was struck by a vehicle in the store parking lot. This car
accident happened after 4 p.m. and involved five parked cars. A witness reported
that the driver accelerated when backing up and pinned the store employee
while hitting another person, the parked cars, and a shopping cart corral.
Police reported that the victim is in his 20s or 30s and sustained minor
injuries but was taken to a local hospital. The accident is being investigated
to determine if it was driver error or a mechanical issue that caused

that take place in parking lots. The National Safety Council surveyed
thousands of drivers in the U.S. and found that two-thirds of drivers
admittedly talked on cell phones while driving in parking lots and more
than half admitted to texting and driving while driving in parking lots.
