Suds To Be You! Video Captures Elderly Man Barreling Through California Car Wash

Recommended Posts

Nothing could have prepared Quick Quack Car Wash employees for the moment when a 94 year-old man suddenly careened through their Sacramento, California business last Friday.

Security cameras captured the carnage as the elderly driver's white Oldsmobile sedan barrelled through the automated wash lane at speeds of up to 40 mph, risking the lives of employees and damaging equipment. After narrowly missing a Honda Civic, the driver's wash from hell abruptly ended after slamming into a car wash vacuum, the Oldsmobile curiously landing arrow-straight in an immediate parking space after impact.

The driver of the Oldsmobile accidentally hit the gas pedal instead of the brakes, causing the crash to happen.

Speaking to a local FOX News affliate, site manager Mitch Shiveley said the elderly man walked away from the scene unharmed. No employees or other customers were injuried.

Despite damages totaling almost $100,000, Quick Quack quickly cleaned up most of the mess and was back to washing cars by Monday afternoon.

I know this is pretty serious and exceptionally dangerous, but it reminds me of that scene in Ace Ventura. "Like a glove"
