from a passing car over a sound barrier along 580. that was put out in a matter of minutes limiting damage. >> fireworks are illegal unless you have safe and sane fireworks in alameda county. and we are asking people to not use illegal fireworks obviously for these very reasons because this could have been much worse. >> reporter: now, here in santa clara county gilroy is the only city where safe and sane fireworks can be used. what's more, you have to be a resident of gilroy to purchase the fireworks. you can only use them in gilroy. all fireworks are illegal elsewhere in santa clara county.
6:05 am
deputies here in the santa clara county will also be out in force on tried with stepped up patrols looking for fireworks violations. and fireworks are also illegal in the city of san francisco. they are illegal everywhere in marin county. they are illegal everywhere in contra costa county. there are a few other cities that allow these types of sales. but you better check your regulations. >> mark, thank you. safe and sane fireworks are not allowed at all in contra costa county and most other locations across the bay area. how long are you allowed to use the legal fireworks? is there a deadline? >> reporter: in the city of gilroy you're allowed to use them from today when you buy them until midnight on friday. after the 4th of july you're done. then they are illegal after midnight on friday night if that makes sense. >> perfect sense. okay, mark sayre live for us down in gilroy. if you haven't made your 4th of july plans yet, now's the time. we have a complete list of all the bay area fireworks shows and the events check it out
6:06 am speaking of fine, another big day for world cup excitement on tap today in brazil. >> yes. the u.s. team is back in action this afternoon. kpix 5's mark kelly is in san francisco getting ready for another round of world cup fever. and mark, you have your cheering voice ready? i'm ready! >> reporter: bring on the world cup today at 1:00. belgium versus the u.s. we're expecting a lot of cheers right here in front of city hall. some of the trucks are already showing up. monitor up and ready to go right now. now, i don't know if you guys have been feeling it, but it certainly feels like a lot more americans are tuned into soccer this year. and we have some hard numbers now to prove that. average viewership is up 32% at 3.7 million people watching espn this year. and that's right, san francisco is now number 3 for the most viewers in the u.s. now, a lot of fans will be tuned in today because this is the first time in 12 years the u.s. could move on to the world cup quarterfinals.
6:07 am
the u.s. coach weighed in on americans' growing love for soccer. >> you see where the game is going in the united states. you know? you can't stop it anymore. it's breaking through. the league is doing a great job there, it's almost 20 years old. millions of kids playing soccer throughout the country. you know, it's growing on every level. and the locomotive of this development is always the national team. in every country that's the way. so we want to do well. >> dangerous thunderstorms -- >> reporter: so a lot of pressure on the u.s. team to do well today. in the u.s.' favor, forward ceocy al that door will be --jozy altidore will be available to play. he had the strained hamstring a month ago and the belgian team could battle without their injured captain. so as far as where to watch, one option is here at san francisco city hall today at
6:08 am
1:00 and at plaza de cesar chavez in san jose. mark kelly, kpix 5. >> i think there will be long lunch breaks today. >> we get off at 12:30. >> there you go. we can watch. the u.s. and belgium haven't played in the world cup since the first tournament in 1930. >> and back then the americans won 3-nil so hopefully they can pull it out again. california's minimum wage workers will be taking home bigger paychecks starting this week.the base rate is $9 today. it is one of new laws taking effect today. another expands paid family leave benefits to include time taken off to care for extended family. and public agencies won't be able to ask buy criminal convictions on job applications anymore. employers will first have to decide whether the candidate is qualified for the job before digging into the person's background. 6:08. more u.s. troops heading to iraq in addition to the troops the president has sent there
6:09 am
already. the mission is to protect people working at the u.s. embassy secure baghdad's airport, beef up military escorts. the additional troops will also be equipped for combat. president obama concedes congress will not overhaul immigration laws this year. so he says he will do what he can legally on his own. the president expressed frustration and some anger yesterday during an address from the white house rose garden. the senate reached a bipartisan deal on the issue last year but house speaker john boehner told the president last week there will not be an immigration reform vote in the house this year. >> the failure of house republicans to pass a darn bill is bad for our security, bad for our economy, and it's bad for our future. >> in a statement, speaker boehner said, quote, additional executive action from this president isn't going to stem the tide of illegal crossings, only going to make them worse. time now 6:09. the oakland mayor under fire one more time. why a driver involved in a crash with jean quan says the mayor is now giving her the
6:10 am
runaround. >> it looks like something out of science fiction. the view from nasa's flying saucer. >> the sea breeze is back and so is the fog. the cooldown has begun. we'll talk about that coming up. >> and now with just one lane blocked on northbound 880 with this fatal accident investigation before the 98th avenue off-ramp, we'll have the latest drive times plus still give you some alternates for the morning drive coming up. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

6:14 am
la quiche va lovely, injured. >> i have never gotten such a runaround from someone involved in an accident and not be able to get insurance information. >> reporter: to add insult to injury, lakeisha's lawyer says his client can't fix her car either. charles kelly says mayor quan never showed lakeisha her insurance documents. and despite repeated requests by him and the insurance company, the mayor still hasn't shown proof of insurance. >> just quit playing games. just do what every other law- abiding citizen in california does when they are in an accident. give over your insurance information. >> reporter: quan told me lakisha never asked for her insurance documents when the accident happened here three weeks ago and when i pressed the mayor tonight she gave me even more excuses. did you show your insurance in that accident that happened? >> yes. she never asked me. i always keep a copy in the glove compartment. >> reporter: but by law aren't you supposed to show insurance when you're in an accident with someone? >> you know, i told her we were self-insured and she should call and she didn't have hers either.
