nbc bay area news starts now. >> right now, at 11:00, former football star is facing criminals accused of a disturbing crime last year at his former south bay home. good morning, thank you for joining us. i'm scott mcgrew. >> i'm kris sanchez. for the first time, former san francisco 49 dana stubblefield answered publicly to rape allegations interest a disabled woman. >> stephanie chuang was there. she has more. >> reporter: here at dana stubblefield's church in san jose is where his attorneys said
this was set to be from the get-go a trial in the media, not in a courtroom. and that he was arrested in front of his kids, at his kids' school yesterday when he would have turned himself in, given the chance. take a listen as stubblefield made a quick comment off the top of the press conference himself. he highlighted the fact that these accusations of rape involve a woman allegedly developmentally disabled is what makes this even tougher to take. >> i'm here to state, without any reservation, that i'm completely innocent of all of these allegations. one of my primary charities is special olympics, something true and dear to my heart. this is why these allegations hurt me so badly. >> reporter: stubblefield and his attorneys went on to say this woman is not a disable woman. a court accepted a plea for her in a family dispute case which does not happen in a court does not consider this person able on his or her own.
we caught stubblefield walking out of jail after he posted $250,000 bond yesterday. all of this stems from april 2015 when a then-31-year-old woman said she interviewed for a baby-sitting job at home. after 20-minute interview the woman got a text from stubblefield telling her he wanted to pay her for her time, when she returned, he paid her $80 and that's when the allegation rape occurred. >> if they truly believe that they had somebody dangerous walking around, would they let that person walk around for a year? so much suspicious that we're headed towards an election for an attorney general's position that this district attorney wants to have. >> stubblefield's team says it's a scheme to get fast cash off the star, they learned six to eight weeks ago about the accusations, the police report and the rape kit that was done a
year ago. adding that the woman texted stubblefield 23 times after the alleged rape for almost a week, the claim she kept asking for money and that was shown in a packet that the attorneys gave to the media here before the press conference began. also, in this packet of information is a lie detector test result in an independent test done back in march of this year. one of the questions that was asked to stubblefield was, did you, on april 8, 2015, force blank to have sexual intercourse with you? the response was no, one of eight questions asked. and the results show no deception indicated. so this is one of the things that is coming out from the stubblefield defense team today. his next court date is set for morgan hill courtroom on june 3rd for his arraignment when he's set to enter his plea. live in san jose, stephanie chuang, nbc bay area news. >> thank you.

remember, it used to be a massive toyota/gm joint venture and it's enormous. when tesla moved in it painted the logo on the side. but it only took up a teeny part of the facility. when that factory was numi it had a capacity of 500,000 cars a year. last year tesla made 50,000 cars tenth of the factory's previous capacity. we're mystified as to why they needed new space. a blogger figured out the building san francisco's zynga occupies is worth about the same as the company itself. when you take the company's market cap and subtract cash it had on hand, admittedly it has a lot of cash, you get the value of the company itself. zynga is worth half a billion. if the building's worth $540 million which the blogger says it is, the building is worth more than the company. tsa says lack of employees and new security procedures have led it to predict the peak

terry joins us now. a bit of a cooldown. >> cooldown and more clouds today. then we get ready for showers. hopefully you've dusted off the umbrella. that is what you will need as we go into the next couple of days with scattered showers. it won't be a total washout. this will be common theme for the rest of the week. a lot of clouds over head as we take a live look now at san francisco. this storm system is starting to move in now, and we may see some of those spotty showers moving into the north bay. but i don't expect widespread rain once again. this will be enough to have you turning on the windshield wipers as it moves on spend the day looking at clouds. as that continues to move in, temperatures are cooler today. it is 59 degrees in san francisco. north bay at 62 degrees and 64 degrees now in the south bay. but as we drop and get a closer look at east bay now, walnut creek is at 67 degrees. dublin 68, livermore, 65.
starting to warm up in some of the spots. and as we break it down for san francisco, mostly cloudy through rest of the day. 62 degrees there. and then, into the evening, still no changes as our temperatures slowly dip into the upper to mid to 50s, mid-50s for 9:00 tonight. if you're planning to head out tone to the warriors game looking good. mostly cloudy skies. 63 degrees. light winds in from the northwest at 5 to 10 miles an hour. a look at all microclimates. temperatures in the 60s, right aen lo the coast, and 70s inland. seven-day forecast bottom of the screen, you see -- we don't have major changes as far as temperatures but scattered showers moving in again. 70 palo alto, 60 presidio. 65 in santa rosa, livermore high of 73. a look at changes with the area of low pressure moving in. and this cold front that is right along the coast.
