A Florida woman has been charged with a DUI after she allegedly ran her car into a couple at a Christmas parade in Vero Beach.

72-year-old Susan Harvey was arrested and charged with driving under the influence after they say her blood alcohol level was almost twice the legal limit. She drove into the couple, reportedly both in their 90s, and knocked them unconscious. They were taken to the hospital and are expected to recover.

Police say the Christmas parade was wrapping up and the elderly couple was putting their chairs into their car trunk when Harvey reportedly drove into them.

Witnesses say they surrounded Harvey's car to prevent her from doing any more driving.

Harvey posted a $500 bail and was freed from jail. Investigators say she could be slapped with more charges depending on the outcome of their findings.
