The woman had been in court with her husband, Martinez police Cmdr. Eric Ghisletta told CBS News. The three victims were taken to the hospital with moderate injuries. She also hit a woman when she was reversing to leave the scene.

The Benicia Police Department got a call about 20 minutes later about a woman who drove a car through a concrete median then jumped from the Benicia-Martinez Bridge, according to KABC.

Police found a car matching the description of the one that hit the pedestrians near the courthouse crashed at the scene. A woman's body was found under the bridge.

 She has not been identified. The names of the victims were also not released.
