lamar is nearing this as the defense plans to make its final argument to the jury. good morning, everyone. it's wednesday, may 3. i'm michelle griego. >> i'm kenny choi. this morning, kpix 5's anne makovec is live in san jose to lay out the defense case. >> reporter: yeah. the prosecution spent all day yesterday on its closing argument and later today, we are expecting to hear from the defense. antolin garcia-torres has been in custody since 2012 for the murder of 15-year-old sierra lamar, who disappeared two months earlier. she was last seen leaving for school from her home near morgan hill. now, yesterday the prosecutor held up key pieces of evidence, sierra's purse, muddy jeans and underwear found near a rural shed. he dropped each item on the courtroom floor saying that's how garcia-torres discarded her after he had his way. most of the day was spent highlighting forensic evidence. clothing fibers in his car, her
6:01 am
hair on a rope in his trunk and his dna on her pants. her body, though, has never been found. the prosecutor said yesterday, quote, the reason why sierra isn't able to tell us what happened is this defendant. do not reward him. >> what the defense has to do, though, is say, maybe the dna evidence points to the fact that sierra lamar and antolin garcia-torres met. but does it equal murder? >> reporter: the prosecution got a jump on the defense strategy suggesting that sierra lamar was unhappy at home and just ran away. the defense will likely lay out that theory in its closing arguments today. the prosecution has already called that absurd. all parties will be in the courtroom this morning at 9 a.m. live in san jose, anne makevoc, kpix 5. new this morning, investigators say that a san jose police officer shot a man who was possibly involved in a family disturbance. officers were called to a home

6:03 am
contractors start converting diesel train cars into electric ones. but there's a renewed sense of hope because the trump administration renewed the money in the federal budge. $100million would be returned to the project. that would be a small part of the $2 billion. >> our economy depends on infrastructure that's going to take people to work, return them home again. >> reporter: california republicans are against this plan because it would eventually become a part of a statewide high-speed rail system which they don't support. plus, caltrain would still need a $647 million grant from the federal transit administration for the project to move forward. but democrats argue that this electrification would bring 9600 jobs to the area and it would be better for the environment. in san francisco, jackie ward,
6:04 am
kpix 5. let's check traffic and weather. >> we are tracking a big accident involving a car that flipped over and this is on westbound 237. so anyone who is traveling out of milpitas and on to -- from 880 to 237 is in this backup. we can see speeds that drop below 15 miles per hour. it looks like six cars on the side of the road. the right lane is blocked so expect delays there. we are tracking another crash along 880 for folks heading southbound as you approach "a" street. three car crash slowing you down below 35 miles per hour. a live look at your ride on 880 and this is between 238 on up towards the maze there. the traffic on the right side of your screen going northbound is in the green 26 minutes. so looking good northbound. hat's a check of your traffic; over to you.

6:06 am
up to the low 90s santa clara valley. good morning to you in los gatos and saratoga at 92. how about east bay stacking up to 95? brentwood, tracy, oakley, orwood and discovery bay? it was 94 yesterday in pleasanton. also in dublin. same again today. 93 concord, clayton and walnut creek. north bay numbers from 70 in stinson beach to the mid-80s in san rafael and petaluma. again you had that record high of 94 in napa today low 90s with that west wind. and upstream we go to 92 degrees in cloverdale. but more of that westerly wind cooling down the coast not reaching the inland areas. our first "spare the air" day of the season. we do have unhealthy levels of particulate matter close to the surface. a lot of haze around the bay area especially "aversely" affected will be the east bay and that's what we find this morning our kpix 5 reporter jessica flores who joins us live now from walnut creek. >> reporter: good morning.
6:07 am
as you mentioned, we don't have a lot of wind. that's causing some hazy skies. we are expecting a lot of pollution today. its supposed to be bad in areas like concord and walnut creek. that's where i am today. the first "spare the air" alert issued for the season is coming during the air quality awareness week. the bay area air quality management district says the unhealthy levels of smog are due to the hot weather, light winds, combined with the car exhaust. the air district is encouraging people to carpool or take public transit. but they have some other advice as well some lifestyle changes for people. they claim people can reduce their carbon footprint by eating less meat. >> i can do it because i have done it before. i just, you know, for those who have grown one meat and potatoes, not going to happen. >> reporter: so that might not be in store for everybody. but the air district says raising and slaughtering cattle releases high levels of
6:08 am
unhealthy emissions. so long term the air district released an 85-point plan that includes a lot of direction and regulations for the oil industry. out here live the air district says it is encouraging people to exercise earlier in the morning when there's less smog. president trump is airing his frustrations with the budget process. this comes as the house will debate and vote or the $1.1 trillion government funding bill. it should pass with bipartisan support and head to the senate. in a tweet, he wrote: >> this after democrats claimed victory when congress passed that budget which includes funding for planned parenthood but none for "the wall." >> the president is frustrated with the fact that he negotiated in good faith with the democrats and they went out to try and spike the football and make him look bad.
6:09 am
>> democratic minority leader nancy pelosi is calling president trump's threats reckless. on twitter she said: country needs a white house shutdown. working on it." new this morning: the n-s-a collected over 151 million phone call records last year. this even after congress limited the agency's ability to collect them in bulk. since the september 11th terrorist attacks: the n-s-a has been gathering a vast quantity of telephone re the nsa collected hundreds of millions of phone calls even when prevented from doing so. since 9/11 they have been collecting phone calls with phone calls and time and duration of calls with the phone numbers. 6:09. the rushing truckee river has become the newest tahoe area tourist attraction. next, why people from across the country are flocking to see it. >> and here we go again! the heat is on. i'll talk about the near and
6:10 am
record warmth and where to expect it coming up. >> and we are tracking hot spots for you and we'll have an update for you on this crash on westbound 237 near zanker blocking lanes. >> put on hold why san francisco lawmakers aren't planning to vote on a plan that would require city departments to use only electric vehicles. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
6:11 am
6:12 am
who are these people? the environmentally aware. the ones with their eyes on the sky and our air. they say our clim'air. why do they worry? why do they care? the energy conscious people among us say small actions could add up to something... humongous. a little thing here a little thing there starts to feel like a badge maybe millions can wear. limiting showers to only five minutes. turning off lights in a room unless they're in it. air filter changing, solar installing unplugging, dial-turning, thermostat-lowering off-peak-time users all joining forces.

