An accident in the parking lot of the Lowe's in Brewer sent two people to a hospital.

It happened a little after Noon when the couple was loading items they just bought into the back of a pickup.

According to Brewer police another couple was backing up and either the accelerator stuck or the driver hit the wrong pedal.

The car slammed into the injured couple.

"We're looking in to the situation but I'm not sure if she hit the wrong pedal or what happened," said Sgt. Nelson Feero of the Brewer Police Department. "But there was plenty of witnesses around who described the revving of the engine and then the people being struck."

The names of the man and woman taken to the hospital were not released, but Sgt. Feero said they had leg injuries and were alert and talking when they were placed in the ambulance.
