ursula brown had her car bumped from behind. and when she pulled over, she was abducted, she was raped, shot repeatedly. kevin martin was 18 at the time. and admits to taking part in three bumping robbery incidents but he insisted all along he was not there when ursula brown was stopped. >> a lot of pressure to close the case so they picked kevin. >> reporter: his current defense team blasted the fbi dc police and others who basted much of their case in 82 on a pubic hair sample from martin, convinced by his defense team he could be convicted, he took an alford plea. he didn't agree to the murder, but agreed they had enough evidence. recent dna has led to the exoneration. >> i just feel like it was my time, man. it is about time. i can never get that back. and i feel like i missed out on
a lot. on a lot of opportunities. to be in a position to maybe do as well as you. you know. anything was possible. >> you mad at anybody? >> i'm not mad. i'm not a bitter person, man. you know. >> and that was bruce johnson reporting. kevin was paroled in 2009, but the court didn't officially clear him until this week. federal prosecutors had been investigating the fbi forensic unit that convicted him and they uncovered other mistakes. in the past five years, four other men have also been cleared. well quite a save in san francisco. tonight, a guy who fell asleep in a dumpster is safe. this recycling truck picked up the dumpster this morning and he was about to be crushed to death. the driver heard some banging inside his truck. he headed to the nearest fire station and they got him out just in time. one guy is getting a lot of flak tonight for the shortest uber ride ever.
he posted his receipt on reddit. check it out. he only went 95 feet and it cost him 4.28. the rider attributed his poor judgment to a night of fairly heavy drinking. a new music video is getting a lot of play tonight. pop star colbie callat was fed up with being photo shopped. she talked to betty yu about what scared her the most with this new video. >> reporter: she know it is demands of hollywood, but she doesn't have to try very hard to be beautiful. she is staying at saratoga's mountain winery with the kind of self-confidence she hopes to inspire with her newest hit try. in the beginning of this video,
colbie and the other women appear dolled up. she ditches her hair extensions and fake lashes and wipes off her makeup to reveal her natural look. >> i hoped it would get attention and i hoped it would atect women and people. i mean, i'm even getting grown men telling me they this song and this video makes them cry. >> reporter: colbie told me that being a woman in the industry is exhausting. >> it is an anthem for self- expression. >> it came from the personal experience of being in the music industry and feeling like i need to always look polished for people to like me. >> reporter: for this video shoot, she didn't go to the spa or hire a stylist. >> was it liberating or frightening? it takes a lot of courage.
>> yeah, it was frightening at first. before i was like cool, this is awesome. i'm excited to do it. but when i got there, i was just in front of the bright lights and the hd camera. i was looking at everyone watching the monitor and of course, i'm just thinking okay, they are seeing that i have really light eyebrows. they are probably looking at the mole on my forehead. >> reporter: colbie says the song is not antimakeup or antiphoto shop. >> just be confident in your own skin. >> reporter: at mountain winery, betty yu, kpix5. it is time for weather. and i have a question for you. are you tired today because of the weather? did the lightning wake you up at 5:00, 6:00 yesterday morning in earlier this morning? we had thunderstorms in july which is a rarity around here. things are cruising back toward normal. we have the on shore flow returning. we have cloud cover, fog tomorrow morning anywhere near
the water. 1-5 scale i'm rating fog factor a 3. the fog will burn off all the way out over the water giving you sunshine in daly city and pacifica. mainly sunny skies. very interesting weather pattern. all the monsoon moisture will stay well to the south unless we have something to get it from there to here. that something is a big area of high pressure over the four corners. grab that moisture, shove it into california. then a low took it further up to the north. that moisture is now causing rainfall in seattle and in vancouver, but it made a stop here and we had our wettest day in july in 14 years with that rainfall moving through. so one more humid night tonight as the low sits off to the north and west, but then here comes the ridge back where it should be. it found its home for mid july.
that will bring back the on shore flow. cooler weather at the coast though the ocean temperature is in the mid 60s well above normal. so even the on shore flow will not cool us down like it usually does. it will be less humid, sunnier starting tomorrow. then after thursday, we are going to get pretty warm well into the 90s away from the water. one more below average day for concord, walnut creek. 5 degrees below average. campbell, you will hit 80. san ramon, 81 for a high. vallejo, 76. kentfield, 69. and clear lake tomorrow, sunshine, 83-degreings. your extended forecast, the rain is gone. 90s are back and prepare yourselves for a hot and sunny weekend away from the water. that is your forecast, we are back in two minutes. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

now some of the ducklings were also headed for the road, so the woman pulled over to call 911. >> i was sitting there. i saw a few of them try to go in the westbound lane and got run over. it was terrible to see. >> so she jumped out and rescued the remaining birds. a state trooper noticed and fined her $100 for stopping on the median. the median is only for emergencies and ducklings are not an emergency. we have bay area teams trying for a chance to qualify for the little league world series and for the local big boys teams, nine innings, not enough to settle matters. both east and west. ,,,,,,,,,,,, hey pal? you ready?
