killed her in 2015. he was never actually tried but could have received two life sentences if he was tried as an adult. as prosecutored hoped. since then state laws changed because gonzalez was 15 at the time. his case recently went to juvenile court. that is where he pleaded guilty earlier this month. it's possible he may be set free at the age of 25, although his sentence can be extended indefinitely every two years. a new shakeup in san francisco tied to the corruption scandal engulfing city hall. long time city attorney dennis herrera expected to step down to become the next head of the city's public utilities commission. he's been city attorney since 2001. yesterday mayor london breed nominated him to be general manager. herrera's office has been investigating corruption allegations since the public works head mohammad nuru and the

forecast coming up in a few minutes. >> if mitty is your tool, intersection mitty at lawrence expressway, closed from 280 past the scene of a deadly crash investigation, down toward bollinger, we're looking at that closure for the expressway, but the freeways are moving smoothly as we look at 101 through san jose, no problems here north of 280 and 680. >> thank you very much, kari and mike. it is 6:15 right now. checking a look at your futures as we get a check of business and tech together, they are somewhat flat this morning, after the s&p 500 closes at a record and we're talking about tesla this morning. shares were declining actually, the reporting the first quarter earnings and revenue beat wall street's forecast thanks to a ramp up in production in china and continued strong demand for electric cars in a more crowded market. the tesla's profits squeezed by higher supply chain costs and

6:18 am
>> and i'm sure millions will be watching. time to watch the traffic for us this morning, mike, what are things looking like out there? >> breaking news for the south bay, folks just joining us, this will be a problem, major expressways closed as we look at the map we'll get you located, on the border with cupertino officially in san jose and officially right near mitty high school so if that is where you're heading this morning, accessing or leaving the freeway, lawrence expressway is not your option south of 280. bollinger and moorpark are open to get you through the area. wolf and saratoga to the north and south are access points for 280 to or from. the rest of the south bay freeways move smoothly. sensors have changed for west 580 and hayward for south 880, typical pattern for the portions of the bay, slowing through concord where the arrow is subtle on the speed sensors but the travel times as you come
6:19 am
down for vasco show another five minutes added on for your drive out of brentwood, slowing the last couple of miles and no surprise more slowing through concord, so you can pick your route carefully toward the bay bridge with this backup holding light there, kari, not bad at all. >> and it's a nice sunrise, we're waking up to a clear sky but when you step outside you're like, okay, it's another chilly morning, very much like yesterday, where we're starting out with mid-30s in napa right now and dropped down to 35 degrees in morgan hill, most of us are feeling temperatures in the 40s, but it is still a cool start after the very strong cold front moved through over the weekend, but actually today, during the afternoon, it's going to be warmer. here is a live look at our live view in san jose and our start very nice and cool but look at highs reaching 76 degrees in concord today, burlingame reaching 65 degrees, while san jose will see temperatures reaching 71. as we go through the forecast,
6:20 am
we've seen storm systems developing out there in the pacific, but they're just not coming our way, because high pressure has blocked it, kept us dry and as it kind of waivers back and forth, it warms up our temperatures at times, and then cools it down as it changes the wind direction, but we've seen these high wind gusts picking up at times because of all of the dry conditions, and then we look at our reservoir levels. right now as we look at our four largest reservoirs, 69% of the historical average so the water levels have continued to drop especially when you compare it to a year ago, and we were at 101% of capacity, after all of that rainfall that we had for a couple of years, so you can just see how much our water levels have dropped, and how we really don't have that much left, as we go into our dry summer months, so we do definitely need to conserve, especially seeing that we don't have any more rain in the forecast and temperatures will be going up, warming up into the low 80s for our inland
6:21 am
areas in spots like concord, as well as morgan hill and then as we go into the weekend, it's going to be breezy, but those temperatures do come down a couple of degrees. and we've also been watching those temperatures in san francisco that have been fairly mild, with some mid-60s, and we can see those winds will be gusty going into saturday as well as sunday. now for our climate in crisis, we've been looking at how we can reduce our carbon footprints and across the state, you can generate a lot of your solar energy by using solar panels. as we look at our forecast the last couple of days have showed we've had some cloudy skies but as we go into the next few days from today, tomorrow, as well as thursday, you'll be able to generate more than double the amount of solar that's of course we're saving more than 3,000 tons of carbon
6:22 am
dioxide per day with clean energy, and you can find out ways to reduce your carbon footprint going to our climate in crisis page on laura and marcus? >> thanks, kari. 6:21. next on "today in the bay," "nbc bay area responds." >> about a year ago, the airlines gave millions of families credits for trips they canceled, not refunds. you need to protect that money. i'm consumer investigator chris chmura. i'll show you how next. our team is always on social media and sometimes we like to share portraits of our personal life. i got meet my great nephew. one of the celebratory hugs after being in the pandemic for so long. a little chunky monkey there. follow me on facebook, twitter and instagram. you're watching "today in the bay." i'm available for baby sitting.

