According to LA Times, On November 1, 2015 a U-Haul truck drove onto a
sidewalk full of pedestrians celebrating Halloween in downtown LA. The
driver hit two vehicles and injured ten people, police said.
The driver has been identified by witnesses and police as 40-year-old Michael
Maurice Wilson. Witnesses claim they saw the driver walk away from the
vehicle, apparently unharmed, toward Main Street. Additionally, Wilson
admitted that he was under the influence of marijuana, and police confirm
that an additional substance was found in his pocket. A blood sample was
taken to determine the extent of Wilson's intoxication.
Wilson was arrested for driving under the influence and told the police
that he did not remember much about the incident. The U-Haul truck was
empty and did not appear to be stolen.
The ten individuals who were injured in the accident include five pedestrians,
a motorcyclist, and four passengers of a struck vehicle. Three individuals
remain in the hospital for treatment, although it appears that no life-threatening
injuries were sustained.
