A horrendous scene in San Jose when an elderly driver trying to park the car accidentally hit the gas pedal and plowed into outdoor diners at a Chinese restaurant.

Three women and five men suffered injuries and police say at least two have life threatening injuries, reported NBC Bay Area.

“The wheels were spinning and there was smoke coming from the car and then it jumped the lane,” said Buck Suggs of San Jose.

It happened at the Dynasty Chinese Seafood Restaurant.

Kim Tang told ABC7 News the driver made an unexpected right turn and drove over dividers and into the crowd.

“I looked out and I saw a van driving toward us,” said Tang.

“Indications are the elderly male may have been in medical distress prior to the collision. The incident was reported at 12:27pm. No other information is available at this time,” police said in a statement.
