Elderly Couple Crashes Car Through Golden Corral

DALLAS (AP) Five people were injured when an elderly man crashed his Cadillac into the dining room of a buffet restaurant.

Authorities say the wife of the driver and four customers were taken to area hospitals yesterday.

Police say the driver and his wife appeared to be in their 70s or 80s. It was too soon to say whether the driver would be charged with a crime.

The man was trying to park and hit the accelerator instead of the brake. Television footage showed the car had driven through the outer wall of the restaurant, coming to rest completely inside the dining room.
