SAN DIEGO – A truck launched through a guardrail and fell nearly 60 feet from a highway overpass into a crowded San Diego park Saturday afternoon, killing at least four people police said.

Police said several others were injured at Chicano Park, where a group of about 100 people were celebrating the La Raza Run motorcycle festival, according to KNSD.

The driver is alive but was hospitalized with critical injuries. He also was arrested and charged on suspicion of DUI.

“It’s horrible. It’s horrific,” California Highway Patrol Officer Jake Sanchez told KNSD. “There’s people down below, bodies — just innocent people that are just down here having a good time and now they’re gone. We feel for their families.”
