Up to 14 hurt in SF hit-and-run spree / 7 critical; driver believed to have struck, killed a man in Fremont earlier

As many as 14 people were injured this afternoon by a motorist who drove around San Francisco deliberately running them down before being arrested by police, who believe the same driver struck and killed a man earlier today in Fremont. At least one hit-and-run victim remained in critical condition this evening. Reports of the incidents began pouring in at 12:47 p.m., police said. Within a half-hour, San Francisco police had cornered and arrested 29-year-old Omeed Aziz Popal, who has addresses in Ceres (Stanislaus County) and Fremont.

Omeed. Aziz. Popal. I did a Google search and all three names are Iranian and Afghanistan themed but I’m sure he was just a disenfranchised Swede.
