An 11-car wreck on U.S. 30 in Hobart ended with a vehicle plowing into nine cars and a pedestrian in the Chuck E. Cheese parking lot. 

"The officer at the scene said it was the largest car accident that he has seen in his career and he's been a police officer for 15 years, so it was pretty substantial," Lt. James Gonzales of the Hobart Police Department said. 

Police were dispatched to the scene at 3:49 p.m. Saturday. 

The chain of events began when a 70-year-old man, who has a history of seizures, was driving westbound on U.S. 30 and struck a car in front of Avalon Manor, Gonzales said.

His vehicle continued traveling at a high rate of speed, hitting another car on U.S. 30 and jumping the curb, crashing into nine cars in the parking lot of Chuck E. Cheese in Hobart. 

The man was stuck in the vehicle and had to be assisted by first responders to get out. He was transported to a hospital for minor injuries and is currently in stable condition with no serious wounds, Gonzales said. 

A person who was standing in the parking lot between two vehicles was struck and transported to the hospital with minor injuries. One other driver also complained of minor injuries, but police said no one was severely injured, Gonzales said.
