LOS ANGELES — A man was killed and 12 other people were injured after a car crashed into a food stall Friday night, officials said.
Three of the injured were in critical condition after the crash, which happened in Pomona, east of Los Angeles, around 7:40 p.m., according to police and firefighters.
Aerial helicopter footage from NBC Los Angeles showed the sedan crashing into what appeared to be a cooking stove on the sidewalk. Debris was strewn across the stage.
The driver, a 26-year-old woman from Pomona, fled but turned himself in about 75 minutes later, Pomona police spokesman Aly Mejia told reporters at the scene.
The crash was investigated late Friday. Mejia didn’t know how fast the car was going.
In addition to the person who died, 12 other people were injured, three of whom are in critical condition, said Craig Little, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
The man who died has not been identified and more details about him were not released Friday night.
The accident happened at the intersection of West Holt Ave and Dudley Street. The driver drove east and ended up in opposite lanes before crashing into the food stall, Mejia said.
