LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles police detectives have been questioning a man who walked into a police station in Santa Monica and told officers he was involved in an incident last night in neighboring Venice Beach. They are trying to determine whether the man was the driver of a car that plowed into the crowd on the boardwalk, killing one person and injuring 11 others.

Security video shows a young man parking a car next to the Venice Beach boardwalk. After walking around for several minutes, he gets back in and the car accelerates across a sidewalk, running down vendors and other people before fleeing.

Witnesses are saying it appeared the driver was in control of his car when he drove it into the crowd.
