The SUV then crashed into the front of the Highland Market.

Four victims were rushed to a hospital with serious to critical injuries.

Perez, a member of the Fox11 crew who were in the neighborhood to cover the reopening of the El Capitan at 6838 Hollywood Boulevard, was among the victims struck in the accident.

The driver of the SUV was uninjured and was taken into custody on suspicion of DUI.

Hollywood Boulevard was closed at Highway Avenue for the investigation.

The investigation is ongoing.
