Gas and brake confused – retired runs to garden center
A 76-year-old drove his car in a garden center near Dortmund. He suffered minor injuries.
He had apparently confused gas and brake: 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 entered the parking garage in front of the garden center instead of the brake on the accelerator and drove through the shop window, the police spokesman continued. He came to a halt just 25 meters behind him. Earlier, the & # 39; Hellweger Anzeiger & # 39; and the & # 39; Bild & # 39; newspaper reported.