6:15 am
i said why don't we just call tomorrow. so i got to go. >> reporter: her lawyers says you have been holding up the process. >> i haven't been holding it. we just sent her a letter from the city attorney. >> reporter: quan claims the city's vehicle insurance information can be found on the city of oakland's website but all we found was a standard claim form with no information about oakland's insurance policy. why not just submit the documentation? >> we'll let the city attorney handle it. >> reporter: in oakland, christin ayers, kpix 5. nasa has released images taken by its flying saucer research vehicle. yeah, the test was this weekend. a silver teardrop shaped balloon lifted the saucer high above earth on saturday. the images from four gopro cameras dizzies as the vehicle spins but it eventually stabilizes and captured pictures of earth. makes me dizzy. it slashed down near hawaii. nasa is using the vehicle to
6:16 am
test new technologies for future missions to mars. >> great stuff. time for traffic now. liz? >> i know. the gridlock continues unfortunately. you saw that traffic alert across your screen. oakland, san leandro, the northbound lanes of 880. for a while all lanes were shut down. now it looks like just one lane is closed northbound approaching the 98th avenue exit. so it happened just before 4:30. it was an incident involving a big rig and another motorcycle initially. big rigs are still allowed to use 580 until we hear otherwise. in the meantime, the delays right around that marina boulevard exit that's what we are starting to see the backups and you can see it where that bottleneck is there just behind the 98th avenue overcrossing. once you clear past that scene everything looks okay. and gosh, it almost looks like my camera, they may have just reopened that far right lane. we'll check it. the drive times have been holding relatively steady since the accident happened around 4:30 but i would still use 580 as an alternate as a much better option until they clear
6:17 am
the scene. here's a live look at the bay bridge toll plaza. and it is backed up now into the macarthur maze, 6:17, it's typical, metering lights have been on now for a half hour slowing from the approaches, as well. looks like westbound 580 sluggish from 24. san mateo bridge there was an accident reported on the flat section of westbound 92. we can't see it in our camera. there's no delay to the drive time but chp is telling us the slow lane is still blocked on the way to the peninsula and westbound 580 delays begin early this morning out of tracy because of some overnight roadwork still out there in the opposite direction. but things are improving. just kind of slow now from tracy boulevard out through the livermore valley. that is your latest "kcbs traffic." more on your very foggy forecast we have noticed. here's lawrence. >> yeah, the dense fog has moved in along the coastline the fog spreading inside the bay and some of the valleys, too. throughout the day today cooler temperatures outside. we are done with the triple digits. it will still be hot inland in the 90s but as we look toward the afternoon, becoming mostly sunny. cool sea breeze is blowing that will keep the temperatures down just a bit.
