PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- An elderly Pleasantville man and his wife were slightly injured when he mistakenly stepped on the gas pedal instead of the brake and hit a fence, flipping their vehicle, police said.
The accident occurred Saturday in a parking lot on Marble Avenue, said Pleasantville Police Chief Erik Grutzner.
A Good Samaritan from a nearby apartment complex nearby heard the accident and called 911.
Grutzner said both the husband and wife were transported to a local hospital, but that their injuries were minor.
