Comments Off

While in the parking lot of a medical clinic this morning, a 92-year-old driver hit the gas instead of the brake, causing his vehicle to crash into a wall, a curb, two parked cars and a 62-year-old pedestrian, killing him, authorities said.

The series of crashes leading up to the pedestrian accident started at approximately 8:50 a.m. on Friday, beside a Kaiser Permanete Clinic located on Avocado Boulevard in Rancho San Diego, said an officer with the California Highway Patrol.

The man was pronounced dead shortly after the accident occurred at 10 a.m., authorities said. Authorities have not identified the driver and the accident is still pending investigation.
