police would assign the homicide unit to this case to try to figure out whether or not something criminal took place or if this was natural causes. we're at the terrace villas apartments here in south san jose off mikati circle where about 1:15 a call came in to 911 to say the 7-month-old baby boy was unresponsive. when the police arrived, the boy had been declared dead. police, as you can see, are still here on the scene where they've been for the past few hours. no arrest haves been made and they're trying to figure out whether this is criminal, whether foul play was involved and perhaps if this 7-month-old baby boy died from natural causes, perhaps sudden infant death syndrome, something along those lines. it's standard in this case until they decide it's not criminal that the homicide unit is assigned to this. that's what's happening right now, sjpd still trying to figure out what's happened here.
bob redell, "today in the bay." this morning a search is on for a hit-and-run driver who plowed into a group of south bay cyclists. what witnesses say the driver did moments after the crash. "today in the bay's" christie smith live in campbell with more on the investigation. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, laura. i put in a call to campbell police. they tell me they're still looking for this driver this morning and of course asking for the public's help in finding him. witnesses say this driver plowed into a group of bike sicklists in a bike lane and turned off the headlights to the car, turned the corner, all of this to avoid being caught, never stopping to check on the people who were down on the ground and hurt. one of the riders showed us the injury that he suffered to his leg. he was on a bike ride with five friends. this is early saturday on west campbell avenue. says he heard the car coming up pretty fast behind him. he say there was no time to move. the car, a dark-colored honda sedan swiped him from behind,
hitting him in the back and leg, then it crashed into his friend nickie. she flipped over, landed on the ground and was unconscious there for about two minutes. friends say she suffered a fractured skull, hip and broken leg. >> there's really no explanation for why the car would have been in the bike lane. >> he knew what he did. that person knows, and it's sad that someone has the nerve to just take off after you hit someone on a bike. >> the bike she was riding on has a bent wheel and damage to the frame. police say that there was something left behind, a piece of a right mirror and a head lamp. those were on the street. the car sped off down winchester boulevard with the lights off again. police asking anyone with any information on this hit-and-run to please give them a call. reporting live in campbell, christie smith, "today in the bay." the san francisco fire department says it is not exactly sure which one of its trucks ended up hitting and
killing a teenage survivor of the asiana airlines crash at sfo. the fire department spokeswoman says the first trucks to respond to the scene were foam-throwing trucks. she adds it's unlikely the teenager was killed during that initial response. on friday the nbc investigative unit was first to reveal the truck that ran over the girl was not equipped with infrared imaging technology, something that is now required by federal law. a possible second b.a.r.t. strike is less than two weeks away and a deal does not appear to be imminent. both sides met with state mediators yesterday. but after that b.a.r.t.'s largest union announced what it calls an investigation into b.a.r.t.'s chief negotiator. the union says thomas hawk is a union buster who has not shown up for a number of bays of negotiations. b.a.r.t. released a statement saying face-to-face meetings are not uncommon when mediators are involved. time is 6:05.

