dont wanna one coming up on the old candlestick exit. there's an overturned truck. look at all this slow traffic coming in from south san francisco all the way up into the city. here is a live picture of that truck there, and you can see that. well there you go. chip. this truck is on its side. and that's why that right line is taken away. so it is a it looks like no injuries. however that truck is still there. they have to write it before they can move it, and that's why the traffic is so slow. we'll have another update in just a few minutes. now at 702. let's get right back to the headlines in the news this morning police and mountain view investigating the drowning death of a nine year old boy in a swimming pool. it happened yesterday afternoon at an apartment complex near el camino real not far from mariano castro elementary. someone found little boy unresponsive in the pool. and while the authorities were rushing to the scene, someone gave him cpr, but the child later died at a nearby hospital and investigation is underway
into what happened. and along the sacramento river. the bodies of three bay area man have been recovered. they died trying to rescue a child from the river on sunday, the three men were swept away by the river current near the three miles slough bridge and highway 1 60. now the child eventually was pulled to safety . search for those men lasted several days until all three of them were found tuesday night. the victims, all from oakland, were identified as edwin rivas, edwin perez and danilo solorzano. time now is 73 prices at the gas pump are finally starting to go down just a bit. the average price here in california $6.19 a gallon ktvu amanda king town alive in san ramon here with what energy experts say we should expect as we look ahead, amanda. i've seen gas for under $6 in some spots. i have to. it is very exciting. you haven't seen very many of those gas stations. but there
are a few here in san ramon. not quite under $6, though. we're seeing 6 41 here. that's about 20, cents higher than the state average as you mentioned gaza, according to triple a that current average for the state of california. 6 19 now compare that to 6 22 yesterday and that in close to 6 30 a week ago, almost 6 40 a month ago. that's almost 20 cent drop in just the last month. right now. the national average 4 75. that's 17 cents lower a month ago. crude oil is trading under $100 this morning. that's down about 20% from early june. on tuesday, the price of crude oil dropped 9% the largest daily percentage drop we've seen since march. we're also seeing a decline in trading prices for natural gas, gasoline and heating oil. of course, it's great to see these prices come down, but we spoke
to a local energy expert who says it's most likely due to a tough economic outlook across the country and around the world , he says, mounting fears about a global recession. is what's affecting these oil prices. overall slower economy means people drive less people fly last. uh there's less demand for oil to heat and so forth and other mostly in other parts of the world. um and the reduction in demand causes a big drop in prices. bornstein says. with so much uncertainty, there is no way to tell if prices will continue to drop. but in california, he says he doesn't expect to see the average get under $6. he says most economists believe a recession is likely. now his advice. is to take advantage of these lower prices that we're seeing. he also says to shop around, you know, you could see a lower price just up the street, so
maybe take a drive and see where you see those lower prices go to that gas station that has the lower price because he says that will encourage those gas stations that have the higher prices to maybe lower their prices as well. so shop around a little drive around, see what you can see and just take advantage of these lower prices that we are seeing right now live in san ramon, amanda quintana ktvu fax tunis, amanda. thank you. time is 706 relatives and friends of a man injured during a sideshow in vallejo this past weekend or praying he'll survive. 19 year old tyler ingersoll was one of the hundreds of people who gathered near six flags for a sideshow that attracted some 200 drivers last weekend. he was hit by one of the cars and has been hospitalist since sunday night. he's being treated for traumatic brain injuries. he's had three surgeries. already his family and girlfriend are warning everyone about how dangerous it can be just to watch a sideshow. i hate you right now for doing this to me and my family. but i
know we shouldn't have been there either, because things like this happen. watch out for your kids. don't let this go on until you kids out there. they think it's fun in it. you guys think it's okay? you could lose your life just by watching it. anger sells family says doctors still can't tell them if he will survive. the driver who hit ingersoll has not been found. time is now 707. the family from tonga still waiting to make funeral arrangements for a relative who was killed last month in oakland when a car being chased by police after a sideshow crashed into him. relatives of low low saha ca. i say he was not involved in the sideshow or the police chase two sundays ago on international boulevard. the police chase ended when the driver of the car that was being chased crashed into parked cars and motorcycles and one of the motorcycles flew through the air landed on top of so ho chi. and killed him.
