Caught on camera: Car drives into Halloween festival

- No one was seriously injured when a car when barreling into the middle of a Halloween festival in eastern Arizona on Thursday night.

Terrifying footage shows the car driving right into the crowd at a Halloween festival on the San Carlos Apache Reservation. There were more than two dozen parents and children on a stage for a costume contest when the contest's host noticed a car driving right through the crowd and appeared to be headed for the stage.

The car started speeding up as it got closer to the stage, but at the last minute it veered right into a crowd of people. 

Jeremiah Martinez shot the video and says he was barely able to get children out of the way. He also said he's thankful that he and his family members are still alive and that the driver kept going as police chased after her.

The driver was arrested about a mile away and she faces multiple charges, including DUI, aggravated assault and leaving the scene of an accident.

Her identity has not been released by police.
