blood limit 1 upon 0, sarah hart had a toxic level of antihistamine in her system. the pathologist said three of the children had high levels of antihistamine in their system, considered to be well above the therapeutic level. the chp officer said he was puzzled over the absence of tires or skid marks at the site of the crash. he called it unusual to explain why the car went down the cliff. we expect to have more findings, they will be presented to jurors and it will be up to those jurors to make a final decision. reporting live for today in the bay? such a tragedy there. thank you very much. new overnight, investigators talking about the cause of last month's ethiopian crash. they say everything was normal.

page to challenge that plan. >> it's la ready to tackle homelessness, the battle over hope village in san jose. crews recently cleared the tent city even though homeless advocates believed it was working. in this case, the faa red flagged it because it was too close to sjc. city and county leaders still hope to come one a solution, but at this point, hopes are fading for many. 5:36 right now. the as bitten by a wobbly pull pen last night. >> the as have led boston 3-0 before they muntd rally. the game tied in the 9th inning, mooky best off the 3rd base bat. it popped up into left field. two runs scored. the red sox won the game 6-3. today's series finale gets under way a little after noon. and in a little more than 24 hours, giants fans will celebrate the team's home opener
at oracle park. between now and then they have to contemplate what might have been. last night, the giants had the lead in the 7th inning, but the dodgers david frees hit a two-run double. the bats went silent after that giants fans, we want you to wake up with us today and tomorrow morning, we have live coverage from the stadium starting at 4:30 for you. >> it should be a lot of fun. the rain is factor there. we were going to go like for our mid-day show. it could probably be not a rainout for the game. >> kari has been following all of that for us. kari, so what are we expecting? oh, mike. >> we're expecting kari to have a lower voice right now. i am doing a little kari duty. i show you the mist and the drizzle at the bay bridge, what

copies. he promised in february we would see them quote soon, but he never released them. he didn't release them the last time he ran for president. both the "new york times" and "the washington post" report the mueller report was for more troubling for president trump tan mr. barr indicated. there is a bat until congress to see that whole report. it looks like a deal with china is very close over trade. we will talk more about that as we talk business at 6:15. it's been a weird week in healthcare. we will talk more about that tomorrow. the president promised the healthcare will be front and center. that's an issue democrats want to run on. the president said the republican's plan, which does not yet exist will be on display as a much lesser expensive alternative to obamacare.
