    9 hurt when DUI suspect drives onto sidewalk in California

    FULLERTON, Calif. Witnesses and emergency responders lifted a pickup truck off people trapped when a driver plowed into a crowd on a sidewalk in Southern California early Sunday, injuring at least nine, authorities said.
    Police arrested a 22-year-old man on suspicion of driving under the influence of drugs after the truck crashed into a popular area of Fullerton filled with people leaving bars and restaurants shortly before closing time.
    "It was a very chaotic scene," police Lt. Jon Radus said.

    The Toyota Tacoma jumped the curb, struck people and then crashed into a tree, Radus said. Some of the victims were trapped under the truck.

    Omg. I’ve defended scores of civil suits involving drunk drivers. Very few are remorseful.

    Now there is a case where police and EMS really earn their money. Likely dealing with impaired driver, victims , witnesses and probably on lookers. I don't know how they do it.

    I suspect that he was rolling down the street smoking endo, sipping on gin and juice.