the more daytime heating, the better the chance gets. today keep in mind, keep your eye to the sky. we could see some pretty strong thunderstorms develop. we'll be track them for you all morning long. 6:07. first let's check the drive as promised. >> we're definitely looking out for that, christina, warning the folks. with our live cameras out there, we have access to our windows around the bay as well. i've zoomed in on the roadway. this is 101 in san jose. even though the radar and road weather index showing the potential for wet roads, they're not really wet, maybe damp in spots. don't let your guard down t. green painted over the map shows the entire part of san jose, 680, 101 and 880 likely to have moisture, wed roadways. that could mean slick roadways from the oil and grease out there. you see south of 280 looks dry as far as our road weather index goes. as far as traffic, not a big
deal. 101 at the south corridor. it's a surface street off to the side of the road. the blue here through the altamont pass, a lot of rain, talking about the thunderstorm breaking up over there. we do have possible wet roads and maybe ponding and puddling as you come across the altamont pass. by the time you get to highway 84, you get damp roadways again. traffic builds from 84 through livermore and 580 approaching the dublin interchange where things dry out toward castro valley. san mateo bridge, a nice drive over the bay. you're looking westbound with the taillights off the flat section. you can make out the high-rise when you see the clouds hovering over the peninsula. watch out for slick on and off-ramps as you come off highway speeds and we'll end with a live look at the bay bridge toll plaza because it is traffic tuesday. the heaviest volume likely of the entire week. we see it at the toll plaza, metering lights turned on just

boy" at the top of the bt tower in london. throngs of people celebrated at the gates of buckingham palace well into the morning. >> it's a party all over the world. the next stop for the family being a closely guarded secret. you know when no one is saying much, there's all kind of speculation. people asking will they stay at one of the queen's estates or perhaps in the middleton's home village of buckle berry. prince william will be taking two weeks paternity leave before returning to work at an raf pilot. eventually the new family will live in kensington palace where reportedly they are not planning on having a nanny. >> as for the baby's name, all births in england must be registered within 42 days of the child being born. though pour the royal couple an announcement is expected much sooner. prince william's name was announced a few days after. his brother harry's name was
announced as they left the hospital. >> for more royal baby coverage, we'll take you live to london coming up at 6:45 this morning, in about half an hour, we have complete coverage on our website, nbcbayarea.com. >> so officially we are on baby watch. >> that's ended -- i guess a new version of baby watch. >> get to see the baby watch. 6:11 right now. coming up, swimmers nearly take a dive right into the mouth, a big mouth of a whale. >> i'd say. >> the other guys say they've never seen me swim that fast before. i can see why now that i've watched the video. >> we'll tell you how these central coast swimmers along with these guys almost became a little buffet out there for the humpback whales.
kind of an interesting sight for a tuesday in late july. look at all this rain on the radar this morning. grab that umbrella. the south bay is getting hit the hardest. we'll track these thunderstorms and showers as they develop to the minute right to your doorstep. >> what's up with that, christine? it is july, isn't it? it's tds. have your traffic flow expected. you see that is the case for berkeley. with the mist and slick roadways possible, watching for the spin-out reports as well. be careful. i'll give you the latest. here is a look at the top stories. san jose police sadly investigating the death of a 7-month-old baby this morning. police say that baby was found unresponsive at a home near blossom hill road and monterey highway. right now this hour it is not clear if foul play was involved or if the baby died of natural causes. >> the santa fe unified school district is considering legal action to get hundreds of
students' ap test scores reinstated. the board will meet in a closed-door meeting to discuss the issue. the students' scores were dropped after they say mills high school didn't follow seating requirements during exams. in new york, laguardia airport opening back up a runway where a plane crash landed yesterday afternoon, the front landing gear on the southwest flight collapsed upon impact sending sparks flying out on that runway. a total of eight people ended up going to the hospital suffering minor injuries. you have to see this one. talk about a close call. two drivers have quite a tale to tell this morning after they were nearly swallowed by humpback whales along the central coast. >> that's bananas. >> too close for comfort. "today in the bay's" marla tellez live in the newsroom with pretty unbelievable video and the incredible story behind it. >> this didn't happen very far from the bay area, off the coast
of avila beach, just about a three to four-hour drive south. here is the map. here is the story. this guy, sean stanback and a few diver buddies set out to study whales over the weekend. when they got about 2 1/2 miles out, they got more than they bargained for. you can see sean, the other guy in twart. out of nowhere two giant humpback whales looking for lunch. fortunately for sean, they spared him and his friend. sean says he could have reached out and touched one of the massive mammals. >> i figured i'm going to get hit by the tail. so i tried to get out from underneath from above the tail and i worked my way over to the boat, got up on the back of it as soon as i could. the other guys said they'd never seen me swim that fast before. ki see why now that i've watched the video. >> he has a good sense of humor. the other guys had a joke or two waiting for him once he did make it back safely.
