1 dead, 6 injured as car careens onto sidewalk in California; marijuana found in driver's car

A car that veered onto a California sidewalk has killed a woman and injured six other people, including the driver and two children.

Police say a 65-year-old man was driving the Nissan Versa that hit people near a bus stop in Vallejo on Friday afternoon.

The Vallejo Times-Herald (http://bit.ly/1CjSHUI) says the car went 50 feet, dragging two women. A passing tow truck driver lifted the car off them.

A 49-year-old Vallejo woman died at the scene and her 4-year-old daughter was injured. Two other women and a 4-year-old boy were hurt. The driver was treated for minor injuries.

Witnesses said the driver seemed to slump at the wheel before hitting the gas.

Lt. Kevin Bartlett says marijuana was found in the car. The man wasn't immediately arrested.

Vallejo is about 25 miles northeast of San Francisco.
