5:02 am
san francisco. instead, 81 degrees same as yesterday. 91 in concord, napa, sonoma, 92 in santa rosa. full forecast at 18 after the hour but right now let's send it over to jaclyn. >> good morning, happy tuesday. we are tracking a few incidents. a live look at the san mateo bridge. taillights out of hayward over to foster city. caltrans did have one lane closed for some roadwork it looks like they are wrapping up with that and speeds are moving at the limit. you shouldn't have any troubles heading over to 101. let's take it over to our maps where we're tracking some incidents, this is in oakland westbound 980 at 14th street. we have one lane blocked due to a stalled big rig there. not causing a backup. we are tracking an accident in tracy westbound to mountain house parkway, sluggish from the altamont pass to 680, about 25 minutes. in just a few hours closing arguments are expected in the
5:03 am
trial for the man accused of killing sierra lamar. if convicted he could face the death penalty. kpix 5's sandra osborne is live in san jose where the trial has been going on for three months. >> reporter: with the death penalty on the table, jury deliberations could take potentially quite a while after these closing arguments finally wrap up. 26-year-old antolin garcia- torres is accused of murder early sierra lamar back in 2012. the problem with the case is that her body was never found. now, throughout the trial, we have heard discussion about other types of physical evidence key to this trial. >> it's clear from this case that the battleground is going to be the dna evidence and what the defense did suggest that it was contaminated at the outset. >> reporter: that physical evidence is significant including dna found inside garcia-torres' car and on lamar's clothing. that was found in a field near
5:04 am
her home. most recently inside the courtroom we also heard from a digital evidence forensic examiner who said sierra lamar loved social media and used twitter and email on the morning of her disappearance. closing arguments start at 9 a.m. i have been told that garcia- torres has confirmed to the judge he will not testify inside the courtroom. reporting live in san jose, sandra osborne, kpix 5. the man accused in an attack at an oakland university is expected to plea today. one goh is charge with 4 counts of murder. he is a former student at oikos university. the shooting happened on campus back in 2012. 7 people died. doctors recently ruled that he is fit to stand trial. in san francisco, two recent pedestrian deaths highlight a pressing need for safety changes on several streets. anne makovec is live in san
5:05 am
francisco on steps transportation officials are taking today to save lives. >> reporter: there is a big vote today by muni for a new beds and bicycle plan at octavia and market behind me. it would be a mile stretch west to castro street. so this is right through the heart of the castro district in san francisco. that is after those two deadly accidents here in the city in the past few days. 77-year-old woman was killed crossing the street saturday night at lake merced boulevard and font street a pickup hit her and then yesterday, a 56- year-old man died at market and octavia hit by a car at the on- ramp. >> there's a lot of traffic and people don't always look and there's a lot of things you have to look at. >> reporter: 70% of san francisco's traffic crashes happen on 12% of the industry streets the streets shown in violent. some dangerous areas have also
5:06 am
seen improvements like lights that let a pedestrian walk three seconds before cars get a green light and stopping lines that keep cars farther from pedestrians. the plan today would add expanded medians, islands and corners. police tracked down a second teen for a robbery on bart. police say the 15-year-old boy was one of about 50 teens who beat and robbed passengers on a train last month at the coliseum station. the male was spotted last friday robbing a woman in oakland. police say they found him behind the wheel of a stolen car. president trump ruffled diplomatic feathers by inviting philippine president duterte into washington adding that he would even be open to meeting with north korea's kim jong un. >> as he entered his second 100 days, the president has also raised eyebrows over his interpretation of the civil
5:07 am
war. for more insights we turn to marc sandalow. good to see you. duterte and kim, um, kim jong- un, they seem like unlikely guests for president trump, right? >> reporter: yeah. as are his nice words for president xi of china who he had in mar-a-largo, vladimir putin he has always been rhetorically enamored with. the difference with this president is he hasn't mentioned human rights yet. these guys duterte talked about personally with his own hands killing drug criminals outside courts and kim jong-un is a leader who has kept much of north korea in poverty running a nuclear arms program. it's an interested side to this. it was only eight years ago that president obama talked about how he was willing to talk with anybody in the world. he was impressed pilloried by
5:08 am
republicans for saying that was naive. you don't refuse to deal with people we regard as enemies or even amoral people. but usually you bring up civil rights in the same breath. that hasn't happened by president trump. >> some people say the budget deal congress reached seems to offer democrats their biggest victory in months. what's your take on that? >> reporter: democrats did shockingly well in this. so you remember they were fighting about whether or not president trump's money for the wall to mexico was going to be in this budget. president trump backed off on that. let's take the money for security. we'll get to the wall later but in this budget is also money for planned parenthood. there's money to keep obamacare alive. this is stunning when you think about the fact that this is the first time in years and years that republicans have had the house and senate and the white house and you can't filibuster a budget bill. the reason this is happening is
5:09 am
because republicans are divided. there are conservatives and there are moderates and they cannot get on the same page without nancy pelosi's help in getting some democrats on board. there was going to be no budget so nancy pelosi scored a big surprising victory and got in the budget which is something that she couldn't have dreamt of under such republican control. >> finally, what is president trump questioning about the civil war? >> reporter: well, he started out talking about andrew jackson who died 16 years before the war between the states, was very angry about it. then he went on to say this yesterday. >> president trump: people don't ask that question. but why was there the civil war? why could that one not have been worked out? >> reporter: then he went on to clarify that yes, he knew that andrew jackson was dead but he would have been angry. here's what he said in a tweet. he talked about how jackson saw
5:10 am
it coming and would have done something to stop it. now, this is a abject lesson on how when president trump learns something, he assumes the world learns it. why the civil war? no one asked that question. so i looked this up. library of congress in 2002 found 70,000 books that had been written on the civil war. some of them questioned why the civil war was fought. i went to amazon. these are names of books that are out there. [ why. why. why ] many people have asked the question, why the civil war was taught? [ laughter ] >> i'm not sure if it's more disturbing that the president of the united states is not clear about why it was fought or if he assumes because he is asking this question for the first time, he assumed it's the first time the question is being asked. >> thank you.

anniversary of the iphone next month. cbs news business analyst jill schlesinger is here. so jill, apple stock is trading near all-time highs. why is that? >> reporter: a year ago there were worries that apple's growth was slowing to a crawl. the stock price was down 30% from its 2015 high. amazing a year later the stock is up 56%. there are high hopes that we are going to see further growth as the company releases the iphone 8 in the fall. i think the company's thinking that with a few extra features they will get people up to grade or entice some android users to come aboard and i think stockholders have been encouraged by the move from product to services like apple music and apple pay and there are always stories about self- driving cars presented to you by apple. >> jill, i'm still kicking myself for selling all my stock

lower rate maybe they would be using that to fund a bunch of acquisitions. there has been talk about a big one to catapult apple into perhaps the content business or maybe more apps. regardless, with all the money burning a hole in its pocket, apple needs to do something fast because it's got to show it's still a leader when it comes to going forward. not just treading water. >> you're right about that jill schlesinger from new york city this morning, thank you. 5:41. a confrontation over efforts to tear down confederate monuments quickly spirals out of control. >> and exciting new additions for bay area cyclists. i'm live at yerba buena island with that story coming up. ,, ,,