family says. sometime this week, the alameda county coroner will release his body to them. the family would decide when the funeral will be held. they're planning a public ceremony for him, saying that's what he would have wanted. well, some people are still evacuated this morning in the sierra foothills as firefighters continue to battle the electoral fire. some evacuation orders have been lifted for people and amador county, but other evacuation orders continue in nearby calipari's counted, the fire has already burned more than 4100 acres. along highway 49 near the city of jackson, and it's now 40% contained efforts to set backfires to keep the flames from spreading seemed to be working. the ultimate objective of firing operations is to starve the fire fuel before it has a chance to actually reach our lines. so if something does decide to come out of the canyon, it's got a nice buffer to slow it down and stop it. so far, no homes have been destroyed and no injuries have been reported. fire could have a
very direct impact on us here in the bay area, fire, debris and ash could contaminate the river that flows into east bay muds party reservoir. that could create water quality issues for the nearly 1.5 million customers who rely on that water for their homes and businesses. we are keeping an eye on the water quality. and so once the fire clears, we'll be doing an assessment and will be working with blm, the bureau of land management to check the soil to check the water quality and treat the water accordingly. the fire is also threatening some of pg and east critical facilities , including 11, major distribution and transmission poles, as well as hydro electric generation substation and powerhouse facilities. pg and e says it can divert power away from the fire area to keep the rest of the state powered up even if those systems are damaged. of course, we'll keep you up to date on the wildfires burning in california here on morning zone two and we have a page on our website dedicated to bringing you the latest information. anytime i just had

wheels to tow it away. so it's going to be a while. if you're driving up the peninsula, you might want to think about using 2 80 through daly right at the d candlestick exit, 7 11. let's go back to the desk. this is now one of the respiratory viruses that we're going to contend with. year in and year out. covid omicron sub variant quickly spreading around the country coming up with health experts say about the dominant strain as they figure out a better way of living with the virus and as we continue to learn more about the illinois parade shooting suspect we'll show you how people in highland park are really coming together to help a little boy whose parents

power until his conservative party names a new prime minister , but critics won him out as soon as possible. boris johnson's time as prime minister was marred by the way. he handled the coronavirus pandemic and by several ethics scandals, the man charged with the illinois parade shooting on the fourth of july, is due back in court in three weeks. robert creamer's currently facing seven counts of first degree murder, he appeared in a zoom court hearing on wednesday, was ordered to be held without bail . investigators say you fired more than 70 rounds into a crowd of people at a july 4th parade in highland park, illinois, just north of chicago. then drove north to neighboring wisconsin, where he considered committing a second holiday celebration attack. he did see a celebration that was occurring in madison, and he seriously contemplated using the fire army and his vehicle to commit another shooting. they could have been further tragedy, and that's why when an event like this happens all of law enforcement throughout the area and other
communities have to be on alert. police say they're not sure why he decided to return to illinois , where he was spotted and arrested. prosecutors said they plan to file more charges, including attempted murder. authorities say 21 year old cremo will likely spend the rest of his life in prison. the community of highland park, illinois, is rallying around a toddler who was found alone covered in blood in the chaotic aftermath of monday's mass shooting, both of two year old aided mccarthy's parents were killed at the parade. a stranger took the little boy to a police station. his grandfather says the family will take care of him. now a go fund me account that was set up for aidan has raised more than $2.8 million so far is now 7 17. well it's getting easier to get around lake tahoe now that the free shuttle system is expanding for residents and for visitors. the summer micro transit system has been serving people who need to get between the incline village area and olympic valley. now

60 san jose at 61 degrees. here's what you need to know today, and it will be a terrific thursday. it will it will turn part. the cloudy or partly sunny depends on how you want to look at it otherwise clouds line up at the coast, mild temperatures and inland areas in the low eighties of above normal in the san jose area, well, right around cupertino and campbell otherwise, 67 degrees in san francisco and 82 santa rosa. we have the full forecast, and that's still coming up in a matter of minutes. but right now hey, sal, what's it looking like on the roads at this hour? it's going to be a little slower, berta coming off westbound 5 80 pardon me this morning. on the ultimate past and also getting into the main part of livermore . because of an earlier crash. things are getting better, though. finally in that area. the bay bridge has improved quite a bit. if you're trying to get to san francisco on the peninsula, we still have that truck that was at one point overturned on north dont wanna one near the candlestick exit.
you can still see the truck is there it's been righted now and still blocking the right lane. they have to now that it's on its wheels. they have to figure out how to tow it away. it's been badly damaged, but if you're driving into san francisco. probably the best bet is to use to 80 instead. prices at the gas pump are finally beginning to go down. just a little. amanda quintana is in san ramon to tell us what one energy expert says we can expect, amanda yes, well, it is definitely a welcome sight for a lot of us to see these gas prices going down. i know i've seen a few under $6. but here in san ramon, not under $6 at 6 41 here across the street. that's more than 20, cents higher than the state average. according to triple a, the current average for a gallon of regular gas in california. is about 6 19. now compare that to 6 22 average yesterday close to 6 30 a week ago and almost 6 40 a month ago.