>> you're going to have to do more to clean that wet suit. >> can you blame him? yes, he is going to have to take that suit to the cleaners. no doubt about that as we give you another look at the clip. this happened saturday. right away sean posted it on youtube where it almost has a million views already. we suggest you give our website lateal love. we post id it there for you. logon to nbcbayarea.com. >> i love it. the guys on the boat are laughing laughing at these guys. >> too close for my blood. 6:17. christina loren is back, much safer back there in the weather department. but still a lot going on. >> we have a lot going on that we're tracking for you minute by minute. you know why al the whales are coming toward the california coastline, the crill this year is abundant and i hear it's delicious out there. 6:17.
good thing crill is out there, we don't want them hunting for anything else. what a pretty start to the day. you can see those mid-level clouds, high clouds as well. we have showers coming down right here on our 280 cam just moments ago. this morning things are starting to clear up. we had rainfall pass through. starting to let up a little bit. a little lingering activity over the north end of san jose, in the north bay as well. santa rosa to napa. we have more on the way as we head throughout the next half hour, hour. these lines of thunderstorms are going to start to push onshore. we'll be tracking this for you all the way through 11:00. right back here at 11:00 a.m. with the latest for you. we have the potential for dry lightning strikes as well. isolated thunderstorms in the forecast. mainly in the mountains and the south bay mountains in particular as we head throughout the afternoon with a mix of sun and clouds. temperatures won't be that hot. yesterday felt like florida. really it was kind of nice for a summer afternoon. temperatures in the low 80s.

traffic tuesday. at walnut creek, not a problem as far as the speeds go. the green means it might be damp slick. the blue means there may be ponding or puddling that might happen for the hills off 680. no chp problems reported through the area. that's good news as well. as we move to the altamont pass, a good deal of rain. there may be puddles, but there's enough cars, enough traffic that they might have kicked it off the roadway. be careful of the off-ramps. if you're coming off freeway speeds, the earlier stall has cleared off grant line road. things dry out toward livermore and start to slow down a bit for vallecitos and toward the dublin interchange. this has held steady for almost a half hour. a smooth drive through the tri-valley here. no problems through sunol into the south bay. the green painted over the maps. the rain coming through, the south bay hit with rain recently and continuing. looking at slowing for north

"today in the bay's" marla tellez joins us live in the newsroom with new details on the investigation. laura? >> reporter: that runway reopened less than two hours ago
just before 5:00 a.m. our time. we have new video of the southwest plane slowly being hauled away to a hangar at laguardia very early this morning. laguardia closed for more than an hour yesterday. the plane spending the night on that runway where it made that hard landing yesterday afternoon. this exclusive video shows ther sparks and all as the nose gear fails as flight 345 attempted to make a smooth landing. that, of course, didn't happen. instead, the front end of that jet came crashing down. about 150 people were on board that plane that originated in nashville. officials say ten people were treated at the scene. another six were taken to local hospitals with minor injuries. the faa and now the ntsb are investigating here in the bay area. we're very familiar with the ntsb after the deadly asiana airlines plane crash at sfo. that was just 17 days ago. the latest story out of new york

we have the showers coming down over the past three hours. conditions certainly on the slick side this morning. we'll check on those roads with mike in just a moment. for today, though, highs work out like this, 81 in san jose, 64 in san francisco with the fog rolling right back in at about 3:00 p.m. 88 in livermore and 88 in fairfield as promised, traffic tuesday, let's get right over to mike inouye. >> good morning. it is traffic tuesday. surprisingly we're seeing lighter volume than we often see. it's the heaviest we've seen for this week. it's only tuesday of course it looks like a pretty typical pattern. the san mateo bridge, we show a smooth flow westbound. that added complication, the mist and the drizzle and the rain throughout the bay causing potential for slick roadways, especially in those off-ramps. this span is okay. we're watching for the problems. so far none there. it's on the east bay we have an issue right now. the maps will show you 880 southbound, the green, if you see that highlighted on the
maps, that's where the road weather index says you might have damp roadways. that turned to red, that segment from highway 92 toward whipple road. that's where a crash came in a few minutes ago, southbound 880 around whipple to union city. we have two lanes currently blocked. that's right by the target off-ramp there. a lot of folks know that. it's very popular. it's fast food for the morning as well as people stop to get breakfast. a lot of congestion there getting into fremont. as you travel into the tri-valley, a smooth drive for west 580. volume holding pretty light and steady out of the altamont pass. earlier a disabled vehicle cleared to the shoulder. that's where the blue is painted in. walnut creek shows a little puddling for 680. as far as our speed sensors go, close to the limit out of pleasant hill and into alamo. one more shot of the south bay where your northbound routes are starting to build gently,
