MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — A Florida man faces multiple charges after police say he drove his Mercedes-Benz into a group of people on a sidewalk in Miami Beach, injuring three adults and two infants.

Miami Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez says the infants remain in critical condition on Monday morning with skull fractures and other injuries.

The police statement says 29-year-old Matthew Timothy Miller was also taken to the hospital following the Sunday afternoon crash. The arrest report says an officer asked Miller to provide a sample for a blood-alcohol test, but he refused and asked for a lawyer. He was arrested on five charges including reckless driving and driving with a suspended license and taken to jail, where he remained Monday morning.
