PALM COAST, Fla. (AP) - A 76-year-old woman who drove her car into a Publix supermarket and injured 10 people has been fined and her driver's license has been suspended for three months.
During a hearing on Thursday Judge Sharon Atack ruled that Thelma Wagenhoffer must take a driving test before she can get her license back. The Daytona News Journal (http://bit.ly/Oqh2yi ) reports the judge checked to see if she could suspend the license even longer.
When Wagenhoffer had difficulty hearing the judge, a bailiff gave her headphones that connected to the courtroom's audio system. She entered a no contest plea on the careless driving charge. She was fined $500.
In April, Wagenhoffer's car plowed through the supermarket's entrance, mowing down shoppers, including an elderly man who was pinned under her car.
