Would this punishment be different if it were a younger person?

76 year old woman drives through a grocery store and hits 10 people, including a baby in a stroller, who luckily wasn't hurt. There were injuries but no deaths.  She says she hit the gas instead of the brake. She is charged with Careless Driving.

I'm surprised it didn't include harsher charges.

Yeah like destruction of property, endangering of a minor, etc there could be more. Wonder why they didn't.

That hapened when I worked at mc donalds. Once an old lady mistook the gas for the break, drove right into the store, luckily it was early and there was oone in the lobby at that time.

I think its crazy how most people just walk over like 'what?' when I would have been sprinting to see if the people she hit were ok

I noticed that too. Maybe they're in shock?

I guess so...I mean that is just my first reaction is to make sure those people weren't dead...its a good thing that baby was in the infant seat attached to that travel stroller.

I mean we had a dog fight right infront of my house and my 1st reaction was to make sure ds was safe and my 2nd was(right after it was over and the dogs were under control) to make sure the owner of the 1dog that was attacked was ok and to see if her dog was ok.
