The man who plowed his car through a crowd of pedestrians Tuesday night is an Iraq War veteran with post traumatic stress disorder, according to several reports.
“Sunnyvale Police Department said in a tweet that the suspect is Isaiah Joel Peoples, a 34-year-old resident of Sunnyvale,” said CBS13. “He was arrested Tuesday night after speeding through an intersection and crashing his Toyota Corolla into a tree. The conditions of the injured, which included a 13-year-old girl, were not immediately disclosed.”
Peoples’ mother told Associated Press that he suffered from the common post-war mental health disorder, and that he received inpatient treatment for PTSD in 2015.
“She couldn’t fathom any situation in which her timid son would deliberately crash into innocent people, other than something related to the PTSD he experienced after serving as an Army sharpshooter in Iraq,” according to the CBS report.
The Pentagon confirmed his status as a military veteran.
His mother “said her son graduated from Sacramento State University after returning from Iraq in 2007. But he did have “a bad episode” with PTSD about two years ago and Peoples said her son told her he has been regularly taking medication since,” according to the report.
She also said he did not have any friends, other than the people he worked with.
Witnesses told local news outlets that he was muttering “thank you Jesus,” and “thank you Elijah” during his arrest after the crash.
Big League Politics reported early Wednesday morning on the crash:
Tuesday evening, a driver in Sunnyvale, California deliberately ran over eight people with his car, police believe, according to multiple news reports.
“A car plowed into a group of pedestrians in Sunnyvale, California Tuesday night, and police say the crash may have been intentional,” said ABC7. “Eight victims were taken to the hospital, some with serious injuries. The driver was arrested.”
The name of the driver has not been released.
“Around 6:40 p.m., a man in a dark sedan was seen by witnesses speeding through the busy intersection before plowing through the group of people,” the report continued. “The Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety said the group was possibly targeted by the driver, a man who they believe purposely turned into the group while driving full speed.”
The accident did not make many national headlines. Only local California news outlets have reported on the event.
According to the report, the youngest victim was a 13-year-old girl. The rest are adults. Police are investigating the motive for the alleged crime.
Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety Capt. Jim Choi spoke with local media.
“Looks like it might have been an intentional act,” he said. “All of that is under investigation at this time. The driver is in custody. We do have witness statements that show that vehicle did not attempt to slow down or brake. And the scene itself doesn’t show any evidence of braking. It’s very unusual. The city of Sunnyvale is a very safe city, so, to hear about a tragedy like this, it’s just unheard of.”

Marjorie Taylor Greene Plans to Introduce Articles of Impeachment Against President Biden ON DAY ONE
She’s citing Biden family corruption.
Georgia freshman Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is planning on introducing articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden the day after he’s inaugurated.
Greene made the announcement on Wednesday.
On January 21st, I’m filing Articles of Impeachment on President-elect @JoeBiden.
75 million Americans are fed up with inaction.
— Marjorie Taylor Greene 🇺🇸 (@mtgreenee) January 14, 2021
Greene is citing Biden family corruption, accusing Biden of standing by as his own relatives enriched themselves through business deals with foreign oligarchs, using the former Vice President’s family name.
Biden game-planned on messaging to dismiss his son Hunter’s involvement with corrupt Ukrainian oil company Burisma, receiving advice from the State Department while accusing the company’s oligarch owner of criminal activity. It didn’t occur to Biden to address the fact that his own son secured highly lucrative employment with Burisma until the topic became a point of political contention in the 2020 election.
Biden’s brother, Jim Biden, has also been accused of securing lucrative business deals in China under the auspices of the Biden family name. Biden has steadfastly refused to speak in detail about suspicious Biden family business dealings, even though he’s gone so far as to openly brag about securing the termination of a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Hunter Biden and Burisma for laundering profits of the former state-owned enterprise.
Greene is demanding that Biden be held accountable for the de facto licensure of his family name in Ukraine, an international liability that far surpasses anything proven to be real through a lengthy investigation into Donald Trump’s supposed connections of Russia.
The articles of impeachment are doomed from the get-go, with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi assured to protect Biden from allegations of corruption and poor governance. However, the Democratic Party has been unable to resist turning the presidential impeachment process into a wholly partisan, reactionary affair, and may reap the whirlwinds of their decision if Republicans willing to hold the establishment politician accountable gain majorities in the House and the Senate.
