An 87-year-old driver pulling into a handicapped parking spot inadvertently hit his accelerator and crashed into a medical office in Santa Ana early Tuesday, injuring a patient and her physician.

Santa Ana police said the driver intended to hit the brake pedal but pressed the accelerator instead, veering down a small grassy slope before slamming into the Diamond Medical Office at 999 N. Tustin Ave.

The patient and her doctor suffered minor injuries from flying glass and other debris when the Lexus crashed through a large glass wall before coming to a stop halfway into the medical office.

The driver, who was not identified, was uninjured.
