12 hurt as car drives into crowd at LA boardwalk

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say at least a dozen people were injured, two of them critically, when a car drove into people walking along the Venice Beach boardwalk in Los Angeles.

City Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey says multiple witnesses reported the driver appeared to be in control of the car as it drove into people at the popular stretch of galleries, restaurants and tattoo shops on a crowded Saturday afternoon.

Humphrey says firefighters are surveying a big crowd at the scene looking for anyone who was hurt.

He said 12 injured have been counted so far, two of them critically and two more seriously.

Humphrey says the car was still moving as it drove out of sight of firefighters, and it was not clear if the person had stopped.
