REDONDO BEACH, Calif. - Police say one person is dead and as many as 12 may be injured after a woman drove into a group of pedestrians outside a Southern California church where a Christmas performance had just ended.

Redondo Beach police Lt. Joe Hoffman says several people are critically injured and have been taken to hospitals after the Wednesday night crash. Hoffman says one adult died at a hospital, and the injured included at least one child.

Hoffman says the woman was driving on Pacific Coast Highway when she ran a red light, ran into the pedestrians, then hit another vehicle.

Police took the woman into custody and took her to a hospital. They're investigating whether she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
