Nathan Louis Campell allegedly drove a vehicle onto the Venice Beach boardwalk on Saturday evening, killing one pedestrian and injuring 12 others.

At around 5 p.m. on Saturday night a black car travelling around 60 mph turned onto the boardwalk, which was heavily congested with foot traffic. "There were people flying, laying on the ground, tents flying everywhere. If he wanted to kill people, he came on a perfect time, 5 p.m. on a Saturday in the summer in Venice Beach," a witness told CNN. Other witnesses were more positive of Cambells’s intent.

"That guy's intention was to kill people," Landon Blackburn told ABC Los Angeles station KABC-TV.

Campell reportedly turned himself in about two hours after the fatal incident. He has since been arrested and booked on murder charges. He is being held on $1 million bail, according to ABC News.

The woman slain in the tragic hit and run has been identified as 32-year-old Alice Gruppioni. One of the other victims is currently in critical condition, two are in serious condition and eight others are receiving treatment for minor injuries.
