the latest in laguna beach where a model s ran into a police officer's car that was parked. that officer was not inside at the time. the driver of the tesla walked away with minor injuries. but back in march, an apple engineer was killed when his model s crashed into a barrier on 101 in mountain view. in utah another crash involving a tesla on autopilot. that woman was looking at her phone. the company said: it doesn't make the car impervious to all accidents. federal investigators are looking into that crash in mountain view. it's unclear if the ftc or the dmv will take up the complaints but later on today in los angeles there will be a press conference to announce that they are filing a complaint with the dmv. reporting here in fremont, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5 . presidentrumhit in nashvill yesterday and touched on a few hot button issues and blamed

>> bao! >> they are supposed to show up to court! there's only one problem they never show up. >> boo! >> reporter: president trump is also blaming democrats for the reason there's been a spike in children entering the u.s. illegally. over the weekend he tweeted that pressure needed to be put on the democrats to end a horrible law that separates children from their parents once they cross the border. homeland security ordered the prosecution of anyone caught crossing the border illegally. once in custody they are separated from any children with them because minors can't be held in adult jails. several cities and counties are weighing in on a federal lawsuit against california over its sanctuary policies. ahead of the june 5th primary, brad jones a political science professor at uc-davis tells the "sacramento bee" that it might be a bad idea for republican candidates to focus on this issue. he warns that that strategy could backfire. at least 40 city councils and 10 county boards of supervisors have expressed disapproval for the state's

system that serves the entire bay area. there is a push now to drain the hetch hetchy river and it is going to the court of appeals --or the reservoir, rather, and it is going to the court of appeals this morning. the appeal driven by a group of environmentalists who have been fighting for years to drain the reservoir, which is is in the yosemite national park. for park. it is a 117-billion gallon reservoir that they want to restore to a valley. >> it was designed in the 19th century that's damaging to the environment. >> reporter: it is the main water source for some 2.5 million bay area residents in san francisco, san mateo, santa clara and alameda counties. coming up with an alternative to that water source wouldn't be cheap.
estimates have it costing about $10 billion when it comes to a new water source and storage. >> this has been a long- standing rift. it's been a subject of several court battles and a ballot measure in 2012 which voters overwhelmingly rejected. the city of san francisco owns this system and they are going to continue to vehemently fight this battle in court. back to you. time now 6:10. the major funding gap muni is facing as it looks to improve conditions for bikers and pedestrians. >> and the major backup that we are tracking all due to an earlier crash involving a big rig plus another crash in that same area. we'll have all the details and those travel times coming up. >> and noticing that marine layer getting thicken and thicker by the minute. we are also seeing those west winds really starting to pick up and a cooldown in our temperatures. we have a lot coming up in your weather forecast. >> plus in our tech report,

right before that transition for folks trying to get onto 580 so we have very little time to get to the merge the rit laneand make your way to the nnector ramp. this is going to impact your ride. it's about 22 minutes southbound between 24 and 580. that's adding on some time and it's likely to get worse depending on the ride. consider an alternate. 880 is starting to see those slowdowns, as well. this is just north of alcosta boulevard. just crawling along making their approach towards the scene. we had another crash in our area. it's not blocking lanes but it's over in the center divide. certainly not helping the matter.

us live from outside tesla's manufacturing plant in fremont. jessica. >> reporter: kenny, michelle, two consumer advocacy groups want the ftc and the dmv to crack down on tesla. they say tesla's advertising is deceptive because they say the company makes it seem as if the autopilot feature is safer than it is. they say statements from elon the vehies are capable of self-driving. now, tesla manuals say that drivers must keep their nd on the wheels and maintain control of the car even in autopilot mode. this complaint comes as tesla has been under scrutiny following a series of autopilot crashes. the latest in laguna beach where a model s ran into a police officer's car that was parked. the officer was not inside at the time. the driver of the tesla walked away with minor injuries. in march an apple engineer was killed when his model s crashed into a barrier on 101 in mountain view. the company had this to say: "tesla has always been clear that autopilot doesn't make the car impervious to all accidents."
federal investigators are looking into the mountain view crash. it's unclear if the ftc will investigate those advertising claims but today those two groups will be in los angeles. they say this week they are filing that complaint with the dmv. reporting live here in fremont, i'm jessica flores, kpix 5 we'll get another check of traffic and weather. jaclyn is tracking that massive build-up on 680 because of a fuel spill. >> that's right. this has been going on -- this accident happened just before 2:15 a.m. two right lanes are now closed. we are showing some progress but still big delays. this is southbound 680 approaching 580 just before that dublin-pleasanton interchange so a lot of folks having to move to the left
lanes and get back to the right lanes to get onto 580 if that's what they are trying to do. you're going to need to give yourself extra time. chp hasn't given us a time of re-opening of the remaining two lanes. this is definitely causing a big backup. we can see traffic backed up beyond bollinger canyon at this point. if you you typically travel this route southbound 680 and you are planning on getting onto westbound 580, do yourself a favor. you can always take crow canyon and that will connect you down into castro valley. it may be a little bit longer of a route but you won't be just sitting still or at a crawl along southbound 680. right now our travel times in the red, about 22 minutes from highway 24 down towards 580 there. but that time continues to climb so again, if you know someone who travels this route give them a call let them know to avoid it. this is a live look just north of alcosta boulevard and this is the southbound direction and you see it slowly coming to a cross as they are approaching the scene of that
earlier crash. we also had another crash in that same area. that's been cleared over to the center divide. but definitely, not a good spot for drivers on 680 this morning. further south, just 580 there down to 84 we are in the yellow starting to show the usual crowds developing. 880 a lot of folks heading over to that freeway now in the yellow about. it's the kind of morning where the wind is pushing the cloud coverage in and out of those low-lying valleys and around the bay. moments ago you could barely see the golden gate bridge. now it's gone again. palace of fine arts there at the bottom of your screen. so we are starting to see those winds really push the clouds around. clouds hanging over berkeley,

which owns the hetch hetchy reservoir, is fighting against this. it's already gone through several lawsuits and an appeal to voters. a ballot measure in 2012, voters voted it down. so we'll see what the court of appeals says. they are hearing it this morning in fresno. anne makevoc, kpix 5. the mandatory evacuations under way right now after a landslide threatens to break open a major dam in north carolina. >> plus, a new emergency button uber is adding to its app and how it works. >> and the stock market just opened up. let's check it. radio's financial reporter jason brooks. right now: thousands of peopl coming up an update from kcbs radio's financial reporter jason brooks.
