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.
