Fayette County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Allen Stevens says an elderly couple was pulling into a parking space when the driver hit the accelerator instead of the brake.

Stevens says two people were hit. They were transported to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The passengers in the car also suffered non-life threatening injuries.
