1 killed, 6 hurt as SUV hits group at ice cream shop in Calif.

BUENA PARK, Calif. — An SUV driven by an elderly motorist plowed into a group of people waiting to enter an Orange County ice cream parlor Friday evening, killing a 60-year-old woman and injuring six others, authorities said.

The SUV rammed into people outside Farrell's Ice Cream Parlour shortly after 6 p.m., Orange County Fire Authority Capt. Steve Concialdi said. The restaurant in is Buena Park, about 20 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles.

Witnesses said the SUV surged forward. "It looked like the guy put his foot on the gas pedal instead of the brake," Daniel Long, who was eating with his family inside, told KCAL-TV.

    Soccer

    ST. PETERSBURG — The good news for the Rowdies is that they still haven't lost a game at Al Lang Stadium since late April. The bad news is they had to settle for a 1-1 tie against Ottawa on Saturday night in front of 6,710 sweaty fans.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG —The six runs seemed like a ton, just the second time the Rays had scored that many in a game during their numbing two-plus-weeks stretch of offensive impotency, and amazingly, the first time at the Trop in nearly two months.

    Lucas Duda connects for a two-run home run in the sixth, getting the Rays within 7-5. A Logan Morrison home run in the ninth made it 7-6, but Tampa Bay couldn’t complete the comeback.
