George Russell Weller is 89 years old. He does not have a criminal record. He told police he had no idea how the car he was driving three years ago accelerated through a crowded farmers market, striking and killing 10 people and injuring 60 more before it finally came to a stop. He spoke of the "poor people" he hurt, and of how he should have listened to his wife and never driven to the post office to mail that letter. He just wanted his niece, who was getting married that weekend, to get the card.
