Another man, aged in his 70s, suffered chest pains while a woman in her 40s was distressed.

All were taken to the Monash Medical Centre and are in a stable condition.

Victoria Police say it is believed that a man mistook driving the car mistook the accelerator for the brake.

The driver, and sole occupant, then lost control of the vehicle causing the car to strike a parked car before mounting the footpath on Clayton Road.

The car then travelled along the footpath for a distance, before colliding with a wall of a business.

A 74-year-old Clayton South man was among those conveyed to hospital with minor injuries.

The investigation is ongoing.
