LOS ANGELES (AP) — Authorities say a 52-year-old woman was killed and six people were injured when a pickup truck ran onto a crowded sidewalk and crashed into an Indian food restaurant in downtown Los Angeles.

City fire department spokesman Erik Scott said a male driver and a female passenger were in the truck that crossed the sidewalk Sunday afternoon at a bustling Broadway intersection.

Scott says no more than the front quarter of the truck ended up going through the window of the restaurant.

Four people including the two from the pickup truck were taken to hospitals in serious condition. Two others had minor injuries.

All the victims are between 30 and 70 years old but their names and other details were not immediately released.

Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
