SAN DIEGO (AP) — Police say a taxi cab driver plowed slowly into a crowd on a sidewalk in San Diego's Gaslamp District, injuring several people.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the incident occurred about 2 a.m. Saturday in the middle of San Diego's popular restaurant and nightclub zone, close to the convention center.

The newspaper says 25 people were injured. Officials say all but two were taken to area hospitals. Their conditions were not available early Saturday.

One young woman reportedly was pinned against a wall by the cab and had her leg severed.

Police Lt. Todd Jarvis say officials are investigating why the driver drove onto the sidewalk. Officials say the cab was traveling slowly and the crash did not appear to be intentional.

The driver's name was not immediately available.
