More deplorable behavior on the roadways comes in the form of a suspected hit-and-run driver that stuck "three pedestrians and a parked car in Downtown Los Angeles Sunday morning, said authorities," according to NBC LA. The accidents began around 3:00 a.m. near 11th Street and Hill Street. Responding firefighters found the victims in an alley at the scene.

“When we got here, we found in a parking area behind that intersection, we found one victim that was struck by a car,” said Captain Albert Ward, Los Angeles City Fire Department. “Subsequently, we found two victims, which turned into three victims,” said Captain Ward. The victims were taken to local hospitals suffering from moderate injuries, he said.

The accident appeared to have spanned an area of at least two blocks. The suspect's car was described by witnesses as a black four-door Audi with a cracked windshield. Police are investigating whether the accidents were intentional.
