Man Intentionally Drives Car Into Crowd of People in Sunnyvale, California, Injuring Eight, Including a 13-Year-Old Child

Via John Sexton at Hot Air.

Although the car has been identified as belonging to Isaiah Peoples, he notes that it's possible the car was stolen or otherwise not driven by the owner.

But the police were seen outside of Isaiah People's house.

The attack appeared intentional but the motive is still a mystery. Police are working to find out if the driver knew any of the people he hit. All of the victims were adults with the exception of one 13-year-old girl. Some were seriously injured but their names have not been released. There is also the possibility that this was some kind of medical emergency, though if Peoples was the driver 34 would be pretty young for a heart attack.

Thus far, police are being careful not to use the T-word or to suggest that could be a motive, but itís clear thatís one possibility under consideration. Police have contacted the FBI seeking information about the driver.

The Mercury News reports the man was heard muttering something religious, though perhaps not what you might be expecting.

A driver suspected of plowing into a crowd of pedestrians in a busy Sunnyvale intersection Tuesday, injuring eight people including a 13-year-old girl, stumbled out of his car afterward mumbling, "I love you, Jesus," according to a man who watched the horrific crash unfold in front of him.

...

Draper added: "He kept repeating, mumbling over and over again, 'I love you, Jesus''and ĎJesus, I love you.' He seemed to be dazed. At this point, I walked back from where the car was, toward the intersection and dialed 911. I was so nervous and upset, I was having trouble dialing."

According to The Heavy, Isaiah Peoples served in Afghanistan and has PTSD.


It might have been a heart attack or seizure, or it might have had a psychotic break and attempted a horrifically cowardly suicide/multiple murder attempt.
