5:13 am
another warm day in san francisco. she will have the full forecast come up in just a few moments. three months after a horrific limo fire on the san mateo bridge we learned the findings of the criminal investigation. five women died when they couldn't get out of that limo. abc7 news reporter vic lee has the story you will only see on abc7 news. >> reporter: the chp wanted to see if anyone was criminally negligent. they focused on the driver, orville brown, and the owner of the limousine company. sources tell us at the end of july the chp decided there was no evidence to press criminal charges against the two men. then suddenly brown's estranged wife said publicly that the two argued on his cell phone shortly before the fire as he was driving. >> i'm sure he could have saved them, you know. but he was on the phone. >> she charged that her husband was playing music too loudly and
5:14 am
not paying attention. when her media interview surfaced, investigators renewed their robe of brown to see if he was too distracted to react quickly to the emergency. sources tell abc7 news the chp reviewed his cell phone records and determined that he had not been on the phone with his wife during the fire, and that there was no other evidence to charge him criminally. the chp's conclusion is that the tragic incident was the result of a mechanical failure. the stretched limousine burt into flames on the san mateo bridge on the night of may 4th the fire killed five women. four others survived by crawling out of a narrow opening to the driver's compartment. this cell phone video shows the fire started in the rear of the limo. witnesses say the back of the lincoln town car was extremely low to the ground while it was traveling across the bridge. sources with knowledge of the probe told us that the air springs, called balloons, in the rear of the limo somehow
5:15 am
deflated, setting off a domino effect that led to the fire. this man manages a garage that services limousines. he explains what most likely happened when the balloons failed. >> these are air springs. they aren't even air shocks. air springs and they carry the weight of the car. one has a rupture on it, the whole car drops down to basically almost on the tire so the car with the weight, it bounced down too hard and ended up hitting the gas tank, which is right in this spot here. it might have hit the gas tank and then you see when it hit the ground it will create a spark. >> and that spark likely ignited the fire. rick lee, abc7 news. in egypt the muslim brotherhood said a son of it's spiritual leader has been killed in fierce clashes in downtown cairo. he's one of more than 80 people killed yesterday. number killed this week has reached a staggering 700. muslim brotherhood angry their
