HYATTSVILLE, Md. (WJLA) - One of the six people struck by a car in the parking lot of a Home Depot in Hyattsville on Thursday has died, authorities say.

Prince George's County Fire officials say the incident occurred in the parking lot at The Home Depot at 3301 East-West Highway in Hyattsville.

In total, seven people were hospitalized with injuries from the accident, including the victim who died and the driver. At least one other person was reported to be in critical condition.

Police say the driver of the striking vehicle, a black male in his 60's, went to The Home depot to go shopping. When they realized the store was closed, they began to leave.

While leaving the parking lot, the driver suffered a medical emergency and lost control of his vehicle, which then struck six people who were standing on an island in the parking lot.

The accident is still under investigation.
