He apparently confuses gas and brakes: a 76-year-old drove in Bergkamen in the Ruhr area with his car in a garden center and caused considerable damage.
The man was slightly wounded by the accident on Thursday, a police spokesman said. A 50-year-old woman also suffered minor injuries from flying glass splinters. The 76-year-old had the accelerator and the brake confused when he parked in front of the garden center and drove through the shop window.
Only 25 meters behind him he came to a standstill, according to the police spokesman. Earlier, the & # 39; Hellweger Anzeiger & # 39; and the & # 39; Bild & # 39; newspaper reported.
