| No Comments

A driver was arrested Sunday afternoon for DWI after hitting six pedestrians in her car, police said.

The driver, identified as 32-year-old Kristine J. Peterson, hit six pedestrians while turning left only Oak Street from Washington Avenue near the U of M campus. Peterson told authorities she didn't see the victims crossing the street, according to CBS.

Police said six people were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center. Five of the six victims have been released, with one man still hospitalized Monday. Everyone is expected to recover.

Police did not specify Peterson's blood-alcohol level reading, but did say that it was more than 0.08 percent, the legal limit for driving in Minneapolis, the Star Tribune reported.

Peterson has a court date Nov. 26.
