Three people are dead and six others are injured in San Diego after a driver plowed through a sidewalk homeless encampment. 

Authorities arrested 71-year-old Craig Voss at the scene. They say he was heading through a tunnel on Monday morning when he drove his Volvo station wagon onto the sidewalk. 

Voss faces three counts of vehicular manslaughter, five counts of causing great bodily harm and a felony DUI. San Diego's police chief didn't say whether Voss was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, but he did say more charges may be coming.
