A 100-year-old man reversed his car on to a pavement and hit 11 people, including nine children from a primary school, in Los Angeles, California.

Four children were in critical condition when firemen arrived on the scene but were all expected to survive.

Parents and children were buying snacks after school finished on Wednesday when Preston Carter backed a powder blue Cadillac towards them.
