Market Crash in Florida

By  | 

A Florida fire official says an elderly driver claims his gas pedal stuck before he crashed into a farmer's market.

Flagler Beach Fire Chief Jon Macdonald says the 79-year-old man was in the parking lot getting ready to leave the market when he rammed into several vehicles and then hit several people.

Macdonald says six people were taken to hospitals, but none had life-threatening injuries.

A seven-year-old girl is the worst hurt, after the car ran over her leg.

Macdonald says the man "was very upset that somebody got hurt."

The crash comes nine days after a crash near Los Angeles, where an elderly driver killed ten people at a farmer's market.
