“Los Angeles police search for motive of bloody boardwalk hit-and-run attack, rule out terrorism”
“Authorities have arrested Nathan Louis Campbell, 38, of Los Angeles, on suspicion of murder after he walked into a police station in neighboring Santa Monica in the hours following the attack and said he was involved. He remained jailed Sunday on $1 million bail.
The driver was first seen Saturday parked outside a hotel as he surveyed the boardwalk: Hundreds of people were sitting at cafes, walking along the seashore or shopping at vendors selling jewelry or art.
Then, according to surveillance video, the man got into a large black car, steered around a vehicle barrier and drove through the crowd.
The driver knocked over two mannequins and an ATM and started hitting people, swerving from side to side and often running straight into victims.
Witnesses said the car was traveling at about 35 to 40 mph along the boardwalk.”
