SUNNYVALE, Calif. - Authorities said a driver seems to have deliberately hit eight victims Tuesday evening with a vehicle in Sunnyvale.
“Some of the (witness) statements are that the vehicle didn’t try to brake or slow down,” said Jim Choi, Chief of the Sunnyvale DPS. “That the vehicle was speeding and went directly into the crowd.”
The incident happened around 7:30 p.m.
One of the victims was a 13-year-old boy.
There is also no known motive of the attack.
Sunnyvale police say it is "too early to rule out the possibility of a terrorist attack."
Investigators are not releasing the conditions of the victims.
Police took the suspect into custody after the car smashed into a tree.
