San Diego DUI Driver Collides with Nine Pedestrians, Killing Three
A San Diego driver veered off the street between Park Boulevard and 16th Street and traveled underneath the San Diego City College Bridge where his vehicle collided with nine pedestrians. First responders rushed the injured to a nearby hospital but several pedestrians involved in the incident were declared dead at the scene.
Police reported the driver of the vehicle to have identified himself at the scene. After speaking with police, the driver was deemed to have been intoxicated and driving under the influence. He was then arrested and held on three counts of vehicular manslaughter, five counts of causing great bodily injury while committing a felony, and one count of felony DUI.
It has been confirmed by the Mayor that “many, if not all” of the pedestrians involved in the accident were homeless and had been sheltering under the bridge where the accident occurred.
