Elderly Driver Crashes into Building, Kills Man

An elderly driver pulling into a parking spot at a Tierrasanta medical building was unable to put her foot on the brake, and to stop her car as it crashed into the lobby of the building, striking a man. The accident occurred two weeks ago, but police will recommend the 89-year-old driver be charged with vehicular manslaughter after man died due to his injuries.

According to reports, the car ran over a pole and into the glass windows that fronted the building. The man was visiting his dentist, and was pushed back 20 feet and pinned against a wall before being freed by firefighters. He suffered multiple fractures, and went into cardiopulmonary arrest at the scene. He never recovered.
