Driver Rams SUV Into Ice Cream Parlour: Kills One, Leaves Six Injured

 SUV Rams Into Ice Cream Parlour: One Dead Six Injured

Claiming the life of a 73-year old woman and leaving six injured, an SUV recently surged forward from a parking lot full of people and rammed into an ice-cream parlour in the Los Angeles area.

Reports reveal that the SUV was driven by an elderly man, who supposedly hit his foot on the gas pedal instead of the brake, causing the silver Suzuki XL7 to ram itself into the people waiting outside Farrell’s Ice Cream Parlour in Buena Park, around 20 miles to the southeast of downtown Los Angeles.

The television reports show the SUV halfway into the parking space with its front end rammed into the fence onto a walkway. Witnesses say that the SUV suddenly lurched forward and hit those sitting and standing in its way.

“It looked like the guy put his foot on the gas pedal instead of the brake,” Daniel Long, an eyewitness who was eating with his family inside, explained. “There were three people sitting on that bench — he just went straight into them and crushed them up against the window.”

The woman 73, who was hit by the SUV succumbed to her injuries and died in the hospital whereas among the six injured, there was a teenage girl. All the six apparently had minor injuries, while the driver, along with his wife, both of whom were elderly, were not hurt and immediately co-operated with the police.
