The man, who was driving a car that plowed into a group of pedestrians on a Venice Beach boardwalk recently, killing at least one pedestrian and injuring several others, has been arrested.

According to local authorities, a 32-year-old Italian tourist was killed in the pedestrian accident that occurred when the man drove his Dodge Avenger into a crowd of people on the famous Venice Beach boardwalk.  It now appears that the man Nathan Campbell has turned himself in after the accident which occurred on the weekend. He is being held on a $1 million bail.

Prosecutors are reviewing potential charges against him. It also appears that the man, who hails from Colorado, was living in his car, and that local California law enforcement officers are quite familiar with him.

Witnesses, who were at the scene of the accident, described a scene of complete terror, as the car plowed into a group of people, who were enjoying the evening weather on the famed crosswalk. Killed instantly was a 32-year-old Italian tourist, who was on her honeymoon in the United States. At least 11 people were injured in the accident. One of the victims is believed to be in a critical condition.

Soon after the accident, witnesses reported seeing people bloody and stumbling, with several other people strewn on the sidewalk for blocks.  Campbell initially drove from the scene of the accident, but later decided to turn himself in.

There were several barriers kept in place to block off pedestrians from the walking area, but the barriers proved to be insufficient to prevent the car from flowing into the crowd. Local Los Angeles City Council officials are considering replacing the insufficient pedestrian barriers.
