Several Injured After Car Reportedly Drives Into Carnival in South Central


Several people were injured after a vehicle drove through a South Central carnival Saturday night, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

About six people between the ages of 15 and 40 years old reportedly suffered injuries to their legs and were transported to a hospital with non life threatening injuries, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. 

The incident occurred at around 8:20 p.m. on E. King Boulevard and S. Trinity Street in the historic South Central area. 

LAPD says they attempted to conduct a traffic stop when the driver of a white SUV drove through the carnival.

A vehicle was found about three blocks away from the scene matching the description of the vehicle involved in the crash, LAPD said.

They arrested a man Sunday who has been identified as 23-year-old Steven Weems.

Weems is being held for felony hit-and-run on $50,000 bail.
