LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A rapidly accelerating car driven by a young man screeched across a sidewalk and straight into a crowd enjoying one of Southern California's most popular boardwalks, killing one person, injuring 11 and leaving the promenade in chaos as he sped out of sight.

The victim died at a hospital a few hours after the Saturday evening crash at the Venice Beach boardwalk, Los Angeles police Lt. Andy Neiman said.
