6:01 am
right now, they are not. there is your view, traveling north past the coliseum, if you can take west 580 do so, because that's clear. back to you. >> thanks, mike. new overnight a wild scene along moorpark avenue in san jose. more than half a dozen parked cars damaged. >> witnesses tell us it looked like a truck just plowed right into them. roz plater is on the scene where the wreckage remains and the question is how were more people not heard, roz? >> reporter: we just got an update from police on injuries. i'll tell you about that in a second. first we're told that the person responsible for all this took off running. now take a look here at some of the cars that were damaged still on the scene. you can see this really bad rear end damage to this suv here. let's show you some of the video from the scene just after it happened. all this went down just before 11:00 last night in the 3900 block of moorpark. it appears a truck crashed into a half dozen cars parked along the street. some had extensive damage. one man told us the crash was so
6:02 am
loud at first he thought the vehicle had struck his apartment building. the truck wound up flipped over completely upside down and witnesses say the driver just took off running. >> the guy ended up getting out of the truck that flipped and took off running. how, i don't know, because it looked like a pretty bad accident. >> reporter: police tell us one person was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, so that is the good news in all of this. of course police are still investigating all of this. we don't know about charges, and we'll give thaw information as we get it. for now we are live in san jose, i'm roz plater for "today in the bay." >> all right, roz, thank you. 6:0 6:02 for you right now. president trump heads to france tonight for this weekend's g7 summit which he says should be g8. russia was kicked out five years ago and president trump wants them back. tracie potts has two personalities to watch out for at this meeting.

tracie? >> that's right, marcus. president trump and the man in europe that some call the president trump of great britain making his debut at the g7, while president trump suggests maybe vladimir putin the president of russia should be back at the table. 13,000 officers ready for protests at this weekend's g7 uhm isity in southern france, banks and the beach are closed, stores boarded up in case demonstrations turn violent. there's tension between the u.s. and europe on trade, iran, climate change, and president trump's push to reinstate russia. >> if somebody would make that motion, i would certainly be disposed to think about it very favorably. >> reporter: russia was removed in 2014 after invading crimea. >> to invite them back in without condition essentially ratifies that illegal act. >> it makes it look like he owes president putin some kind of favor. >> reporter: europeans aren't crazy about the idea either.
6:04 am
>> the case has yet to be made out for russia to return to the g7. >> reporter: that's boris johnson, britain's new prime minister. some call him europe's version of trump. >> they would probably gate long like a house on fire, or they will pretend to. >> reporter: the world's seven largest economies are expected to end this meeting without a joint statement for the first time ever. tracie potts, nbc news, washington. and coming up, some of the top democrats running for president are descending upon san francisco. at 6:30, a look at who will show up in person and brand new perspective from our political analyst. new this morning, anti-semitic fliers showing up in the north bay and novato city leaders along with police and school leaders and the community say they are united against hate. residents reported seeing the fliers near storefronts in the downtown area near their safeway store there and at least a dozen were posted on the san marin high school campus.
