    According to police, multiple people were still trapped under the perpetrator's vehicle when law enforcement arrived. As police said, at the time of the incident "hundreds of people were on the sidewalk, nearby parking lots and outside restaurants and bars".

    Police arrested a man who mowed down pedestrians in his red Toyota Tacoma in Fullerton, California at about 1:45 a.m. local time. As law enforcement specified, he is suspected to have been acting under the influence of drugs and has been charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and causing great bodily injury.

    Police have identified the driver as Christopher Solis, 22, of Anaheim. According to law enforcement, a total of 10 people, between 18 and 49 years old, were subsequently taken to the hospital with injuries that were moderate to critical and life-threatening. As police stated there were nine victims, it's unclear if Solis is one of them.