this will be a very slow moving system, so that's the reason why we will have a few days of rain in the forecast. but this is not a strong system and it will have very limited amount of moisture. but still, just enough that may pop up some of those hit or miss showers and the potential of also thunderstorms heading into the friday as well as saturday. something to be watched. by by the end of the weekend, high pressure moves in, things will dry out and warm up. we'll talk about the weekend and we'll look ahead to even early next week. that's coming up later. >> all right. thank you very much. next, old equipment could lead to new problems. oakland firefighters make a plea to be better prepared for a major disaster. happening now, closely following arrest of former 49ers star, dana stubblefield. our cameras caught him leaving the main jail yesterday. we have a slide show and stubblefield's previous legal
days and the recent, a boat fire yesterday at 5th and embarcadero. officials want a $1 million fireboat, but the city of oakland says it doesn't have money, and requests for a federal port security grant have failed. they say a faster catamaran style fireboat is needed for the emergencies in the estuary and on the bay. >> a platform that could not only be base of operation for rescue but safe harbor for people if we were pulling they'll off of sinking vessel. >> the fire chief says his department can request mutual aid but oakland should have its own top-notch equipment. despite a rainy el nino winter, cal fire leaders say we're not out of the woods when it comes to fire danger. cal fire crews began cutting away as much potential fire fuel as possible. the agency is fighting fire dangers on two different fronts, taking out grasses that grew wildly during the el nino wet
months, while so many trees did not survive the drought. >> we've had 29 million trees in the forest across california that have been identified as dead and still standing. >> cal fire launched the brush leaning to kick off fire safety awareness this week. they will be at lexington reservoir, south of los gatos today. speaking of trees, san francisco leaders may decide the fate of a pine tree. at the center of a neighborhood. it involves property in laurel heights. the owner wants to chop down the pine in his own backyard. neighbors have been fighting that plan, saying the tree is an important part of the neighborhood landscape. supervisors are expected to decide today if that tree should be granted landmark status. coming up -- the plea deal that will give a family of two murder victims some closure. plus -- >> whole truck just kept going and going but my whole world
traffic flows when the light is ever wondered how safe are the railroad crossings in your neighborhood? traffic flows when the light is green and railroad gates are up. >> but we've uncovered serious problems, crashes that could have been prevented. senior investigative reporter vicky nguyen joins us. >> talking about these maintenance of vehicles, they travel on the tracks to take out old railroad spikes but we learned the massive cars do not
trigger the crossing gates to go down, leaving drivers at risk of serious and fatal crashes. >> reporter: a friday afternoon last january, don williams, driving home early -- >> came home every day. >> reporter: -- to see his wife of 24 years, amy. >> he was just one of a kind. >> reporter: don had a green light to make a left at maston and monterey. sarah, making a right, stopped short. i saw something moving in the co corner of my eye, it was a train. i stopped. i thought the rail guards didn't go down, that's weird. and then right then. >> reporter: the off-duty police officer rushed to help but, don couldn't hold on. >> the whole truck just kept going and going but my whole world, everything around it stopped and all i saw was that. >> don was -- sorry -- he was
one in a million, really. he just, you know, was there for everyone. >> reporter: accident reports reveal this maintenance vehicle was traveling 15 miles an hour when it plowed into the side of don's truck. the crossing gates did not go down. >> it's just a blur. just -- it's -- i don't really remember. >> reporter: it appears this was not an isolated incident. we found videos posted on youtube showing these maintenance vehicles passing through intersections without warning all over the country. the investigative unit has learned, in the past five years, 187 maintenance of way vehicles collided with cars injuring 68, killing two. including don. >> it's just outrageous. >> reporter: bob comber is a railroad safety expert who has ininvestigated more than 400 train collisions and testified
in multiple trials against railroad companies. this is a known safety concern. recognized by the federal railroad administration. the agency says, unlike trains, roadway maintenance machines do not always trigger activation of warning device systems and no most cases, they're not designed to. the government allows companies to create their own standards how to safety operate these machines. comber says making matters worse, safety technology on the railroads is severely outdated. >> it gets people killed, injured. a perfect example of the railroad company to use 1872 te technology to detect trains. it should have replaced high-tech train detection over 50 years. >> reporter: but it's the system used by companies nationwide, including union pacific, the company in charge of the vehicle that killed don. after the crash, u.p. told
