Wednesday evening Amarillo Police Department officers responded to a wreck on 15th and Washington.

According to police, a 73-year-old man pulled out a parking lot on south Washington attempting to drive north on Washington. The vehicle accelerated and turned west. The vehicle then got onto the sidewalk, nearly hit a traffic light pole, struck a 59-year-old female standing at a bus bench and drove into the Toot'N Totum.

The woman was taken to a hospital with what is believed to be non-life threatening injuries. Investigators say the driver of the vehicle told police that he did not know what caused the uncontrolled acceleration.
