2 Pedestrians Fatally Struck, 6 Hurt In Chino Church Parking Lot

CHINO (CBSLA.com)  —  Two people were reportedly killed Sunday evening when they were hit by a SUV in a Chino parking lot.

The accident occurred in the 5500 block of Schaefer Avenue.

The parking lot is attached to a Korean church known as the East Sarang Community Church.

Police responded to the scene just after 7:05 p.m.

A male driver apparently struck six pedestrians when he accidentally backed up onto the curb.

Two people died at the scene. Four others were transported to the hospital. The injuries of the four people appear to be non-life threatening.

All the victims were female adults. The driver and the victims had all apparently attended a reception at the church.

At this time, the crime is being called a terrible accident. Police do not believe it was intentional or an act of terror.

The driver and his female passenger, his wife, also had minor injuries.

CBS 2’s Jennifer Kastner reported from the scene where she said the driver also hit a tree after backing into the crowd of pedestrians.

Investigators were expected to be on seen into the early hours of the morning.
