The crash occurred about 1 p.m. in the underground lot adjacent the Ralphs grocery store at 211 N. Glendale Ave.

The vehicle entered the south entrance off East Wilson Avenue and traveled through the parking structure in front of the grocery store at a high rate of speed, Glendale Police Department spokeswoman Tahnee Lightfoot said.

"We have a lot of foot traffic, a lot of people grocery shopping at this time of day, so very lucky that other individuals were injured," Lightfoot said.

It was not known if the driver had a medical condition or if there were problems with the vehicle, she said.

The two people found dead inside the vehicle were described by police Sgt. Robert Williams as elderly women. Investigators with the county coroner's office arrived around 5 p.m., and police said the victims had not been identified by early evening.

The vehicle appeared to be a bronze Mercedes-Benz sedan, video from the scene showed.