"blaring horn" onoma-marin in our bay area watch, people of petaluma will once again hear the train horns. [ bells and horns ] >> engineers on the sonoma-marin area rail transit authority, or called smart train, began sounding their horns again this week.
6:14 am
the city implemented a quiet zone at some crossings, but the rail authority complained that the practice was putting safety at risk. federal authorities agreed and ordered engineers to resume sounding the horns. there is going to be some new flood protection in menlo park. a company just got approval to rebuild the chrysler pump station. the station is currently at chrysler drive and bayfront expressway. the new system will move closer to highway 101. the goal is for the new system to be able to handle a 100-year flood. construction will start early next year. a vote on electric car use has been postponed by san francisco's supervisors. the proposed legislation would have required city departments to use only electric sedans by 2022. but high costs have stalled the process. the city still needs to bit fleet of electric cars as well as install charging stations around the city. the estimated price tag could be between 20 and $60 million. that's a big difference 20
6:15 am
and 60, right? >> big time. >> yeah. [ laughter ] >> $40 million. >> well you're going to feel the difference as you head out on the roads right now. because things are definitely slowing down. compared to what we were tracking 10 minutes ago. take a look at the bay bridge toll plaza. traffic stacked up beyond the maze. your ride along the eastshore freeway. now, that's not too bad. we're still seeing some speeds in the green but definitely getting crowded out there. we are tracking a couple of accidents southbound 880. this is as you approach "a" street. those cars over in the center divide you can see those sensors drop below 35 miles per hour. and westbound 237 near zanker road we have an overturned vehicle couple of cars over on that shoulder there and two lanes blocked only two lanes of traffic get by in that westbound direction and it's starting to back things up for drivers heading along southbound 880 as you head into milpitas so just a heads up if you can head on over to 680 that's moving at the limit. that's a check of your traffic. a river in the tahoe area has reached flood stage and the

gushing waters catching eyes from locals and tourists alike. visitors from as far as florida are taking a moment to snap a picture and water officials are expecting even more runoff through june. so the increased flows out of lake tahoe last week are keeping a careful eye on the dam. meanwhile, natives and tourists are pausing to soak up the sight. >> it's so beautiful, crisp and compared to florida because of so much humidity. >> having grown up here it's sad. on the other side of this dam you would walk out there because there was no water to go to the lake. >> and at a lodge overlooking the river, many visitors were excited to see the water was so close that they could touch it. look at that, roberta. >> that's gorgeous, isn't it? >> you see how clear it is? speaking of how clear it is visibility is unlimited with a few high, thin clouds this morning. otherwise 6:17 the sun is making an appearance and mount
6:17 am
vaca official sunrise this morning at 6:11. look at the numbers. how mild is it? darryl yee is our weather watcher in alameda reporting 59 degrees. the barometer is on the rise and when you see that happening, it's building in and that is what's providing us with our temperatures a good 20 degrees above average. calm winds half moon bay now, calm in san francisco. this is so different than 24 hours ago when san rafael had a wind up to 12 and 15 out of the northwest. these winds will be rotating around later today to the west pretty flat 5 miles per hour. we will due to the lack of a good wind have moderate air quality throughout most of the bay area a bit of a haze in the atmosphere. east bay however you will be the recipient of some unhealthy levels of particulate matter, pm, trapped close to the ground. three things to remember today:

[ laughter ] >> i'll keep enjoying it. you know, i feel like i got one of the better seats in the house at no cost. energy always game 2 is tough, especially a team coming in trying to steal one on the road so we can't be relaxed.

