Eight pedestrians, including a 13-year-old, are hospitalized after a suspected speeding driver drove into them in Sunnyvale, California, police said.

The crash was reported at 6:40 p.m. at the intersection of El Camino Real and Saratoga Sunnyvale Road.

Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety Capt. Jim Choi said the driver, an adult male, is in police custody. Police are investigating the incident as an intentional act due to initial statements made at the scene.

“We have preliminary evidence from witnesses that he was accelerating, doesn’t look like he tried to brake at all,” Choi said.

Victims’ belongings and bicylces lined the path the car took before the driver crashed into a tree.

All victims were transported to local hospitals for treatment and their conditions were not immediately known. 

No other information was immediately available.
