LIMA, Ohio (AP) — A hospital in northwest Ohio says two people injured after a woman drove her car into a crowded town square have been released.

A spokeswoman with St. Rita's Medical Center in Lima says the two patients had been in stable condition since Saturday. She would not say when the patients were released or the extent of their injuries.

Two other patients remain at the hospital. One is in critical but stable condition, and the other has been upgraded to stable condition. The hospital also would not release details of their injuries.

Police say none of the injuries sustained by about 30 people during the weekly community event Friday night were life-threatening.

Authorities said Sunday they believe the 63-year-old woman unintentionally drove her vehicle into the crowd.
