A total of seven vehicles were damaged after the elderly driver of a blue Subaru briefly lost control in a parking lot near the Beacon Hill Children’s Farm on Sunday.

At roughly 3 p.m., the single blue hatchback collided with 6 other parked vehicles in a Circle Drive parking lot before coming to rest on top of another vehicle, crushing its hood and part of its windshield.

No bystanders were injured in the incident, but sources who were at the scene say that an elderly female passenger in the Subaru was taken to hospital.

The series of crashes temporarily closed Circle Drive while crews investigated and cleaned up the debris.

Police are investigating the possibility the driver may have mistaken the accelerator for the brake pedal.
