Three people were killed after a car jumped the sidewalk and drove through an area with a number of tents under a bridge, hitting nine people near San Diego City College, authorities said.

Several were badly hurt in the crash, including two who are in critical condition at a local hospital, said San Diego Police Chief David Nisleit.

Multiple ambulances responded to the scene near City College around 9 a.m. where on a typical weekday morning it is a busy area with students walking by.

There is also a large homeless population in the vicinity.
