boys were walking to marina middle school. a big truck had stopped at the intersection while the boys walked on the crosswalk. and that's when the woman's suv drove alongside of the truck and then slammed into the two boys. this intersection is notoriously dangerous. no stop signs. people have to just watch for people in the crosswalk. the city planned safety upgrades but so far it's remained dangerous. >> we're looking at sewer upgrades, repaving as well as putting in speed humps and reducing a lane of traffic to make it safer and reduce speeds. >> the driver in yesterday's crash kirsten anderek is a former debutante, 30 years old. she was a family friend of the late robin williams, according to some reports. there are going to be counselors this morning at hand at the boy's marina middle school. >> anne, when is work expected to begin to make that intersection safer? >> reporter: they can only say
soon at this point. but one interesting note, we looked at some old versions of the city's website and it actually said the work here was supposed to be finished by september 2015 which was of course a couple of months ago so that's at odds from what the city is telling us that there were no delays in the project. live in san francisco, anne makevoc, kpix 5. san jose police are looking for this woman suspected of robbing three banks in just two days. the woman's been dressed in yoga pants, hoodies and sunglasses. she has been able to pull off the heist, investigators say, because of her ordinary appearance. >> she is able to walk in, pass a note, obtain the money and walk out without being detected. >> police say the note suggests the robber is armed but no gun has been seen. the latest robbery was yesterday at a chase bank on almaden expressway. tuesday the bank of the west at cambrian park plaza was hit as was a u.s. bank inside the nob

information is needed. either forensic evidence, bomb residue or bomb fragments or conversations among isis members that are specific enough to give you confidence that they were actually in on the plot. >> reporter: isis has insisted it did cause the crash releasing an audiotape wednesday daring investigators to prove otherwise. out of an abundance of caution there are no flights going to the egyptian resort stranding passengers. jonathan vigliotti kpix 5. five people are recovering from stab wounds after an attack on a campus at uc-merced yesterday morning. campus police shot and killed the attacker. students got alerts about the multiple stabbings just before 8 a.m. merced county sheriff says suspect was a student who did live on campus. the attack started inside a second floor classroom. the man who was doing construction outside heard people screaming and that's when he went inside to try to help.

hills. today her stops include saint helena where ticket prices start at $1,000. $2,700 if you want a photo. it turns out many of the patriotic displays we see at pro sporting events are funded by tax dollars and the teams profit from them. a new congressional report calls it paid patriotism. one example the oakland raiders took more than $200,000 in 2012 all in exchange for 4 soldiers and their guests. they got to stand in the tunnels. the raiders took to the field. the members also performed a color guard ceremony in each home game. a new defense spending bill includes language that would ban the practice. it's hard to figure especially when you look at the incomes of some of these professional sports. it -- it -- it's something that we don't understand and are glad it will stop. >> as for the 49ers the california national guard paid to hold conferences and events at team facilities in santa

champion warriors who came out on top. i think roberta got home about midnight last night. final score -- actually watched it at home -- 112-108. the warriors and toronto are the only nba teams undefeated. how are you doing? >> it's hard to say this early in the season only four games in that this is a big game but this was a big game! >> of course. >> if you were watching it on television for the first time ever did i really believe it was "roar-acle." when you're there it is "roar- acle." i had to turn it down it was so loud at home and intense and curry had a spectacular game again with 30 points, 21, i think, in the last quarter. clear skies, it is frigid out there. temperatures in the upper 30s in livermore. it is 38 degrees in santa rosa. it's in the mid-40s in san jose. you require a jacket heading out. we have crystal clear skies but we'll be noting increasing high clouds today. less wind than yesterday. and then the next rain we are
moving it up a bit now into sunday. right now, we are looking at high pressure still building in with the passage of that area of low pressure so we have that pressure gradient. and because of the rotation of the wind mass around the core of the center of the high pressure, we have that northerly and northwesterly wind that's what's bringing in that cooler air mass. but meanwhile, area of low pressure well to the north is right now poised to move in sunday and monday like the same timing as this past week's storm, just not as intense. it looks like we are counting on at least .25" of rain throughout most of the bay area. futurecast, lunchtime partly cloudy skies. then the clouds begin to swipe out of the bay area. check this out. it's currently 18 degrees on the south shore. 14 degrees in truckee going up to 45 degrees. mid-60s today a daytime high in monterey bay. there's your sun-up and sundown. and in between today 60s from the beaches through the bay into our inland areas. we'll have sunshine on saturday and sunday.

just yet. but the city of san jose is drafting a development agreement with apple that would provide a broad framework for a future project. >> we think it would be a great match. we have long considered ourselves the capital of silicon valley. >> reporter: standing in some of that land that we're talking about right off the 101 across from mineta san jose airport, the city says it's anxious to find out what's next for apple. we know that the planning commission will take a look at that draft agreement very soon. in san jose, betty yu, kpix 5. two women in tokyo made history today. they are the first same-sex couple to have their relationship recognized by a local government. it's not a marriage but an official certificate.