that's almost 20 cent drop in the last month. right now, the national average is $4.75. that's 17 cents. lower than a month ago. crude oil is trading under $100 this morning. that's down about 20% from early june. on tuesday, the price of crude oil dropped 9% the largest daily percentage drop since march. we're also seeing a decline in trading prices for natural gas, gasoline and heating oil. of course, it is great to see these prices come down. but we spoke to a local energy expert who says it's most likely due to a tough economic outlook across the country and around the world , he says, mounting fears about a global recession is what's affecting the oil prices. overall slower economy means people drive less people fly last. uh there's less demand for oil to heat and so forth and other mostly in other parts of
the world. um and the reduction in demand causes a big drop in prices. borenstein says. with so much uncertainty, there's really no way to tell if prices will continue to drop. but in california he doesn't expect to see the average get under $6, he says. most believe a recession is likely. now his advice is to take advantage of this take advantage of those lower prices you are seeing, he says. you'll likely see prices differ just on one street. if you drive up and down that street, you might find a lower one. i know some people like to stick to their gas stations, but drive around see what kind of deals you can get, he says. by going to those gas stations with the lower prices, maybe it'll get some of those gas stations with the higher prices to lower their prices. as well. and then we will see if these prices continue to go down. i know they're not low low, but they are lower than we've been experiencing. so that is some

supreme court decision that overturned roe v. wade yesterday. the site has drawn protests from all sides of the debate since the court decision was announced last month. including a man who says he's been protesting there once a week for the past 18 years. i have to find another ministry to do. but back, the real ministry is to change society. this place exists because of the darkness of our society. lack of love for life, and i heard about what was going on down here really felt important to be part of it. silence is complicity. the clinic director say it's been difficult to stay open this long they've had to bring in doctors from other states to perform abortions because no mississippi doctors would work there. time now is 8 13 to campaign to include the right to abortion in california constitution begins this week coalition of reproductive healthcare, human rights and justice groups are endorsing prop. one the campaign launched his website twitter account facebook page and instagram account yesterday. in
november, voters will be asked to decide if the state's constitution should include an amendment that would guarantee a right to abortion and protect access to birth control. california lawmakers are working to protect same sex marriage in our state. many of the lgbtq plus community feared their rights are now in question. following that recent supreme court reversal of roe v. wade there is a special focus on california's proposition eight. the 2000 and eight voter approved ban on same sex marriage are u. s. district court judge struck down prop. eight in 2010, but the text of the proposition is still part of the state constitution. let's talk more about this by welcoming the chair of the lgbt q caucus, silicon valley assemblyman evan low two mornings onto thanks for being with us. good morning. good morning. some people do predict that the same justices who recently overturned roe will reverse the supreme court ruling that allowed same sex marriage. how real to you is the threat that marriage equality will be reversed here in california and the united states. but it's very
good question. it's not so much about the reversal. but the unfortunate truth, which is proposition eight, which again eliminated the rights of same sex couples to marry in california, and, fortunately is long in the land. it is in our constitution. and so what is important is that we see that with this current supreme court to enshrine the rights of all californians is equally important as well. of course, we recognized the importance of supporting women's rights in this critical time, and so over the next few months and two years, we will be, of course, having conversations about ensuring states' rights. exactly that the california leads with love, diversity and inclusion. there is agreement that for a ballot measure that does aimed to formally removed property from our constitution. let's talk about that effort, the money it will take the timing of the effort as well. it is unfortunate that we actually
have to revisit this conversation. i was around in my twenties during proposition eight back in 2000 and eight and it's such a dark. past of our california history, in which californians rights were eliminated. and so what is. ah stark reality is that given the current makeup of this, the united states supreme court we, unfortunately having to have a conversation about spending more time. millions of dollars on a ballot in which we know that california in the majority of california's the majority of americans understand and recognize that love between two individuals should be recognized , and it's frankly a thing of the past. this is so passe. so how is it that we are in this mode? in this current climate? it's an unfortunate reality, but one that i know that californians are up for that challenge. when you think back to 2000 and eight to where we are today, um to some people
feel like it was a long time ago to others. it feels like yesterday when you specifically talk about voters here in california, especially in the previous presidential election, in which president donald trump was elected nationwide. there were some surprises. are you concerned about those surprises again to californians in particular when you put this language about prop eight back on the ballot? of course, that is always a vulnerability, a potential harm that we could see. when you look at data driven key points on metrics on polling on the conversations on where democrats are conservatives independence where the electorate is the notion of love transcends partisanship. we know that to be true, but to your question. is there potential harm that this could actually be dangerous. of course, when anything goes to the ballot so much can be unknown, but i know that all of
californians we are ready and up for the challenge to be able to demonstrate. that we will lead with love and that we're going to come out in strength should this be on a statewide ballot. assemblyman evan low, thank you so much for joining us this morning. thank you much time now is 8 18. it's time for us to get out and take a look at the roads to see if you're still going to leave the house. i can show you some pictures here that will show you that the commute is very much getting into an end here the end phase as we get closer to the nine o'clock hour. the richmond bridge looks very good, and there have been no major issues at the bay bridge right now. that also looks good. it's been lighter than usual day there at the bay bridge. livermore had a lot of rough traffic this morning because of earlier issues. now it's kind of blended into some slowing generally between livermore and pleasant and highway four and 6 80 are still a little bit slow. san mateo bridge looks good, and some of the silicon valley commutes are looking very good. that's been a quiet commute here trying to get into that west