especially for tuesday. this is a gentle commute right now. watch the slick roadways at the freeway off-ramps throughout 101 and into santa clara, back to you. a summer camp counselor in morgan hill is expected to return to court where he could enter a plea on lewdness and child pornography charges. 20-year-old nicholas larminay was arrested earlier this month. a 6-year-old girl told her parents something happened at the ymca paradise valley child care center where he worked. investigators san jose they also found child pornography on his cell phone including images of a 17-year-old girl. a new mexico murder suspect who fled to san francisco becoming very popular and made a living playing saxophone at a b.a.r.t. station now heading to prison for killing his ex-wife more than 25 years ago. ronald brewing ton was best known at the embarcadero station at the jazz man, he was arrested
last year by albuquerque police, wanted in the shooting death of his ex-wife in new mexico. this happened way back in 1987. then just two weeks ago brewington pleaded guilty to second degree murder and was sentenced to 16 years in prison. a followup to a story we first told you about this weekend. the u.s. coast guard says the sailboat skipper who led them on a slow-speed chase in the san francisco bay was making false distress calls. investigators say a coast guard boat was patrolling near sausalito sunday afternoon when it picked up a distress call on the radio. they tracked that call to david mccormick's boat and requested to board. but mccormick refused and sailed off. the coast guard eventually boarded the boat and arrested mccormick after he allegedly lunged at an officer. he's now in jail charged with assaulting a federal officer. time is 6:36. still ahead, backlash against ryan braun. we'll bring you the fallout from
major league baseball decision to suspend one of its biggest stars and we'll also let you know how betting on braun's side of the story should cost another star athlete some big-time cash if we can take his word for it. it starts with something little, like taking a first step. and then another. and another. and if you do it. and your friends do it. and their friends do it... soon we'll be walking our way to awareness, support and an end to alzheimer's disease. and that? that would be big. grab your friends and family and start a team today. register at alz.org
the league informed players they will all be required to submit blood samples during training camp. the samples will be used to create a benchmark for testing for human growth hormone. the players union has declined to comment. major league baseball has suspended former mvp ryan braun of the milwaukee brewers for the rest of this season, and that will be without pay. braun was linked to the florida drug company that allegedly supplied players with performance-enhancing drugs. in a statement released by the mlb he said he had made some mistakes and he will now accept the consequences. just last season brawn actually avoided suspension after a positive drug test because his sample was incorrectly handled. that led the packers aaron rodgers to come to braun's defense on twitter. when he asked if he really believed braun did not use peds rodgers tweeted, yeah, i put my salary next year on it. that salary is worth about $4.5
million this gear. 9ers fans may remember last year rodgers made a bet with r&b group boys 2 men before green bay's game in san francisco. he promised to wear a 9ers jersey for a week in the packers lost. he didn't. >> if you make a bet and lose, you have to pay the piper. coming up, an update to breaking news for you. a baby sadly found dead inside a home in san jose. we'll tell you about the details on this place investigation coming up next. campbell cyclists run down by a runaway driver. what they say that driver did to disguise their identity seconds after impact. as the new day begins in san jose, taking a live look, what a beautiful start. san bruno, mostly cloudy conditions. we've got showers. we've got fog and we have thunderstorms, tracking it all for you in three minutes with

extravaganza continues this morning, and more anticipation over exactly when the baby boy will leave the hospital with his parents. right now we want to give you a live look outside st. mary's hospital london where prince william and duchess katherine are waking up as new parents. although the new parents didn't get aa lot of sleep overnight. you can see live there waiting for the new family to make their first public appearance and we're still waiting on a new name for the baby boy. we do understand catherine's hair dresser has arrived at the hospital. good news, so she's getting her hair done, probably looking. meantime celebrations in full swing all over london. yes. that's how they do it over there. when you have a baby boy in the royal family, got to go big. earlier this morning, the gun
salute is paying tribute to the royal baby at london's green park and over at the tower of london. ear plugs not included. >> exactly. in the meantime several landmarks decked out in blue for the royal birth. niagara falls illuminated in blue overnight, a message announcing "it's a boy" announced around the top of the bt tower in london and throngs of people celebrated at the gates of buckingham palace well into the morning. >> it is quite the spectacle.
