38-Year-Old Man Arrested in Venice Boardwalk Hit-and-Run

VENICE, Calif. (KTLA) — A man was arrested and booked in downtown Los Angeles, in connection with a deadly hit-and-run on the Venice boardwalk, the LAPD said Sunday during a news conference carried live on KTLA.

The man, identified as Nathan Campbell, was being held on $1 million dollars bail, according to LAPD Lt. Robert Long.

Campbell, 38,  would soon be charged with murder, Long said.

One woman was killed in the incident and 11 others injured when the driver of a dark-colored sedan struck several pedestrians near the boardwalk on Saturday evening at about 6 p.m., authorities said.

The woman who died was on her honeymoon, according to the LAPD.

Campbell walked into a Santa Monica police station about an hour after the hit-and-run and told police he was “connected” to the incident, authorities said.
