One person was killed and several others were injured this afternoon when a pick-up truck jumped the curb and crashed into pedestrians on a busy sidewalk on Broadway in downtown.

The crash happened at 4th Street and Broadway, a busy intersection for weekend shoppers, just before 2 pm today, according to City News Service. The pick-up truck ended up landing partially inside an Indian food cafe on Broadway a storefront that we're guessing is Casa India rather than an Indian food cafe.

CBS Los Angeles reports that the victim who was killed was a 52-year-old woman. The driver of the truck and two passengers were taken to a hospital with injuries. One man on the sidewalk was severely injured, and there were two other pedestrians with less critical injuries.
