Brewer Police say two people were hit by a car in the parking lot at Lowe's.

Sergeant Nelson Feero said a married couple was hit as they were loading items they had just purchased at Lowe's into the back of their pickup truck.

A woman who was parked across the lane from them told police her accelerator pedal got stuck and she backed into the couple. Both victims sustained leg injuries and were taken to the hospital in separate ambulances.

There's no word on their identities or the severity of those injuries. Police didn't say whether the woman would face charges for the accident.

We'll update this story as more details become available.
