LOS ANGELES (AP) - A man has been charged with driving drunk into a dozen people who were parked while looking at a holiday light display in suburban Los Angeles.

LA County prosecutors say 28-year-old Ismael Soto was charged with felony counts of driving under the influence of alcohol within 10 years of two other offenses.

Soto made his initial court appearance Wednesday but had his arraignment postponed until next month. It’s not clear whether he’s retained a lawyer.

Police said 11 people were rushed to hospitals following the crash Sunday, including a 27-year-old woman with a critical head injury. All the injured are expected to survive.

Police said the group gathered after dark to watch an annual holiday display at a neighborhood home in the city of Alhambra.
