BERLIN (AP) — Two people were killed and more than 10 hospitalized after an elderly man lost control of his car on Saturday and plowed into a crowded cafe patio in southern Germany.

Police told the dpa news agency that the 84-year-old man apparently stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake, slamming into the cafe in the town of Bad Saeckingen on the border with Switzerland,.

One 63-year-old woman died at the scene and a man died later in hospital.

The driver is also being treated, police said.
