A woman was killed and seven others were taken to a hospital after a vehicle crashed into a restaurant's outside eating area, authorities in Washington, D.C. said on Friday.

Several of the victims have life-threatening injuries, officials with DC Fire and EMS said.

Police believe the crash, which happened around noon, is an accident.

They say an elderly man lost control while driving.

"There were no indications this was intentional,” said Second District Cmdr. Duncan Bedlion.

Police added that the driver is being cooperative. It's unclear whether he will face charges.
