Sunnyvale Crash May Be 'Domestic Terrorism,' Driver Accelerated Into Pedestrians

Source: KPIX-TV

SUNNYVALE (KPIX 5) – The FBI was assisting Sunnyvale police Wednesday in investigating a driver who allegedly intentionally slammed his vehicle into eight people on a Sunnyvale street, severely injuring several of them.

In an email to KPIX 5 early Wednesday, the FBI said it was “assessing the situation to determine federal involvement. Should it be determined that a federal crime was committed, we will become more involved.”

Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety Capt. Jim Choi told reporters Wednesday that the driver may have accelerated as he veered toward the pedestrians.

“The driver did not slow down, did not try to avoid the victims and also may have accelerated at the last moment,” he said.

3. "He wasn't hurt apparently, and he was mumbling over and over again, 'thank you Jesus

SUNNYVALE, Calif. (AP) — A witness to a California crash that injured eight people said Wednesday he was waiting for a traffic light to turn green when a Toyota Corolla plowed through the intersection at a high speed, sending pedestrians flying into the air in the Silicon Valley city of Sunnyvale.

Don Draper, 72, said he was so enraged that he marched over to the car that had stopped after slamming into a tree. He found the driver slumped over the steering wheel as the car hissed steam. The door was open.

“He wasn’t hurt apparently, and he was mumbling over and over again, ‘thank you Jesus, thank you Jesus, thank you Jesus’ again and again,” Draper said. “And at this point I realized I had to call 911.”

Police officers went to the apartment complex Wednesday of the driver who authorities say appeared to deliberately plow into a group of people, including a 13-year-old girl. Authorities have not identified the man who was driving Tuesday night in the city located about 50 miles (80 kilometers) south of San Francisco.

5. I wonder if Christian leaders will apologize for this?

Since their followers demand the same of Muslims.

6. Local news portrays him

As a military vet with PTSD who is off of his meds

And the story at link has been updated to reflect that too, he’s not linked to any terrorist group
