The driver who allegedly plowed his SUV through a crowded street carnival was hit with a felony in connection to the frightening scene that left several injured, la policía dijo.
Mississippi man Steven Weems, 23, was arrested Saturday night and charged with a felony hit-and-run, the Los Angeles Police Department told The Post. He’s in custody on $50,000 fianza, dijo la policía de Los Ángeles.
Seven people suffered minor injuries, authorities said Sunday after Weems allegedly fled from police in a white Porsche Cayenne after officers attempted to pull him over for a traffic stop around 8:20 pm.
The flashy car crashed into a cement rail and into the carnival in the city’s historic South Central area where about 2,000 people were enjoying the event, las autoridades dijeron.
“It is a blessing that no one actually got severely injured,” police Sgt. Robert Leary dijo al Los Angeles Times. “It was quite hectic, so I think people saw this car coming in and thankfully they got out of the way in time.”
The vehicle was later found three blocks from the crash scene, la policía dijo, según ABC 7.
Weems was arrested around 8:30 pm. Saturday and booked early Sunday, la policía dijo.
