At least one person is dead, with up to 12 others injured after a car slammed into a group of pedestrians Wednesday in Redondo Beach, California, police said. The crash occurred outside a church where a Christmas service had just ended.
Some of the pedestrians were rushed to hospitals with critical injuries, Redondo Beach police Lt. Joe Hoffman said. One adult died at a hospital, and the injured included at least two children.
Police said a woman was driving northbound on Pacific Coast Highway when she ran a red light, striking the pedestrians and hitting another car, according to ABC station KABC-TV.
The woman was taken in police custody to a hospital, where she was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, authorities said.
