LOS ANGLES (KTLA) — A driver plowed into a crowd at a street carnival in South Los Angeles Saturday evening, injuring at least six people. The mass hit-and-run happened near Trinity Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard around 8:20 p.m., according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Carnival goers say they were waiting in line for rides when they heard a loud boom that sounded like possible gunshots. People were screaming and running in all directions after the sound.

Hundreds of attendees were present at the carnival when the suspect drove through the crowd of about 2,000 people, according to The Associated Press.

The suspect was driving a newer, white-colored Porsche Cayenne SUV with major collision damage when they fled the scene headed south on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Wall Street, police said.
