Two people were hospitalized on July 17 after a driver hit a water stand at the Ralphs at Del Mar Highlands Town Center.

The accident was reported at 2:40 p.m. San Diego police Officer Gerry Waclawek said the 89-year-old female driver backed her 1999 Toyota sedan into water bottle packages outside of the grocery store, hitting a 53-year-old female pedestrian.

Both the driver and the pedestrian were taken to Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla with minor injuries.

  1. I was a witness, I was doing cart duty, when this happened, the person that was trying to get to the store quickly, the 89 year old put the car in reverse instead of accelerating forward. I witnessed it about 2:30 p.m. that is when it really happened. I have worked for the company for eight years, this was the day I saw it and I nearly got hit by the car too. I was lucky that it missed me, but the customer was hurt. Shame on the driver for not remember to look first. Drivers should learn to slow down.
