On Saturday, police reported six people, including two children, were taken to the hospital when the truck veered off the road near Macarthur Park and onto the sidewalk.
“It was originally reported that a firearm was pointed at the driver by an unknown male,” according to an LAPD statement. “However, after further interviews with the driver and witnesses, no firearm was ever seen. The investigation also revealed there were no signs of impairment or other related crimes.”
Officials say, one adult was seriously injured while the others suffered minor injuries. It was unclear if the motorist was cited or arrested.