several investigators it was to stay within 50 feet to ensure the gates would go down. if gates and lights didn't activate, the lights were to stop and workers to flag the crossing. >> what was going on is absolute negligence and madness on the part of these people. they know better yet doing it anyhow. >> reporter: witnesses say the trains crosses one other intersection without triggering gates. at sixth street in gilroy, another driver told chp her husband yelled at her to stop as the train entered the intersection. the witness told police she was worried about other vehicles in the area. >> i believe that u.p. or whoever are the regulators should really look at this. >> reporter: union pacific declined our request for an interview and declined to answer specific questions. in a statement, the company said, immediately after the accident, u.p. met with federal
regulators and reviewed rules. the company said safeties a top priority. u.p. said it regularly tests employees and made rule changes after the crash. federal investigators found the operator of the vehicle at fault for riding backwards. u.p. disciplined him with no time off, and two days of safety rules training. meanwhile, the federal railroad administration didn't issue any penalties against u.p. saying the company didn't violate any federal regulations. the agency did issue this, a safety advisory in the wake of don will. as' death, urging railroads to review safety rules. the fra declined to be interviewed. >> the federal railroad administration should be saying there's gross negligence on the part of the railroad, the operator, and supervisor and it is an industry that is regulating itself. >> i think something should have been done so much sooner. this was such a preventible
tragedy. >> reporter: for widow amy will. as, questions remain, why did this happen? when will it happen again? >> we just totally trust the system will work. i don't want this to happen to anybody else, because i don't. >> amy is suing union pacific. she urges drive to look both ways before crossing any tracks. we've also just learned the santa clara district attorney issued an arrest warrant for the operator of that vehicle. it affects so many people. >> i'm so glad you did this story. i didn't know it was a thing. never occurred this was a problem. >> right. >> you see the railroad crossings when they come down, sometimes people try to cheat those, that's on them. but i didn't know that you could cross a train track and be injured -- >> and not have them come down. so many have no clue. these are not small vehicles.
the rail vehicles are anywhere from 10 to 100 tons and they have safety rules. there are precautions. if the safety systems in place don't work and you as a driver are going to turn on a green light, he was following all of the rules of the road and to have this happen, it raises so many yeses about how many other times this happened. as the widow has said, it was so preventible. >> they have yielded change in the past. hopefully that will change this time. >> that is our hope. if you have a tip for our investigative unit, send e-mail to the firstname.lastname@example.org. >> a new plea deal to provide answers for a murder of a hiker in fairfax. one of drifters accused in both murders has agreed to a plea deal in exchange to testify against his friends. the prosecutors are hoping testimony from 24-year-old shawn
michael angoal will put the other two suspects behind bars for life. people in fairfax troubled by the murders hope the truth provides some healing. >> maybe it helps his family, some way we'll never know or other people as well. hope there's positivity that comes out of this. >> one of the victims' widow battling cancer told us, quote, i trust that justice will be served to the fullest extent for the un-barbable and unforgivable murders and today's events will support this goal. >> a preliminary hearing is scheduled for may 9th. angold is expected to take the stand. a man is facing murder charges after a deadly convenience store shooting in the east bay. antioch place say thomas williams junior exchanged heated words with his ex-girlfriend outside a quick stop store yesterday. he followed her inside and shot her to death. the store's clerk was shot in the arm. he is expected to be okay. the clerk's father, though, says

moves over the bay area. as we get a look at the satellite and radar, we see that there's some spotty rain, starting to make its way into the north bay. but as of yet we haven't seen any measurable downpours. i think we'll see that holding off until tomorrow. but still, cloudy and a chance of sprinkles here and there temperaturewise, in the upper 50s to low 60s. even mid-60s in the east bay and south bay. as we get a closer look at north bay, napa 66. 69 degrees in navato and our temperatures are still fairly comfortable as we see rain holding off. as we break it down for oakland, 1:00, 66 degrees, upper 60s. some spots cooler than average. but a breezy one and mostly cloudy skies throughout rest of the evening. a look at all of the microclimates today. highs low 70s in los gatos and santa rosa, 65. peaks of sun in the try vally.
