BRADENTON, Fla. - Two people are dead and six others have been hospitalized after a woman backed her car into a group of pedestrians outside a Florida clubhouse.

Lt. Gregory Bueno of 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 taking place.

The driver struck a crowd of pedestrians. One person was pronounced dead at the scene, and a second died after being transported to a nearby hospital.

Six others have been hospitalized. Their conditions were not immediately known.

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