One man died and two pedestrians were critically injured after a driver struck them at San Francisco International Airport on Monday, police said.

A driver in black Ford Expedition struck three pedestrians and at least one another vehicle on the arrivals level of the international terminal around 3:30 p.m., according to police. The victims were transported to the hospital but 33-year-old Jedidiah Crews succumbed to his injuries by 4:28 p.m.

The other two pedestrians hit, one man and one woman, remain in critical condition as of Tuesday morning. 

Police say the 46-year-old driver had accelerated from the curb but did not show signs of impairment and that the collision did not appear intentional. He remained on the scene and was later arrested. 

UPDATE, 2:45 p.m.: The two pedestrians are still at the hospital but are no longer in critical condition. 

Police added that the 46-year-old driver, Athmane Oukal, was booked into San Mateo County Jail on one count of vehicular manslaughter and one count of driving at an unsafe speed.
