We don’t know why the 96-year old driver of this black sedan lost control of his car, but he should still consider himself lucky, despite suffering leg and spinal injuries, as he wasn’t killed in this terrifying accident.

He also assumes that what happened prior to the crash was that the elderly man “mixed up the accelerator and brake.” Aside from the driver’s previously-mentioned injuries, nobody else was harmed, even though there were people in the vicinity.

“An announcement came over the PA asking for the drivers of two cars, one with my registration number, to come to the reception area immediately. I saw police cars, fire trucks, and ambulances everywhere. Luckily nobody was killed.”
