I'm sure the ad buyers were pleased to have a Dodge Summer Clearance ad to showing people in L.A. fleeing from giant monsters n' Dodges lead into KCAL 9's security camera photos of people in Venice fleeing in terror of a killer Dodge Chsarger

Oh when the sun beats down and burns the tar up on the roof
And your shoes get so hot you wish your tired feet were fire proof
Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, yeah
With my foot on the accelerator is where I'll be

I have a question: was the driver moving purposefully?

My niece lives in Venice Beach.  Fortunately, she's visiting her mother right now so no chance she was caught in that mess.  I hope some Venice locals catch the person/people responsible and beat the holy fark out of them.

Sounds like a guy who finally flipped out on the 405 and went looking for an alternate route.

LA Times reporting one dead...very sad.

Wow, ABC7 and LA Times now reporting one victim died at the hospital.  That's just sad. I've been to Venice many Saturdays just to stroll and people watch. What a bastard.

Given the placement of multiple cameras on the car, it's some douche who thought it would be funny to post a video on liveleak showing people getting run over.  This is premeditated murder.

I'm pretty confident the supposed cameras are reflections from something like a light pole.

Also, I don't see cameras on the picture of the parked car (#3 on this LA Times slideshow).

Driver turned himself in, but the authorities aren't identifying him or even admitting the make of the car, so he might be "connected" or wealthy?  Not sure if anyone important would be driving an Avenger, though.

Are they certain the parked car is the one involved?

As for the cameras.  You are correct, it could be reflection.

Still, plowing through crowds of people is not something a normal person does.  If he wasn't suffering from some kind of medical emergency, e.g. a stroke, then he is a psycho.

Apparently some guy who witnessed the event saw into the car during the rampage, and the guy was smiling...   This might be one of those extreme dumb-ass moments where he did not think the consequences through until after he had done the damage...  And then he turned himself in.  I bet he is not smiling right now...

How the hell do you even get out that far at Venice Beach with a car? There's condos lining the entire beach and only tiny alleyways to get through.

Although, I could see his getting frustrated with the lack of parking there.

Nah - there's plenty of places you can drive onto the OFW - there have to be for cops, ambulance, deliveries, etc. You can drive onto it from the Speedway right there at Dudley where this happened.

Update: One person has died, and the "person of interest" has turned himself in.

I blame the Henna tattoos.

Or it could be that new math. It's driving the kids nuts.

Well, you don't NEED to have a car with THAT MUCH fuel capacity.

It's like Tourette's - they can't help themselves. No point demeaning them over it - they feel small enough already.

I'm sure all the folks in the prison he's about to get sent to are smiling, however...

What if I have a fifteen gallon tank?
Is it ok if I promise to never put in the extra eight gallons?
