6:03 pm
housing like crazy. i found out today there are 40,000 planning commission applications for more housing in san francisco in the coming months. not all that's going to get built. but a lot of it will for sure. >> thank you, ken bastida. breaking news out of san francisco. police still on the scene where a city worker was involved in a deadly hit-and-run at a park. the crime scene tape is wrapped around a tree where a mother was lying with her child on the ground every on the grass and run over -- on the grass and run over by a maintenance pickup truck. the driver of the struck in custody. it happened in holly park circle near highland avenue after 2:00 this afternoon. the child was not hurt. linda yee is live where witnesses tell her that they tried to save that woman. linda. >> reporter: a lot of heroic gestures out here, allen, you're correct. it was a horrifying scene. it was a park full of witnesses. it happened right behind me. you see that hillside where the tree is. in fact, that's what witnesses told me that a woman with a toddler and a dog, they were lying on the grass under that
6:04 pm
tree on the hill. you can still see some of the blankets there. well, the witness told me he was walking on the path when he saw a park maintenance truck coming towards him. the truck driver apparently just drove off the path and right on the grass and towards the woman and child. the witness said he yelled at the driver to stop. the park worker kept going and ran over the woman. the child was unhurt. the witnesses told me that the driver got on to the street and just kept going. one of the witnesses said he got into his car, tried to chase him down, but lost him. police did catch up with him at a nearby playground. >> he did leave the scene. the description of the vehicle was put out to officers in the area so he was stopped in the area. >> reporter: the park worker was detained and is still being questioned at this hour. many park-goers tended to that injured woman. in fact one witness said one of those ones attending to her was a registered nurse tried to apply cpr. she was taken to general hospital where the fire department and police confirmed
6:05 pm
that she died. and we have now just learned that the woman that was the mother of the child, the child is now with relatives at the hospital and the family, i'm told, allen, they are getting grief counseling. >> i'm sure. i hope so. all right. linda, thank you. well, bay area school districts are adopting a new strategy to prepare for a shooter on campus, duck and cover is out. kpix 5's ryan takeo says the new motto is run, hide, fight. >> reporter: sometimes tragedy leads to change. now months after sandy hook, some bay area school districts are rethinking active shooter situations. fema already has a plan to address active shooter situations in the workplace. and now what's good training for adults is being recommended to schoolchildren. >> there are three things you could do that make a difference. run, hide, fight. [ dramatic music ] >> reporter: run, hide and fight is similar to another
6:06 pm
privately run school plan, alert, lockdown, inform, counter and evacuate. >> the aspects of alice that we have not ado you want is the counter such as having students throw books at the intruder. >> reporter: if students were to confront an active shooter they are taught to use books or pens to distract or shut down. students should have more options. there are several bay area school districts that have used the training. >> but if you can't run and hide, what are you going to do then? you need to empower these kids. >> reporter: nicole is a mother of three. while no one likes to think of the worst-case scenario, she is glad someone is thinking ahead. >> you know, it's scary to think that we have to bring this up and think about how our kids are going to be safe. i don't like to think about it but i'm glad people are talking about it. >> reporter: in castro valley, ryan takeo, kpix 5.

6:08 pm
full but when it comes to google's gmail, the question is, who else is reading it? >> we shouldn't have to worry about what we put in our emails. it's personal. we should be able to say whatever we want and not worry people are reading it and receiving things we don't want. >> reporter: that question of privacy is at the heart of a class action lawsuit filed in san jose. google attorneys say the company's long-standing practice of electronically scanning the contents of people's gmail to personalize advertisements is legal and they are seeking to have the suit dismissed. >> we have made a lot of allegations detailed in the complaint. >> reporter: but attorneys for the plaintiffs contended in open court today that email contents should be just as protected as telephone calls and that google is violating california privacy and wiretapping laws. >> the terms of service and the privacy policy need to be more clear that the other statements that are made by google need to be more clear and in some cases reassert that they don't live up to the standards that it
6:09 pm
requires. >> reporter: the electronic communications privacy act. google contends no one is reading your emails but they are scanned to pick out keywords so if you email someone that you just bought a house google might send you furniture ads. postings on social media and even google plus are criticizing the practice and some gmail users say it might be enough to close their accounts. >> i might have to switch if they are going to do that. gmail is allowing them to do that, i'm going to switch. >> it's a violation of privacy. >> reporter: there was no ruling today. the federal judge heard two hours of arguments and will make a ruling in the next couple of weeks as to whether or not to dismiss or to let the trial go ahead in this case. reporting live in san jose, len ramirez, kpix 5. >> the lawsuit notes google even scans messages sent to active email users and nonemail users to never agreed to company terms

6:15 pm
between two teams that seem very well prepared and, you know, we don't know i'm sure, you know, they don't either and it's going to a, you know, a great contest. >> the teams won't start on equal waters. shall we say? the first race is saturday. earlier this week a jury docked two points from team oracle for that cheating scandal. so in order for that team to defend its title they have to win 11 races instead of 9 in the best of 17. it seems like we were counting down the days to a looming bart strike and it's already that time again. we are just a month away from the next bart strike deadline, october 10 the date we need to look at when the cooling-off period ends. and today, we got a fresh look at talks that seemed to be at a standstill. bart today asked that unions allow workers to vote on their latest contract proposal a 10% increase. the unions fired right back and

astronauts on apollo 17. >> the raising up of dust from the lunar surface from the interaction of the sun, the solar radiation as it impacts the dust, we think that might have been the cause. >> reporter: there's some cool new technology being used on this mission. scientists on earth will receive information from lahti by laser beam 1,000 times faster than the old radiowaves. the mission is also part of the new nasa exploring space with reusable designs on a relative shoestring budget. $280million. >> morsiens, more bang for the buck than doing it the old- fashioned way where each mission was a one-off kind of design. >> reporter: latti's 100 day mission will end with a crash- landing on the moon in effect becoming moon dust itself. >> so while it's a little sad knowing it's coming to an end it will be awesome knowing it did what it was supposed to have done. >> and nasa wants to do this mission in now before they send more spacecraft up to the moon

6:19 pm
days we have had in concord? 97 times! san francisco likely will have its first 80-degree day coming up this weekend. which means it's going to be toasty for the football game. the 9ers are home, last home opener at candlestick. look at the temperatures. 77 degrees for kickoff coming up on sunday as we host the green bay packers. here's why things are changing. low pressure called it the heat deflector shield it's moving inland. it's now going to move farther away from us giving us copious amounts of rainfall. seattle up to 3" of rain, rare in september. as that moves out that's going to allow a big area of high pressure over the desert southwest just a nudge back in our direction. but it's so strong and so big that as soon as is it gets to exert its influence on us, that begins tomorrow and will go through the top of next week. as long as this is close to us we'll be 10 to 15 degrees above average. starts tomorrow. it starts with a whimper and gets going over the weekend. concord 93 not too uncommon. 7 degrees above average.
