A San Diego elderly driver accident left two people injured and several cars damaged at the Plaza Bonita Mall Saturday.

Police say a 76-year-old driver lost control of her car in the mall’s parking garage, veering into a couple and hitting at least seven parked cars.

According to officials, woman was clipped by the car and her husband was thrown onto the hood before ending up being pinned underneath it. Neither suffered life-threatening injuries.

The 76-year-old driver was transported to the hospital.

There are nearly 2.5 million drivers in California over the age of 70. The DMV respects driver independence, but encourages all seniors to be vigilant about their health and the impact it may have on driving. The California DMV has issued a thorough Senior Guide for Safe Driving. There are also driving tests seniors can take to test their skills as well as eyesight.

"Words can never express the gratitude that my husband and I have for Attorney Steven Elia and attorney Holly Attiq.. For 2 years, we were put through fire with our personal injury case, but luckily we met Steven and Holly, that made the brutal process of litigation as comfortable as it can be for our family. And even after the dust came down, they still check on us very often and offer their services to try to help us to stand back on our feet."
