COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A man who drove into a graveside service at a South Carolina cemetery is expected in court on 12 counts of attempted murder.
Columbia Police say a bond hearing is scheduled Thursday for 64-year-old James Kester. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.
Authorities say they believe Kester intentionally hit mourners with his car during a service Wednesday at Greenlawn Cemetery. Authorities say 12 people were struck. Deputy Police Chief Melron Kelly says none of the injuries appeared to be life threatening.
Television footage showed a car stopped in the middle of dozens of graves.
Police haven't talked about why they think Kester hit the mourners or whether he had any connection to the graveside service.
