Police and fire crews responded to the scene near San Diego City College shortly after 9 a.m. Monday to find “multiple people” dead and injured after being struck by a Volvo station wagon that veered completely onto the sidewalk. Fire Chief Stowell called the incident “a very tragic emergency incident that impacts all of us” and said that fire crews “did the best they could with the resources there” in trying to save the lives of those who died. San Diego Police Chief David Nisleit said that officers detained the driver of the car, identified only as 71-year-old man, and are investigating him for possible charges of impaired driving.
