A drunken driver hit 6 pedestrians with their car at an intersection near the University of Minnesota Sunday afternoon, as reported by The Star Tribune.

Around 3 p.m., Kristine J. Peterson of St. Francis, 32, hit the six cross-walkers while turning left from Washington Avenue onto Oak Street Southeast.

Of the victims, two of which are University of Minnesota students, only 58-year-old Michael Duffy, of Burnsville, remains hospitalized, according to The Minnesota Daily. However, The Daily reports that only four pedestrians were hit, in contrast to The Star Tribune's report of six.

Minneapolis Sgt. Stephen McCarty said that Peterson's actions were "unintentional" and clarified that her blood alcohol content was above the .08 state's legal limit. She was ticketed for drunk driving and jailed; she was released Sunday evening and has a court date for November 26.
