“There was people kind of stumbling around, blood dripping down their legs looking confused not knowing what had happened, people screaming.”
That’s how one witness described the scene Saturday at the Venice Beach boardwalk in Los Angles after a man deliberately plowed his car through crowds at the popular tourist area, killing one person and injuring 12.
Witnesses said the man was driving at about 60 miles per hour when he turned his car on to the pedestrian walkway.
According to one witness, the driver wanted “to create mayhem and massacre a lot of people.”
The 38-year-old driver, Nathan Campbell, was charged with murder after he turned himself in to police hours after the incident and remins in custody in lieu of a $1 million bond.
“There no indication that he knew anybody that he hit,” LAPD Cmdr. Andy Smith said. “It looks like this guy wanted to run over a bunch of people. One guy bent on doing evil.”