6:18 am
and then we are going to see more morning low clouds and fog with some afternoon sunshine the next few days. and some cooler temperatures through thursday. high pressure beginning to slide a little further to the east and that's allowed for more of that sea breeze to kick in so with that onshore flow, we'll bring down the temperatures and, of course, that fog. now, that sea breeze not reaching the central valley. still 108 in fresno. be careful if you are traveling in the high country. some thunderstorms a real possibility this afternoon into lake tahoe. 108 degrees also expected in redding today. low clouds and fog going to pull back to the coastline kind of sitting out at the beaches and sticking around. and then it looks like it's going to push back onshore maybe drizzle again as we look toward tomorrow morning. temperature-wise, we'll keep those numbers still in the 80s, a couple of 90s in the south bay 60s along the coastline, 81 vallejo, 60s and 70s inside the bay. your sunrise time 5:52. sunset 8:36. looking out over the next couple of days, we'll start to cool down but warming up on the

6:33 am
on the list for u.s. cities with the most viewers. it follows d.c., new york, san francisco and then l.a. live in san francisco, mark kelly, kpix 5. san jose firefighters battle two fast-moving fires yesterday afternoon. the first flames broke out near santa teresa county park about the same time there was a second fire four miles away at los lagos golf course. the fire near 101 and 85 burned 125 achers in a neighborhood of homes. and this is the view from chopper 5. two firefighters were treated at the hospital for heat-related issues. 100 firefighters and two tankers from a number of agencies helped get the fire contained last night. at the same time, other san jose fire crews were working at los lagos golf course. the flames burned close to the fifth tee box but the golfers were allowed to play through and that fire was out by about
6:34 am
7:00. >> i'm just thinking you're on the fifth hole and there's a fire surrounding you, i think i might go into the clubhouse. >> probably not a bad idea. >> i know. but they kept playing, i guess. >> kept on playing away. the good news is it looks like the fire danger will be decreasing over the next couple of days. of course, headed toward the 4th of july holiday that's the big concern. out the door we go. low clouds and fog onshore this morning and beginning to fill inside the bay. so the sea breeze kicked in. we have some cooler temperatures on tap today. still some 90s going to be showing up and hot well inland. you will see 70s and 80s inside the bay becoming mostly sunny. but patchy fog lingering out toward the coastline with 60s there. you have plenty of low clouds and fog and some dense fog along the coastline even drizzle this morning. temperatures in the 50s now but by the afternoon, 60s at the coastline, about 85 in san jose. still about 94 degrees in fairfield. all right, let's check the roads with elizabeth. thank you, lawrence. we'll take you back out to oakland. a traffic alert/travel advisory is still in effect for the northbound lanes. but all lanes are back open.
6:35 am
that accident investigation is wrapped up northbound 880 just before the 98th avenue exit. but the traffic alert travel advisory still is in effect while these delays continue. still slow from at least the davis street exit. you can see some of the delays if you are coming northbound. this is a live look just past the accident scene. so the drive times have definitely cleared up. it says only 17 minutes right now between 238 and the maze. but again, we are still seeing some slower speeds especially in san leandro. the accident is right there on the san leandro-oakland border. and chp tells us the big rigs are still allowed to use 580 until they say otherwise. they are waiting for some of those delays to kind of die down. here's a live look at the bay bridge toll plaza. still you're backed up through the maze typical for 6:35 a.m. the metering lights were switched on at 5:46 so some of the approaches are slowing especially 580. and here is a look at all that coastal fog and fog across the golden gate bridge that lawrence just mentioned. it is pretty thick so visibility an issue and now we have a stall southbound 101
6:36 am
right there by the waldo tunnel. that's your latest "kcbs traffic." frank and michelle, back to you guys. >> all right. thank you, elizabeth. happening today, a new fare system going into effect on ac transit designed to streamline the boarding process. hopefully minimize delays, too. the plan hinges on a day pass which costs five bucks for adults, $2.50 for youth and seniors. riders can buy with cash and ride all day with no transfers needed or they can use the clipper card and activate the day pass automatically. single ride fares will not change. and starting today, there is a fare increase for the golden gate transit riders crossing the bay. the cost of riding a ferry up 50 cents for a regular ticket, for clipper card holders it's 25-cent increase. golden gate bus fares increase from 25 to 50 cents depending on the length of the trip. local fares within marin county stay the same. a high-speed chase ended with a crash that shut down a san jose interchange for hours. the man who was being chased survived the car crash. but kpix 5's joe vazquez
6:37 am
