Accidents involving elderly drivers have become rather often in Japan. In February, a similar accident took place when a car crashed into the ground floor of the pharmacy, killing one person and injuring three others. The reason behind the accidents is believed to be weakened concentration of elderly drivers due to which they confuse the brake and gas pedals.
