MIAMI — An elderly woman trying to parallel park instead accelerated into a South Beach restaurant’s outdoor seating area Thursday night — killing one person and injuring six others, police say.

Around 6 p.m., Miami Beach police and fire responded to a crash at Call Me Gaby, a restaurant at 22 Washington Ave.

The woman hit several tables in the outdoor café area of the restaurant — sending seven people to the hospital, where one of them died, police said.

Washington Avenue between South Pointe Drive and First Street are closed as detectives continue their investigation.

One video shared via Twitter showed smoke billowing from the restaurant as a crowd of people ran away.
