A 99 year old man visiting his wife at the convalescent hospital across the street confused the gas pedal for the brake as he was backing out of a parking spot.  He rocketed across the street, taking out a fire hydrant, hit the next door neighbor’s SUV pushing it into the other SUV parked in front of it, took out a small citrus tree, then our common fence.  The rock you see is from my yard, and slowed the car enough to prevent serious damage to the house.  The gentleman was not injured, and was able to wait for his son to come pick him up.  Fall, 2007.
