A preliminary investigation indicates the driver ran a red light and collided with another vehicle, police Sgt. C. Barlow said.

Courtney Crump said several victims were pinned under the van and one man had severe head injuries.

At least six people were injured when a vehicle careened into a crowd of people in Mid-City Los Angeles.

KTLA-TV reports that a 44-year-old man was rushed by first responders to hospital in a critical condition.

"The driver tried to leave the area and was detained by witnesses about a block away", Barlow said.

The remaining victims were described as in fair condition. An off-duty firefighter with the department was in the crowd but did not get injured.

Los Angeles police said the driver was cooperating with investigators to determine what caused the crash. Inniss said the man had been dining with his daughter, who looked around 10 years of age and was uninjured in the incident.

Officials say a white van ran a red light and hurled into a group of diners in the L.A. neighborhood of Mid-Wilshire just before 4 p.m. on Sunday.

The driver came out of the van and appeared disoriented, Crump said.
