LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a 100-year-old man drove onto a sidewalk and hit 11 people, including nine children, across from an elementary school in South Los Angeles.

Los Angeles fire Capt. Jaime Moore says four of the children were in critical condition when firefighters arrived but they were stabilized and are now in serious condition at a hospital.

Moore says some of the victims were trapped under the powder blue Cadillac before witnesses helped pull them out.

Police identified the driver as 100-year-old Preston Carter. Investigators are interviewing him and say he is being cooperative.
