A woman who was injured when a man trying to park his SUV accelerated and crashed into an outdoor dining area in Northern California has died, authorities said Tuesday.
The woman died Monday in a hospital, San Jose police Sgt. Christian Camarillo said. She and seven others were taken to the hospital after the crash Sunday at a parking lot of the Grand Century Mall in San Jose. The conditions of the other seven injured people were not immediately known.
Officers initially said the 69-year-old driver may have been in medical distress prior to the crash. The man was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
A mile away and less than six hours later, a man was fatally injured Sunday near a food truck in a parking lot when a woman accidentally stepped on her pickup’s gas pedal instead of the brake. He also died Monday, Camarrillo said.
