Baby killed, 15 injured after car crashes into pedestrians on Rio de Janeiro beach

The accident is not thought to be terror-related.

— -- A baby was killed and 15 people were injured -- including more children -- after a car crashed into pedestrians along a beach walk in Brazil, according to media reports and local authorities.

An 8-month-old baby was killed in the accident, according to Reuters and Brazilian TV network Globo, citing police.

Video out of Rio de Janeiro shows people strewn about the sand after the accident.

First responders were seen tending to the injured, who were surrounded by a crowd of onlookers after the accident. The extent of the injuries is unknown.

A small black car was seen with its hood lifted as authorities investigated the scene.

It's the run-up to Carnival season, so beaches are more crowded than normal with tourists.
