Federal officials say several grave stones, a light post and a grassy area were damaged after an elderly woman accidentally hit the accelerator and proceeded to drive through a portion of the cemetery. No one was injured.

The State of Hawaii and the Department of Defense, which includes the Office of Veterans Services, are working quickly to repair the damage.
