Police told the dpa news agency that an 84-year-old man apparently stepped on the accelerator instead of the brake, slamming into the cafe in the town of Bad Saeckingen on the border with Switzerland.

One 63-year-old woman died at the scene and a man died later in hospital.

The driver is also being treated, police said.