reports, what he did next came as a shock to everyone. reporter: family members told a sheriff's deputy that their loved one, the man driving this white car, was suicidal. after a short police pursuit, the man eventually crashed into an suv here next to the northbound 101 ramp at tully road. the suv rolled over, causing minor injuries to the two people inside. a sheriff's deputy not involved in the original chase stopped to render aid but the man walked around to the back of his car, popped the trunk, pulled out a rifle and then shot himself in the head. earlier in the day family members told the cops that the man had left a suicide note and was believed to be walking a trail at santa teresa county park. deputies with the santa clara sheriff's department says that's where they found the man east dog. -- -- that's where they found the man's dog. >> we are searching the park and located the family dog supposedly with this person and the dog was dead. at this point we believe he killed himself. >> reporter: in san jose, joe vazquez, kpix 5. the u.s. supreme court has ruled some companies can be
6:38 am
exempt from the requirement to include birth control in employee healthcare coverage. the specific case involves hobby lobby, an oklahoma-based chain of craft stores. the court decided companies controlled by just a few people don't have to provide contraceptive coverage if it violates the ownerses religious briefs. >> what the supreme court said is that families do not give up their religious freedom when they open a family business. >> it's hard to believe here in 2014 that we're still fighting issues of women to be able to make their own decisions. >> nearly 50 businesses that filed suit over the contraceptive requirement. planned parenthood says under california law, women here will still get contraceptive coverage. 6:38. smartphones holding so much of our personal information. guarding against hackers is important. coming up, the new phone that will have you feeling a lot more secure. >> reporter: we'll tell you why fire authorities are so concerned about the upcoming

6:46 am
in there. as well as the making your web browsing sessions anonymous where most of us feel a ton of searching, communicating and expressing how we are. it also works on wi-fi hot spots which are typically a great big no, no for any kind of sensitive information. it will secure and incrypt that data, as well. what it does is it works inside the phone to encrypt data and talks to a virtual private network over the wireless system. so it's sort of got two ends that are communicating. one on your phone and one pout there on the wireless network -- one out there on the wireless that allows them to handshake. here's a list of the wi-fi settings all these different areas you can control of text and contacts and phone things that you want to maintain privacy on. now, one of the first questions we get is okay, will this work for criminals and terrorists? >> yeah. >> who is t for. >> i can't tell you how many questions we get from average people who say everything i do on my life is on my phone.
6:47 am
how do i make sure it won't fall into the wrong hands and get exposed? not so much that you are being snooped on but all your data is being aggregated by carriers and websites and then if that were to be discoverable, able to be subpoenaed and hacked, it's discovered in the release. you can't predict it. that's the mindset. >> who makes it and how much is it? >> it's made by a small consortium of phone makers as well as some privacy experts that brought this out last march. 630 bucks. there is no subsidy on this. the carriers aren't offering it on their usual two-year get a cheaper price deal so you have to pay full freight $630. they are very hot. and very sort of you got to get in line to get one but if you are interested they sell them on their website. >> what about the wireless providers? >> they are gsm phones so you
6:48 am
have to go to a carrier with the chip so you have to go to at&t and t-mobile, get the voice and data you want. then the phone works differently on the network than other phones by its own internal security and this special server it talks to out there. >> is it a good phone? >> we are just getting our hands on it. are there any bad phones these days? that's the thing about smartphones. maybe you got one. >> simple. >> all right, brian cooley, thank you. let's get to traffic with liz. >> thanks, guys. a travel advisory still remains in effect in the northbound lanes of 880 even though everything is back open. we are still seeing just the residual delays after the right lanes are blocked for more than an hour starting it right around 4:30. a fatal accident investigation. it was all happening right around that 98th avenue exit just before in the northbound lanes. still pretty sluggish now from the 238 interchange and chp is telling us that they are allowing big rigs to use 580
6:49 am
the best alternate until 8 a.m. that's to help ease some of the traffic flow in the area. you can see it a little bit backed up on the 98th overcrossing. things improve closer to the coliseum. even the downtown oakland exit looks good. at the bay bridge we have a backup. metering lights turned on early around 5:45. it's slowing from berkeley to emeryville so the drive time jumps to 24 minutes. westbound 580 heavy traffic typical about a half hour from the altamont pass to the livermore valley but it really is slow on the approach to vasco. and for silicon valley drivers here's what it looks like now in milpitas. westbound 237 just beginning to slow between 880 and about zanker road. that is your latest "kcbs traffic." the fog is moving in especially across the golden gate bridge. here's lawrence. yeah. thickening up outside. we are looking at delays at sfo of over 45 minutes on arriving flights due to the clouds that are back. they are going to help to cool
