Florida Highway Patrol: 2 dead, others injured after driver backs car outside clubhouse

Two people are dead and several injured after a woman backed her car into a group of pedestrians outside a Florida clubhouse.

Lt. Gregory Bueno with the Florida Highway Patrol says the accident happened Sunday in Bradenton, about 45 miles south of Tampa.

Bueno says a woman backed her car in a parking lot at the Sugar Creek Country Club, where church services were going on.

The driver struck a small crowd of pedestrians, leaving two dead and others injured. The number of people injured was not immediately available.

The car came to a stop in a lake adjacent to the clubhouse. The driver does not appear to have been seriously injured.