6:24 am
6:25 am
6:25. i love a roller coaster but not a thrill like this, not a good one there, the roller coaster riders in the uk over the weekend look at this, new tiktok video is showing passengers stuck nearly 235 feet in the air. that coaster the country's tallest, those passengers having to climb to safety. the whole ordeal lasted about 90 minutes, no word on what caused that stoppage. wow. one year ago after covid-19 hit, millions of families that
6:26 am
canceled millions of airline tickets and got a credit. >> i was among them. 12 months later, it's likely a good time to think about booking. especially if you're not actually ready to fly. consumer investigator chris chmura is here to explain how that all works. >> if you canceled a flight at the start of the pandemic, you probably wanted a refund. the airline probably gave you a credit. it's better than nothing, but those credits don't last forever. many of them expire one year after they were issued. that means a lot of them are expiring right now. unless you want to make a donation to an airline you have to use that credit before its expiration date. what if you don't want to fly? do you forfeit your credit? >> no, do not. >> reporter: that's scott from scott's cheap flights. we discussed a strategy to help you protect your credit. first, check to see if your airline has done away with change fees. if so, you might be set. we're going to use that to your advantage. here's how. say you have a $200 voucher that expires may 1st.
6:27 am
before may 1st, shop around for a roughly $200 ticket as many months out as you can book. pick a destination you eventually want to see. but really you're booking a place hold. when you get comfortable flying again, maybe earlier, you can just use the airlines relaxed rules to change around your dates. >> the airlines have gotten rid of change fees so what that means is that you no longer have to pay the normal $200, $300, $400 penalty you used to. >> it hinges on whether your airline relaxed the rules. research that before pulling the trigger. coming up next, a notorious murder case we covered extensively right here on "today in the bay." it's all back in the headlines. today the murder of laci peterson and her unborn son taking stage again nearly two
6:28 am
decades later. another trial for the killer her husband, scott peterson. you're watching "today in the bay."
6:29 am
6:30 am
did you know that geico's whole 15 minutes thing... that came from me. really. my first idea was “in one quarter of an hour, your savings will tower... over you. figuratively speaking." but that's not catchy, is it? that's not going to swim about in your brain. so i thought, what about... 15 minutes. 15 percent. serendipity. 15 minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance. right now at 6:30, a police chase leads to a deadly overnight crash in san jose and this morning, it's not clear if the victims are the suspects or people and a wrong place at the wrong time.
6:31 am
a live report on what one man saw and what authorities are now telling us. "today in the bay" continues right now. good tuesday morning. thanks for joining us. i'm marcus washington. >> and i'm laura garcia. kris sanchez is live at the scene of the horrific crash. what is the latest, kris? >> reporter: what we know is that the santa clara county sheriff's department was trying to stop a driver when that driver decided to take off instead, and collided with another vehicle and that's how that crash happened this morning. it happened on mitty way just off lawrence expressway near highway 280, right near mitty high school. the sheriff's department confirms they were trying to make that stop and according to a witness, that crash was so forceful that the vehicle that was hit went airborne.
6:32 am
>> i guess probably going pretty fast to get off the pavement. it's like a movie. it's like flipping over the air and slamming into the wall. >> reporter: at this point, we cannot confirm who the victims are nor why the deputies were trying to initiate that stop, but we do know that san jose police are handling this crash investigation. so if your kids though are headed to mitty high, you should be able to get one direction of lawrence expressway is open, but the other direction remains closed between 280 and glen tree drive so that could affect your commute. mike inouye is the best person to help you get around that. >> thank you, kris. there may be changes right now for lawrence expressway if one direction is completely clear. we'll have you updated on which direction that is, as we look at the map, because lawrence goes north/south between 280,
6:33 am
interstate 280 at the top and bollinger road, moorpark avenue on the other side, bottom of the closure, so that is your perimeter there. mitty avenue in the middle past archbishop mitty high school, access from moorpark or the south side if the closure conditions continues as you head toward school and have to head to were ka us or able to go back o-to-campus. 101 slowing the only other incident for santa clara, the area where we first see the commute, we'll track that coming up. back to you. >> thank you very much. next week it will be 20 years since laci peterson and her unborn child were murdered, their bodies found here in the bay. today the man convicted of killing her, her husband, scott peterson will seek a new trial. cierra johnson is here on what to expect today.
6:34 am
a huge case really across the nation. >> reporter: good morning. regardless if you're in the state of california, on the other side of the country, you remember where you were when you heard following the case. it's been 20 years since the ruling and for the last 20 years scott peterson has been here behind san quentin bars. today he makes a court appearance via zoom. we'll break down what the hearings are for, at 10:00 peterson will appear before a criminal matter of the 2004 conviction that's in the case of his wife and his unborn son. last year, a high court ruled a second look at the case, after the original trial judge excluded jurors from the juror pool after they expressed the personally opposed death penalty. the high court maintained the conviction but struck down the death penalty case, which brings us back to today's retrial of the penality phase of that trial. second portion of that 10:00
6:35 am
hearing relates to a new hearing over juror misconduct. peterson and his team claims that juror seven who served during the trial lied during that pretrial questioning. they say when asked if she had ever been eye victim of a crime, she did not disclose a restraining order she filed after being harassed by her boyfriend's ex-girlfriend. in october a court granted a trial court to hold hearings which is where we are today. we will of course be out here for the remainder of the afternoon, those kick off at 10:00 this morning, they will be over zoom but yes, 20 years since that original hearing, scott peterson back in a courtroom for the two additional hearings. we're live in front of san quentin prison, cierra johnson for "today in the bay." >> i remember it so well. i was anchoring here on "today in the bay," it was just a huge, huge case. thanks so much, cierra. 6:35. both sides now gearing up to
6:36 am
sway undecided voters in the battle to recall gavin newsom. >> enough signatures to hold a special recall election, now state republican leader hermeet dillon says linking the recall efforts to extremists is not going to work. >> this is a mainstream across the political spectrum repudiation of his failed leadership. it's great news for california, suffering under one-party rule headed by gavin newsom for too long. >> conservatives will have a lot of convincing to do because newsom has widespread support among democrats. the election will likely happen this fall. among the notable candidates running against governor newsom, southern california businessman john cox who ran against newsom
