PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. - The Palm Beach County Sheriff's said two people were killed Thursday evening after an 80-year-old woman crashed her vehicle into Publix, killing herself and a pedestrian.

The incident occurred at 5:09 p.m. at a Publix located at the intersection of Lake Ida and Jog roads.

Investigators said the driver, identified as Sarah Agosta, was driving a 2018 Kia Soul when she lost control and accelerated toward the grocery store.

A pedestrian, identified as Eric Small, 71, had exited the Publix and was walking west toward his car.

Agosta and Small were transported to Delray Medical Center where they both died of their injuries.
