Several pedestrians were struck at the intersection of Metropolitan Avenue and Woodhaven Boulevard in Forest Hills when an elderly driver stepped on the gas instead of the break, jumping the car from the street on to the sidewalk. The pedestrians were allegedly waiting for the bus. Those struck suffered non-life threatening injuries and were transported to an area hospital.
