There was a hundred-year old man in Los Angeles leaving a grocery store near an elementary school. As his car was in reverse, he mistakenly hit a crowd of several people, sending 11 of them to a hospital. Most of the people hit were school children who were just released from school. However there were no serious injuries reported.

“A 100-year-old man is apologetic after barreling into a crowd of mostly school kids in Los Angeles and sending 11 people to the hospital.

“I’m sorry,” Preston Carter told CNN affiliate KTLA. “I lost control of the car. The brakes failed, I think.”

Nine children and two adults were taken to hospitals, according to Erik Scott, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department.”
