Elderly man crashes into two people in Cayucos


A 79-year-old man driving a truck crashed into and seriously injured two people at the Shoreline Inn in Cayucos on Saturday, according to the CHP.

Shortly before 6 p.m., the elderly man from Fresno was attempting to back into a parking spot at the hotel, when he accidentally hit the gas pedal, and crashed into a picnic bench where two people were sitting. The impact threw two people sitting on the bench to the ground.

Responders transported the victims, a 71-year-old woman from Fresno and a 66-year-old woman from Lemoore, to a local hospital. Both women suffered major injuries in the collision.

Officers do not believe drugs or alcohol were factors in the accident.