6:31 am
to work, a few critical things have to happen. step one the house and the senate have to approve the tentative budget then caltrain has to get $647 million from the federal government that they need in order for this $2 billion project to work. it's a project that caltrain said would create a lot of possibilities for commuters between san francisco and san jose. contractors are standing by and waiting until all money is approved before they begin converting diesel train cars into electric ones. and the sfmta supports caltrain as well because of the transbay transit center. it's being built right now in downtown san francisco. if this project falls through the sfmta would need plan be. >> it's a big blow because if it can't be electrified it's going to be a very expensive bus station. it's not totally dead yet because the president might put the money in for it -- maybe. i wouldn't bet on it.
6:32 am
>> reporter: high-speed rail experts say running diesel trains underground isn't practical so if caltrains doesn't get electric trains approved the transit center in san francisco doesn't get trains at all. that center will cost about $2.4 billion. annually it will cost $20 million to run. in san francisco, jackie ward, kpix 5. let's get a live picture this morning as we take a look at the bay area skyline. beautiful rising temperatures prompting the first "spare the air" alert for the summer season. and there are plenty of ways that we can help out air quality managers this morning. kpix 5's jessica flores is live in walnut creek to explain. jessica. >> reporter: the air district is saying people can make changes to reduce the carbon footprint and this week especially it's going to be really bad in east bay cities, concord, clayton and walnut creek. that's where we are here. and this "spare the air" alert are the first of the season is

accused of kidnapping and killing a missing morgan hill teen. kpix 5's anne makovec is live in san jose with the stakes in this high-profile case. anne. >> reporter: yeah. and a lot of this case depends on circumstantial evidence. the prosecution laid out its closing argument yesterday. today we are expecting to hear from the defense. antolin garcia-torres has been in custody since 2012 for the murder of 15-year-old sierra lamar who disappeared two months earlier after she left home for school in morgan hill and her body has never been found. yesterday the prosecutor held up key pieces of evidence sierra's purse, her muddy jeans and underwear found near a shed in a rural area that he dropped each item courtroom floor saying that's how garcia-torres discarded her after he had his way. but most of the day was spent highlighting forensic evidence. sierra's clothing fibers in garcia-torres's car. her hair on a rope in his
6:38 am
trunk. and his dna on her jeans. the prosecutor also played the 911 call that sierra's mother made reporting her missing. an emotional moment in court. >> it did have a big impact on me. i can't imagine that poor mother realizing -- coming to the realization that her daughter's actually missing, actually gone, can't be found, and -- and -- it's -- from that day forward, the panic, the terror. >> reporter: the defense suggests that sierra lamar was unhappy at home and just ran away. the prosecution called that absurd. now, garcia-torres is also accused of trying to kidnap three women in 2009. the prosecutor called those alleged attempts dress rehearsal. he said, quote, this man enjoyed the chase and he needed one thing from each and every woman including sierra, their bodies. closing arguments set to resume this morning at 9 a.m. live in san jose, anne makevoc, kpix 5. we have learned just how
6:39 am
much it cost to keep the peace during protests at uc-berkeley last week sparked by a scheduled ann coulter appearance that never happened. the controversial conservative speaker canceled the speech over safety concerns but hundreds of people gathered on campus on thursday to make a point about free speech. 400 police officers and deputies were on hand to keep them safe. the estimated price tag about half million dollars. in the end violence never erupted. but uc-berkeley stressing the presence of law enforcement was the reason why. in a statement it said: palestinian presid oud abbas at the whi se today. this comes as the director of the fbi heads to capitol hill wher president trump will host palestinian president mahmoud abbas at the white house today. this comes as the director of the fbi heads to capitol hill where he will they have front of a senate committee on -- where he will testify in front of a senate committee on fbi oversight questions on the meddling of russia in the 2016 election will come up the feds didn't stop president trump from weighing in on his former
6:40 am
rival hillary clinton saying, fbi director comey was the best thing that ever happened to hillary clinton in that he gave her a free pass for many bad deeds. clinton partly blamed russian interference and russian hackers for her election loss. >> i was on the way to winning until the combination of jim comey's letter on october 28th and russian wikileaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off. >> clinton made those comments as president trump spoke by phone with russian president vladimir putin yesterday. the two leaders agreed to work on u.s.-russian diplomatic efforts in syria and plan on meeting in person in july. there are new details in the case of a young black man who was shot and killed by a texas officer. we now know the officer has been fired. the police chief says the body cam footage tells a different story than what was originally reported. officer roy oliver said he was
