Photographers snapped pictures of suspect Richard Rojas, 26, after he climbed from the wrecked car and ran through the street.

He was tackled by a group that included a ticket seller and a muscular door supervisor at a nearby Planet Hollywood restaurant.

Ken Bradix, a longtime Planet Hollywood employee, works right near the site of the deadly crash that killed an 18-year-old woman, and injured 22 others.

Bradix and a sightseeing ticket seller wrestled the fleeing suspect to the ground before police took over.
