A Fiat has hit at least seven pedestrians during an auto show in downtown Los Angeles.

Paramedics responded to the scene near 12th Street and South Figueroa Street, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department. 

The Los Angeles Auto Show was taking place at the Convention Center near the crash. A photo released by LAFD shows the impacted vehicle with a sticker on the driver door, which reads, "Drive today! At the auto show."

Officials described five of the victims to be in "moderate distress," KABC reported.

Paramedics attended to eight adults, before six of them were taken to local hospitals. Those hospitalized included five pedestrians and the driver, who initially declined medical attention, Brian Humphrey of LAFD told KTLA.
