MANKATO, Minn. (AP) -

Police say six people were hurt when a man deliberately drove his vehicle into a crowd in a parking lot in Minnesota.

Authorities say the 21-year-old Montgomery, Minnesota, man then fled the scene in Mankato early Sunday before Blue Earth County sheriff's deputies arrested him. KTTC went to the Blue Earth County Sheriff's Office website and found Juan Carlos Lamas, Jr. listed in their jail roster.

Lamas was booked into jail on preliminary charges of fourth-degree driving while under the influence and criminal vehicular operation.

The Mankato Free Press reports two of the victims were airlifted to Saint Marys Hospital in Rochester while two others were treated at Mayo Clinic Health System in Mankato. No details of the other two people hurt were immediately available.
