A man appeared to intentionally drive into a very, very crowded Venice Beach late yesterday, killing one woman, 32, on her honeymoon from Italy, and injuring 11 others. What is so terrifying about this is that he seemed to have really thought about what he was about to do. This wasn't an old man losing control of his vehicle. This was a man that got into his car, which was parked alongside the boardwalk, and then plowed into people out enjoying the day. Witnesses said it seemed as if he was aiming for people ... trying to hit them.
The witness accounts really make you take pause. One 35-year-old woman, Louise Hodge, said:
There was people kind of stumbling around, blood dripping down their legs looking confused not knowing what had happened, people screaming. It was blocks and blocks of people just strewn across the sidewalk.
Thankfully, the police have made an arrest, and have Nathan Louis Campbell, 38, in custody. A $1 million bail has been set. Now we just wait for the inevitable insanity plea.
Do stories like these make you hesitate when going to popular, crowded, locations?
