Investigators are trying to determine why the driver plowed into the group. Police say alcohol was not a factor.

“He told officers that he passed out briefly and drove onto the sidewalk,” Sgt. Ray Battrick, San Diego Police Department watch commander, told ABC News.

Following the crash, some attacked the cab driver. He was transported to a local hospital and treated for a broken nose and other injuries.
