An elderly woman died and five people were injured after an 86-year-old man drove his SUV into the window of a bank in Velletri, a town close to Rome, on Friday morning.

The 70-year-old woman was in the bank collecting her pension when the incident happened, according to a report on Leggo.it.

Five other people were injured, with two in hospital in Velletri. The injuries are not believed to be life-threatening.
