The Los Angeles Police Department said the suspect, 38-year-old Nathan Campbell, allegedly mowed down pedestrians on the boardwalk. Witnesses say the suspect seemed to be intentionally driving into the crowd, KABC reports.

Ten victims were taken to local hospitals. Two people with minor injuries declined to be transported, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.
