Pedestrian Hit, Seriously Injured in Poway DMV Parking Lot: SDSO

A pedestrian suffered serious injuries after she was struck by a car in the Poway DMV parking lot, San Diego Sheriff's Officials (SDSO) said. 

The crash happened at approximately 1:38 p.m. Wednesday when a 67-year-old driver from Poway was backing up in the parking lot, deputies said. 

Instead of pressing the brake pedal, the driver accidently hit the gas pedal, deputies said. 

The car backed up quickly and sideswiped an occupied, parked car, before striking a 39-year-old woman standing in the parking lot. 

The impact of the crash pushed the victim into a parke pick-up truck and pinched her legs between the two cars, deputies said. 

The victim was taken to Palomar Hospital for treatment. 

The driver did not suffer any injuries. 

Anyone with information on the crash is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477; you will remain anonymous.

No other information was immediately available.
