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.
