SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - An Army veteran with a history of post-traumatic stress disorder was on his way to a Bible class when he told investigators he intentionally drove into a group of men, women and children, injuring eight people, police said.

Isaiah Joel Peoples, 34, was scheduled to appear in court Friday in San Jose after being charged with eight counts of attempted murder.

Peoples is a former Army sharpshooter who was deployed to Iraq in 2005 and 2006. He showed no remorse after his car plowed at high speed into a group of people in a crosswalk on Tuesday evening in the Silicon Valley suburb of Sunnyvale before hitting a tree, Police Chief Phan Ngo said.

Eight people were hurt, the youngest a 9-year-old boy who was treated for minor injuries. Four remained hospitalized, including a 13-year-old girl in critical condition.

A witness said he watched in horror as the car sped through a crosswalk in a shopping area and bodies went flying. It was a warm night, around dinnertime, and people were out in cafes and restaurants.
